    • Eric (singing, unaware of Cory's departure): Happy happy happy birthday! Happy happy happy birthda-ay! It's his day, his day of birth, yeah, that's right, his first day on earth! Happy bir-er-er-erth day, yeah!

    • Shawn: Cory, the first thing I learned on the street, is that any judge who spontaneously makes you balloon toys will, at the end of the day, actually hang you.

    • Cory (playing football with Morgan): Down. Set. Hike. Button-hook! (throws the ball and hits Morgan in the back) Morgan: Ow. Why'd you do that? Cory: Because I called a button-hook you woman! I didn't say stop and go. I didn't say down and out. I didn't say post. I said button-hook. Now was the ball not there waiting for you? Morgan: If you don't stop yelling, I'm going upstairs to play with Barbie and Skipper.

    • Topanga: Cory, I don't get it. You and your father have always gotten along great. Cory: Yeah, cause I've always been safe and dependable Cory. Well tonight a new Cory is born. Dark wild Cory; built for speed. 24, 25, 26. Look at me, I'm breaking the law. (sirens and flashing lights appear behind them) Cory: Well, we all saw that coming.
