Opening Teaser

Michelle comes into Joey's room asking if he's seen her stuffed pig. She tells him she's looked everywhere to no avail. However, thanks to him playing the blues on his harmonica, she remembers that she left him in the kitchen, and goes downstairs to find it.


At age 33, Danny feels like he does not have as much youth in him as he used to, so he starts dating 21-year-old Kirsten, a free-spirited college student who has a lot more in common with D.J. than she does with Danny. It turns out that Kirsten does prefer older men...but not necessarily Danny. She kisses Danny, and he starts to regret letting her go.

Meanwhile, Jesse becomes an unsuspecting participant in Michelle's preschool graduation program, and D.J. graduates from eighth grade. As D.J. prepares to move on to high school and Michelle prepares to move on to kindergarten, Stephanie feels left out because her third-grade year has ended without a graduation ceremony. Stephanie feels a bit left out of all the festivities revolving around D.J. and Michelle. The guys come up with a solution to the problem, by giving Stephanie her own graduation at home, complete with high heel shoes.


  • Van Atta Junior High School is named after producer (and later co-executive producer) Don Van Atta
  • The episode title is likely a take on the 1967 Academy Award nominated film The Graduate
