    • (at the citizenship ceremony)
      Eric: I never understood why anyone would want to be a teacher until right now,
      Mr. Feeny: That's because you're seeing a student succeed and grow right in front of your eyes.
      Eric: Makes you feel so proud to know you made a difference in somebody's life. Doesn't it Mr. Feeny?
      Mr. Feeny: Yes, it does, my boy. Indeed it does.

    • Amy: Cory, for the rest of your life, you're going to be presented with opportunities and temptations and it's how you deal with them that matters.

    • Lauren: Let me keep you warm and dry.
      (Lauren shoves Cory's head in her jacket)
      Cory: So you got any film you need developed?
      Lauren: I love the rain.
      Cory: Yeah I do too, now.

    • Lauren: You want kids?
      Cory: Yeah, but I have to be home by midnight.

    • Feeny: I need you to proctor.
      Eric: Me? Proctor? Proctor Matthews.
      Feeny: You know what proctor is?
      Eric: Yeah, it's a tushy doctor. Oh, Eww. I'm not gonna do that!

    • Shawn: You're my friend Topanga. You're one of the two best people I know.
      Topanga: Who's first?
      Shawn: He is, but you and me are the best two things in his life.
      Topanga: Who's first?
      Shawn: You are.

    • Topanga: He lied to me. He lied to me about staying up all night with Lauren. Strike one.
      Shawn: All they did was talk.
      Topanga: He lied to me about kissing her! Strike two.
      Shawn: All they did was talk and kiss.

    • Shawn: It's been raining for seven days, how do you explain that?
      Cory: Warm air meets a low pressure system?
      Shawn: Wrong. It's raining because God is crying. And he's crying because he created you and Topanga to be the role model of the perfect couple for the entire universe.

    • Cory: I didn't do anything, okay. I meet one other girl, I talk to her, and I get a little thank you note.
      Shawn: Cory, she wrote you the most passionate love letter I've ever read that didn't start with "Dear Shawn".
