  • Episode Description
  • As Danny starts spending more time with Claire, Stephanie and Gia fantasize about the possibility of becoming stepsisters. Michelle, however, is not quite ready for these types of changes, and her methods of sabotaging her father's latest relationship are both shocking and hilarious. Meanwhile, DJ experiences some troubles in her own love life when her boyfriend Viper begins feeling threatened by her intellectually.

    • DJ: (at Smash Club) Hi, I'm DJ, and I'll be your waitress. Danny: Hi, I'm Danny, and I'll be your father!

    • Michelle: So, you must be the babe who's hittin' on my old man! Got a smoke? Claire: (shocked) Oh, no, I'm sorry, I quit. Michelle: Too bad, I'm trying to start.

    • Michelle: Hey, I'm just being myself--bad to the bone! Danny: Michelle, I've seen all your X-rays, you don't have a bad bone in your body! Come here. Look, I want you to go into the bathroom, change right now, and I want all that makeup off your face, and then you come back, and we're gonna talk about this. Michelle: (in a snotty voice) Maybe we will, maybe we won't! (Danny gives her a look) Maybe we will?

    • Michelle: Move it or lose it! Is my root beer here yet? I like to suck it down before all the foam's gone!

    • Gia: My mom and your dad? Steph, this is so cool! Stephanie: Yeah. I mean, what if they really hit it off and get married? How great would that be? We'd be sisters! Yes! Gia: Then we could share the same room, stay up late... Stephanie: ...Put our beds together and share secrets no one would understand! (chuckles) Michelle: Hey, wait a second! This is my room, too! Gia: Don't worry, little Michelle. We'll find a place for you. It's a big house.

    • Nicky and Alex only appear in the beginning scene before the opening credits.

    • During the closing credits, we see images of Jesse's new band, "Hot Daddy And The Monkey Puppets", performing at the Smash Club.

    Trivia (5)

    • When Danny tells Michelle to change out of her punk get-up, Michelle does, and she comes back shortly after with her hair arranged perfectly in a nice half ponytail. However, in her previous scene, she had clearly used hairspray to make her hair all frizzy and going every which way, so it's physically impossible that she got it to be completely straight and clean again, unless she went home and washed it.

    • Mary-Kate Olsen, who plays Michelle in the classic "makeover" scene, really shows her knack for comedy at a young age. It was especially funny when she asked Claire, "Got a smoke?" Interestingly, Mary-Kate later did a similar bit with her character in her and Ashley's short-lived but hilarious sitcom "Two of a Kind," in an episode where the girls were trying to drive away their father's newest date (just as Michelle did in this episode).

    • While Stephanie and Gia are reading a teen magazine, Stephanie mentions "teased hair, leather jacket, black lipstick;" this is the exact look Michelle wears when she rebels against Danny's dating Claire.

    • When Danny and Claire join Stephanie and Gia at their table, DJ comes over and asks if she can take everyone's order. But after introducing herself to Claire, she leaves without taking any orders. Then Danny says he's going to go and get two cappuccinos. Why didn't he just ask DJ? Response: D.J. may have gotten a bit uncomfortable when Danny started talking about his cologne.

    • In this episode, Kimmi says that she got a D in french. In previous episodes, her and DJ both took spanish. She suddenly takes french?

    • Named after the 1994 Harrison Ford movie:"Clear & Present Danger" Or, if you trace the expression "Clear and Present Danger" further back, the title comes from a political doctrine.
