Adam Scott closes with alleged ‘Boy Meets World’ snub


Well, that’s inconvenient.

Adam Scott went on the “Boy Meets World” rewatch podcast, “Pod Meets World,” on Sunday and joked confronted Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong and Will Friedle about a moment on set that he said he still thinks about decades later.

Scott was a recurring character on the popular 1990s sitcom, in which he played delinquent Griff Hawkins.

The specific moment Scott remembered happened while the cast was on set filming the Season 2 finale. The episode in question aired in 1995.

Scott said that while everyone on set was cheering to celebrate the end of the season, he went over to give Strong a high-five and a hug, only to be rejected by Strong.

Scott explained that Strong pushed him off and gave him “this look of, ‘Wait a minute. Who the hell are you?’”

Scott said Strong then walked away from him.

“Literally, this has been pulling on me for 29 years,” Scott said.

Strong claimed he didn’t remember the moment and even wondered, “Why would I do that?”

Fishel and Friedle’s mouths dropped open and laughter ensued.

Relieved, Scott concluded that he was glad Strong couldn’t remember the stupidity, because “to some degree that means it wasn’t a traumatic experience.”

In the words of the great Mr. Feeny: “I love you all. Class fired.”
