Everybody Loves Stuart
|Season 6, Episode 7|
November 6, 1998
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 she 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. Stuart then congratulates Cory on getting kicked out of college.
Feeny attempts to bargain with Dean Bolander, but fails. He tells the Matthews that the Dean has scheduled a hearing, with a strong possibility that Cory could face expulsion. Eric congratulates Cory because he knows Stuart is bad thanks to his "fifth sense". Amy and Alan stand behind Cory, 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, Amy apologizes to Topanga for her ordeal on the matter, while Alan thanked Feeny for sticking by him throughout the hearing. Shawn apologized to Feeny forever comparing him to Stuart. Cory finally realizes that College is far more different from high school, which Feeny agrees with. He also has no choice but to agree with the Dean that he can't protect them anymore. He tells that that he had protected in the shelter of high school, but they are now in college and in the real world where things are very different and they are not children anymore. Cory, Shawn, Topanga, and Angela realize that they're no longer children.
