Season 4, Episode 4, “Slumber Party”

Pre-Credits Gag:  DJ helps Michelle finish her block structure and then Michelle knocks it over and smiles like the devil.  THE DEVIL!!!

Jesse and Rebecca Donaldson publish their wedding announcement in the newspaper but his name is written as “Jersey” by accident so he gets all pissed.  You’d think that Jesse would be coming to terms right about now with the fact that he will spend the rest of his life playing second fiddle to his way more talented and impressive wife, but I guess he’s not gonna go out without a fight.  After the comedic potential of that little scenario is explored for a few precious moments, Stephanie comes home and interrupts everyone by announcing that she wants to quit the Honeybees.  She refuses to go to the upcoming Honeybee slumber party and runs up to her room like a big fucking baby.  Danny’s like, “oh, she doesn’t wanna go because it’s a mother/daughter thing and her mom lies a-smoldering in her grave.”  Danny then asks Rebecca Donaldson is she’ll take Stephanie and Rebecca Donaldson’s like, “aint no thang, except I’m gonna be in Tahoe that day, but I’ll be back that evening so it’s no big deal.”  Hmm…  kinda makes you wonder why she’d mention it…?  Anyway, Rebecca Donaldson goes up to Stephanie’s room and offers to take her to the slumber party, then they hug, then they sing the Honeybee song.

Danny takes the uncles up to the attic, where they’re planning on setting up a work space for their new careers.  The uncles take a glance at all of Danny’s memorabilia that’s stored up there and immediately start pressuring him to sell it.  That’s pretty shitty if you ask me.  The only reason Danny doesn’t have room to store all that stuff is because these 2 fuckheads are using up all the space in his gigantic house.  Why don’t they just use the big check that Danny wrote them last episode to rent a studio space?  Why was a big check not enough for these guys?  Lucky for them, Danny has no self-respect, and is therefore easily persuaded into selling all of his precious memories at a garage sale that upcoming weekend to make room for the uncles’ latest idiotic endeavor.

While Stephanie prepares for the Honeybee slumber party, she finds out that Kimmie Gibbler will be sleeping in her bed as she and DJ have their own sleepover.  Stephanie’s pretty pissed about it but I for one welcome this change.  Oh, if only Kimmie Gibbler would replace Stephanie permanently.  Seriously, that kid’s really worn out her screen time.  I can’t think of a single reason why they shouldn’t give her the Judy Winslow treatment.  Anyway, while all of this is going on, Jesse and Michelle walk into the room for pretty much no reason and explain that Jesse’s gonna take Michelle clothes shopping.  Jesse’s wearing his old leather jacket that we haven’t seen since like the first Season, which seems like some sort of a set-up if you ask me…

At the garage sale, Joey gives Danny a hard time for charging way too much money for all of his crappy stuff.  Jesse returns from the clothing store with Michelle in biker gear just like his, which makes the audience lose their fucking minds.  I don’t really get this…  I mean, I kind of get that Jesse decides to dress the kid up like himself, but what’s extra weird about it is that Jesse stopped dressing like this a few Seasons ago, and has been sporting a full on Bill Cosby style ever since.  So if he’s that much of a narcissist that he decided to make a little girl emulate his outfits, why’d he go back to the shit he was wearing 2 years ago?  I guess the answer is that in the early 90’s anyone would use any excuse to put shades and a leather jacket on anything, so there’s probably nothing more to it than that.

Anyway, Danny is understandably appalled that Jesse bought his child a Halloween outfit to wear to school and makes the uncles watch the garage sale while he takes Michelle back to the store.

Rebecca Donaldson calls up Stephanie to tell her that her car broke down on the way back from Tahoe and she can’t take her to that lame slumber party for nerds.  Stephanie gets all butt hurt and expresses her pathos to Comet while sad music plays and the audience goes, “aww.”

Seriously, if Stephanie just disappeared from the show with no explanation, would anybody mind at all?

After the commercial break, Joey enters the scene and offers to take Stephanie to the sleepover.  Stephanie is pretty apprehensive about it because Joey’s presence in her life is a constant source of humiliation, but since she really doesn’t have any other options, she accepts.

Joey’s arrival at the Honeybee sleepover is pretty ill-received.  I’ve got to say, as much as I’d be upset with Joey’s presence at any engagement I was hosting, I’m pretty shocked at how callous and unaccepting these other Honeybees are.  I mean, come on, Stephanie’s mom is dead.  It’s not like these kids don’t know that.  You’d think that they’d be willing to accommodate the special circumstance of a kid with a dead mom at mother/daughter events, even if it required the inclusion of her annoying, piece of shit uncle.  What really bothers me the most about this situation is that it made me speak out in defense of Joey.

The other weird thing about this scenario is that we actually get to see Stephanie behave the way any kid really would if they had to deal with Joey all the time.  He makes a bunch of lame jokes that bomb with the horde of girls and Stephanie just stands there looking totally mortified the whole time.  Seriously, why isn’t it always like this?

Danny comes home after buying Michelle some cornball ass Little House on the Prairie dress and Jesse tells her that he’s sorry that she has to wear that lame bullshit.  She tells him that she likes the dress way better than that biker gear he bought for her and then Jesse realizes that he was forcing her to dress like he does, just like his own dad used to do to him, and apologizes.  Wow, that’s like the most psychological depth they’ve ever written into this show, and it happened in like 30 seconds of a secondary addendum to a b-plot.

Anyway, Jesse tells Danny that he ended up putting all of his shit in storage, except for a few choice pieces of memorabilia that he left at the full house for Danny’s enjoyment.  This exchange is interrupted by the phone ringing, with Joey on the other end calling to talk about nothing in particular other than it’s time to transition the scene back to the slumber party.

Joey, while sporting some pretty spectacular Ninja Turtle pajamas, loses a high-heels relay race, shaming Stephanie ever further.  I’m not really sure if it’s because he lost, or because he was wearing high heels, or if this is just the point in Stephanie’s life where she finally realizes what a total dipshit Joey is.  Anyway, the focus abruptly shifts yet again as one of the girls calls out that it’s time to play beauty parlor.  Man, this slumber party is intense!  It’s just nonstop group activities, one after another, and each one ends instantaneously when some girl calls out what the next activity is and everyone swiftly assembles for it.

The head mom at the sleepover realizes that it might be pretty awkward to try to play beauty parlor with Joey in the mix and so she tries to suggest a different activity.  The girls are like, “fuck that shit, we wanna play muthafuckin beauty parlor, we don’t care who’s mom’s dead,” and then Stephanie gets all upset and storms out.

Meanwhile, back at the full house, Danny, Michelle and Jesse get down to Danny’s old 8-track recording of “Shake Your Booty.”  Their festivities are cut short by Stephanie storming in, with Joey in tow.  I guess the slumber party was happening in the same neighborhood or something?  Stephanie freaks out and runs up to her room and the dads all just stand around not knowing what the fuck to do.  Danny tries to talk with Stephanie but DJ decides that she’s got some heartwarming, music-inducing words to share.

Stephanie cries and says that it sucks dick to have a dead mom and DJ admits that she too suffers from the occasional bout of mom-envy.  DJ says that that she tries to focus less on the fact that their mother is a festering pile of maggot infested flesh and more on the fact that they have 3 idiotic dads who love them.  But… wasn’t that the whole problem to begin with?  How can she tell Stephanie that it’s ok that their mom is dead because they have Jesse and Joey when this entire episode was just one big long example of how shitty that can be?  Isn’t every aspect of their life more awful because their mom is dead and Joey takes care of them instead?  Maybe DJ should’ve just given her some Zoloft instead.

Anyway, Stephanie makes up with Joey right before DJ takes her back to the slumber party. Why didn’t DJ just take her in the first place?

As baffling as this episodes message was to me, the thing that really blew my mind is that the person who really fucked up everything was Rebecca Donaldson.  Up until this point, she had done no wrong.

Firsts:  The attic, Rebecca Donaldson fucks up

    Rebecca Donaldson went up to Tahoe, huh? Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Jersey go up to Tahoe once to bang some hoes? Was Rebecca getting some action on the side?

    I remember the episode of Joey going to the slumber party, but I forgot about the god awful Ninja Turtle outfit he wore. It’s Donatello too! He was my favorite…oh the shame.

    Anyway, does the ending mean Kimmie Gibbler was just sleeping at the Tanner household by herself?

      during the first season, “going to tahoe” was definitely a euphemism for no-strings-attached sex. jersey probably has to let rebecca donaldson enjoy her freedom every now and again so she doesnt drop him like a bag of laundry. when youre whole life is built on mooching off of the success of the people around you, youve gotta be flexible.

      and, yeah, the episode ends with an abandoned kimmie gibbler watching dirty dancing by herself in the living room. i didnt mention it because i wanted to go to sleep.

    The only reason Danny doesn’t have room to store all that stuff is because these 2 fuckheads are using up all the space in his gigantic house. Why don’t they just use the big check that Danny wrote them last episode to rent a studio space?

    Weren’t they working out of the garage/basement in the last episode? Or is that just Joey’s bedroom and that was a one time thing? Seriously, first Danny lets them live in the house rent free, then writes them a check, and now he has to clear out his stuff to make MORE room for them? What a bunch of jerkwads…

    Jesse realizes that he was forcing her to dress like he does, just like his own dad used to do to him, and apologizes.

    I feel like that “plot” would have worked a lot better if Michelle was older (and thus able to more fully articulate that she didn’t want to dress like Jersey) and/or a boy (and thus more like the example of Jesse and his dad), but whatever.

    The girls are like, “fuck that shit, we wanna play muthafuckin beauty parlor, we don’t care who’s mom’s dead”

    High heels races? Playing Beauty Parlor? Way to break down those traditional gender roles, Honeybees.

    Why didn’t DJ just take her in the first place?

    I was wondering that exact same thing. Especially since, way back when, wasn’t DJ a Honeybee too? Heck, she probably makes more sense than Rebecca Donaldson in the first place.

    As baffling as this episodes message was to me, the thing that really blew my mind is that the person who really fucked up everything was Rebecca Donaldson.

    Let’s just assume she let Jersey give her car a tune-up before she left and that’s why it broke down. Which gives her no fault beyond her series-long sin of putting up with Jersey in the first place.

Rebecca Donaldson knows she’s entering into a dark place and even though she is given ample opportunities to jump ship, she keeps coming back for more. Have mercy.

    I took a few day break from reading this blog, and when I came back and started looking at this entry, I saw the first pic of Stephanie and actually thought outloud, “Oh yeah. Stephanie’s not cute anymore.” I also recall seeing this show again (old seasons), for the first time as an adult and being like “whoa, Stephanie used to be a cute kid?!”

    She really is the worst character at this point. Joey was the worst, but he was trumped by Stephanie starting in this season.

    I noticed in the last cap that Stephanie’s wearing earrings. I am sure there is an episode coming that’s all about Stephanie piercing her own ears. I’m pretty sure that annoying asshole friend of hers helps her with it, and her ears get infected and it’s a whole thing. Nice continuity, Full House.

    This episode always bugged me. You have Girl-Scout-type group with one member being motherless. You’d think they would’ve all sat down at some point and explained this sensitive situation to the girls. And , more so, you’d think they’d eliminate all “Mother/Daughter” activities in light of this. But instead, not only do they go ahead with the Mother/Daughter Sleepover, the Honeybees all act like complete a-holes when Orphan Stephanie shows up with the closest thing she has to a mother. And their shitty mothers do absolutely nothing to help the situation. Perhaps bad parenting is a San Francisco-wide problem. I have yet to see a responsible parent on this show.

    This is another disturbing episode.

    It’s like they only mention their dead mother when it’s convenient to the plot, otherwise they don’t seem to even acknowledge that they had a mother.

    It’s always nicely convenient when Rebecca Donaldson is at the house right at the moment they need her for something. Wouldn’t it be normal for the head honeybee lady to already understand that Stephanie is motherless and to arrange something for her before the girl goes home crying??? Also, Danny is such a lousy parent. He pawns off Stephanie’s problem on Becky and then doesn’t even follow up the situation to make sure that everything turned out alright. Instead he focuses on charging an insane about of money for his junk at his lame-ass yard sale.

    I was thinking if this aired now, people would just assume that Joey was Danny’s gay lover or husband. It’s so disturbing that Joey was was so excited about going to a mother/daughter slumber party??? WTF? And then Joey is standing right in front of D.J’s George Michael posters as he’s agreeing to go to a girl’s slumber party.

    You also left out the cringe worthy moment when Joey starts singing the Honeybee song in his lame-ass Bill Murray imitation lounge singer voice.

    Don’t these people have any kind of female relative? Or why didn’t they just ask D.J.? And then Joey kind of looks like a pedophile because he’s so exited about going to a slumber party with 8 year old girls. Then he shows up in a Teenage Ninja Turtle pajamas and no one thinks it’s strange that a grown man is wearing those clothes. How does Stephanie even introduce him, “Hi, this is Joey he’s my Dad’s 30 year old friend and he’s been living in our basement for 3 years”.

    I never understood why there was a such a rush to buy MIchelle some new clothes? Why was this so urgent? Danny just leaves right in the middle of his lame-ass yard sale to go clothe shopping.

    I guess the party wasn’t far from the Tanner house because Stephanie runs out of the house in her pajamas and walks home.

    It’s always convenient when there’s a spare walk up attic with plenty of head room in these homes.

    The Tanner backyard is like a mystical vortex where people can leave and enter from 6-7 different locations and defy time and space. They can somehow drive their cars back there as well. And almost everything is within walking distance from the Tanner house (Video Store, Slumber Party, Touch-Up paint for Joey’s 1963 car). That is unless it’s important to the plot, they you have to drive.

      John Q, on “Party of 5” the Salenger kids only talked about their dead parents when the episodes called for it too! Owen never was told about his parents and they had very few flashbacks about them. I think the Honeybee moms should have accommodated Stephanie and maybe have one of the mothers should have acted like a slumber party mom-replacement for Stephanie. I think Danny should have talked to his daughter before the slumber party and ask her if she wanted to go. He could have spent time with Stephanie and bought her clothes instead of buying that little monster clothes and this is in case Stephanie didn’t want to go. I think the writers used George Michael pictures behind Joey as a nod to him being Danny’s gay lover. Joey does give off a child molester air of sorts, though!

    (Italicized text from John Q’s comment) — “It’s like they only mention their dead mother when it’s convenient to the plot, otherwise they don’t seem to even acknowledge that they had a mother.” — In the horribly-written ‘Stephanie’ books, Stephanie claims that learning that she might miss a weekend school trip because Danny gives a damn about her safety has turned an average day into ‘The worst day of her life’. I think I’d have forgotten about this, the way most people forget traumatic experiences, except that it really bothered me when I was younger that she has conveniently forgotten about her mother’s death. And if Pam Tanner wasn’t dead, Full House would just be a show in which a couple raises three daughters. And how dare a father worry about the safety of one of his children? How unfortunate are those poor Tanner girls?

    I grew up in a fairly unusual family, too (poverty, parents divorced, mom remarried, separated, cheated, then my stepfather died (I called him ‘Dad; for 21 years though, so it counts to me that I lost a parent), and my mom’s still dating the guy she cheated on her husband with and now she’s acting like an ass) but my father’s death is still the worst thing to ever happen to me, and no missed school event compares at all. I can’t say that the day my dad died was the worst of my life, because I was in shock that day and the worst came later . . . I don’t even remember what happened in the years after he died, so I can only imagine they were bad. The way death and grief are dealt with on this show really bugs me, I guess because the plot is really all about three full-grown but inept men trying to raise three girls, they figured they didn’t need writers with any death-related experience. The family barely deals with losing the wife and mother at all; in maybe the first five episodes there were a few musical moments in which someone sheds a tear, but in my experience that’s just mocking. The real thing is so much worse than that, you don’t get over a crying fit in thirty seconds because someone’s patting you on the back (also in my experience, people trying to comfort me made it worse) and if you only shed a few tears and then you’re good to go, you probably didn’t really care about the person you lost.

    Sorry about this rant, I just hate incompetent writers (especially those who don’t seem to try and still get paid).

    I’d like to think that the people directing the show tried to get people with experience dealing with grief to help them write the episodes or at least to act as consultants, and that the grieving people said, “Haven’t I dealt with enough without also having to deal with those Full House people?!”
