Just One of the Guys is episode eighteen of the first season of Full House. It originally aired on March 4, 1988.


Steve, the 17-year-old cousin of D.J., Stephanie and Michelle is coming to visit the family. Having grown up idolizing Steve, in spite of his former nerdy nature, D.J. is soon disappointed that Steve has changed quite a lot since she last saw him, with no more zits, glasses or braces; instead, he now has clear skin, the braces are off and the glasses have been replaced with contacts. Steve also prefers to hang out with the guys in the household than the girls—which includes the disappointed D.J., and that may cause her to resort to drastic measures so she will not be left out.

After an unsuccessful game of touch football, Danny explains that Steve is becoming a young man, and to make matters worse, Steve's dad is moving out, so he needs his uncle more than ever. D.J. still doesn't understand that, so Steve comforts her and has a talk with her in her room, where she finally understands what's going on.

After the chat, she decides to have him repeat the greeting from earlier, and then promises to take her ice-skating. They hug (and the scene freezes as the EP credits appear).

Guest star

Cousin Steve is played by Kirk Cameron, Candace Cameron's brother, who was at the time (and still probably best known for) playing Mike Seaver on Growing Pains.


  • Starting with this episode and continuing to the end of Season 2, the show airs at 8:30 PM (ET)
  • The end-of-episode inspirational music plays three times in the episode (the 3rd at its proper point): First when she talks to Michelle, then again with Danny; both regarding Steve; it plays again when D.J. and Steve talk to each other in her room
  • The first (and possibly only) episode to have the last scene freeze as the EP credits appear; this usually occurs on other sitcoms, such as its sister show, at the time, Perfect Strangers
  • Goof: When Danny and Steve leave Michelle's room, they walk out of the door of where Jesse's room should be, and Michelle's decals (from the door) are on the door of Jesse's room as well
