  • Quotes

    • Corey: Oh it's not Monday?
      Mr. Feeny: All week long you two ache to leave this classroom and here you both are in the middle of the night, sneaking into it.

    • (Shawn is hiding under the desk)
      Mr. Feeny: Well, I guess the room is empty. What a perfect time to set fire to my desk.

    • Amy: Cory, Shawn has always reminded your dad of someone he knew when he was a kid.
      Cory (to Alan): You had a best friend like Shawn?
      Alan: No; I was like Shawn. I had a best friend like you.
      Cory: You did?
      Alan: Mm hmm; And when I was about 12 years old I got into trouble once and I considered my options. I could hop a train to California. I could start my life at 13, get a job at 14, be married at 15, have kids at 16. I thought it was a great idea.
      Cory: Sounds like a dumb idea to me.
      Alan: Oh you think so, huh?
      Cory: Yeah. Just because you make one little mistake you don't want to throw your whole life away.
      Alan: You see, guys like you and my best friend Richy, that's the way you think. Guys like me and Shawn, we don't think like that.
      Cory: Did you ever go to California?
      Alan: No.
      Cory: Well, what happened?
      Alan: I dunno; somehow I ended up here, in a room, with you.

    • Shawn: I was standing outside the Market Giant.
      Cory: You blew up the Market Giant?! That's my dad's store, I have mixed feelings.

    • Mr. Feeny : Mr. Matthews, unhand that Minkus!

    • Cory: I'm Accomplice-Boy!

    • Shawn: The cops are after me, maybe even the FBI. You're not involved...unless you want to be.
      Cory: I'm in!

    • Eric: I know what you're hiding
      Cory: You do?
      Eric: Yup, I tried the same thing when I was your age. The noises, the food sneaking, the look on your face at dinner...YOU'RE HIDING A PUPPY!
