Quotes (6)

  • Shawn: Well, it's really not for me to say, but underneath the clothes...nude.

  • Shawn: This girl is exotic, there's something mysterious about her. She looks like her name would be Amaretto; or Frangelica; or Kahlua.

  • Cory: Great. Now I have to find an above average girl who is into destructive, gender-biased thinking.

  • Ingrid (discussing her name): It is foreign. It's Swedish. Shawn: Wait a minute. You mean, like Swedish from Switzerland?

  • Topanga (talking about the dance): Well, I'm not going. Cory: My only hope. I mean, why? Topanga: It's a protest. The concept of a turnaround dance implies that all the other times only the boys can do the asking. That's destructive gender-biased thinking and we have to get beyond that! Shawn: Why?

  • Shawn (looking at the poster on the wall): Turnaround dance, huh? Girls ask the guys. Merry Christmas to me!
