  • Quotes

    • Minkus: (After deciding to tell the class what SCUBA stands for) I hate myself.
      Shawn: You're not alone.

    • Minkus: I for one plan to stimulate my intellect, and will therefore choose between Vocabulary Club and Debate Team.
      Topanga: I would enjoy communing with the creatures of the sea. I choose SCUBA.
      Minkus: Slap me in a wetsuit and throw me overboard!

    • Alan: (to Amy about Morgan) C'mon. Let me buy her love while I can still afford it.

    • Shawn: Man, Cory, you are the whitest white boy I have ever seen.

    • Amy: (about Cory) It's after dark, I'm kind of worried.
      Alan: Me too, how's he going to survive in the adult world if he can't come up with a better cover story?

    • Mr. Feeny: Can anyone tell me what the acronym "scuba" is? Mr. Matthews?
      Cory: Dooba?
      Mr. Feeny: Scuba Dooba? Mr. Matthews, I have obviously failed you on so many levels.

    • Cory: Did you brush your teeth this morning?
      Shawn: I'm not sure. What day is it?

    • Mr. Feeny: So, now, can anyone tell me what SCUBA stands for? Come on. Someone take a stab at it. Mr. Hunter, you haven't spoken since the fourth grade. S-C-U-B-A. What does it stand for?
      Shawn: Somethin's...creepy...under...boat...Andy?

    • Topanga: Each of our bodies is the master creation of Mother Nature.
      Shawn: Well, except for Minkus. He was created by Mother Goose.

    • Cory: Give them back to me on the most important day of my life.
      Alan: When will that be?
      Cory: Whatever day you give them back.

  • Allusions

    • Mr. Feeny: This has got to be the most half-baked idea you've ever had!
