  • The Matthews' 20th Anniversary!

    This was a really good episode, the lesson for this episode is in which appreciate your parents, Cory & Eric did the opposite as they forgot their anniversary & they were selfish enough to plan a rave on the same day. But they pulled through with that band playing their song! Topanga was hysterical in this episode, her getting all fired up, she is hilarious. Frankie was decent also, not letting the parents in. But the end was heartwarming, Eric was going to spend the rest of his life with his cousin!? Now that's comedy, I love the end, they are very lucky!moreless
  • A great episode!

    Cory and Eric plan a rave at Chubbie’s. Amy overhears Eric talking about a secret party and thinks that Cory and Eric are throwing a surprise 20th anniversary party for them. Once Alan and Amy find out that the party wasn’t for them, they are disappointed, but Cory gets a band to play "My Girl," which is Alan and Amy’s song. All goes well. Reginald, an old, annoying friend of the Matthews visits.

    I thought this was a good episode! I really enjoyed the band; they were good! I can’t believe that Cory and Eric didn’t get in trouble for throwing an illegal rave! Well, despite that, it was a great episode that I really liked! 10 out of 10!moreless
  • eric decides to throw a rave on amy and alan's anniversary

    "eric, how could you plan the rave on mom and dad's anniversary?" "don't look at me like i'm inconsiderate - i didnt even know when mom and dad's anniversary was," were among some of the funny lines in this episode. i loved this episode - it was really funny and had some pretty funny quotes like the one above. reginald fairfield is sooo funny in this episode "reg, reginald fairfield". i loved rave on! it wasnt the best episode of BMW, but it was really good. the plot was good, eric was stupid (business as usual), and cory was clueless (also as usual) lol.moreless

    this was a pretty good episode tho i usally like episodes that have alot of eric in it cuz he has the funniest expresions. cory also seemed very sweet in this one when he was trying to make the party in to a good aniversary party, although you just knew eric would screw it up. i really liked it how cory kept saying that guys name like a britsh person it was really funny and when they were looking at pics and they thought their mom was hot, their reactions were pricless! the very end when frankie cut in was really cute too.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Cory: Eric, how could you plan the rave on the same day as Mom and Dad's anniversary?

    • Shawn: You know, Mr. Feeny, just between you and me; it's stuff like this that really makes you unpopular.
      Mr. Feeny: Sure; and it's lonely at the top, but I save a lot of money on call waiting.

  • NOTES (0)


    • When The Manager says he used to manage a band a long time ago he was referring to The Partridge Family, an early 70s television show about a mother and her five kids that also perform as a band.

    • Topanga: Cory wants his parents wedding song played for them, and this mall rat sent the band a way.

      This is a reference to Ethan Suplee's role in the movie, Mallrats.

    • Feeny: Yes, well; the best laid plans...

      This is an allusion to the poem "To A Mouse," by Robert Burns. The full line is:
      "The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry."
