Episode Summary


Joey is hired to open for Wayne Newton in Las Vegas.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode is about Joey, Jesse, Danny, D.J, and Stephanie going to Vegas.

    Joey gets a call from his agent who says A Cimp has lice.

    I think Wayne Newton and the Chimp are the same. Anyway, after he hangs up, he says, \"Danny, Jess, great new! In Vegas, one of the chimps got hair lice!\" And Jesse says, \"And that\'s great, why?\" Sarcastically. Joey finishes saying,\"I replaced him and I am going to Vegas!\".Michelle is confused and askes what is Vegas?

    DJ and Stephanie has an idea and calls Joey\'s Dad(Who doesn\'t get along with him) and tells him they\'re A couple \"Personnal secretaries, Janet Aguse and Barbie Dollanbear\" and Joey said he wanted his Dad to come. In the end, Joey and his Dad reunite with relationship. Joey learns his dad taught him Popeyes\' laugh.moreless
  • Banana's anyone?

    I thought this was an excellent episode. First of all it was really fun to see Wayne Newton perform. It was also great to see Joey get a break with his comedy. The whole plot line of the girls calling Joey's dad was a great storyline. the innocense of youth. The girls had no idea that Joey and his dad didn't get along. But as they say the end justified the means. It all worked out and Joey and his dad made up.moreless
  • Nice to see them back together a little

    It was nice to see Joey and his dad reconcile a little. However, nothing much really ever came of this as we don't hear about them again; but maybe that's understandable. If there's too much pain from reliving the past, they might have chosen to reconcile and then agree to go their separate ways.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Joey: Dad, you saw the show? You heard all those jokes I made about you, huh?
      Colonel Gladstone: Some of them were actually funny.
      Joey: You laughed?
      Colonel Gladstone: I will...later.

    • Colonel Gladstone: I thought about what you said. Even though your mother and I were divorced, I should have been around more when you were growing up. Joseph, it wasn't easy being stationed in some God forsaken country and getting monthly reports that you were "goofing off" and "showing a complete lack of disipline." When I came home, I thought you needed structure and authority, not a pal.
      Joey: I could have used a pal.
      Colonel Gladstone: Me too. I think we could have been great buddies. After all, you do have my sense of humor.
      Joey: Uh, no disrespect intended, Dad, but you aren't exactly Mr. Funny Pants.
      Colonel Gladstone: That's not true. Don't you remember when you were three and had chicken pox? We watched cartoons for two weeks.
      Joey: You watched cartoons?
      Colonel Gladstone: Who do you think taught you how to do Popeye?

    • Colonel Gladstone: Nice to meet you son. Put on a tie.
      Jesse: Nice to meet you, sir. No.

    • Michelle: Joey's opening a fig newton in Vegas....and the chimps have lice!
      Stephanie: I think you're a little mixed up.
      Michelle: I'm a lot mixed up.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Show Title:: "Viva Las Joey"
      A play on the Elvis song titled: "Viva Las Vegas". We actually hear Jesse mention this song over the seasons because of his Elvis obsession.
