Full House star Dave Coulier shares a funny memory of Bob Saget. After the ending of the reboot series Fuller House, the cast does occasionally reunite at conventions and other events. These serve as an opportunity for the actors to swap stories and reminisce about their time on set in front of a crowd. And, with the sudden passing of Saget in January 2022, it’s also a chance for the group to pay tribute to their beloved co-star.
During an appearance at the recent ’90’s Con, for a panel that featured Coulier, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Candace Cameron Bure, the actors talked about Full House catchphrases and any instances where they might’ve used it in real life. This prompted Coulier, who played Joey, to share a hilarious recollection of how Saget perfectly spotted the chance to say ‘Cut It Out.’ Coulier’s quote, via CinemaBlend, is below:
I’ll tell you a funny story that Bob did one time. We used to have a gum wall, we used to call it, on the show. If we were chewing gum right before the scene, we’d take our gum out and we’d put it up on the wall. So everybody did that; it became normal, right? So Bob’s chewing gum one time, and we’re ready to go into a scene, and he took his gum and he acted like he was gonna throw it into my hair, and it really went into my hair. And he thought that was the funniest thing. I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ And he goes, ‘I guess we’re gonna have to Cut It Out.’
How The Full House Cast Has Honored Bob Saget
Following his passing, a tribute special was filmed at The Comedy Store by Saget’s friend Mike Binder. The project was titled Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute, including featuring footage from a private memorial. It was released on Netflix in June 2022, and featured appearances by Coulier, Bure, and Full House actor John Stamos, in addition to the many familiar names that Saget knew and came across, such as Jim Carrey and Michael Keaton. In one of the special’s most emotional moments, Coulier talks about his love for Saget.
The cast has found ways to honor Saget in their other projects, too. Stamos spoke candidly of how one story in his Disney+ show Big Shot was influenced by Saget. Stamos explained how, through the use of one character, he wanted to explore the legacy and the importance of letting people know the positive impact they’ve had and that they’re loved while they’re still alive. Stamos felt that his Full House co-star didn’t necessarily know how highly people thought of him and that it was a tragedy.
Coulier has said that he wants another Full House spinoff dedicated to Saget’s legacy. Whether that happens, it’s obvious that the actors are committed to keeping the memory of their frequent co-star alive and highlighting not only the ways in which he touched their lives and careers but how, in his own unforgettable ways, Saget had just the right comedic timing.
