Short summary

After the gang spills food in the school cafeteria, Riley and Maya are forced to work there, while Lucas and Farkle are assigned janitorial duty with school janitor Harley Keiner, Cory's old bully.

Janitor Harley (Danny McNulty) calls Cory (Ben Savage) "Baboon" at the end of this episode. Johnny Baboon was the nickname that he gave Cory in their first encounter in Das Leben und ich: Back 2 School (1994).

This is Danny McNulty's first acting role since Boy Meets World (1994) where he also played the role of Harley Keiner.

Sarah Carpenter (Sabrina Carpenter's sister) plays a classmate named Sarah in most episodes In the episode "Girl meets the Forgotten" the lunch lady calls Sarah carpenter "three taco Sarah."

While Corey knowing the lunch lady's name works to reinforce the lesson the girls learn, it's also a callback to Boy Meets World. Corey and Topanga organized a memorial service when their lunch lady passed away, and they didn't need anyone pointing out that she was an unsung hero.

August Maturo (Auggie Matthews) does not appear in this episode.

    Boy meets world was known for its great humour coupled with a lesson in every episode. Girls meets world tries to emulate the same concept but doesn't come as close. Until this episode where the kids learn about appreciating the "forgotten" class of people. Really brings back the old series feel where I left it feeling like I had grown slightly as a person and more appreciative of the people around me. I feel Topanga and Cory have really come into the parent role and are comfortable in it as compared to the first few episodes. Kudos to the writers and I hope this sets the bar for future episodes. Bringing back Harley as a mellowed down janitor was a good touch.
