Opening Teaser

Danny and Joey are playing Go fish, when Michelle shows them her skipping abilities as she sings "Skip to My Loo". Danny praises her, but he notices that one of her feet did not join in the skipping, so he demonstrates the proper way to do it. But Joey says that Danny skips like the Tin Man, and asks him to "put some oil in those joints". They all try it when Jesse comes downstairs, and they explain the situation to him. He tells his "little Munchkin" that if she wants to be hip, "skip the skipping. Work on the strut." She follows suit.

Plot Summary

D.J. organizes a benefit at The Smash Club to raise money for a new computer for the school, and Danny will be the host of the benefit show. D.J. quickly arranges for Jesse and Joey to lend their musical and comedic talents to the event, and the speed of those decisions is not lost on Danny. Feeling that he is not the kind of "cool dad" that D.J. might respect more at her age, Danny wants to sing a song at the benefit in order to prove to D.J. that he is cool; the song he has chosen is "My Generation" by The Who. However, D.J. is embarrassed when she comes home from school with Kimmy and sees him performing the song with Jesse and the Rippers in the living room. She tells Danny that if he sings My Generation at the benefit, she would be very humiliated — so much so that she’ll never be able to show her face in school again.

Meanwhile, Michelle has learned to play the game "Hot and Cold". However, she takes it too far when she hides Becky's wedding ring (which Jesse had given to Joey in order to send it to an engraver) in a cookie jar. Joey must find it, unaware that Jesse has already found the ring in the first place.

After she talks Danny out of it, D.J. still does not feel any better, because she now believes that she has made him feel hurt. D.J. apologizes to him at the benefit and tells him to "bust a move". However, instead of "My Generation", Danny decides to sing "My Girl" by The Temptations (as he said he once sang that song to D.J. when she was little). He does a good job of it, and D.J. smiles proudly, and everyone else heads out to sing and dance on the floor (as the audience applauds and the EP credits appear).


D.J.: Dad, what are you doing?
Danny: Oh, uh, I’m busting a move... and my shoulder.
Jesse: [takes microphone from him] Give me that.
Danny: Honey, I wanted to surprise you. I’m gonna sing this at your fundraiser.
D.J.: You were gonna do that in public? All my friends will be there.
Kimmy: You mean your former friends.
Jesse: All right now, girls. [to D.J.] Your dad has a very good voice. Just need to tie him down to a chair, that’s all.
D.J.: Dad, you can’t do this to me. I’ll never be able to show my face in school again.


The episode title "Ol' Brown Eyes" is taken from Frank Sinatra's nickname "Ol' Blue Eyes".
