Remember that one episode that dealt with Jesse being a drop out and how important education is to succeed. Even though at the time he had a number one hit in Japan, owns a club, formed a new band and has a great paying job and he has a hot wife and two beautiful twins.

And lets not forget that Disney episode in which Michelle was a real major pain.
