  • Favorite Pilot for one of my Favoirte TV Shows

    Boy Meets World, this is where it all started. Cory was a funny little kid, Shawn the bad influence, Mr. Feeny the motivational great teacher.



    If I had a teacher like him, I'd probably be more successful in my life because his words would stick for a long time.



    Incredible show, I don't care if I've seen re-runs of this show for the upteenth time, it'll still be awesome.moreless

    Boy Meets World is perhaps one of the most clever written series' I have seen. And this was how it started. Cory learns a little lesson about love and stuff from his mentor Mr. FEENY!



    This show was incredible and so was this pilot. Jokes were funny, Cory was really funny in the first two seasons {not that he wasn't in the last few}. The plot could have done better at introducing characters, but that is my only main concern, and it wasn't too big a concern. This is a perfect introduction to a really great teen and family show.moreless

    I love this show! I truly do!! Its full of comedy and drama! I'm planning on getting all the seasons because its like you're being attached into their lives yourself! With eric matthews(ben savage) as the boy who grows up in phillidephia with his best friends (rider strong) shawn hunter and his girlfriend(or so she is a little later onto the show and they get married too toawards the ending of the seasons! Which is soo romantic but they've known each other since they were in daipers!)(danielle fishel)topanga lawrence-matthews .. Eric matthews(will friedle)his ever so cute funny brother..his mom, amy and dad, alan and little sister .. And his "forever long time" teacher/ principal george feeny,(william daniels) who you will come to love in this show, and a lot more important people get introduced into the show as it goes on it has always been one of my most favorite shows. They talked about everything from a child's perspective to a teenager's perspective to an adult's perspective. The relationships and problems that all these friends and family have faced have come quite a way to show you how it relates to everyday situations. They all treat each other with love and care showing us that they all are one big happy family from shawn's parents splitting up to his dad dying. They show the progression to a wonderful relationship between cory and topanga from them being together from the age of 8 months olod, to the two of them getting married. Some episodes can make you laugh and some can make you cry. It is like a friends episode for children. It is a wonderful story of friendships, relationships, and lifemoreless

  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Mr. Feeny: It's supposed to stink, Mr. Matthews. It's detention. You're being detained from whatever it is you'd rather be doing.
      Cory: Well I think it's a cruel and unusual life-sucking torture.

    • Mr. Feeny: Mr. Matthews, I spend 35 to 40 hours a week dealing with the perceived problems of whiny little people like yourself. Now this is my lunch period; my respite from the fray. I spend four hours with you every morning and three hours with you every afternoon, now for god's sake get out of my face!

    • Mr. Feeny: There is no greater aspiration than to have love in our lives, Mr. Matthews. Romeo knew it and died for it. Others know it...and prepare salads. And those who don't know it, will sit in detention for the rest of their lives.

    • Cory: Good morning, Mr. Feeny.
      Mr. Feeny: Good morning, Mr. Matthews. (Cory buys a candy bar) A candy bar? Doesn't your mother feed you a proper breakfast?
      Cory: Oh yeah, she does, but now I got to get the shredded wheat out of my mouth.

    • Mr. Feeny: Confused, Mr. Matthews?
      Cory: Yes I am, sir.
      Mr. Feeny: As it should be.

    • Cory: You and I had dinner together last night.
      Mr. Feeny: Really; I wasn't aware.
      Cory: I had chocolate pie and you had salad for two all by yourself.
      Mr. Feeny: How did you know that?
      Cory: Cause I slept in my tree house last night. You know why? Cause this love stuff has turned my whole family against me. And you're teaching us how it's worth killing yourself for when I know you don't really believe that; do you?
      Mr. Feeny: Well; You shrewd little observer of the human condition. How blissful it must be for you to have lived so little, and yet already reached your conclusions about the greatest wonder of the universe.
      Cory (now scared): You know what Mr. Feeny; keep the radio.
      Mr. Feeny: Shakespeare wrote plays and sonnets. The Greeks wrote tragedies and comedies. Robert Burns, Emily Dickinson, The Brownings examined the depths of human emotions. And do you know what each one of these poets, playwrights and philosophers have in common, Mr. Matthews?
      Cory: They all took your class?
      Mr. Feeny: Every one of them was older than eleven.

    • Eric: News flash... I'm not cool!

    • Feeny: The tragedy here, Mr. Matthews, is not about a dumb girl or the boy who kills himself because of her. It is about the all consuming power of love and the inevitability of its influence on each of our lives.
      Cory: Are you aware that I'm only 11 years old?

    • Alan: Why did you get detention?
      Amy: Apparently he'd rather listen to the baseball game on the radio than try to understand the emotional content of Romeo and Juliet.
      Cory: Mom, I'm a kid. I don't understand the emotional content of Full House.
      Morgan: I do!
