    • Mr. Feeny: I used to ask my mother why I could only have butter on my toast two mornings a week, she said because of the war in Europe. And I wondered why there was never enough candy, she told me because of the war in Europe. Oh and I longed for a pair of sneakers, but I couldn't have any.
      Cory: Those European guys stole them, huh?
      Mr. Feeny: The rubber had to be diverted to the war effort. There was a version of the sneaker available; but it was made out of recycled tires and left black marks on the gym floor.
      Cory: Hey, you took gym?!
      Mr. Feeny: They made me.

    • Cory: Earlier tonight, Dad told me Mr. Feeny was right; and then later on Mr. Feeny told me Dad was right. At least that's what I think he was saying. Sometimes I can't hold my breath long enough to get down to where Mr. Feeny likes to swim.
      Amy: Well Cor, sometimes two adults can think two different ways about something and both can be right.
      Cory: Then how come I only think one way about things and I'm always wrong.

    • Alan: Feeny's a butt!

    • Cory: It's hard to imagine you as a kid. Did your parents call you Mr. Feeny?

    • According to executive producer, Michael Jacobs, in the season 2 DVD commentary, this storyline actually happened to him. His father woke him up late one night to listen to a Muhammad Ali fight on the radio, but Michael had a test the next day, and when he failed, his father "got into it with the teacher."
