  • Trivia

    • Topanga says that she has never been on a plane before and is afraid to fly. However, she took a plane to Disney World in the season 3 episode, The Happiest Show on Earth.

    • When Topanga is flying the plane, she is sans headphones. A pilot and co-pilot usually do not take their headphones off because of important information coming from Air Traffic Control and Ground Control, that the pilot needs to pay attention to.
