Episode Summary


Jesse enters his twins in a contest against Rebecca's cousin's daughters.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The Name Fits

    Jesse showed a lot a patience in not beating the crap out of Rebecca's cousin Dick whose name fits him. His wife Donna is an idiot who laughs and smiles every time Dick insults Jesse. It is no surprise that their twins are spoiled brats. This episode teaches you that you have to put up with obnoxious family members but don't have to like them.
  • Money can buy a lot of things but it can't buy happiness. The happiness that Jesse and Becky share. This is proven to both of them when Becky's rich cousin comes into town.moreless

    This was a great episode. Here is a summary of what happened: Becky's snobby millionaire cousin Dick Donaldson has arrived in town from Nebraska with his wife Donna and twin daughters Debbie and Darla. They have come to town to attend a convention for twins, where a "favorite twins" contest will take place. As soon as Dick arrives, he and Jesse start insulting each other. Jesse can't stand Dick because of Dick's snobby attitude. Jesse tells Dick that if he were Dick's mechanic, Dick would be having brake problems. Dick tells Jesse that it was a smart move when he decided not to enter Nicky and Alex in the favorite twins contest and tells Jesse that Nicky and Alex shouldn't be put through that kind of rejection. That remark pushes Jesse too far, and he decides to enter Nicky and Alex in the contest after all. Becky doesn't like the fact that the reason why Jesse entered Nicky and Alex in the contest is because Jesse is on a mission to take Dick down a few pegs. Nicky and Alex beat Debbie and Darla, and Dick is absolutely stunned that his daughters finished in second place instead of winning. A pair of muscle bound twins are forced to escort Dick out of the building. Becky finally admits to Jesse that Dick is a snobby jerk who did not deserve to win. I can't wait to see this episode again on TV!moreless

    I thought this was a good episode. It showed some stregnth and backbone for Jesse stoof up to Becky's goofy cousin. It showed that you can be proud of your children but don't have to belittle others in the process. The boys were so cute in their elvis costumes.It was a pretty silly story line with Stephanie and the boy twins.My favortie part was when Jesse ordered the lobster and then said he didn't even like lobster.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When everyone was at the contest, Joey said to Michelle, "Hey, there's your cousins" (Darla and Debbie). But the fact is, they aren't Michelle's cousins in any way. Darla and Debbie father is Rebecca's cousin, so the girls are the daughters of her cousin, which does not involve Michelle at all. If anything, the twin girls are Nicky and Alex's second cousins on their mother's side.

    • "Darla: The Majesty of America.
      Debbie: The Beauty of the sea.
      Darla: The Seven wonders of the world are
      Debbie: not as cute as we.
      Darla: Are."

      That doesn't make any sense! Debbie and Darla (whether separate or put together) can't be as cute as the majesty of America, the beauty of the sea, or any of the 7 wonders of the world (whether separate or put together)! No wonder those two lost!

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Rebecca: Honey, listen. I have somethin' to tell you, but you have to promise not to whine.
      Jesse: I never whine.
      Rebecca: My cousin Dick and his wife Donna are in from Nebraska.
      Jesse: Oh, those rich snobs?!
      Rebecca: You're whining.
      Jesse: No, I'm not. I'm just voicing a manly complaint.
      Rebecca: They brought their twins Debbie and Darla for the contest at the expo. And we're having dinner with them tonight.
      Jesse: Aw, jeez, I hafta eat with 'em, too?! All right, that was a whine. That was a whine. Yeah.

    • Michelle: So, what do you guys wanna do?
      Debbie: Do you have a TV? A VCR? A laser disc player?
      Darla: Anything?
      Michelle: I have Mr. Potato Head.
      Darla and Debbie: Boring!

    • Donna: Who's this little girl?
      Rebecca: Oh, this is Danny's daughter Michelle. Michelle, say hi to Dick, Donna, Debbie, and Darla.
      Michelle: Hi, Dick and...all you other 'D' people.

    • Michelle: (watches the Donaldson twins play with their video game consoles) When can I have a turn?
      Debbie: When you buy one.
      Michelle: Boy, is this gonna be a fun night.

    • Joey: Oh, Donna, I hope you don't mind. I made the girls some ice cream sundaes.
      Donna: Oh, not at all. Girls, what do you say?
      Darla: They would've been better with hot fudge.
      Joey: Oh, you're very welcome. Always a pleasure.

    • Joey: Oh boy, girls, you do love fresh baked cookies, don't you?
      Debbie: We prefer store-bought.

    • Jesse: Man, that was good eatin. I'm so full, I'm sweatin' butta!
      Dick: I hope you didn't stain your best T-shirt.

    • Jesse: Hey, Dick. Let's lay the cards out on the table pal. You don't like me, do you?
      Dick: Well, I'd like you as an acquaintance. I'd like you as a waiter. I'd even like you as a mechanic, but as a cousin, well, let's just say we always imagined Rebecca with someone... better.
      Jesse: Let me tell you somethin'. I'm not your acquaintance. And I'm not your waiter. And if I were your mechanic, you'd be having brake problems. Small joke.
      Dick: Well, I guess we know where we stand.
      Jesse: Yes. I guess we know.
      Dick: See ya at the expo. Oh, and smart move not entering the twins contest. I mean, why put your kids through that kinda rejection?
      Jesse: Rejection? All right, now you've pushed me too far. Y'know what? I'm gonna enter my twins in that contest, and they're gonna make you wish you never left Nebraska, pal.
      Dick: (laughs nervously) Looks like somebody had their lobster bib on a little too tight. Huh? (laughs seriously) Small joke.
      (he heads out the door)
      Jesse: Now, here's a big joke for ya. I don't even like lobster!
      (he slams the door)

    • Dick: Small joke.
      Jesse: Yeah, well, you know what they said: Small joke, small mind.

    • Donna: We know you're a struggling musician.
      Rebecca: Oh no, no, Jesse has been very successful. And do you know he had a #1 record in Japan?
      Dick: Well, if we ever have dinner in Japan, it will be your treat.

    • Michelle: Nicky and Alex were so adorable.
      Joey: You must be pretty darn proud. Huh, Bec?
      Rebecca: Oh, yeah. Having twin Elvis impersonators. Every mother's dream.

    • Jesse: I just wanted to prove to them that even though I can't buy you a a big house or a new car every year that we have really great kids.
      Rebecca: What are you talking about?
      Jesse: Becky, if you had a choice all over again would you have married Doyce Plunk?
      Rebecca: Rebecca Plunk?
