|Next||Cutting It Close|
Disappointed when Danny won't let her cut school to get an autograph from a famous music star, D.J. concocts an alternate plan when her father leaves town on business.
When D.J. hears that Stacey Q will be at a local mini-mall to give out autographs, and knowing that it would mean meeting Stacey Q in person, D.J. wants an autograph, and she will do absolutely anything, no matter what it takes, to make it happen. The problem is, the signings are scheduled to take place during school hours. So D.J. decides to secretly skip a day of school to get the autograph. She gets Jesse to mention how he once secretly and successfully skipped a day from school, and D.J. pulls that same trick on Jesse and Joey. D.J. and Kimmy head to the mini-mall and get in line to get an autograph – but they never expected Joey to show up, because they didn't know that Joey had made plans to get the autograph for D.J. and surprise her with it after school.
- This is the first time Danny was out of town overnight.
- The song that is playing in the background when D.J. and Kimmy go in to get an autograph from Stacey Q. is Don't Make a Fool of Yourself. She also had another hit in 1986 called Two Of Hearts.
D.J.: Kimmy gets to go. Why can't I?
Danny: Because you're not Kimmy. I don't know why Kimmy's going, but there's a lot of things about Kimmy I don't understand.
Danny: D.J., come here. Why did you do what you did today?
D.J.: Because I wanted that autograph more than anything.
Danny: Do you know what the worst part is about what you did?
D.J.: That I cut school?
Stephanie: That you tricked Stephanie?
Danny: That you were selfish. All you cared about was D.J.. You did whatever you had to do to get D.J. what she wanted, even if it meant lying and hurting other people.
