We all want our high school graduation to be as just unforgettable as it is in the movies. I mean, who could forget the last scene of She's All That, when Freddie Prince Jr. -- wearing nothing but a soccer ball to cover himself -- goes up to accept his diploma and then throws the ball to Rachel Leigh Cook? Or when Ricky proposes to Amy onstage after his valedictorian speech in The Secret Life of the American Teenager? Not to mention Shawn Hunter's ode to his favorite teacher, Mr. Feeny, on Boy Meets World -- if that one doesn't make you get a little misty, we don't know what will.
