Episode Summary


Danny and Jesse chaperone Michelle and her friends on a museum field trip.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode seriously jumped the shark--I mean, jumped the dinosaur!

    This episode is the worst episode ever in Full House. It's all about irresponsibility. Jesse was really not responsible and careless in this episode, and Michelle must be really naughty here, because she broke a dinosaur that's worth 4 million dollars! This episode's also totally out of character, because Jesse's usually responsible, but this time he didn't notice when Michelle and Denise were playing too close to the dinosaur! . ... . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • This wasn't officially a school function as it was on a Saturday & no school officials were present, so the school wouldn't even do anything. My story "Principal Stephanie and the Dinosaur" on www.fanfiction.net offers some hope, thoughmoreless

    This is one of those episodes tht irks people. That's why I list my story there as a way to help them see someone could have done something probbly D.J. and Stephanie combined. As another reviewer said, Jesse & Danny both learn lessons, but Michelle learns tht it's possible to play tag in a museum and if she plays the adults off each other, she can get awaay with it. Hence, D.J. andStephanie have tohave done a lot of work here - esp. D.J., or Michelle would have been a lot worse. And, we see some indicationt aht it was an uphill battle b/c of Disneyworld.moreless
  • Lessons to be learned

    In this episode it showed 2 different ways to raising kids. Danny is uptight and way to strict. It was straight line, no talking no fun. Yet Jesse was go have fun but no rules. And in the intrum an incedent happened in the museum. Though Danny's group didn't cause the incedent Danny had to learn that being all to strict isn't the right way to be either.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • There is no indication as to whether Steve got the card back from the child he sold it to or not, but it is without doubt that he succeeded, considering his determination, as he is captain of the wrestling team, and is up against a 9-year-old, who is very unlikely to even lay a scratch on him.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Danny: Aw, man. I can't handle this all by myself. 16 kids and one adult? Custer had better odds.

    • (after the dinosaur incident)
      Danny: Jesse? WHAT DID YOU DO?!
      Jesse: You have any glue?

    • Jesse: Michelle, tell your dad what you've learned today.
      Michelle: We learned about whales, mummies, and birds.
      Jesse: There, you see? Whales, mummies, and birds. See, Danny, you can still have fun and learn something.
      Michelle: But the best part was the escalator races.

    • Danny: Hey, Jess, tell me again. The foot bone's connected to what?
      Jesse: C'mon. Give it a rest. Okay? They said they could fix the dinosaur, and I promised to do volunteer work at the museum. For the next 10 weekends in a row, I'm gonna be combing out the woolly mammoth.
      Danny: You're lucky they didn't press charges. You know, I asked you to make sure that the kids follow the rules. But did you listen to me? No, not you. Not "Mr. Fun Boy"!
      Jesse: C'mon, Mr. Law and Order. I was just tryin' to let the kids have some fun. And so it got a little outta hand.
      Danny: A little outta hand? Jess, a little out of hand is cutting in line at the algae exhibit. You let the kids run totally wild. They knocked over a priceless dinosaur!
      Jesse: Oh, come on! It's not priceless! They said it was only worth about, like, 4,000,000 bucks.

    • Jesse: Why do we have to be quiet in here? Everything's dead!
      Danny: Your group seems to be alive and active.

    • Jesse: Rules were meant to be broken.
      Danny: Pinatas were meant to be broken.

    • Michelle: I broke the dinosaur!
      Denise: Man! There's nothin' left but his butt!
