When Eric walks in to their garage and finds Cory cleaning it out with Shawn and Topanga, he is furious that Cory didn't ask him to help. When Eric asks why he chose his friends over him, Cory tells him that he didn't think he would want to waste a Saturday cleaning. Eric storms out, but Cory insists that it's no big deal. The next day Cory apologizes to Eric for not asking him to help. Eric doesn't accept the apology, because he knows that his parents planned on them cleaning the garage together, which contained a lot of memories from their childhood. Eric's response is to have a garage sale and get rid of everything. Cory doesn't understand why he would want to sell everything, but agrees to do it.
At the garage sale, Cory reminds Eric about a few good times they've had together, in hopes that he'll change his mind about the garage sale, but it doesn't work. When Cory tries to talk to Eric a woman inquiring a price keeps interrupting him, which leads Cory to insulting her. The woman's husband steps in and hits Cory, and then an all-out brawl ensues. Cory and Eric end up at the emergency room with minor injuries, where they commence their argument again. Eric tells Cory that he's upset that they don't do anything together anymore, and that he only thinks of him as a brother, not a friend.
Cory goes home and begins straightening out the garage alone. A few minutes later Eric shows up and begins to help Cory finish the job.
