Topanga Lawrence: [turns to Cory in the classroom] What's this?
Cory: The special director's cut.
Cory: [in the video] And the reason that I don't have that much to say about sex, is because I don't have a lot of experience in that area. Some people think I do, but I don't. And if let some people think that I have some experience with someone, well... you know, it really isn't fair to that person I didn't have that experience with.
Mr. George Feeny: [in the classroom, to Mr. Turner] Well, perhaps this project is gonna serve some purpose after all. I'm shocked.
Jonathan Turner: Me too.
Cory: [in the video] So I'd like to say I'm sorry to that person. And I should've acted more mature. You know, maybe we haven't come as far as we think in the last 400 years. Okay, cut it, Shawn. Stop the camera, Shawn.
Shawn Hunter: Okay, now, tell her how much you love her.
Cory: Shut up, I do not.
Shawn Hunter: Then why would you do this for her, if you don't love her?

Mr. George Feeny: Sit! Now, the two of you spent the night unsupervised on school property.
Cory Matthews: Oh, Mr. Feeny, what do you think happ... Oh, my God!
Topanga Lawrence: Mr. Feeny, nothing happened. How could you think that? We're totally innocent. Tell him, Cory.
Cory Matthews: Oh, my God!
Topanga Lawrence: Mr. Feeny, we were working late on our documentary. I fell asleep, then Cory fell asleep. That was it.
Mr. George Feeny: Serious violations like this call for swift, decisive action. Uh... While I decide what that is, you're both dismissed for the rest of the day.

Jonathan Turner: You got this innocent young girl and somebody says that she slept with this other guy, right? And her reputation is shot and we think she's killed herself. Now where are you going to find this kind of stuff?

Cory: What?
Shawn Hunter: I've got nothing to wear!

Cory: Where are you going?
Shawn Hunter: He touched me!
Cory: Where?
Shawn Hunter: On my knee! It's MY knee, what makes him think it's HIS knee?
Topanga: Maybe you sent him a signal?
Shawn Hunter: The only signal I sent him was stop!
Topanga: Sounds like he didn't listen.
Shawn Hunter: I'm not like that. I'm not! I never will be again.
Cory: Okay well here he comes.
Shawn Hunter: No, no no! I quit!
Cory: You can't, we have an article to finish!

Cory Matthews: No, you didn't. You were waving a dollar and yawning at me.
Topanga: Bill... board! How much simpler can it be!

George Feeny: Ms. Lawrence, I have an assignment for you as well. Butt out of other people's business for a week. Otherwise, you get an F.
Topanga: But I've never failed before!
George Feeny: There's a first time for everything.
Cory Matthews: That argument doesn't get you anywhere with her.

George Feeny: You better stay too you little control freak!
Topanga: [shocked] You just yelled at me! But I'm Topanga.

George Feeny: Ms. Lawrence, you're butting in.

Maya Hart: Yeah... Did you care about him, though? I mean, you weren't his real father.
Mr. Turner: No, I wasn't.
Maya Hart: But was it possible for you to...
Cory Matthews: Yes, Maya. I loved him like a son. I still do.

Cory Matthews: What if this is the one time he dies?

Riley Matthews: No, it's not. I'm not going for the success square. I'm going for the circle in the middle. We are going to play the Long Game.
Lucas Friar: What?
Topanga Matthews: But, you could win!
Joshua Matthews: Dude, why would you do that?
Riley Matthews: Because tonight, the Family Game is not about winning.
Topanga Matthews: Uhhh, say what?
Riley Matthews: Mom, I was only trying to beat you because I want you to be proud of me.
Topanga Matthews: You do?

Topanga Matthews: You do?
Riley Matthews: A killer shark who always wins?

Eric: Wait a minute. 4 years times 15 pounds, that's like
Eric: ... That's 500 EXTRA POUNDS?
Topanga: You're not that overweight, Eric.
Eric: Oh come on, I see the way the girls flock to Jack and his 6% body fat and ignore me and my 70% flab. What am I gonna do? I mean I feel so alone.

Eric: Oh that's right, YOU'RE FAT TOO!
[hugs Topanga]
Topanga: Well Eric, maybe we can help eachother.
Eric: Well how? We're pigs.

Eric: And then, we can share it.
Topanga: Nooo, you'll tell me not to eat it.
Eric: And then, I get the whole thing!
Topanga: No, you'll grab it away from me and you'll throw it in the trashcan. Eric, are you with me or not?

Eric: [straining his eyes] Is that you Topanga?
Topanga: Come on, it's not that hard - I smell Danish!
Eric: Topanga, I can't do this, okay? Women reject me based on who I am, not what I look like.
Topanga: This isn't only about you! I want to be as slim and slender as the day Cory met me.

[They kiss and, true to Cory's prediction, Eric enters]
Eric Matthews: Hello!

Cory Matthews: I must've shown Eric like ten places. He doesn't like anything. Okay, one place has a white fridge. He wants avocado. Then he insists on something with an ocean view so he can relax his nerves.

Cory Matthews: We live in Philadelphia!
Topanga Lawrence: Stop snapping. I'm the girlfriend.
Cory Matthews: Say kiss.
Topanga Lawrence: Kiss
[they do]
Cory Matthews: Sorry. It's just I don't understand Eric. He's got this great opportunity to be out of the house and instead he returns home to give *me* the business.
Topanga Lawrence: You know what you need? You need some college guy to walk down those stairs, announce that he's new in town and that he needs roommates.
Cory Matthews: If you love me, you could make that happen.
Jack Hunter: Excuse me. New guy in town. Going to Pennbrook. Just got a three bedroom apartment and I'm looking for roommates
Topanga Lawrence: I heard him talking outside but I do love you though.

Cory Matthews: Finally something good happens for Cory. The world is my friend.
Shawn Hunter: [to Jack] What are *you* doing here?
Cory Matthews: No, don't ruin this for me. Shawn, listen, whoever this guy is. Whatever minor personal infraction happened between the two of you, let it go. Because the world knows that this one is gonna be Eric's roommate and the world is *my* friend.
Topanga Lawrence: How do you two know each other?
Shawn Hunter: He's my brother.
Cory Matthews: Of course he is! He is *not* your brother!

Amy Matthews: Okay Cory, you educate me. You tell me what love means to you.
Cory Matthews: Mom listen, I haven't been with Topanga for 22 years but we have been together for 16. Ok, that's a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were 2 we were best friends. I mean I, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, I knew her favorite food. Then we got to be 6 and Eric made fun of me because it wasn't cool to have a best friend that's a girl, or even know a girl.
Eric Matthews: Yeah, and you listened to me. Idiot.
Cory Matthews: So for the next 7 years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those years the lost years.
Topanga Lawrence: You were the one who made him throw dirt me?
Eric Matthews: You were a girl, noogie head.
Cory Matthews: Then when I was 13 Mom, she put me up against my locker, she kissed me. I mean she, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance, she always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said, all I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about. And when I'm with her I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that's, that's what I think is love Mom. When I'm better because she's here. And now she won't be. So I'm finished.
Topanga Lawrence: I think it's a good thing that Cory is the only boy I've ever loved. And I was looking forward to doing all of the things that people do who are in love. With Cory. And not just with some guy in Pittsburgh because I'm there.

Amy Matthews: Topanga, your parents don't know you're here, do they?
Eric Matthews: No. No, they don't.
Alan Matthews: Topanga, your parents are gonna be very worried about you.
Topanga Lawrence: Why would they be worried about me now? They weren't worried about me when they decided to move. I told them how much Cory meant to me and how I couldn't be away from him. I guess I was too young to say things like that, that I didn't know.
Alan Matthews: So you ran away from them?
Topanga Lawrence: I ran away to Cory.
Alan Matthews: Okay... It just got serious now.
Amy Matthews: Topanga, I'm gonna have to call them.
Cory Matthews: No, Mom! Didn't you hear what she just said? Her parents don't understand her. Just like you two don't understand me. We want to be together, okay? That's what we want!
Amy Matthews: Topanga, I know you miss Cory. But to come here, without your parent's permission, that's just wrong!
Cory Matthews: How could it be wrong, Mom, if she loves me enough to do that? I mean, I'm sorry I didn't do it myself.

Mr. George Feeny: Even though this isn't a classroom at the moment, would you mind if I taught you a lesson anyway?
Topanga Lawrence: Please.
Mr. George Feeny: Believe it or not, there was a time in my life when I cared for someone as deeply as you two care for each other now.
Cory Matthews: You believe we love each other?
Mr. George Feeny: And for no reason I understood, my wife was taken from me, and I haven't been so deeply in love since.
Cory Matthews: [to Topanga] Feeny believes we love each other!
Mr. George Feeny: I believe that when you find love, you hold on to it, and cherish it! Because there is nothing finer, and may never come again. And that, my dears, is the most important thing I could teach you.

Topanga: I finished my valedictorian speech. You guys wanna hear it?
Stuart Minkus: Oh? What makes you so sure you're valedictorian, little missy?
Topanga: Cause I'm Topanga.
Stuart Minkus: Well, I'm Minkus, and last time I checked, I had 699 As, which by my count, is that same number as you.
Cory: You counted As? What kind of sick person would count As?
[Topanga looks at him]
Cory: Oh.
Topanga: I'll tell you what to do, Stuart. You can go get Feeny's gradebook and count them AGAIN.
Stuart Minkus: You did something, didn't you?
[to Cory]
Stuart Minkus: She did something, didn't she?
Cory: Take it easy, Minkus. You never had a chance.
Stuart Minkus: Oh, she's an evil little girl, Cory. She's an evil little girl.
Cory: Yeah, but every time I kiss her, it don't care.

Topanga: Should I go to Yale?
George Feeny: If you're asking me if Yale is one of the finest academic institutions in the country, then I would have to say... Duh.

Topanga Lawrence: It doesn't have to be.
Cory Matthews: Look, Topanga... If I had to dream up the perfect woman... she wouldn't even come close to you.

Cory: I have to talk to her now, ok.
[to Shawn]
Shawn Hunter: Go ahead.
Cory: Ever since I was young I never understood anything about the world, and I never understood anything that happened in my life. The only thing that ever made sense to me was you, and how I felt about you. That's all I've ever known and that's enough, that's enough for me, for the rest of my life.

Eric Matthews: [addressing Cory's class] You've all known each other since kindergarten, but next year there's gonna be maybe 9 or 10 other 6th grade classes from different schools making up your 7th grade class and you're not gonna know all those kids. A lot of them are going to think differently than you.
Stuart Minkus: What do you mean?
Eric Matthews: Well, do you smoke cigarettes?
Stuart Minkus: No.
Eric Matthews: Lot of kids in your new school will, lot of them will try and pressure you into it, telling you how cool it is to smoke. You want to be cool, don't you?
Stuart Minkus: More than you can ever know.
Eric Matthews: Maybe you'll smoke.
Stuart Minkus: I don't think so.
Eric Matthews: Why not?
Stuart Minkus: Because according to the New England journal of medicine, smoking reduces lung capacity, leads to emphysema and causes heart attack and lung cancer.
Eric Matthews: What if...
[points at Topanga]
Eric Matthews: she thought it was cool, then would you smoke then?
Stuart Minkus: In a heartbeat.

Cory Matthews: What about it?
Eric Matthews: [to Shawn] What about drugs?
Cory Matthews: Hey, calm down, Eric, we're not into that stuff, what we like is baseball and comic books.
Eric Matthews: Yeah, that's what you like NOW, but that's going to change, just like you're changing schools, just like you're gonna start feeling a lot of new stuff inside of you you're not really gonna understand.

Topanga Matthews: Oh, you're so sweet. Donna's a great name, too! Uh, anyway, I'm one of those annoying magazine people who call at the worst time I know. Don't you just hate us?

[gets up and goes to Cory]
Topanga Matthews: Tell me; tell me!
Cory Matthews: Perhaps you didn't hear me when I said "I didn't sell one magazine and I'm in the business," seventeen seconds ago.
Topanga Matthews: Right. So Judy - she's my boss - she calls me into her office today with two other associate editors. She asks me for my opinion on what our first cover should be!

Topanga: An attack?
Cory: An attack from another world.
Topanga: An attack from another world. All right, let's look again. What about the relationship between God and man?
Cory: Oh, okay. I was about to get there. See, God, unhappy with how some particular humans treat other particular humans who love them, has decided it's the end of the world. And I think he's right.
Topanga: God is protecting the people in this little town! They live their lives and they come out of their houses, and they see this sky and they know God's protection and love. And that everything will be all right.

Auggie Matthews: What? Oh... I wasn't praying. I mean, I do pray. I pray, in the bathtub, I pray that I won't get sucked down the drain.
Cory Matthews: Well, it's working for ya.
Topanga Matthews: Wait, so Auggie, who have you been talking to?
Auggie Matthews: Mrs. Svorski. I'm worried she doesn't have anyone to talk to anymore.
Cory Matthews: Auggie, you know what? She's got people up there that love her. And she's got you down here. Don't worry, she's covered.

[He turns to face everyone, near tears]
Cory Matthews: I'm a hypochondriac.
Topanga Matthews: Cory, it means that there's nothing wrong with you! It means you create stuff in your head!
Cory Matthews: Yes, well.
[He holds up a prescription bottle]
Cory Matthews: He gave me these placebos.

Auggie Matthews: [to his parents] What's happening?
Topanga Matthews: Well, I think Ava might be ready for the real life approach now. She knows that Scruffles is made up, but that your friendship is real.
Cory Matthews: And then, when you don't understand what life is doing, the most important thing that friends can be, is there for each other.

Topanga Lawrence: Well, Lauren's a nice girl, Cory. I knew you'd have fun.
Cory Matthews: Yeah, but I-I didn't know I was allowed to. See, when I first met Lauren, she was the first girl besides you that I ever thought I could like. And that made me feel bad because I thought if I liked another girl, that it somehow meant that I liked you less.
Topanga Lawrence: I'm sorry you felt bad.
Cory Matthews: No, no, no. I-it was good that I went through this. Because it taught me that liking someone else could never, ever take away from loving you, and I don't have to be afraid of what I feel for anybody else because I know that it could never take away from loving you and I always will, and I know that completely now.
Topanga Lawrence: You know that now?

Cory Matthews: [mumbles to himself] Love you completely, know that now...

Topanga Lawrence: Cory, I can't see you anymore.
Cory Matthews: What?
Topanga Lawrence: Do you have any idea how many guys hit on me?
Cory Matthews: What are you talking about?
Topanga Lawrence: I never needed to test my feelings for you. I moved away from my parents in Pittsburgh to be close to you. Ever since we were little kids, I felt like I belonged with you and I would have given you everything, Cory.
Cory Matthews: Topanga, I'm-I'm so sorry.
Topanga Lawrence: I forgive you. I forgive you for lying at the lodge. I forgive you for kissing her. And I forgive you for the letter, which I read. I know how intimately she felt about you. But that you needed to see her, to test how you felt about me.
Cory Matthews: No.
Topanga Lawrence: I don't forgive you for that, Cory.
Cory Matthews: [He stands up] No! You told me to see her, Topanga! You told me to see how I felt!
[Topanga stands up and hugs Cory]

Cory Matthews: Of course not. It's me, right? Just because we're not going out anymore, you don't want to go out anymore. What's that about?
Topanga Lawrence: Cory, it's about a decision we made to just be friends and I don't think we should complicate that.
Cory Matthews: Topanga, it's a dance. In socks. What's complicated about that?
Topanga Lawrence: Cory, you're the one who broke up with me. Don't you understand that?
Cory Matthews: Of course I do! I know exactly where we stand. And if you're not careful I'll break up with you again.

"Boy Meets World: The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter (#3.15)" (1996)
Topanga: You don't understand women. You don't know what we are, you don't know how we feel, and you don't know what we think. You see us as dating objects and the faster we are, the more you want us. And until you can grow up and see beyond that, no matter how many girls you go out with, you will always be lonely.
