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.
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.
Michelle: Here's Joey!
This line is a reference to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" when the anounncer (Ed McMahon) says "Here's Johnny"!!!
