The house where DJ babysits Brian is the same house later used in Full House: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (1991) when Kimmy babysits Aaron, just with different wallpaper, decorations, and door/trim colors. See more »


When Steph recites DJ's new phone number, the laugh track begins before she finishes, and the audio of her saying the last couple digits goes mute. See more »


Danny Tanner: I would like to say something before I go.
[to friend #1]
Danny Tanner: You, sir, are a chimney. Not only are you ruining your own health, you are ruining the health of innocent people all around you.
[to second friend]
Danny Tanner: And you sir... you should take a drive through a car wash without your car. Nice meeting you both.

Mixed Communication
20 April 2014 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Though the main plot of this episode is DJ's babysitting to get her own phone line, the sub-plot is my favorite. Jesse and Becky have agreed to open and mutual conversation on all agreement, but when Jesse gets with his poker buddies, things look a little different. So, he calls Becky on the phone and "tells" her where they are going for Christmas. Danny, joining the poker game, can't help but to tell the two friends what he thinks about them.

Meanwhile, D.J. takes care of a brat who thinks he rules the roost. Then Kimmy comes over and makes things more difficult for her.

My favorite scene of the entire episode is Becky's showing up after she get's Jesse's heart-felt message.
