Added DiffLines:

* GarageSale: The set-up in the plot of the series' last pre-Urkel episode, "The Quilt." An heirloom quilt gets mixed in with other merchandise at the sale, and when a museum curator offers Laura top dollar (several hundred dollars) for the quilt -- uncaring of what it means to the family -- Laura wilts under pressure and makes the sale. It is only after Estelle (the grandmother) does little to hide her disappointment that Laura realizes she made a huge mistake and has to get the quilt back any way she can. Only thing is, negotiating with this stubborn, uncaring curator well-experienced in her field is a difficult if not impossible proposition ... but somehow, Laura succeeds.

** This more or less became the shows setup when Steve was introduced. Unlike most versions of this, he and Laura do eventually end up together in the final season of the show.

* JustEatGilligan: Any one of the Winslow family could have taken out a HollywoodRestrainingOrder or pressed several charges against Steve for multiple counts of stalking, harassment and property damage ''at minimum.'' This is also made more egregious considering that Carl [[ForgotAboutHisPowers is a cop.]]
