There has only ever been one Halloween-themed episode of television. It was during the fifth season of Boy Meets World. It was called “And Then There Was Shawn.” It starred Jennifer Love Hewitt. It is the greatest half-hour of one of the greatest shows of all time.
I have no desire to talk about the episode where DJ Tanner played a witch.
“One of my favorite lines in that episode is when Will and Matt Lawrence were told by Rider that ‘it is the virgin who lives. The person engaged in sexual activity that is first to die.’ Eric says, ‘I’m dead.’ And Matt says, ‘I’m dead.’ And Rider says, ‘I’ll get as sick as you can get without actually dying. A giant laugh in the house.” (An oral history of the episode, should you care to read it.)
