The song heard at the end of this episode is "All I Know" by Art Garfunkel.
Eric gets upset at Cory for spending Friday night watching "chick-flicks" with Topanga, instead of watching the Super Bowl. Super Bowl? Friday?
Shawn: Word is, there's a very hot French girl who comes from some place in Europe.
Cory: Possibly France?
(Eric is playing poker with the teachers)
Mr. Feeny: Well, now. I have three aces. Beat that, Mr. Matthews.
Eric: Darn; I only have two jacks and a ten...and another jack! And another ten! I win again!
Eric: I got everything I need to be a studying fool.
Amy: Where are your books? Eric, did you leave them in your locker?
Eric: Yeah, either there or on the bus.
Amy: Oh, Eric. You don't take the bus.
Eric: Well then they're safely in my locker!
Eric: If you'll excuse me, I have "sera-mix".
Mr. Turner: Wait, you mean "ceramics"?
Eric: Yeah, the ashtray class.
Feeny: Mr. Matthews, very interesting essay on Joan of Arc.
Eric: Finally, a little appreciation. Now did that hurt?
Feeny: I doubt if 'Arc' meant that Joan was from Arkansas.
Eric: It's a theory.
Feeny: It's an F.
Shawn: Cory, you're trying to hard. Just relax and be myself.
This episode marks the first break-up of Cory and Topanga.
At the beginning of the episode, Mr. Turner lends Eric his copy of Of Mice and Men. It appears to be an average-sized book. Of Mice and Men (in one edition) is only 107 pages long. Unless Turner's is a large-print copy, which isn't likely, how could it be Of Mice and Men?
In this episode, Cory pretends to be Shawn by impersonating Fonzie. In the Season 2 DVD Commentary, executive producer Michael Jacobs states that Shawn's character was influenced by Fonzie, leading to many similarities between the two characters.
(A bowl of pretzels falls off the table)
Eric: Sure, there's only 238 pretzel sticks.
Johnathan: What is this, like Rain Man or something?
Rain Man was a 1988 movie starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman where the title character is an autistic savant. In the movie, he counts 246 fallen toothpicks within seconds.
Cory: (pops the collar on his leather jacket) Eyyy!
Shawn: What was that?!
Shawn: That wasn't me, that was Fonzie!
Fonzie, or Arthur Fonzarelli, is a character from the 1974 sitcom Happy Days whose catchphrase was "Eyyy."
