Opening Teaser

Becky, Nicky, Alex, and Michelle are all in the living room, as Becky asks her youngest niece to watch the twins while she goes and gets them some more cookies. Michelle also wants some, but her aunt says she's already had dessert. While Becky heads into the kitchen, Michelle tries to play a game with the twins by having them identify their body parts, and one of them finally gets the knack.


Danny tells Jesse that KFLH 95.6 (radio station) is looking for a new afternoon disc jockey. It is a job that Jesse would love to have. At the TV station, Mr. Strowbridge sticks Joey with a co-host on The Ranger Joe Show, and his new co-host is Jungle Jenny, who is Mr. Strowbridge's wife.

At the radio station, Jesse arrives to talk to program director Julie Hartman about the job, and just before Julie calls him into the broadcasting room, Joey shows up to support Jesse. Julie invites Joey into the broadcasting room along with Jesse, and Joey starts reeling off insulting jokes at Jesse. After Joey leaves, Julie hires Jesse to fill the vacant afternoon slot at the station, as long as Joey works as his partner. Jesse does not like that idea because he is angry at him for insulting him on the air.

Joey is annoyed to no end by Jungle Jenny, so he decides that he does not want to be Ranger Joe anymore, and quits his job, leaving Jenny to take over the show. Joey and Jesse work things out and take the job at KFLH.

Meanwhile, Stephanie's teacher assigns her to write a short story. Unable to come up with any other ideas, she chooses an argument between Steve Hale and D.J. as the inspiration for her story. When D.J. and Steve calm down and make up, Stephanie secretly interferes and heats things up again for the sake of her story. When Danny, D.J., and Steve catch on to what she is doing, Danny explains to her that she can't disrupt people's lives just to make her story more interesting. She apologizes to both D.J. and Steve, and they forgive her.


[D.J., Kimmy, and Steve arrive from school and walk into the kitchen.]
D.J.: I can't believe you gave Kathy Santoni a ride home!
Steve: Hey, she was loaded down with books.
D.J.: Yeah, and six pounds of makeup!
Kimmy: Ding! End of round six. So far, I've got this fight scored even.
D.J.: Kathy is such a bimbo! She even signed up for shop class ‘cause she thought it was taught at the mall!
[And as D.J. and Steve head upstairs, that gives Stephanie an idea for her story.]
Stephanie: Hmm...'The Young and the Jealous'.

[While D.J. and Steve are in the kitchen, Stephanie is the living room, working on her story. She slips a piece of paper in Steve's book and, hearing their presence looming, quickly hides in the alcove.]
[They enter the living room to continue their homework.]
Steve: [pulling out the piece of paper in his book] Hey, what's this? 'Dearest D.J., I'll never forget our kiss in the lunchroom on Macaroni Day. Love, Henry.'? [gets up] Who's Henry?
D.J.: [also gets up] I don't know a Henry.
Steve: Then why'd you kiss him on Macaroni Day? [as Stephanie writes]
D.J.: I didn't kiss him on Macaroni Day, or Fish Stick Day, or any day! [She reaches for the letter, but he crumples it up and puts it in his pocket.]
Steve: Yeah, right! Where's my jacket? I'm outta here. [He heads upstairs.]
D.J.: Steve, wait! [She follows him.]
Steve: [angrily] How could you do this?!
D.J.: I did not kiss him! Steve!
Stephanie: This is pure gold.

[Steve comes downstairs with his jacket on as D.J. follows him, trying desperately to explain.]
D.J.: Steve, somebody wrote me that note to get me in trouble.
Steve: [angrily] I'll tell you who's in trouble: Your macaroni man, Henry.
D.J.: Steve, I told you...
[He tries to leave, and she tries to stop him.]
Danny: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Excuse me. Did you say 'macaroni man, Henry'? You know what, you guys? You might wanna take a look at Steph's latest story.
[He hands it to them, and they can't believe what they see.]
D.J.: This is incredible! I don't believe this!
Steve: Yeah, the same thing happened to us!

[Danny comes downstairs, as D.J. and Steve prepare to give him some big news.]
D.J.: Dad, we have to talk.
Danny: That’s what dads are for.
Stephanie: Well, this dad better sit down. [He does so, and she rolls up the placemat she had her milk glass on.] Here, bite on this. [He takes it but doesn't bite on it.]
Steve: Mr. Tanner...Dad...I wanna marry your daughter.
Danny: [tossing the placemat aside] What?! You've only known each other for 3 months! What took you so long, son? Aw. [He hugs Steve.] [to D.J.] Come here, sweetheart. Ohh. [He hugs her.]
All 3: [as they hug] Aww.
[And that shocks Stephanie.]
Stephanie: Dad! You can't be serious.
Danny: Why not? It'd work out great. They could live right here with us. They could take your room, and Michelle could take D.J.'s room [and thus, both would get their old rooms back].
Stephanie: Where am I gonna sleep?!
Danny: Oh, yeah. I forgot about you. We could put a bath mat in the laundry room.
Stephanie: That's where Comet sleeps.
Danny: Oh honey, that'd be great. You could keep each other warm.
Stephanie: Dad, you can't do this to me.
D.J.: Why not? It'd make a good ending to your story.
Stephanie: [her head slowly turning, her eyes slowly widening, and her slowly smiling upon hearing those words] My story? You read my story?

Jesse: I'm not gonna work with some Bullwinkle brain.
Joey: Dippity doo head.
Jesse: Bullwinkle brain!
Joey: Dippity doo head!
