|Previous||Joey's Funny Valentine|
When Jesse's beloved grandfather Papouli arrives from Greece for a visit, the man fills the entire house with his loving and lighthearted perspective on life.
Jesse's grandfather, Lorgos "Papouli" Katsopolis, is back from Greece for another visit. The family finds it pleasant to have Papouli around. One morning during Papouli's visit, everyone goes to wake him up after Michelle has gone to school – only to discover that Papouli has died in his sleep. His death was caused by heart failure. When Michelle arrives home from school later that day, Danny tells her that Papouli has died. Michelle is devastated, and it turns out that only one person can comfort Michelle, and that person is Jesse, who is taking it just as hard.
Meanwhile, Kimmy and D.J. argue over a pair of sunglasses, but Papouli's death helps them realize that friendship is too important for them to argue over a pair of sunglasses.
Michelle: Papouli was supposed to come to school today, to teach my class the Greek dance.
Jesse: I'm sorry, kiddo.
Michelle: I was afraid that if I went to school and Papouli wasn't there, I'd feel sad.
Jesse: Michelle, it's okay to feel sad.
Michelle: But if I feel sad, I might cry. And then I can't be brave for you.
Jesse: Michelle, where'd you get the idea you needed to be brave for me?
Michelle: From Stephanie. She said you were so sad, we shouldn't make it worse.
Jesse: Oh sweetheart, Stephanie.....she probably thought she was telling you the right thing to do, but she was wrong. I'm gonna talk to her about that. Michelle, we should always share our feelings with each other. That's what makes us a family.
Second (and last) appearance of Papouli, who passes away in the middle of this episode. This is also the only time he meets any of D.J.'s friends (Steve, to be exact).
