Season 8, Episode 20, “Up on the Roof”

Pre-Credits Gag:  Becky, Jesse and the twins come downstairs in the morning to find Joey passed out on the counter.  They make several attempts to wake him up but Joey just responds with cartoon character impressions before immediately falling back asleep.  He eventually wakes up and tells them that he was up all night inventing, which still doesn’t explain why he was sleeping on the counter.  He shows them his new invention, Silly-Doh, which is sort of a cross between Play-Doh and Silly Putty, then he gives it to the twins to play with.

Michelle comes downstairs and demands that Danny makes her an elaborate breakfast but he’s like, “tough shit.  I’m in a hurry, so your ass is eatin’ a bagel.”  Michelle’s like, “fuck all y’all, I’ma get up early tomorrow an’ make my own muthafuckin’ breakfast,” but then she realizes that she doesn’t know how to cook.  Becky offers to teach her how but then Jesse’s all, “bitch, yo’ ass can’t cook for shit,” and then Becky’s like, “fuck you, asshole. Who are you to criticize me when I’ve been supporting your worthless ass all these years, you greasy bastard?”  Becky mentions a fine dinner that she made for them in the past but then Danny and Jesse allude to all of the horrible shits that they took after they ate it, then Becky makes a very clear allusion to the fact that she’s not gonna fuck Jesse later because he’s being such a shithead, which is actually pretty awesome.

Since when is Becky a shitty cook?  It’s weird that they’re busting out these 11th-hour character traits, and always for the sake of some weak ass storyline.  It’s like they’re just totally out of things to do with these incredibly 1-dimensional characters so they’re just sitting around the writers room like, “well, we need some kind of story… what could someone by bad at?”

Becky and Michelle make plans to prepare dinner together later and then everyone but Jesse leaves because they all have actual responsibilities.  Kimmie Gibbler comes over and DJ tells her the idea that she thought up for their senior prank, which is to print up a fake school newspaper with joke articles.  Jesse tells her that her idea’s tame even by this show’s standards and then he briefs her about how, when he was a student at her school, he stole the principal’s toupee and sent it up the flag pole.  DJ and Kimmie Gibbler both say that they’ve heard all about that legendary prank but didn’t know that Jesse was the culprit and then they’re inspired to think up a really good prank of their own. DJ says that she’s super nervous about trying to pull off an ambitious prank because pranksters could potentially be expelled and not get into college if they’re caught, plus she’s, like, a total fucking square who never does anything remotely naughty.

Michelle and Becky join forces to make a meatloaf based on Becky’s Grandmother’s recipe but all of the measurements are ambiguous, like, “a smidgeon,” or “an inkling.”  Is that why Becky’s supposed to be a shitty cook?  Because her Grandmother wrote abstruse recipes?

Kimmie Gibbler comes into DJ’s room with her boyfriend, Dwayne, because we really needed to see that guy again.  Kimmie Gibbler explains that Dwayne has access to a big crane due to some plumbing gig he has (a perfectly reasonable explanation) and when they ask him about it he just says, “whatever.”  DJ, in a meta-moment, asks Dwayne if all he ever says is “whatever” and he says, “I guess,” adding further complexity to his character.  Kimmie Gibbler says that she wants to use the crane to hoist the principal into the sky, which would pretty likely kill him, but then DJ says that she has a better idea.

DJ has Dwayne lift the principal’s car onto the roof of the school with the big crane, which has got to be the most conspicuous prank imaginable.  Regardless, it goes off without a hitch and all the kids are pretty excited about pulling off the greatest prank ever.

Back at the full house, everyone praises Becky’s meatloaf.  Wait, so it came out well?  So what was the point of all that confusion over measurements?  Well, I guess it is pretty hard to fuck up a meatloaf…

Everyone says that they’re hella full but then Becky busts out the rest of the meatloaf, which has to weigh like 80 pounds.  She explains that she made so much because the recipe was designed to feed their entire trailer park, which makes perfect sense considering that the recipe had completely ambiguous measurements.  Anyway, everyone’s too full to eat anymore so she feeds some to the dog.

DJ and Kimmie Gibbler come home and tell Jesse about their prank and he swells up with pride.  DJ is all high off of doing something exciting for the first time in her incredibly boring life but then a storm starts a-brewin’ and she realizes that they left the car with the top down so the interior will be destroyed by the rain.  DJ remembers that the car has an automatic top so there’s no way to put it up without the car keys because it’s not like you can just throw a tarp over it or anything but then Jesse says that he can hotwire it so they all head back to the roof.

Back on the roof, Jesse hotwires the car and raises the hood with ease.  Kimmie Gibbler warns Jesse and DJ that a security guard is approaching so Jesse urges the girls to hide and let him take the rap.  Where was this security guard when they were lifting the car onto the roof with a big ass crane?  Jesse is apprehended and DJ is filled with guilt, but Kimmie Gibbler doesn’t give a shit at all.

Back at the full house, everyone continues to kiss Becky’s ass about how good her meatloaf was.  Stephanie comes in with the dog and tells everyone that he’s been barfing hella hard in the back yard.  Everyone speculates about what the cause could be for about 2 seconds before deciding that it must have been the meatloaf.

Everyone starts clutching their stomachs and wondering what they’re going to do because there’s like 30 of them and only one bathroom.  Becky tells them that they’re all being a bunch of dicks and that their symptoms are psychosomatic.  The twins come in from the other room and tell Becky that someone took all their Silly-Doh (Joey’s stupid invention from the pre-credits gag, remember?).  Becky then deduces that Comet ate it, which is why he got so sick.  Becky tells everyone to go fuck themselves for being hypochondriacs and shit-talking her meatloaf, and that’s the end of the Becky-is-a-shitty-cook storyline.

The security guard takes Jesse to the principal’s office, which doesn’t really make any sense, and then the principal comes in and scolds him.  This guy’s not really that old, considering that he’s supposed to have been the principal since Jesse was a student.

Jesse tries to nonchalantly exit the scene but the principal tells him that he’s going to have him arrested.  Jesse tries to weasel his way out of this but then DJ comes in and admits that she was the perpetrator of the whole incident.  Jesse, in his first unselfish act, continues to attempt to take the blame but DJ persists.  The principal asks DJ why she would do such a thing and the music comes on as she explains that she wanted to leave a legacy, which is kind of hard to do with an anonymous prank.  DJ didn’t even know that Jesse was the perpetrator of the previous legendary prank, and they’re close ass family members.  Anyway, in typical sitcom cliche fashion, the principal acts all angry before completely switching gears and saying that he loved the prank and only pretends to hate senior pranks because it’s part of the fun of it.

DJ doesn’t get in any trouble at all and then Jesse’s like, “what the fuck?  You were gonna arrest me when you thought I did it,” and the principal explains that he was going to press charges against him because he hates his stupid guts.  In the final moment, Kimmie Gibbler comes in and says that she found the culprit.  She pulls Dwayne in, who has apparently agreed to take the blame, and he says, “whatever.”  Whatever, indeed!

Alright, y’all, I hope to see you at the El Rio in San Francisco tomorrow night, Saturday the 21st, at 7 PM!  I’m not gonna be doing any documenting but it would be real cool if some of y’all would take pictures or video or something.  Ok super cool see you soon!

    “Whatever, indeed!” That line killed me. Another awesome post.

    Becky’s recipe calling for a smidgen of something for a giant meatloaf is especially ridiculous because a smidgen actually is a real measurement. It’s 1/32 of a teaspoon. In other words, not enough to make a difference in a giant 80-pound meatloaf.

    I hope you and the people who can make it have a wonderful time tomorrow!

    Wait, so did they carry the car all the way from the principal’s house to the school without anyone noticing? Or did the principal leave his car in the school parking lot overnight? If he did, why? Why am I trying to make sense of this show? There’s never been a show so incoherent that it made my head hurt. Not even “Heroes”.

Doesn’t he, like, go home or something? It’s clearly nighttime when they hoist it up there–it must be super late when they return to put the roof up.

      Also, continuity errors– didn’t Jesse not graduate high school or something? And Michelle CAN cook; there was a whole episode about it a few seasons back where she was making all these weird-ass dishes like ice cream + tuna or pudding with olives in it.

    I thought for a while there at the beginning that this was gonna be a very special episode about Joey’s alcoholism. It would’ve even made sense, if I was such a worthless asshole I would totally drink myself to death every day.

    Kimmie acted all oblivious about the fact that the school had a newspaper, when DJ mentioned her idea of a prank. Didn’t she use to work on that newspaper? Oh Kimmie, why you so silly?

    And yeah, hotwire the car seems like the most reasonable thing to do to save the interior from getting wet. That’s like those movies where a man puts his coat in a puddle so the lady can walk on it to prevent her shoes from getting wet. Just fucking go around the puddle, lady!

    This was a pretty spectacular review. A lot of Becky’s plot lines lately have had to do with everyone pointing out that she suddenly sucks at something, which makes sense because she’s the only one who’s had on going success in her career and the member of the full house are all dicks.

    “Kimmie Gibbler says that she wants to use the crane to hoist the principal into the sky, which would pretty likely kill him…” This line killed me. So simple and elegant.

    And this: “Stephanie comes in with the dog and tells everyone that he’s been barfing hella hard in the back yard.” I love that he’s clearly been sick and yet she still brings him inside. Wouldn’t Danny have a problem with the dog potentially covering his floors in puke?

    Alright, so it’s obviously night when they’re putting the car on the roof so I wondered how they obtained the principal’s car since it would presumably be in his garage. However, the guard takes them to the principal so presumably he was there all along?

    Let’s recap. DJ, Kimmie and Dwayne drove a crane to the high school and lifted the car on the ceiling without the principal, security guard, and whomever else is there not hearing. Then they go home, eat dinner, decide to go back and the principal is STILL there? He also presumably never tried to leave since he wasn’t aware his car was missing. Does he not have a life? Does he live at the high school? How did everyone get to the roof anyway? Isn’t the door locked? And is the damage caused by hotwiring a car any better than the damage caused by rain? And…as you said Billy, just throw a tarp over it.

    Also, is that really a good prank? Nobody will actually see the car up there; it’s on the roof!

    Anyway, my freshman year of high school the seniors did a prank where they played music over the loud speakers. Then, in my sophomore year, the seniors’ decided their “prank” would be to have no prank at all. Everyone would just be waiting for the other shoe to drop, so-to-speak. Yeah, it was lame as it sounds and it set a precedent. We’re lazy teenagers and once one senior class got away with not doing something then every senior class after that followed suit.

    However, I should add that in my senior year I placed a toilet on my high school’s parking lot entry sign. I didn’t consider it a senior prank at the time (I just needed to get rid of a toilet) but I can say it was now!

In the Michelle boxcar episode, Becky was bad at building cars and then she all of a sudden wasn’t. In the episode where they were singing the twins to sleep, Becky was bad at singing and then she all of a sudden she wasn’t. Now in this episode, she was bad at cooking and then she all of a sudden she wasn’t. Those writers really stretched their imaginations with those plots.

Anyway, the line was: “Fuck me if I’m wrong, but is your name Yolanda?” Since Yolanda is a very uncommon name around where he lived he was pretty much guaranteed that the girl would have to fuck him since he was wrong. lol Again, don’t know if he ever actually used the line (I’ll have to ask him) but whenever I see/hear the name Yolanda it makes me think of that.

    To clear the whole principal car being there and he not being around to see it….it was said I think by DJ at one point that the principal was at “the game” that night and I believe it was away. Which would explain his absence from seeing anything. The security guard….well when are security guards ever presented as anything but inept? Lol

      No, Vicky was an okay cook, she just made yummy things that the kids wouldn’t eat, like pesto.

        Oh you’re right! She made something with goat cheese and the kids wouldn’t eat it. Didn’t Danny think she was a bad cook or something and then bribe the kids with cash to say it was good? My memory’s fuzzy in that episode.

  24. Everyone starts clutching their stomachs and wondering what they’re going to do because there’s like 30 of them and only one bathroom. To be honest i think there only 10 of them and 3 bathrooms the main one one in danny’s room and one in the attic (which because everyone has one there)

    When I was a senior, our “prank” was that we all dressed up as zombies one of our last days. It wasn’t great but hey, it was something. My best friend spiked his schools ketchup with acid. Now THAT was a senior prank.

    This episode is flawed from the ground up (like most) but thank you, Billy ❤

    Have a good holiday, everyone!

    The low-budget special effects strike again: when the storm approaches we get very fake-looking lightning that looks like a child slowly switching a white light on and off, accompanied by thunder sound effects that at times sound like they were coming from a record player! (I swear I could hear the record start up before one of the thunders.)

    Though I did find Jesse’s fake-surprised “It’s a wig!” amusing.
    Also note the title; perfect for this time of year. “Up on the rooftop, reindeer pause…”

    Buzzfeed wrote an article pointing out how much of a clusterfuck the FH Christmas special was, and I thought it’d be appropriate to share here, even though said episode was reviewed several weeks ago.

    Hi everyone, I have left a few comments since I discovered this blog in August an I have sadly caught up with the reviews. This blog got me through some very stressful days. I will be very sad when the blog ends. Hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Billy you are so close to the end now and it will be a great loss for us all. I also have to say I enjoyed this show growing up and my kids watch it on Nick at Nite now. I remember when I was younger one of my Aunts hated this show because of Michelle, it wasn’t until I started watching the episodes then reading the subsequent review that I realized how evil she was.

        Hi Bridget, I have enjoyed your comments. I too am in a medical administration program. I obtained my Associates degree in August and decided to continue my education, which has been the source of my stress. I decided to take a break from my degree program and get into medical coding also. I am in Western New York and the Allied Health field is huge here. Best of luck in your program as well!

    I’m catching up (friggin’ holidays) but I actually remember this episode! Mainly because as a kid, the idea of a senior prank- and getting away with it- seemed like such an incredible thing to me.

    By the time I was a senior, there was no elaborate plot or plan to the class prank. Some kid just let a bunch of farm animals go in the hallways, and while walking to my English class with a bunch of ducks was admittedly kind of funny- the smell by last period after they’d all successfully shit in every corridor of our school made it less humorous.

    Go class of 2004.

    I remember a rumor at my high school that one year, the seniors brought a cow into the school, walked it upstairs, then left it there. Apparently, cows can walk up stairs but not down them, and the school didn’t have an elevator.

    I remain dubious as to the truthiness of that rumor.

    My class, however, pulled no prank, because we were largely apathetic about such things. Even our 10 year reunion was a half-assed affair setup on Facebook, because no one could be bothered to organize it in any official way.

    Jesse tells her that her idea’s tame even by this show’s standards and then he briefs her about how, when he was a student at her school, he stole the principal’s toupee and sent it up the flag pole.

    And let’s be clear here, Jermsey, your prank is still pretty tame.

    Becky tells everyone to go fuck themselves for being hypochondriacs and shit-talking her meatloaf, and that’s the end of the Becky-is-a-shitty-cook storyline.

    Also, its entirely possible that the meatloaf could have made Comet sick but not everyone else. There’s tons of stuff that makes dogs sick which people eat all the time, and plenty of that could end up in meatloaf. Espeically one that big.

    saying that he loved the prank and only pretends to hate senior pranks because it’s part of the fun of it.

    Everything’s coming up Full House!
