Jodie Sweetin recently dropped a well-timed hint at an iconic Full House scene that might make her daughter think, “How rude!”

The 42-year-old actress, who starred as a child in the hit ABC sitcom Full House, shared a photo of a sweet family moment on Instagram on Fri., March 29. In the photo, Sweetin posed inside a car while wearing large pink sunglasses. Sitting beside the mother of two was her oldest daughter, Zoie.

“This is me not at all worried while riding with Zo practicing her ‘neighborhood driving’ with her new Drivers Permit,” Sweetin wrote in her Instagram caption. “Actually,” the actress admitted, “she was VERY good.”

The Dancing with the Stars alum then reminded fans of the iconic scene she starred in years ago as Stephanie Tanner, the middle child on Full House. “As long as she never backs the car through the kitchen…” Sweetin joked.

The scene Sweetin was hinting at involved a young Stephanie accidentally backing a car that belonged to Joey Gladstone, played by Dave Coulier, into the family home’s kitchen. The scene began with Sweetin’s character climbing into the car and buckling her seatbelt so that she could pretend to drive. The problem began when Stephanie decided that she needed “some driving music” and turned the car on before mistaking the “R” in the gear shift for “radio.” The car then reversed until it broke through the wall of the house and came to a stop just inside the kitchen.

Fans appeared to be amused by Sweetin’s reference to the memorable scene, though they assured her that Zoie wouldn’t make the same mistake.

“I see what you did there,” one fan noted of Sweetin’s reference, while another wrote that they "had a feeling you were going to say that.” Several fans also shared GIFs of the moment in question when the car plowed into the Tanner residence.

One Instagram user praised the “iconic” scene before writing, “The good news is, she knows R doesn’t mean radio (and what it actually does).” A few fans quoted memorable lines from other characters who also appeared in the episode’s storyline.

“Best episode ever,” one fan declared.
