  • Quotes

    • Cory: Pregnant? How can she be pregnant?
      Shawn: Okay, Cory, let me explain this to you. When a man loves a woman…
      Cory: I know about that, okay? We were very careful.
      Shawn: Did you use a…
      Cory: Yes!
      Shawn: Was she on the…
      Cory: Uh-huh!
      Shawn: Well, did you try the…
      Cory: Everything! I'm not even sure we had sex!

    • Eric: Topanga, I can't do this, okay? Women reject me based on who I am, not what I look like.

    • Eric: You never breast fed me!
      Alan: Eric…
      Eric: You didn't either! Breast fed kids are skinny, formula fed kids are fat. You know, at first I blamed it on myself. I thought maybe glands, and then I thought maybe metabolism, but then I thought to myself I'm no racist, so it all goes back to you guys.
      Alan: Listen, Porky, we're in the middle of a serious family discussion here.

    • Mr. Feeny: Unfortunately we live in a society where they tell us we have to look a certain way, so we're all under pressure to live up to unrealistic expectations.
      Jack: Alright, I can't take it anymore. You know, I'm not really perfect. You know why I go to the gym? It's because in high school, they…well they used to have this little nickname for me. It was Jumbo Jack.
      Eric (laughs): Jumbo Jack! You were fat!
      Jack: I was, alright? I just wanted people to like me.
      Eric: Oh, that's alright. I like you, Jumbo Jack.

    • Cory: Topanga, why in the world would you want to go on a diet?
      Rachel: Topanga, you're gorgeous.
      Topanga: Eric, tell them I'm fat.
      Eric: You're not fat, you're hot. I just told you you're fat so you'd give me your pizza.

    • Angela: You're not pregnant.
      Topanga: I'll get pregnant; get out of my way!

    • Eric: You smell like chicken.
      Cory: Don't change the subject!

    • Amy: Go talk to the person you love.
      Cory (thinking for a moment): That would be Shawn!

    • Shawn: She's tired, no appetite
      Cory: Cranky
      Shawn: Nauseous, and couldn't fit into your pants.
      Cory: And stole them.
      Shawn: Cory?
      Cory: Yes Shawn.
      Shawn: How would you feel if these waffles got all slathered in butter and made a little waffle?
      Cory: I know what your saying Shawn... you want seconds, hold on one sec.
      Shawn: Nutnick! Topanga's pregnant.

    • Cory: What did she tell you?!
      Eric: She told me that she's in trouble and it's all your fault. Your waffles and butter did this to her!
      Cory: Why would Topanga confide in you instead of her own husband?
      Eric: Because she knew how you'd react.
      Cory: You mean like this: MY LIFE IS OVER! Like that?
