Fraternity Row - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: If you look in most of the scenes, especially the one where she is throwing the stuff out the window, you can see a wall out of the window, but in the scene where Cory comes back from seeing the lady you can see a dresser out the window.

The Witches of Pennbrook - S5-E5

Plot hole: In this episode Cory takes Topanga on her "first airplane ride". But in season three (episode 66), Topanga had to go Disney World and she obviously took a plane.

Fraternity Row - S5-E4

Factual error: When Shawn has first infiltrated the college philosophy class, the professor begins to resume the class' previous lesson on what he calls "Buridan's paradox," relating a dog caught equidistant between two bowls of food. This paradox in real life is known as "Buridan's ass," and as the name would suggest, concerns a donkey. While the name was probably changed to sound more family friendly, a college philosophy professor would certainly know the proper name and details of said paradox.

Graduation - S5-E24

Audio problem: When Mr. Feeny is reading off the names of all the graduates, you can hear reverb in his voice to indicate that he is speaking into a microphone. The problem is there is no microphone in front of him. You can see Eric holding the microphone next to him and singing into it, with no audio. If that microphone is turned off, then Feeny's voice should not be amplified. If the microphone is on, then we should also hear Eric as he is singing. (00:19:38 - 00:20:56)

Honesty Night - S5-E21

Starry Night - S5-E20

Factual error: When Topanga and Ricky are looking at the Starry Night painting, Topanga reads from her pamphlet and says it mentions Vincent Van Gogh became religious around the time he painted it. Van Gogh grew up in a religious household, with his father being a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, and Vincent himself actually had a desire to become a pastor. On the contrary, however, when he painted Starry Night, although he still believed in an afterlife, he was actually disillusioned with religion.

Heartbreak Cory - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: When Cory is saying to Lauren "Well, today I guess you're stuck with me," he slightly raises his left hand and then sets it back down on his left knee. When the shot changes, his left hand is suddenly resting on the couch cushion between his legs. (00:05:03)

The Eskimo - S5-E13

Factual error: When Shawn and all the other contestants - as well as the radio DJs and onlookers - are standing out in the cold for a chance to win Super Bowl tickets, no-one's breath is visible, nor are any parts of their faces red.

What I Meant To Say - S3-E3

Mr. Williams: I'm here to teach you to find the truth in the media. Because there is a difference between what they say, and what is real.
Mr. Turner: That was very good. Watch this: Hunter, what did he just say?
Shawn: Something about Israel.

Brave New World (2) - S7-E23

Show generally

Question: Topanga said in one episode that she has a weird middle name, did she ever say what it is?

Answer: Topanga's middle name is never specified. Considering her sister's name is Nebula Stop-the-war Lawrence, Topanga's is probably something equally unusual.
