The ‘Family Matters’ When Steve Urkel Got Drunk And Fell Off A Roof

The ‘Family Matters’ When Steve Urkel Got Drunk And Fell Off A Roof


(gentle music) – Laura’s helping Maxine plan
her rooftop birthday party. They decide to graciously
invite that one guy with only four teeth. Aunt Rachel offers to cater, even though Maxine can only afford to have her serve potato
chips and watered down punch. The rooftop party looks fun. They’ve got balloons and shit. Aunt Rachel is having a blast. When Laura and Maxine spot Willie and Waldo crashing the soiree, they ask the guys if they wanna dance. But Willie holds the dudes back because they’re doing something right now. What are they doing? Trying to decide what
to spike the punch with. Waldo says he got them because
his dad is a stewardess, which was a strong punchline in 1991 that’s problematic now
for a variety of reasons. Laura foolishly tells them
drinking is for losers, not realizing how awesome tiny bottles of airplane liquor can be. She’s ready to kick them
out when Willie threatens to take the guys with him. Unwilling to part with
this extremely replaceable corner of horny high school bros, Maxine tells Laura to back off. Laura proudly declares, she does not need to
drink to have a good time. Then proceeds to have a very bad time, standing there, making a face like she can smell
everyone’s potato chip farts even though they’re standing
outdoors on a windy roof. Steve Urkel arrives, impressed
by the A lists guests, including that guy with four teeth. Willie teases Steve, who
uses his superior intellect to tease right back. Willie warns Steve not to mess with him. Steve encourages the fellows
to come dance with these babes, but Willie says they’d
rather stand in the corner and drink rum like morons. Steve takes matters into his own hands. He asked that guy with four
teeth to put on his song, “Do the Urkel” and after teaching
everyone three dance moves, the entire roof instantly
knows an intricate and coordinated routine to this song about doing an Urkel dance that exists in the Family Matters universe for reasons that will never be explained. (’90s pop music) Willie’s pissed that Steve
has his own song and dance, and decides to get back at him with a secretly spiked cup of punch. Steve gets absolutely
sauced right away, toe up, and Laura realizes something’s up because Steve is never this cool. Waldo reveals they spiked Steve’s punch. Saucy Steve heads over to the ledge to do the Urkel once again. Only this time he’s not
quite as successful, and his drunk ass falls
off the god damn roof. Miraculously, Steve catches the corner of a ledge and doesn’t die. Aunt Rachel springs into action, and climbs down a ladder
to save this wasted nerd. Aunt Rachel tight rope
walks to Steve’s rescue, even though she admits to never having tight rope walked before. Apparently this roof is magic, and it helps people learn
complicated stuff super fast. Rachel saves Steve, who,
if he knew had to be Urkel for another severe seasons,
would have probably preferred to plunge to his death. The cops arrive. And even though Willie and Waldo are in the process of getting arrested, because they accidentally
snitched on themselves, Laura decides to scream
at them about how not cool and dangerous their behavior was. And the next day, Steve is so hung over that Carl makes him his
signature hangover cure, and it works, then
instantly makes Steve shit. He just runs out the room
yelling about how bad he has to take a dump. So what did we learn today? A trench coat full of tiny liquor bottles might seem like a good
time, because it is, but don’t get someone drunk
without their consent, especially on a roof, when all they’ve had for
dinner is potato chips, because they could really
endanger themselves, and make a 33 year old
woman tight rope walk for the first time, and you
don’t need alcohol to have fun or teach all your friends
a dance routine to a song that features your name. But if you mope around a party and judge people for drinking, then kick them when they’re already down, you’re being a real dick and you should check that shit, Laura. And be careful, even
with non-alcoholic drinks because they might make your butt explode. See you next time on A
Very Special Episode. (gentle musical tones)
