The I.Q. Man is episode three of season four of Full House. It originally aired on October 5, 1990.


Jesse and Joey have prepared a commercial for a cologne company. The client, Ms. Garland, wants Jesse to play the main role in the commercial. Ms. Garland, who finds Jesse attractive, demands that he wear a lot less than he is willing to wear in the commercial, and when Mr. Malatesta tells Jesse that he has no choice but to do what Ms. Garland says, Jesse and Joey decide to stop working for him.

On career day at D.J.'s school, after Danny is chosen after having to find a replacement for Connie Chung, the family encourages Jesse and Joey to continue to work together in the advertising business, but without Mr. Malatesta. So, with the help of a loan from Danny, who wants to be a silent partner, Jesse and Joey decide to open up their own business, changing the name from Double J Creative Services to Double J&D Creative Services.

Meanwhile, the cure may turn out to be infinitely worse than the disease when Michelle plays nurse for Stephanie, who is confined to bed with a bad cold. But when Michelle picks it up later, Stephanie turns the tables on her.


Connie Chung was co-anchor of the CBS Evening News from 1989 to 1993, alongside Dan Rather. She is married to talk show host Maury Povich.


Joey: (to Mr. Malatesta about Jesse) This man is not a hamburger, and I am not a side of fries, and you, sir, are a... Chicken McNugget!
Jesse: Joey, are you gonna quit or order a Happy Meal?

Mr. Malatesta (to Jesse): Katsopolis, let me explain your options to you. Either you do it, you do it or you do it.
Jesse: What was the second one again?

DJ (to Danny): Dad, remember Jimmy Chung? The pathological liar?
Danny: Oh, I'm just taking a shot here, but, uh, he couldn't get his Aunt Connie, huh?
Kimmy: He doesn't have an Aunt Connie.
DJ: His name's not even Chung.

Jesse: Hey Joey. Got bad news for JJ Creative Services. The bank turned down our business loan.
Joey: How could they do that?
Jesse: Oh, I don't know. Maybe because we have no experience running our own business, no collateral, no credit rating. Why do you think they turned us down?
Joey: Hey, just because you're cranky and unemployed, don't take it out on me.
