Laura's First Date is the twelfth episode of Season One and the overall twelfth episode. It was aired on December 15, 1989. It was written by William Bickley and Michael Warren and directed by Richard Correll.
Laura is dateless for the upcoming school dance, so well-meaning Carl and Eddie (without consulting each other) set Laura up with three different dates. Carl's pick for Laura's date is a decision that would change their lives and one he would forever live to regret: Steven Q. Urkel.
- This episode marked the first appearance of Steve Urkel during first-run broadcasts.
- This is also the one of only two episodes in which Steve calls Carl "Mr. Winslow". Throughout the rest of the series, he either calls him "Carl" or "Big Guy".
