When Art Imitated Life, the Time Aunt Becky Got Mad About a School Scandal

This isn't Lori Loughlin's first time dealing with drama, but while on Full House back in the day, she made a very different decision. Becky was the moral compass on the show and after everything that's gone down this week, she probably should have done this.

In a 1993 episode of the popular sitcom “Full House,” revived by social media users Tuesday, Becky Katsopolis, played by Loughlin, and her husband, Jesse (John Stamos), are forced to navigate the line between wanting what’s best for their children and taking things too far as they try to get their young twin sons accepted to a prestigious preschool. When Jesse realizes his boys likely won’t get in, he blatantly lies on the school’s application, sending the couple down a path of deception until Becky, known in the show for her prudence, puts a stop to the shenanigans. She tells administrators the truth, even at the risk of jeopardizing her children’s futures.

 

“I know you want what’s best for them, but you know what?” Becky says to Jesse near the end of the episode. “Maybe the fast track isn’t it. Nicky and Alex are normal, healthy kids and whatever track they’re on, they seem to be doing okay.”

She later adds, “When they’re ready to go to preschool, we’ll find the right one and we’ll do everything we can to encourage them.”
