  • None of the cast got the answer right.

    In 1 min al can do 1/6 of the car and frank can do 1/8 of the car so the both can do 7/24 of a car per minute. After some caculations the answer is around 3.42 minutes. The answer caculated is rounded to the hundreds place but is the closest answer to the problem.
  • affair?

    cory and shawn think amy might be having an affair when they are told that her so called bowling league ended a while ago. so they go and see her at a restaurant, and they see a man. in the end of the episode it is revealed that amy and alan had been meeting at the same restaurant, but cory and eric only noticed amy, not alan. they wanted privacy and to be secretive, that was why they didn't tell where they had been.

    a good, funny episode that questions commitments. My overall grade for this episode is an A+moreless
  • Once again, BMW at its best!

    Amy has been going bowling every Wednesday. Cory, Shawn, and Eric find provactive clothing in Amy's bowling bag. Cory and Eric follow her to a fancy resturant and find her with another man. Mr. Feeny gives a math problem that Minkus cannot solve, which drives him insane. It turns out that the strange mystery man with mom is dad.

    This was an awesome episode! I loved it! Minkus was hilarious when he was crazy! Minkus was so cute back then! I thought Topanga was also very funny in this episode! Her facial expressions and such were believable! This was an all-around great episode! A 10 pit pf 10!moreless
  • Cute, funny, and a great example of a wonderful series.

    The episode, which focuses on Alan and Amy's time away from the kids, says a lot about learning to think outside the box, something kids around Cory's age learn to do for the first time. As a way of demonstrating this, Minkus gets a math problem wrong for the first time ever and goes nuts. It is arguably the best performance by Lee Norris on the show.

    The humor in the episode is family-friendly but not corny, which is an unfotunate pattern of family-friendly shows. Amy talks to her sons like they are real people and not just little kids, because they are old enough to understand what she is saying.

    The math problem in school is very funny and the segments are very well written. Aside from the emotional content of the parent/child storyline, the episode is worth watching just to see how the kids deal with a math problem with no real answer.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In response to Mr. Feeny's math problem, if one person washes a car in 6 min and another person takes 8 min to wash the same car, it would take approximately 3 min and 26 seconds to wash the car together. The point was not that the problem doesn't have an answer, but that in order to solve it, the kids must think differently than they have before.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Cory (about the rose Alan is holding): Hey dad, I'm pretty sure Mr. Feeny numbers those things.
      Alan: Well, this was hanging on our side of the fence so its number is up.

    • Eric: Okay, here's a hypothetical question. Let's say you're a girl, and you see me stumble into your best friend's lap and inadvertently French kiss her. Now you won't go out with me. (shakes Shawn) Why won't you go out with me?!
      Shawn: I'm a little country, you're a little rock-n-roll?

    • Mr. Feeny: Mr. Minkus, you're wrong.
      Minkus: Wrong? As in, not right?
      Mr. Feeny: You know the law of averages better than I do, it was bound to catch up with you.
      (Minkus gets up and quickly walks out of the classroom)
      Mr. Feeny: Where are you going?
      Minkus: Nurse.

      (lifts up bag and realizes how light it is)
      Cory: Eric, something's wrong, this doesn't weigh anything.
      Eric: Well maybe Mom forgot her ball.
      (Eric & Cory lift shoes out of the bag)
      Shawn: ...And if those are bowling shoes there should be a number on the back, just above the spike heel.
      (Eric pulls out a black dress)
      Cory: Eric, what does this mean?
      Eric: It means Mom's gonna' be flashin' some leg when she picks up that seven-ten split.

    • Mr. Feeny: Interesting, isn't it Mr. Matthews? Mr. Minkus didn't get the correct answer, but Ms. Lawrence did. You would do well to consider that in your search for your answer.

    • Amy: I was dancing with your father.
      Eric: Dad's not our father?!

    • Mr. Feeny: In the course of your education you have always been taught to look for the right answer. But you must also know that in life, sometimes the right answer is that there isn't one.
