Trivia: According to Adam Scott, during a season 2 wrap party, he witnessed Rider Strong hugging Ethan Suplee and Blake Soper. Scott then went over and hugged Strong, which caused Strong to aggressively shove Scott away and then take off in the other direction. Scott kept this to himself for nearly 30 years, finally revealing it during his appearance on the Pod Meets World podcast. Strong, Soper and Suplee have no recollection of the incident. The aforementioned individuals have speculated that either Suplee or Soper, who were known to be pranksters on-set, may have grabbed Strong's butt during the hug and caused him to think Scott did it.

Trivia: Blake Soper and Ethan Suplee wrote and pitched a Catcher in the Rye-inspired script to producer Michael Jacobs. He told them they wouldn't buy the script, but offered them contracts to be regular cast members moving forward. They subsequently never heard from him nor appeared on the show again. Suplee admitted to having a drug problem at the time, and thinks that may have been the reason he didn't return.

More quotes from Boy Meets World

Answer: That was what I hope was only a phase of the way things were in California at that time. Many kids who had parents who liked to be modern and be friends more than parents to their kids had them call them by their first names.


Answer: This was part of Topanga's weird phase. She specifically mentions in one episode that addressing her father as "Dad" would make it hard to tell him apart from the other dads in the world.
