Episode Summary

While delivering revised reports to Mr. Turner's house, Cory and Shawn find his lesson plan and feel guilty when they study for a pop quiz.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Great!

    Cory and Shawn find out that there will be a pop quiz so they study for it. Cory feels guilty about it and tells Mr. Turner. It turns out that Mr. Turner does that on purpose to teach them a lesson. Harley left and Frankie and Joey don't know what to do. They follow Eric around until they meet Griff. They become Griff's lackeys.

    This was a great episode! I enjoyed the Frankie/Joey storyline better. Griff is a good replacement for Harley, but I will always like Harley Keiner that best! I thought that Mr. Turner did a pretty good scam! This episode gets a 10!moreless
  • cory and shawn think they are cheating for a pop quiz

    when cory and shawn want to do better in turners class, and they are at his apartment and sneak a look at his lesson plan they feel like they are cheating when they know to study for a pop quiz. but later on they find out that turner has his lesson plan posted up in front of the classroom all the time
  • Can Shawn and Cory actually get an A?

    Yes. Yes they can. But only if they look at Mr. Turner's lesson plan and learn when the pop quiz so that they can study what is on the test.

    But let me back up. They are at Mr. Turner's appartment because they "forgot" to do their homework. If they slack off so much, how ever will they manage to get into college after there senior year?

    Anyhow, after a fun lesson from Mr. Turner (who has great hair) they learn that homework is good and that they are smart people. I laughed when I saw Eric Balfour. I am used to his Conviction days and so it is nice to see him especially arguing with Mr. Rook/Adam Scott/Griff.moreless

      Shawn: Jerry Rice is open!
      Cory: He throws! (Mr. Feeny catches it) Intercepted.
      Shawn: By Feeny!
      Mr. Feeny: The wily veteran.
      Cory: I stink.
      Mr. Feeny: I agree, have you seen your latest test score? And if Mr. Matthews stinks, you Mr. Hunter are as odoriferous as dead man in July.

    • Eric: Yo, Jasmine. Did you know that our bodies are 98 percent water? Well, if you can squeeze that other two percent into a bikini, I've got two tickets to our natural habitat. (waves water park tickets)

    • Cory: Wait, you mean you want us to know what to study?
      Shawn: Well, I'm lost!
      Mr. Turner: It's the whole idea! I stand in front of the class and talk, you learn. It's called education.
      Shawn: So that's why this building exists! Some of us are students, and… some of us are teachers, and if the students listen to the teachers, then…Oh, I almost got it!
      Cory: Then they get good grades.
      Shawn: Yeah, but why?!
      Mr. Turner: Why do you think, Shawn?
      Shawn: Because… if you get good grades… it means you've actually learned something. Am I close?

    • Shawn: A twelve? How do you get a twelve?
      Mr. Feeny: I don't know. You ever open a book?
      Shawn: What?
      Mr. Feeny: A book! Do you ever open a book?
      Shawn: What?!
      Cory: Don't ask me, I got a sixteen.
      Mr. Feeny: Gentlemen, do you ever go home and open a book?
      Shawn: What?
      Feeny: I want you to go home this afternoon and open a book! I don't care what you had otherwise planned, I order you, nay, I command you. Go home and open a book!

    • Cory: Look, Mr. Turner, just give us till Wednesday. I swear we'll have them in. Tuesday?
      Mr. Turner: I'm grading them Sunday.
      Shawn: So Tuesday?
      Cory: Please, Mr. Turner, help me bring up my grades. I just got a sixteen.
      Shawn: And I got a twelve. Between us that makes twenty-four.
      Mr. Turner: Twenty-eight.
      Shawn: Thanks!
      Mr. Turner: Okay, I'll throw you one. Have your papers in my hand, at my place, Sunday, five 'o'clock, not a minute later.
      Shawn: All right, Mr. Turner, I should tell you… my dog ate it.
      Cory (leans towards Shawn, whispering): Not yet!

    • (to Mr. Turner regarding Cory and Shawn)
      Mr. Feeny: I'd give up on them, but I don't think they'd notice.

    • Cory (playing football in the hall): He throws a perfect 60 yard pass and hits [Frankie] a blue 1995 Buick Regal!

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode was supposed to be the very last in the series. However, the show did get picked up again, and season two had three more episodes, beginning seven weeks after this one aired. On the night that "The Thrilla in Phila" was shown, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel hosted t.g.i.f. from the "Chubbie's" set and assured the viewers that it wasn't over yet.


    • Cory refers to himself as "Steve Young" and Shawn as "Jerry Rice" when throwing the football. Steve Young was a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and Jerry Rice was a Hall of Fame wide reciever who spent most of his career with the 49ers.
