Stephanie Tanner Was The Queen Of Sass

by Kaitlin Reilly

Sass: some people have it, and others — well, don't. When it comes to '90s sitcom characters, however, there was one little lady that had enough sass to take on the entire TGIF lineup, and that was middle child Stephanie Tanner of the ever-iconic Full House. When you think of all of the reasons for Steph's string of sassiness, it makes a whole lot of sense: As the middle kid, she was sandwiched between perpetual good girl DJ and the forever "aww!"-worthy Michelle, so Steph had to stand out in some way. This, of course, wasn't exactly easy when you have approximately a billion people living in the same house — so, sometimes sass was the only way to make people listen. Steph was snarky beyond her years, and it was always amazing and something to aspire to.

There are too many moments of Steph's epic sassiness to count, and a full re-watch of the series may be in order to fully appreciate the level that this sitcom character reached. But since that would take forever, here are some Full House moments that prove Steph was the ultimate Queen Of Sass.
