Frankie: It is when my father fights Jake "The Snake" Roberts. The winner is in line for a shot at the belt, against Shawn Michaels, at Madison Square Garden.
This episode aired two days before the WWF pay-per-view event, Survivor Series, held at Madison Square Garden. Shawn Michaels lost the title match to Sycho Sid.
Cory (to Shawn): Sit, darling. Have a nap.
Shawn: Fred never spent more than 75 seconds at either location.
Cory: Yeah, but you see Shawn, that was a cartoon. Time was compressed. We're real; we're in real time.
Shawn: Trust me, it's the same thing.
Shawn (asleep in the back of class): I don't wanna go to school, Daddy; Cory's reading poetry.
Cory: Now I assume you have a backup plan.
Shawn: "Jonny Quest", but then we'd need Hadji and a hovercraft.
