For Love and Apartments - S7-E2

Other mistake: When Cory is trying to get Topanga's parents to reconcile, Topanga's mother mentions to her ex-husband about the "beautiful child they've made." Given that she says "child" in the singular, this can only refer to Topanga. However, the season 1 episode She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not established that Topanga had an older sister named Nebula. So the mistake is that either the show is acting like a character that was firmly established never existed, or Topanga's mother doesn't realise she has at least two children. (00:15:32)

For Love and Apartments - S7-E2

Character mistake: When Shawn is scolding Topanga for getting angry with Cory for travelling to Pittsburgh to try to get her parents back together, he mentions that he travelled a hundred miles to do so. Philadelphia is roughly 300 miles from Pittsburgh. Travelling only 100 miles westward from Philadelphia would barely get them past Hershey. (00:17:53)

No Such Thing as a Sure Thing - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: When the family is eating dinner, throughout the scene you can see Jack dabbing his fork into his mashed potatoes and raising the fork to his mouth with little to no potatoes on it in order to give the illusion that he is eating. (00:03:57 - 00:05:05)

You Light Up My Union - S7-E5

Revealing mistake: When Eric tells Cory and Shawn that the hot chocolates were $4, Cory looks up at the prices and says "that's the retail price." As the scene and the rest of the episode go on, if you pay close attention to the sign that has all the prices, hot chocolate is not an item.

They're Killing Us - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: When Eric picks up Cory to show him the "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow" dance, Cory screams that Eric is going to knock over the candles, upon which one of the candles on the desk is knocked over and sets fire to the curtains. If you look closely, neither Eric or Cory bump any of the candles nor the desk they are on, the candle just tips over on its own, suggesting an off-screen crew member used wire or string to pull the candle down.

They're Killing Us - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: When Morgan is telling Topanga that she wouldn't use her bridesmaid's dress to wipe her ass, she gets cut off by Alan who covers her mouth with his left hand and then begins dragging her out of the reception hall. When the shot changes, he is covering her mouth with his right hand. (00:17:22)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This was definitely done for comedic effect. Note that the firemen in both scenes where Eric starts a fire don't even make the effort to usher bystanders out of the area to safety, and one of them slowly and needlessly chops away at doors with his axe.

The Honeymooners - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When the voice on the intercom is saying "Paging Dr. Chocolate Pudding," Cory's right hand is on Topanga's right arm, and her hands are in her lap. When the shot changes, both of his hands are suddenly resting on his stomach, and her right hand is suddenly resting on his left leg. (00:07:23)

The Honeymooners - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When the spider is walking on Eric, it makes it past his fingers and has some legs on his wrist before the shot changes. In the next shot, the spider is still walking on his fingers. (00:16:17)

The Honeymoon is Over - S7-E9

Factual error: When Cory and Topanga first enter their new couples dorm, they discover it to be a dump. The entire dorm is filthy, cabinets are falling apart, there are large bugs crawling on the floor, and there is no clean running water. Student housing laws would require the university to restore the dorm to liveable conditions before any student could move in. If the health department saw the conditions of the room, the university would undoubtedly be fined for failing to take corrective action. (00:07:45 - 00:10:36)

The Honeymoon is Over - S7-E9

Character mistake: At one point Cory is telling Shawn about how he can't protect Topanga and they've only been married for one week. But they spent their wedding night in jail, 12 days on their honeymoon and 1 night in their new apartment. So actually the couple have been married for 2 weeks.

What A Drag! - S7-E11

Plot hole: At the beginning of the episode, Eric and Jack call the cops on Luther for planning an illegal rave at the college, but the cops let him go because he had not started the rave. He still broke into the student union building, and therefore should have still been arrested. He even threatens Eric and Jack afterwards right in front of the cops, and they do nothing about it. (00:00:20 - 00:02:10)

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!

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.
