Boy Meets World: Eric Matthews’ 10 Funniest Moments
Boy Meets World still holds a soft spot in the heart of fans, and not only was it popular when it aired from 1993-2000, it remained so popular, it got its very own spin-off in 2014: Girl Meets World. It may have seemed like a “squeaky clean” family show, but it was so much more than that, and above all, it was really funny which was thanks in large part to Will Friedle as Eric Matthews. All of the characters had their moments, but Eric was without a doubt the funniest thanks to his perfectly crafted lines and extremely well done facial expressions. His humor wasn’t all family safe either. It was sometimes dark and sexual, but it was always hilarious. Check out Eric Matthews’ 10 funniest moments from Boy Meets World.
10. The ‘Talk” With Cory
Eric and Cory may not have seen eye to eye on everything, but he was a very loving older brother, who always meant well even though his plans were rarely executed properly. As brothers, they were also very different and Eric always seemed to have a way with the ladies and Cory didn’t, but that doesn’t mean it should have been Eric giving Cory the sex talk. “Cory, sex is like a bike without training wheels. If you try it before you’re ready, you’re gonna fall off and break your head.”
9. Angela’s Men
In the season 7’s episode “Angela’s Men,” Angela’s army father comes for a visit and decides to let Eric know exactly what he thinks of him before leaving. While most people would be quite upset over being called a disgrace to “humanity in general,” Eric was not and had a classic Eric reaction, making it yet another great scene of comedy in the show.
