“Watch the hair!”

On Full House, Uncle Jesse was obsessed with his hair, speaking sweet nothings to it in the mirror. He also didn’t like anyone to mess with his locks. Thus, one of his many catchphrases — “Watch the hair” — was born. Honestly, be like Uncle Jesse, and don’t let anyone touch your hair either.

“I’m worth it.”

When Aunt Becky wanted to know why Jesse was dying his hair, he responded, “Because I’m worth it.” Uncle Jesse was a self-love king from the start on Full House — and its spinoff Fuller House. Be your own biggest fan.
