Savage spoke to PEOPLE in 2021 about the biggest love lessons fans can learn from Boy Meets World. At the time, the actor said he admires the way Cory and Topanga "really followed their hearts" — like in season 4's two-part episode "A Long Walk to Pittsburgh", when Topanga decides to stay in Philadelphia with Cory and live with her aunt (played by Olivia Hussey), as opposed to relocating to Pittsburgh with her parents and finishing high school five hours away.

"That's easier said than done," he added of following one's heart. "It's not an easy thing to do, and obviously it requires sacrifice — but I think, in the end, that's what makes people happy."
