|Everybody Loves Stuart|
|Original Airdate||November 6, 1998|
|Written by||Matthew Nelson|
|Directed by||William Russ|
|Guest starring||Fred Savage as Stuart|
Stuart is the coolest teacher in the school. He jokes around with his students, he shoots pool wagering coffee. As Shawn puts it, he treats his students like adults. But he crosses a line when going over a paper in Topanga's dorm. He hits on her, telling her that he'd like to get to know her and, despite her pleas, that it is what he wants. As soon as Cory gets word, he confronts Stuart. The conversation escalates and results in Cory forcefully pushing Stuart, sending him through the door and into the student union.
Feeny attempts to bargain with Dean Bolander, but fails. Eric congratulates Cory because he knows Stuart is bad thanks to his "fifth sense". Hesitantly, Cory's parents stand behind him, as does Topanga. In an attempt to help his brother, Eric convinces Rachel to attempt to seduce a confession out of Stuart, but she has no luck. At the hearing, things get intense. Stuart remains adamant that he did nothing wrong, going so far as to imply that Topanga came onto him. Feeny grows very angry, expressing his distaste by saying he'd like to "rip off Stuart's head and roll it down the hallway." After a while, Dean Bolander has decided that she's heard enough. She gives Cory one day's suspension, and tells Stuart that he isn't really a teacher. Threateningly, she says she intends to find out what he truly is. After the hearing, Cory, Shawn, Topanga, and Angela realize that they're no longer children.
