  • lost in space

    steve goes up into space with two famous astronauts, but this means he has to postpone his wedding with laura. worse yet, steve's invention nearly costs him and the astronauts' their lives'. To Be Continued... in the series finale!

    A good episode, part one of the finale, whilst it is somewhat random (Steve going up in space...) I think it was interesting and funny. Eddie's plot was really serious, especially in the next half. Overall, whilst it was not the best episode, it was a well made one, i think, and thus it gets an A+ from me. Just perfectmoreless

  • Okay episode.

    I must say that I didn't like the pairing of Steve and Laura then I didn't like it now. Seeing Steve try to get Laura for over 9 years was funny but seeing them together is weird and I don't like it. I must say that Myra was a better fit. Seeing her try to stop Steve from going into space was funny. I also liked the comedy of the episode. The one thing I really hated was the fact that the storylines got way out of character. Overall, an okay episode that was entertaining, but really out to lunch. Thank you.moreless
  • 9 Years of a heart warming and laugh bringing show come to an end...

    9 Years of a heart warming and laugh bringing show come to an end... We all know and love the characters by now (except for the Harriet replacement) and for me seeing this show end wasent the happiest thing to see except for the fact that Steve and Laura are getting married. Eddie quit college and is beginning to be a great cop. And most of all Carl is accepting Steve Urkle. In this part 2 of a 2 part episode, Urkel is sent outside the shuttle Explorer to repair the damage done to the ship by the sattelite. Well forgetting to connect his teather he yanks on the sattelite and floats off into space. Using his brain Steve hotwires the sattelite and uses the thrusters to float back to the Shuttle, and safely traveling back to earth. Even though this show has ended, and im sure fans didnt want it to, i give this final episode of Family Matters a 9.5 because all of Urkels wants have come true. Eddie finds what he wants to do in life. And the last words of this Series leave you very happy for Steve and Laura.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the opening scene, Steve talks about inviting his Uncle Cecil to the wedding, but in the "Paris Vacation" episode, he told Stefan that Uncle Cecil was dead.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Steve: It's a longstanding Urkel tradition to wait three months before consumating the marriage.
      Laura: But Steve...
      Steve: Okay, okay, okay, you talked me out of it.

    • Carl: (reads the back of an ice cream bar) Hmm... "half the fat and half the calories." Hey! I could have another one!

    • (looking over Carl's bullet-proof vest)
      Eddie: Looks like a bullet hole.
      Carl: .38 slug.
      Eddie: You never told me you were shot.
      Carl: You were only five when it happened—a routine traffic stop. I caught this guy speeding and pulled him over, asked to see his license, he pulled out a gun and shot me.
      Eddie: What for?
      Carl: Turns out he was wanted for murder in the next town. He thought I got the drop on him. If it weren't for this vest, I wouldn't be here today.

    • Laura: You'll be the first student in space. You're only 21 years old and you're going to make history.
      Steve: Yeah, and to think a year ago I couldn't even get a job at Taco Bell.
