Vanaf seizoen 5 verandert de show drastisch. Steeds meer gaat de nadruk liggen op de vriendengroep van Cory en Eric en raken de familie s meer buiten beeld. De serie krijgt meer het karakter van een zelfparodie. De schrijvers spotten met plotgaten en de fouten in de continuïteit in de serie en ze steken de draak met het format van de serie. Veel afleveringen worden parodieën op recente films en televisieshows. Eric wordt geleidelijk aan steeds springeriger en drukker en steeds een beetje dommer.
Aan het einde van seizoen 5 heeft Topanga Cory een aanzoek gedaan, wat hij graag accepteert. Als ze in seizoen 6 op verzet stuiten bij Alan en Amy, besluiten ze stiekem te willen trouwen, maar op het laatste moment krijgen ze bedenkingen en gaat het niet door. Ze blijven voorlopig verloofd. Feeny kondigt aan dat hij met pensioen gaat en verhuist naar Wyoming, wat vooral Eric erg zwaar valt. When Cory and Topanga begin their relationship, many women seem to be attracted to Cory, which Shawn explains as girls being attracted to men who are off the market.
In the past, Cory has kissed other women while with Topanga; Lauren Linda Cardellini , whom Cory develops an affectionate bond with at a ski resort, led to him being suffered indecision between the two women and break up with Topanga for a while until they reconcile, and a college girl almost had sex with him once. By the end of the series, Cory, Topanga, and their friends eventually left Philadelphia for an internship that Topanga got with a law firm in New York City , and by the time of the events of Girl Meets World , Cory has had two children with Topanga, a daughter named Riley plus a son named Auggie.
Cory is, at this point in his life, a seventh-grade history teacher and his daughter is also in his class. In this spin-off series, Cory, who is now matured and experienced, plays the similar role as his father Alan and George Feeny had; mentoring his children and their friends about life, while still learning his craft as a young teacher akin to Jonathan Turner. George Feeny William Daniels Throughout the series, Feeny tries his best to guide young Cory, Shawn, and their friends as they encounter problems in their lives on their road to adulthood.
He first appears on the show as their grade-school teacher. He eventually becomes their principal, and lastly college professor teaching such diverse courses as archaeology , English literature , and quantum physics. Cory mentions more than once that Feeny is the only teacher he has ever had since kindergarten.
Later on in the show, Mr. Feeny becomes the mentor and idol of Eric Matthews. Feeny is a Boston native and enjoys gardening. He delivers the final line of Boy Meets World dialogue in the series finale, directed to an empty classroom just vacated by his beloved students: Feeny was once married to a woman named Lillian, who died before the series began.
Although Feeny had dated another teacher named Elizabeth from Boston off-screen for 15 years, a conversation with Eric made him to realize that, despite that he and his romantic partner each believed that they are not married because of their careers; they simply do not love each other.
Elsewhere , whom he finds success after his relationship with Elizabeth and competition with Dean Bolander's ex-husband Dr. Curtis Kincaid Francis X. McCarthy for her affection.
He makes a brief cameo at the end of the Girl Meets World pilot episode as a figment of Cory's imagination, telling him, "Well done, Mr. Matthews", and Topanga likens Cory to him in a later episode. During the earlier years of the show, Amy was a real estate agent and eventually became an art gallery worker toward the end of the show. Amy often plays counterpoint to Alan in giving their children discipline and guidance.
In dealing with Eric, she always discourages "babying" him, whereas several episodes involving Cory see a much more gentle and motherly Amy. He began the show as a suave, popular young man, who constantly went out on dates. He was originally portrayed as the stereotypical elder brother. Eric's character changed mid-series from preppy elder brother to "crazy, moronic brother". During the fourth season, Eric takes a year off from school when he doesn't get into a college of his choice.
Eric often plays off his hero and mentor, Mr. Though Eric and Feeny are not originally seen as having a close relationship, the two develop a bond, that—at least in Eric's mind—is one of love. It was even implied once that Eric likes to tell people such as Rachel that Feeny is his grandfather.
This culminates at the end of the fifth season when Eric sings a rousing of "To Sir, With Love" at Cory's high school graduation. Eric is also the creator of the "Feeny call", and even makes a talking doll for Feeny to "make the call", so Feeny will not miss him when he moves to New York with the others.
Eric is actually highly intelligent, and Feeny mentions that Eric can get passing grades in his sleep in fact, he once did. He compares this to Cory who, though lacking Eric's natural intelligence, makes up for it by being hard-working when he wants to be, and thus succeeds. Eric, on the other hand, is too lazy and immature to be anything but a ridiculous "goof-off", to the annoyance of his family and Mr.
Feeny, in addition lacking confidence to his own capability to succeed academically. In Girl Meets World , Cory mentions that Eric is the only person he knows who can do the impossible, and later Jack Hunter asks if he's still an "idiot genius".
During the later years, storylines involving Eric became stranger and wackier, often bending the rules of reality itself, such as an episode where Eric continually tries to sneak up on Topanga by using many disguises and crazy situations. The change from a girl-crazy cool-conscious teenager the first half of the series to a scatter-brained odd-ball the second half of the series was a drastic change.
Eric often provides comic relief in tough situations throughout the series. It is hinted that he is a fan of the raunchy animated comedy South Park , as he has made references to the program, by doing voice impressions of Cartman and other South Park characters on different occasions.
On the contrary, Eric has appeared sensitive when it comes to matters of family and friends, as in the episode "Brotherly Shove", where Eric feels rejected by Cory when he was not asked to help clean out the garage, which was filled with memories from their childhood. Also, in the episodes "The War" and "Seven the Hard Way", the audience realizes that Eric finds friendship a serious matter and values it more than anything, apparent in his quote, "Lose one friend, lose all friends.
Upon graduating college in the series finale, Eric decides to get a new lease on life, and in doing so: During the interim between the events of Boy Meets World and the sequel series Girl Meets World , Eric moves upstate , and is elected mayor of [the fictional] St.
Upidtown, on the Quebec border. By his own admission, he has no understanding whatsoever of the town's political problems, but the electorate trust him because of his handling of their personal issues. Topanga intentionally mispronounces the municipality's name by disregarding the period and space, thus rendering it "Stupidtown". Initially, Friedle declined to reprise his role in the sequel series Girl Meets World , but later became a recurring character; Eric made his initial appearance in the season 2 episode "Girl Meets Mr.
Squirrels"; when Cory's daughter Riley and her best friend Maya have a major argument that threatens to destroy their friendship, Eric is called in by Cory to mediate and he successfully reconciles the girls. Early plans for the sequel had Eric's son, Troy, being a prominent part of the cast; the role of the teenage relative is instead filled by Cory and Eric's youngest brother, Joshua now portrayed by Uriah Shelton.
At the end of "Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels", a TV news anchor reports a major political blunder by Jefferson Davis Graham, a six-term Senator from New York , wrecking his chances of re-election, unless he can find someone even more incompetent to run against him, and the anchor hints at the prospective opponent by showing a picture of Eric in his guru garb.
In the later episode "Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels Goes To Washington", Eric is chosen to run in the upcoming senatorial election against the incumbent Graham, but when it is revealed that Eric was recruited by Graham's own political advisor in an attempt to get Graham back in good graces with the electorate, Eric is crushed, but Riley and Maya, using a giant bowl of Cocoa Puffs , encourage him to get back in the race.
During the televised senatorial debate, the public gets a first-hand opportunity to compare Eric's innate goodness against Graham's incompetence, and Eric goes on to win the election.
He gets strong praise and recommendation from a blogger named T. He had been in five different schools before the age of Shawn has been the best friend of Cory Matthews for nearly their whole lives, since the two met when Cory fell into an animal pen at a zoo and Shawn came to his rescue.
Shawn has a personality almost opposite Cory's; Shawn takes more risks and has more of a bad boy image. Their personality differences do cause problems between the two a few times, but these problems never destroy their friendship.
Later seasons depict the relationship between Cory and Shawn as being so intimate that it causes Topanga to be jealous, and several innuendos are made referencing the subconscious homoerotic nature of their friendship. In the first season of Boy Meets World, not much is known about Shawn except that he is Cory's best friend.
In season two and thereafter, the show begins to focus on Shawn's life as well. In the beginning, Shawn lives with both his parents, Chet and Virna Hunter. One day, Virna runs off with the trailer and Shawn is left under the care of the Matthews family while Chet chases after his wife.
When the Matthews find out that Chet will not be returning for a while, Jonathan Turner , a teacher at John Adams High School, offers to take care of Shawn and eventually to become his legal guardian. About a year later, Chet comes back and Virna temporarily rejoins her family before eventually taking off again. Shawn goes through several ups and downs throughout the show, including briefly joining a cult and nearly succumbing to alcoholism , similar to his father.
In a later season, Shawn's half-brother Jack arrives in town for college. Shawn moves in with Jack and Eric Matthews, Cory's older brother, leaving Chet free to take off again. However, on a trip back to town, during which Chet attempts to reconcile with Shawn and promises to finally stay, Chet dies of a heart attack.
In later seasons, Shawn is able to talk to Chet as a ghost. During the final episodes of the series, Shawn discovers that Virna is not his biological mother when she sends him a letter after Chet's death. Apparently, Chet was left to take care of Shawn after his biological mother, who was actually a stripper , left shortly after his birth. Despite the Matthews family's offer to legally adopt Shawn after he discovers this, Shawn declines, declaring that he still has Jack as family and he still needs to take care of the Hunter clan.
Shawn is a ladies' man, a trait which Cory is constantly envious of. However, Shawn is jealous of Cory's close, long-term relationship with Topanga. Later in the series, Shawn falls in love with a girl named Angela. They have a tempestuous relationship, but genuinely care for each other. Angela eventually leaves as well, to travel with her military father.
In the episode "Fraternity Row" it is revealed that during high school Shawn was challenged in writing, but "Poetic License: An Ode to Holden Caulfield", reveals that during college he has improved significantly and additionally has had a lifelong affinity for poetry. He is also a skilled photographer, and nearly chooses a job at a glamour magazine company over college. Revealed during Girl Meets World , however, Shawn left New York the day of the birth of Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley, ultimately making a name for himself as a world-traveling writer and photographer.
When he returns to the city, he forms a bond with Riley's best friend Maya, sharing a similar childhood upbringing and both coming from broken homes. He also forms a bond with Maya's mother Katy, who shares a similar feeling of abandonment due to her husband and Maya's father's leaving. By the second season, Riley is hopeful that Shawn will become Katy's husband and Maya's father, although Shawn still has unresolved feelings for Angela.
Angela returns with news that she has since married a military man, like her now-deceased father, and wants advice on whether she'd be a good mother or not, which she insists can only come from Shawn. Shawn encourages her to be a mother, and Angela encourages Shawn to pursue a relationship with Katy. Shawn and Katy eventually date and get married, and Shawn becomes a father figure to Maya. After directing two first-season episodes of Girl Meets World , Rider Strong has become a fixture behind the scenes, while also making appearances in a recurring role.
Stuart Minkus or simply just Minkus Lee Norris was the resident genius and nerd in Cory's sixth grade class. During his time on the show, he was shown as being in love with Topanga, and was often made fun of by Cory and Shawn. Everyone referred to him as simply "Minkus", except Topanga and Mr.
Before Topanga's character changes, he was the one constantly obsessed with grades and academic achievements. Minkus was on the show from —, reappearing in the "Graduation" episode in , with Minkus and Topanga now portrayed as bitter rivals. The reason given for his absence was that his classes were on the other side of the school all along. Despite his brief tenure on Boy Meets World , Stuart appears as a major recurring character in the sequel Girl Meets World , with Norris reprising his role.
He makes his first appearance the episode "Girl Meets Maya's Mother" where he is revealed to be the doppelganger father of Farkle, one of Riley Matthews' best friends. He brags to Cory and Topanga that he has become a wealthy businessman who owns a helicopter. Despite being a married man, Stuart still longs for Topanga. His wife and Farkle's mother, Jennifer Kristanna Loken an ex-girlfriend of Shawn Hunter makes her first appearance in the second season.
Jennifer appeared as the main antagonist in two episodes of Boy Meets World. In the updated series she is shown to be a much nicer, doting parent. She inexplicably disappeared after the show's second season and reappeared midway through the following season played by a different actress.
In the episode of her return, a joke is made about her long absence. Upon her reappearance, she says, "That was the longest timeout I ever had! A joke is even made about the two, with Cory and Topanga's son, Auggie being frightened when he is comforted by both. Alan, as the father of the Matthews children, provides guidance to his children.
He has a quick temper, though when it shows up, usually through consultation with his wife, he often apologizes afterwards for words spoken in anger. In some later episodes, Alan does not support Eric in all of his ventures, and Amy, in turn, tells Alan that his coddling of Eric is the reason Eric has turned out the way he is.
Alan was also somewhat of a "father figure" for Shawn Hunter. He explained to Cory in the first season that he saw a lot of his younger self in Shawn, and encouraged Cory to be there to help Shawn through his tough life.
While there were times when he thought that Shawn was too much of a negative influence, such as when Cory and Shawn were arrested for underage drinking, he always cared about Shawn's well-being, even stating in the fourth season that he would "kill to protect Shawn from con men like you" to a cult leader who was trying to take advantage of Shawn's feelings of isolation.
