On Wake Up, San Francisco, Danny and Becky have a special guest named Edna, an elderly yet feisty woman who, despite her age, still goes bungee-jumping, and Edna invites Danny and Becky to jump with her. While Danny declines, Becky accepts Edna's offer, as she is inspired to spice up her own life with this thrilling new experience. However, although Jesse ironically has always been a bit of a risk-taker himself, he hits the roof when Becky decides to accept Edna's invitation and get the crew of Wake Up, San Francisco to videotape the jump. Jesse does his best to talk her out of it, but his efforts only result in friction between them. Finally, after a talk with Joey about it, Jesse decides that Becky is right, and that she does want to spice up her life; he and Becky then end up doing the jump together.
Meanwhile, Joey accidentally wins two tickets to a Counting Crows concert, and he decides to give the tickets to D.J. and Stephanie. However, Michelle feels like she is always being left out while her sisters get to do things they find to be cool. So, to be included for once, Michelle gets D.J. roped into taking her to the concert, when D.J. would rather take Stephanie to the concert. D.J. and Stephanie set out to trick Michelle into giving the ticket back to Stephanie. Michelle does give the ticket back to Stephanie. When they learn why Michelle wanted to go to the concert in the first place, D.J. and Stephanie feel their guilty consciences kicking in, and promise to include Michelle with them more often whenever they do something cool.
- Becky reveals that when she was ten, she had gotten the nickname "Lowboard Donaldson" after becoming scared of the high diving board at a swimming pool.
- Danny reveals that he got the nickname "Shallow End Tanner" at a swimming pool by some sophomores when he was in college.
- Even though the show is set in San Francisco, the actual bridge where Jesse and Becky go bungee-jumping is the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, California, 380 miles south of San Francisco.
Jesse: Listen, I know why you’re doing this. You’re trying to get back at me for all the times that I made you worry. Well, you know what? It worked; I’m worried. You win. Sit down, relax, have a muffin. (takes a muffin from the plate and puts it on the table)
Becky: Jess, this has nothing to do with you. I’m doing this for that little girl back in Nebraska — Lowboard Donaldson.
Jesse: (looks puzzled) Is that your cousin with the one eyebrow?
Becky: That’s Celeste.
Jesse: Oh, oh, oh.
Becky: I’m Lowboard. When I was ten, I went to the public swimming pool with all my friends, and we decided we would jump off the high diving board. Well, I climbed all the way to the top, I took one look down, and I chickened out. By the time I got back down to the bottom, I had a new nickname: Lowboard.
Danny: You know, I can relate to that, actually. You won’t believe this. I got my nickname at a swimming pool too — “Shallow End Tanner”. (sighs) College sophomores can be so cruel. (Jesse and Becky give him looks)
