Boy Meets World 5x14 Heartbreak Cory - video dailymotion
Boy Meets World () Leon White in Boy Meets World () William Daniels in Boy Meets World . Matthew Lawrence. Several times throughout the years they mention how Cory and Topanga first met, but it's never the same story. Ben Savage and Matthew Lawrence have a mini Boy Meets World reunion Savage played Corey Matthews on Boy Meets World, while. Boy Meets World is an American television sitcom that chronicles the coming of age events and . In Girl Meets World, Cory mentions that Eric is the only person he knows who can do the impossible, and later Jack Hunter asks .. Jack Hunter (Matthew Lawrence) is Shawn's paternal half-brother, and very different from him.
A brief period of family distress follows, with Amy proclaiming that she will, in turn, "make a major decision that affects the entire family without consulting with him first".
Her character underwent dramatic changes during the course of the series. When she was initially introduced in the first season, first as a guest character and later recurring, she was a hippie vegetarian and somewhat of an outcast, sitting at the table with the other "weird kids".
Even her name was taken from a hippie hangout, Topanga, California. However, once the characters entered high school and Danielle Fishel became a main charactershe became more of a "regular teenage girl", and her beliefs about the environment and other topics were less emphasized. Much was now made of the fact that Topanga was the most attractive and the most popular girl at school, and academically successful. She also cut her trademark long hair in an episode in season 4 while trying to show Cory that true beauty is on the inside.
She grows distant from her parents, whom she once was very close to; by the fourth season. Her relationship with her parents became further apart after their divorce. The series tries to justify this by saying that Cory and Topanga first met as toddlers and became best friends, only to be driven apart as they grew older and Eric pressured Cory to think of girls as "icky".
By the time of the first-season episodes, Cory has apparently completely forgotten about Topanga and knows almost nothing about her. Although Topanga was accepted to Yale Universityshe decided to attend Pennbrook College with Cory and their friends. She proposed to Cory at their high school graduation. They married during their sophomore year during the final seasonafter which the show attempted to put them in stereotypical marriage problem situations.
Shortly after the Boy Meets World finale, Topanga became pregnant and later gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Riley. Several years later, she had a second child, a son named August "Auggie" Matthews.
In addition to raising the family, Topanga continues her pursuit of a career in law and eventually passes the bar exam.
Cory and Topanga's marriage continued in Girl Meets Worldby which point Topanga has become a successful attorney and soon the owner of a local Ukrainian bakeryand Riley is thirteen years old.
It is strongly implied that Topanga's name is the result of a journal entry by her maternal grandmother, Rosie McGee, concerning a chance encounter with a young artist in His more laidback approach to teaching often clashed with Mr. Feeny's more traditional methods, and the students found that they could more easily identify with the hip, Harley -riding Mr. In the second season, Shawn found residence with Mr.
Turner when his dad went on a cross-country search for Shawn's mother Vernaand found in him a friend and mentor. Turner remained on the show until midway through the fourth season, when he was put in the hospital after being involved in an accident.
When Chet Hunter got back, Shawn again lives with his father briefly, until Chet had him live with his half-brother, Jack, as his roommate; thus Jack taking over the guardianship for Shawn from Chet. As homage to the character, the show made a references to him in the last episode of Season 5; when Stuart Minkus returns for a cameo and calls out to an unseen Mr. Turner, indicating that he has recovered from his accident and returned to work.
Turner is also best friends with Eli Williams. Turner later returns as a recurring character in Girl Meets World beginning with the episode "Girl Meets the New Teacher" where it is revealed that after his accident he fell in love with his nurse and married her.
He has also gone on to become the superintendent of New York's public school system. Cory's daughter, Riley, sees him as an uncle figure as he has formed an even closer affinity with the Matthews family than before, visiting their home often.
Though thankful for him being a good educator, Topanga holds a grudge against Turner because he gave her an A- in high school. He made another appearance in the episode "Girl Meets Creativity". He joined the show in season three when his best friend and former college roommate Jonathan Turner got him a job at the school, teaching media arts.
Like Turner, Williams is considered "hip and cool", and can relate easily to the young students. However, being a former journalist at a television station in Philadelphia, he sometimes finds teaching and reaching out to students to be a difficult chore, something that Turner helps him out with. Stories in the third season were written to focus on the friendship between Turner and Williams and the single bachelor life of dating, partying, and socializing that they experience outside of their teaching, showing the life of young adults post-college.
Williams had a starring role throughout the third season, and is last seen in the episode "Brother, Brother". In the DVD commentaries, Michael Jacobs and some of the actors discuss the network pressure during seasons 2 and 3 to bring more young adult characters to the cast. Eli Williams strongly reflects this trend. Growing up in a wealthy stepfamily at New York CityJack has money, works out, and has experienced relatively little difficulty in his life.
Besides Shawn, Jack has at least one maternal half-sister at home. Jack's mother left Chet Hunter with her son due to not being able to cope with her former husband's alcoholism, and eventually she and Chet both remarried after their divorce.
Shawn learned about Jack's existence from his father when he was seven years old, he was happily written to his half-brother in hopes of getting acquainted as brothers. Jack's mother, however, hid Shawn's letters from her son, leaving Shawn to believe that his half-brother turned his back on his paternal family with his mother for years until Jack finds out. Despite of it, Jack and Shawn did meet before the former enrolled to Pennbrook College at some point, but they weren't yet aware of Jack's mother's deception at the time.
Despite Jack resenting his father for his past alcoholism, he also wants to have relationships with him and Shawn, which leads him to choose Pennbrook in hopes of becoming close to them.
Dialogues imply that though Jack has a good relationship with his stepfather, but never as close as Jack would like with his father. Jack's aversion to his family's alcoholism makes him vow never to drink, and tries to save Shawn from it in one episode.
However, despite having been raised by his stepfather, Jack had a gambling problem—a trait he shares with his father, but falls into brief relapse when placing a school bet. When Chet visiting his sons at Pennbrook, he is beginning to reconcile with them before his death, leaving both Jack and Shawn devastated. Chet had Shawn to live with Jack during the latter's senior year in high school, effectively having Jack taking over the guardianship for Shawn from his father and Jonathan Turner until his half-brother's graduation, though Shawn eventually move back in with him later.
Like Eric and Cory Matthews, Jack and Shawn share a comical and somewhat hostile sibling rivalry which ultimately ends with reconciliation; they have acknowledged each other brothers with Jack entering Shawn's life. He became Eric's roommate, and the pair developed a friendship parallel to their siblings'. Jack, along with Eric, pined for Rachel after she moved in with the two, eventually winning this battle once Eric realizes he was competing more for the sake of competing, rather than due to any genuine feelings for Rachel.
The relationship between Jack and Rachel ultimately doesn't work out. Jack's personality was often adapted to the episodic storyline, rather than having his own distinct character.
He once mentions having six percent body fat, though he confides that in high school he was referred to as "Jumbo Jack", much to Eric's amusement. He has joined a corporation looking to buy Eric's vote for a pipeline which would harm the environment. Jack ultimately decides not to go through with the pipeline after Eric reminds him about how simple life was when they were younger, by taking him to a middle school semi-formal dance.
Jack happens to meet Cory's daughter Riley at the dance. Her first appearance, uncredited, was in Season 5, and she became a regular cast member later that season but was only billed in the closing credits with a special "And Starring" credit.
Angela is witty and passionate about causes and people.
She enjoys things for their artistic value. Although she broke up with Shawn during one or two episodes, and once for a longer period in the show's Pennbrook stage, eventually revealing that, like Shawn, Angela also comes from a broken family as her mother left her and her father.
Angela fears that she would hurt Shawn as her mother did to her father. They resolved their issues and became very close, declaring their love for each other. Angela left for Europe with her father to be close to him in the series' second to last episode, therefore she is the only main character absent in the series finale.
There was never a mention of Angela's race over the course of her relationship with Shawn, except for her mentioning a paper she did about "maintaining black identity when you have three very white friends", and commenting that she "has to get some black friends".
Angela later returns in the sequel series Girl Meets World in a guest appearance. Prior to her debut, she is mentioned in the program's season one episode "Girl Meets Master Plan" when Cory and Topanga explain to their daughter Riley, and her friend Maya, how Shawn and Angela met.
It's also revealed that Angela and Shawn never spoke again after she left unwittingly fulfilling her prediction that she would leave Shawn after all. She is similarly referenced in season two's "Girl Meets Pluto". Angela finally makes an appearance in the episode "Girl Meets Hurricane" where she not only reveals to Shawn the tragic news that her father Sgt.
Moore Julius Carry died in a fishing accident, but she has also gotten married to a man in the military much like her father was. Her reason for meeting up with Shawn is to get some advice and council about her fears of becoming a mother out of fear that she may end up like her own. Shawn encourages Angela to start a family with her husband, and experience the joy of being a parent subtly implying how he feels about being a father figure for Maya in the process.
After this, Angela encourages Shawn to pursue a relationship with Katy — Maya's mother — and leaves to go back home. Rachel McGuire[ edit ] Rachel Kimberly McGuire Maitland Ward is the final addition to the main cast, appearing in the sixth and seventh seasons of the series. Rachel is a very sweet, and mature young woman who forms a bond with Jack and Eric almost instantly. She and Jack date for a relatively short period of time, before deciding on being just friends.
Still, it's strongly implied that the two harbor feelings for one another. Prior to moving in with Jack and Eric, she lived down the hall with her Texan boyfriend. She also roomed with Topanga and Angela for a few episodes until she got an on-campus job as a resident assistant, allowing Jack, Eric, and Shawn to get the apartment back. Rachel was the focus of a two episode story-arc in season seven when a prank war goes wrong, leaving Rachel as well as Angela and Jack feeling like the outcast of the gang.
After Eric and Feeny intervene in an effort to save their friendships, the gang realizes the whole thing was petty and make up. In the series finale, she joins the Peace Corps with Jack. Eric reveals that he and Rachel are still close, whereas Jack and Rachel no longer speak. Lauren[ edit ] Lauren Linda Cardelliniis Cory Matthews' potential love interest and archenemy of Topanga Lawrence during Season 5; Cory meets Lauren when he sprained his ankle getting off a bus for a ski trip.
She appeared on two episodes in Season 5 and one episode in Season 6. Cory develops an affectionate bond with Lauren and they had kissed, causing Cory and Topanga to break up for a while. Cory ultimately chooses Topanga after realizing his love for her and ended his potential relationship with Lauren off-screen. Topanga herself also kissed another guy during her separation with Cory, making her realizes that sometimes she and Cory need to endure trials in their relationship to prove whether their love for each other is strong; Cory and Topanga ultimately got back together.
Despite Cory being happy in his relationship with Topanga, one episode reveals that Cory occasionally thinks about Lauren, and she later appears in Cory's dream in a Season 6 episode after he and Topanga got engaged, implying Cory is wondering in his subconscious what life could have been like if he chose Lauren instead.
Lauren is later mentioned in the sequel Girl Meets World and it is revealed in the two-part episode "Girl Meets Ski Lodge" that she too has become a parent. Her teenage son, Evan, appears in the episode as a friendly employee at the Mount Ski Lodge.
However, Evan's relation to Lauren isn't shown until the ending moments of the second part where he innocently tells Cory that his mother says hello. Cory freaks out and runs out of the ski lodge, much to Evan's confusion. Chet Hunter[ edit ] Shawn's father, Chet Hunter Blake Clarkis an on-again, off-again father figure, frequently leaving town for months or even years at a time.
He is a jack-of-all-trades, holding a wide variety of usually low-paying jobs over the course of the series. Shawn originally idolizes his father and thinks himself responsible for his father's frequent departures.
In time, though, he grows angry and resentful at the way his father treats him. Chet's eldest son, Jack, also resents his father for his past alcoholism and subsequent divorce from his mother, but he is looking for an opportunity to reconcile with him, out of hope they can be a family with Shawn.
During his first major departure, Chet leaves Shawn in the care of Alan and Amy Matthews, but this ends quickly and Shawn goes to live with Jonathan Turner instead. He moves back in with his father when Chet returns to town, but at Chet's insistence, moves in with his half-brother Jack and Eric Matthews. When Shawn goes to Pennbrook, Chet goes to Jack's stepfather to ask for money to pay for Shawn's tuition. Chet returns to Philadelphia briefly, prompting a conflict with Shawn, who finally loses patience with his father's inability to stay around.
Chet tells Shawn he always wanted the best for him, and stayed away because he didn't think he was good enough for him. Chet has a heart attack soon after; while in the hospital he and Shawn begin to take steps toward reconciliation when Chet dies from a second heart attack. He acts as a spirit guide for Shawn in the hard times portrayed in the first two episodes, giving him counsel and advice.
His appearance in the series finale is a comical one; in a moment played for laughs as he otherwise proudly watches over his sons, Chet is outraged when he hears Jack deciding to give up his wealth for happiness, but is later proud after knowing that he is joining the Peace Corps. Unlike his other ghost appearances, no one can see or hear him in this scene, so Jack is unaware of Chet's reactions.
Chet's only appearance in Girl Meets World is in the season 2 episode "Girl Meets Hurricane"; he encourages Shawn to pursue a romantic relationship with Katy, and implies that Shawn would be a good father-figure for Katy's daughter Maya. He soon gets better in the episode "Resurrection". He makes his final appearance in the last episode where Cory gives him a speech about all of things that he has learned over the past seven years. He later returns as a teenager in the sequel series Girl Meets Worldthis time playing a larger role and being portrayed by Uriah Shelton.
Joshua has grown up to be a handsome young man who has a great relationship with Cory and Alan. He also seems to have a charming yet silly personality, akin to Eric.
Maya has a small schoolgirls crush on him for a brief episode. He says that he is too old for her and asks if she understands that. Maya sadly confirms it but says she will still fight for him. Later though in the episode Girl Meets the Tell Tale Tot, Josh says that she's not so little anymore and that he guesses he should stop looking at her like that.
Surviving much longer than his counterparts, Harley and Joey, Frankie's character began his tenure on the show's second season as the "enforcer", torturing the other students, especially the seventh graders, including Cory and Shawn Hunter. Having realized the error of his ways along with longing for true friends, Frankie reforms into a much kinder person in season 3 and begins his friendship with Cory and Shawn. Afterwards, Frankie held Cory and to a lesser extent, Shawn with very high esteem, often turning to them for help and advice.
He enjoys writing poetry. His father is the professional wrestler Vader whose real name is stated on the show as both Francis Albert "Frankie" Stechino, Sr. He has a younger brother named Herman, who develops a crush on Morgan Matthews. Oddly, he lives in the same trailer park as Shawn despite his father's high-profile career.
His last appearances as a recurring character were in the fourth season, and he returned once more, along with Joey, for the graduation episode in season 5. Joey's exact purpose in the bully entourage is never really explained.
Sennett left the show in season three to pursue music with his band Rilo Kileybut he made one last appearance in season five's graduation episode. One of the gags surrounding his character was the oddball sophistication he added to the bullying trade, often referring to the harassment of underclassmen as if it were a career and to his gang as if it were a corporation.
When McNulty left the cast toward the end of the second season, Harley made one more appearance played by Kenny Johnstononly to be subsequently written out under the pretense of going to "juvenile boot camp". The original actor made one last token cameo appearance in the third season. Harley was later a recurring character on the sequel series Girl Meets World. In the interim, Harley has become much more friendly; he cares a great deal about the students' well-being and is not proud of his past.
Unlike their own school days, Harley now holds Cory in high esteem, mainly because it was Cory's influence that got him hired as custodian at John Quincy Adams Middle School, earning him the affectionate nickname "Janitor Harley" by the students.
In the season 1 episode "Girl Meets Flaws", when Farkle is bullied by another student, Harley sympathizes with him and even confronts the bully about his actions. In all, Harley appeared in six episodes of the sequel, including the series finale, "Girl Meets Goodbye". A far different sort of bully than Harley.
While much friendlier, Griff was a smooth-talking freeloader who used his wits and charm to weasel his way out of many an obligation and punishment. He was on the show from — In an episode of the sequel series Girl Meets Worldthere's an easter egg that alludes to Griff. Dialogue suggests they were married at the same age as Cory Matthews and their daughter, Topanga, however their relationship is not as strong due to Jedidiah's off-screen extramarital affair with a woman named Marie.
For Topanga's sake and without her knowledge, Jedidiah and Rhiannon spend years in counseling in an effort to salvage their marriage. After their reconciliation failed, they eventually divorced.
Rhiannon kept their house in Pittsburgh, while Jedidiah moved into an apartment. Their separation caused Topanga to doubt whether her relationship with Cory would last, which led to her breaking their engagement.
However, touched by Cory's perseverance, Topanga ultimately gives their love another chance. By the time of the events of Girl Meets World, Topanga and Cory are shown happily married with two children. Rhiannon is obliquely referred to by her granddaughter Riley at the end of "Girl Meets ", an episode centering on Rihannon's mother, Rosie McGee.
He is often more calm than Eric, and can either be his voice of reason or the one who gets him into trouble. He is quite fond of girls, as is Eric. He was on the show from —; he left the show after graduating and going to college, leaving Eric at home to be a "townie", and was never referenced again.
He was the only character on the series to have the same exact name of the actor portraying him. This section needs expansion.

Consequently, his best friend Shawn asks her out. Although Cory was hurt, he soon realized Shawn set the whole thing up so he could unite Cory and Topanga and make Cory confess his feelings for her. He tells her how he feels, and they become a couple. Later in the third season, Cory and Topanga are worried that their relationship has hit a rut, and decide it would be best to break up while they are still able to keep the friendship. They get back together a few months later when Cory follows her to Disney World to win her back.
Eric spends this season desperately trying to make up for his first three years of slacking off in high school. He makes progress, but it is not enough; he is not accepted to any colleges or universities as of his high school graduation. He decides then to take a year off and figure things out, beginning with a summer road trip. After finding out in the season finale that Cory feels estranged from him, Eric invites Cory along for the ride.
