In this episode, Topanga's father makes guitars. In The Father/Son Game, he owns a book store.
In this episode, we find out that Shawn was raised Presbyterian.
Shawn's dad was not in the classroom when the other parents were talking about their careers, so he couldn't have known what their professions were.
Topanga: Daddy, forget about all that. Tell them who called last night.
Jedediah: Oh, they don't wanna hear about that, Tippy.
Cory/Shawn: Tippy? (Topanga turns to them, literally snarling)
Cory: Tippy's nice.
Shawn: It's my new favorite name.
Alan (giving speech to Cory's class): I like to think we do more than sell lettuce and pickles and potato chips and bug spray. Um, we sell...dreams.
Boy: What aisle?
Jedediah (speaking at Career Day): I'm a luthier.
Shawn: And I'm a Presbyterian but to each his own, I say.
Jedediah: A luthier makes musical instruments.
Shawn: No offense, sir; but that's gotta be the nuttiest religion I ever heard.
Jason: Half the test is verbal; half is math.
Eric: Half?! Like what; 30, 40 percent?
Topanga (on Bruce Springsteen calling her father): I took the call. He said, "Hey, little girl, is your daddy home?"
This is the first line of the Bruce Springsteen song, "I'm On Fire."
Chet: ...but I made the mistake of yappin' to a southern fella about it on an elevator. Wait, what'd you say your last name was?
Mr. Turner: Turner; no relation.
Chet and Mr. Turner are making reference to Ted Turner, the inventor of CNN.
Cory: Remember that World Series game, where the first baseman let that easy ground ball go under his legs, and his team lost, and he was humiliated in front of the entire world?
In game six of the 1986 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets, Red Sox first baseman, Bill Buckner, let a ground ball go through his legs, which allowed the winning run to score. The Mets went on to win the next game and the championship.
