7x16: seven the hard way

Boy Meets Men

The central relationship of Boy Meets World is Cory and Toganga’s love story.  …Right?

I grew up watching and loving Boy Meets World, but my wife had never seen it. So to share it with her, I recently bought all seven seasons and we watched them together.

As we followed Cory’s journey from sixth grade to college, I began to notice something I hadn’t before. Topanga might be the central relationship in Cory’s life, but she’s not necessarily the most influential.

Instead, many of the episodes focus on other relationships—Cory’s friendship with Shawn, Mr. Feeny’s mentorship of Eric, Cory’s relationship with his dad and even Shawn’s relationship with God.

It’s these masculine relationships in Cory’s life that prove to be most important as he grows up. And I think that’s what Boy Meets World is really about.

Boy Meets World Season 7 Episode 16 “Seven the Hard Way”

There’s a couple reasons I love this. 


2. There’s a great message attached.

My fellow BMW fans know where I’m going with this. In my opinion, this episode has one of the funniest scenes in all of tv. Also, Feeny once again works his magic and keeps the group together. God bless that man!

Lose one friend, lose all friends, lose yourself

-Plays with Squirrels

“‘Lose one friend,  lose all friends, lose yourself.”

“So, why are all the other pages blank?”

“Nothing else seemed important.”

I remember the very first time I watched this episode and heard this line. I was probably 8 or 9, but it still affected me for some reason. I thought it was the most insightful thing I had ever heard. I even remember making something and writing those words on it. And now, at the age of 19, I still think “Lose one friend, lose all friends, lose yourself” is one of the greatest and most honest lines ever spoken on a TV show, and I’ve carried it with me for the past 10 years. The words are true; I’ve lived them. And they teach just how important friendship really is. If you let yourself lose one friend, you’re either going to stop caring about what else happens because of the hurt, or let yourself continue to think it’s okay to let your other friends fall by the wayside, and then soon enough, you’re no longer the same person. You’ve just become a shell of yourself.

What this show was trying to teach us, not just with this line, but with subtle and big nuances alike in every episode, is that friendship is important; it’s too important. Don’t burn a bridge just because you left a small match unattended.
