The whole Tanner family is excited to greet DJ after her summer in Spain, especially sisters Stephanie and Michelle. However, the girls feel neglected when the "big surprise" DJ mentioned in post cards is her new boyfriend. Upset, they wander off and follow a youth choir onto a plane that they believe is headed across the bay to Oakland, California. Only after takeoff do they realize that they are actually headed across the Pacific to Auckland, New Zealand. Meanwhile, Joey is desperate to find the phone number of a woman he met. Written by

The Tanner girls' impromptu trip to New Zealand is inspired by actual events. In 1985, California native Michael Lewis, coming home from vacation in West Germany, reached Los Angeles International Airport. He intended to take a connecting flight to his home in Oakland, but accidentally followed a crowd of passengers to the Air New Zealand terminal (there, he told employees his destination, but he was misheard as saying "Auckland" and was given a boarding pass). Upon reaching the city, Air New Zealand officials promptly gave Lewis a return ticket to Los Angeles. See more
