    • Cory: Pregnant? How can she be pregnant? Shawn: Okay, Cory, let me explain this to you. When a man loves a woman… Cory: I know about that, okay? We were very careful. Shawn: Did you use a… Cory: Yes! Shawn: Was she on the… Cory: Uh-huh! Shawn: Well, did you try the… Cory: Everything! I’m not even sure we had sex!

    • Eric: Topanga, I can't do this, okay? Women reject me based on who I am, not what I look like.

    • Eric: You never breast fed me! Alan: Eric… Eric: You didn't either! Breast fed kids are skinny, formula fed kids are fat. You know, at first I blamed it on myself. I thought maybe glands, and then I thought maybe metabolism, but then I thought to myself I'm no racist, so it all goes back to you guys. Alan: Listen, Porky, we're in the middle of a serious family discussion here.

    • Mr. Feeny: Unfortunately we live in a society where they tell us we have to look a certain way, so we're all under pressure to live up to unrealistic expectations. Jack: Alright, I can't take it anymore. You know, I'm not really perfect. You know why I go to the gym? It's because in high school, they…well they used to have this little nickname for me. It was Jumbo Jack. Eric (laughs): Jumbo Jack! You were fat! Jack: I was, alright? I just wanted people to like me. Eric: Oh, that's alright. I like you, Jumbo Jack.

    • Cory: Topanga, why in the world would you want to go on a diet? Rachel: Topanga, you're gorgeous. Topanga: Eric, tell them I'm fat. Eric: You're not fat, you're hot. I just told you you're fat so you'd give me your pizza.
