Polka fiesta (Full house)

Now that his new band, Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, is officially underway, Jesse invites Becky and the twins to accompany him on a trip for their very first weekend gig. They stop for the night at Manny's Motel, which is where Jesse and the Rippers stayed at years ago while on tour. The place is not the same as it was back then. The motel has gone downhill since, and Jesse becomes preoccupied with feeling old. To top it off, the club wants Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets to play polka music.

Meanwhile, major sparks fly between D.J. and Viper, one of Jesse's grungy young band members, and it seems that Danny has already made up his mind about him without getting to know him. When Danny expresses his discomfort about them being together, D.J. ends up making a very uncharacteristic decision. She goes along with Jesse and the band to be with Viper, and Danny hits the roof. When Danny finds D.J. at the club, she helps him realize that he has to respect the fact that who she dates is for her to decide, and he admits that he trusts her judgment.


[Becky puts a quarter in the TV and the bed starts vibrating]
Becky: If a slot in the TV turns the bed on... [She puts a quarter in the slot on the bed and hears the toilet flush.] That's a good thing to know.
Joey: Anyone got change for a twenty?

Jesse: Oh my God. I'm starting to sound like my father.
Becky: Actually, you're more like my mother.
Jesse: Oh, yeah, right. Like I make dry pot roast and talk back to Matlock.
Becky: Do you think my mother was happy when I started dating you?
Jesse: Uh-huh.
Becky: No! I had to show her there was more to you than long hair and a Harley.
D.J.: Yeah, there's more to Viper too.
Kimmy: Yeah. Have you seen him in tight jeans?
