D.J. goes on to explain that at ''her'' sleepover, she looked at those girls who did have a mother and felt the same way Stephanie does for those girls who didn't have a mother at ''that'' time, and when Stephanie asks how she can make the feeling go away, D.J. then explains that it's hard, but something that helps her is that she realizes that Stephanie is special in the same way ''she'' is, in that they have something the other girls don't have; namely Danny, Joey, and Jesse, and more importantly, each other.
