  • A clear sign...

    This is the clear sign of Full House is showing signs of getting old is when they bring in a new baby or in this case babies. The Tanner kids especially Michelle is older and they wanted to go back to the beginning where there was a baby for the cute factor.
  • I loved it!

    Rock the Cradle was an awesome episode of Full House. It was so funny. In this episode, Becky learns that she's pregnant. What a great season finale. This was actually a perfect season finale. Becky thinks that she's only gonna have one baby, but in the next episode, they learn that she's gonna have twins. Becky said that she doesn't want to know if it's a boy or a girl until they are born. My favorite part of the episode was when they were playing picture shrades. Big Bird! Ha ha ha Michelle was so funny. Don't have a cow! Ha ha ha!!moreless
  • on this episode of full house, becky tells everyone she's pregant and they are so surprised. when jesse find's out, he faints. becky tells him the news over a romantic candle light dinner. but he tells her about him and his band going on tour this summer.moreless

    in my objective, this was one of the funniest episodes on full house through out the season. i'd give it a million thumbs WAY UP!!!!!!!!!! my favorite part was when joey said, " well she's defitnetly iron deficient". when becky told everyone she was pregnant. if any people who have never seen the show before and they watch it, they'll fall in love with the show and they'd wanna watch it again and again. i just think everyone would just love this show and they will tell everyone and those people will watch it and will never stop watching it. that's it.moreless
  • Baby corn, Baby back ribs....

    I thought this episode was well written I loved how Becky tried to tell Jesse about her being pregnant. That was so funny and romantic. And when the family was in the living room and Jesse came down stairs they all thought Jesse knew and the conversation was so funny. Then the picture game was also funny. This was a very well written episode and really worth watching and rewatching.
  • Did Michelle rename them Bert & Ernie whent hey learned about the twins the next episode? :-)

    Some parents like to have speical names for their baby till they choose a name. Michelle deciding to call it Big Bird is just one of many awesome things in this heartwarming episode that shows how Jesse and Becky have grown int heir relationship, wanting to give for each other instead of only thinkign about what each wants to do. Yeah, Jesse's really excited about his band tour, but if Becky tells him right away that mighthave changed. Michelle's imaginary friend was funny, too. Stephanie isn't revealed to have had any, ironically, but that was right aroudn the time of Pam's death,a nd to her, Mr. bear is still kind of real anyway, so that's not mistake at all. The adults wisely don't refer to Mr. bEar as imaginary. (And besides, he's real, he's just full of stuffing.)moreless

  • NOTES (3)


    • "Driving Miss Cheesy", "Dances with Cheese", and "Home Provolone"

      When Jesse tries to guess what Rebecca is drawing during the picture charade game, he guesses "Driving Miss Cheesy", "Dances with Cheese", and "Home Provolone". These are "cheesy" references to the three movies "Driving Miss Daisy", "Dances with Wolves", and "Home Alone", respectively.
