  • Trivia

    • In the episode "I Am Not a Crook" Cory runs for 8th grade class president because he wants to find his place in high school.  3 episodes later in "On The Air" Shawn tells Mr. Turner in the radio station that "We're just trying to find our place, you know?  We're only 7th graders"....

    • Shawn and Cory interview Sarah on the radio. When we saw her "Pairing Off" she was credited as Samantha; and when she returns in "The Happiest Show on Earth", her name is Kristin.

    • In this episode, on top of a small stair case is the radio broadcast room. In all other episodes that room is just a regular closet.

  • Quotes

    • 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.

    • Shawn: We gotta get back on the air, man. How are we gonna get back on the air!
      Cory: Okay I'm thinking, I'm thinking. I got it!
      Shawn: What?
      Cory: We gotta get back on the air!
      Shawn: You're a genius!
      Cory: I know.
      Shawn: That's why we make such a good team.

    • Cory: I have a radio voice!
      Shawn: And I have a radio face!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Feeny: Yes, and my Papa was a rolling stone.

      A reference to a motown song made popular by The Temptations.

    • Shawn: Oh Cory, I dreamed we were doing the most painfully boring radio show in the world. And you were there! and you...oh!

      This is a reference to the scene in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy wakes up from her dream.

    • Eric: There's a little voice in my head. You know what it's saying?
      Amy: "Life is like a box of chocolates"?

      This is a famous line from the movie Forrest Gump. Amy of course implying Eric is a bit dim-witted.
