Trina McGee | “There was a scene where it was a cheerleading episode, and I wasn’t feeling so great that day. And Rider [Strong] whispers in my ear to say the line differently… real crazy… ‘and start kissing’ right before the take. And I did it, and it made everybody laugh. And I was like, ‘Why am I’m excited for? This is so silly, I’m on T.V.’ I always remember that because Rider was such a champion for me.” (X)

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: I don't understand why the writers couldn't make shawn and katy a couple without erasing the importance and significance of angela in shawn's life. shawn loved angela so much. angela helped him grow as a person and made him so freaking happy and even though they aren't corpanga, their love and relationship was just as real. I know that it would have seemed unrealistic for shawn to also end up with his highschool sweetheart like cory but its even more unrealistic for the writers to expect me to believe the trash they just gave me in the last episode.

Topanga (to Katy): You know, it’s something I’d never thought I’d see… the way his eyes light up. I’ve known Shawn almost his entire life, and I have never seen his eyes light up like that.

Imagine if Angela was a recurring character.

Just think, she could’ve ran Topanga’s

Angela and Shawn could’ve been brought back as a non married couple BUT ZAY COULD’VE BEEN THEIR CHILD………

Topanga and Angela’s friendship could’ve been there to help Riley and Maya so they could get a female side of best friends instead of just using Cory and Shawn as an example

Angela could’ve been the female advice giver the gang would go to

Angela, Topanga and Katy could’ve been a very cute friendship

Imagine if they actually used and respected Angela’s character instead of dismissing all their POC characters
