Episode Summary

Michelle Rides Again (1)
Changes are on the horizon for the Tanner clan as this 2-part series finale begins. High school senior D.J. is planning to forego prom night, which sends Kimmy on a chase to find her best friend a date. Former business partners Jesse and Joey have the opportunity to appear on live television with professional wrestlers, but this is hardly the type of material they are used to working with. Stephanie is rehearsing a portion of Romeo and Juliet with a handsome classmate, but she doesn't understand why he always freezes up during the kissing scene. Lastly, Michelle is excited when Danny gives her permission to participate in a horseback riding competition, but the pressure to win results in a terrifying accident.moreless

    • Elizabeth's Mother: (to her daughter) Aww, there's my little champion! Now, listen, don't forget, after you win, we're going out for a big victory dinner.
      Danny: Michelle, after you win, we're going out for a big victory dinner......and a victory movie!
      Elizabeth's Mother: Now, Elizabeth, remember what I said to you about visualizing. Picture yourself jumping and clearing the hurdles.
      Danny: Michelle, you picture yourself jumping and clearing those exact same hurdles, only jumping higher and faster!
      Elizabeth's Mother: How dare you steal our visualizations! I paid good money for those!
      Michelle: Um, Dad, we really need to get ready for the contest.
      Elizabeth's Mother: (to Elizabeth) I'll see you in the winner's circle.
      Danny: Winner's circle. I guess you'll be there to congratulate us!
      (the adults leave)
      Michelle: (to Elizabeth) Riding used to be fun.
      Elizabeth: Yeah, before parents got involved.

    • Michelle: Dad, there's a jumping contest next week, and I really want to be in it. So does Peppermill. He practically begged me!
      Danny: I don't know, Michelle. You just started riding. In order to be in one of those contests, you'd need a whole formal riding outfit. It costs a lot of money.
      Michelle: I don't mind.

    • Woman: (waves a dollar bill in Danny's face) After you finish with that horse, could you comb my little girl's?
      Danny: Oh, I don't work here.
      Woman: Oh, I'm sorry. You just seemed to have the air of stable help.
      Danny: Well, in that case, I'll take the dollar. Thank you.

    • Joey: You know what, Jess? If we're gonna be on live TV with professional wrestlers, I've gotta go find my tights, because otherwise I'm gonna have to shave my legs!
      Jesse: God, I hope he finds them.

    • Michelle: What if I don't win?
      Danny: Don't worry, honey. Winning is not everything.
      Michelle: I'm glad to hear that.
      Danny: Yeah. As long as you beat that Elizabeth girl with the loudmouth mother.

    • Stephanie: We're rehearsing as scene from Romeo and Juliet, and I'm Juliet, and Andrew Berkley is my Romeo. He's a total babe!
      Becky: You know, I did that play in junior high. It wasn't a lot of fun, though. Well, I went to an all girls school. In fact, I was Romeo.

    • Stephanie: (to Becky, about the guy she's doing Romeo and Juliet with) The problem is, whenever we get to the kissing part, he just stops.
      Michelle: That's because you have dry lips.
      Stephanie: Excuse me, but I do not have dry lips!
      Michelle: Oh yeah? They look like two sun-dried gummy bears!
      Becky: Don't listen to her, Steph. Your lips aren't (stops, looks at Stephanie's lips) You might want to think about breathing through your nose.
      Stephanie: Chapstick! I need chapstick!

    • Andrew: (won't kiss Stephanie during rehearsal) And we kiss. End of scene.
      Michelle: I knew it. Dry lips!
      Andrew: Excuse me?
      Michelle: That's okay, I don't blame you. It's like kissing a cactus!

    • Danny: I don't know if you saw Michelle riding out there, but if she entered this competition, she could win.
      Elizabeth's Mother: Enjoy your little fantasy, because in reality, my Elizabeth wins this competition every year.
      Danny: Oh really? Well, not this year, because Michelle Tanner's gonna kick your butt!
      Elizabeth's Mother: (after a long pause) Come along, Elizabeth. This is why you don't go to public school! (they leave)
      Danny: Come on Michelle, we're going shopping.
      Michelle: But Dad, I thought you didn't want to spend all that money on new stuff.
      Danny: Yes, but that was before I was reminded how much money I'm saving by sending you to public school!
