  • Cory must choose between his loyalty to his friend and his desire to do the right thing when Shawn asks him to stow him away secretly after Shawn blows up the mailbox outside Alan's story with a cherry bomb.

    This episode is the first real introduction to "Shawn as the bad boy" theme of the show. Shawn is presented as a character who could "go either way" as it were--he has the chance of falling into dangerous behavior and essentially becoming a criminal, or he can make the right choices, listen to the positive influences of Cory, the Matthews, and Mr. Feeny and rise above his broken home and questionable upbringing to be a good man.

    In this episode, we see Cory as torn between whether or not to help Shawn escape or to "turn him in" to his parents and get him rehabilitated. In short, this episode is the beginning of a long series that could have been titled "Cory Helps Shawn Not Screw Up His Life."
