** In a [[http://www.livingthedreamshow.com/will-friedle/ 2015 podcast with actor Phil Morris]], Creator/WillFriedle, in the last 10 minutes, opened up about his ongoing struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. He still suffers panic attacks almost daily and said that this forced him to quit on screen acting, until his recent reprisal of his role as Eric Matthews on ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld''. He was on medication towards the end of ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'', which caused his weight gain in the last season, but he also said that being medicated was the only reason he was able to get in front of a camera at all. It was never Friedle's intent, but knowing this makes watching Eric's weight gain being made fun of in "She's having my Baby Back Ribs" kind of awkward.

** "Picket Fences" had a running gag where Cory and Topanga were really fixated on the nook of their dream house. Girl Meets World has a nook as the regular discussion place for the characters

YMMV is still not a forum. "Of course, objectively," that's natter.
*** Don't download the version of the song that is up on iTunes. You will be disappointed. ** Also good, if a lot shorter: the season four theme (also used for earlier seasons in syndication), which was an instrumental that played over the cast cruising in Eric's car. ** "Eric Matthews: Good Looking Guy", anyone? ** What? No love for "The Curtains Are On Fire?"

* HeReallyCanAct: All of the cast got the chance to show off their dramatic chops but the best example is probably Will Friedle. Because his character was often the silliest his emotional scenes had the most impact. ** Not to mention in "Eric Hollywood," he makes a pretty decent Romeo.

** In-universe, Cory & Shawn blowing up a revealing picture of Rachel & putting it on display in the Student Union was considered this, as before that they had merely been in a escalating prank war. *** Of course, objectively, the MoralEventHorizon of the prank war was when Rachel, Jack & Angela stuck Cory, Topanga and Shawn in a room with a bear. As Cory rightfully points out, they could have been killed.

** StrawmanHasAPoint: At least in regards to "The War" & "Seven The Hard Way" - It was her ''reserved'' parking spot due to her position as R.A. & Shawn deciding to poke her with a stick.

** Some network executives must have taken notice of Eric's "Good Looking Guy" tv show idea, because the number of police procedurals starring {{Fair Cop}}s has gone ''way'' up since the mid-90s. -->'''Eric:''' All day long I've been watching crimes on tv solved by old guys, by fat guys, by guys in wrinkled raincoats; so naturally, it occurs to me, what this world needs is ''Eric Matthews: Good Looking Detective''.

** This show had a whole lot of this. Marla Sokoloff, Nikki Cox, Keri Russell, Mena Suvari, Creator/BrittanyMurphy, Creator/CharismaCarpenter, Creator/JulieBenz, Shane West, Kristanna Loken, Maggie Lawson, Creator/LindaCardellini, and Nia Vardalos, Elisabeth Harnois all had small parts on the show before becoming more well known for other roles.

** Cory & Shawn, so very much. It's even joked about & parodied in later seasons.

* {{Misblamed}}: Rachel receives some flack from the fandom due to the events of "The War" & "Seven The Hard Way" kicking off due to her banning Shawn & Cory from her dorm room after they park in her spot. Except, [[StrawmanHasAPoint the parking spot was reserved due to her being R.A.]] & it was ''Cory & Shawn'' who took things too far by blowing up a revealing picture of her which then lead to a chain of events which turned everyone against one another, and that the boys [[DisproportionateRetribution retaliated to their banning by parking her car in her bedroom]] & and when Rachel went to an authority figure (Mr. Feeny) [[KarmaHoudini he thought it was funny]] & was more interested in ''how'' they did it than actually punishing them. On top of that, people tend to gloss over the fact that Rachel wasn't acting alone when she set a bear on Corey, Shawn & Topanga.

* HarsherInHindsight: ** The BadFuture in "Seven the Hard Way" depicts Shawn traveling the world as a writer and photographer alone. In ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'', this is exactly where he ends up.
