Episode Summary


The family is finally fed up with Danny's neuroticism.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Everythign was too exaggerted

    Stephanie would not have been watched every meal of every day to see if she chewed 22 or whatever times. If Danny really made everyone clean liek that they'd have convinced him to go in for therapy years before. I don't see this episode being real, though it's possible he was told to tone things down a little. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is very real, and yes, maybe danny has it, but here, they go over the edge - and then go the other way.moreless
  • The family is tired of Danny being obssesive with spring cleaning. What will they do to try to get him and Michelle to stop?

    Yes, it’s that time of year again! This day is the like Danny\'s Christmas. It\'s got your mops, brooms, and sponges. So what day is Danny\'s Christmas? Its spring cleaning! And this year he\'s worse than ever. He\'s got Michelle becoming and obsessive cleaner just like him, and gave Michelle her very first cleaning belt. So what will the family do to put this cleaning obsession to a stop? To stop this \"Psycho with a dust mop\" the family has a meeting, and Danny over hears what his family really thinks of him. He goes away for the day to think and comes back only to be a complete slob. The family apologizes, but wants Danny to find a balance between being a pig and an obsessive neat-freak, and help Michelle do the same.moreless
  • Donkeys or us

    I thought this was a good episode because it finally came out that Danny was over board with the cleaning thing. He had to find out how everybody felt. Nobody was brave enough to talk to him. Very immature for Joey and Jesse. The whole thing with Danny and the donkey was kind of silly but it got its point across. Once he got home it was good that they were able to help Danny realise that he can find a happen medium.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Joey: Grab your Brillo and your broom.
      Everyone else: Grab your Brillo and your broom.
      Joey: Danny is a Looney Toon.
      Everyone else: Danny is a Looney Toon.

    • Stephanie: She's totally brainwashed!
      Michelle: Everything should be washed. Now let's get busy!

    • Danny: I think maybe you need to me a little less like me and a little more like your sisters.
      Michelle: You want me to be a slob?

    • Kimmy: What's wrong with you people? How can you get this house any cleaner? It's already the cleanest house in America.
      Jesse: For the first time, Gibbler actually is makin' some sense.
      Kimmy: Had to happen sometime.

    • Danny: What an eye opener. (to Norman) You should've been in that closet with me. The people I love most in the world think I'm nothin' but a compulsive, neurotic, ramblin' jackass. No offense.
      (Norman makes a certain movement, which means "None taken, Danny.")
      Danny: How did I get so messed up? Guess it goes back to my mom. On my 5th birthday, she gave me my own set of vacuum cleaner attachments. She used to call me her special helper. Oh, my God. That's exactly what I'm doin' to Michelle. She's probably gonna grow up and write one of those tell-all books, "Daddy Cleanest". I gotta make some changes in my life.

    • Jesse: What if someone came along with chocolate fudge and put a little dot on the fridge? What would you say then, eh?
      Danny: I say, hey, it's cool.
      Joey: But what if someone less mature turned that little dot into a big smiley face?
      Michelle: Daddy, do something! Joey's making a mess.
      Danny: I'll do somethin'. I'll add some hair. There we go.

  • NOTES (3)

    • When Danny is on the hill thinking about his life, he mentions Claire, his mom (who last appeared in season 3's "Granny Tanny"), who apparently is revealed to have been a total neat freak. So at this point, it is found out out that Claire is the one who got Danny to become a neat freak, because he was her "special helper."

    • This is the only episode in which Michelle acts completely like a neat-freak.

    • This is the last time Danny is seen as a neat-freak.
