  • You've got a face for radio!

    There is a new radio station for John Adams High. Mr. Feeny only plays boring music so Cory and Shawn want to spice it up a bit. They volunteer to be the radio hosts. At first, they start out rough, but when a caller calls to see if one of their guests is available to date, the calls start coming in. Cory and Shawn decide to do more of a dating talk show than do school news. They get in trouble and just when Mr. Turner gets Mr. Feeny's approval for a second chance for Cory and Shawn, they blow it by sneaking back and doing another inappropiate show. Eric thinks that he will be rich when he gets something in the mail.

    This was a good episode! It taught that you shouldn't just do whatever because you might just get a second chance. This episode gets a 9.0 from me!moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Ludwig: I'm not accustomed to being so ill-used!
      Feeny: Yes, well, you're young yet.

    • Amy: Why are we getting Aircraft Maintenance magazine?
      Eric: That's mine! Yep, yep, yep; Eric Matthews. Excellent, I've been waiting for it and finally it's here. (throws the magazine in the trash) What else we got?
      (looking at the next magazine) Botswana Today!

    • Cory: It's you and me Shawn, just us. If we're gonna get back on the radio we're gonna have to do it by ourselves.
      Shawn: I agree...but we're gonna need a lot of help.

    • Cory: Come on, Mr. Feeny. Don't you believe in what you teach us?
      Mr. Feeny: Mr. Matthews, the rights of the constitution were intended for those with a sense of responsibility.
      Shawn: Well, if it doesn't apply to us then why do we have to learn it?

    • Mr. Feeny: What you two said over the air-waves was inappropriate.
      Shawn: Well according to this here constitution, uh uh!

    • Eric: My dreams are just a little bit different than that, Dad; cause here in America Robin Leach can still show up at your door and hand a regular guy like me a bunch of money he didn't earn. That's a dream worth dreaming.

    • Cory: Weren't we just pulled off the air because of what we said?
      Shawn: Yes we were. He says one thing and then he does another. He's being a hypochondriac.
