Uncle Jesse says that it is important to be nice to people.So Stephanie apologizes to Walter and he decides that she is his girlfriend. Stephanie says she is his "Secret girlfriend" rather than rejecting him outright and hurting his feelings. Then the next day Stephanie's friends come over to work on a school project. But Walter comes over just before and her friends see her holding his hand and leading him but but of course her friends take that the wrong way and call her Mrs Duck-Face.

Going Quackers
11 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another memorable episode for me. Stephanie comes home from school and tells Uncle Jesse and Joey all about her day, then let's it slip that she was punished. Jesse makes her tell the whole sordid story

  • about how she and her friends made fun of Walter by treating him like

a duck. Jesse is very upset with her and makes her call Walter and apologize. But Walter mistakes her apology as something else. Things get a bit messy.

The side-story is too silly to really get into. Jesse is going to be on Danny's show, but they get into an argument on live television.

Naturally, the story of Walter are my favorite. Thus begins another supporting character on the show.
