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.

Another Uncle Jesse catchphrase was “have mercy.” He often used it in the context of his romantic life, but fans could expect to hear him utter the relatable phrase anytime he was trying to catch a break. And who doesn’t need a little mercy every once in a while?
“Remember how tough I was?”
In one memorable Full House scene, Uncle Jesse tried to defend his own honor by pointing out that he once had chickenpox and got through it. He hadn’t actually had chicken pox as a kid, but if he had, he would’ve been so brave. Same, Uncle Jesse, same. Let’s all be tough today.

Uncle Jesse might have been the wildcard of the family, but he always let everyone know how much he loved them. In one adorable scene, he held his arms wide apart to show Michelle how much he loved her. Go for it! Tell your loved ones you love them today, just like he did all those years ago.
