Watching Full House was a rite of passage for '90s kids. The corny sitcom aired for 8 seasons from 1987 until 1995 and followed single father Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) trying his best to take care of his three adorable kids after his wife passed away. Thankfully, his pal Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) and brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) moved in so they could help out.
Many people have great memories of this show, and although some episodes seem flat and a little on the silly side since so much time has passed since they originally aired, it's still a pretty funny series. Here are 10 quotes from Full House that are still hilarious today.
10 "Watch the hair!"
A discussion of Full House quotes wouldn't be complete without mentioning Uncle Jesse's obsession with his hair. John Stamos played this character perfectly and made fans understand that he cares about his hair as much as his wife, children, and other family members.
No matter how many times we watched Full House while growing up, we never got tired of Jesse saying "Watch the hair!" It's one of those classic quotes that is always funny... probably because he really is that serious about his appearance.
9 'Sorry.' 'Sorry.' 'Sorry' doesn't change the fact that my chicken tetrazzini is ruined!"
Ruined! It's all dried out. But do you have the common courtesy to call me and tell me you're going to be 25 minutes late?! NO! Well, I am not an animal. Oh, my God. What's happening to me? I'm turning into June Cleaver.
We all remember Uncle Jesse constantly referencing his perfect, beautiful hair, but he had some other great quotes as well, and this one deserves a spot on this list for sure.
Uncle Jesse says this hilarious quote in the season one episode "Joey's Place." Jesse gets more than a little bit overwhelmed with domestic responsibilities. When Danny comes into the house later than he was supposed to, Jesse gets all flustered and says this great quote. It's still funny today since everyone can relate to being tired of the endless cycle of cooking and cleaning.
8 "Am I the raddest, baddest dad a kid ever had?"
When Danny asks DJ (Candace Cameron) this question in the season five episode "Crushed," she says, "You were until you said that." This is still hilarious today since everyone secretly adores dad jokes, and Danny Tanner is truly The King Of Dad Jokes. He's the furthest thing from cool, loves cleaning the house more than anything, and can't help the sometimes lame things that he says.
Even though Danny has a tendency to crack cheesy jokes, he's truly a great dad, and his heartwarming character kept fans watching season after season.
7 "Hey, girls, I thought we were going out for ice cream."
In the season one episode "Danny's Very First Date," Danny says this since his kids are eating the dessert, and D.J. responds, "We wanted to make sure we still liked it."
This is another Full House quote that is still hilarious today. No matter what, kids are always going to want to eat as much ice cream (and other sweets) as possible. It's always charming when kids come up with an explanation for why they're doing something. Instead of simply saying that they wanted ice cream since it's delicious, D.J. tried to be more creative than that. You have to give her credit.
6 "I had a traumatic experience with squash once. I ate one."
Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) is a funny figure in the Tanner house. Since she's best pals with DJ, everyone basically has to deal with her coming over at random hours of the day... but it's safe to say that everyone else finds her to be pretty frustrating.
Even though Kimmy is an annoying character, she's also funny since she has no filter and says quirky things. This quote about squash is particularly great. Who hasn't thought that about a vegetable (maybe kale)?
5 "Well, pin a rose on your nose."
This is one of Stephanie's quotes, and even today, we can't help but think that it's truly funny. What does this statement mean? While it sounds pretty silly and ridiculous, according to Urban Dictionary it means "nobody cares." Of course, that wouldn't really have the same ring.
You don't really hear anyone say this anymore, which makes it even more special that Stephanie does. And she says it with such self-confidence, too.
4 "Don't shake your head. Your story's read. It's time for bed. To bed, I said."
In the fourth season episode "Crimes and Michelle's Demeanor," Danny says this hilarious quote. Jesse responds, "Gotta lay off that Seuss, man." The pair are upset that Michelle's (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) still wide awake.
This quote is still funny today because parents know how children's rhyming stories, TV shows, and music can stick in your head. Sometimes you might even find yourself humming a tune after they've gone to sleep, and you can't get it out of your head.
3 "Aw, nuts!"
The characters on Full House have many things that they say in many episodes, and these catchphrases are beloved by fans. There is really nothing more nostalgia-inducing than hearing Michelle say "Aw, nuts!"
Michelle has a great, confident personality and while D.J. and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) are often upset about the challenges of growing up and dealing with everything from mean girls to dating to insecurities, Michelle is often the comic relief of the scene. She has a real knack for saying a funny line of dialogue at the perfect time.
2 "Have mercy!"
This classic and famous quote by Uncle Jesse is definitely still hilarious today. It's pretty silly that someone would actually say it out loud, but that's the cheesy charm of this character (and of Full House in general).
There are tons of gifs of Jesse saying "Have mercy!" out there, and we love them all.
1 "How rude!"
The final quote from Full House that is still just as funny today is when Stephanie often exclaims "How rude!" She feels this so strongly and says this phrase without a hint of insecurity or doubt, and that's awesome.
Stephanie's the classic middle child who always thinks that she's being wronged or not getting what she wants, but while sometimes she can be whiney and a bit annoying, she's always cute and hilarious. This is definitely her best quote from the popular sitcom.
