Sea Cruise is episode five of first season of Full House. It was first broadcast on October 16, 1987.

The guys go on a sea cruise, where Danny does not catch a single fish. Jesse is mad at Roxanna, an old girlfriend of his, because she became famous.


In the living room, Jesse is working on a new song, and Joey wants him to see something "really extraordinary". That "really extraordinary" something is Michelle being able to walk, as Danny videotapes the whole thing (eliciting cheers and applause from the studio audience). Jesse tells Danny that Michelle has been walking for three days and he has not stopped taping her since. Jesse himself will feel sorry for her once she starts potty-training.

Then, the girls come downstairs in their Honeybee outfits, with D.J. officially "retiring"—not only as Queen Bee but from the Honeybees as a whole. In true fashion, she passes the "crown"—in this case, antennae—on to Stephanie. The guys are videotaping the moment, and they have them do the secret Honeybee hello—which D.J. asks that they not include on the video.

While the girls are out visiting their grandmother, the guys decide to go out for a day of all-male bonding, fishing on a yacht. It turns out that the captain of the yacht is a woman named Caroline (the granddaughter of their original Captain Jack), and there is also an all-woman band on board the yacht, led by Jesse's former girlfriend Roxanne. Jesse is still angry because Roxanne's band, which Jesse put together for her, has made it big while Jesse and the Rippers are still playing dives, and Danny feels uncomfortable around Caroline because he is scared that he is becoming attracted to her at a time that he thinks is too soon after Pam's death to become attracted to another woman.

The next day, the guys realize that their "dates" did not turn out the way they wanted. It eventually turns into a fight that involves all three of them, as Joey wants to see Danny and Jesse in the kitchen pronto. While they had nice times with the ladies, none of them are ready to commit to actual dates yet.

Danny says (as the inspirational music plays) that while he likes Caroline, everything's been so confusing after Pam's death. Joey explains to both of them that life's a struggle, and the people at your side are the ones that get you through those tough times. He tells Jesse that he should not push away Roxanna because he is frustrated that she has a record deal and he does not, and Danny should not push away Caroline just because he is not ready to date again after his wife's death. He tells them that if they keep doing this, they could be throwing away potentially great friendships. They then hug each other (as the music stops and the audience applauds).

Danny decides that he and Caroline should just be friends, and Jesse admits to Roxanne that he was insanely jealous of her. Roxanne tells Jesse his time will come soon, and Jesse says someday that'll happen; however, as of right now, he's freewheeling, riding on the wind, and living on the edge.

Just as Jesse finishes speaking, the girls come home, and Stephanie asks him to help get her "stingers" off (as Jeff Franklin's EP credit appears), and he does so. He then clarifies to Roxanne that he is living on the edge—of cuteness—and gives Stephanie a hug (as the audience applauds and Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett's EP credits appear).


The title of this episode is the name of a 1959 top-20 hit song.
