Season 1, Episode 17, “Danny’s Very First Date”

The Honeybees are having a meeting in the Full House.  Joey performs his duties as honorary Queen Bee by making lots of lame bee puns and fulfilling the requests of Linda, the fine ass Hive Mother.  The Honeybees are having a honey sale and whoever sells the most wins a bike.  Naturally, as soon as Stephanie sees the bike she gets right on it and tries to ride away.  Why are all the jokes on this show centered around the cast being pushy and inconsiderate?  They should call this show Obnoxious House, or  House Lacking in Social Graces.

DJ, a former Honeybee, gives the kids a pep talk about selling honey and the group celebrate capitalism by chanting “sell!”  Meanwhile, Jesse’s mom sends him a subplot in the form of a tree house for Michelle that he has to assemble.  Danny comes home and the Uncles can see his emerging boner when he hears that Linda is in the living room.  He laments his dead wife for like the ten millionth time but the Uncles convince him that it really is time for him to start dating again.

Danny fumbles his way through asking Linda out but she totally wants it anyway and offers to buy him dinner and take him out to an art exhibit.

DJ is giving Stephanie a pep talk about how to sell honey when Danny comes in and tries to gently break the news to his daughters that he’s about to go out and pound their Hive Mothers vag all night long.  DJ gets all pissed off and Stephanie gets confused and so Danny decides he has to cancel the date.

The Uncles walk in on Danny canceling his date and they talk him into calling Linda back.  As he’s doing so, the girls walk in and tell him that they’re so grateful for him canceling his date that they want to take him out for ice cream.  Danny immediately gives in to this emotional manipulation and cancels the date yet again.

The Uncles attempt to assemble the tree house and hilarity ensues.  DJ and Stephanie enter the scene and the Uncles try to talk them into letting their dad go out and get laid for the first time in a year.  Joey shares an anecdote about his parents getting divorced and how he had to learn to stop being such a shithead about his mom dating and the girls agree to tell Danny that it’s ok.  Adding levity to such an emotional scene, Jesse gets stuck in the tree house.

So the kids and Danny have a talk in Danny’s room about how Danny still loves their dead mom and he tells them about how they agreed to see other people in the event of one of their untimely deaths.  Naturally, the music comes on.

The kids finally agree to quit being such assholes but Danny doesn’t think that he can call the date back on because he already broke it twice so he has DJ call Linda for him.

The date is back on and the Uncles console Danny about his outfit while Linda waits downstairs.  For some reason Jesse is eating fried chicken in this scene.

There is a brief sequence in which each of the Uncles dresses Danny up to look like them and then Danny goes back to what he was originally wearing.

Fuck, man, first he can’t even ask her out properly, then he cancels the date twice, then he makes her wait downstairs while he completely changes his whole get up 3 times?  She must really be desperate for that Danny Tanner schlong to put up with all that!  Once Danny finally comes downstairs it’s clear that it doesn’t matter what he wears because Linda shows up sporting a snuggie.

After Danny and Linda leave, the Uncles introduce Michelle to her new tree house but she’d rather play with a dish rag.  How is that even a tree house?  It’s a jungle gym.  Also, I bet you ten million bucks that Linda is never mentioned again on the show.  And finally, we never find out if Stephanie wins that bike.

Firsts:  Linda, Danny’s bedroom

    i love the snuggie reference- good job

    “Adding levity to such an emotional scene, Jesse gets stuck in the tree house.”

    Very clever misdirection on that one! I laughed for about a solid minute and woke up my wife.

    You had one a few reviews ago that got me really hard too, Joey talking to girls with his tongue stuck in a bottle and the bottle stuck in a chair.

    the snuggie reference was perfect

    Liked by 1 person

  6. Every time the Honeybees are mentioned on this site, I try to come up with a way to tie them into those bee outfits they used to wear on the first season of SNL. And I always fail. I don’t know what my deal is.


    • LisaIhatefreakinbobsaget says:

      Hey Jimmy. Maybe SNL bees aren’t for you. Perhaps the spanish speaking bee on the Simpson’s instead? That’s usually the 1st bee that comes to my mind when any bee reference is made. Try it. Maybe it’ll work for you.


  7. PuppetDoctor says:

    Gosh that “snuggie” line really got me laughing hard. That outfit looks even terrible for the 1980s.


  8. Nicky says:

    fine ass –> fine-ass
    Hive Mothers vag — Hive Mother’s
    whole get up — get-up


  9. Kenny says:

    that he’s about to go out and pound their Hive Mothers vag all night long.

    LMFAO this sites consistently hilarious and Dannys outfit?

    Shudders what can be seen can not be unseen.

    normally i’m up for shits and gigs at the expense of full house characters, but i could not stop cringing at dj in this one…… her emotionally manipulative behavior (and face) weren’t even funnily awful to watch, just nauseating to watch.


    • I actually feel for her on this one. My dad died when I was an adult, and when my mom started dating about a year later, I was furious. How could she replace my dad? That’s how it is when a parent dies. There’s a feeling of that person being replaced.

      Danny shouldn’t have brought the girls into it. Only after he got serious should he have started gently bringing it up and gradually letting them get used to the idea.


  11. Victoria says:

    Once again I’m really confused by the fashion on this show. Is the snuggie supposed to demonstrate that Linda is unhinged? That she doesn’t care about appearances? Or is it just a normal terrible outfit that no one looks twice at it?


    • Jessica says:

      Anytime full house is on, I go back and read the entry for that episode. I always end up reading more then one review though. It still cracks me up everytime!


  12. blastfromthepast says:

    What’s up with people wearing shoes on the furniture all of the time, especially with Danny being such a neat freak? Another example of the lack of continuity in the show. And in this episode, how can Stephanie’s shoes on Danny’s bed (see above) be so clean?

    Is it just me, or is D.J. more of a brat in the first season? She was a brat in this episode and the cereal commercial episode, among others.


    • trlkly says:

      Danny’s not a neat freak yet in this season. Remember how he and the other men left the house in a mess and had to have their mothers clean up?


  13. Charles says:

    Something I’m wondering about: how long, exactly, has Danny’s wife been dead at this point? If it was as recent as I think it was, it may be understandable that the kids are so put out by Danny dating again so soon.


  14. CanOx says:

    Haha a snuggie


  15. Jerry says:

    Stephanie’s legs look quite delicious in that 6th screenshot. The producers clearly knew how to entice men with a little bit of eyecandy.


  16. Milca Ceballos says:

    I feel for DJ here because, her dad replacing her dead mom so soon. She was probably foreseeing the worst case scenario of having an evil stepmom, an unloving and uncaring dad, step siblings up and above her, she and her sisters neglected, and many other things.
