But I don't want to be the bad guy!
17 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes. When we see Joey, he's usually the happy go lucky clown who ends up in as much trouble as the girls. But when Danny comes home one night to find that his girls had once again talked Joey into breaking the rules, he lays it right down in front of Joey - being a parents, you sometimes have to say no!

The next day, D. J. is an hour late getting home. Joey is frantic, calling everybody he knows to find out where she is. Scared, then relieved when she walks in, Joey gets really mad when D.J. brushes it off, saying it's no big deal. He grounds D.J. for the next weekend - which is when her karate tournament is...

Instead of a father/daughter talk at the end, we get a Joey/D.J. talk. It's pretty good and the adjusted punishment is pretty good. I really admire Danny for standing up for Joey.
