- “We think that we are the center of the universe, but the truth is... we need to circle the ones we love for as long as they're here. We need to hold them close, because no matter how far we travel, they are the ones who hold us in place. It's gravity, and without it, we'd just all float away from each other.”
- ―Riley's speech
Riley and Maya are anxious to begin eighth grade and initally have a new teacher who isn't Riley's father, but they accidentally make him quit and Cory takes his place to Riley's chagrin. Meanwhile, Mrs. Svorski asks Topanga to take over at the bakery because she is dying.
