Episode Summary


D.J. rushes to prepare for Kimmy's birthday party.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • She's only 16

    This was just an average episode. Seriously how could DJ forget Kimmy's birthday. A friend she has had since childhood. And knowing Kimmy she had reminded DJ many times before that. Also DJ needed to be taught a lesson that just because you have a boyfriend you don't forget your friends. It wasn't funny how they threw together a party. that was really sad. They would have been better off taking Kimmy out to dinner to celebrate.moreless
  • Humorous, unforgettable episode!

    This is a fantastic episode; one of my favorites. The humor in this one is what makes it so appealing. The jokes between Kimmy and Steph really bring out what makes their relationship so funny and vital to the show. Not only do Kimmy and Steph bring out the best in their characters, everyone does. D.J.'s dry cracks about the cake, for example, are great. Michelle's toying with Uncle Jesse is wonderfully typical of her, as is Vicki's almost "lost" personality. When I think of the middle seasons of Full House, I think of when the kids are in their problematic ages like this, and when the problems are funny and satisfying.moreless
  • Kimmy was hilarious in this episode!

    Birthday Blues is about DJ getting ready for her 6 month anniversary with Steve. DJ has forgotten about a very special day for Kimmy, her 16th birthday. DJ has been so excited about their special night that she forgot. DJ tells Kimmy that its her anniversary, and then Kimmy says it is also her birthday. Kimmy thinks DJ is throwing her a surprise party. Kimmy goes home to change and everyone needs to set up for her party. After Kimmy opened her weird presents, Steve ruins it for her and Kimmy`s feeling get hurt. DJ and Kimmy have a talk at the end. This episode was so funny and it was great!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Vicky mispronounces Kimmy's last name, the canned audience does not laugh, but at Kimmy kindly correcting her?! WHY?!

    • Why would Danny always block out 1989 when talking about how long D.J. and Kimmy had known each other? And I need an honest answer. What has Kimmy ever done horribly wrong back in '89?!

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Danny: (to D.J.) Listen, honey. In life, if you're lucky, you wind up with a few really good friends, and somehow, beyond my realm of understanding, Kimmy is yours. And when you have friends, you have to come through for them.

    • Kimmy: (to Comet) Comet, you came too! All these years, I thought you hated me.
      Stephanie: That was mean.

    • D.J.: (trying to find ingredients to make a cake) These cupboards are empty! Who's eating all the food?
      Stephanie: Your boyfriend, Robo-Mouth.

    • Kimmy: (after receiving her birthday present from Joey) Wow, a video! "Sticks and Stones: Hockey's Greatest Fights." Thanks!
      Joey: You're welcome. Just be sure to return it the store by 7, or they'll charge you for an extra day.

    • D.J.: There are things I could do with you that I could never do with Steve.
      Kimmy: Like what?
      D.J.: Like....talk about Steve.

    • Kimmy: Vicky! So that's why you flew in, for my birthday!
      Vicky: Well, would I miss the 16th birthday of Miss Kimmy Gilbert?
      Kimmy: Gibbler.
      Vicky: Gibbler! Sorry. Jet lag.

    • D.J.: You wanna go back to your party?
      Kimmy: Think there's any hash-brown cake left?
      D.J.: Oh, I can pretty much guarantee it.

    • Steve: Yeah, D.J.'s incredible. Who else could've thrown all this together in fifteen minutes?

    • (D.J. has just given Kimmy the flowers that Steve brought her)
      Kimmy: And there's a card. "I'm crazy about you, Sugar Lips."
      Danny: Sugar Lips?
      D.J.: Yeah, Kimmy. Um...remember when we were 11, and you ate that powdered donut and got sugar all over your lips?
      Kimmy: No.
      D.J.: Well, you did, and since then I've always meant to call you Sugar Lips.
      Kimmy: Deej, that is so sweet... and weird.

    • Vicky: Come on, Kimmy will only be 16 once!
      Danny: Yeah, but she'll be a sophomore twice.
