Does anyone else remember?

I've been thinking all morning about the royal blue sweater Danny buys D.J. for Valentine's Day in the Little Shop of Sweaters episode of Full House (Season 2, Episode 14). I can find all kinds of summaries of that episode, but no images or video clips.

It all started when I was lying awake after receiving a wrong number call. I was thinking about different things I'd like to buy in NYC, then about Stephanie Tanner seeing the sign at the mall that claimed "Buy Now, Pay Later," which inspired her to take a replacement sweater for D.J. after hers is shredded by the lawnmower at school.

The episode is relavent for so many reasons--shredded sweater reminiscent of Alexander Wang SS09? Royal blue seen on so many at recent award shows? Valentine's Day? People misunderstanding credit? Ok, the last one is a stretch, but you see what I mean.

In case you were wondering, I'm pretty sure the sweater in the episode was $80, and if I buy now pay later, I will be using a credit card and not shoplifting!
