Correction: Things like that happen in real life all the time. Especially in the dark. It's not at all unrealistic for Cory to have missed Mr. Feeny due to the fact that he wasn't looking for him. I recently walked right past a friend I was on my way to visit, purely because she wasn't where I was expecting her to be.

Feeny was sitting less than 5 feet away from where the ball landed and also would have been in Cory's field of view based on where the ball ended up and Feeny's position relative to it. The mistake is valid.

As the previous user mentioned above; ridiculous as it may appear to an audience watching, this happens a lot in real life. I myself missed my cousin who walked right past me only a foot in front of me and that was in broad daylight when I was actively looking for her. If this kind of thing happens in real life, it can easily happen with the character. Especially since it was night-time and Cory was not expecting Feeny to be there.

Quiz Show - S4-E19

Corrected entry: When Topanga says "I would really appreciate it if you would stop pushing the buzzer just because you like the sound" a mic is seen above Cory's head.

Correction: This portion of the episode takes place on a televised game show. Seeing microphones or other studio equipment wouldn't necessarily be a mistake.

Correction: In "I Dream of Feeny" Shawn said "I hear he hasn't missed a day since WWI" That was not a literal statement considering the fact that Mr. Feeny couldn't have been in school during WWI and Shawn couldn't know if he missed in 1961 because he wasn't born yet. It was just a joke.

Correction: This doesn't mean that Mr. Feeny couldn't have taught 6th grade for years before Corey and the others started school. He is obviously old enough to have been teaching for years before they were even born.

Correction: The coach told him during the school day. Corey didn't have a chance to tell his family, so when he got home, his family had already left for the game.

Correction: You should see equipment. This scene/episode is a parody of "The Truman Show," and Eric has placed equipment all over his apartment for the purpose of filming and toying with his roommates, including a rain machine.

Danger Boy - S2-E16

Corrected entry: Cory tries to stand up and get out of the ride while it is starting, but in reality there would have been a lock on the safety bar before the ride starts.

Correction: Considering the fact that it was a ride so unsafe that Mr. Feeny and Cory actually fell out of the car and ended up in the opposite seats by the end of it, it sounds like the bars are not safe in general. Therefore, it's no wonder there were not safety locks on them.

The Double Lie - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode, Alan says Eric was 4 in 1978. That would mean that Eric was 20 in 1994. But Eric is driving in 1993 at 16.

Correction: In this episode (s3e2) Alan says he joined the parent club in 1978, meaning that is when Eric was born, then he goes on to say his first mistake as a parent was when Eric was 4. He was not saying Eric was 4 in 1978. Eric being born in 1978 would have made him 16 at the time of the episode as he was.

His Answer (1) - S6-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode Shawn claims he heard Topanga propose when actually he wasn't paying ANY attention to them in the previous episode. Instead he was carrying on about graduating. There wasn't really a way that he could have heard them.

Correction: Topanga proposed to Cory before all the other students threw their Graduation caps into the air and started celebrating. Before that, Shawn was simply standing there doing nothing. He could have easily heard them.

Seven the Hard Way (2) - S7-E16

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode, Eric flings the door of the classroom open, runs out and picks up Rachel. He re-enters the classroom carrying her, puts her on the floor and sits on her. When the camera angle changes to a view from where the rest of the gang is sitting, the door of the classroom is shut tight, even though Eric did not close it on the way in.

Correction: The door is slowly closing shut as Eric returns to the classroom, so when after a minute the camera shows the door, this is enough time for the door to close itself.

Correction: Many T.V. shows have a charcter for one episode, nothing intresting or unusual about that.

Correction: If you notice from seasons 2-5 the room next to the phone changes from the boys' room to the girls' and to Mr. Feeny's office.

And the counsellor's office as well.

Show Me the Love - S7-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode, Shawn says that his mom left home when he was 9, but in the early seasons, his mom is still home, and takes off during season 2 or 3, when Shawn is around 14 or so.

Correction: In the episode Angela's Men, in season 7, Shawn tells Angela's father that his mother left him and his father twice. She left when Shawn was nine, then came back and left again.

It's About Time - S7-E7

Corrected entry: If Eric told the hotel that Cory and Topanga were the Peterman's, then how did the band know what song to play when Amy sang her song to Cory, assuming that the Peterman's would not have the same song?

Correction: It's possible that Amy had a moment to talk to someone in the band and ask them to do a certain song, even if it wasn't shown.

Fishing for Virna - S4-E4

Corrected entry: When the 3 kids spill the milk, Chet comes out of a door marked "Custodian" but in earlier episodes that door was marked "Girls" for the Girls bathroom

Correction: Chet does not come out of a door marked "Custodian" in this episode.

Kid Gloves - S1-E19

Corrected entry: Alan tells Cory that he won the gloves for finishing second in his weight class, yet when Cory is on the phone, he says they belong to the second best boxer in the whole Navy.

Correction: Alan said "Second in my weight class in the entire United States Navy." Cory was right.

City Slackers - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Shawn is reading Mr. Feeny's diary, he says that Mr. Feeny called in sick to his class in 1961 to go to the cabin. However, in Seven The Hard Way, at Feeny's retirement party, it says: MR. FEENY BELOVED TEACHER 1964-2006. 1961 is three years before '64

Correction: In "Seven The Hard Way" Mr. Feeny's retirement party was an imaginary thought. It's not likely everything would be correct in an imaginary thought.

Correction: They only show the hallway from one angle. The stairs could be on the other side of the hallway.

On the Fence - S1-E2

Corrected entry: If Shawn lives in a trailer park, and as we later find out, his father has trouble paying the bills, how can he afford an extremely expensive water gun?

Correction: That water gun wasn't really implied to have been expensive, just amazing because it could hold so much water and was so big. Plenty of stores sell water guns that can hold a ton of water and are farely huge and it doesn't even cost over 15 dollars. Plus, it may have been a gift.

Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: I think this is the episode were Shawn and Topanga have to kiss for the movie but when they do Cory says that their kiss had to mean something and that you can't have a kiss without it meaning anything,so how come in an earlier episode when he went to that ski lodge and kissed that girl he kept telling Topanga it didn't mean anything.

Correction: Cory is extremely upset that his best friend kissed his girl friend. Of course he isn't going to bring something up that would make it seem like he was over reacting. He doesn't bring up the kiss at the ski lounge because he doesn't want to make it seem like the kiss Shawn and Topanga shared was fine.

Me and Mr. Joad - S2-E4

Mr. Feeny: I realise that all you 7th-graders are delicate, adolescent flowers, just beginning your high school blooming. And so I say this with utmost sensitivity: take this test, or die!

Janitor Dad - S4-E6

Question: When Chet and Verna are arguing about Chet getting a job, visible in the background is a painting of what I believe is an oak tree on a yellow background. Does anybody know the name and/or artist of this painting? My Grandparents used have a painting similar to it (if not the same one) and it also looks very similar to (and possibly the inspiration for) the cover art for the debut album of the band Days of the New.

Answer: I learned the answer to this one today. It is "Tree of Life" by Garé Barks.
