  • In http://www.tv.com/users/dtf955/profile.php?fpage=jnl_entry.php&board=18687&topic=59633 iit shows Steph was indeed Yankee Doodle from how little we see of characters' lives - and was doubtlessly much better

    It's not a bad thing to want to be like your sisters - unless you're just not that good. We know Stephanie was aa rare talent - she almost went to dance school. In a way, you can't blame Michelle for being upset she coudln't make it - but *why* she was upset was the problem with this episode. She wasn't sad because she wasn't as good - if she was, this episode would teach a greaat lesson about how it's okay to not be as good because she's special no matter what. (As the book Ballet Surprise does; Michelle doesn't sulk, she improvises so she can still do something.) Int his episode, Michelle's upset becasue she feels Jesse and Joey should have picked her, and she's not wiling to accept anything else than being yankee Doodle. She expects favoritism, and Jesse and Joey sort of mess up by promising she can be, and making it seem like they will favor her. Only her deciding to let Derek be Yankee Doodle and encouraging him when he has stage fright saves this one.
