Full House Scripts - Season 8

Episode 192 * Michelle Rides Again (2)

Summary of part 1:

Joey: Last week on Full House...
Michelle: Dad, guess what, there's a jumping contest next week, and I really wanna be in it.
Morgan: Enjoy your little fantasy, because in reality my Elizabeth wins this competition every year.
Danny: Well, not this year, because Michelle Tanner is gonna kick your butt.
DJ: So far my prom is looking like a bag of chips and our remote control.
Kimmy: Nobody knows you're available, I'll put the word out.
DJ: Kimmy, what did you do? Raid a Star trek convention?
Jesse: Guess what wacky dj's have an audition for their own wacky tv-show? We're gonna tack team wrestle Sven and Ingmar, the Swedish Spleen Stumpers.
Joey jumps down and misses the couch...
Stephanie: I hear some noise within, dear love adieu.
Andrew: And we kiss.
Michelle: I knew it, dry lips.
Andrew: See you later, Steph.
Stephanie: Michelle, I can't believe you're doing this to me, I'm never gonna forgive you.
Michelle: Look, we skip the contest and we just go riding on the trail, for fun.
Michelle's horse stands up, and Michelle falls off...
Elizabeth: Michelle! She fell off her horse
Danny: Michelle? Don't move her.

There's some confusion abouth whether the first scene of this episode was actually shown on TV, as it's not on the DVD version of the episode, but as it is in this script, it must have been broadcasted some time. So if anyone has information about this, please let me know.

At the Hospital waiting room:
DJ: What's taking so long? Michelle's been in there for hours.
Danny: Honey, she took a pretty hard fall. I'm sure they're going to come out here and tell us as soon as they know anything.
Joey: (carrying a tray of drinks) Okay, I got 2 coffees, a tea, a hot chocolate, and an empty cup. That machine owes me 60 cents!
Stephanie: Just put it down next to the other stuff we didn't drink. (Stephanie points to a table full of paper cups with different drinks).
Jesse: All right, everybody, we're just a little nervous. We have to find something to do besides pace around this room.
Joey: Right. (No one can think of anything, so Jesse starts pacing around the room).
Becky: (coming into the hospital waiting room) Hey.
Danny: Hi.
Becky: I dropped Nicky and Alex off at Aunt Ida's. Any word on Michelle?
Danny: Last we heard, she was still unconscious.
Becky: (disappointed) Well, it could be a long night. Aunt Ida made some coffee. (Everyone groans).
Joey: Just add it to the collection.
Jesse: What was she riding off with that girl anyway for?
Danny: I know, I know. She didn't want to compete. I put too much pressure on her. This is all my fault.
Jesse: No, it's not your fault; this is nobody's fault. We just need to sit down and relax, and you know what we need, coffee. We need more coffee. (Jesse starts to go the coffee vending machine).
Danny: (stopping Jesse from going) No, no more coffee.
Doctor: (coming into the waiting room) Mr. Tanner.
Danny: Right here. How's she doing?
Doctor: Michelle's out of danger.
Danny: Oh, thank God. (Everyone else is relieved also). When can we take her home?
Doctor: Well, she's just regained consciousness. We'd like to keep her overnight for observation.
Jesse: What are we doing here? Let's go see her.
Doctor: I think for right now, it'd be best if only the immediate family went in. (Everyone gets up to go to Michelle's hospital room). (Doctor laughs). Perhaps, then just the parents. (Jesse, Danny and Joey get up to go to Michelle's hospital room). Hey, who am I to judge.

We find Danny, Jesse, Joey and the doctor entering Michelle's room at the hospital...
Danny: Hi honey, how do you feel?
Michelle: Okay, but my head hurts.
Danny: Look sweety, you had an accident, and you fell of your horse. And you hit your head. I'm so sorry I put so much pressure on you.
Michelle: That's okay. Who are you?
Danny: Michelle, it's daddy.
Michelle: Okay, you're daddy, so I must be Michelle.
Jesse: Doc, what's going on here, she's completely out of it.
Doctor: Well, memory loss is very common with head injuries.
Danny: Oh my god, how long is it gonna last?
Doctor: Well, usually it's just temporally,.
Joey: Usually?
Jesse: So, what are we supposed to do, I mean, how does it get better?
Doctor: For right now, the best thing you can do is threat Michelle as normally as possible. Surround her with familiar things and go on with your regular activities.

We find Stephanie in the kitchen when somebody knocks at the door...
Stephanie: Oh, hi, Andrew.
Andrew: Hi Steph.
Stephanie: Come on in.
Andrew: I heard about your sisters accident, I'm really sorry.
Stephanie: Thanks, she's coming home today, but she still doesn't remember anything.
Andrew: Well, if you don't wanna rehears Romeo and Juliet for dramaclass, I understand.
Stephanie: No, it's okay, really.
Andrew kisses Stephanie on the mouth quickly..
Stephanie: What was that?
Andrew: The part of the scene I usually skip. I mean, I was wanting to kiss you, but I wasn't sure if you wanted to kiss me. But when Michelle said you had a crush on me, I thought it might be okay. Was it okay?
Stephanie: Well, I could use a little more rehearsal.
They kiss again, as DJ walks down the stairs...
DJ: Wow, if that's a pizza guy, he really does deliver.
Then Kimmy and Duane walk in...
Kimmy: Deej, great news. Oh, hey blondo, is this that guy that rather runs than kiss?
Stephanie: Not anymore. Uhm, Andrew this is Kimmy.
Kimmy: Hey, and this is Duane, my main squeeze.
Andrew: Hi Duane.
Duane: Whatever.
DJ: So Kimmy, what's the great news?
Kimmy: Deej, your prom worries are over. Duane's cousin Wayne has agreed to be your date.
Stephanie: Does he have the same sparkling personality as you, Duane?
Duane: Whatever.
DJ: Well, thanks Kimmy, but I rather stay home and take care of Michelle.
Kimmy: Well, I'll put him on hold. He's a magician so he already has the tux. He just has to clean the dove poop out of the pockets.
Stephanie: if you want to excuse us, we're trying to rehears a scene from Shakespeare.
Kimmy: Oh, really? Well, Duane's a Shakespeare freak. Aren't you, my little Hamlet and cheese?
Duane: Whatever.
DJ: Shakespeare, Duane?
Duane: Shall I compare thee to a summers day, thou are more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buts of May. And summer's lees had all too short a date.
DJ: Duane, I didn't know you had such a sensitive soul.
Duane: Whatever.
We find Jesse, Joey, Becky and the twins in the living room, where Jesse is finishing a story he was reading to the boys...
Jesse: And the announcer said: Elvis has left the building.
Then Stephanie and DJ walk into the living room, with a phone...
Stephanie: Hey you guys, dad's on the phone, he's on his way home with Michelle. Dad, when are you gonna be here?
Danny: (Walking in) Before you can say 'dad, when are you gonna be here?'. Come on in Michelle, don't be scared. Look everybody, Michelle's home.
All: Hi Michelle.
Michelle: It's nice to see you all again.
Stephanie: Do you remember us?
Michelle: Aren't you the nice people I met at the hospital?
Then Comet runs to Michelle, who gets scared...
DJ: Comet just wants to say hi.
Michelle: Do I like dogs?
Jesse: Yeah you love dogs.
Michelle: Oh, good. Hi little girl.
Jesse: Uhm, uh.. boy.
Michelle: Oh. So, do you all live in the neighbourhood?
Becky: Uh, we all live in this house.
Michelle: Oh, I hope that it's bigger than it looks from the outside.
DJ: Michelle, does anything look familiar?
Michelle: Well, it looks like a nice place to live, but I just don't remember living here.
Danny: Hey girls, why don't you take Michelle for a little tour on the house?
Stephanie: Michelle, please keep your hands and arm inside the tram for all time.
Michelle: Do we have a tram?
DJ: Just stick with us.
The girls walk away...

We find the girls entering Stephanie and Michelle's room...
Stephanie: And this is our room.
Michelle: Are you sure I don't live in that room across the hall with all the toys?
Stephanie: No, that's Joey's room. But he's very good about sharing.
Michelle: He's my uncle, right?
DJ: No, Jesse's our uncle.
Michelle: The guy with the hair.
DJ: Right, and he's married to our aunt Becky, and they have two kids, our cousins Nicky and Alex.
Michelle: How many bathrooms does this place have?
DJ: Not enough.
Then Joey walks in with Mr. Woodchuck...
Joey: hey Michelle, look who's here. It's your old buddy Mr. Woodchuck.
Mr. Woodchuck: Hey Michelle, remember me? I hope you ....wood! I've really been pining for you.
Michelle: How come everything he says is about wood?
Joey: Well, because that's the bit we do, remember?
Michelle: Clever.
Then Becky, Jesse and Danny walk in...
Becky: Michelle, we were just talking and we thought maybe if the guys sang you your favourite bedtime song, it might help bring back some of your memories.
Michelle: Sure, give it a shot.
Jesse: Okay, check this out Michelle, we used to always sing this to you. Joey?
Joey is listening to Mr. Woodchuck, who's whispering in his ear...
Jesse: Joey! It's a sponge with eyes, come over here. (To Michelle) Okay, see if you remember this, okay?
The guys start singing...
Jesse: Oh baby let me be,
Danny: your loving teddy bear
Joey: put a chain around my neck and leave me anywhere
Jesse: Oh let me be,
Jesse & Joey & Danny: Oh let him be
Jesse: Your teddy bear
Jesse & Joey & Danny: Whap dowadda wadda, whap dowaddawadda
Jesse: I just wanna be your teddy bear
Jesse & Joey & Danny: Oooooh!
Michelle: Doesn't ring a bell. Can I ask a question?
Danny: Sure, anything.
Michelle: You're my dad, right?
Danny: Yeah, that's right.
Michelle: So, where is my mom?
Danny: I'm sorry, but your mom died when you were just a little girl.,
Michelle: So even if I do get better, I won't remember her?
Joey: Well, Michelle, we will tell you everything about her you wanna know.
Michelle: Was she pretty?
Jesse: Michelle, she was very pretty. You see, your mummy was my sister. And you know what? You look just like her.
Michelle: I know you all want me to remember, but I can't. I'm sorry.
Danny: Oh, don't worry about it honey, it's fine.
Michelle: It's not fine, I don't know who I am. I'm just gonna lie down in my own bed.
Michelle gets into Stephanie's bed...
Stephanie: Uhm, uhm, Michelle, that's my be...
Becky: Uhm, Steph, this is not really a good time.

The next morning we find the twins running into Stephanie and Michelle's room...
Nicky + Alex: Michelle, Michelle, Michelle.
They go to Michelle's bed, where Stephanie is sleeping and wakes up...
Stephanie: Over there.
Nicky + Alex: Michelle, Michelle, Michelle, Michelle, Michelle
Michelle: What do you guys want?
Nicky: Do you remember yet?
Michelle: I know you're my cousins. Sorry, I wrote your names down somewhere.
Alex: You said we could have this. (He holds a stuffed animal)
Michelle: Well, if that's what I said. Go ahead, take it.
Nicky: She didn't say that.
Alex: Ssht!
Stephanie: Hey Michelle, before your accident, we had a fight.
Michelle: Really?
Stephanie: Yeah, I feel awful about what I said, I said I was never gonna forgive you.
Michelle: Why? What did I do?
Stephanie: It was nothing really, it was just a stupid argument. But it turned out okay. Thanks to you, I found out that Andrew really likes me. In fact, he finally kissed me.
Michelle: Well, I'm lad everything worked out.
Stephanie: I'm really sorry about what I said. So do you accept my apology?
Michelle: I guess so. Do you feel better now?
Stephanie: It would feel better if you knew where I were talking about.
Michelle: I would feel better if I knew where everybody was talking about.

We find Jesse working on a kids bike in the kitchen...
Jesse: Hey munch kin, could you give me that ranch, please?
Michelle doesn't react.
Jesse: Munch kin? Hey you with the Pretzel.
Michelle: Me? But I thought my name was Michelle.
Jesse: It is. But sometimes I call you Munch kin, shorty, or rug rat.
Michelle: hey, what did I ever do to you?
Jesse: Nothing, you love those names.
Michelle: Why?
Jesse: Because it is part of our special relationship. You see pal, you and I go way back. You see, I remember the first time I saw you. It was at the maternity ward, and I was looking through the window looking at you and I waved. And you know what? You looked back and I was sure you smiled at me. Of course the nurse said it was gas, but I won't buy it.
Michelle: Wow, we know each other for a long time?
Jesse: A long time. It's funny, when I moved in here to help raise your kids, I never thought one day you were helping me raise mine.
Michelle: Sounds like I had a pretty nice life.
Jesse: You had a beautiful life.
Michelle: I just wish I could remember it.
Jesse: Don't worry Michelle, you will. You just hang in there. But most important, remember that I love you very very much.
Michelle: I guess I love you too, right?
Jesse: You used to.
Michelle: Can I eat my pretzel now?
We find Jesse entering the living room, when Joey walks down the stairs in his wrestling cape...
Joey: Jess, listen. You and I have to have a serious talk
Jesse: You know, that would be a lot easier if your underwear was inside your pants.
Joey: Jess, I know we have to do this whole wrestling bit for our tv audition, but I've got to tell you, I was upstairs putting all this stuff on, and I realised, my heart's really not in it. I'm sorry, Jess.
Jesse: Ah, well, Joey, don't be sorry, I feel the same way. You know, since Michelle's accident, I really have been thinking about my priorities, you know. And anything that's gonna take more time away from my family, you know what, I just don't have time in my life for it.
Joey: There's nothing that's more important than your family.
Jesse: Right, you see, I can see you gonna have kids some day. And you're gonna be a great father. There's nothing like looking down at that beautiful baby in your arms, and knowing that you created it. Of course, you will have to find a woman first, you know.
Joey: Yeah, it would be nice to hold something warm and cuddly that didn't always talk about wood.
Jesse: It will happen for you pal.
Joey: Tanks Jess.
Then Michelle walks in...
Michelle: Is it just me, or is this family hugging off a lot?

We find Danny, Becky and DJ in the living room..
Danny: DJ, I really think you should go tonight. You only get one senior prom.
Becky: Yeah, my prom was wonderful, I felt just like Cinderella.
DJ: Did you meet prince charming?
Becky: No, but I lost my shoe, had a mouse in my car, and my date had a head like a pumpkin. But the pint is, it's your prom. You'll remember it forever.
DJ: Well, I know the prom is special, I went to Steve's and it was the most romantic night of my life. But I just don't know how to have a good time, when Michelle's home, scared and confused.
Michelle: I'm ruining everybody's fun.
DJ: No Michelle, I didn't mean it that way.
Michelle: Which way did you mean it?
DJ: I just want you to feel better.
Michelle: How's skipping your prom gonna make me better?
DJ: Well, actually it won't.
Michelle: You feel bad if you're missing your prom, I feel bad when you're missing your prom. One of us should go to that prom.
DJ: Well, I would go, but I think it's too late now. Even if Duane's cousin was ready, I still don't see how I'm supposed to get a dress and shoes and everything by tonight.
Becky: Oh, I can help you with that, I'm a speedy shopper. When my sister was a [low ping] I had one hour to get a hairdo, a dress and a ladder. I meet you in the car.
DJ: (Hugging Danny) Thanks. See you later Michelle. (She hugs Michelle)
Michelle: More hugging.
Danny: Michelle, I have an idea. Why don't we take a look through the old family photo album?
Michelle: Why? I don't remember anything.
Danny: Yeah, but let's just give it a shot, it might help. Look at you, that's you, so cute. This is you in your honeybee outfit. You see, it's not easy to pull of that antenna look.
Michelle: I don't remember.
Danny: Okay, this was taken when we went to Hawaii.
Michelle: Nope.
Danny: Okay, we were all in Disneyworld, you were princess for a day.
Michelle: I don't wanna see any more pictures, I hate this, I can't remember anything.
Danny: I know how frustrating this must be for you.
Michelle: No you don't, you know who you are.
Danny: I'm sorry honey, maybe have been trying a little too hard.
Michelle: It's okay, I'm a little tired, maybe I I'll take a nap.
Danny: What are you doing?
Michelle: Waiting for my hug. I thought that's what you do in this house when you leave a room.
Danny: Right you are.

We find Michelle in her room, sleeping...
Michelle 2: I remember this room, I remember these walls. I remember this bed. I remember it all.
Michelle: Who are you, and why do you remember everything?
Michelle 2: That's my job, I'm your memory.
Michelle: Where the hack have you been, I've been looking all over for you.
Michelle 2: I know, when we fell off the horse, I got scared and I hid. I hope I didn't cause you any trouble.
Michelle: Duhhuh! I'm walking around in this house with an empty head, and I'm hugging people I hardly know.
Michelle 2: Well, get ready, because once they realise that I'm back, you're gonna hug wild.
Michelle: Oh, great.
Michelle 2: Don't worry. Once you remember how much you love them, you will join them right in.
Michelle: Please, don't ever leave me again.
Michelle 2: I won't, I promise. Uh, we're supposed to hug now.
Michelle: Why doesn't that surprise me.
The two Michelles hug...
Michelle 2: Ready?
Michelle: Ready.
Michelle's memory gets into the real Michelle...

That night in the living room...
Stephanie: You guys got to see DJ's prom dress, she looks incredible.
Danny: Okay, come on baby. Come to papa, all right, work the camera, honey.
Becky: Deej, you're gonna have such a special evening with... whatever his name is.
Michelle: Hi guys. DJ, you look beautiful. Nicky, Alex, what are you doing with my Rigby, I told you last week you couldn't have him.
Alex: We're busted.
Stephanie: Last week? Michelle, do you remember something that happened last week?
Michelle: Why are you talking with me Steph, you said you were never gonna forgive me.
Stephanie: She thinks I hate her. Isn't this great? Oh my god! (She lifts Michelle and turns round)
Michelle: Put me down.
Jesse: Wait, wait. Michelle, come here. This may sound a little weird, but I want to put this to the test. What is my favourite comb?
Michelle: Mister Goodpart.
Jesse: Bingo!
Danny: Michelle, what day do I always vacuum the stairs?
Michelle: Every day.
Danny: That's right and it was a trick question.
Joey: What's the capital of Nevada?
Michelle: I don't know.
Joey: She never knew that, her memory's back.
Danny: This is wonderful, all right!
Michelle: Is everybody nuts? What's going on?
DJ: Michelle, you fell off your horse, and hit your head.
Becky: And you couldn't remember who you were or any of us.
Michelle: How can I forget you guys? You are my family.
Danny: You don't know how happy I am to hear you say that.
Then Kimmy walks in in her prom dress...
Kimmy: Attention, shut-ins! It's prom night. (Then lights on Kimmy's dress start burning)
Stephanie: Nice dress, Kimmy. Is that a purse or a battery pack?
Kimmy: Battery pack.
DJ: Kimmy, Michelle got her memory back.
Kimmy: She lost her memory? Oh yeah, I forgot. Hey Deej, by the way, Duane's cousin couldn't make it.
DJ: What? You mean I'm not going to the prom?
Kimmy: Don't worry, I scrunched up another date for you.
DJ: I'm afraid to ask.
Then Steve walks in...
Steve: Come on Deej, let's get going, I don't wanna miss the buffet.
DJ: Steve!
DJ and Steve hug...
Steve: I missed you Deej.
DJ: I missed you so much.
Then they kiss, and after that Steve says hi to everybody...
Steve: I heard you had a pretty tough week. How are you feeling, Michelle?
Michelle: I'm feeling better. How out of it was I?
Jesse: Oh, pretty out of it. I mean, you were here, sweetheart, but it was like part of you was missing. It sure was like part of all of us was missing. But, we stuck it out and we got it through.
Joey: Just like we always do.
Danny: Just like we always will.
