    Wow...that's one word to describe this episode. After the first time I saw this, "Wow" is exactly what I felt. This episode was written beautifully by the writers and the acting was just amazing!



    Shawn was already in a depressing state because off all of the complications with Angela, but when his dad pops up for an unexpected visit, I think that's when Shawn starts to snap.



    Matt Lawrence gave one of his best performances in this episode, and he proved to be a stronger actor than what I thought. His role of being the boy who didn't and barely knows his father was great!



    This episode was one of Rider Strong's best performances too, and Rider's given some memorable performances in Boy Meets World's seven years. I could completely feel his emotion when he gave his speech to Jack about how lucky he is to not feel his pain. Rider's acting is just superb in this episode! I have no idea how he isn't a more recognized actor!



    I also loved Alan and Chet's talk in the hospital. I still can't believe that if Chet would have survived, he would have taken off again! How could he do that to his sons? When Chet and Shawn have their final talk, I was almost in tears. It makes me wonder if Chet really would have stayed around for Jack and Shawn after this talk with a very despondent Shawn. To me, this was Blake Clark's best scene in the show as a minor character. This scene was also another one of Rider Strong's more powerful scenes. Both actors put a ton of emotion in this scene, and some people say that it was over-done, but I say it was just right.



    All in all, one of the best Boy Meets World episodes and definitely on my top ten episode list!moreless

    I love this episode. Easily one of the saddest episodes of this show, if not the saddest. It is so emotional when at the end the doctor reveals Chet did die. The episode as a whole had little laughs from what I remember, but that is OK when the episode itself is this good. I liked Chet and I wish he could have stayed, but apparently the writers had a much different plan. Easily one of the most emotional episodes of a show, especially a sitcom like this. My overall grade for this episode is a very easy A+. Perfectmoreless
  • one of the saddest episodes on boy meets world

    Shawn and jacks father returns and promises to stay in their lives and hang around, but when he gets offered a job in Vegas, Shawn gets angry at him knowing that he will leave them again. When he gets a heart attack and put in the hospital, everyone is upset and Shawn tells jack a little something about what his childhood with his father was actually like. Chet dies but not before Shawn tells him that he needed him and still does. This was a really sad episode. Shawn's speech, especially the bit about him sitting by the TV waiting for his father to say something to him was so sad. The picture as the present was nice. I think if he hadn't of died, he would've stayed around because he was needed there.moreless
  • Sad episode.

    Chet, Shawn and Jack’s father, comes in to visit. He has a heart attack and is put in the hospital. Shawn is really angry with him because of what he did during Shawn’s childhood. Chet was never around for him, and when he was, he was either drunk or not paying attention to him at all. Cory and Topanga write their wedding vows. Chet dies.



    This was an extremely sad, yet awesome episode! I really felt for Shawn and it’s hard for him because he never really knew his father, even though he’s been with him. Jack is also unlucky because he never knew his father at all. This was so sad and emotional. I give it a 10!moreless
