Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber: "Fuller House" | Talks at Google

Difficulty: 0

KEVIN DUNCAN: Hello everyone.

Welcome to Talks at Google.

I'm Kevin Duncan.

Today we welcome the cast of "Fuller House."

So who we have is Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin,

and Andrew Barber.



KEVIN DUNCAN: We've got the awesome '90s plaid couch here

for you guys.

JODIE SWEETIN: Oh, fantastic.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Look at that.

JODIE SWEETIN: We only sit on '90s couches.

KEVIN DUNCAN: That's what we heard.

We had it shipped in from LA-- San Francisco, excuse me.

So welcome guys.

Welcome to Google.




KEVIN DUNCAN: So you guys are back after 21 years

since you guys went off the air, and so the show

takes place 29 years.

That said, I love kind of the intro how they went right

into it that.

So can you just tell us what you three

are up to after 29 years later.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Well, DJ sadly is widowed,

and-- but she has three kids and she's a veterinarian.

And is that we're talking about?

The characters right?

It's been a long day.

I've got to pee.

I've been up since 4:00.


JODIE SWEETIN: What have you been doing like 29 years there?


JODIE SWEETIN: I'm on "The View."

Wow, that's really strange.

Do you need me--

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I'm setting a great tone

for this interview.

So sorry.

JODIE SWEETIN: I'll be her interpreter today and I will--




DJ, that's where she is.

She's a single mom raising three kids and a working mom,

gets overwhelmed so she invites her best friend and her sister,

or kind of.

She doesn't invite.

JODIE SWEETIN: Well yeah, Stephanie, the whole family

is back because Danny is talking about selling the house, which

is why the original house is in the show.

Everyone gets to see that, which I

think is as much of a character as anybody else.

And they're all there and Steph, she really

sees her sister struggling, and overwhelmed,

and needing some help.

And so she kind of gives up everything and says,

I'm going to move in with you.

And then Kimmy decides to move in as well and--

KEVIN DUNCAN: I was going to say she invited herself.

I saw--

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, she--


JODIE SWEETIN: --in typical Gibbler style

she invites herself.


JODIE SWEETIN: And the frenemy of relationship continues.


KEVIN DUNCAN: I got to see the first few episodes,

and the first episode was-- really it just

seemed like a mirror image of the first one with you

three guys in the lead, or three girls in the lead.

And so can you talk about the idea

of-- because it's pretty much a reunion,

but also taking kind of hey, this is where we were,

and then this is where we're going.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Yeah, the pilot episode really

is an ode to all the fans.

It's saying here we are.

We're back together, and we're giving you everything

we think you're hoping for.

And it's setting up the premise for what the new show is about,

which is really about us three women raising these four kids.

So if you haven't heard already, the original cast

is together for the first episode.

And then the other characters, Danny, Jessie, Joey, and Becky,

they pop in and out for some episodes throughout the series.

But they're not in every one, because it's revolving

around this new family.

But that--

JODIE SWEETIN: I think we realized

that we needed to do that reunion moment,

that people were really excited for that,

but that "Fuller House" is a show that

is about much more than that.

But we had to get it out of the way

so that everyone wouldn't be like, what happened?

We wanted to see everybody together.

So we did that.

We gave that to everybody and then continued on

with the new series.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Well, it was great because the first episode

happened and I was like, oh this is very familiar

and it's great to see all you guys.

And then it was literally the second episode you guys,

it was really different, actually,

because it actually went in different directions.

And Andrea I love-- we all love Kimmy.

We all love Kimmy.




ANDREA BARBER: I love Kimmy.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And I love the fact

that-- it was so fun because I just remember Kimmy always

being there, but I actually watching back

in the first few seasons prepping

for this, Kimmy's character was just kind of this side

character and popped in and out, and then

got more and more in the later episodes.

So to have you now as a leading-- one

of the leading ladies in this.

This is fantastic.

ANDREA BARBER: It's thrilling.

It's overwhelming.

And Kimmy is so excited to finally move inside the house.

It was her childhood home, too, even though nobody really

wanted her there.

But she's finally home and it's exciting,

and it's so cool to be here with these women.

We're just having such a blast together.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: It was hysterical

because-- I mean we've been acting since the show.

Andrea retired from acting right after the show.

And then we get on the set and we're like,

oh, we get to revive these characters.

And you kind of wonder, how's it going to be.

And Andrea literally, she gets on the set

and she gets a script in her hand,

and she just like morphs into Kimmy Gibbler,

like without missing a beat.

It was, it's-- I love it.

JODIE SWEETIN: It was hysterical, yeah.


ANDREA BARBER: Kimmy Gibbler has been hibernating inside

of me for the last 20 years, and I finally

get to unleash her to the world.

It's great.

JODIE SWEETIN: I mean she's hysterical.

It's every time Kimmy is on screen I just-- I die laughing.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Well, your backstory is very interesting,

because you have an estranged husband who

pops into the episodes here and there.

But were there any other ideas in terms

of what her backstory was going to be

and what she was going to be doing?

Because you're an entrepreneur, you're

an event planner in the--

ANDREA BARBER: Yeah, Kimmy is now a party planner.

s she takes her parties very seriously.

But yeah, Jeff Franklin, our creator and executive producer,

he and I talked a lot about what--

who is modern Kimmy Gibbler now?

And one of the ideas we threw around

was maybe she should be an interpreter for the United

Nations, and so she comes in speaking all these languages.

And everyone's like, where did that come from.

But we finally settled on-- you know,

you've got to stay true to the original eccentric characters.

So she's a party planner.

She's still zany.

She's still living in the '90s, but she's a modern woman.

She's a single mom and she's helping out DJ,

but DJ and Stephanie are helping out her, too.

JODIE SWEETIN: She plans great parties, though.

There's several parties in the first season of "Fuller House"

and they're all Gibbler-style parties.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And you're also a DJ?


I am DJ Tanner.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: She stole my name.

Who does that?

KEVIN DUNCAN: It's awesome.

I love that.



JODIE SWEETIN: It's kind of awesome.

KEVIN DUNCAN: So that's your career now?

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, Steph has been a DJ.

She's been traveling the world.

She's been living sort of an unattached-- not irresponsible,

but not really a tied down lifestyle.

And she comes home.

And she was in London.

Didn't think she was going to make it,

and she comes home and decides that she really needs

to be there for her sister.

But Steph's character has been having--


ANDREA BARBER: That was Dave Coulier farting off--

Don't mind that.

JODIE SWEETIN: What happened?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: You guys have no idea.

Who is that? [INAUDIBLE].

JODIE SWEETIN: What's going on?

Is someone--

CANDACE CAMERON BURE: It's starting to turn into a beat.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: DJ Tanner, drop the beat.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Come on, drop the beat.



KEVIN DUNCAN: It's Candace.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Should I turn this off then?

KEVIN DUNCAN: There we go.

JODIE SWEETIN: There you go, just yank it off.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: All righty, we'll

put it right here.

KEVIN DUNCAN: I'll take that.

There we go.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I'll hide it behind the pillow.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Google, technology.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, you guys really

should work on that aspect of your--


KEVIN DUNCAN: And so you were saying.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: What was I saying?

KEVIN DUNCAN: I'm not sure anymore.

JODIE SWEETIN: I was saying.

You interrupted.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Sorry, whack-a-mole.


JODIE SWEETIN: Oh, it's been a long day.

No, Stephanie, yeah, she's been having a lot of fun.

And so she comes back and really steps

into a position of helping her sister out.

And it's great because Stephanie gets to kind of transform

in those first few episodes to this person who doesn't really

want to be grounded anywhere to showing back up for her sister.

And then Steph and Kimmy have this amazing frenemy

relationship, where they sort of battle but love each other

and really-- and Stephanie knows that Kimmy

has been there for her sister.

And that means a lot to her.

KEVIN DUNCAN: For sure, and I love how it really

tackles more adult themes.

Because it was interesting watching that,

too, while obviously you guys were kids

and you had no storylines.

But was it interesting and fun, and what

was the process of coming up with adult storylines?

Were you guys influencing that with your real life,

or what was that process?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Well, all three of us

are moms in real life.

And so we did meet with all of the writers

and we're talking about our parenting styles

and giving them stories out of our real life

that have happened.

So I know they've plucked things from that to also form them

into our characters.

That's a fun aspect of the show is that the three of us,

as our characters, parent very differently.

And so we fill in the gaps.

Where there's a weakness, there's

a strength from another.

But as far as being the adults on the show and all

those storylines, I mean I think we're

just happy we don't have to go to school on our breaks

like when we were kids.

I mean it's fun to drive the show this time

as the women and not the kids.

But we love working with the new kids on the show

and it gives them this-- we have the most unique perspective

in that sense, that we can give to them everything that we've

already gone through.

And at the same time, not only teach them,

but we can also say, hey, stop complaining because we've

already done this too.

We understand and we get it.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And so you guys are on Netflix now,

which is phenomenal.

And Stamos seemed to be the guy who was pushing for this a lot

and always bringing it back up.

And he's a producer I think on the series as well.

So has it been-- it's great to see it on Netflix

and has it been also different in that you don't

have to really be in the network guidelines

and you don't have to adhere to 22 minutes and stuff.

And has that changed too much or--

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, I mean, I think

it's this is sort of uncharted territory for us as far as

how to do a sitcom within a much looser framework, which

is a real benefit to being on Netflix.

We can make the shows a little bit longer.

So if it's 26 minutes, it's like, all right that's fine.

We don't have to panic and cut a bunch of stuff

that we think is really good.

We're not beholden to finding out

what our ratings are every week and panicking

if something goes up or down.

And it gives us a lot of freedom to really

be able to do a show that the fans love and the fans want.

And I think that that was why this has been so immensely

popular and why it had such a success

at coming back in the first place is that the fans love it.

ANDREA BARBER: It's a great partnership with Netflix,

too, because of the way "Full House" fans

watch "Full House." "Full House" has never been off the air

in 30 years.

And it's on 4, 5, 6, 7 times every night at Nick at Night,

so people have already been binge watching

"Full House" for a long time.

And so when it's released tomorrow

at 12:01 AM on Netflix, you can just have an all-nighter.

You can watch every episode you want, just all in a row.

Or you can space them out if you want to savor each episode.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And you guys have so many characters

that come back.

Steve is back for the first episode, and obviously

Bob Saget and everyone.

And so was there a character from the old show that you

wanted to bring back and you couldn't?

JODIE SWEETIN: I want to bring back Gia, who was--

KEVIN DUNCAN: That was actually a social media question.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, I want to bring her back.

And there's been discussions about it,

so we'll see what happens.



CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Wasn't she a really bad influence on you?

Why do you want to bring her back, Stephanie?

Making more bad decisions.

JODIE SWEETIN: You haven't been a part of my life, DJ.

You don't know what's going on.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Only because you stayed away.

JODIE SWEETIN: [SIGHS] We've had this talk before.

We're not doing it here.

We're not doing it here, DJ.

CANDACE CAMERON BURE: Are we taking this too far?

KEVIN DUNCAN: You're being very rude.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I think do we collectively want--

BOTH: Kathy Santoni.

ANDREA BARBER: I want to know if she's still throwing pool

parties with her big boobs.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: She's like the girl when you go back

to your high school reunion and you

want to see if she's still all that that she

was in high school, or you can be like ha ha.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And I read you guys actually brought your kids

back on set and stuff.

So what was their experience like seeing their parents back

at it?

JODIE SWEETIN: My kids had a blast.

They thought it was really fun.

The first couple tapings they were super into it,

and then they just wanted to go hang out in my trailer.

But they, I mean they loved it.

They loved seeing my "Full House" family

and watching mommy work and have fun.

And you know my youngest daughter Beatrix, she's five.

And that's how old I was when I started doing the show, which

is just mind-blowing to me that all this time later I

have my own kids and they get to be there witnessing

me doing what I love.


What's great about the show as well, because I mean it does

take off in the second episode and start becoming different.

But you guys still keep the same format.

It's the same multi-camera and everything.

I mean was there any discussion once you went there,

because everything seems to be in documentary style

this day and age.

Was there any kind of pressure or felt like, oh

maybe we should go to this or do we really want

to keep it as multi-camera?


it to be in the original sitcom for camera style.

Did you hear anything before that?

JODIE SWEETIN: No, I don't so.

I know there had been some discussion of it

back and forth as to what they wanted to do,

but I know that Netflix really strongly wanted

to bring this genre back and reintroduce it

sort of to audiences, and really make

it popular with their family viewing

with their multi-camera.


think it's important that we're not trying

to break into something new.

This is a show that people have loved for 30 years.

And so if the format was changed too dramatically,

people would say this isn't what I remember.

This isn't even what I'm wanting.

So it is for that fan that I think

a lot of the people that are wanting

to watch the show again, whether they were kids or the same ages

as us have grown up.

They're now maybe they're parents, maybe you have kids,

and they don't make shows in that format anymore.

And it's like you want to go, I want

to have the same experience with my child

that I had with my parents growing up.

And that's why I think it works in its original format.


And was there any-- what was the toughest

part or the scariest part just about getting

this back together and putting this on the air online?

ANDREA BARBER: We wanted to do the legacy proud,

and we didn't want to do a cheesy reunion movie.

There have been some of those done in the past.

And we didn't want people to make fun of this reunion.

So yeah, we wanted to do it right.

We wanted the right people involved,

so getting Jeff Franklin, our original creator,

and Bob Boyett, our original executive producer involved,

was critical.

And once they were on board I felt a lot more confident

that this was a show that was going to be done right.

It's not just a cheesy movie, it's not a reboot,

it's not "Full House 2.0."

It really is a continuation of a story that started 30 years ago

when we were little kids.

KEVIN DUNCAN: That's great.


KEVIN DUNCAN: We're going to start

taking audience questions in a few minutes,

if you guys want to start lining up.

We do have some questions from social media,

though, that we want to get to.

Some of this is from Twitter.

Some of this is G+.

Some of this is from our audience here.

Favorite direct reference to the old show that we can look for.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, there's a lot.

I mean the old catchphrases are back.

I think that fans will be pleasantly

surprised at the amount of Easter eggs hidden

throughout the show of reverence to the original series.

KEVIN DUNCAN: You brought back the blue couch I saw.

JODIE SWEETIN: The original blue couch.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: It really is the original.

It's been in storage, no joke, and the two blue chairs.

JODIE SWEETIN: The two blue chairs.


that Andrew was allergic to it and was coughing every time

she'd be in the living room.

ANDREA BARBER: I only figured out after the first week.

I thought how come every time I have a scene in the living room

I have an asthma attack.

I can't say my lines like this.

And Jodie's actually the one that figured it out.

She said, you're allergic to the couch.

And I walked over there and sat down,

and I felt this little puff of dust.

You know maybe it was just in my mind.

But yeah, I was allergic, so I had

to go out and get it cleaned organically and everything.

No problems after that first week.

KEVIN DUNCAN: But the whole set was rebuilt, right?


From scratch and from photos because they

lost the original blueprints of the set.

Yeah, it was quite the task.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, like two weeks

before we got picked up officially they destroyed

the blueprints thinking like, we're

never going to need these.

And then like it was within a few weeks they went and like,

oh you know what we need, and they went and they were like,

oh we just destroyed those.

So they had to go back and watch hundreds of hours of footage.

KEVIN DUNCAN: You didn't, just them.

JODIE SWEETIN: No, no, I was actually

not out there hammering the set together by myself.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Andrea, where can we get your bacon and eggs

scarf and donut purse?

ANDREA BARBER: And I got that question a lot.

The show hasn't even been released yet

and I'm already getting questions about Kimmy Gibbler

accessories, so there might be a Kimmy Gibbler gift

shop at some point.

I don't even know.

Our wardrobe stylist is so fantastic

and I don't know how she found all of these things.

But I hear from fans that the bacon and egg scarf

is available on Etsy somewhere.

And the donut purse is actually a Betsey Johnson purse.

And when "Fuller House" posted some

of those episodic still photos of me wearing the donut purse,

Betsey Johnson herself actually chimed in and was

like, hey that's my purse.

Thanks, Kimmy, for wearing it.

Yeah, it was pretty cool.

KEVIN DUNCAN: And DJ, this was-- at first thing people

were shocked when they heard that you were going

to be a widow, because everyone just

assumed you were with Steve, but Steve is actually

alive and well.

So why didn't you marry Steve?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Well, aren't you happy

I didn't marry Steve?

Because that would stink.

You'd never see him again.

Or he'd be dead!

KEVIN DUNCAN: Bad question.



it gives everyone hope that I did marry him,

because now he is back.

And yeah, we wanted that.

I don't know.

Well, I do know why-- no, maybe I don't

know why it didn't work out.

JODIE SWEETIN: I don't know what you're--

ANDREA BARBER: You broke up with him.

JODIE SWEETIN: Oh, why did you do that?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Why did I break up with him.

JODIE SWEETIN: He got married first.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Well, he did get married first,

but I broke up with him on the mountains.

DJ just wasn't ready for that relationship in high school.

ANDREA BARBER: And he was moving off to college

and you guys were going in separate directions.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: They know much more about DJ's life

than I do, apparently.

KEVIN DUNCAN: So we'll take our first audience question.

AUDIENCE: Hi, my name's Lisa, and I just

want to say you all look so amazingly fit.


ANDREA BARBER: We like you, Lisa.

Thank you.

AUDIENCE: And I am so impressed, and I'm enthusiast.

So I was wondering--

JODIE SWEETIN: Black pants, they're really slimming.

It's fantastic.

AUDIENCE: I mean you guys must exercise.

And I just wonder what do you do and how do you

fit it into your clearly very busy lives?

ANDREA BARBER: You're the fitness guru so--

JODIE SWEETIN: You've run marathons.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I know and she's a marathon runner.

Tell them how many marathons and halves you've run.

ANDREA BARBER: OK, I just finished

my fourth full marathon, LA Marathon like 11 days ago,

so my feet barely recovered in time

to put on these heels, and 25 half marathons.


And then I roped her into a few races, the Spartan

or the Tough Mudder mud runs.

ANDREA BARBER: Camp Pendleton Mud Run.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Yeah, I like strength stuff.

I workout about five days a week,

and I travel every single week.

I commute LA to New York, because I'm

co-hosting "The View" here in New York,

but my family is in LA.

So it's a struggle, but I go after work.

We're actually going to workout at 7 o'clock

tonight, because I just feel better if I do it.

JODIE SWEETIN: I'm the lazy one of the group.

I only work out like three or four days a week apparently.

And I love bacon so yeah.

AUDIENCE: Hey, so first of all, thank you for coming.

This is a childhood dream fulfilled.

Jodie, this question is for you and it's

going to be a weird one.


AUDIENCE: My favorite GIF that I've

been using for since GIFs were invented is how rude.

Can we get a reenactment of how rude?



And that's totally not a weird question,

and that is one that I get all the time,

which is a huge compliment.

And the fact that, yeah it was like the number seven

GIF of 2015.

I was like score.

I think I've even beat out Kanye, which yeah,

but I think it was like misspelled Kanye.

But still I'll take it.

I'll take it.

AUDIENCE: Thank you.

AUDIENCE: Hi guys, also huge dream come true.

But I wanted to know, so having known

Danny Tanner as my childhood life,

and then sort of getting to know Bob Saget the comedian, very

different people.

I wanted to know as kids on the set,

like which guy did you guys know.

ANDREA BARBER: All of the above.

AUDIENCE: But you were really young.

Like how did that-- I guess as you

got older did it more come out?

ANDREA BARBER: Yeah, Bob reined it in.

The guys reined-- they knew there

were little kids on the set, and our moms

were on the set with us every day.

By law they were required to be there.

So the moms every once and a while would make their rounds

and be like, OK boys, let's watch the language.

The guys did rein it in.

JODIE SWEETIN: I actually went to the Laugh Factory

with Bob when I was about nine years old

and watched him do a set.

I'm not kidding.

Not intentionally, I was, I would

spend-- he had three daughters that I was very close with,

and as I was spending the weekend at his house

and he's like, OK wait.

Hold on, we've got to-- I'm doing a set.

I'm like, all right cool.

He's like your mom is probably going to kill me, but whatever.

And I was like it's fine, we're good.

You know I'm 9 or whatever, 10 or 9.

And I sat on the back speakers in the back

of the Laugh Factory.

I got to give him his little five minute

warning with the flashlight and tell him

it was time to get off the stage.

And it was kind of awesome, it was hilarious.

And I mean I have a great love for stand-up comedy,

and I think it really came from those two guys.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Growing up with them, yeah, so

did that really shape your guys' sense of humor,

because you guys were so young when you were on the show?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: That's why I needed Jesus.

JODIE SWEETIN: It's why I needed drugs.


Hey, look if you can't joke about it, you know what I mean.

KEVIN DUNCAN: There's no segue here.

There's no transition.

JODIE SWEETIN: No, there isn't, but you know what.

I mean I have a pretty dark and crazy sense of humor,

and I do think that I gained a real appreciation

for the darker humors from those guys,

because they're pretty dark.


Bob shaped my sense of humor, to which I had

to turn it off and reshape it.

AUDIENCE: Hi, I'm Misty and my heart's racing, which is funny.

But as you can see, we're in a corporate environment

but I did a tribute to you three by crimping my hair today.


AUDIENCE: This is not-- this is not natural.

KEVIN DUNCAN: She was the first one in the room today,

by the way.

AUDIENCE: I could kind of see Candace

staring at me being like, I wonder if that's her real hair.

So at Google we're taught to take one risk every day

that makes us really uncomfortable.

We call it uncomfortably excited.

So my question is would you make a Googler's dream come true

and take a picture with me crimping DJ's hair?


JODIE SWEETIN: That is awesome.

AUDIENCE: I found this, which is the three of you.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: It's a trading card.

AUDIENCE: I'm going to need that back.



AUDIENCE: I want you guys to feel very--

JODIE SWEETIN: Your necklace is fabulous by the way.

I love that.

It's amazing.

AUDIENCE: It's Google colors.

JODIE SWEETIN: It's really cute.

AUDIENCE: I actually thought what I'd

wear to complement you guys.

I want you to be very jealous.

JODIE SWEETIN: I was worried about what

you were going to wear at home.


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: She is directing this thing.


ANDREA BARBER: She's got a crimping iron

and she's about to touch her head.

Be careful. listen to her.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Should I be scared?

AUDIENCE: It's not on, don't worry.

ANDREA BARBER: It's not plugged in.


We're smiling right there.

Thank you.

JODIE SWEETIN: You are so welcome.



JODIE SWEETIN: That was awesome.

The fact that you have a crimping iron

impresses me greatly.

AUDIENCE: It took 45 minutes to warm up.

JODIE SWEETIN: Wow, and that, yeah,

that was quick in like 1987.

ANDREA BARBER: That was the best question on the press

tour so far, hands down.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Follow that up.

Follow that.

JODIE SWEETIN: It's just going to get weirder.

AUDIENCE: Hello, I have two things.

One, you three are all incredibly gorgeous.



AUDIENCE: And two, I have a question for the majestic human

being named Candace.

JODIE SWEETIN: Oh, look at you, majestic like an eagle.

AUDIENCE: I know that you were on "Dancing with the Stars"

and that is one of my all-time favorite shows.

I was wondering how your experience there was?

Did you like it more than "Full House" or equally?





CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: But nothing beats out you two.


Just checking.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: It was one of the greatest experiences

of my life, so much so that I wrote my third book using

"Dancing with the Stars" as the framework for it.

So it's called "Dancing Through Life,"

but I use that framework to talk about courage and conviction.

Because like you, stepping-- yeah, crimped hair.

I'm talking to you, and you're like tweeting out right now.


That was like my brave moment to step out

on a stage and dance, which I've never

danced before on live television every week.

And I wanted to throw up every week, because it was so scary.

AUDIENCE: You were great, by the way.


So it really, it changed me a lot

and it gave me a lot of courage.

And I take a lot more risks now, and I'm not

scared because I got through that process.

I enjoyed it, but it was scary.

I loved it, though.

ANDREA BARBER: And she killed it every week until the finals.

I'm so proud of you.


AUDIENCE: OK, so I have two feelings questions for you.

One is that for so many of us this show is very nostalgic.

So I was wondering what it was like for you guys, what

it felt like to sort of step back into that nostalgia.

Because I think for us watching this show is going

to be as close as we can get, but you guys almost

went back in time, and so I was wondering what that was like.

And also, how did it feel when they changed your bedrooms?

And you guys basically, when they--

in the original when they, for me it was a little bit

traumatic when they--


CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I'm with you on that.

I was like what are these orange walls?

Where's my geometric shaped bedspread?

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, remember that red bed?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I know, kind of sad.

But we had to move on.

JODIE SWEETIN: I think we-- when did we change that, too?

It was like the sixth season.

I don't know, I felt like it was fourth, fifth?

I don't even remember.

Anyway, it was traumatic.

We were sad, but we did have input

as to what our rooms were going to look like, at least I did.

Did they give you input?

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: What back in the day?



was talking about the new one.


JODIE SWEETIN: I thought she was talking about.

AUDIENCE: I haven't seen the new bedrooms.



It's a long day people, OK.

AUDIENCE: I meant when you guys were like 10 and 6.

JODIE SWEETIN: When we were little.


JODIE SWEETIN: I'm sure now it wouldn't be traumatic.

We know it's a set.

It's a thing.

It's OK.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I was traumatic-- I was

traumatized this time around.

Is that wrong?

JODIE SWEETIN: They haven't changed your bedroom.

It's like you're not even in your own bedroom.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Can you scratch my back?

I just want to be cuddled.

We're turning into children.

KEVIN DUNCAN: This has gotten weird, yeah.

It's gotten really weird.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: We get a little loopy.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, we did.

By the end of the day it's weird.

It's really weird.

No, but I don't think it was-- I mean we had fun.

We got to have input.

They were always really great at including the kids

in some of the stuff like that that went on.

So we got to talk about what we-- what posters we wanted

and what we wanted our rooms to look like.

And stepping back in, as far as nostalgia

goes, to stand on the set and work with these people

that we walked away from that home of ours 21 years ago

was an incredible experience.

And I don't think that it's-- I don't think anything really can

fully prepare you for what that feels like to stand there

in the kitchen with these people after you know 21 years ago

really tearfully saying goodbye and closing the door on that


KEVIN DUNCAN: And one final one.

AUDIENCE: This is crazy.

I think everyone in this room is geeking out right now,

and I've never seen anything like it.

But my question is, speaking of '90s nostalgia,

I work for Google Music, and so I'm

dying to know what each of your favorite '90s song is.

ANDREA BARBER: Well, we dance to mine on the pilot episode.

You can see it in the trailer right now. [SINGING] It's

the right stuff, oh, oh, oh, oh.

BOTH: Oh, oh, oh.

ANDREA BARBER: Yeah she's-- crimped hair is dancing.

BOTH: The right stuff.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: I got to-- it might be "You Oughta Know"

by Alanis Morisette.

JODIE SWEETIN: Oh, that's awesome.

KEVIN DUNCAN: That's awesome.


JODIE SWEETIN: God, I don't even know if I could pick one,

but I'm a '90s hip hop girl so that was kind of what

I grew up with and liked.

I was never-- the boy band thing wasn't my, wasn't my steeze.


JODIE SWEETIN: No, more like Tupac, Biggie, like that.


JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, yeah.

Although I did-- and I think actually that song was earlier,

like late '80s, because I seem to remember--


JODIE SWEETIN: No, "Baby's Got Back," Sir Mix-A-Lot.

That was later, never mind.

We're not going to go into a full dissection of '90s hip

hop right now, but yeah.

KEVIN DUNCAN: This one is too excited to not ask, so quickly.

AUDIENCE: I am, just like everyone.

JODIE SWEETIN: We'll shut up and let you ask and answer

the question.

We have too much, but we're just going

to actually sit here when everyone leaves

and keep talking.

AUDIENCE: Cool, well, thank you for letting

me ask my question, and again, totally awesome moment for us

right now.

This one is kind of awkward, but I wanted to ask it.

I was a little bit young for the show,

and I actually called the show Michelle,

because I loved her character so much.

And so it was kind of sad for me to see

that Mary-Kate and Ashley weren't going to be returning,

so I just wanted to see what your take on that was.

ANDREA BARBER: Yeah, Mary-Kate and Ashley

have moved on from the show.

They've moved on from Hollywood.

They're not in front of cameras anymore,

and we totally respect their decision to do that.

But I think we get that question a lot

from the press about why aren't they coming back.

But I think once you start to watch the first few episodes

of "Fuller House," you'll see that it is a very full house.

We have even more characters than we did originally,

if you can believe it.

And so we reference Michelle's character on the show

and she's still a part of the family,

but I don't think the character will be missed because there's

so much packed into this show.

AUDIENCE: And I still love you guys, too.

I just happened to call it Michelle when I was little,

but you guys were great.

JODIE SWEETIN: I've heard actually

that in Japan they call the show Michelle, strangely enough.

KEVIN DUNCAN: There we go.

ANDREA BARBER: There you go.

JODIE SWEETIN: No, I'm not kidding.

I've heard that that's like a common thing nickname for "Full

House" in Japan is Michelle.

AUDIENCE: Well thanks, guys.

KEVIN DUNCAN: But I think also not having Michelle

brought your character a little more forward too, Andrea.

I think having the balance of you three has been just,

it's been so fun and so interesting to see.

JODIE SWEETIN: Yeah, I think it's great.

We've got this sister relationship,

and she and Steph are--


JODIE SWEETIN: --battling.

KEVIN DUNCAN: It's perfect.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Clearly, we love each other.

KEVIN DUNCAN: Well, thank you guys so much for being here.

So let's thank them for being here guys.

CANDACE CAMERON-BURE: Thank you guys for coming.

JODIE SWEETIN: Thank you so much.

CANDACE CAMERON BURE: We appreciate it.

KEVIN DUNCAN: So you can catch "Fuller House" on Netflix

February 26 at 12:01.

So check it out guys, all the episodes will be on there.



KEVIN DUNCAN: Thank you guys for being here

and we'll see next time.

JODIE SWEETIN: Thank you, guys.
