  • Cory decides to back out on Topanga to go to another high school\'s dance.

    Cory and Topanga have been going out for five months, and they feel their relationship is at a standstill. They\'ve spent their last dates watching chick flicks, making jam, and going to the mall. Cory decides that it would benefit him to go to another high school\'s dance instead of his date with Topanga on Friday night. It turns out that Topanga wanted to go out with her girlfriends instead too. Cory and Shawn arrive at Hamilton High\'s \"Jungle Tonight\" dance and people mistake Cory for Shawn. Cory is getting all the girls and Shawn is watching as a spectator. Cory seems to enjoy this new on-the-edge lifestyle and wishes he could always live like that. Then, Shawn catches word that a hot French girl is at the party so he sends Cory off on a mission to find her and speak to her. When Cory finds the French girl, she turns around. To Cory\'s surprise, the French girl is Topanga Lawrence. They are both very shocked to see one another. Cory and Topanga go outside to talk about their relationship. They both agree that their relationship has no mystery any more and they both care about each other but make the decision to break up. After they walk away only saying, \"Bye\" they both regret the break-up. First, Topanga runs back, but Cory isn\'t there. Then, Cory comes back, but Topanga isn\'t there. This demonstrates the love Cory and Topanga share for each other.
    Personally, I think that the sequence in the classroom with the \"All I Know\" song (by Art Garfunkel) in the background is very touching. It shows all the times Topanga and Cory have leaned on each other, and it serves a very appropriate ending to this milestone episode.
