Jesse calls to say that he and Samantha have gone to Lake Tahoe, where they have been skiing with friends. When Danny tells D.J. and Stephanie that Jesse has left and may move out, D.J. explains to Danny that when Pam died, D.J. thought that she would never again feel comfortable living in this house, until Jesse and Joey moved in and things got better. That's why D.J. and Stephanie don't want Jesse to move, so D.J. and Stephanie form a plan to make sure that doesn't happen -- they call Jesse and tell Jesse that Michelle is sick, when D.J. and Stephanie know that Michelle is not sick. From Lake Tahoe, Jesse drives his motorcycle behind a cattle truck for 4 hours in the freezing cold and arrives home only to discover that Michelle is really not sick, and that D.J. and Stephanie tricked him into coming home. Danny and Joey talk Jesse into not moving out, and they agree that Jesse needs more privacy than he's been getting.
