"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Texas: Part 1 (#2.20)" (2015)
Pappy Joe: That right there is the first Friar that ever had the courage to ride the most ferocious creature in all of creation.
Riley Matthews: Are we talking about Judy the sheep, Pappy Joe?
Pappy Joe: Ahaha! Judy the sheep! Remember when you fell off Judy after about two seconds, boy? Remember that? And we all said it was okay, 'cause you were only five years old. So we said it was okay, but it wasn't okay, because you were a disgrace to the community, and you dragged your family name through the mudhole right up to this day! You put us in the mudhole, remember, boy?
Lucas Friar: Yes. There is one moment in every man's life that shapes who he is forever. My moment was Judy the sheep.
Pappy Joe: Well, you know what, Lucas Friar? Forgiven! You get on that bull for more than three seconds, and you will be the master of Tombstone the bull. And I'll tell you I love you. That's something I've never said to another human.
Cory Matthews: Can we talk about this?
Pappy Joe: The time for talking's over. I've got a permission slip. Babineaux! Got one for you too. Come on, boys. Let's go ride.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: YEEEE-HAAA!
[Cory looks at him]
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: That slipped out.
[gets up to leave. Lucas follows]
Lucas Friar: [turns in the door] YOU DID THIS!
[leaves with Zay and Pappy Joe while Riley and Maya look a little puzzled]

Riley Matthews: Lucas! Tell the bull you're gonna be a veterinarian! It's your only hope!
Lucas Friar: [to the bull] I'm gonna be a veterinarian!
[the bull is even more enraged]
Lucas Friar: He doesn't care!

Maya Hart: I saw he's all right.
Riley Matthews: He was wonderful. How are you?
Maya Hart: I couldn't watch. I don't know why. I just... I couldn't watch.
Riley Matthews: I know why. I know that you think I love him like a brother.
Maya Hart: You know?
Riley Matthews: I know that you thought that for a while.
Maya Hart: Riles, whatever you feel, that's... that's up to you, I...
Riley Matthews: Maya, it's up to you to tell me whatever you feel. You shouldn't be afraid to tell me anything. You're my sister, and I've always wanted a sister.
Maya Hart: Me too.
Riley Matthews: Sisters should tell each other their secrets, don't you think?
[Maya doesn't answer]
Riley Matthews: You couldn't watch him because you were afraid something would happen to him. Because you like him. You make fun of him because you like him. And you've never told me that either. Well, you're right. I love him like a brother. That's how I love him.

[last lines]
Riley Matthews: Hey, Lucas, can I talk to you?
Lucas Friar: Actually, I have something to say to you, Riley. If it wasn't for you, I don't know if I would have gotten on that bull. And if it wasn't for you, I don't know I would have survived in New York. You're really important to me.
Riley Matthews: You are really important to me too, Lucas. We've always been really good at talking to each other. But we've never been too good at holding hands. And then we tried being a couple, and we couldn't even talk to each other. I don't want that. I want to know you're always there to talk to. You're my brother, Lucas. And I'm your sister.
Lucas Friar: That's what you think we are?
Riley Matthews: That's what I think we are.
[kisses him on the cheek. Maya looks confused]
Riley Matthews: I love you, Lucas. And now I know how. How do you feel about him, Maya?
[Maya doesn't answer, just looks conflicted about what to think. The 'To Be Continued... ' line rolls over the screen]

[first lines]
Riley Matthews: We have changed the life of somebody in this room!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Oh, please not me.
Farkle Minkus: I'm happy with my life the way it is. I got tall and my teeth came in nicely.

Riley Matthews: Oh, Lucas, in your whole history, we know what has always been your biggest regret.
Maya Hart: [under her breath] Baaah...
Lucas Friar: What's that? Why would you do that?
Maya Hart: BAAAAAH! You used to be a champion sheep rider on the mutton busting rodeo until you fell off of Judy the sheep.
Riley Matthews: And then you gave up, but you never got over it.
Lucas Friar: That is my deepest, darkest secret! No one knows I fell off Judy the sheep, except...
[suddenly stops talking, and suspiciously turns to Zay]
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: They-they made me, Lucas! They-they made me!
Lucas Friar: How did they make you?
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Uh... I said, "y'all wanna hear a great Lucas story?" They said, "yes."

Lucas Friar: You can't enter me in mutton busters. You can't be over 8 years old or over 55 pounds.
Maya Hart: You're wrong, young Lucas. We entered you last week, and your application has been accepted.
Riley Matthews: [reads from an application] "Congratulations, Lucas Friar. You are an official entry in this year's Austin Round-Up Rodeo. You will be riding Tombstone the sheep."
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: What? Tombstone? Whoa, that's the end of you!
Maya Hart: Why is it the end of him?
Riley Matthews: What's the difference between riding Judy the sheep and Tombstone the sheep?
Lucas Friar: Read it again.
Maya Hart: [takes the application] Blah-blah-blah, over the age of eight for mutton busters, blah, placed you in the adult rodeo where you will, blah, ride Tombstone the sheep.
Lucas Friar: Ooooh, you only got one word wrong!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Let's see if they find that one word.
Maya Hart: [reads the sheet] Blah-blah-blah, bladdy-blah-blah, blah, bladdy, blah-blah-blah, bladdy, blah-blah... Oh! Bull!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Ah! She found it.
Lucas Friar: [angry] You signed me up to ride Tombstone the BULL!
Riley Matthews: [smiling] Are you excited?
Maya Hart: What's the difference between riding a sheep and riding a bull?
Lucas Friar: DEATH! Death is the difference!

Lucas Friar: Well, if I have to ride Tombstone the bull and die in front of everyone, at least it won't be in front of all my friends.
Riley Matthews, Maya Hart, Farkle Minkus: Surprise!
Lucas Friar: Heeeey, it's all my friends...

[Riley runs to Lucas' aid after he fell off Tombstone the bull and now seemingly can't move]
Riley Matthews: Lucas! Lucas! Lucas, are you okay? Lucas, get up!
Lucas Friar: I stayed on for like 30 seconds.

Lucas Friar: I just saw Tombstone the bull, and, uh, why do you hate me?
Riley Matthews: Come on, a bull is just a man cow!
Maya Hart: You're a-scared of a man cow. A-mooo!
Lucas Friar: You two have never actually seen a bull, have you?
Riley Matthews: No, but what we'd like to see are some cold drinks inside an air conditioned refreshment tent.
Maya Hart: Oh, looky here.
[Riley fake gasps before they leave Lucas to go inside the refreshment tent]
Lucas Friar: I just think you may react differently when you actually see a "man cow."

Maya Hart: [after seeing footage of bull riding] I don't want you going anywhere near that bull.
Lucas Friar: Yeah, that makes two of us.
Maya Hart: I want you to take off that stupid outfit, and I wanna get outta here.
Lucas Friar: Maya...
Maya Hart: I saw the bull. I don't think the bull knows this is supposed to be fun.
Riley Matthews: Okay, Maya, let's not shake Lucas's confidence.
[to Lucas]
Riley Matthews: You can do this, right? You can just ride a bull for four seconds and win the Master of Tombstone award?
Maya Hart: Lucas is gonna need a tombstone! There isn't gonna be any more Lucas!
Riley Matthews: He's going to do great, Maya. Zay, tell him he's going to do great.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [to Lucas, without conviction] You'll do great.
Maya Hart: Truth.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: You're gonna die.

Maya Hart: Riley, why do you want him to do this?
Riley Matthews: Because this is better than riding Judy the sheep, and I don't want him to be a disgrace to this community anymore.
Lucas Friar: Well, I don't think that I'm actually a disgrace to the community...
Riley Matthews: You are. I've been talking to people. They have long memories around here.
Rodeo Waitress: [walks up to Lucas] Baaaaah!

Rodeo Announcer: And now, everybody's favorite, Judy the sheep, who will be ridden this year by Timmy McCullough.
McCullough: That's my grandson!
[we see pictures of Timmy falling off Judy the sheep almost immediately]
Rodeo Announcer: And the gate opens, and Timmy McCullough is holding on!... No, he's not.
Pappy Joe: HA! That's his grandson!
Riley Matthews: Pappy Joe!
Pappy Joe: Sorry, Riley. Stereotypical cultural reductions are all I have left.

Rodeo Announcer: And now, for the event you've all been waiting for, bull riding! And this year, will we finally have a master of Tombstone? The record on Tombstone is three point seven seconds. Will someone finally beat it? But first, riding Buttercup, is, Eddie Callaway!
[Eddie falls off his bull in a brutal way]
Rodeo Announcer: Oh! Eddie, that had to hurt. Looks like Eddie's gonna have himself a little lay down for a moment.
Maya Hart: [to Lucas] Are you out of your mind?
Riley Matthews: Lucas, you're serious, right? You can seriously do this?
Lucas Friar: Yeah, I learned from the best, actually.
Maya Hart: Who's the best?
Lucas Friar: ...Eddie Calloway.

Maya Hart: Lucas, look at me. If you do this, I will never speak to you again.
Riley Matthews: Maya...
Maya Hart: Riley, why are you for this?
Riley Matthews: Because I want him to succeed. I want him to make his grandfather proud.
Maya Hart: [to Pappy Joe] You're not proud of him if he doesn't do this?
Pappy Joe: I think you have a fine grasp of the general situation, yeah. In my opinion, it's about facing life, which runs harder than any bull. You gotta face your fears. You ride them, or they ride you.

Lucas Friar: [about Maya] Why would she do this?
Riley Matthews: I don't know, but I am about to find out.
[begins to walk in Maya's direction]
Lucas Friar: Riley, I... I'd kinda like you to watch.
[Riley looks at him, then in Maya's direction, but realizes the seriousness in his face]
Riley Matthews: Then I will.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Texas: Part 3 (#2.22)" (2015)
Riley Matthews: I liked the new boy and you stepped back for me. Then I saw how scared you were for him. You need to feel whatever you feel. How could I keep that from you? Whatever happens, happens.

Charlie Gardner: I heard you and Lucas are just gonna be friends.
Riley Matthews: Yeah! Actually, what we're doing is...
Charlie Gardner: I heard you're free. Are you free?

Cory Matthews: I don't want this.
Maya Hart: We're confused.
Topanga Matthews: I don't want this either.
Riley Matthews: We're going into high school!
Topanga Matthews: You know what your priority is in high school?
Cory Matthews: High school.
Topanga Matthews: It's where you further your minds, and you get an education.
Cory Matthews: You know why?
Topanga Matthews: So you're smart enough not to find yourself in a situation like this!
Riley Matthews: We're not in a situation, everything's fine!
Topanga Matthews: Maya?
Maya Hart: We're in a situation.
Riley Matthews: Why do we have to have feelings?
Cory Matthews: You don't! Get rid of 'em!
Topanga Matthews: You think you like Lucas?
Maya Hart: How can you not like him?
Cory Matthews: I didn't think you liked anybody!
Maya Hart: It's my facade.
Cory Matthews: Don't use big words correctly. It's not who you are.
Riley Matthews: We're Riley and Maya.
Maya Hart: We know our priorities.
Riley Matthews: And nothing and nobody could ever come between us.
Topanga Matthews: You are two confused kids who think you know what you're doing.
Cory Matthews: But you don't. So don't do anything.
Topanga Matthews: Nothing is as easy as it seems when feelings are involved.

Riley Matthews: Yes, Charlie. I will go out with you.

Riley Matthews: Isn't it amazing how comfortable we are with each other?
Lucas Friar: NO! I don't feel comfortable at all.
Riley Matthews: This is the kind of thing we could never do, Lucas, when we were just "Hi, hey, howdy, hi". Now you know what we are.
[punches Lucas]
Lucas Friar: Could you maybe not hit me anymore?
Lucas Friar: You're my brother. Be my brother, give me advice, feel good about it, and nothing will ever be uncomfortable at all.

Auggie Matthews: Why do you need another brother?
Riley Matthews: I'm just trying to do everything best for everybody concerned.

Riley Matthews: How did your time with Lucas go?
Maya Hart: We... sat there, with absolutely nothing to say.
Riley Matthews: Been there, done that.
Maya Hart: Yeah, well, you guys don't have to worry about that anymore now that you're brother and sister.

Riley Matthews: I love talking to him.
Maya Hart: I love... making fun of him.
Riley Matthews: Why?
Maya Hart: Why do I love to make fun of him?
Riley Matthews: Yeah.
Maya Hart: Because he's great.
Riley Matthews: Yeah!
Maya Hart: And... he needs someone like me to take him down. And he needs someone like you...
Riley Matthews: But why? Why does he need me?
Maya Hart: To-to build him up! To tell his Ranger Rick stories to, and make him feel like a hero. You like his stories, and he likes yours.

Maya Hart: Hey Riley, what do you do when you sit next to Huckleberry?
Riley Matthews: Maya, I can't give you advice like that.
Maya Hart: Sure you can. You're his sister, right?
Lucas Friar: Nope, not anymore.
Riley Matthews: Why?
Lucas Friar: Auggie says we can't. And you know what, I think he's right. You already have a great brother!
Riley Matthews: Then what will you be?

Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: You see, Lucas does anything for anybody. He sacrifices being Riley's brother so he doesn't hurt Auggie's feelings.
Farkle Minkus: Well, same with Riley. She's stepping back from Lucas so she's doing exactly the same thing.
Riley Matthews: Farkle, stop.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: What? I thought she didn't like him like that anymore.
Farkle Minkus: No, Riley's stepping back from Lucas because...
[Riley covers Farkle's mouth]

Riley Matthews: Farkle, you don't know what's going on. Stop thinking.
Farkle Minkus: I know Auggie's right! He's your only brother. I've seen the way you look at Auggie, and I've seen the way you look at Lucas. It's not the same.
Riley Matthews: I think I know my own feelings.
Farkle Minkus: You're a liar.
Riley Matthews: Farkle!
Farkle Minkus: You're lying to yourself.
Riley Matthews: Lucas and I don't make a good couple.

Riley Matthews: You can't tell anybody.
Farkle Minkus: I will unless you do.
Riley Matthews: Why?
Farkle Minkus: Because we are growing up. And, I don't know how to handle these feelings you're feeling. But I do know that we don't lie to each other. We don't lie to each other, Riley.

Riley Matthews: Farkle, Maya is my best friend. She cares about him, and he cares about her too.

Cory Matthews: I don't have the time. I'm going right for it. You don't think I could mash this up with World War II if I wanted to? America loves Russia. Then America doesn't love Russia. Japan loves France now. Japan asks France to go bowling. So they're going on a couple of dates, but then Japan says to France, "I just want to be friends!" So France says, "I got enough friends!" So they try to be civil with each other. But there is a certain chill while they're hanging out by the lockers. There is a chill! You don't think everyone in this room is going bowling with everybody else at some point? Riley, Maya and Lucas is all about everybody in this room in every room in the whole world in the universe. They just got their first! The jerks!
Riley Matthews: Dad!
Cory Matthews: You're going to high school. You are growing up in spite of my wishes. It's real now. What's happened already is nothing compared to what's gonna happen to you now. I just don't want anything bad to happen to you. Don't let anything bad happen to you!
[Cory packs up his stuff]
Lucas Friar: The class isn't over yet, sir.
Cory Matthews: Nah, I've had it.
[leaves the classroom]


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets the New Teacher (#2.10)" (2015)
Maya Hart: Where's Garaboski?
Lucas Friar: Uh oh.
Riley Matthews: Did we do it?
Farkle Minkus: Did we finally break him?
[Cory walks in]
Cory Matthews: You broke him!
[class cheers]
Cory Matthews: Quiet! Mr. Garaboski retired yesterday.
[class cheers again]
Cory Matthews: Quiet! The guy survives Vietnam *and* *Mrs.* Garaboski, and he can't get past you. Now, he left a letter here that expressed his feelings. "Dear you little"- okay, I can't read this.
Lucas Friar: He always talked about the good old days, before 1985.
Riley Matthews: What happened in 1985?
Farkle Minkus: That was the year the New York Board of Education said you couldn't hit a kid with a ruler.

Cory Matthews: Ms. Burgess is here to teach you about great books and great ideas. Please give her the same respect that you give me.
Riley Matthews: Aw, we could do better than that.

Maya Hart: Riley, stop me right now.
Riley Matthews: From what?
Maya Hart: I can't like a teacher, I'm Maya.
Riley Matthews: It's a good day, Maya. School got better, and now nothing bad is ever going to happen again.
[Principal Yancy walks in]
Principal Yancy: Ah! I'm passing by your classroom on this, your very first day, and I can't help noticing that somebody has a comic book. That everybody has a comic book.
Farkle Minkus: They're graphic novels.
Principal Yancy: Pipe down, Farkle.
Farkle Minkus: I think Harper's trying to teach us something important.
Principal Yancy: Oh, *Harper* is, hm? Well, she's not. It isn't literature, it's comic books, which are against school policy, Ms. Burgess. And so is calling Ms. Burgess by her first name! You will gather these up, and you will teach something important.
[sees a book]
Principal Yancy: "To Kill a Mockingbird"? Are you familiar with this?
Harper Burgess: I know this book.
Principal Yancy: Then teach it, Ms. Burgess.
[exits classroom]
Harper Burgess: So... "The Dark Knight Returns"!

Topanga Matthews: Girls, slow down! What is the rush?
Maya Hart: Dinner is keeping us from our homework.
Riley Matthews: The new English teacher wants us to read this.
Topanga Matthews: This looks like a comic book.
Cory Matthews: Yes!
Topanga Matthews: Didn't we have a teacher who taught us...
Cory Matthews: Yes!
Topanga Matthews: Tell me more about this new English teacher.
Riley Matthews: Motorcycle.
Maya Hart: Leather jacket.
Topanga Matthews: Sounds familiar...
[turns to Cory]
Topanga Matthews: Weren't you on the committee to hire the new English teacher?
Cory Matthews: Yes!

Topanga Matthews: Not all history repeats itself, Cory.
Riley Matthews: Why, what happened to you guys?
Topanga Matthews: Well, we had a pretty cool teacher once.
Riley Matthews: Feenay!
Topanga Matthews: No, we actually had *one* other teacher.
Maya Hart: Did that teacher get along with the principal?
Topanga Matthews: Feeny was the principal.
Auggie Matthews: Feeny taught you every year and was also your principal?
Cory Matthews: Yes!
Auggie Matthews: That would never happen today!
Cory Matthews: We'll see!

Topanga Matthews: How was everybody's day today?
Auggie Matthews: It was a good day, and then my friends treated me nicely, and then my teacher measured me, and I'm growing, and then Jenny Lewis loooves me.
Topanga Matthews: Wait a minute! This already happened.
Auggie Matthews: Yeah, I'm out of stuff.
Cory Matthews: He's right! Nothing new happened at all!
Riley Matthews: Dad got fired today.
Cory Matthews: W-well, there's that... You know how you thought there might be trouble between Yancy and the new teacher?
Topanga Matthews: The young idealist who was gonna win him over.
Cory Matthews: She didn't... so much.
Topanga Matthews: But you defended her?
Cory Matthews: I did.
Topanga Matthews: So Yancy fired you.
Cory Matthews: So much.
Topanga Matthews: Yancy can't fire you. According to Statute 30.28, teacher dismissals have to come from the State.
Riley Matthews: Mom, do you know everything?
Topanga Matthews: Yeah.

Riley Matthews: Hi!
Mr. Turner: Hi.
Riley Matthews: We love Harper. Do you understand, Uncle Jon?
Principal Yancy: Real uncle, or you just call him that?
Riley Matthews: He comes over like a million times...
[turns to Turner]
Principal Yancy: I withdraw my complaint.

Riley Matthews: You know what else is cool? Uncle Jon used to take care of Shawn when he was younger.
Maya Hart: Ya don't say?
Riley Matthews: I do say. And my dad said that they were really good for each other.
Auggie Matthews: Okay Riley, I finished this Archie comic you gave me.
Riley Matthews: I wanted to start him on the road to good books.
Maya Hart: What'd you learn from it, Auggs?
Auggie Matthews: Well, this dark haired girl and this blond girl both like the same boy and they all stay best friends. Could that really happen?
Riley Matthews: ...Nah.
Maya Hart: ...Okay.

Auggie Matthews: He was one of your teachers, Mommy?
Topanga Matthews: Yeah. Mr. Turner helped me learn everything I know.
Auggie Matthews: She knows everything.
Mr. Turner: I know.
Auggie Matthews: Was my daddy a good student?
Mr. Turner: He was a wonderful student.
Topanga Matthews: Why would you lie to my kid?
Mr. Turner: He tried his best.
Topanga Matthews: Why would you lie to my kid?
Mr. Turner: He was so bad, he became a teacher so he could go back to school again.
Maya Hart: So... word has it, you took care of Shawn Hunter?
Mr. Turner: Yeah, I did. His dad was a little off and on. No kid should have that.
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.
Maya Hart: That's good.
Riley Matthews: Dad?
Cory Matthews: Yeah?
Riley Matthews: Thank you for being a good teacher.
Maya Hart: Yeah, thanks.
Cory Matthews: Boy, there's nothing better than hearing that from your students.
[Topanga looks at Cory and then at Turner]
Cory Matthews: Mr. Turner...
Topanga Matthews: Thank you for being a good teacher.
Cory Matthews: Yeah, thanks.

Lucas Friar: You got a bike that goes with that outfit?
Harper Burgess: 1800 cc twin cam fat Bob fuel tank wide glide. What do you ride?
Riley Matthews: He rode a sheep.
Maya Hart: 62 pound quad hoof white fleece, kind you count before you fall asleep, baah-baah.
Harper Burgess: [to Lucas] Wanna race?
Lucas Friar: No.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets the Secret of Life (#2.3)" (2015)
Riley Matthews: [after being sprayed with water from the water spreader by Lucas] Wait a minute! Wait. Lucas, I lost my contact lens!
Lucas Friar: [starts to look for it on the ground] Oh my gosh, Riley, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to do that... Wait a minute, since when did you...
[Riley pours a bucket of water with soap in it over his head, and leaves the bucket there. She shoves him onto the car]
Riley Matthews: You were the first boy I ever liked! That's a big deal for me. Are you worth it? Tell me, and I'll believe you. I want to believe you. Are you worth it?
Lucas Friar: [from under the bucket] Yes.

Lucas Friar: Riley, sometimes things come out when they're supposed to come out.
Riley Matthews: As long as you're not different than I think. Because I think a lot of you.
Lucas Friar: I used to be different than I am now.
Riley Matthews: What happened?
Lucas Friar: I came here.

Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: I did it again. I'm sorry.
Lucas Friar: It's okay, Zay. Get out of here.
[Joey pushes Zay against the locker before he lets him go. Lucas stands in front of Joey]
Joey: Are you kiddin' me? I had a neck in my hand. I liked it. I miss it. You my new neck?
Lucas Friar: Are you the one? 'Cause there's one in every school, isn't it? So, in this school, you're the...
Joey: Yeah. That's me.
Riley Matthews: Daddy, are you going to stop this?
Cory Matthews: Not yet.
Lucas Friar: I couldn't help but notice your pointy boots. Back in Texas, we appreciate a nice pointy boot.
[pushes Joey against the locker and stands on his feet]
Lucas Friar: They can end a fight real quick. Unless somebody knows to put his heel on the soft part right where your toes are.
Joey: Ow.
Lucas Friar: Now, I'm sure you like to throw a punch. Except I got both your wrists, and I'm as strong as a horse. I don't even work at it, I just am.
Joey: The way I see it, all that matters is what happens after you let go.
Lucas Friar: Yeah! I know it'd be simpler if we just start taking shots at each other. But I'm gonna tell you somethin', and you really need to hear this. In the end, you're gonna be the one on the floor, and I'm gonna be the one who walks away.
[Maya does her characteristic shudder, obviously impressed by the new side to Lucas]
Riley Matthews: [to Maya] He's gonna be a veterinarian.
Lucas Friar: So, I'm gonna do you a favor. I'll let you keep your reputation. And I'd like you to let me keep mine. Otherwise, we're gonna be 20 and still be in middle school. You want that?
Joey: I *am* 20.

Lucas Friar: So what are you doing here, Zay?
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Well, maybe I miss my best friend, all right? Maybe I had a friend in Texas and he moved away, and I miss hanging out with him, and I convinced my entire family to pack everything...
Lucas Friar: Your dad got transferred?
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Yeah, same as you.
Lucas Friar: Look, I'm glad you're here, buddy. But I don't wanna have to keep being the same guy you knew back in Texas.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Yeah. I'm not so sure you are.
[they walk out, Lucas with an arm around Zay's neck]
Riley Matthews: People change people.
Cory Matthews: The secret of life.

Riley Matthews: Deny it.
Lucas Friar: Riley...
Riley Matthews: Tell me whoever this Zay kid is, that he just can't come in here and change you from the Lucas we know. Tell me nothing changes.
Maya Hart: That's all you have to do, Lucas. You hear me? I just called you by your actual name for the first time ever. That's how important this is to me. Because it's important to her. Deny it.
Lucas Friar: I can't.
Riley Matthews: I like you. I went on my first date with you. Do you think it's right to let me like you without telling me who you are?
Lucas Friar: You know who I am. I'm Ranger Rick! We rode on a white horse. I asked for your father's permission just to go on a date with you. Who does that?

Riley Matthews: Were you thrown out of school?
Lucas Friar: Yes.
Riley Matthews: For a whole year?
Lucas Friar: Yes.
Maya Hart: I finally like you.

Riley Matthews: [to Lucas] You told me you wanted to be a veterinarian. You told me you once gave birth to a horse.
Maya Hart: That had to hurt.

Cory Matthews: Al washes a car in six minutes. Fred washes the same car in eight minutes. How long does it take Al and Fred to wash the same car together?
Riley Matthews: How is this anything?
Farkle Minkus: Three minutes twenty-five point seven seconds.
Cory Matthews: Wrong.
Farkle Minkus: I'm sorry, what did you just say?
Cory Matthews: You're wrong.
Farkle Minkus: I'm wrong? You're a history teacher teaching English, science, whatever you've got going on at home. You waltz your wife in here on career day.
Cory Matthews: She's a respected attorney!
Farkle Minkus: My father says she should have been my mother!
Cory Matthews: What do you want from me?

Lucas Friar: Mr. Matthews teaches us about a lot of things.
[looks at Riley]
Lucas Friar: He is open minded that way.
Riley Matthews: He can be open minded because he knows who we are.
Lucas Friar: [to Cory] Ooh, she took us both out.


"Best Friends Whenever: Cyd and Shelby's Haunted Escape (#1.9)" (2015)
[inside the haunted house, which got dark for a second]
Shelby: [hugging Riley, thinking she is Cyd] Okay, that was scary, thanks for not bear punching me... you are not Cyd.
Riley Matthews: What's bear punching?
Lucas Friar: [standing next to Cyd, stifled in a crouching position] I think I just found out.

Shelby: Five locks on one door?
Riley Matthews: Welcome to New York.

Riley Matthews: Anybody found any keys?
Lucas Friar: Anybody found any clues?
Shelby: I found this jar of pickles. Why would somebody leave a jar of pickles in here?
Riley Matthews: Welcome to New York.

Lucas Friar: Hey, I found the fourth key!
Riley Matthews: Very impressive, Lucas! How'd you know it was in there?
Lucas Friar: Well, it was the only one not glued to the shelf. Plus, it's called 'The Fourth Key'. And all the other ones are called 'Not This One'.
Riley Matthews: ...a little less impressive.

Riley Matthews: Come on, let's get out of here.
[she and Lucas turns to leave the haunted house]
Cyd: No, stop!
[Riley and Lucas doesn't hear Cyd, her being invisible to them, but when she tries to stop Riley, she accidentally possesses her]
Riley Matthews: [possessed by Cyd] You can't just leave us here, we're time travelers, not ghosts!
[Lucas looks at her weirdly]
Riley Matthews: I mean, regular teen girls!
Lucas Friar: Riley, what are you talking about? Come on, let's go.
Riley Matthews: [possessed by Cyd, to herself] I'm in control of Riley!
Lucas Friar: [confused] You're right, I shouldn't have pushed you, we'll go when you're ready.

Shelby: Cyd, that might be the answer! We can't touch and time travel because we don't have human bodies. So all we have to do is possess their bodies, like you just did!
Riley Matthews: [possessed by Cyd] Right, come on, get into Lucas!
Lucas Friar: [didn't hear what Shelby said] Uh, I have to admit, I'm really confused by that.

Shelby: [to Lucas, who can't see or hear her] Hey, I-I'm really sorry, I-I know we don't know each other that well, and I don't have your permission, and-and this is really rude of me, but I kind of need to...
Riley Matthews: [to Shelby, possessed by Cyd] Lucas doesn't care!
Lucas Friar: That's hurtful, I care about a lot of things!

Riley Matthews: [after Cyd and Shelby leave their bodies] Did your body feel really strange, like, a minute ago?
Lucas Friar: I think that's just a part of growing up.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Rules (#2.7)" (2015)
[first lines]
Lucas Friar: All right, where is your father?
Farkle Minkus: [manic] Are we getting a sub? I don't want a sub. You never know where they've been.
Riley Matthews: Would you calm down? He's one minute late. Stop overreacting.
Farkle Minkus: What if he never shows up? What if I never learn anything else? I'm going down, sir!... Oh, he's not even here.
[falls over]

Riley Matthews: This is exactly what my father wants. He wants us to panic and fall apart. We have to show him that we can get through this without turning into a pack of animals.
[Lucas looks at Farkle]
Lucas Friar: [in a deep, threatening voice] I'm hungry.

Maya Hart: [gets up] You know, Ranger Rick... I'm kinda hungry too.
Lucas Friar: And it's not like the regular kind of hungry, right?
Maya Hart: No, this one's deep. Must be attended to.
Riley Matthews: Oh, guys, could we just show a little discipline? I mean, how much time in here could we possibly have?
[everybody look up at the clock on the wall, which turns a minute, showing that they have been there for one minute. Riley starts to look at Farkle in the same threatening way Maya and Lucas do]
Riley Matthews: You know, I could eat too.
[they force Farkle to walk backwards in the classroom]
Farkle Minkus: What? What are you looking at? Um, guys... What are you seeing right now?
Lucas Friar: [flatly] Stop talking, chicken.

Riley Matthews: You guys better clean up your faces, you look ridiculous.
[hands out tissues to all the classmates with face paint]
Riley Matthews: Lucas, I'll get you.
[starts to clean Lucas' face with a tissue]
Lucas Friar: Thank you. You know, they call me Mad Dog.
Riley Matthews: Of course they do.
Lucas Friar: Would you call me Mad Dog?
Riley Matthews: Would you call me Princess Dancing Sunshine?
Lucas Friar: No, I would not.
Riley Matthews: Well, there you go.

Riley Matthews: All right, come on! Let's prove my father wrong. Let's form our own perfect society. Rileytown is a land of goodness and rainbows where everybody fold their hands nicely like so.
[she folds her hands]
Riley Matthews: Who wants to live in Rileytown?
Maya Hart: Nobody wants Rileytown. It's too lollipop.
Riley Matthews: You're lollipop!
Maya Hart: Sister, I'm a lot of things, but I ain't lollipop.

Riley Matthews: Rileytown has order, structure and our hands folded like so! What do you got?
Maya Hart: I got Mayaville. No rules, no laws, no hand folding and nobody says no.
[Farkle looks at her]
Maya Hart: No.

Riley Matthews: Why are you guys over there? Why can't we just be one happy society that runs the way I think it should?
Maya Hart: Because you want us all to be you.
Farkle Minkus: We're not all you, Riley. I mean, you know the reason I've never been able to choose between you? Because if it was you all the time...
[referring to Riley]
Farkle Minkus: ... life would be like...
[hums happily. After a while, Riley joins in with his humming]
Farkle Minkus: And if it was you all the time...
[referring to Maya]
Farkle Minkus: ... life would be like...
[growls]
Farkle Minkus: [flat singing] Descensus in cuniculi cavum!
[Maya growls and snarls]
Farkle Minkus: I need to be with both of you guys.

Riley Matthews: Maya, we are in detention, you can't leave.
Maya Hart: Hey, school's out. He said we got the place to ourselves, he said to make our own rules. Rule number one: See you around, suckahs.
[leaves the classroom along with most of their classmates]
Riley Matthews: Farkle?
Farkle Minkus: Hey, what part of "descensus in cuniculi cavum" do you not understand?
Riley Matthews: All of it.
Riley Matthews: It means, we drop down into the rabbit hole, maaan.
[leaves the classroom]
Lucas Friar: Lucas?
Lucas Friar: I never do anything, Riley.
[also leaves the classroom, and runs into the hallway, excited]
Lucas Friar: YEAH!


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets the New Year (#2.25)" (2015)
Maya Hart: Help me.
Riley Matthews: Mm. No. I'm out of this. I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy whatever happens for once.
[Charlie raises his hand]
Harper Burgess: Charlie Gardner!
Riley Matthews: Unbelievable.

[Maya and Riley read "Sense and Sensibility" at Topanga's]
Maya Hart: What page are you on?
Riley Matthews: 304. Maya, you know how the girls decide who they love? They throw a ball.
Maya Hart: Cinderelly!
Riley Matthews: Apparently, these sorts of things get decided at the ball. You know what we need? A ball.
Maya Hart: All I know is I've been reading as long as you, and I'm on page seven. I don't think this is in America.
Riley Matthews: [in a fake British accent] What is essential to the situation, my dear Maya, is to host a ball. A grand ball. A New Year's Eve ball. We shall invite all of the eligible gentlemen of good breeding...
[Charlie pops up out of nowhere]
Charlie Gardner: I hear you're having a party.
Riley Matthews: HOW?

Farkle Minkus: Tell them you still like Lucas, Riley. Just tell them the truth. Don't start the new year with a lie.
Riley Matthews: Farkle, Maya stepped back for me when she saw that I liked him. If she has feelings for him, how could I not do the same for her?
Farkle Minkus: You don't know that. You don't know how she feels. I don't think she knows how she feels. You know why?
Riley Matthews: Because she could only read seven pages in three hours.
Farkle Minkus: Because all these things we're feeling are new. We don't know what they are yet. Harper said this all comes at a cost. What's your cost, Riley? Your own happiness?
Riley Matthews: Farkle, you said that wouldn't tell anybody. How could you do this to me?
Farkle Minkus: I'm doing it *for* you, Riley. I care so much about you, I want you to know that the truth is always the best thing.
Riley Matthews: How is it the best thing if it turns everything into a mess?
Farkle Minkus: You don't think this is a mess already? I want you to tell them. I know you would have me do the same thing. You ever heard of the horn of Gabriel?
Riley Matthews: No.
Farkle Minkus: He's an angel. They say when he blows his horn, it's the end of time. If you don't tell everybody how you really feel, his horn blows at midnight.
[imitates the horn with his characteristic 'HAAAAH' catchphrase]
Farkle Minkus: Just because I don't do it much, doesn't mean I can't.

Harper Burgess: Do you give in to your feelings or let your mind rule over your heart?
Maya Hart: I follow my heart. It gets me into trouble.
Farkle Minkus: What about you, Riley?
Riley Matthews: My mind tells me to do what's right.
Harper Burgess: Can anyone answer which is more valuable to follow?
Lucas Friar: It depends on the situation.
Harper Burgess: No, it doesn't.
Lucas Friar: [shouting] Just taking a shot!
Harper Burgess: Very passionate.
Lucas Friar: Thank you!
Harper Burgess: ...And that's where we run into trouble.
Lucas Friar: You set me up!

Lucas Friar: [sits down next to Maya] Hi.
Maya Hart: Hi.
Riley Matthews: [sits down next to Lucas] Hi.
Charlie Gardner: [pops out of nowhere next to them] Heard this was gonna be awkward.

Riley Matthews: [playing "The Couple's Game", picking a card] Okay, first question is for us. "What is your partner's favorite movie snack?" I know this. It's popcorn and licorice.
Charlie Gardner: If something funny happens and she thinks she laughed too hard, she looks around the theater to see if anybody heard her. And if she thinks something scary is gonna happen, she reaches out and grabs your arm and...
Lucas Friar: And she doesn't even know she did.
Charlie Gardner: It's not your turn, Friar!
Lucas Friar: And that wasn't the question, Gardner! What's her favorite snack?
Charlie Gardner: Gummies.
Lucas Friar: Yeah, but wh...
Charlie Gardner: Red.
Lucas Friar: Yeah, but what does she...
Charlie Gardner: She bites their heads off first so they feel less pain.
Lucas Friar: He's like a creepy creep creep!

Isadora Smackle: My turn. "What is your partner's most ticklish place on their body?"
Riley Matthews: Uh, Farkle and Smackle?
Maya Hart: How would they possibly...
Lucas Friar: ...know anything like that?
Farkle Minkus: [Smackle tickles him behind his ear] HAAAAAAHHH!

Riley Matthews: Okay, um, we'll do one more...
[picks a game card]
Riley Matthews: "Have you ever kept a secret from somebody you love?" Game over.
Farkle Minkus: Why, because you know secrets are dangerous?
Riley Matthews: No, Farkle, because it's almost midnight.
Farkle Minkus: And you know what happens at midnight?
Riley Matthews: Okay, it's time to go up to the roof.
[drags Farkle with her out of the apartment. The others stand back, shocked. Lucas ends up standing next to Smackle, who looks at him]
Lucas Friar: [realizes] I just happened to be standing next to you.
Isadora Smackle: Who's the creepy creep creep now?


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Ski Lodge: Part 2 (#3.9)" (2016)
Cory Matthews: You been up all night.
Topanga Matthews: She gets this from you.
Riley Matthews: How long have you guys been there?
Topanga Matthews: We stayed up all night talking too! Wanted to see what the big deal was.

Riley Matthews: It was really great talking to you, Evan, but I have to get upstairs, right now, before-
[turns around and sees Maya and Lucas standing there]
Maya Hart: She's wearing the same clothes.
Lucas Friar: [pointing at Evan] Who's that?
Maya Hart: While we're wearing new ''different'' clothes.
Lucas Friar: Who's that?
Maya Hart: She looks sleepy to me...
Lucas Friar: That one there. Who is that?

Lucas Friar: It's not about today, it's about last night.
Riley Matthews: All we did was talk.
Lucas Friar: ...okay.
[walks away]
Riley Matthews: Lucas, I'm not allowed to talk?
Lucas Friar: Sure you can. You can talk to whoever you want, Riley.
[leaves the room]
Riley Matthews: Maya?
Maya Hart: I'll take care of it. He'll be fine.

Evan: I'm really sorry, Riley. But I did like staying up with you all night.
Riley Matthews: Thank you, Evan, but maybe we shouldn't say that out loud.
Isadora Smackle: You're wearing the same clothes.
Farkle Minkus: You look sleepy to me!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Who's that? That one there, who's that?

Riley Matthews: How is it possible that Maya and I like the same boy?
Joshua Matthews: I'd be more surprised if you didn't.
Riley Matthews: Why?
Joshua Matthews: Look, it's not hard to notice Maya's been going through some stuff lately.
Riley Matthews: Yeah. She hasn't been herself for a while.
Joshua Matthews: Yeah. Why do you think that is?
Riley Matthews: 'Cause she became like me. I always wanted to be her, and then she became like me.
Joshua Matthews: Now why would she do that? Huh? Why would someone give up who they are to be more like someone else?
Riley Matthews: Could you just tell me?
Joshua Matthews: I mean, I've got a pretty good guess. Look, you guys are the best friends I've ever seen. Okay, you love each other so much you wanna share each other's experiences.
Riley Matthews: I do.
Joshua Matthews: Everything you do is to protect each other. When she gave up who she was, you went looking for her, you got her back, you protected her.
Riley Matthews: Yeah but, why did she get lost in the first place? Why did she want to become like me... why do we like the same boy?
Joshua Matthews: Ehh... you don't, Riley. You don't. She's been trying to protect you.

Maya Hart: We're letting boys into our lives. How do I know if he's the right guy for you? How do I know if he's good enough?
Riley Matthews: You're the only one who's good enough for me.
Maya Hart: This we've always known.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Texas: Part 2 (#2.21)" (2015)
Riley Matthews: The only thing I know is that I wanna be able to talk to you. And that maybe this is the best way to do that.
Lucas Friar: That's what you want?
Riley Matthews: You know what I don't want? I don't wanna go out for a while, break up, and not like each other anymore. Isn't that what happens next, isn't that what people do? I don't understand that, Lucas. I always want you around. Maybe the best way to do that is to be like brother and sister.

Vanessa: A little possessive, no?
Maya Hart: Well, the good ones, you don't let get away, know what I mean? With all the girls chasing him around New York City, you have to swoop right in or he'll be gone! I said, YOU HAVE TO SWOOP RIGHT IN OR HE'LL BE...
Riley Matthews: Isaiah Hank Babineaux!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: No...
Riley Matthews: I don't care. I only care that you don't let Maya get her hooks into you when you know you are mine.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: This is my friend, Riley.
Maya Hart: Now how do you like it when he calls you a friend, Riley?
Riley Matthews: I don't like it.
Maya Hart: No, you do not like it.
Riley Matthews: I do not like it when you call me "just friend".
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Well, what would you like for me to call you?
Riley Matthews: I would like for you to call me "Cotton Candy Face"!
Maya Hart: Good girl, I know that was hard.
Vanessa: Zay, is it possible I've misjudged you?
Riley Matthews: It's possible, Vanessa.
Vanessa: How do you know my name?
Riley Matthews: Um...
Maya Hart: Too much, too much, too much!

Riley Matthews: Promise we'll always be friends, no matter what?
Maya Hart: Riley...
Riley Matthews: Promise. No matter what happens, I am telling you, I'll always be your best friend no matter what.
Maya Hart: Oh. There is *nothing* I could do?
Riley Matthews: No, there's not. There is nothing you could do, Maya. Do you understand? It's you and me, until the time that we, you know...
Riley Matthews, Maya Hart: [imitate dying] Bleh.

Riley Matthews: You need to feel whatever you feel, Maya. It's you and me forever. There is *nothing* that you could ever do to change that.

Riley Matthews: Maya likes you.
Maya Hart: Riley!
Riley Matthews: She's been hiding it all this time. It's why she couldn't watch you at the rodeo.
Maya Hart: What are you doing?
Riley Matthews: I saw you, Maya. I saw how much you cared.
[to Lucas]
Riley Matthews: It's why she makes fun of you, I think.
Lucas Friar: Riley, what are we?
Riley Matthews: I told you what we are.
Lucas Friar: What if that's not what I think we are?

Riley Matthews: [to Maya] You stepped back. I know you stepped back.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Permanent Record (#3.4)" (2016)
Maya Hart: What, you're not sitting with us anymore?
Riley Matthews: I don't deserve to sit with you guys. I am disgraced. D for disgraced.
Lucas Friar: Riley, it's only one grade.
Maya Hart: Yeah, you know how many Ds I got in middle school? Once I got five Ds in one day.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: You're Cinco de Maya.

Farkle Minkus: What do you do when you realize you're not the smartest kid in school anymore?
Riley Matthews: I don't know. Maya, what do you do when you realize your best days might have been in middle school?
Maya Hart: I don't know. Why don't we ask my big fat honkin' A?
[puts the paper to her ear like a phone]
Maya Hart: What do you do, A? Uh-huh? Uh-huh?
Riley Matthews: What did it say, what did it say?
Lucas Friar, Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Shh!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Maya and A don't get to spend a lot of time together.
Lucas Friar: Let's let them have a moment.
[everyone except Riley and Maya leaves]
Maya Hart: [still talking to the paper] Oh, I don't know... Anywhere in the world, as long as it's with you. Yeah, she's great. She doesn't get good grades, though.
[Riley leaves, upset. Maya puts the paper down to leave to, but then goes back to it and puts it to her ear again]
Maya Hart: No, you hang up. No, you hang up! You still there? Oh, A!

Isadora Smackle: I am excited that we are partaking in this intellectual endeavour together, dearest.
Farkle Minkus: As am I. Even though I am beginning to think that you are my intellectual superior.
Isadora Smackle: I used to think so, but now I regard us as equals.
Riley Matthews, Maya Hart, Lucas Friar, Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: Aww.
Farkle Minkus: Good. Then you're not as smart as I thought.
Lucas Friar: AWW... aw...
[everybody look at him]
Lucas Friar: I hate when that happens.

Riley Matthews: [Riley "attempting" to speak Spanish in class] Today I ham ha-wearing sandals.

Riley Matthews: I learned how to conjugate the Spanish word Chewbacca.
Topanga Matthews: How do you do that?
Riley Matthews: [makes wookie noise]


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets 1961 (#1.9)" (2014)
Cory Matthews: I'm talkin' about the 60's, man!
Riley Matthews: Nobody cares about when you were our age.
Cory Matthews: Riley, it was over fifty years ago. How old do you guys think I am?
Lucas Friar: There's no right answer to this, sir.

Maya Hart: History has nothing to with us.
Cory Matthews: I'm gonna snap this chalk now.
Lucas Friar: Uh-oh.
Cory Matthews: [snaps his chalk] Snap! What did you guys do yesterday?
Riley Matthews: I think I had grapes.
Cory Matthews: Do you know what yesterday was?
Riley Matthews: Grapes Day!
Cory Matthews: It's history. Every decision you make every day, every time you decide to turn left instead of right, you make history. And you affect someone else's. And if you refuse to learn that, I guarantee you you guys will not become the best person you can be. Because history is all about missed opportunities. "History has nothing to do with us," wasn't it, miss Hart?
Maya Hart: Can't remember, it was like five minutes ago.

Riley Matthews: I am a continuation. That's what history's about. Right, Dad?
Cory Matthews: Oh! Now I get it!

Riley Matthews: Whatcha lookin' at?
Maya Hart: Art book. Miss Kossal gave it to me. It's got all the best artists and their best paintings. It's amazing... and depressing.
Farkle Minkus: She's trying to motivate you.
Maya Hart: Ain't workin'! Look at these. I could never do anything near this. These people have all got something to say.
Lucas Friar: Well, you only know that because they went ahead and said it.
Maya Hart: You know, someday you're gonna make somebody a wonderful fortune cookie.

Riley Matthews: [gives Maya a guitar] This has been in my family for over fifty years. But I feel like it belongs with you. So I hope that whenever you see it, it will remind you that even though Rosie's friend gave up, you never should.
[Maya looks touched for a moment, before clearly getting an idea. She looks at Lucas with a smug look on her face]
Lucas Friar: [realizing] Oh, no...
Maya Hart: [starts playing a tune, imitating Merlin Scoggins] Hello, I'm Bucky McBoeing Boeing.
[starts singing]
Maya Hart: I got a great granddad who's a Ranger Rick, and a Hopalong, and a Sundance too. Everybody!
Maya Hart, Classmates: I got a great granddad who's a Ranger Rick, and a Hopalong, and a Sundance too!


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels (#2.5)" (2015)
Auggie Matthews: Uncle Eric, how come you look like this?
Cory Matthews: Because they elected him mayor.
Riley Matthews: Who would do that?
Topanga Matthews: The good people of Stupidtown.
Eric Matthews: It's not pronounced Stupidtown!
Topanga Matthews: How is it pronounced?
Eric Matthews: St. Upidtown!
Topanga Matthews: Oh. How St. Upid of me.

Eric Matthews: I have been summoned. Why have I been brought here?
Topanga Matthews: Because Cory thinks when it comes to helping people, you somehow turn into a genius.
Riley Matthews: I'm in a fight with my best friend.
Eric Matthews: There will be no losing friends. Lose one friend. Lose all friends. Lose yourself.

Eric Matthews: Now, which one of you is Riley's friend Malisha?
Maya Hart: It's Maya.
Eric Matthews: Oh, okay. So, what are you fighting about?
Maya Hart: She didn't take my side.
Riley Matthews: I couldn't take her side based on what was said, which is the problem with this whole thing, 'cause Maya is making too big of a deal of what was said.
Eric Matthews: Uh-huh. Okay. Okay. Now, which one was she?

Farkle Minkus: You know, I've never admitted this before, but sometimes I wonder if my desire for world domination actually comes from deep down, feeling like I'm Squeak the Mouse.
Lucas Friar: What makes you feel like that?
Farkle Minkus: You do.
Lucas Friar: How?
Farkle Minkus: Just by being alive, you freak!
Lucas Friar: I'm a freak?
Farkle Minkus: Look at you! Look at your freak face and your freak hair, you make me sick!
Lucas Friar: Hey, you think this is easy? You think it's easy being me every day?
Farkle Minkus, Riley Matthews, Maya Hart: Shut up!
Lucas Friar: Yeah, okay.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: One dollar to look at the freak.
Lucas Friar: Oh, be quiet, Flatbutt.

Cory Matthews: You got this?
Eric Matthews: Yeah, the people elected me mayor because they trust me with their issues.
Riley Matthews: You mean political issues?
Eric Matthews: No, don't know anything about those. No, they trust me with their people issues. Which it turns out everybody has, and they all seem to show up right about now. The enemy is not each other, guys. You're all going through the same thing.
Cory Matthews: It's part of growing up.
Riley Matthews: I'm a klutz.
Maya Hart: I'm a pancake.
Farkle Minkus: Squeak.
Lucas Friar: Freak.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [about him being called 'Flatbutt'] That's why it hurts to sit!


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Rileytown (#2.17)" (2015)
Riley Matthews: You're the worst bully ever, Peaches.
Maya Hart: I know. Peaches the bully just doesn't strike fear into the hearts of anybody.

Riley Matthews: Stop saying that! People don't make fun of other people. What did I ever do to you? "You exist and you're weird, and you get in the way of where I'm looking. So stop being weird and stop being happy. No one should be as happy as you. Stop being who you are. Or I'm gonna put my foot in your weird, stupid face."

Lucas Friar: Why would you not tell me about this?
Riley Matthews: I should be able to fight my own battles, Lucas.
Lucas Friar: No you shouldn't, Riley, and you don't have to. That's the point of having friends. And did you really think there was anything you could put in this window to keep me from helping you?

Riley Matthews: This will be done when you treat me like an ordinary person who nobody notices.
Maya Hart: You're not. You're a sweet, weird little goof ball and I love you just the way you are. Deal with it.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets High School: Part 2 (#3.2)" (2016)
[first lines]
Maya Hart: Riles?
Riley Matthews: Peaches?
Maya Hart: How are you feeling today?
Riley Matthews: Well, I didn't cry all night.
Maya Hart: That's good.
Riley Matthews: 'Cause I stopped when I passed out from crying.

Nikki: Don't lose your friends.
Riley Matthews: But they're angry at us.
Thor: They're not angry at you at all.
Riley Matthews: Then what are they? They were humiliated.
Thor: Like we were.
Maya Hart: Why?
Thor: Because it's high school. In there, everybody gets massacred.
Riley Matthews: That's why you guys put us into a safe place.
Francesca: That's not the safe place, that's a hole.
Nikki: We just wanted you guys to be together. Your safe place is each other. Go get your friends.

Riley Matthews: How did you guys resolve your triangle?
Nikki: Oh, let me see... You still like him?
Francesca: Yeah. You still like him?
Nikki: Yeah.
Thor: We need to decide!

Maya Hart: When you left, we should have gone with you.
Lucas Friar: No, when you stayed, we should have stayed with you. I don't know what's the matter with me.
Riley Matthews: Lucas, you left because you don't think you can protect us here. We all need to protect each other here. Okay? No matter what happens in high school, we are the cause we're fighting for. Us. Nobody leaves.
Lucas Friar: Even if we get massacred?
Maya Hart: We're gonna get massacred no matter what we do.
Lucas Friar: I'd like to say that we've never gotten hurt when we're together. And it was my fault that we weren't. I'm truly sorry about that. And I hope it never happens again. You guys showed us what it means to be strong. And smart.
[Riley and Maya sit down on each side of Lucas]
Maya Hart: You still like him?
Riley Matthews: I still like him. I like us all.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets High School: Part 1 (#3.1)" (2016)
Nikki: What are you?
Riley Matthews: I'm Riley.
Francesca: What are you?
Maya Hart: She's my best friend, and we can do without the attitude, madam.
Nikki: What'd you call us?
Maya Hart: I'm gonna probably need help now.
Nikki: You're spunky. You know what I'm gonna call you? Spunky.
Francesca: And what are you, Spunky?
Lucas Friar: Her name is Maya.
[to a random guy]
Lucas Friar: And you can call me Lucas. You wanna know what I am? I'm as strong as a horse. I don't know how. I just am.
Thor: [to the guy] Yeah, he's not even with us.

Marly: What's that on the board?
Cory Matthews: "We were kings. Now we're patriots."
Marly: Why does it say that? It's cryptic. You can't teach us cryptic. What are you trying to get away with, huh?
[Cory opens his mouth, but can't utter words]
Cory Matthews: I'll be right back.
[he walks over to Riley]
Cory Matthews: What's her name?
Riley Matthews: [to Marly] What's your name?
Marly: Marly.
Riley Matthews: [to Cory] Marly.
Cory Matthews: Marly sees right through me.
Riley Matthews: Just keep on teaching about our lives, and she'll come around.
Cory Matthews: Abigail Adams was the wife of John Adams, and the mama of Johnny Q. They were quite the historical triangle.
Riley Matthews: Huh.
Maya Hart: Triangle.
Lucas Friar: Huh.

Lucas Friar: Riley, we don't even know our way around the school yet. Why would we just park ourselves in a hole?
Riley Matthews: Okay, so you just wanna throw us into whatever goes on in this place and just see what happens?
Lucas Friar: Yes, because you know what I call that? Normal.
Marly: Let me see if I get how you teach. My boyfriend and I get into a fight...
Riley Matthews: Aww.
Marly: I was talking about you.
Riley Matthews: Uh, me? Why?
[turns to Lucas]
Riley Matthews: Are we fighting?
Lucas Friar: Oh, I don't know. Let's go to the weird, undefined area between the two floors and talk about it!
Riley Matthews: We are fighting.
[turns to Maya]
Riley Matthews: You have to fight with him exactly as much!
Maya Hart: But I don't know what he...
Riley Matthews: Do it!
[Maya gets up and turns to Lucas]
Maya Hart: Huh-hurr! Huh-hurr! Huh-hurr! Huh-hurr? Huh-hurr, huh-hurr, huh-hurr!
Cory Matthews: [after a slight stunned silence] Who misses middle school?
[he and all the students raise their hands]

Maya Hart: We're not kings anymore.
Riley Matthews: The seniors are the kings.
Cory Matthews: Are they good kings?
Lucas Friar: No!
Riley Matthews: We don't know that yet. We don't know their reasoning.
Lucas Friar: They don't have a reason, Riley. They're just putting us in a hole.
Cory Matthews: Riley's looking for the best in people, right?
Lucas Friar: Yes! Would you tell her to stop?
Cory Matthews: What's the matter, Lucas? It's not so easy to protect them anymore, right?
Lucas Friar: [turns around] Don't look at me!


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Maya's Mother (#1.7)" (2014)
Riley Matthews: Bonjour, Lucas.
Lucas Friar: Bonjour, Riley.
[continues to speak French while Riley looks like a question mark]
Riley Matthews: ...Bonjour, Lucas.

Riley Matthews: Do you have a talent?
Cory Matthews: Does she? Does she? Your mom...
Topanga Matthews: Don't you dare.
Cory Matthews: Your mom's hips don't lie!

Stuart Minkus: So these are the two ladies you tell me keep chasing you, huh?
Farkle Minkus: [whispering to Riley and Maya] Please?
Riley Matthews: Yes, sir, it's us.
Maya Hart: I'm not doing it.
[Riley gives her a nudge]
Maya Hart: Yes, sir, it is us. We hope that one day one of us will be lucky enough to become the future Mrs. Farkle Minkus and have a lot of baby minkii.

[Riley chastises Maya's mother for not attending her daughter's school art show]
Katy Hart: Y'know, all I do with Maya is disappoint her.
Riley Matthews: Here's what's funny. You're not disappointing her at all; you're only disappointing me.
Katy Hart: I came to school and embarrassed her. I pretend I'm fancy, but I'm not. I thought I had a good marriage, but I didn't. I pretend to have a career, and I don't. I love that little girl, and I won't pretend with her.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Ski Lodge: Part 1 (#3.8)" (2016)
Cory Matthews: Nature! The only place a bear can kill ya from. Nature!
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: What happened at the ski lodge?
Riley Matthews: A mountain girl kissed him.
Cory Matthews: I didn't kiss her back!
Maya Hart: Nature!
Cory Matthews: How 'bout I throw you back on the street where ya came from, ya wiff?
Riley Matthews: Those were very bad times for Cory and Topanga but everything's fine now, except we can't ski ever or say ski or walk downhill.
Farkle Minkus: So why's he all upset with nature?
Riley Matthews: Guess where the hike is.
Isadora Smackle: The Mount Sun Lodge.
Cory Matthews: Nature!
[breaks stick]
Riley Matthews: What are you doing, Dad?
Cory Matthews: The ski lodge was almost the end of Cory and Topanga, America's sweethearts. And now I know something there's gonna happen to you. So I am preparing ya for NATURE!

Lucas Friar: You're always such a romantic.
Riley Matthews: I am, I love romance. This triangle needs to die right now.
Maya Hart: What? Why?
Lucas Friar: How? We've tried before.
Riley Matthews: Yeah... but this time there's something stronger. Seasons change. It's nature. Nature knows it's time for the triangle to die.

Riley Matthews: Okay. Triangle - over. Our mothers told us that you made a choice.
Lucas Friar: Yeah, I did. But it shouldn't be my choice, it should be a decision that we all make.
Maya Hart: I got no pride. Just flip a coin, let's get a pizza.
Joshua Matthews: [comes in] Movie night!
Lucas Friar: Movie night!
Riley Matthews, Maya Hart: Coward!
Lucas Friar: I know!

Lucas Friar: Riley, please don't leave me. There isn't anyone else in this world.
Riley Matthews: Because we're the perfect couple?
Lucas Friar: No, because there isn't *anyone else* in this world.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Upstate (#3.6)" (2016)
Riley Matthews: There can't be two Rileys, just like there can't be two Mayas. For the world to work, there need to be one Riley and one Maya.
Shawn Hunter: I know that language. That's Topanganese.

Shawn Hunter: It was ridiculous that he wanted to be like me. I mean, the guy had a great family.
Maya Hart: Yeah.
Shawn Hunter: He had parents who were there.
Maya Hart: Yeah.
Shawn Hunter: And then, Cory met Topanga. Do you know what it's like to go to high school with Romeo and Juliet? Ugh. And so, I loved Angela. Because I thought I was supposed to. Because Cory had Topanga, and they influenced me. It didn't work. I mean, how could it not work? They worked. Then they had you, and I couldn't catch up. So I don't have any of that. I've got trees! And that squirrel I talk to. Hi, Stevie! Cory Matthews messed up my life.
Riley Matthews: Yeah-oh.
Shawn Hunter: [to Maya] And I'm not gonna let that happen to you because of some second generation Cory Matthews!
[Riley gasps]
Maya Hart: Are you gonna protect me from her?
Shawn Hunter: Didn't I say I'd always be there for you?
Riley Matthews: Like Pluto!
Shawn Hunter: Be quiet, Baby Cory!

Shawn Hunter: Cory?
Cory Matthews: Yeah, bud?
Shawn Hunter: What made me... me?
Cory Matthews: Do you know what the best thing is about best friends? You can always depend on them to know who you are. Reckless spontaneity.
Shawn Hunter: What?
Cory Matthews: You always lived in the moment, Shawn. You never cared about what happened or what people thought. I mean, you blew up a mailbox, you turned Feeny's house into a bed and breakfast, and you ran away to find yourself, like, seventy-six times. This ain't new. You wanna find yourself? Remember your reckless spontaneity. That's the best part of you. And the greatest thing that ever happened to me.
Riley Matthews: Besides Mom.
Cory Matthews: I know my own life.

Maya Hart: [to Lucas] No, it doesn't matter, because you picked Riley.
Riley Matthews: WHAT? How do you know? Yay! Oh, I'm so sorry, Maya. YAAAY!
Maya Hart: Because no matter who you picked, you picked Riley. You pick her, you got Riley, you pick me, you got Riley, 'cause that's who I've been lately.
Lucas Friar: What do you wanna do?
Maya Hart: I need to decide whatever way I like you, and not whatever way the little Mary Sunshine part of me skippin' around in there likes you.
Riley Matthews: Okay, I don't skip.
Maya Hart: You skip.
Riley Matthews: It's the safest way to travel.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Triangle (#3.5)" (2016)
Maya Hart: I think Lucas should decide too. I think it should be all of us.
Riley Matthews: I'm going to take Lucas.
Maya Hart: What?
Riley Matthews: What are you gonna do about it? I liked him first, he's my boyfriend.

Riley Matthews: I think of you as somebody who would never let me say what I'm saying to you! I think of you as somebody who would fight for what she believed in. Even me! Especially fight me. Maya, if you like Lucas, then you're gonna have to take him from me.

Maya Hart: [school bell rings] Yay, school's over!
Riley Matthews: No, we have art class.
Maya Hart: That's the one I like.
Riley Matthews: That's the one that likes you.
Maya Hart: What's the one I don't like?
Riley Matthews: All of the other ones.
Maya Hart: That's the one.

Topanga Matthews: [about Maya] What's wrong with her?
Riley Matthews: She's been getting good grades, she's behaving all over the place... What is that?
Topanga Matthews: Well, we like to believe that we helped contribute to the perfectly civilized lovely young lady we see sitting before us.
Riley Matthews: [beat] It's Maya!
Topanga Matthews: Oh, yeah... We broke her.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets First Date (#1.20)" (2015)
Riley Matthews: Do you remember your first date with Dad?
Topanga Matthews: Aw. We were two years old we played in the playground. No, we were eight, and we caught fireflies. No, we were in sixth grade and we kissed against the lockers. No, we threw socks into a laundry basket. No, we fell into a llama pen at the zoo. No... that was his first date with Shawn.

Cory Matthews: You!
Lucas Friar: [mimicking Cory] Me!
Cory Matthews: Auggie's not home.
Lucas Friar: Yeah, I'm not here to see Auggie.
Cory Matthews: Riley's not home either.
Riley Matthews: [she and Maya are standing right behind Cory] Hi, Lucas.
Cory Matthews: That's right, I lied right in yo' face!

Riley Matthews: Lucas?
Lucas Friar: [pauses] Go over there, Riley. Be with your best friend.
Riley Matthews: But what about our date?
Lucas Friar: I had a good time.
Riley Matthews: I'm glad you were my first date.

[Riley recreates the first time she met Lucas, falling over him at the subway]
Riley Matthews: Hi, I'm Riley. We were just talking about you.
Lucas Friar: I'm Lucas.
Riley Matthews: I love it. You know those moments we were talking about that we're going to remember forever?
Lucas Friar: Yeah?
Riley Matthews: This is one of them.
[kisses Lucas briefly on the mouth]


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Yearbook (#2.12)" (2015)
Cory Matthews: So please remember you shouldn't listen to what everybody says. Because if you listen to everybody else, you just might end up crashing your little ships onto the rocks.
Lucas Friar: But you should listen to the people who care about you. Because they have your best interest at heart.
[to Farkle]
Lucas Friar: Right, buddy? You're much more than just a regular guy.
Maya Hart: [acting as Riley] Aww, Lucas, you're a very sweet guy. That's why I always liked you since I fell onto your lap on the subway. It's why we should have been favorite couple. Because we're so much alike. You know, it's like we're two sunshiney people from the same sunshiney family. That's why I like you so much. It's like you're my brother.
[reverts back to herself]
Maya Hart: Oh. It's like he's your...
Riley Matthews: What?
Maya Hart: Woah.
Riley Matthews: What just happened?
Maya Hart: Nothing. Nothing happened. I don't want to be Riley any more. Only you're Riley. I'm Maya. We don't care what you say. We're not crashing our ships. Come back. Come back right now.

[sees Riley walk into class wearing all black]
Lucas Friar: What the...?
Riley Matthews: Life is what we do, between nothings.
Lucas Friar: Is- is this a New York thing, or what is this?
[looks around class for... ]
Lucas Friar: Maya?
[Maya comes into class dressed like Riley]
Maya Hart: Lollipops, and circuses, and things that rhyme with that.
Lucas Friar: No!

Maya Hart: I have no interest living in a world without Riley and Farkle. And I'm not going anywhere until you to come back, you hear me?
Farkle Minkus: Maya, the people you knew aren't here any more.
Maya Hart: Then can you please tell me where I can find them?
Riley Matthews: They're in the yearbook. Keep in touch and have an awesome summer.

Riley Matthews: Yearbooks! Find out who we are and what we really think about each other.
Maya Hart: You wanna know what I think about you?
Lucas Friar: No, I do not.
Maya Hart: But I wanna tell you
Lucas Friar: I don't think you need to.
Maya Hart: I'm gonna do it anyway.
Lucas Friar: Don't do it.
Maya Hart: It's been awhile.
Lucas Friar: I'm asking you not to do it.
Maya Hart: I'm gonna do it.
Maya Hart: You wanna run, or you want it straight in the face?
Lucas Friar: Well, I wanna run, but how would that look?
Maya Hart: [humming scales] ha ha ha ha ha ha hur.
Lucas Friar: You guys won't judge me if I run, right?
Maya Hart: [humming scales] ha ha ha ha ha ha hur.
Lucas Friar: Come on, man.
Lucas Friar: There's always another option.
Maya Hart: [screams] HAHUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Lucas Friar: You okay now?
Maya Hart: Hmm. That was good.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Gravity (#2.1)" (2015)
[first lines]
Riley Matthews: I'm Riley Matthews, from Greenwich Village, New York City, the United States of America, the continent of North America, the western atmosphere, the Earth, the solar system, the universe, the mind of God. And in the middle of all of it, is John Quincy Adams Middle School. Me and my friends, because we are the center of the universe. At least, that's what I thought.

Riley Matthews: We think we're the center of the universe. We think everything revolves around us. We depend on the sun for light, for warmth, every morning, every day. When it's gone, we sleep, trusting that in the morning it will always come back again.

Riley Matthews: The sun doesn't go around the Earth. We are the ones moving. We orbit the sun because we need it. We need its light and its heat. And if it wasn't there, we'd be dark and alone. I wasn't in Mrs. Svorski's orbit for very long, and I missed out on someone wonderful. My brother knew better. He was her very good friend. We think that we are the center of the universe, but the truth is... we need to circle the ones we love for as long as they're here. We need to hold them close, because no matter how far we travel, they are the ones who hold us in place. It's gravity, and without it, we'd just all float away from each other. We are not kings at all. We are just tiny little specs. My name is Riley Matthews from Greenwich Village, New York City, the United States of America, the continent of North America, the western atmosphere, the Earth, the Solar System, the universe, the mind of God. That's from "Our Town", my father's favorite play. Just for a moment, we're all together. Let's really look at one another. Good night, Mrs. Svorski.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets True Maya (#3.7)" (2016)
Riley Matthews: [to Maya] Explode! If you're going to explode, explode! Just do it, I can't wait. Explode!
[Farkle fakes exploding]
Maya Hart: What are you doing?
Lucas Friar: [in a bad British accent] Mount Farkleuvius has awoken in all its bubbling glow!
Farkle Minkus: What is that?
Lucas Friar: That is my fancy British guy, Mortimer.
Farkle Minkus: Sounds like you're eating meat loaf.
Lucas Friar: Meat loaf!

Lucas Friar: Maya, I've been down this road. Forget it. I missed a whole year of school because I thought I had to be something. That doesn't get you anywhere.
Maya Hart: Yeah, and now you say "please" and "thank you," and what does that get you?
Riley Matthews: It gets me to like him. Do you still like him?
Maya Hart: I don't know what I like anymore.
Farkle Minkus: Whoa.
Maya Hart: [lifts Farkle up by his shirt collar] No "whoa!" No "whoa" while I'm figuring things out.
[Farkle kisses her nose]
Maya Hart: Whoa.
Farkle Minkus: We're getting older. Things are gonna be more unpredictable.
Maya Hart: I'm telling Smackle.
Farkle Minkus: *I'm* telling Smackle!

Farkle Minkus: The soil from volcanoes grows the most beautiful flowers.
Lucas Friar: And deep down, Maya is beautiful.
Riley Matthews: Okay, calm down.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels Goes to Washington (#2.9)" (2015)
Lucas Friar: Why don't you elect people who care enough to make things better?
Cory Matthews: I like to think I do every time I vote. But the truth is, I'm not responsible for the quality of people running for office.
Riley Matthews: How are these people even chosen?
Cory Matthews: Well, the parties choose the best candidates they can come up with.
[Eric bursts into the room, then pauses to catch his breath]
Eric Matthews: I am running for senator of the great state of New York, and I need your votes!
Riley Matthews: Kids don't vote.
Eric Matthews: Then, aww.
Cory Matthews: Everybody close your books, it's the end of the world.
Eric Matthews: I'm really dizzy. I've done this in every classroom!

Eric Matthews: They played me. I'm just supposed to lose.
Tommy: Supposed to.
Riley Matthews: Like Kennedy was.
Maya Hart: Or Nixon.
Eric Matthews: Yeah, but those guys weren't real!

Farkle Minkus: Maybe we do have a voice.
Riley Matthews: So what do you wanna say, Robot?
Farkle Minkus: [to all his friends] You, me, Earth... Let's do this thing.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Belief (#2.24)" (2015)
[first lines]
Riley Matthews: You know why it's a great day?
Maya Hart: For you? Because it's a day.

Farkle Minkus: I think Joan of Arc had a screw loose.
Maya Hart: Yeah. She was just a goofball teenage girl that just wanted to show what she thought about things.
Farkle Minkus: Sounds like someone we know. Sounds like deep down, you admire her.
Maya Hart: No... I don't admire her, I don't miss her, and I am quite enjoying my me time.
[slight pause]
Maya Hart: I miss her... I love her... What'd you do to me, Farkle?
[stands up]
Farkle Minkus: Where are you going?
Maya Hart: To the airport! You ruined my whole vacation!
[fakes being on an airplane, and then at the 'airport', she sees Riley holding up a sign that says her name followed by a heart. They squeal and hug each other]
Maya Hart: Hi, Peaches, you're back! What'd you bring me?
Maya Hart: Nothing. Where's my dinner?
[Riley picks up her phone, and they take a selfie]
Riley Matthews: Oh, that's not good. Whaaat?

Maya Hart: [Riley and Maya are sitting in the bay window in Riley's room] I said a prayer last night.
Riley Matthews: Can I say, "Yay"?
Maya Hart: It was real quiet. I was alone in my bedroom looking out my window. All those people in all those buildings, I just... I wanted them to be taken care of.
Riley Matthews: I love you.
Maya Hart: You were in my prayer last night, too, and my mom.
Riley Matthews: Ooh, what did you pray for me? No, no, don't tell me, that's between you...
Maya Hart: I want you to have an endless supply of great days.
Riley Matthews: Thank you. What did you pray for yourself?
Maya Hart: [in an "I'm not important" sort of tone] Me? Nothing. I would never bug Him about me.
Riley Matthews: Gee. I always bug him about me.
[Riley is silent for a few seconds]
Riley Matthews: I like what you believe, Maya.
Maya Hart: I know.
Riley Matthews: [leans head on Maya's shoulder] I will always have a lot to learn.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Creativity (#2.14)" (2015)
Riley Matthews, Maya Hart, Lucas Friar, Farkle Minkus, Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [singing] Bomp, bomp, bomp Ba, da, da Bomp, bomp, bomp Ba, da, da Bomp, bomp, bomp Ba, da, da Bomp, bomp, bomp Ba, da, da Bomp, bomp, bomp Ba, da, da
[Continued throughout the following]
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [singing] Oh, Mr. Friar.
Lucas Friar: [singing] Yes, Mr. Babineaux?
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [singing] I like this room.
Lucas Friar: [singing] This is a nice room.
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: [singing] So what do we do to a room if we want to kill the...
Lucas Friar: [singing] A-R-T-S, Arts?
Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux: We do this.
[Takes down two paintings]

Riley Matthews: Fifty million purple cats!


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets the New World (#2.2)" (2015)
Cory Matthews: Riley, what is going on here?
Maya Hart: Farkle kissed my hand!
Cory Matthews: [to Farkle] You did?
Farkle Minkus: It was glorious.
Maya Hart: It was. I went home and questioned everything.
Cory Matthews: [to Riley] Okay. And where were you while all this hand-kissing was going on?
Riley Matthews: Nowhere with no one doing nothing with nobody!
[Cory looks at her weirdly for a moment, before he turns to Lucas, now with a murder gaze on his face. Lucas locks eyes with him and smiles for a second before quickly getting up, climbing over desks to run out of the classroom]

Riley Matthews: Hey! Lucas and I are friends. That's what we are, that's what we've always been. And we are not going to hurt that because you guys want us to be something we're not. So go back to your own lives, because nobody is moving too fast.
[Farkle and Maya come in wearing wedding outfits]
Maya Hart: 'Sup?
[throws the flower bouquet to Riley before she and Farkle walk out of the frame again]


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Sneak Attack (#1.3)" (2014)
Lucas Friar: Hey, Riley! Missy invited me to see a movie with her.
Missy Bradford: I think she's aware of that, Lucas. No need to make her feel worse.
Lucas Friar: And I was wondering if maybe you guys would like to come along with us?
Riley Matthews: You want us?
Missy Bradford: Ugh! I'm sorry, Lucas, that wasn't the invitation.
Lucas Friar: Oh! Well, then... I'm sorry, Missy, but I can't go.
Missy Bradford: What are you talking about? Nobody's ever turned me down in my life!
Lucas Friar: Well, see... These are my friends. And I don't like doing anything without my friends. Right, Riley?
Riley Matthews: Yeah... Right.
Lucas Friar: Now, I certainly appreciate you wanting me to take care of you during a scary movie, and you showing me your leg and all, but... back here in the seventh grade, I think maybe we'd have more fun just hanging out together.
Maya Hart: Boop.

Riley Matthews: You know what the easiest thing about having friends is?
Lucas Friar: What?
Riley Matthews: Sometimes all you have to do is trust them.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Crazy Hat (#1.10)" (2014)
[last lines]
Lucas Friar: Riley, if it's at all possible, I'd like to help out with your company.
Riley Matthews: Aw, you're as sweet as sugar.
[whispers something in Maya's ear, then leaves]
Maya Hart: [turns to Lucas] Miss Matthews says you're fired. Huh-hurr!
[Maya leaves as well]
Lucas Friar: [beat] Yeah, I had that comin'.

Farkle Minkus: Enjoy the taste of success, Riley. It's sweet.
Riley Matthews: Not to me. I have a very bitter taste in my mouth.
Maya Hart: You must have eaten one of ours.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Game Night (#1.17)" (2015)
Cory Matthews: Four, five, six, and as usual I choose the fatherhood path. Bing, bing, bing, bing. And the pink square means I get a daughter.
[picks up the card]
Lucas Friar: Actually, sir, Farkle and I already own that square.
Cory Matthews: So?
Lucas Friar: So, your daughter's ours.
[Topanga looks a little puzzled by the word choices, while Riley is over the moon by that statement]
Cory Matthews: Excuse me?
Riley Matthews: Let him talk.
Lucas Friar: According to the game, we get your daughter.
[Riley jumps up from her seat to run over to Lucas, but is held back by Topanga]
Cory Matthews: Josh!
Joshua Matthews: She's not Riley Matthews anymore, my brother. She's now Mrs. Dr. Howdy Turtleneck!
[Lucas holds out his hand to receive the card. Cory puts the card there, but doesn't let go of it]
Lucas Friar: Uh, sir, you're holdin' on a little tight.
Farkle Minkus: You really need to let go, sir.
[the card snaps in two so they each hold on to one half]
Cory Matthews: [completely serious] You killed my daughter!

Cory Matthews: Someone has to get a 12. Anything but a 12. Nobody throw a 12.
Riley Matthews: [throws the dice] 12!
Lucas Friar: Oh, thank goodness, it's over!
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?
Riley Matthews: Yeah, I want to be like you.
Topanga Matthews: You do?
Riley Matthews: A killer shark who always wins?
Topanga Matthews: That is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard!
Riley Matthews: So tonight, let's find out what happens when you play the Long Game.
Lucas Friar: I'm never gonna see my mama again.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Smackle (#1.8)" (2014)
Topanga Matthews: Auggie, I assumed you guys broke up!
Riley Matthews: Oh, Mom, you should never assume. Didn't Dad teach you that?
Maya Hart: Yeah, don't you get the home versions of these lessons? You're married to the guy.
Topanga Matthews: Oh, of course I do! There's just so many of them.
[pauses briefly, then looks terrified]
Topanga Matthews: Oh no, I married Feeny!

Farkle Minkus: The nation of Troy was charmed by a beautiful wooden horse. They neglected it considering what was inside. And they lost everything, because of outer beauty. Don't be fooled by a pretty wrapper. I mean, who keeps the wrapping paper?
Riley Matthews: I wear ribbons.
Farkle Minkus: Okay... And our concluding statement will be made by Lucas Friar.
Lucas Friar: There can be absolutely no debate that the quest for outer beauty at the expense of one's inner self is the road of personal destruction. People make assumptions. I've been labelled a jock and a cowboy. And this is from my friends. But here is a little secret: I like school, and I do pretty well. You might look at me and assume, "baseball player." I look at me, and I know, "I better get good grades." Because what's on the inside has to be more important than what's on the outside. To get into a good college and into a good life. Because beauty is not skin deep. Thank you.
Smackle: [in "Valley girl" accent] Oh my gosh, I'm like so internally unprepared and scared.
Academic Bottom Half: We finally got her.
Smackle: Maybe that's what you would assume I would say, considering the effort I've put into my appearance.
Academic Top Half: Uh-oh.
Smackle: I'm here to argue today that beauty actually is "skin deep." So I've done some research, and I've learned that it is. When you get compliments from people who don't ordinarily compliment you. When people look at you differently. Packaging does matter. I wasn't pretty, then I was. This is a world where "pretty" seems better somehow. Which is too bad, but it's not debatable. However, I also learned that if you get swept up about what you are on the outside, you can lose who you are on the inside. Even though it is easy to be fooled by the beauty of the Trojan Horse, its real power comes from the army within. Intelligence, compassion, integrity, courage. That army is the real you. No matter what you look like. So, even though beauty may be skin deep, beauty is nowhere near as important as the army inside. And I'll try not to forget that.
[she puts on her glasses]
Smackle: Wow, look at all of you. You're all very deeply beautiful. Especially you, Farkle. Thank you.


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Friendship (#1.14)" (2014)
Lucas Friar: Thank you for the video. That wasn't what I expected to see.
Riley Matthews: No more going home for the weekends?
Lucas Friar: [pause] I am home.

Lucas Friar: Maya, I'd like you to be my Secretary of State.
Maya Hart: I'm nobody's secretary, Ranger Rick.
Brandon: Hey, Hart.
Maya Hart: What?
Brandon: The Secretary of State is the president's ambassador for the world. It means he thinks highly of you. It also means he's trying to get you out of the country.
Riley Matthews: Wait a minute. What about me?
Lucas Friar: You? What about you?
Riley Matthews: What am I to you?
Lucas Friar: What are you to me?
[Lucas whistles, and Riley's horse/"unicorn" comes into the room. Lucas climbs onto it, and he helps Riley up so she can sit behind him. He puts a princess crown on her head]
Lucas Friar: To me, you are a princess.
Riley Matthews: Look at us.
[rests her head on his back while they ride around the room]


"Girl Meets World: Girl Meets Flaws (#1.13)" (2014)
Lucas Friar: You were the one who did this to Farkle? Why would you do that to a guy like him?
Billy Ross: I don't know. 'Cause he's a guy like him. You wanna let me go now?
[Lucas doesn't let go of his grip]
Lucas Friar: You are the nothing, Billy!
Maya Hart: Lucas! Don't.
Lucas Friar: I thought this was what you wanted, Maya.
Billy Ross: What? She wanted you to pop me, Mr. Perfect? Well, I don't think that's what he's gonna do.
Lucas Friar: [grins] Yeah!
[remembers he is mad at Billy]
Lucas Friar: No, that's what I'm gonna do!
Maya Hart: [climbs onto Lucas' back] No! That's what he wants. He wants you to be like him.
Billy Ross: Ah... You see, Lucas is like me. Living on a cloud of awesomeness, remember? Handshake?
Lucas Friar: I don't like you like this. This isn't the Billy I know. And I wanna know why, and I wanna know now. And would you get off my back?
[Maya finally gets off Lucas' back]
