Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The Tanner family are planning a family picnic.But when Jesse can't think of a song to write,he decides not to go.

    This episode was enjoyable.The episode is about when the Tanner family planned a picnic.Danny told everyone what they were going to do in the picnic games.Michelle and Jesse were in the balloon race,Stephanie and DJ were in the three-legged race,and Joey was in the pie eating contest.Joey and Becky were practicing for the contest.Jesse came home and told everyone about the fact that he had to write a song.He's been having trouble with it,so at the day of the picnic,he decided not to go.The family was upset,but they went without him anyway.Later that day,Jesse went to the cafe,and saw a man who looked like Elvis.He talked to him,and learned that being with family is more important.The Tanner family were stuck when there was a problem with the van.Jesse rode his motorcycle up to them,and figured out what was wrong with the van.My favorite part was when Jesse came up with a song,and sang it at the end of the episode.moreless
  • "Well since my baby left me"

    Hesse again looses his temper with the family. He does that quite often. But frustrated with not making any progress on his song he takes off on his bike. Making a stop at a roadside food joint he runs into an Elvis impersonator who makes him realise how important his family is. Changing his mind he heads off towards the reunion apot just in the nick of time as he finds the Tanners broken down on the side of the road. The funniest part of this episode is when Kimmy took her shoes off in the van.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • D.J.: Dad, haven't you polished that long enough? You're starting to wear off the inscription.
      Danny: But I'm just so darn proud of you guys. It was almost a total sweep. We took the balloon relay and the 3-legged race. Too bad about the Pie-Eating Contest, huh?
      Rebecca: Danny, we're really sorry we let ya down.
      Joey: Hey, who'da known when Aunt Phyllis took out her dentures like that that she could gum down a pie that fast?

    • Danny: JOEY! As the only winner from our family last year, we are counting on you to repeat as champion in the Pie-Eating Contest.
      Joey: (booming voice) I am the world's greatest pie eater! Nobody can touch me! And, Phyllis, if you're out there doin' your neddlepoint, know this: I will destroy YOU!!!

    • Danny: (looks inside the car hood) Oh, man. No wonder we broke down. It's filthy under here.

    • Jesse: See, I've got twins coming. And I want them to be proud of their old man, you know? I want them to be able to see platinum records on the wall.
      Guy in Bar: Babies don't care about platinum records. They care that someone's there to love them, to hug and kiss them. Shame on you for snapping at your family like that, and over a picnic?
      Jesse: Yeah, well, it's worse than that. I ended up breaking a promise to my 4-year-old niece.
      Guy in Bar: I really wish you hadn't told me that. You want to be a success? Start by being a good husband. A good uncle, a good friend. After that, the rest is just gravy.

    • Michelle: Something stinks!
      Rebecca: Well, we're in the woods, honey. It's probably a skunk.
      D.J.: I know that smell. Kimmy, put your shoes back on.
      (everyone's grossed out)
      Joey: Oh, gimme a break!

    • Michelle: Daddy, are we there yet?
      Danny: No, honey, we're not at the motel yet.
      Michelle: When will we be there?
      Everyone: When we get there.
      Michelle: I was just asking. Don't have a cow.
      Joey: I think what Michelle's trying to say is, she has to go to the bathroom.
      Michelle: No, I don't.
      Joey: All right, I do. Please, Danny! I'm dyin'!
      Danny: Joey, didn't I say not to drink that thermos of tang?
      Joey: But, Danny.
      Danny: Hey, don't make me come back there!

    • Jesse: Come on, Michelle. Can't you forgive your Uncle Jesse?
      Michelle: Your name is Uncle Meanie.
      Jesse: Still mad at me, huh?
      Michelle: Duh.
      Jesse: Well, I deserve a "duh". I'm sorry I let you down, kid.
      Michelle: You yelled, and you broke a promise.
      Jesse: Well, if it makes you feel better, I felt terrible all day.
      Michelle: That helps a little.
      Jesse: All right. Then how about this? You and I, we're gonna enter that balloon race, and we're gonna win, and we're gonna have the most fun anybody ever had in our whole life. How d'ya like that?
      Michelle: That helps a lot.

    • "A Little More Love"

      Jesse: Sometimes you lose your place...
      And all you're searching after
      Is right before your face.
      Ridin' on your high horse.
      Believing your own lies.
      Don'tcha know that everyone is kneeling,
      We're all the same size.
      Jesse: Just a little more love is all we're hopin' for.
      Just a little more peace is all we need.
      Take away the colors.
      Don't you understand?
      It all breaks down to the heart of the matter.
      All one, think how strong we'd be
      if you and me give a little more love.
      Break it down!
      (he and one of the Rippers perform a drum solo)
      Jesse: Take away the colors.
      Don't you understand?
      It all breaks down.
      It all breaks down to the heart, child!
      Background Singers: All of the one...
      All one...
      Jesse: Ooh! All one, think how strong we'd be
      if you and me give a little more love.
      It ain't that tough to give a little more love.
      Take away the colors.
      Don't you understand
      how strong we'd be,
      if you and me give a little more love!
      Background Singer: Love, looooooooove!

    • Jesse: This is my 1 shot at a record deal.
      Michelle: But you're my partner in the balloon race.
      Jesse: Well, get another partner.
      Michelle: But you promised.
      Jesse: Michelle, I can't.
      Michelle: But you promised.
      Jesse: Michelle, I hafta write my song.
      Michelle: But you promised!
      Jesse: Well, then I'm gonna break my promise! I'm not goin' to the stupid picnic! So leave me alone! (walks out)
      Rebecca Jess...
      Michelle: Uncle Jesse yelled at me.
      Danny: Oh, Michelle, I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it. Come on, we're still gonna have fun at the family picnic.
      Michelle: Uncle Jesse's not nice anymore.
