A Tommy Tale is episode thirteen in season three of Fuller House.


While D.J. tries to get Tommy into a prestigious preschool, Jackson and Ramona participate in a Pioneer Play at their school.

However, to make sure they're really in the right time period, Kimmy and D.J. ask the kids to hand over all modern items... including tech stuff and, in Jackson's case, a bag of Doritos (see Quotes). The kids, in turn, challenge the ladies to go tech-free for the entire day (just like them). But the challenge ends up going from hi-tech to lo-tech in a matter of minutes and even Stephanie gets in on the action (see Quotes).


[After Kimmy finds another tech device under Ramona's bonnet...]
D.J.: [to Jackson] You too, Davy Crockett. [going through Jackson's coonskin cap to ensure all his modern stuff is gone, but voila...] I don't think pioneer kids were eating Doritos.
Jackson: How do you know? You weren't there. Or maybe you were.
Kimmy: [looking at her phone] OMG! Look at this cat flushing a toilet! [As she and her best friend watch the video, the kids rush over.] Ah, ah, ah! There were no toilet-flushing kitties in the frontier. Come on, one day without your precious social media isn't gonna hurt.
Jackson: [scoffs] Oh yeah? Let's see you unplug for the day. [And with the gauntlet thrown, the challenge's answered.]

[Later, during the challenge...]
D.J.: Tommy's doing great... and so am I. Emily gave me three stars today. Two for being cute and one for being quiet. [But when she sees her best friend using a mallet to whack a huge wood block with hard candy on it, this begs the question...] What are you doing?
Kimmy: Playing Candy Crush.
D.J.: Oh, I see. You don't miss your phone at all.
Kimmy: [writes something down on a Post-It note and giving it to her best friend] Ding! [a.k.a. the text sound]
D.J.: What's this?
Kimmy: A prehistoric text.
D.J.: [reading the "text"] "Give me my phone back or else!" Delete [by crumbling it up and returning it]. Hey, I have to go back to Tommy, and you... [notices her best friend holding a placemat up in front of her face] What are you doing?
Kimmy: I'm blocking you. [follows her out the door with the placemat still up, then walks back to the kitchen] And now I'm unfollowing you.

[Then, after Kimmy gets her phone back, Stephanie walks downstairs.]
Kimmy: Steph! You haven't accepted my friend request!
Stephanie: It's been a busy two years.
