    I thought this was just an average episode. Same old same old. Joey gets a job, something good, Joey looses job, something bad, Joey's voice gets a job Yeah. How come they followed through with any of these jobs Joey gets. What happened to the show he was going to do a voice over for? Again same ole same ole.
  • A great premise - Stephanie getting teased for her name - and a silly one - Joey auditioning for a show that given its silly nature it's no wonder the network never lets it get off the groundmoreless

    A great concept and a silly one averge out to even. Stephanie's part int his, wanting her name changed and all, is great, as that's the age when lots of kids make fun of names and things. It's also great the way everyone supports Joey. One assumes Danny puts Michelle in timeout for making the phone calls, we'll give him that. But, then at the end they announce that the show wasn't picked up as originally auditioned for, but thaat Joey would do the voice of a surfing kangaroo or something? That took it down a notch, and to me, it was the writers saying, "We're never going to use this again, let's change Joey's show format at the very end to the kind of cartoon so strange the network would cancel it after one episode, and the audience will assume they did." As happens with some shows.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • I understand why Stephanie wants to change her first name, but why change her middle name from Judith to Arielle (which is totally ridiculous)?! Nobody teased her with her middle name!

    • Near the end of the episode, it is revealed that "Surf's up" was to be picked up and turned into a cartoon series with Joey voicing one of the characters. The show itself and Joey's role on it are somewhat never mentioned again.

      REPLY: Apparently, it was a summer-only job (taping in the summer before airing in the fall).

    • In this episode, and only this, Stephanie temporarily changes her name to Dawn.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jesse: Just out of curiosity, how do you keep your hair so shiny and manageable?
      Frankie: Oh, well you see, I always condition with avocados.
      Jesse: Oh, me too. Me too. And once in a while I put a little mayonnaise.
      Frankie: No, you ought to try a little bit of lime juice and cilantro.
      Jesse: Oh, does that help restore the pH balance?
      Frankie: No, but it makes a great dip.

    • Rebecca: (about Danny) Look how star-struck Danny is. He's practically drooling over Annette.
      (Frankie Avalon enters)
      Frankie: Hey, gang! Everybody ready to rock 'n roll?!
      Rebecca: (surprised) AAAH! It's Frankie! Mr. Avalon, you are so cute.

    • (Michelle walks up to Annette Funicello)
      Michelle: Excuse me. Are you Annette "Funny-Cello?"
      Annette: Something like that.
