Episode Summary

While Michelle is delighted to be playing on Coach Joey's soccer team, it is evident that she is not the natural athlete that her older sisters were at her age. Determined to see his little girl succeed, Danny pushes Michelle to practice her skills, only to cause further problems when Michelle unintentionally scores the winning goal for the other team.moreless

  • I didn't like it. i didn't feel sorry for Michelle, who would? I think Michelle is a pointless brat.

    I didn't like this episode at all. I don't really see why they made an episode on Michelle kicking the wrong goal, it happens all the time. Now if Stephanie kicked the wrong goal, I would feel sorry for her. But when Michelle did it, I just laughed and thought, how stupid is she. I have never liked Michelle. This is like the 24th episode they made all based on her. The show would be a lot better without her.moreless
  • good

    Michelle tries to be a good soccer player but things go wrong when she accidentally scores the winning goal on the opposing team. She is ostracized by the team and wants to quit. Will she? Stephanie makes a video about the Tanner family.

    Good episode. Stephanie's final video about the family was funny, and the plot is pretty relatable, because I am sure in real life people have done what Michelle ended up doing in this episode. Pretty good episode. Not the best of the series or anything but it is pretty decent, so my final grade is a B- or somoreless
  • I loved it!

    Wrong Way Tanner was a really great episode of Full House. It was hilarious. Stephanie's video for her school about the Tanners is so hilarious! I was laughing so hard! Ha ha ha ha ha! Michelle scores a point for the opposite soccer team and her teammates are mad at her. She wants to quit soccer, but then later on in the episode, she want to play again. It was funny when Becky was singing Bad Boys bad boys, wat'cha gonna do! That was so funny! It was also funny when Jesse was talking to his hair! Ha ha ha!moreless
  • One of thsoe episode over several weeks

    The span of timeit would take for this to occur would mean an episode or two likely occurs during it. This is common in families, where things don't always happen within a day or two. It's not only a good lesson in that, it's a good lesson in failure and trying again, plus it has that hilarious tape Steph does.
  • Smile your on candid camera

    I thought this episode was really good. I loved it when Steph was video taping around the house and found Becky singing and Jesse talking to his hair. It was also a lesson to parents who have kids playing on teams to let the coaches do their jobs and stay out of it. Sometimes a parent can make a kid more nervous and make mistakes. It was good when they got Michelle to laugh at her mistake of making a goal for another team.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Doesn't scoring a goal for an opposing team not count? Doing it the way it's shown in this episode is unfair to both teams.

    • In this episode, Michelle is really trying hard to emulate her older sisters, who were both more natural athletes than she. In Season 6's "The Play's the Thing," Michelle went through a similar dilemma--trying to live up to the "Tanner girl legacy" and score the role of Yankee Doodle in the first grade play.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nicky: "Bad Boys".
      Alex: "Bad Boys".
      Rebecca: Yeah, that's us. Gladys Knight and the Pip-Squeaks.

    • Aaron: Are you gonna buy us pizza after the game? Or are you too cheap?
      Derek: Hey, hey, hey, hey. He shouldn't have to feed us. He's already donated his time.
      Joey: Well, thank you, Derek! And what position would you like to play?
      Derek: Well, I've always heard that the goalies get the babes.

    • D.J.: Steve, I'm so sorry about your sweater.
      Steve: Hey, Deej, it's okay. I still have the sleeves. My mom can use 'em as leg warmers.

    • Danny: Michelle, is something wrong with your leg?
      Michelle: Yeah. I just broke it. Now I'll never be able to play soccer again.

    • Michelle: You're right, Uncle Jesse. All I did was score it in the wrong goal. It's not like I talked to my hair.
