Episode Summary

EDIT

Michelle's very first pet--a goldfish named Martin from the local carnival, is nice to look at, but not so much fun to play with.

    • When Joey gives Michelle a pinch of fish food for Martin, notice Michelle's hand when she allegedly "empties" it into the bowl. You can totally tell she had nothing in her hand to begin with.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Michelle: I got a fishy!
      Joey: And tell everybody how you won that fishy.
      Michelle: I tossed a ball into his bowl.
      Danny: Yeah, and at a quarter a throw, it only cost me $18.50.

    • Rebecca: Swing your partner round and round.
      Lift that girl right off the ground!
      All: WHOO-HOO!
      Rebecca: Now if that woman starts to roam,
      just promenade that lady home!
      Take it, Danny!
      Danny: Now right, left, grand once and then once more.
      Just don't leave scuff marks on the floor.
      Now all join hands and circle right.
      Jesse: Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! I'm outta here!
      (he tries to leave, but Danny stops him)
      Danny: No, no. Come on back in line here. Take it, Joey!
      Joey: Put your left foot in, put your left foot out.
      Do the hokey-pokey and you shake it all about!
      Do the monkey and the mash-potato.
      Get on the floor and do the Alligator!

    • Michelle: Where are you taking Martin?
      Danny: We're gonna give him a proper burial at sea.
      Michelle: Is he going to the ocean?
      Jesse: Eventually.

    • Jesse: See, Michelle, the thing to do is remember all the good times you had with Martin, like the car ride home...the walk to your room... guess that's about it, isn't it?

    • Jesse: Danny, why are you telling her that fish will live a long time? Those things die if you look at them funny.
      Danny: Got it covered. Joey...
      (Joey opens a cupboard and reveals many live fish)

    • Joey: Martin Tanner is dead.
