Matt's Romantic Moment
21 October 2007 | by (Richardson, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is the last fun episode, before the last two serious episodes (incliding the series finale).

Most BMW fans think this episode was a waste, but I disagree.

After having a quarrel with Cory, Topanga decides to clean out the closet, where she discovers a time continuum vortex. She gets pulled in and lands in a 1940's café (Rory's Shangri-La) in which it now goes to black and white.

There, Topanga meets the patrons of the café (played by the cast) and tries to remember who she really is.

But Matthew Lawrence (Wee Hawkin Willie, piano player) takes the cake in this episode, when he started singing "This Dame". A friend of mine thought he had a romantic singing voice (which I agree). Bravo, Matt!
