The way we are
9 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this is an episode that establishes some of the personalities of the characters that will persist throughout the eight-run season:

1. Danny is a neat freak. Finally! We see the true Danny Tanner beginning in this episode. His OCS is shown big-time in this episode.

2. Jesse's love for Elvis is established.

In this episode, we the family discovers Jesse's secret then go to watch him perform live. Meanwhile, Joey and Danny are in the middle of a heated conversation over some money Joey borrowed. Their comedy of fighting over Joey taking the money was a riot!

Yes indeed, a very character-establishing episode!
