Rock the Cradle is episode twenty-six and the finale of season four of Full House. It originally aired on May 3, 1991.


Becky is thrilled by the sudden and unexpected news that she is pregnant. She tells everyone except for Jesse. Becky wants to tell him over a romantic dinner, but she can't get Jesse to listen to her because Jesse is obsessed with the fact that he and the Rippers will be going on tour for two months over the summer. When she finally does get him to listen, Jesse is excited about the pregnancy. He is torn between honoring his contract and remaining home with Becky – a dilemma ultimately resolved by, of all people, Michelle.

Also, Michelle makes up an invisible friend named Glen, because she misses her friends from preschool. Danny reminds everyone that D.J. had an invisible duck named Norton before making friends with Kimmy, who (along with Stephanie) finds it hilarious. D.J. reminds her family that it was a phase that she eventually grew out of, but her dad says she grew out of it the minute she started becoming friends with Kimmy.

In addition, the family plays Pictionary in the living room, and are annoyed by Michelle's guesses of "Big Bird" each time until she has her turn at the board, at which point everyone guesses the obvious.


Danny: Joey, Rebecca is pregnant.
Joey: Pregnant?!
Becky: Shhh!
D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy & Michelle: [hearing through the kitchen door, then coming through] Pregnant?!
Stephanie: Who's pregnant?
Joey: Uh, I am [sticking his belly out].
Michelle: Way to go, Joey!
Becky: Girls, I'm gonna have a baby.

Danny: Goodnight stars, Goodnight air, Goodnight noises everywhere.
