Season 6, Episode 22, “Prom Night”

Pre-Credits Gag:  Oh, hey, Vicky’s back.  I had completely forgotten that she even existed.  She and the rest of the family play Go Fish and Michelle cheats.

The episode opens just seconds after the conclusion of the pre-credits gag, when DJ enters the living room with Steve and Kimmie Gibbler as they prepare to go shopping for prom dresses.  They deliver some expository dialogue as they make their way to the front door and it is revealed that Kimmie Gibbler is going to the prom with some guy that Steve fixed her up with and Jesse and his shitty band are going to be performing there.  Of course they are!

During the game of Go Fish, Danny stresses the importance of telling the truth, which leads to Vicky admitting that she lied about her age when they first met.  He’s always thought that she was a year younger than him but it turns out that she’s actually a year older.  This totally incidental piece of information seems to cause Danny an inexplicable degree of emotional turmoil.

DJ models a prom dress for Steve and he seems totally uninterested.  Kimmie Gibbler comes out of the dressing room and, after pulling DJ aside, tells her that Steve’s ex-girlfriend is in there trying on dresses.  She comes out wearing the same dress as DJ and asks Steve how she looks and he seems to find her pretty boner-inducing.  After he snaps out of his boner-haze, he introduces his ex to DJ and Kimmie Gibbler even though it seems pretty implausible that they’ve never met each other since they all go to the same school.  Or even if they hadn’t ever met somehow, wouldn’t it be a given that Steve’s ex-girlfriend would know about who he was dating?  Even if she didn’t give a shit I’m sure she would’ve at least heard about it.

Steve’s ex-girlfriend invites them to a hotel party after the prom and Steve seems like he wants to go but DJ’s a real wet blanket about it, probably because there might be wine cooler there or something.

As Becky applies whoreish makeup to DJ’s big round moon face, she reminisces about her own prom and states with disbelief that she’s now old enough to be chaperoning at DJ’s.  So, Becky’s chaperoning at DJ’s prom, huh?  Of course she is!

DJ mentions that she and Steve were invited to an after-party in a hotel room and Becky supports her unwillingness to ever do anything that’s fun.  DJ worries that Steve’s still into his old girlfriend and Becky reassures her that Steve is only into stick-in-the-mud girls who never put out and have corny, overbearing families.

The audience does an awful lot of hooting as everyone comes out in their prom attire.  Becky and Jesse are all dudded up for their respective chaperone/band member roles, Steve shows up in a fly ass tuxedo, and DJ looks pretty bangin’ in her dress.

Jesse and his terrible band perform what could only be described as a calypso rendition of the Beach Boys song “Good Vibrations” at the prom and for some reason no one seems to mind.  I wonder if there will ever be any event in this entire series that Jesse’s shitty band doesn’t perform at.  I also thought I’d mention that I’ve always found it strange that every prom I’ve ever seen in movies or television has a live band, but I’ve never heard of that ever happening in real life.  My prom had a DJ, and I bet yours did, too.

After everyone dances to Jesse’s terrible band, Steve’s ex-girlfriend introduces her date, Paul, to Steve and he seems like he might be pretty sad that some other dude is gonna be bangin’ her that night, but it might just be because DJ is yet to let him even feel on her boobs over her shirt.  Even on prom night, second base is a million miles away.

Kimmie Gibbler’s date refers to her as, “my little love stick.” I cant really figure out what that’s supposed to mean but I think it might be disgusting.  Becky tries to hang out with the kids because the other chaperones don’t want to join her as she dances to her husband’s shitty music and also because there’s a running gag this episode about her feeling old and attempting to cling to her youth.

Abruptly, Jesse announces that it’s time to reveal who the prom king and queen are and it turns out that the Steve has been chosen as the prom king.  Of course he was!  Incidentally, they announce his name as Steven Hale and it made me realize that up until this point I had no idea what his last name was.  I’m not sure if they’ve never said it before or if they did and I just wasn’t paying attention, but either way, who gives a shit?

So then they announce the prom queen and, oh snap!  It’s Steve’s ex-girlfriend.  I’m kind of surprised that Jesse didn’t just say it was DJ because it’s not like he hasn’t tampered with every other event he’s been involved in throughout the entire series by making it all about his stupid family but I guess that it better serves the formulaic plot if Steve’s ex-girlfriend wins.  The camera zooms in on DJ as sad music plays while the prom king and queen accept their awards.

As everyone gathers around the prom king and queen, Steve’s ex-girlfriend’s date, Paul, explains to DJ that she was the one that broke up with him and that he was all fucked up about it.  DJ becomes ever-increasingly butthurt.

Meanwhile, back at the full house, everyone tries to teach the babies the proper way to eat ice cream without looking like a fucking slob and then Joey unintentionally exemplifies the wrong way to do it.  Of course he does!

Danny and Vicky are left alone after Joey senses tension between them, which is the first time ever that Joey has picked up on a social cue.  I’m surprised that he didn’t just start talking like Popeye and spitting in their faces when he noticed that they were having issues.  Anyway, once they’re left alone, Danny starts talking about how he’s all freaked out about her being older because he was always taught that men should be older than women in relationships.  He also says that men should be stronger than women and there’s almost a subtle moment where he can’t open a jar and then she does it for him while they’re talking but instead of them casually doing this, which might have actually been kind of funny, they both stop speaking and make bug eyes at the jar when it happens.  Anyway, they putz through their totally inane discussion until the music comes on, which makes Danny come to his senses and realize that this is the most pointless non-issue ever in the entire series.  Seriously, who could possibly give a shit about this problem?  Passionless kissing ensues, which draws further attention to the fact that their age difference is the least of the problems in this tragic sham of a relationship.

The prom king and queen dance together as Jesse’s terrible band play a jazzy rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” which was a pretty ubiquitous song at the time.  DJ looks upset as Steve dances with his ex-girlfriend even though he looks pretty rigid and guilty the whole time.

Becky intervenes, grabbing the microphone and telling everyone to dance with who they came with, but it seems to go unnoticed.  DJ goes to cut in just as just Steve tells his ex-girlfriend that he’s gonna go dance with DJ but then his ex-girlfriend grabs him and totally slips him the tongue.  For some reason Steve doesn’t do anything to resist this and DJ sees the whole thing before getting all upset and running away.

Steve explains to his ex-girlfriend that he’s in love with DJ now and that they’ll probably finally have sex some time after they get married.  Steve goes to find DJ but she decides to revenge-kiss Steve’s ex-girlfriend’s date, Paul, right in front of him.

Steve tries to explain what happened but since the music is still a terrible cover of “I Will Always Love You” and not gentle piano music, the conflict remains unresolved.  Someone comes up to them while they’re arguing and mentions that the party is happening upstairs, which seems pretty oblivious and insensitive if you ask me, and DJ decides to take Paul up there to give him some more cold, closed-mouth kissing just to spite Steve.  In response, Steve grabs his ex-girlfriend to take her up there, too.  It seems kind of weird to me that neither of these other people have any issue with being blatantly used just to cuckold someone.

Becky pulls Jesse off of the stage and has him go over to the elevator to stop DJ, Steve and the passive participants that they’re using to spite each other before they can head up to the party.

Jesse pulls everyone out of the elevator and asks them what the fuck is going on.  They convince DJ that she should never ever go to a fun party, even if it’s just to get revenge on her shitty boyfriend, and then DJ says that the prom is ruined and her whole life sucks.

Steve intervenes and tries to convince DJ that the whole thing is just a big misunderstanding but she won’t really hear him out until a few minutes into it when the music finally comes on.  Once those soothing piano keys enter the scene, DJ finally takes Steve’s word that he never really loved his ex-girlfriend and that he’s totally dedicated to her.  Dang, did he really have to discredit his entire previous relationship just to appease her?  Why can’t she just be happy that he loves her and not his ex-girlfriend now?  Then they go back to the prom and dance to a very special song that Jesse dedicates just to them, “I Will Always Love You.”  Really?  We already heard that shit!  I guess they wanted to get their money’s worth after paying for the rights to it.

Firsts:  Steve’s last name (unless I missed it before), Joey picks up on a social cue

    Awesome, awesome review!

    -Regarding DJ never having met Steve’s ex, it is very possible to not know everyone in your high school class (I had 764 students in my high school class!), but they definitely would have heard about each other.

    -Beach Boys renditions at a high school prom in 1993? Really? Weren’t they yesterday’s news by that time? I’m a young’n, so I wouldn’t know for sure…

    -“Steve tries to explain what happened but since the music is still a terrible cover of “I Will Always Love You” and not gentle piano music, the conflict remains unresolved.”

    Heheheheeh! Love this line.

    – Respectfully disagree with the “DJ’s big round moon face” reference. IMO she is really pretty at this point in the series 🙂

    – Screencap # 9 …. Joey is so gross, he really is. That picture is enough to make me sick to my stomach.

    – Oy. Vey. I despise in movies and TV shows when an unavailable guy is kissed by another woman and the guy clearly doesn’t resist but then acts all innocent just because he didn’t initiate the kiss. It is NOT that hard to pull away immediately when someone kisses you, it really isn’t.

        i’m actually gonna go ahead and agree with you that dj does look pretty good in this episode. i also would agree that dj not being rail-thin (although i would say that she’s pretty thin, just not hollywood thin) might be one of the only aspects of this show that may have been positive for all of the young girls that watched it. honestly, i think there should be more young girls on tv who look like dj, who are attractive in a way that applies to normal human standards. i just used the term “big round moon face” because i thought it sounded funny, and also because after spending several years hating on this show every week it can be hard not to just uniformly shit all over everything. so i appreciate your comments and am happy to agree with you.

      I graduated high school in 1994 and I can assure you, the majority of people my age at that time were NOT rocking out to the Beach Boys.

      A few years prior they had that song “Kokomo” – but as far as I recall that was the only “new” Beach Boys song that anyone my age group was familiar with.

      Of course, I knew of other Beach Boys songs and enjoyed singing them now and again – but not at prom. It’s one thing to feel silly and sing “Barbara Ann” in the car, totally different to dance and rock out to “Surfin’ USA” at prom.

    This is one of those episodes that stands out in my head. I remember thinking that DJ’s prom dress was uggo and Steve had basically no reason to apologize because he didn’t really do anything wrong.

    Although the writers are incapable of continuity re: last names, plot points, etc., at least they are able to remember that fake John Favreau is a member of Jesse’s band and have him back.

    Speaking of casting, that’s Fred Koehler (Chip from “Kate & Allie”) as Kimmie’s prom date, and Andy Cavovit , who, amongst other things played Paul Stenbeck on “As The World Turns” in the 80’s, as Paul, the object of cuckolding.

        I would normally agree with what you said about Steve; however, he’s been dating DJ for several months now and has probably never gotten more than a close-mouthed 30-second makeout session from her, and that probably even only happens on special occasions. The fact that a hot girl kisses him, a red-blooded teenage boy, and he doesn’t immediately strip off her clothes and bone her right there on the dance floor is a testament to how head-over-heels in love with DJ he is. Steve is a fucking saint.

        Now it’s my turn to respectfully disagree. It bothers me that our society constantly portrays women as OWING men sexual activity, and portrays men as having zero self-control. There are plenty of people who date for years and choose not to be sexually involved, and there’s nothing wrong with them. Let’s give women the right to be dated for the people they are, not the bodies they own, and let’s give men enough respect to assume that they have more intelligence and self-restraint than your average stray dog.

    Alright, here it goes: It has always bothered me that this show features young kids and teens rocking out to out-dated music and not seeming the least bit bothered by it.(i.e. The Beach Boys at Prom) I mean, I was one of the kids that knew about older music because I’m the youngest of four by a very large age gap and I know that I was the minority. Kids don’t always develop an appreciation for the classics until they are much older.

        penny, are you saying that codi was eventually replaced by balki from perfect strangers? i don’t remember that! or was it some other balki?

        also, who do you guys think was the hottest step by step daughter? i remember having a secret thing for dana when i was a kid. i also remember the “hot” brunette sister not really doing it for me because she had a shit attitude. also, i’m pretty sure that the tomboy youngest sister got pretty hot when she got older.

        one last thing i’ll say is that the #1 episode of step by step i remember is the one where the nerdy son gets addicted to video games. it seemed like an absurd premise that would be played up for laughs but i remember it ending with a pretty straight-faced scene in an a.a. style meeting that he goes do. that might be the most ridiculous “very special episode” in the history of tgif.

        Yes, when Cody left the show, he was replaced by Balki — well, not actually Balki, but the actor who played him. He was some French guy (a hairstylist in Carol’s salon I think?) which was pretty much Balki with a bad French accent.

        That’s around the time I stopped watching, when Carol had the kid with Sitcom Rapid Aging Disorder (like Chrissy Seaver or Andy Keaton). I think I heard the youngest brother was written out of the show at some point for no reason.

        Incidentally, I remember Christine Lakin (the youngest daughter) showing up in a really good episode of Veronica Mars a few years back (which also guest-starred a pre-Gossip Girl Leighton Meester). And of course the dorky son was also in the Beethoven movies.

        LOL! That episode made me cry when I was young.

        If we’re being honest, SBTB is probably just about as inane and painful to sit through as Full House is. The writing isn’t any more intelligent and the continuity isn’t any better. Screech gives Joey a run for his money for the most irritatingly obnoxious sitcom chararcter of all time.

        The one redeeming factor of SBTB is that the rest of the characters aren’t quite as irritating as the Full House ones. And it is less smug in its overtly smug and saccharine.

        Still, it’s a pretty close call. SBTB is pretty awful too, as far as quality goes.

    I saw Santanaonfire make a suggestion on a previous entry that I think was a good one. Has anyone ever seen those ridiculous straight-to-video Olsen twin movies, like Billboard Dad, Passport to Paris, Holiday in the Sun, Getting There, The Challenge?? They are awful, awful, awful, and they showcase the Olsen twins’ ….er, shall we saw, lack of progress in the acting department.

    Anyway, it was suggested that someone review one or all of those movies. I think it’s a great idea. There is PLENTY of snark-worthy stuff in those movies: horrible acting, ridiculous characters, laughable contrivances, senseless non-plots, the works. (Megan Fox was even in Holiday in the Sun before she had much of a career!) I would definitely consider doing this….I just don’t know if my sense of humor is sarcastic/snarky enough to do it justice. But I would definitely think about it.

    Just putting this out there as an idea/suggestion for anyone who has seen (or would be willing to see) those Olsen twin movies and do recaps on them. Could be a fun project 🙂

        I went to public school and our prom was held a good distance away off campus. I lived NEAR Little Rock (my school was a good 10 miles from downtown Little Rock – we were in the suburbs) and yet our prom was in downtown Little Rock.

        (Meanwhile, we did have a winter formal that took place in the school cafeteria.)

        Same with our graduation – ours wasn’t at the school either – but the same place huge concerts used to be held. (It was kinda disconcerting to be in a gap and gown at the same place I’d spent evenings rocking out to Warrant, Poison, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Slaughter and more.)

        I guess it depends on the size of the school/class and how much money they have to spend on prom.

        I did go to another prom with someone from another school and I THINK their prom was held at their school’s gym. It’s been a long ass time ago and proms weren’t really something I cared too much about so I can’t recall for sure.

It’s also established in the final episode of the series that DJ is having trouble finding a date for the prom, meaning that it’s likely that Steve and DJ are two years apart in age (certainly in grades).

Let me get this straight… So you think it’s weird that pretty, popular senior Rachel Taylor would have never formally met dowdy, social outcast sophomores DJ Tanner and Kimmie Gibbler (which, if you had thought about it for half a second, actually makes PERFECT sense,) yet you DON’T think it’s noteworthy-odd that pretty, popular Rachel Taylor is inviting her exboyfriend and his totally uncool sophomore girlfriend, who he’s with for NO good reason, to a party?? Okay, Billy! Whatever.

    And then you redeem yourself with this line:
    “As Becky applies whoreish makeup to DJ’s big round moon face”

    And my faith in you is restored.

      It’s not all that weird when she’s the prom queen and he’s the prom king. It’s only weird that there’s a party going on upstairs at the prom. You’d think that would be the absolute worst place to throw one of those.

    The bit about Jeoy picking up on his social cue for the first time ever, and Danny and Vicky’s passionless kiss in their “sham of a relationship” made milk come out of my nose as well. Almond milk to be exact. And what high school just like recruits random members of the community and spouses of their terrible live talent to chaperone?? Oh and you forgot to mention the bit about the high school kid mistaking Becky for a cheerleader. Lori Loughlin is slammin, but she does NOT look like a teenager sorry. It’s almost as if these narcissistic actors (particularly Cameron, Stamos and Loughlin,) have it negotiation into their contracts that there be flattering inferences somewhere in the script. I also thought it was funny that at the end of his outlandishly unrealistic compliment, the staging sends them off in different directions before cutting to make it clear that Becky did NOT get some underaged tail that night.

    AAHHH one last thing. After Steve introduces DJ and Kimmie to Rachel, she totally snubs Kimmie in the invite to the party upstairs. Gibbler’s just standing there blinking like the socially inept miscreant that she is… And since you’re a writer who embarked on this undertaking to hone your skills, I’d be interested in perhaps an expose of each character. Try to be thorough, honest and fair though, not just rip them to shreds (although some of that is to be expected, especially in Joey’s analysis.) Try to do the subcharacters as well, like Vicky (that’ll be hard lol), Kimmie and Steve. Character arcs? I think Kimmie’s would be most interesting of all. There are a few glimpses, especially in season 6, of some actual humanlike qualities. Like sometimes she’s a good friend to DJ. This scene is a good example of that. She anticipates DJ’s anxiety and reacts accordingly. Of course then she makes the bone headed “the old girlfriend, the new girlfriend, smell the tension” remark. Would be interested in reading such an essay from you once you finish the series.

    The most amazing part of this episode is that the whole Full House didn’t somehow make it to the prom. I’m surprised Joey and Danny weren’t chaperons as well, and you know they would have just annoyed everyone and made it all about DJ. Of course Becky had to get right in the middle of it.

    Steve’s ex was looking hot in that dress. You can tell by the audience when they see her, but i thought DJ’s dress was nice . Her dress made her curves show which makes DJ beautiful. Rachel on the other hand had a slim figure. but DJ had that sexy curvy Jessica Rabbit figure . so both girls were hot. Steve you are a lucky guy.

    Were these kids actually going to do anything naughty or sexy in that hotel room? Play root beer beer pong/beirut probably.

        Cool. I’ll bring the snacks. Steve will probably eat them all though.

        On a side note, with all the carbs and gluten that he eats in the house, how does he not get fat?

    There’s a part when they are playing Go Fish that Jesse tells Joey that they have to go to work on the radio. Wait a second, aren’t they afternoon drive-time d.j.’s?? What time is it now and what is everybody doing home around noon on a weekday??

    Why is Becky a chaperone at this prom?

    I swear this show almost killed the Beach Boys. What a cringe worthy moment when John Stamos is singing a reggae version of “Good Vibrations”.
    Wouldn’t a chaperone like the school principal or some teacher announce the winner of the prom king and not the lead singer of some crappy band??

    The subplot of Danny being upset about the 1 year age difference between he and Vicki is easily one of the laziest, which is saying something for this show. Who cares?

    Where were the chaperones when all the kids started going upstairs to the hotel room. And why would you book a prom in a hotel anyway? Seems like a disaster waiting to happen. Normally they’re in a banquet hall type of place. And where I grew up everybody went down the shore after the prom and rented rooms and got totally wasted and had sex.

    “Danny and Vicky are left alone after Joey senses tension between them, which is the first time ever that Joey has picked up on a social cue. I’m surprised that he didn’t just start talking like Popeye and spitting in their faces when he noticed that they were having issues.”

    You paint incredible mental images.
