* When Joey's new girlfriend senses that Joey isn't happy with the way Jesse always takes the lead and makes decisions in their friendship and partnership, she encourages him to stand up for himself. This results in a huge fight between the two, in which Jesse outright refers to the woman as "Yoko". While the story of YokoOhNo is well known, remember that Jesse is also a rabid music fan. It makes perfect sense that he'd draw such a comparison.

** Then there is the scene in 3x08 where Jesse tells the Stephanie and DJ that the 5 year age difference between them seems big at the moment, it won´t matter when they are older. Given the fact that Jesse was about 5 years younger than Pam, then it sounds like he is basing it on his own experience.

Given the fact that Jesse was about 5 years younger than Pam, then it sounds like he is basing it on his own experience. Thinking about it from ankle highlights how much Pam meant to him, and how much he lost when she died. Having these conversations with his deceased sister´s daughters about relationships between siblings and how great it is to have a sister, must be painful for him.

* In 1x13 DJ tells Jesse and Joey that she is so sick of sisters. Jesse tells her that one of the benefits of being a big sister is having two younger sisters that love her, need her and look up to her. Coming from someone that lost his own big sister, this takes on a deeper and sadder meaning.

* Granted, Michelle (especially in the later seasons) is usually annoying and bratty, but there was at least one scenario where she was potentially LethallyStupid. In a later episode, she decides to take up a hobby. Fair enough, but the hobby in question was collecting leaves, and if that wasn't irritating enough, the leaves left on Stephanie's bed were the ones with ''little bugs on them''. Did Michelle essentially expose her sister, herself and everyone else in that enabling, dim family to Lyme Disease?!

!!!FridgeLogic
* Jesse is Greek, thus his sister, the girl's mother Pam, would have been too, yet in a home movie Pam is shown to be blonde. It's odder still that the girls would then be half-Greek and their dad has dark brown hair, yet they all have light hair.
** One episode had the family's Greek relatives visiting and all of them were brunettes, which only adds to the confusion.
** Clearly Pam has dyed hair and Joey is the girl's real father.
** Originally, the Katsopolis family was Italian. Don't know if that helps.
*** Jesse's mother is of Italian descent. Blond hair is not uncommon in Italy, especially in the North.
** In 7.10 "The Prying Game" Danny mentions that Jesse is half-Greek, making the girls and the twins only one-quarter Greek. Still doesn't explain Pam's blonde hair or how all 5 children in the house inherited blonde hair too.
*** Don't forget the twins having blonde hair. Me thinks Becky had an affair with Joey.
** Some Greeks have blond hair-- Cleopatra, for instance was a Ptolomey (Greek dynasty in Egypt) and some believe she was blond and green-eyed. Not to mention, a lot of different genes contribute to hair color, so it could be recessive or something.
** I have a cousin who is half Greek and his daughter has sandy blonde hair.
** What about Danny's and Becky's families? Becky's mother Nedra, Danny's sister Wendy, and his mother Claire are blondes. Maybe the girls and the twins inherited their hair color from the non-greek parts of their families.
* Jesse loves classic rock, especially Elvis. In one episode Danny wanted to sing "My Generation" by Music/TheWho with the band for a school function. Jesse said the song wasn't hip enough. Why would he object to that when he sings Elvis and other hits from the 1950s and 60s?
** He's an elitist douche who considers himself the final arbiter of cool, that's why. He only says it's not hip enough because Danny, king of the lame, suggested it.
** He didn't object to the song in general, he said that it wasn't ''hip'', i.e. currently popular, a song junior high students would know. At the beginning of the scene he and his band grumble about playing a junior high function, so they probably weren't planning on playing Jesse's usual repertoire that night.
* Twice Jesse's band is unavailable, and he's left with undesirable alternatives, The Tanners in one instance, a marching band in another. Why didn't he think of doing an acoustic set? Especially since he owns an acoustic guitar and clearly that'd be better than having a freaking marching band.
** Both were spur of the moment. Jesse probably wanted a band to live up to his word.
* In season six it's revealed Uncle Jesse dropped out of high school with once class to go. How could no one in the family know about it? Danny and Pam would've been married at the time, and DJ would've been a preschooler. It also contradicts an earlier episode where he mentions he went to graduation. Did he attend his ceremony and drop out during summer school?
* When Danny is stuck between going to Stephanie's Science Fair thing and DJ's play, why didn't he just go to DJ's first and Stephanie's second? That way, he'd be able to see DJ play her role ''and'' see if Stephanie wins.
* For their wedding song, Jesse wants an Elvis song and Becky wants a romantic ballad. They compromise with a slowed down version of Jailhouse Rock. Why didn't they just use an Elvis ballad? I Can't Help Falling in Love is apparently a popular wedding song.

* I always wondered how they could afford their lifestyle pretty much on Danny's salary alone (at least in the first season, before Joey and Jesse started their advertising job), in one of the most expensive cities in the U.S. Danny's wife was killed in a car accident...which means they probably got a huge insurance payout.
