  • Episode Description
  • Topanga develops an acute case of Cory-itis after he overreacts to his low score in a magazine's health quiz (which indicates he should already be dead). Meanwhile, Eric joins the family business and shocks his father by doing well at it—while Amy, in turn, is shocked at Alan's lack of faith in his son.
