  • KISSING IN SCHOOL?!

    10
    This was a great episode. Cory starts hanging out with "nerdy" kids, including the very strange Topanga. In the end of the episode, after everything returns to normal, Cory and Topanga share their first kiss {of course, with each other}.



    This is the first instance where the audience thinks Cory and Topanga will someday be together {which of course happens in the final season}. This is one of my personal favorite episodes. It had a very good plot and some good lines. And the kiss at the end was really nice, sometimes they just happen and that is what the episode is about. Not this timemoreless
  • The beginning of Cory and Topenga.

    Wow, this episode is nothing short of fantastic. Shawn's sister (who we never see again) is mentioned and even heard on the phone after Cory tries to chemically straighten his hair. This is also the first time we see the division between Shawn as the cool one, and Cory as the sweet nice-guy-who-finishes-last. And finally, and certainly most importantly Cory and Topenga share their first kiss. Topenga initiates it, which is perfect and totally indicative of how their relationship will go, with Topenga nearly always taking the lead. This episode makes me cry every single time i watch it. Aces and 10 stars.moreless

    This was yet another wonderful installment to the Boy Meets World series. It was also a classic as we see Topanga Lawrence for the first time. Cory goes through a stage in which he want's to be himself, he want's to make a name for himself. Instead, he gets named "Punky Brewster" by his little sister, Morgan. He accidently messes his hair. To help him make the transition back to normality, he is comforted by his weird classmates such as Minkus & Topanga. In the end, Cory learns that what matters is all inside, and that he'll always have a seat at the weird table.moreless
  • Cory's first kiss!

    Cory wants to be cooler so he tries straightening his hair. Unfortunately, it turns out to be weird. He is assigned a project partner with Topanga, the weirdest girl in school. He learns that you don't have to care what other people think. He also gets his first kiss with Topanga.



    I loved this episode! It introduced Topanga and they kissed! Also, there's a great lesson. Dont' care what others think of you. Just be yourself. I thought this episode was also very funny! This was just an all-around good episode! I give it a 10 out of 10! Fantastic!moreless
