  • Not My Favorite

    Cory wants to be in the Geography bee so he can be bat-boy at the World Series. So he studies hard and he gets out very, very quickly, as he clearly does not know any answers to the questions.

    Now, maybe it is because I do not care much about geography, but I just didn't like the episode much at all. I do enjoy some of the jokes, and the plot was OK I guess, but I just didn't thin kit was one of their better ones or anything. I guess this is one of my bottom 20 or somethingmoreless
  • Great episode!

    Cory enters a geography bee. He wants to win the prize of being the bat boy at the major league. Minkus tries to be cool because Cory and Shawn told him to. Eric freaks out because his parents are going to the same concert that he and Heather are going to. Cory loses the bee but gains pride and an A!

    I thought this was a great episode! Cory really learns something about Geography and dedication. He had fun while learning and reaped an award from that. He got an A! I thought that Eric was being a little dumb about the whole concert thing. I guess it would've been weird to have your parents at a rock concert, but he made too big of a deal out of it. Minkus was hilarious and this was a great episode! A 10 out of 10!moreless

    • Ellis: Chill.
      Minkus: I don't even understand what that means.
      Shawn: It means that one out of every four people is a nerd; so when you look around this room and you don't see one, you're it.

    • Shawn: Oh, right; like Feeny's gonna take you to the geography tournament. You didn't even know they tore down the Berlitz wall.

    • Cory: Math--two plus two is always four. Science--the earth always goes around the sun. History--Lincoln always gets shot in the head.
      Mr. Feeny: Lincoln got off easy.

    • Eric: You're my parents! You're not supposed to have any fun!

    • Cory: In the old days, things used to be so simple. You had Russia, you had Moscow--one country, one capital. Now you've got your Latvia, your Estonia, your Ukraine, and each one's got its own capital. What were these people thinking?!

    • Mr. Feeny: Mr. Minkus, I see you've abandoned your MTV look.
      Minkus: Well, nothing against Cindy Crawford; but I'm more of a Connie Chung kind of guy.
      Mr. Feeny: Well, sometimes a man doesn't know himself until he's walked a mile in another man's humongous pants.
