Plot Summary

Stephanie is rehearsing her ballet moves for her first ballet recital that evening (see Quotes).

Danny is waiting desperately for Michelle to say "da-da," and when she finally does, it is to Jesse and Joey! Fearing that his long work-hours are negatively impacting his relationship with his children, Danny takes the girls on a string of father-daughter outings. Jesse, meanwhile, reluctantly agrees to give Joey some lessons on how to be cool, but the process turns out to be more strenuous than they expected.

Guest Stars


[D.J. carries Michelle downstairs and puts her in her playpen.]
D.J.: Now, Michelle, stay right here. ... Where you gonna go? You're in a baby jail.
Joey: I'm ready for Stephanie's recital. You think the shirt and tie go [together]?
D.J.: Well, I think the shirt and the tie should go [away].
Stephanie: [dancing around in a tutu with a tape player and headphones on her] One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.
Joey: Stephanie, you've been rehearsing for three days straight. You're this close to ballerina burnout.
D.J. & Joey: Stephanie.
Joey: Stephanie.
D.J. & Joey: [removing the headphones] Stephanie!
Stephanie: I am not Stephanie. I'm a swan who's about to kick the bucket. [And to show the meaning, she twirls into a collapse.]
Joey: Oh, God. There's a dead swan in the living room!

[Danny comes home.]
Danny: Sorry I'm late. I was editing my feature on great moments in bowling and I got held up when I couldn't find a second moment.
D.J.: Oh, Dad, after Stephanie's recital, we hit the big sale at the Fashion Mart. Everything is half off.
Danny: Of course, that doesn't save me any money, because you'll just buy twice as much stuff, right?
D.J.: I like your attitude.
Jesse: [coming downstairs in a spiffy suit] It's Saturday afternoon, I'm all dressed up and where am I going?... a munchkin ballet.

[The doorbell enters, and Adrianna enters.]
Adrianna: Ciao.
Danny: Jesse, it's for you.
Joey: How do you know she's not here to see me?
Adrianna: Jesse!
Jesse: Adrianna! Have mercy!
