Five's a Crowd is episode twenty-three in season five of Full House. It originally aired on March 31, 1992.

Plot Summary

Jesse's recording studio is used by "The Funky Tongues," the hottest band in D.J.'s school. Jesse, Becky, Danny, and Joey then start preparing to go to a local awards ceremony where Wake Up, San Francisco and Ranger Joe have been nominated for awards. Danny is bothered by the fact that Wake Up, San Francisco gets beat every year by Up and At 'em, Oakland.

D.J. has a date, so Kimmy Gibbler will baby-sit Stephanie, Michelle, Nicky, and Alex. During this time, the twins make a huge mess of the house, even marking up the place with markers. When Kimmy sees them marking up the TV in the living room, she screams at the top of her lungs. D.J.'s date shows up, and it is Pete, the lead singer of The Funky Tongues. Pete takes D.J. to a drive-in movie. Danny flips out when Jesse tells him that Pete is exactly like Jesse was at his age – in a band just to score with girls. Danny becomes even more frantic when Kimmy tells him that Pete has never heard the word "no".

Danny, Jesse, and Joey send Becky to the awards ceremony with Joey's puppet, Mr. Woodchuck, and then the guys go to the drive-in and intrude on D.J.'s date as if they were a SWAT team, absolutely humiliating D.J., who had already told Pete no.

The guys take D.J. home, where a furious D.J. blasts the guys by accusing them of overreacting and not trusting her judgment. The guys apologize for overreacting, and D.J. apologizes for neglecting to tell them she was going to a drive-in movie instead of a regular indoor theater. D.J. admits that she neglected to tell them because she knew that they would overreact and humiliate her, and that was the last thing she wanted. The guys do not want to stop her from dating, so they promise that they will not act like a bunch of commandos whenever she goes out on a date.

At the awards ceremony, Joey wins an award for best children's programming for the Ranger Joe Show. And Wake Up, San Francisco gets beat yet again.

Trivia

The episode title is a play on the phrase "Two's company, three's a crowd" (Three's a Crowd is also the title of a spin-off of the sitcom Three's Company—both were also ABC shows).

Quotes

Danny: How about, uh… ‘What an incredible surprise. I only wish I would’ve prepared a speech’?
Becky: [smiles a little] Danny, give it up—we’re never gonna win. Every year, Wake Up, San Francisco gets beaten by Up and at ‘em, Oakland.
Danny: I don’t know what people see in that show.
Becky: Cheerleaders wrestling in a syrup pit?


Danny: Jesse, about that kid Pete that you worked with today—what do you think of him?
Jesse: He’s a good kid.
Danny: That’s a relief. D.J. just went out with him.
Jesse: What? You let her go out with that animal?
Danny: You just said he was a pretty good kid.
Jesse: He’s in a band. All he thinks about is girls. He’s exactly like I was at seventeen.


Danny: Deej, we need to talk. You can’t keep giving us the silent treatment.
D.J.: OK, fine, let’s talk. I am totally humiliated! When this gets around school, I’ll never be asked out again! But that’s what you wanted, isn’t it? [storms upstairs]
Jesse: I think we were doing better with the silent treatment.
