Step by Step: Just Say Maybe

Carol refuses to let Al and the others go to a rock concert until it's revealed that she attended and did drugs at the infamous 60's concert, Woodstock. The concert though features Al actually entertaining the idea of doing drugs, the same one Carol did.

Meanwhile, Jean-Luc finds himself in the middle of a bizarre domestic dispute of sorts when he has to fend off the advances of Carol's married friend.

Episode Quotes
Frank: Let's see your up there listening to a band named Moral Sewage and a guy named Viper comes up and invites you to a party in his sleeping bag and nine months later I have a grandson named, Sankebite.

Karen: We'll see you guys later we're going to the movies.
JT: Yeah where we'll be able to sit pretty anywhere we want because cause every other teenager in town will be at ROCK FESTIVAL 97.
Dana: Yeah and don't you worry about us raising all kinda of heck tonight cause we'll be sure the movie is suitable for youngsters and afterwords we'll be down at the malt shop having root beers with Potsie.
Carol: Patti these are my very bitter children.
Patti: Hi, I'm Patti.
Carol: Well they're mad at me cause I won't let them go to Rock Festival 97.
Patti: Why not? You and I had a great time at Woodstock.
Al: Wait a minute. Carol went to woodstock? Then why can't we go to Rock Festival 97?
Carol: Al, Woodstock was...different.
Al: Oh really? Let's review shall we? Deviant rock bands, teenagers sleeping side by side and no adult supervision other than the Grateful Dead.
Patti: Carol I don't think you need to worry about the kids. I mean it can't be nearly as wild as Woodstock. It's not like there gonna go up there and smoke pot and dance on top of a VW van like you did.

Dana: Al, are you serious? You're thinking about trying pot?
Al: Yeah why not? The President of the United States tried it.
Dana: The President did not inhale.
Al: Yeah right.
