  • Quotes

    • Libby: Hi Cory, love that shirt.
      Cory: Hey thanks! Underneath it I'm half naked.

    • Missy: And don't worry; Your girlfriend Topogigia won't mind.
      Cory: Actually, it's Topanga.
      Missy (smiling): Whatever.

    • Mr. Feeny: Alright, Mr. Matthews, what was I saying?
      Cory: I was too busy absorbing to listen.
      Mr. Feeny: Very good. Mr. Hunter?
      Shawn: Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal.
      Mr. Feeny: Dear Lord, he's right.
      Shawn: It's been my answer for two years, Mr. Feeny. Sooner or later it had to pay off.

    • Cory: Well, I accidentially kissed Missy Robinson.
      Topanga: How do you accidentially kiss someone?
      Cory: Well, um...
      Topanga: I mean did she trip on a rug and your lips broke her fall?

  • Allusions

    • The fictional ball player's last name is Bagwell - which is the last name of Jeff Bagwell who played for the Houston Astros from 1991 to 2005. Oddly enough his teammate Craig Biggio did set the modern record for most hits by a pitch.

    • Bagwell: Today I consider myself the stupidest man on the face of the earth

      This is an allusion to the famous speech given by Lou Gehrig, at the end of his baseball career.

    • Cory: Missy Robinson, you're trying to seduce me.

      This references Dustin Hoffman's line in the 1967 film, The Graduate, also starring William Daniels.

    • Title: The Last Temptation of Cory

      A reference to the 1988 Martin Scorsese film, The Last Temptation of Christ.
