In an episode all about finding what’s important in life, “Girl Meets World” mounts another “Boy Meets World” callback, answering a question that was never answered on the original series.

In this exclusive clip from the episode titled “Girl Meets Bear,” Cory (Ben Savage) takes a moment out of helping Riley (Rowan Blanchard) look for her favorite stuffed animal to relay a story that fans of the original series will remember.

As Auggie (August Maturo) digs up a pair of silver boxing gloves on a chain, Cory is immediately transported back to his own childhood, when his dad gave him the jewelry in question, in the “Boy Meets World” episode “Kid Gloves.”

In that episode, Cory gave his meaningful 12th birthday present back to his father for safekeeping, and the silver gloves were never brought up on the show again. “Girl Meets World” finally answers the question of whether or not Cory ever got the chain back.

The Disney Channel sitcom follows Cory and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter Riley as she and her friends Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), Lucas (Peyton Meyer) and Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis) navigate high school and growing up in this modern world.

“Girl Meets World” airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Disney Channel.

The “Girl Meets Bear” episode premieres on Friday, Aug. 26.
