Save the Dates is the twelfth episode in the first season of Fuller House. It originally aired February 26, 2016. 


D.J. has a date with her past that catches her off guard, while Kimmy's date with Fernando is nothing but surprises.


  • Prepare to get twisted, sister. —Stephanie Tanner (See Trivia.)


  • When Stephanie challenges D.J. to a rematch of the game Twister, she makes a confident remark (see Quotes), which is an allusion to the 1980s glam metal band, Twisted Sister.
  • On their way out the door for their retro, 1990s-themed date, Steve mentions that he has Alanis Morissette playing in the car. D.J. responds with "Oh, you know who that song is really about?" The song she is referring to is "You Oughta Know" (off Morissette's 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. She and Dave Coulier (Joey) dated in the early 1990s, and although she has never officially named Coulier as the target of the song's scathing attack, urban legend holds it as an overwhelming likelihood. Coulier has mentioned in interviews that many of the lyrics from the song hit close to home and echo personal experiences the couple shared.
  • When Jackson lets Max win at Jenga, Max taunts him in the style of heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali – declaring himself "the greatest of all time," shadow-boxing at Jackson, as well as notably (and somewhat disturbingly) shouting "Ali boma-ye! Ali boma-ye!" at him, which is what the crowd in Kinshasa, Zaire chanted at Ali's 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" championship title defense versus George Foreman. The phrase means "Ali kill him! Ali kill him!"
  • Steve and D.J. try to relive their dating memories (in a scene now known as "Ghost burger"; see Gallery) by "recreating" a famous scene from Ghost (1990 film), and singing (or botching) the song "Unchained Melody".
