** In one episode, Cory gets shocked by a microwave and wakes up in the 50s, complete with disastrously naive nuclear bomb safety drills. At one point, he [[ItMakesSenseInContext ends up in jail]], only to be bailed out by his parents, who affect an extremely hip vibe. When they get close enough, they suddenly take on heavy old world accents and ask him if he has "the information," prompting Cory to ask why they sound like [[RockyAndBullwinkle Boris and Natasha]]. Funnily enough:

** All of the Matthews family besides Cory and Eric arguably becomes this starting in Season 6. As neither Cory nor Eric lives at home at this point, and as they are now adults and more or less on their own, there isn't necessarily a need for their parents or pre-teen sister to appear as members of the main cast, but as they were established characters who'd been around since the beginning they were kept in the opening credits and started appearing in roughly half the episodes rather than most or all.

Shawn [[TechnicalVirgin will get as sick as you can without actually dying]]. Meanwhile, Cory nudges Topanga and says "[[AManIsNotAVirgin Hey, thanks for saving me]]".

** In episode 10 of Season 1, Morgan is learning "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" on the piano, much like George Bailey's daughter in [[ItsAWonderfulLife It's a Wonderful Life]]. Given that the episode had a "spirit of Christmas" theme, this was probably intentional.
