Did You Know?


Jesse ask where all the girls at the party were when he was 12. 12 year olds are in the 7th grade. 7th grade is considered junior high. However, it is likely that Jesse was just generalizing that the girls were twelve since the party is for Kimmy's twelfth birthday. He also might have been interested in younger girls when he was twelve. See more »


Danny Tanner: That was my boss. He wants me down at the station. He said he's got some good news. Well, actually he said he's got some big news. That could be bad news. Why didn't he say? Why didn't I ask him? I'll worry on the way.

And another cast member has officially joined the Full House cast this season. Rebecca Donaldson is only a supporting character, but by next season I believe she is in the credits. As you know, Rebecca is the future wife of Jesse. She is a wonderful character and definitely has a fun part to play! She meets Jesse and sparks automatically fly for Jesse. She is so different from what we've always seen Jesse date that it's a bit shocking to see the chemistry they have for each other.

On another note, D. J. and Kimmie's relationship intensifies and we'll see more of Kimmie this season. She's still a supporting character, but that too will change in future seasons. The episode defines the relationship the two girls have really well. Kimmie can be pretty mean sometimes, and D. J.'s hurt by her words often.
