Angels' Night Out

When D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy plan a girls night out, Joey babysits Jackson, Max and Tommy for $4 an hour plus all the Sunny Delight he can drink. The boys plan OGG: Operation Get Gladstone. It was three years ago that Joey ambushed, humiliated and toilet papered them. Step one they lull the victim into complacency - Joey doesn't suspect anything. Step two they use Joey's childlike innocence to lure him into their booby trap - the boys send down a red balloon that Joey follows but doesn't trip the wire instead Jackson and Max get themselves caught in the trap.

While making a sub in the kitchen Joey hears Tommy crying but what he finds is a phone and a sneak attack from Jackson, Max and Tommy. The boys stand over a defeated Joey, as he stands he congratulates them for finally getting one over on him. Joey admits that he never saw it coming and in fact he is so impressed that he will clean up while the boys hit the showers.

Joey reads to Tommy as D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy come home. Jackson and Max come down stairs screaming Joey's name. Joey gave them the old classic dye-in-the-shower prank which turned Jackson and Max purple.

The Prom

Once the cook-off is finished Stephanie, Kimmy, Fernando and Joey watch Beaches.

A Modest Proposal

When Let's Get Married starts playing a flash mob emerges on the street. D.J., Stephanie, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Jimmy, Cosmo, Matt, Rocki, Ethan are joined by back-up dances for the big proposal. Fernando removes Kimmy's cast and she gets up and starts dancing. D.J. is confused, this is not what they practised. Jesse and Joey tango up to D.J. together. Danny tells D.J. he had to be there for her big moment. With D.J. still confused, the dancing stops and Jesse plays soft music on his guitar. Steve comes walking through the crowd and asks Danny for his blessing. Steve get's down on one knee in front of everyone and proposes. To which D.J. responds "Yes. Yes. A million times yes".

If the Suit Fits

When Joey reveals he left his children at home, he is greeted by D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy. Joey announces he is throwing the three newly engaged couples an engagement dinner and they're all invited. He has also invited special guests Mr. and Mrs. Gibbler.

At the engagement party held at the Yacht Club at Fishermans Wharf Joey celebrates with D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, and Jimmy. Kimmy thanks Joey for the night ahead and for reconnecting her with her parents. Kimmy is going to ask her father to walk her down the aisle at her upcoming wedding. Betty arrives with a singing telegram advising Kimmy and Jimmy that their parents cannot come. Betty hands Kimmy a bottle of wine and leaves as an upset Kimmy runs out of the room. D.J. and Stephanie go to follow her but Joey stops them and goes to talk to Kimmy instead.

Joey finds Kimmy hiding amongst the coats in the coat room. Kimmy explains that her parents were always like that way, that's why she spend so much time at the Tanners house. Joey reveals he didn't have the greatest family life either and that's why he spent so much time with Danny and Jesse. Joey and Kimmy discover they both have more in common then they knew. Kimmy realises that her parents won't be at her wedding. Joey requests that he would be very honoured if she'd let him walk her down the aisle on her wedding day.

Joey, D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy all raise glasses and toast "to family, the ones you're born into, and the ones you make". With Kimmy adding "And the ones you dress up like". Cheers!

Cold Turkey

Danny, Jesse, and Joey arrive to celebrate Thanksgiving. They park Joey's new car on the back lawn. Kimmy runs out to the backyard and tells them to stop fighting, which they weren't. D.J. and Stephanie also enter the backyard to greet their visitors. Stephanie hands Dani to Danny.

D.J., Stephanie, Danny, Jesse, Joey, Jackson, and Max watch the Thanksgiving parade on TV together, from the living room. When Danny asks D.J. when dinner will be ready, Stephanie informs him that she is cooking this year. Sick of their complaining about not having their traditional Thanksgiving side dishes, Stephanie sends Danny, Jesse, and Joey to Uncle Monty’s Sandwich Emporium to get the turkey out of the smoker.

After Danny and Jesse retrieve the turkey, Joey calls them into the walk-in freezer. Joey imitates Rocky Balboa by punching hanging meat. As their backs are turned, the freezer door closes. Joey goes to open the door to find it locked. Jesse attempts to open the door but pulls the door knob off. Danny tries to phone the girls but there's no reception.

The guys take turns holding the warm turkey in their laps. They wonder why the girls haven't rescued them yet. Jesse mentions that Danny originally didn't want Joey to move into the house all those years ago, which upsets Joey. Jesse makes Joey a scarf out of sausages. Danny explains that after losing Pam it felt strange to have a comic move into the house. He had young kids and Joey had crazy hours. Danny is thankful he gets to spend his life with both Jesse and Joey. When Jesse hair gel freezes his hair comes off in clumps. Jesse breaks though the glass window of the freezer door. He climbs half way through, reaches down and opens the door from the outside. Danny and Joey run out but come back to help Jesse out of the door.

After Fernando, Kimmy, Ramona, and Jimmy finish their dance number to America, Danny, Jesse, and Joey arrive back from Uncle Monty's and head straight into the kitchen. They are shocked to discover Stephanie has backed Joey's car into the side of the house... just like when she was 8 years old. Joey is upset about his car.

D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, Jimmy, Danny, Jesse, Joey, and Dani eat dinner in the living room. Stephanie apologises for driving the car into the kitchen again, but can't guarantee it won't happen a third time. D.J. knows she makes a really big deal about traditions but for her Thanksgiving is about the people you love. She promises to make way for new traditions. Stephanie and Jimmy give Dani her first piece of solid food, pumpkin puree.

Our Very Last Show, Again

D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Danny, Joey, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy arrive home after the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. It's Tommy's bedtime and he wants D.J. to read him a book. Ramona says she'll read to Tommy because it could be her last chance before she moves away. D.J. is still living in a bubble of denial, where nobody is moving out and they only talk about happy things.

When Jimmy notices the time, the grooms have to leave. He believes bad things will happen if he, Fernando, and Steve see their brides-to-be after midnight. Jimmy returns when he realises he left his phone behind. Stephanie tosses it to him. Jimmy's phone alarm alerts him to the fact that is now midnight, and Jimmy is looking at Stephanie on their wedding day. He covers his eyes and runs out.

Danny, Jesse, and Joey are proud they did a good job raising the girls. They raised confident, resourceful women. When D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy arrive home, D.J. calls everyone to the living room. She explains that they have nowhere to have the wedding. D.J. has an idea: have the ceremony in the backyard. Danny is happy because it will be so much cheaper. Kimmy will take care of the furniture, linens, and flowers. Stephanie is in charge of the music. Ramona will alert the guests. Max will call the girls hair stylist. Danny gets a text from Pastor Tim, who has another assignment for a high-profile celebrity wedding. Danny will find another officiant.

With only three hours until the wedding, Danny and Joey interview several candidates to officiate. Larry wants to stop the wedding. Derek Boyd sings Say It's Only a Paper Moon. After being married four times Gia Mahan thinks she can do the ceremony in her sleep. Matt claims his puppet, Oliver, is a licence minister. When none of the candidates are up to the job, Danny has one idea, but it's a long shot. Derek comes tap dancing back through the kitchen singing Yankee Doodle Dandy, because he parked in back.

Everyone stands as the wedding ceremony begins. Jackson, Ramona, Max, and Tommy wait along side Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy for the brides-to-be. First Joey walks Kimmy, then Jesse walks Stephanie, and last Danny walks D.J. down the aisle. Danny kisses his daughters before sitting with Joey Jesse, and Pamela. Jesse asks Danny for his name to go on his gift. Danny's gift was paying for the wedding. Joey inquires as to if Danny found a minister. Girls are thrilled to discover Joey McIntyre will be officiating their wedding. Joey McIntyre announces he is there to marry three New Kids superfans to their grooms. The couples wrote their own vows. Kimmy and Fernando go first, followed by Stephanie and Jimmy, and last D.J. and Steve. Joey McIntyre cries over the vows, he thought Please Don't Go Girl was romantic. D.J. Stephanie, and Kimmy say "I do" as they place rings on their respective grooms fingers. Fernando, Steve, and Jimmy say "I do" as they place rings on their respective brides fingers. Joey McIntyre pronounces the couples "husbands and wives". All guests stand up, clap, and cheer the newlyweds. Lisa Loeb plays guitar and sings First Day of my Life. The newlyweds share the first dance together as guests watch. Joey gives the first toast. Jesse gives the next toast. D.J. Stephanie, and Kimmy throw their bouquets. Ramona, Lola, and CJ catch them. Danny gives his toast.

The next day: Jackson, Max, and Tommy say goodbye to Ramona in her almost empty room. Stephanie, Kimmy, Ramona, Fernando, Jimmy, and Dani are all packed and ready to leave. D.J. had been trying to avoid this moment for a long time. D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Danny, Joey, Fernando, Steve, Jimmy, and Dani have one final large group hug. Danny, Joey, Fernando, Ramona, Jimmy, and Dani are the first to walk out the door. Steve takes Jackson, Max, and Tommy so D.J. can say goodbye to Stephanie and Kimmy alone.

D.J. walks Stephanie and Kimmy to the door, closing it behind them. D.J. stands alone crying in the living room, when she hears a knock at the door. Stephanie and Kimmy return. Stephanie knows they don't have to all live together, but they want to. Stephanie and Kimmy can't imagine raising their families any other way. There's no where else Stephanie would rather be, especially with a new baby on the way. It's a miracle, Stephanie is pregnant. D.J. and Kimmy are so happy for her. When Stephanie and Kimmy ask to stay, D.J. says "of course, the door is always open". Kimmy shouts "she said we can stay". Everyone comes back in.
