Shawn Hunter

Veronica agrees to date Shawn on a Saturday night after dumping her former boyfriend, Dennis. However, Shawn learns he’s supposed to stay at the Matthews’ that night because Mr. Turner is leaving town for a wedding. 

Initially, Cory tries to keep his parents out later by anonymously canceling their dinner reservations, but the plan backfires as Amy and Alan return home quicker than expected. As a result, Shawn’s date ends early.

However, Shawn decides to go against Turner’s guidelines and sneaks out to pick up Veronica and bring her to what he believes is Turner’s empty apartment. Shockingly, Shawn and Veronica open the door to find Mr. Turner and a female companion, Kris, making out on his couch.

The ordeal creates a conflict between Shawn and Mr. Turner as they both blatantly lied to each other about their plans for the night. Eventually, they resolve the problem and agree to choose honesty. Ironically, Shawn sneaks Veronica into the apartment on a second occasion, and she hides behind the couch until Mr. Turner realizes what happened.
