Girl Meets Home for the Holidays

Picture Credit: Watch Disney

Shawn, Alan, Amy and Joshua return!

This was the episode that every Boy Meets World fan was waiting for since they filmed it back in March. It was the Boy Meets World reunion with Shawn, Alan, Amy and Joshua coming over to Cory and Topanga’s house to celebrate the Holidays with them. Cory was so excited to see Shawn as he hadn’t seen him in a while. It was awesome seeing Alan, Amy and Joshua come through the door then a minute or two later, we see Shawn do the same which was awesome as well.  It was great seeing Cory’s reaction when Shawn returned because it was as if we the time hadn’t changed at all. Shawn didn’t really interact much with the kids and that made Riley feels as if Shawn didn’t like her. She would ask him when her birthday was but he wouldn’t answer. Later on in the episode Shawn brought Riley and Maya to the bakery and finally answered the question that she’d been repeatedly asking him. He told  Riley when she was born, how tall she was, how much  she weighed, and that he was at the hospital all night waiting for Riley to be born.  Before leaving the bakery Riley told Shawn to look her. Once he did he said  “You’re Cory with Topanga’s hair. You got lucky.” which was a fantastic line.

During dinner Shawn and Maya got to talking to each other and they learned that they have some things in common. Shawn told her that he is a writer and a photographer who likes to travel, and Maya told him that she likes to draw. After this episode it seems that Shawn could quite possibly be a father type figure to Maya just like Mr. Turner was to Shawn in Boy Meets World.

I loved that in this episode Shawn and Cory passed the friendship torch down to Maya and Riley by telling them that they are the new “Cory and Shawn” for this generation.

We find out that Shawn gets scared and leaves New York City because it scares him that when he sees Riley, it reminds me of him that he doesn’t have a wife or kids. He also says that he’s not needed anymore as Cory and Topanga are busy with their lives as they have kids now.

One of the funniest parts of the episode is when Farkle came through the window when Shawn and Cory were talking. It only took one look for Shawn to know that Farkle was Minkus’s son. He turned to Cory and said “Minkus reproduced?”. Another funny moment was when Topanga yelled at everyone at the dinner table for devouring the food in 5 minutes since it took her two days to cook it all.

Maya also develops a crush with Riley’s uncle Josh.

There were great Boy Meets World nods in this episode as well which were the below:

Yip yip yip
“Yip, yip, yip, yip”

( Picture Credit: Watch Disney )

*While Cory and Shawn was sleeping on the couch and snoring, Cory did the “yip, yip, yip” reference.
*When Shawn and Topanga saw each other again, Cory went to them and said “My favorite person in the world and my wife”. (This was hilarious as well).
*Cory called Shawn “Shawnie”.
*Near the end of the episode, Cory saying to Topanga that their childhood was amazing together but it’s over now and it’s better now and the family that Topanga gave him is everything to him. Topanga is everything to Cory and she put her hand on his heart.

One downside was that Eric and Morgan weren’t mentioned in this episode. Overall, this episode was fantastic.

    I loved the episode, but the only flaw, they should of at least mentioned Eric and Morgan and why they weren’t there.

  • KS

    where was Eric and Morgan?!

    Imma just repost my Facebook review this time 😛

    Girl Meets Home for the Holidays…. Greatest episode.
    Pretty hard to review this one like I normally do cause that was just too good but I’ll give it a decent shot. It had loads of Boy Meets World references. Is it just me or when Shawn was calling for a cheque was it like Eric just without the whole “FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE BRING ME THE CHEQUE!”. Fantastic seeing Alan and Amy again and Josh is sort of like Season 1 Eric, could he turn into his oldest brother I wonder? Speaking of Josh I’m now excited to see what they have in store for him and Maya in Season 2.
    Favourite part of the episode was definitely the scene at Riley’s window, was dying when Farkle came in, I couldn’t stop laughing and I loved the little moment Maya then had with Shawn, definetly made me hope Shawn will stick around for her.
    They’ve certainly upped their game with this episode, it was fantastic seeing all those old characters back again and I’m now really excited to see Shawn again in ” Girl Meets Masterplan” whenever that airs.

  • LeaBeth

    I loved the Series brought back alot of memories watching the new season. Thank you for bringing it back. hope to see more familiar faces though..

  • Desiree

    I loved it. It felt like my childhood was back. It made me cry. The show was amazing. Thank you Girl Meets World for this. I love Girl Meets World.

  • Jane

    I loved the show except for one thing. Why was Corey ‘ s mom so mean to Topanga. I tthough she had solved her issues with Topanga when Corey officially Proposed to Topanga.

  • Jason S.

    So… where was Cory’s sister?

  • Leanne

    I can’t say in words what watching this episode meant to me personally, it was well written, funny and completely amazing to watch. This show is so special in so many ways and not just this episode but all of them. I hope this show is on for a very long time.

  • dominicksmomma

    I loved this episode i can honestly say that i screamed when alan, amy and josh walked through the door but when shawn walked in i screamed n was just so excited for the episode!!!

  • Dennis

    I so love this episode
    Though I think I found a plot-hole

    Riley says she has met Shawn a few times, and everytime they meet, Shawn avoids her. But Shawn says he hasn’t visited in 13-years. So Riley would still be a baby and should not be able to remember Shawn.

    …..Still… Love this episode. Favorite so far

  • I agree with leanne 100%. I also really feel like this episode paved a way for shawn to become an official cast member which I am really hoping for! (The apt upstairs IS FOR RENT) and it would tie in with maya and all of their lives!! This episode was so amazing as the new show is all around. I am 28 and I am hooked in love with Riley and Maya’s friendship anyway! I really think this show has potential to keep an audience of all ages if it continues keeping the old guys in a few rounds!!

  • Sonny

    I loved all the returners! Best episode yet & I don’t think it was close! Cory still over-acts and it was more evident in this episode when everyone else returning was so natural. But loved that Josh was there! Him and Lucas should get some air time. That would be awesome.

  • TheFalcon

    Really enjoyed this episode. Even with some flaws, the highs were so high that I was grinning and misty-eyed throughout.

    I just hope the show keeps improving and sticking to simple emotional stories like this one. Tell a moving story with zany jokes, not a zany story with tacked-on sentiment. Maya’s Mother, 1961, Forgotten, Holidays = YES. Sneak Attack, Crazy Hat, World of Terror, Friendship = NO.

  • Bruce

    I can say that this episode made me laugh a lot more than some of the other ones (not saying the others are bad). I seen the preview before hand was waiting to see this one. Once I watch I felt like that I was part of the family. It has growing bigger and better. On a side note I would still like to see some of the old cast come to. And lastly I love when they do the flashbacks like when Topanga kisses Cory.

  • dinsinga

    Really loved the episode,great to see Shawn and Cory together again.l truly love the writing on this program its nice to have TV with morals .i think Mr. Feeney should have shown up dresses as Santa or something.Ok so there was no mention of Eric or Morgan
    but I don’t think it was a flaw.I liked the comparing of the two friendships,and they did a good job casting Josh.It was a very heartwarming episode.I hope there are more episodes like this one it was very BOY MEETS WORLD.

  • Kyle

    They struck the perfect tone this week. I half expected this to disappoint somehow but it really didn’t. I would have liked more of the parents but I’m sure they’ll be back another time.

  • zach

    Shawn will adopt mya…. it’s obvious

  • Jim

    Said the word “Holiday” way too much. Not one time did they say Christmas. Didn’t like that at all! Even though they obviously celebrate Christmas with the tree and presents.

  • Jess

    This episode was very nostalgic for all of us who grew up wight this group of people.

    I hope that these, and most, original characters join the show and at the same time the new group of kids go through all of the growing pains that the original cast went through.

    It would be wonderful to have 7 Seasons of Girl Meets World.

  • anewman14

    Would love for them to develop Auggie’s character a bit more….and tone down rileys acting …but love them all

  • It would of been nice to at least mention Eric’s and Morgan’s name even if they weren’t able to make it for that episode.
    Sample:
    Corey : where’s morgan and Eric?
    Alan: morgan is in Europe and Eric probably lost in the woods somewhere playing and talking with some squirrels.
    Amy: what your father is trying to say is he’s on a week long ski trip with friends with no cell phone reception.
    Corey: well then…. all that matters is that Shawn is here yaaaaay!!!
    Shawn: my whole life…
    (Corey tackles Shawn again)

  • Tiffany

    I absolutely loved this episode! There were so many great parts, and I love that we could possibly see a lot of Shawn in future episodes. Josh could also become one of my favorite characters if he becomes a regular, but unfortunately Cory’s parents still live in Philly – at least I assume they do.

    Random: I hope Cory and Topanga have another kid in the future.

  • ali6132

    I think aunt maya has a nice ring to it lol

  • Rick

    As an avid BMW fan I have to say this brings me lots of joy and hope for the following seasons. I loved every part of this episode. Eric, Rachel (aka, big girl) and Angela must be having their own XMAS this year 🙂 In fact, it would be awesome to somehow work this into the story of next season! I love watching this show as it brings me hope that TV can be brought back to a time when it meant something. Heck with the reality TV, this is what I want. Now BMW is my favourite of all time but if this continues then this might be a close second. Kudos to Ben Savage, Daniel Fishel, Michael Jacobs for re-kindling a flame for wholesome TV. Thank you all! Will Friedle, toss your anxiety aside, come on board (I know there are glimpses of you next season). I will leave you with the best Feeny quote ever: “Do good!”

  • Jeanette

    I was so excited to see this episode and it definitely didn’t disappoint! At one point i called my daughter from her room and excitedly shouted, “Shawnie’s back!” She shook her head and went back to her room but it’s ok because she just doesn’t know lol
    lol

  • shiann

    what did riley say when she walked in the door?
