  • Quotes (7)

    • Eric: I wish I was going with you, Jack. Fighting the good fight. Jack: You would've made a great soldier. I would've loved to have you by my side. Eric: You still can, pal. Here. (unfolds an 8x10) It's a picture of me. I want you to take it with you. Put it in the foxhole, over your bed. Jack: People will talk. Eric: I know. That's a great picture.

    • Eric: Everybody's doing their part in this war. I want to help. I'm going back to that recruitment office and tell them that a little case of flat feet isn't gonna stop Eric Matthews from fighting those evil Canadians. Alan: I have a feeling it's not the flat feet.

    • Amy: Oh no. Surely the army can make due without at least one of my men! Eric: They wouldn't take me. I have flat feet and I'm too ticklish. Apparently I'm a torture risk.

    • Shawn: Cory, we're going down to enlist. Uncle Sam wants us. I wasn't gonna go but he was pointing right at me.

    • Topanga: You know, he asked her to marry him on December 7th, 1941. Cory: Wait, I know that date. Help me out here. Shawn: Pearl Harbor. "The day that will live in infamy". Feeny was just talking about it. Cory: You listened to Feeny. Shawn: Oh my God! I listened to Feeny!

    Notes (1)

    • This episode was part of a special edition of TGIF. All four Friday night sitcoms were loosely connected by a running plot, in which Salem transported the respective casts into different decades.

    Trivia (3)

    • At the beginning of the episode Mr. Feeny tells the class that the United States entered World War 2 on December 7th, 1941 as FDR said, "A day that will live in infamy." This is a misquote as FDR actually said, "A date which will live in infamy."

    • When Mr. Feeny announces that the United States is at war, he and the students are at school, which implies it was a weekday. December 7, 1941, the day of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and the day the USA joined the war, was a Sunday.

    • At the beginning of the episode, Cory forgets his books on his desk as he leaves, talking to Topanga.

    Allusions (2)

    • Episode Title: No Guts, No Cory The title is a play on the saying, "No guts, no glory," which means one can go far in life only by taking risks.

    • Mr. Feeny: Why aren't you down at the factory with Rosie and the other ladies? Posters featuring "Rosie the Riveter", were part of a government campaign to encourage women to help with the war effort.
