Cory Matthews


Having a hard time enthralling his students with the message of Much Ado About Nothing, Mr. Turner decides to spice things up by changing it into a project about the modern day views of sex and love. He splits the students up into boy/girl pairs, gives them video cameras, and tells them to interview their friends about their opinions on sex and love, and then edit it into a documentary. Among these teams are Cory and Topanga.

From the beginning, Cory doesn't take it as seriously as Topanga. While she dutifully lays out the specifics of their project, Cory decides to play around with the camera imitating NYPD Blue. Finally, they get to interviewing their friends and family, and stay up late in the school to edit their movie, calling each of their parents to say they would be staying at the others house for a while.

However, they fall asleep together and are found in the morning by Janitor Bud. Feeny, thinking they did more than technically sleep together, takes them into his office to lecture them. Although he accepts their denial, word has already gotten out. They emerge from the office to find a group of guys, including Shawn and Harley. While understanding his new godhood is based on a misunderstanding, Cory neglects to clear things up. Topanga becomes angry at him, and declares that he is no longer her friend.

When Alan overhears Shawn calling Cory a god, he gets the story out of Cory. He helps Cory realize that friendship matters more to him than popularity, and Cory inserts an apology on the end of the documentary that explains it was a misunderstanding. After it plays in class, Cory hopefully asks if they are friends once more, and Topanga affirms it.

Trivia Edit

  • This and The Beard are the only episodes to bear a TV-PG-D rating in syndication on ABC Family.
  • The title and Cory and Topanga's predicament are most likely a parody of the song "Wake up, Little Susie", by The Everly Brothers.
