  • The title pretty much sums it up.

    This is a definite classic, unfortunately I couldn't find the lesson learned her, even though the episode is called "Life Lessons". The beginning this is mostly just laughs, Cory & Shawn not studying, watching TV for 2 weeks, while Topanga is freaking out! Some kids at school decide to go against Feeny & his tests, Shawn goes along with him, but things get soon out of hand when they go to the level to vandalize his house & school, that was so sad when Feeny was looking around the destroyed house, also it was heart warming to see that he wasn't going to retire & Cory, Shawn & Topanga helped him clean up in the end, a great life learning episode.moreless
  • Great episode!

    The finals are coming! The students think that Mr. Feeny should spread the finals out instead of taking them all together. He refuses to change it so some boys vandalize his house and the school. Cory, Shawn, and Topanga realize that this is all wrong and they help Mr. Feeny. Mr. Feeny decides to retire and then changes his mind. Eric goes out with a woman who is nearly 10 years older than him.

    I liked this episode because it really taught about how teachers felt. They feel as if they failed if a student doesn't learn. Mr. Feeny said that there will always be successful students and unsuccessful students. I thought it was really touching when Cory, Shawn and Topanga helped Mr. Feeny clean up at the school. This was a great episode that deserves a 10!moreless
  • A really great episode

    I thought this episode was a preview of the new Boy meets world. I like this episode a lot, it is probably on of the better episodes in season 3. At first cory, shawn, and topanga are flipping out about the finals schedule. They all vow to study, but of course shawn and cory just slack off. the students organize and try to plead with mr feeny, but he stands tough. Some unruly students start to take it to the next level, and trash Feeny's house. i don't know about the rest of you, but i felt really bad for Mr. feeny at this part, his expression looked very genuine, and i could see a bunch of jerks really doing that. Then in the end Shawn stands up to the unruly crowd using his new found power, knowledge. this is also a early indication of shawn's college potential.moreless
  • Mr. Feeny's finals schedule gets some students rattled.

    Some thugs in Cory, Shawn, and Topanga's class want to "get rid of" Feeny because of his really tough final exam schedule. There are 3 tests in one day, all in a row. The thugs give Cory a chance to talk to Mr. Feeny and try to get the schedule changed Cory's way, but when Feeny refuses to change the schedule, the thugs step forward and say that it's time to do things their way. Denny (head thug) and his friends vandalize Mr. Feeny's house one night. Mr. Feeny and Cory talk at school, and Mr. Feeny tells Cory he is retiring at the end of the year, because he no longer has the respect of his students. Seen any episodes after this one? Feeny obviously didn't retire. The thugs try to vandalize the school one night, but are stopped by Shawn, Cory, and Topanga along with Feeny.moreless
