What A Drag!

Aired Friday 8:30 PM Dec 03, 1999 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Eric and Jack cross dress and Eric is seen as the "ugly" girl and Jack as "pretty". Interesting enough, the same reaction is shown for the character's brother in the season 4 episode Chick Like Me.

    • Jack said that they turned Luther and his friends in before they could do anything illegal; however, they did break and enter the Student Union which is illegal.

    • Boy Meets World seems to have a slight attraction to cross-dressing, as this is the fourth time it is visited. Eric and Jack also wore dresses in Fraternity Row; Cory and Shawn dressed up as women in Chick Like Me; and Mr. Feeny wore a woman's hat, a pearl necklace and earrings in It's a Wonderful Night.

      Eric: Ding!
      Luther: Fine. I won't look at you wrong. (Looks at Eric, who put his wig back on) I won't look at you at all.
      Eric: (Girl voice) Oh, yeah? Well, I'm beautiful on the inside and on the inside you're a PIG!

    • Topanga: Maybe we could be friends.
      Eric (As Chantel): Oh! We would be such great friends! But I'm sorry, I can't!
      Topanga: Why not?
      Eric: Because soon I will be gone!
      Topanga: Gone where?
      Eric: Either back to France, or killed by Crazy Luther!
      Topanga: The stereo guy?
      Eric: No! The guy who bites off the finger!

    • Topanga: Are you alright?
      Eric (as Chantel, tearfully): No Topanga, I'm not!
      Topanga: I'm sorry, do we know each other?
      Eric: Oh, you're Topanga. Everyone knows you. You're beautiful and you have a wonderful husband who loves you. And I'll never have a husband because I'm a shabby little French girl!

    • Eric: I look like a bison?
      Jack: No, no, he was just saying that, don't take it so hard.
