"Mr. Feeny, did we die?"

"To me it seemed like that finale could have been the finale to any TV show ever. The final season of Friends could have been had an alternate reality in which they didn't know each other and then when they touch hands they remember good times at Central Perk. And then die happy. Blah." - Dana Shaffer

Does the final scene of Boy Meets World look a little familiar to anyone? Watching that final scene last night, only having sampled the first few seasons of the show this week (for work-related reasons), I could have sworn that Cory, Shawn, Topanga, and Eric were dead, and that Mr. Feeny was their guide to the great beyond. It actually plays pretty much the same whether you think that they are alive or dead. And at least it explains why Shawn apologizes to Eric for strangling him to death in a misbegotten scheme to get back to the trailer park ('We have to go back!').
