Believing that it is his only shot at a record deal, Jesse agrees to the conditions of the deal. But it does not suit him when, during the shooting of the music video, he is forced to dress up in Aladdin-style clothing and dance around. That turns Jesse against the record deal. Jesse finds himself with no job and no prospects, but he, fortunately, has plenty of loved ones to help him get through the bad times. Jesse fears that, with a wife and two children to support, he may have no choice but to accept the deal.
Later, Jesse bluffs Fat Fish Records, saying that another record company would pay him to do the song his way. They agree to release "Forever" as the ballad it was written to be, and a video for the song airs on MTV.
Meanwhile, Danny finally decides to allow D.J. to spend her summer in Spain, but only on the condition that she write to him every week. And Kimmy needs to pass a Spanish exam before she can go. D.J. decides to help her study in D.J.'s room. That night, just when they are about to get some shut-eye, Danny approaches, and the girls work to trick him into thinking everything in the bedroom is normal. Kimmy hides under the covers and imitates D.J., while D.J. herself hides in the closet.
Michelle gets her cooking badge, and then tries to earn enough money to get an ant farm. With Joey's help, she starts a lemonade business inside the house, meaning no lemonade stand. The price is a dime a glass, and to make things even more bizarre is the sign on her back: "Sorry No Change" (in contrast to proprietors of normal lemonade stands routinely making change for their customers￼). in contrast to normal
