|Next||I've Got a Secret|
When invited to Gia's place for a party, Stephanie arrives with Pictionary, not knowing exactly what kind of party it was. Danny is stricken with laryngitis. However, he feels even more speechless than he already is upon discovering that Stephanie had lied to him and went to a make-out party at Gia's apartment while Gia's mother Claire is working a late shift.
Meanwhile, Jesse is bothered by the fact that the new lead singer for the Rippers is Barry Williams (Greg Brady of The Brady Bunch), because the Rippers somewhat seem to be having more success with Barry than they ever did with Jesse.
Danny: Do you have any idea what your daughter's been up to?
Claire: Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound?
Claire: [about Gia] Well, I guess I should go upstairs and talk to her.
Danny: Well, just remember—when children seem the least lovable, it means they need love the most.
Claire: Do you always talk like a fortune cookie?
Danny: Actually, it was the Thought for the Day on my Ziggy desk calendar.
Danny: [Referring to Stephanie's punishment] Steph, let me put it this way. Before it can soar like an eagle, the young baby bird must stumble and fall, and spend two whole weeks grounded in the nest with no T.V.
Stephanie: Hey, is that from your Ziggy calendar?
Danny: No, but I'm thinking of submitting it.
During the scene where Danny and Claire are talking, Danny impersonates Marge Simpson of The Simpsons. Carolyn Omine, the writer for this episode would become a writer for The Simpsons five years after this episode aired.
During Jesse's nightmare about what his future will be like without music, Kimmy is seen wearing a similar attire to that of Peg Bundy from the sitcom Married... with Children.
