Episode Summary

After rising past the embarrassment to ask a hunky classmate to a school dance, Stephanie is crushed when Ryan stands her up on the night of the event. Seeing his daughter in such pain is more than Danny can handle, and when his rage is unleashed, he confronts Ryan directly, giving the young man a thing or two to think about regarding his selfish behavior. Ryan stuns Stephanie by apologizing and asking if they can start fresh, but what will she do when she recognizes her father's role in all of this? Meanwhile, as Michelle gets increasingly frustrated over DJ's ability to beat her in everything, the 8-year-old is forced to get downright devious in order to come out on top. Jesse is advised by his doctor to lower his blood pressure, but with a certain person named Kimmy Gibbler living right next door, relaxation is not as simple as it sounds!moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Stephanie stood up real bad.

    I can't believe what a stupid mistake that was Ryan pulled on Stephanie about the night of the dance they were going to at the high school. Instead he does a last minute change by going with friends to the movies and not let Stephanie know about it? What was he thinking at first? I hated that. He didn't even call Stephanie or still come to the house to get her? I am glad Danny gave him a lecture he would not ever forget.moreless
  • stupid ass website

    id fuckin love it if i could fuckin watch it
  • Stephanie asks a guy to the dance, but then gets stood up. So she decides to get back at him by standing him up when he asks her out on a date because Danny told him that Stephanie cried.moreless

    I though this episode was so so good!! I really felt bad for Steph. Haha that guy Ryan was a jerk. But I loved the way that the story line was. Again I must say that the writers do a fantasic job on the script. Hahah "it was spam!" lol I just thought that line was halarious! I highly recommend this episode and all other Full House episodes to anyone who enjoys comedy or family sitcoms. I thought that this episode really showed what can happen when you stand someone up. It taught a good lesson. I am glad this episode is out. It really is one of the best.moreless
  • Your dad threatened him with canned meat.

    Your dad threatened him with canned meat was the rumor going around school about stephanie and her date after he stood her up. Parents don't go and talk to their kids dates who don't show up or something. How embarrassing that would be. Also whats up again with live stock in the neighborhood. A silly game of cat and dog between Kimmy and Jesse.
  • Poor Steph.

    Ryan was wrong to stand Steph up. He could at least called her and said he couldn't make it or he was going bowling or to invite her! What was he thinking!?! Stephanie built the whole New York City skyline waiting for him! What a jerk!

    This whole episode was kinda sad on Stephanie's part. I can feel her pain. Though I've never had a boyfriend, or in my case, GIRLFRIEND, or been stood up before, I can still imagine what it'd feel like to go through all of that. Again, how could Ryan do that?

    I could see him ditching Stephanie if she still looked like herself in Seasons 1-3, but in Season 8? Stephanie looked really good! How could he ditch her like that? Well, stood up, really. Ditching is when you are already with the person. Nevermind.

    Great episode, and great plot, and great acting by all of the characters. Just too bad Stephanie had to dodge a date with him as well for payback. Oh well, in the end, everything went fine, and they finally went out for pizza.

    And Full House, being the great family comedy show it is, ended this episode with a hug from Stephanie to Danny.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, Danny didn't know who Ryan was at first, but he was able to point him out because someone called him by his first name. It's a little odd that Danny automatically assumed that was the exact same Ryan that stood up Stephanie. For all Danny knew, there could have been a hundred Ryans in that school.

    • Kimmy's pet ostrich Oscar is obviously a fake bird, though it is real in the show's script. You can easily tell that it is a puppet.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Danny: (after Stephanie hugs him) What was that for?
      Stephanie: For being a caring, involved parent who sticks up for his daughter.
      Danny: Thanks, honey.
      Stephanie: Just don't ever do it again.

    • Stephanie: Ryan apologized.
      Gia: I know. The whole school knows. You're dad chased him down the hall, clobbered him with canned ham, and shoved him in a locker.
      Danny: It was not a can of ham, it was SPAM.

    • DJ: (when Michelle thinks she can beat her at something) All right, Michelle, but just remember, I'm older, I'm wiser.....
      Michelle: You're also taller. (brings out a limbo stick that Nicky and Alex are holding) Let's get ready to liiiiimbo!
      DJ: Michelle, this is totally unfair.
      Michelle: That's the beauty of it. (starts music, does the limbo without a problem, looks to DJ)
      Nicky: Your turn, DJ.
      Alex: How looooow can you gooooo?
      DJ: (sighs, tries to do it, stops) Not that low. (turns off music) Congratulations, Michelle. You win.
      Michelle: Finally, I beat my big sister at something!
      DJ: Michelle, that was cruel, sneaky, and underhanded. I've taught you well. Nice work.

    • Ryan: Look, your dad didn't threaten me. He just made me realize what a rat I was to stand you up.
      Stephanie: Really? (pause) And I guess I was a rat to stand you up.
      Danny: Well, you know, two rats don't make a wrong!

    • Danny: Deej, did I just hear limbo music?
      DJ: What you heard was the end of an era.

    • Danny: You didn't see Stephanie on the couch, all dressed up with noplace to go.
      Ryan: She took it pretty hard, huh?
      Danny: She was devastated. It broke my heart to see the tears in her eyes.
      Ryan: I didn't mean to make her cry.
      Danny: You didn't think about her feelings at all! Not only did you ruin her night, but you missed out on knowing a really terrific person. Maybe next time, Ryan, you should try thinking of someone besides yourself.

    • Danny: Steph, you can't change schools.
      Stephanie: I want to change dads!
      Danny: Look, I didn't mean to embarrass you. It just hurt me to see how much he hurt you. I'm sorry. I hope someday you understand.

    • Stephanie: Listen, Ryan, I know the only reason you asked me out again is because my dad threatened you with canned ham.
      Danny: It was SPAM!

    • Stephanie: It's official. Ryan's not coming.
      Danny: Steph, you don't know that for sure.
      Stephanie: Dad, I was supposed to be home 10 minutes ago.
      Danny: Well, maybe something happened.
      Stephanie: Something did happen. I've been stood up.

    • Becky: Kimmy, can we please put an end to this? I am sure you do not want to jeapordize Jesse's health.
      Kimmy: Well, of course not. If he croaks, I won't be able to bug him anymore!
      Becky: You see that, Jess? Underneath it all, she really almost cares.

    • Ryan: Let's go get some pizza.
      Stephanie: Okay, but it's on me. (walks up to Danny with her hand out) Dad?

    • Michelle: Finally I beat my big sister at something!
      DJ: Michelle! That was very sneaky and underhanded...I've taught you well.

    • DJ: (to Stephanie) Hmm let's see - my lipstick, my eyeliner, my blush, I hope my face has a good time tonight!
