Trivia Edit

  • In the original ABC broadcast, the ending gag is crossed over with Step by Step; Urkel's jet-propelled flight pack causes him to fly through the Winslows' roof and crash-land in Port Washington, Wisconsin, where the Foster/Lambert family is enjoying a barbecue. An alternate ending is included in syndicated, ABC Family and Nick at Nite reruns, featuring Steve's out-of-control jet pack flinging him above the Chicago skyline.

Quotes Edit

Waldo: Thanks for helping me find the gym.
Urkel: Don't feel bad. It's Monday! You had two whole days to forget where it was.

Urkel: You know what, Laura? I realize the reason you don't love me is because I'm weak.
Laura: Steve, that's not true.
Urkel: It isn't?
Laura: No! There's lots of reasons why I don't love you.
Urkel: Really? Well, name a couple.
Laura: Well... you're stubborn, irritating, loud, obnoxious, pushy, clumsy...
Urkel: I said 'a couple'.
