In episode 119, "Kid Gloves", we see Cory scuba diving in the school pool from his point of view, and then come up to the surface to see Mr. Feeny looking down on him. This mimicks a scene in The Graduate (1967) in which Dustin Hoffman's character comes up from scuba diving to see his father looking down on him who, like Mr. Feeny, is also played by William Daniels.

It's a show about Growing Up (and the stupid and surreal things in between)
Boy Meets World is one of those shows that you remember 20 years after it's cancellation. The great thing about this show was that it got funnier as it grew. The cast actually grew up nicely and matured (well Eric de-evolved into a brainless twit) but for the most part, THe Matthews and all of their friends had a nice run. One of my favorite things about the show is Mr.Feeny, yes Feh, eh, eh, enny! The voice of KITT from Knightrider reveals himself to be a sarcastic and funny actor who can get a moral past any situation. On a negitive note, the show got way too many characters, Jack (Shawns brother) is an exception, but Angella was brought in to get a cheap hold of the tokken black girl. So I say a fond farewell to Cory Matthews and all of his dilemmas into the abyss that is TV syndication.
