Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When all the kids audition for the school play, they all sing "Yankee Doodle," the traditional patriotic song (Yankee Doodle came to town, riding on a pony...), but when Derek performs in the play itself, he sings "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy" by George M. Cohen.

    • When Jesse and Joey are upstairs talking to Michelle, Jesse says, "Excuse me, Michelle," and smacks Joey's head lightly. But if you look closely at it, you can see that Jesse didn't hit Joey's head at all even though there was a sound for it.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Danny: I was just finishing up giving the boys their bath.
      Rebecca: Well, Danny, I was gonna give them their bath.
      Danny: Oh, don't worry about it. It's no problem.
      Rebecca: Actually, Danny, it is a problem. All this week, every time I've gone to do something with the boys, you've already done it. I mean, I know you're only trying to help, but these moments are really precious. I mean, they're only this young for so long.
      Danny: Boy, don't I know it.

    • Jesse: You think we're bein' unfair, don'tcha?
      Michelle: Right.
      Jesse: Well, we think you're bein' unfair.
      Joey: Michelle, everyone in that play is workin' very hard. Now, if we don't have a Statue of Liberty, you're letting all the other kids down. Is that what you want?
      Michelle: No. I wanna be Yankee Doodle, because Stephanie and D.J. were Yankee Doodle, and I wanna be Yankee Doodle, too.
      Joey: Well, Michelle, you can't always get what you want in life. Hey, when I was a little boy, I wanted to be Fred Flintstone, but, heck, I had too many toes!

    • Michelle: My arm is getting bored. I don't want to be the Statue of Liberty.
      Joey: (pulling Jesse aside) Jess, can't we just write her a song and dance number or something?
      Jesse: No, come on, Joey, we can't spoil her like that. She's gotta learn how to be a team player. (to Michelle) Now, sweetheart, listen. If you don't want to be Lady Liberty, then I suggest you go sit down over there while the rest of us rehearse, okay?
      Michelle: Fine. (hands him torch and walks off stage)

    • Jesse: Hi, peanut. (Michelle walks to her bed) Oh, I get it. You're not talkin' to us.
      Joey: Michelle, are you not talkin' to us? (Michelle nods) Yeah, she's not talkin' to us.
      Jesse: All right. All that are ticked off at Uncle Jesse and Joey, say "aye".
      Michelle: Aye. (Jesse smiles) You tricked me.

    • Derek: Excuse me, but I didn't get a chance to try out.
      Joey: Oh, I'm sorry, hon, we didn't see you there.
      Derek: Oh, that's okay. I tend to blend in with my surroundings.

    • Stephanie: One, two, one, two, one, two, keep those feet moving, people! And one, two, one, two, one, two--
      Denise: Haven't you ever heard of three?

    • Denise: You know, your sister is getting on my last nerve.
      Michelle: Try living with her!

    • Danny: Hey, honey! How's the star of the school play doing?
      Michelle: Why don't you go to his house and asked him?
      Danny: What happened?
      Stephanie: Uncle Jesse and Joey picked somebody else.
      Danny: What?
      Joey: Well, Michelle was great, but this other kid, Derek, was greater.
      Jesse: Listen, Michelle, I'm sorry if we hurt your feelings, but we have to be fair.
      Michelle: Why?

    • Jesse: Ok, Aaron has the part of George Washington.
      Aaron: Do I have the biggest part?
      Jesse: No, but you have the biggest mouth.

    • Michelle: Wait, is he calling the hat macaroni or the feather?
      Stephanie: The feather.
      Michelle: Then what does he call the hat?
      Stephanie: I don't know Michelle.
      Michelle: He must call it something.
      Stephanie: Bob, Michelle, he calls it Bob.
      Michelle: Should I say stuck a feather in his Bob?
      Stephanie Just sing it the way you learned it, huh?
