  • One of the great moments in the Cory/Topanga story--the first defining moments of them actually as a couple, and a sign of things to come.

    10
    When Cory tells Topanga he loves her, she dumps him without an explanation, and he struggles to understand why. Through the advice of Mr. Williams (who has just gotten a job as the media arts teacher at John Adams High), he asks her for the truth as to why she ran away.

    The episode is really defines both Cory and Topanga well and shows how their relationship will work for the remainder of the series. He is consistently the loyal and steadfast one, pursuing her even when she is unsure. Topanga sometimes wavers because she is mature enough to know that there are some things she isn't old enough to understand. However, this time, Cory comes through for her and defines love. He teaches her what it means to care about someone in an eleven o'clock scene that is very moving and somehow manages to avoid all sitcom cliches.

    It is also full of classic lines such as thinking cramps, Shawn mistaking "what is real" for "something about Israel," and a number of other laugh out loud greats. It is an episode that does not disappoint and is one of the high points of the series.
