Opening Teaser

In the kitchen, D.J. and Michelle are making breakfast. D.J. is cracking eggs into a bowl, and when Michelle says she wants to smash them, D.J. stops her and teaches her the correct way to crack an egg into the bowl, thus releasing the yolk and white at the same time. After an observation, Michelle decides to try it for herself and succeeds. She then shows D.J. her scrambling skills by dropping the shell of the egg she just cracked into the bowl, and mixing it with the other cracked eggs.


Becky and the twins come home from the hospital, and Becky's doctor has mentioned that it is common for new mothers to have mood swings. Nicky and Alex are still wearing their hospital bracelets. Michelle feels left out when D.J. and Stephanie are allowed to hold the twins, and she is not. Becky says she's too little, and Danny explains to Michelle that even though she is indeed five years old and her hands might be big enough to hold the twins, he reminds her that babies are very delicate, and she's not old enough yet.

Becky wants to take a picture of the twins for her mother, Nedra. In the picture, Becky wants Nicky and Alex to be wearing the specially colored booties that her mother made for them, but Jesse thinks that the booties are too girly-looking. Later, Becky removes the bracelets from the twins, but leaves the booties on them to tell them apart. Minutes later, while Becky is out of the room, Jesse removes the booties from their feet. It takes Jesse only a few seconds to realize that he can't tell Nicky and Alex apart without the bracelets and the booties. Then Jesse and Becky finally let Michelle hold one of the twins, and she is very careful.

Jesse frantically tries to solve the problem of telling the twins apart, because he knows how nuts Becky has been lately, and he wants to avoid the mother of all mood swings. So with the twins, D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy upstairs in Stephanie and Michelle's room, he wants them to keep a secret about this. To do this, he borrows Stephanie's "junior detective" kit, but she is not giving in until he tells her exactly what he needs it for, and he tells them the obvious (see above). The girls are shocked at this news, and Kimmy remarks that "even baboons know their own babies!" Jesse, thinking that Kimmy is a "baboon" herself, has one word for her as he shows her the door, and that is "out!", and that's exactly where she's going.

Finally, Jesse talks to Becky about it, and they use the boys' footprints, which were inked on paper, to identify them, through the use of Stephanie's "junior detective" kit and the original birth certificates.

Meanwhile, Danny is attracted to Vicky Larson, who is guest hosting on Wake Up, San Francisco while Becky is on maternity leave. Danny learns to his surprise that he enjoys Vicky's blunt outspokenness.
