Step by Step: Pretty Woman

Karen's big modeling break could come if she can just get noticed by a big New York photographer. Problem is the guy isn't looking for just pretty (it's been done) but someone "with attitude" and to everyone's surprise he finds her. But it's not's Al!

Meanwhile, Cody is convinced that he's a born winner and is reluctant to test his theory when Frank invites him to sit in on a poker game with some of his friends.

Episode Quotes
(Cody gives a karate demo)
Cody: (after head butting the wood for a second time) Good news, I think I heard something crack.

Cody: Hey Uncle Frank, you're not gonna believe this. You know what I just found out? Little Michelle on Full House is actually two people.

Cody: Now wait, hold on, you know I am not a gambling man.
Virgil: Why is that Cody? Afraid of losing?
Cody: Well no, I'm what you call a born winner, a lucky stiff, I got the midol touch.

Al: Look this audition better not take long.
Carol: Listen Al, this will just take a few minutes and then we can go down to the sporting goods store and get you you're hockey bat.
Al: Carol, it's not a bat it's a stick.

Al: Yo, Maestro, what is the hold up here? Pick a priss bag amd move on? (Carol covers her mouth)
Carol: She didn't mean to interrupt.
Tim Yates: No, it's OK, it makes me feel like I'm back in New York. Come here honey.
Al: Who you calling honey?
Al: Love the attitude. I'm seeing edge here.
Tim Yates: What's your name?
Al: Al.
Tim Yates: How would you like to be a model?
Al: (snickers) No way!
Tim Yates: Pays two hundred bucks an hour.
Al: Hey, I'm your man.
(Karen screams in horror)

Tim Yates: OK, let's see why people call me a genius.

Karen: Al, why are you always insulting me?
Al: Well, we drew straws: J.T. got Dana, I got you.

Carol: Al, where are you going?
Al: Oh, I thought I'd just go for a little walk.
Carol: Where?
Al: Home.

Guy: Hey, Al!
Al: Oh, shut up! I'm in the middle of an argument!

Episode Goofs
The photographer in this episode clearly states his name as Tim Yates (Karen also notes this) but in the closing credits, Christopher Darga's character is listed simply as "Photographer".

Cultural References
