Season 8, Episode 4, “I’ve Got a Secret”

Pre-Credits Gag:  Jesse tells the twins to do exactly as he does while he shows them how to fix their tricycle, then, naturally, he fucks it up and hurts himself and they mimic his cries of pain.

Michelle and her little friends play “Mighty Mutant Super Kids” in her room.  At first I thought that this was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles thing but then I realized that it’s probably more of a Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers thing.  Michelle is playing with Aaron Bailey and Derek and some new kid named Lisa, which seems like sort of an odd assortment of kids.  Where are Teddy and Denise?  And where did this Lisa kid come from all of a sudden?  Anyway, they decide to form a Mighty Mutant Super Kids club and for some reason it’s really imperative that its existence is kept secret.  They decide that they’d better pick a leader and reach the conclusion that whoever can procure a Mighty Mutant Super Fortress will earn that rank because 90’s kids entertainment was always just about selling you expensive toys.

Kimmie Gibbler walks into DJ’s room and… whoa, check out DJ’s incredibly dated computer.  What’s she even supposed to be doing on that thing?  Its processing power is literally 1/100th as strong as my phone, and my phone is old and shitty.

Oh, yeah, so, anyway, Kimmie Gibbler comes over to tell DJ that she’s invited DJ’s old boyfriend Nelson to a Giants game because she’s romantically interested in him.  Kimmie Gibbler is actually trying to be a good friend and make sure that DJ doesn’t have a problem with this but then she gets all bent out of shape when DJ has trouble adjusting to the idea, assuming that DJ doesn’t think that she’s good enough for Nelson.  They have an argument and then Kimmie Gibbler storms out of the room.

I usually don’t talk much about the shitty fashion on this show because that could be its whole own blog (there’s a really good one for The Cosby Show), but, seriously, what the fuck is Kimmie Gibbler wearing?  It’s a skirt that doesn’t do anything that a skirt is supposed to do.  In the midriff-bearing 90’s, she somehow managed to find a skirt that covers only her stomach.  I don’t know, you guys.  I just don’t know.

As Joey cleans the silverware, he spits all over a knife.  Seriously, what the fuck is up with him spitting all over everything all the time?  It’s really an antisocial behavior, and yet it’s been played for laughs for years now. YEARS!  I can only imagine the terrible behavior that children who watched this show were inspired to emulate, but this spitting shit has got to be the worst of it.  At least this time he’s spitting on an inanimate object instead of directly into someone’s face like he usually does, but it’s still disgusting.  The only consolation is that Danny immediately throws the knife in the garbage afterwards.

Jesse comes home with Becky and the twins and asks Stephanie why she’s using his KISS t-shirt to dry silverware.  She says that it was in the rag pile and he replies that it shouldn’t be because he was saving it for sentimental reasons.  Joey says that he used to love KISS and then he shouts “Rock ‘n’ roll!” and sticks his tongue out, which makes the audience guffaw.

The twins see this and do the same thing, which the audience thinks is adorable.

It’s just this type of uncreative pandering that really exemplifies why this is the worst show of all time.  Some idiot does something annoying and then some ugly little kids repeat it and the audience eats it up.  That’s Full House in a nut shell.

Becky deduces that the KISS t-shirt was a gift from some cooze that Jesse used to stick it to and she gets jealous.  She retaliates by recounting all the hot dick she used to get back in the day and then the argument escalates until they both decide that they’re going to make lists of everyone they ever fucked so they can compare them, which is maybe the worst idea I’ve ever heard in my life. At least now Becky will finally know the names of the women whose STD’s she’s contracted.

Michelle asks Danny for $39 dollars and he’s like, “fuck no,” then she asks Joey and he’s like, “sure,” and then he asks Danny to loan it to him.  If that doesn’t completely summarize their relationship, I don’t know what does.  Why doesn’t Joey have $39, anyway?  He’s got a good job and he doesn’t pay rent.  Anyway, Danny wants to know what the money is for so Michelle tells him about her secret club.  She makes a really big deal about how important it is to keep it a secret, which Danny seems to understand.  Danny says the he still wont buy her the toy because all his money is tied up in supporting all the people that live in his house who don’t pay for anything and then Joey tells her that all of the Super Fortresses are all sold out everywhere anyway, which is supposed to be funny because, you know, Joey plays with toys.  Pretty funny.

Nelson shows up at the full house to meet Kimmie Gibbler for their date, which seems like a pretty forced bit of staging although maybe it makes sense because Kimmie Gibbler’s trying to rub the whole thing in DJ’s face?  I can’t even tell anymore.  When everything’s so forced and absurd all the time it’s hard to tell when something justifiable occurs.  Kimmie Gibbler shows up looking hella fine and escorts Nelson and his enormous nostrils out the door for a long night of hot fucking.

Michelle and her stupid little friends hold another meeting of their secret club and then Danny comes in with a bowl of popcorn and totally spills the beans about knowing about their club.  The kids all get super pissed at Michelle for telling her dad about the club and expel her, which is probably the best decision they’ve ever made.

There’s so much to unpack here.  First of all, what the fuck is wrong with Danny that he just came in there and blabbed about their secret club after Michelle made such a big deal about not doing exactly that?  Maybe it’s excusable that he’d forget, though, because who even gives a shit about some stupid little kids secret club?  Why’s the club even a secret anyway?  It’s not like they were cooking meth at their meetings or anything.  They were just like jumping on the beds and doing ninja kicks and shit.  The other thing that’s kind of amazing here is that after the kids leave, Michelle immediately blames Danny for ruining her club, taking no responsibility whatsoever for telling him about it in the first place.  Granted, he still should have known better than to tell everyone that he knew about the club, but Michelle’s the one who told him about it in the first place.  Her complete lack of accountability is a really disturbing recurring element on this show. And does Danny call her out on this?  Of course not.  He just sits there looking apologetic as sad music plays.  This is just like the time Michelle blamed Jesse for the dog running away after she walked him when she wasn’t supposed to. Maybe if they’d taught her a lesson about accountability then, she wouldn’t be pulling the same bullshit now.  When’s that very special lesson going to come up?  When’s some gentle music going to play as some adult sits her down and explains to her that she’s responsible for her own actions and can’t just go around blaming everyone else every time she fucks up.  Seriously, when the fuck’s that talk going to happen?

Some time later, Danny sits in the kitchen with Joey, still overwhelmed with remorse.  Michelle comes in and tells him again to go fuck himself for ruining her secret club and then leaves.  Danny asks Joey how he can regain Michelle’s good graces and Joey tells him about an inside scoop he got about a toy store that’s getting a new shipment of Super Fortresses so he can buy one and win her love back.

DJ sits down for a very special talk with Aunt Becky, who’s padding her list of guys that she fucked because she remembered what a total man whore Jesse was in the first Season.  DJ tells Becky about how she doesn’t like that Kimmie Gibbler is dating Nelson and Becky says that it’s normal to feel weird about shit like that but you can’t just be an asshole and claim some guy that you don’t even want.

Jesse comes in with his list of sexual conquests and it’s like a goddamn phone book.  He shows it to her and it turns out that it just says “Rebecca” over and over again, which is really creepy, not to mention a total waste of paper (you know that shit isn’t gonna get recycled).  Why didn’t he just write it once?  Was he managing the Overlook Hotel when he wrote his list?  Anyway, Becky is touched by this display of love that only a murderer would think of so they make up.

Danny, Joey, and for some reason Jesse all wait for the toy store to open so they can buy a Super Fortress.  They are immediately trampled by the onslaught of eager consumers, many of whom are also probably trying to win their children’s love without going through all the trouble of learning any parenting skills.

There’s an extended period of physical comedy that involves lots of clamoring and conflict with other parents and in the end the dads are unable to secure a Super Fortress.

As Joey and Danny escort Jesse’s battered frame out of the toy store, a seedy individual beckons them over to him and asks if they’re looking for Super Fortresses.

Kimmie Gibbler comes over to show off the hickey she got on her date as an added fuck you to DJ.  DJ responds gracefully by admitting that she was jealous and saying that she wishes them the best, so they hug, which makes the audience go, “aww.”  Immediately afterwards, Stephanie sees an article in the sports section of the newspaper that shows Kimmie Gibbler getting hit in the neck with a foul ball at the game.  Well isn’t that convenient!??!  I wish that I could stumble upon newspaper articles that debunked lies people told me at exactly the same moment that the lie was taking place.  No one would ever pull a fast one on me then.

All the kids from the Mighty Mutant Super Kids Club wait in Michelle’s room with her to find out why Danny called all of them over.  They ask Michelle what it’s all about and she says that she doesn’t know.  I like the idea that Danny called all of these kids up himself and invited them over.  Their parents must really not give a shit about them.  Danny comes into the room and tells the kids that they can have the Super Fortress that he bought if they let Michelle back into their stupid club.  The kids all exuberantly descend upon the playset but their enthusiasm is quickly extinguished when they come to the realization that Danny got ripped off and all the parts of the playset were replaced by figurines of U.S. presidents.

Danny is dismayed by this revelation because he got ripped off for $75, which all the kids laugh at him for.  Michelle tells them to all shut their fucking mouths and stop laughing at her idiot dad because at least he tried to buy their friendship on her behalf.  Danny hugs Michelle and the audience goes, “aww” and then he tells the kids that it was shitty of Michelle to tell him about the club, and also shitty that he told them that he knew about it, and maybe even shittier that he tried to buy their friendship back with an expensive toy, but it’s been pretty well established by this point that the Tanner family are all terrible people so what’s the point of reacting accordingly to it now, after so many years of inexplicable tolerance?  The kids all agree that it’s their lot in life to put up with Michelle’s stupid bullshit so they let her back into the club.  Hey, that’s two episodes in a row where the music never came on.  I’d say that this show was making progress but, aside from omitting that one terrible element, it’s clearly getting worse.

    seriously, what the fuck is Kimmie Gibbler wearing?

    That is a REALLY good question. Wow. Especially even more confusing when you consider how many people saw that outfit at some point before she went on camera wearing it. Did anybody at least try and say anything about it at some point?

    At least now Becky will finally know the names of the women whose STD’s she’s contracted.

    This line made me laugh very much :D.

    Michelle asks Danny for $39 dollars and he’s like, “fuck no,” then she asks Joey and he’s like, “sure,” and then he asks Danny to loan it to him. If that doesn’t completely summarize their relationship, I don’t know what does.

    So true *Nods*. Also, I never need to see Joey stick his tongue out again, kthx.

    As for Becky and Jesse’s storyline-I get why Becky would find it a little odd that Jesse would keep a T-shirt that reminds him of an old girlfriend, but at the same time, it’s all in the past, so it seems weird to get so bugged about it to me. And anyone who’s watched one of these kinds of sitcoms would know they’d make up and he’d tell her she was the most special woman in his life in the end anyway, so why bother at all, really?

    As for Michelle…*Throws hands up in despair*. I completely agree with your rant about that much-needed talk, of course, but we’ve clearly lost the battle on that one. I just love that Danny got so bothered over that. Just explain to her and her friends it was a mistake and let them decide from there whether or not they want to get over it.

And unless you or your husband were total shut-in types (and I mean no offense to the shut-ins of the world), chances are good you dated a few people at some point in your life before you got married. This should not be shocking news to your spouse. The number might be interesting, but yeah. There were others. That’s how you learn who is and isn’t “the one” for you.

      Angela, Kimmy dresses in nightmarish ways from time to time! As for Jesse’s sexual prowess, well the theory is that anyone you sleep with you sleep with their past conquests. The thing about the STDs reminds me of the Angel the Pool Boy skit on SNL with Ashton Kutcher who was Angel and he slept with his employer who was over 100 years old. She gave him a ton of STDs and some were so old they had rascist names like crabs Rangoon. Danny should tell Michelle’s friends that people do blab things they aren’t suppose to from time to time!

    Why didn’t he just write it once? Was he managing the Overlook Hotel when he wrote his list?

    Brilliant work.

    Some thoughts:

    1. What a healthy relationship Becky and Jesse have. They have been married for four years and have two healthy children, and yet they still need to argue over who was sluttier back in the day. Or is this just typical behavior for such a goodlooking couple?

    2. Thank you, DJ, for continuing to be the only Full House resident who experiences normal human emotions that make sense and for rectifying poor behaviors like a sympathetic human being.

    3. On to the A plot. It was pretty lame of Danny to spill the beans about Michelle’s club, but it was just a mistake. Parents forget that little insignificant things like secrecy of a club are actually important to kids. He needs to teach Michelle to graciously accept genuine apologies and not make the offender(s) grovel and put their lives in danger to appease her.

    OKAY now that that’s out of the way, allow me to share a precious anecdote about a secret club that I formed with one of my childhood girlfriends at age 8: The Sexy Club. For real. My friend Julie came over my house one day, and we decided that we were just so damn sexy that we needed to form a club. We ransacked my closet, tried on all of my (and my twin sister’s) new clothes, tied up the shirts so that our midriffs were exposed, put on my mom’s makeup, danced rather provocatively on my parents’ bed, and sung songs about how sexy we were. We even gave ourself “sexy names”: mine was Rosa Sexy.

    Now THAT was a club that we understandably wanted to be kept a secret from our parents. And it puts Michelle’s silly ninja one to shame.

    Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Excellent review.

    Wow. I’ve never been up so early to read FHR when it first “airs” on Fridays. So I apologize to everyone for bringing about this sign of the apocalypse! (I never am up at 9 am but for some reason I am today.)

    Anyhoo – this review was excellent. I so wish the characters would actually talk like Billy implies. If they actually used that sort of language I think the show could have been bearable. But then again, I am a major fan of foul language, so I could be biased on that.

    Before I even read it – I had the EXACT same thought about the Gibbler’s outfit. Seriously, what the fuck is up with that outfit? Those look like thermal underwear SHORTS. That’s all sorts of wrong and fucked up.

    I LOVE the 90s. That was just my decade and I get super nostalgic for it. But those clothes are not something I miss. A couple years ago when I was in a nostalgic mood I started re-watching Beverly Hills 90210 from the beginning and was laughing myself silly over some of the fashions.

      I’ve been rewatching 90210 recently (because I just inexplicably got SoapNet) and as someone who lived her pre-teen through teenage years in the 90’s, it has really been eye opening. I was OBSESSED with Kelly Taylor. I thought she was the coolest girl ever and would have done just about anything for her hair and clothes. Watching back now, though, well…she had some funky bangs, a lot of scrunchies, and she dressed like a bank teller.

      But not even the most heinous Donna Martin get-up could come close to matching Kimmie Gibbler’s outfit. It looks like a mental patient wearing a diaper put on a doll’s skirt and ran for it. She must have royally pissed someone off in wardrobe to be given that outfit.

    The only consolation is that Danny immediately throws the knife in the garbage afterwards.

    Hey, Danny’s cleanliness OCD issues finally resulted in genuine laughs! That’s gotta be a first.

    The twins see this and do the same thing, which the audience thinks is adorable.

    Once again, Studio Audience, you are wrong. Very wrong.

    The kids all get super pissed at Michelle for telling her dad about the club and expel her, which is probably the best decision they’ve ever made.

    Whomever first suggested expelling her should be immediately named their leader for life.

    Jesse comes in with his list of sexual conquests and it’s like a goddamn phone book.

    That’s fucking awesome, Jermsey! I love it.

    He shows it to her and it turns out that it just says “Rebecca” over and over again

    Oh, never mind. Way to lame up a good bit, Jermsey.

    As Joey and Danny escort Jesse’s battered frame out of the toy store, a seedy individual beckons them over to him and asks if they’re looking for Super Fortresses.

    Don’t fall for it, you guys! He’s just going to show you his penis!

    their enthusiasm is quickly extinguished when they come to the realization that Danny got ripped off and all the parts of the playset were replaced by figurines of U.S. presidents.

    As if eventually letting Michelle back in their club wasn’t dumb enough, this takes the cake. US President action figures just made the whole thing EVEN MORE AWESOME!

      I dunno, I would :). For one thing, even great shows have their “eh” episodes and moments, so it’d be interesting to see what you’d have to say about a show you love when it screws up with a storyline or a character or something. For another, there’s so much TV criticism out there nowadays, and I love reading some of it, I do, especially if it’s done as well as this site handles “Full House”. At the same time, though, it’s so rare to find people talking online nowadays about things they genuinely love, it seems, so it’d be nice to see some TV praise. And if it’s a show I or other readers haven’t seen, it’d make for a nice introduction and way to gain new fans! If I ever started a blog, I’d spend tons of time talking about shows, or bands, or movies that I love.

      Anywho, that said, however, I fully agree with your post at large, and also welcome you to the FHR comments section! Glad you’re having as much fun with this blog as the rest of us, and look forward to your comments from here on out :D.

    Thank you. Thank you.

    Thank.You.

    Wasn’t there an episode in the 2nd season or something where Jesse tried to buy Michelle love after fucking up at some shit as usual and Danny freaked out. Jesse blamed it on his dad bc his dad didnt care about him blah blah and bought him shit just to keep him the fuck away from him?

    I have just discovered this amazing, amazing site but to add to the Lisa hair discussion – the actress Kathryn Zaremba had just starred as Annie Warbucks, hence the cartoon red hair and belty singing voice.

    This episode has kind of a funny line in it not mentioned in the review and often cut in syndication. Becky makes up Larry Couchman as the name of one of her ex-paramours. When Jesse finds the list, he asks who the heck Bico Endtable is. Soooooooooo lame.

    Watching as an adult really sheds a light on how bad the Michelle parenting was.

    Oh, Aaron Bailey, what has become of you? You used to be such a cool ass dude and now you’ve been forced to pander to the whims of Derek and Michelle and the full house! Get out now! Get out before it’s too late!

    Oh man I wished I found this blog when he was originally posting this stuff, this is frigging hilarious.

    I was forced to watch this entire series numerous times because my older sister would bring her daughters over to my house every Friday and they were “obsessed” with this show.

    These episodes are on Nick at Nite so I’m purposefully going back and re-watching them just so I can read these reviews.

    I want to know where the hell did the twins go for this entire episode? They were mimicking Joey and then they left and disappeared.

    I though Joey’s tongue thing was really odd considering this was a kid’s show and Gene Simmons tongue act in the 70’s was all about mimicking cunnilingus.

    Seriously WTF, with Gibbler’s outfit? I think she’s wearing a wrestling singlet over long red underwear and a skirt that was 4 sizes to small so she had to wear it in the mid-drift area.

    D.J’s Macintosh was really expensive in the early 90’s. I think it cost about $1000-1200 and those printers were $300-400.

    I never understood why Gibbler was meeting Nelson at the Tanner house?? Made no sense even for this dumb ass show.

    It is amazing how accommodating they are to Michelle in this show. If one of the other girls did what she did, Danny would probably freak out and ground them for 2-4 weeks.

    Yeah, why doesn’t Joey have any money??

    I like to watch these episodes while I read your blog for extra fun…and what is driving me crazy is right now is in the first scene with the kids for some reason Michelle has one sock on and one sock off. WHY?!?!?

    “Hi is this Derek’s father? It’s Danny, Michelle’s dad. I’m wondering if Derek can come over to our house to play. No, Michelle won’t be here.”

      And he did that three times, too.

      “Hi, is this Lisa’s dad? Can she come over? Oh, no, she and Michelle aren’t speaking. I want to…talk…with her. She’ll be back around dinnertime.”
