Episode Summary

EDIT
As the new host of a couples game show, Joey enlists the help of Jesse, Rebecca, D.J., Steve, Danny, and Vicky to be the contestants for a trial run episode. When Vicky can't make it, Danny is paired with the producer's assistant Estelle. Juicier and more entertaining television is sought by causing the couples to argue in front of the camera, but the fun and games are over when, upon Vicky's return, she and Danny make a devastating decision about their engagement.moreless

  • A fine mix of humor and drama.

    9.9
    Joey is appointed host of a new show called "The Perfect Couple." He gets Steve and DJ (dating couple,) Danny and Vicki (engaged couple,) and Jesse and Rebecca (married couple.) The show is very funny; Joey's hair and teeth are humorously fake, just like his name - "Joe Stone." DJ and Steve are having trouble with the questions; DJ establishes that the two barely know each other, until Steve remarks that their relationship is based off new things. They leave the show early. Danny, meanwhile, had to pair up with a strange woman named Estelle, since Vicki couldn't make it. The two seem to be reading each other's minds (much to Danny's dismay.) Lastly, Jesse and Becki are having problems. Jesse is upset that Becki thinks he is predictable. The dilemma proves to be funny in the end. Danny and Estelle win the show, while Danny and Vicki break up at the end of the episode.moreless
  • They broke up on my birthday. :(

    I liked the relationship between Vicky and Danny. And then they break up on my birthday. I was born on December 14th, 1993 and that is the exact day this episode aired. This is a really sad episode and I couldn't believe it aired on my birthday. So anyway, this episode was really good because I loved the relationship game and all the relationships. I thought this episode was really good, sad, and funny. Another great episode for Full House. Now I have to keep typing to make it to one hundred words. Almost there. So close. And I am there.moreless

    First episode with DJ's shorter hair, but no attention is called to it. Steve and DJ find they barely know each other. I thought that might lead to their break-up; their relationship at times seemed like nothing but hugs and kisses and saying "I love you" without really knowing what it means. Interesting development there, and leading to their breakup later in the season. Jesse and Becky's interactions are entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time; a kind of realistic picture on marriage and how it works. Joey did good by quitting doing that show; good thing it never aired, I don't think. Good character development on his part. I was so sad to see Danny and Vicki break up. But I don't know how they could last this long, considering how they started. They seemed to be good for each other, though. And at the end when he is consoled by the girls, and he says "I really wanted her to be here, and you girls can have a mom again". And then DJ was the one who said they could manage fine on their own. Interesting, since it's hard to imagine Vicki taking on DJ's parent role with Michelle.moreless
  • really strange...

    8.0
    It was an okay episode I guess. The game show part was weird...Joey just seemed out of character playing the game show host and not like himself at all. I didn't like how he kept making everyone fight. It was still a cute episode overall though. It was funny how Estelle knew everything about Danny even though they had never met, and it was even more funny how Steve didn't know DJ as well as he thought. He thought she kissed like a, was it flounder? She thought he would say angel fish and he didn't think tropical fish were allowed! Haha! This episode was overall another good laugh from the Full House gang.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Michelle takes Alex's pajamas from Stephanie you can clearly see she is looking and talking to Nicky but in the next shot when you see the twins they switched places.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Vicky: I just don't see any other way for us, I mean, unless you move to New York.
      Danny: You know I can't do that. I can't uproot my family. If it was just me, I'd be there in a second, but everything that's important to me is right here in San Francisco. (pauses) Everything except you.

    • Michelle: Will a tuna melt cheer you up?
      Danny: Well, usually that's my idea of a Happy Meal, but...to tell you the truth, girls, I'm miserable.

    • Danny: Vicky, I wanted to sit down with you this weekend and finally set a wedding date. When are we going to start our lives together?
      Vicky: Oh...well, this does complicate things. I guess we'll just have to wait a little longer.
      Danny: I--I can't do that. Vicky, it hurts too much, being apart all the time.

    • Danny: Vicky, I can't ask you to give up your dream...so I guess I'm going to have to give up mine.
      Vicky: Are you saying it's over?
      Danny: Yeah...I guess I am.
      Vicky: I really do love you!
      Danny: I love you, too. But I guess that's not enough, is it?

  • NOTES (2)

    • Other than the characters that have become regulars (particularly Michelle, Rebecca, and Steve), Vicky was the longest recurring character to be on the show.

    • Vicky departs the series in this episode, thus making this a break-up between Danny and Vicky, and their marriage being cancelled.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Perfect Couple

      The game show The Perfect Couple is an allusion to The Newlywed Game which first ran during the 1960s. It had the same premise, comparing the answers of newlyweds. The set used on this episode is even similar to the sets used on The Newlywed Game.
