Jesse's beloved grandfather from Greece, Papouli, comes to San Francisco to visit the Tanners. His visit is highlighted by bonding with Jesse's nieces, D.J., Stephanie and especially young Michelle. One evening, Papouli promises Michelle that he will visit her first-grade class to teach them a Greek dance the next day. Sadly, the bonding activities foreshadow the very worst: That night, Papouli dies in his sleep. Jesse is devastated, believing he could have done something to save Papouli's life. However, the family has just as difficult a time convincing Michelle that Papouli is dead and will not be visiting her class after all. Eventually, both Jesse and Michelle help each other come to grips with the loss of Papouli and grieve in each other's arms. In the end, Michelle - with help from Danny and Jesse - does the only thing possible: Go to class, share the news about Papouli's death, and then teach a basic Greek dance to the class in celebration of his life.
