  • Very informative episode

    I loved this episode for several reasons. They did portray Alzhiemers well. This episode brought tears to my eyes for 2 reasons. My dad passes from this horrible decease 4 years ago and now my mom has it. This showed how the mind gets confused and reality gets distorted. DJ helping out in the nursing home is a very noble thing to do. Many patients are put into nursing and are forgotten about. When people volunteer in real life it makes a lonely person have a ray of hope.moreless
  • Jesse and Rebecca have a bet. Rebecca bet that Jesse can't where a sympathy pad for more the 24 hours. D.J. voulenteers for an adopt a grandparent program and meets her adopted grandparent eddie. She takes Eddie to a dog show. What will happen?moreless

    Very funny. One of the best and most hilarious episodes ever. The pregnant man ( Jesse ) has a bet with Rebecca, the highlight of the show is the bet. Hillarious!!! I loved it. It was a must see full house episode. Awsome!! I even have it on DVD. This episode also has Eddie in it. D.J.'s adopted grandparent from the adopt a grandparent program. D.J. takes Eddie out of the home without perrmission and they go to a dog show in the Tanner's backyard. Stephany organized it to see who the smartest dog on the block was. But when it was comet's turn to show off his trick, he took one look at coacoa (Kimmy's dog) and went "Bow-wow-wow"moreless

    This was an pretty sad episode.Altough Stephaine gave Michelle an dog cookie while Coment the chocolate cookie.Which an mistake.moreless
  • DJ pulls a senior out of a nursing home to help her judge a dog show in their backyard. Eddie, the senior, then keeps calling DJ "Gloria" (his daughter's name). At the end, she finds out that Eddie is showing signs of Alzheimer's disease.moreless

    It was pretty sad that Eddie was caught by Alzheimer's. The episode shows that taking a senior out of a doctor's hand is a risk but it also tells you to be nice to people that age, especially when they call you a different name. Even though DJ was mad at the end of the episode, she still did the right thing.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Why a dumb pooper scooper as a prize to the winner of the contest instead of a legitimate prize for the owner, and perhaps a package of dog treats for the dog?

    • Stephanie should've looked at the treats and cookies carefully, because Comet cannot have chocolate chip cookies, because chocolate is extremely bad for dogs, and a liver snap doggy treat is not for humans to eat!

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Eddie: (looking at Jesse wearing his sympathy pad) Wow, a pregnant man! I really need to start getting out more!

    • Danny: Did you hear Eddie laughing at the dog show today? He just told you today was the best day he's had in a long time. You know, Deej, you can do a lot for a person just by being with them and caring about them.

    • Rebecca: I went through a lot of trouble to get that sympathy pad from my child birth coach! And if you really wanted to know what I was going through, you would wear it for more than five minutes! Unless of course... you're not man enough to be pregnant!
      Jesse: I'm as much man as you are!

    • Eddie: We gotta start takin' field trips to this house! In one afternoon, I saw a dog show, a forest ranger, and a pregnant man!
      Nurse: Eddie. You need a nap.

    • Rebecca: You slept like a baby all snuggled up with your blankey!
      Joey: You have a blankey?! How adorable!
      Jesse: It's not a blankey! It's a blanket! Ok... Mr. Blanket...
