Bingo Blitz Monday, July 20, 2020 Reading time: 3 minutes Public You don’t get to choose your neighbors, but what if you did? Help Blitzy move all his loved ones under the same roof in Bingo Full House! Who had these stories on their bingo cards, ending with a full house? I’m always disappointed that Southsea’s hoverbus has conventional wheels, but the future inched closer with January’s story of a dentist convicted for pulling teeth while on a hoverboard. 2.06: Beach Boy BingoOne of my absolute favorite performances. You can't beat raw spontaneity. AND they were all really singing (not miming) AND they brought. The generally-accepted (but usually unwritten) rules of behaviour that govern the way bingo players interact with each other and the house. For land-based bingo, these generally include rules such as maintaining quiet while numbers are being called, not repeating numbers as they are called, and smoking only in designated areas.

Stephanie and Michelle are sitting in a rocket chair reading a book.
Stephanie: Cinderella and the handsome prince lived happily ever after. Wasn't that a nice story?
Stephanie: Again! Okay. Once upon a time Cinderella left her shoe, found her shoe and lived happily ever after.
Michelle: Bad story. Again!
Stephanie: Pretty smart for somebody who drivels. Once upon a time in a far- away land there lived a girl named..
Stephanie, DJ and Michelle are at the kitchen table
DJ: Stephanie, what are you doing?
Stephanie: I'm looking for the giant- glow in the dark- dinosaur.
DJ: You know dad's rule: You never put your arm in to somebody else's breakfast.
Stephanie pours the cereals in a bowls
Stephanie: He escaped.
Danny: Cowabunga, beach buddies!
DJ: All right, surf's up, dude!
Michelle: Hi daddy!
Danny: I cannot believe the Beach Boys are gonna be on my show today. I am stoked, whatever that means.
DJ: You like the Beach Boys. I like the Beach Boys. We both like the same group. I must be getting old.
Joey comes up from the basement and Jesse comes down from upstairs. They and Danny start singing
Joey: Let's go surfin' now
Danny and Joey: Everybody's learnin' how
Jesse, Danny and Joey: Come on, on safari with me. Come on, on safari with me, yeah me, yeah me. (Jesse in the background) Surfin' safari, surfin' safari, surfin' safari.
Danny: Boy, we're mediocre.
Jesse: Hi girls!
Stephanie and DJ: Hi!
They sit down to eat breakfast
Stephanie: Hold it!
Stephanie checks Joey's cereal bowl
Joey: Steph, what are you doing?
Stephanie: Looking for a dinosaur.
Joey: Check the Flintstone- vitamins.
Michelle checks her bowl too.
Joey: Danny, thanks again for inviting me and Jesse to meet the Beach Boys.
Danny: Are you kidding! Joey, remember the first time we ever heard the Beach Boys?
Joey: (laughing) We tried to become surfers.
Danny: What a disaster.
Joey: Who knew ironing- boards didn't float?
Jesse: I remember the first time I heard 'Good vibrations'. I was in the first grade. I turned to my date and said: 'Have mercy!'
Danny starts coughing while eating cereals and he takes out a little red dinosaur out of his mouth
Danny: What the heck is this?!
Stephanie: That can't be my giant glow- in the dark- dinosaur. It looks like a dino- shrimp.
In the TV- studio.
Set Worker: 30 seconds, Danny!
Danny: You guys hang in there. The Beach Boys will be on in the next segment.
Jesse: All right.
Danny runs away
Joey: Jesse, I have a crazy idea.
Jesse: (surprised) No!
Joey: You know our jingle for the 'Beach butter' suntan lotion' we've been trying to sell.
Jesse: O, sure. 'Beach butter (Joey tunes in) Butter your but!'
Jesse: Yeah, I know that one.
Joey: Yeah, well suntan lotion, the Beach Boys (He takes out a tape from his pocket), our 'Beach butter' jingle. Getting any connection here?
Jesse: Joseph, these guys are legends, man, we can't ask the Beach Boys to sing a meaningless jingle.
Joey: It wouldn't hurt to ask.
Jesse: Wrong! You ask and I'll hurt you.
Danny: (into the TV- camera) Welcome back! I am stoked. Whatever that means. Welcome. According to our schedule my co- host, Rebecca is walking down the hall with the Beach Boys as we speak. And now I'm getting a note. And now I'm getting a migraine. O, the Beach boys' plain can't land due to fog. But hey, I promised you to hear 'Good Vibrations', and I never break a promise. (Danny takes a guitar)
Jesse: O no, he wouldn't!
Joey: He shouldn't!
Danny: (starts singing) I'm picking up good vibrations, she's giving me exaltations.
Then the second guy goes: good, good, good, good vibrations. Then the third guy goes: good, good, good, good vibrations. Then the fourth guy goes: na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na. And a singer goes: Oooo..
Later in the kitchen Danny has ironed his jacket and then starts ironing his tie (while he is wearing it), when Kimmy walks in.
Kimmy: Hi, Mr. Tanner! Ironing your tie again? Is DJ home?
Danny: She's doing her homework. But I'm sure you'll put an end to that.
Kimmy: Tuff break about the Beach Boys not showing. I guess they had something better to do.
Danny: Have you ever heard of fog, Gibbler?
Kimmy runs upstairs and Jesse and Joey enters the kitchen
Jesse: Danny, where's the radio at?
Joey: Quick, turn it on. They are playing our jingle at 3.45.
Jesse: Sssch! Here we go, here we go!
Radio Man: You can get it all with 'Beanos'.
Joey: Here it comes.
On the radio: Eat at 'Beanos'!
Jesse: That's it?! I can't believe they chopped our jingle to shreds. It's supposed to go..
Jesse and Joey: Eat at 'Beanos'- today!
Danny: Those butchers.
Radio Man: Okay it's time for our bit contest where you can win a dream night with the Beach boys.
Radio Man: Including two front row seats for tomorrow night's concert. Just be our seventh caller and name the Beach Boys hit.
Jesse takes the phone
Joey: No, wait, It's the seventh caller. (He does a funny voice) Hello, you're the third caller. Hello, you're the fourth caller. Hello you're the fifth caller.
Jesse: Give me that! (In to the phone) Hello.. DJ! Sorry! (He hangs up the phone.)
Jesse: DJ's on the phone. We got to get that kid her own line, folks.
Radio Man: Okay, we have a seventh caller. What is your name?
DJ: DJ Tanner.
Danny, Jesse and Joey: DJ!
Stephanie, DJ and Kimmy are upstairs in Stephanie and DJ's room
Stephanie: DJ, you're on the radio!
DJ: I know, I know. Be quiet!
Radio Man: Pardon me?
DJ: Not you.
Radio Man: Okay, DJ Tanner that dream night with the Beach boys. Can you name this hit song?
The radio starts playing a song
Danny, Jesse and Joey: 'Help me Rhonda'!
DJ: The name of the song is..(whispering) Help me, Gibbler!
Radio Man: Can you repeat that answer, please
DJ: What did I just say?
Kimmy: You said, Help me Gibbler.
DJ: I think what I said was.. Help me..
The guys come running into their roomD
anny, Jesse and Joey: Rhonda!
Radio Man: That's right. 'Help me Rhonda'!
They all shout for joy
Radio Man: DJ Tanner, you're going to be picked up in a limousine be the Beach Boys themselves.
The family + Kimmy: O, yeah!
Radio Man: You'll travel with them to their sold out concert.
DJ: O, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Jesse: All right, a night with Rock n' Roll royalty, folks.
Joey: And another chance to pitch'em 'Beach butter'.
Danny: Maybe I can get them back on my show.
Radio Man: Have you thought about, who you'll be bringing with you to share this once in a life time night with the Beach Boys?
Radio Man: I bet everyone in San Francisco would love to go. But remember you can only bring one lucky guest.
DJ: Only one?
Full House Beach Boy BingoMichelle: Me, me!
Next morning in the kitchen
Danny: Cheeseburger for breakfast?
Joey: Hey, I can scramble yours if you like.
Jesse: I know what he is up to. He's making DJ's favorite food to butter up, so she'll take him to the Beach Boys' concert. Joseph, you're a disgrace!
DJ comes from upstairs with a walk-man
DJ: Uncle Jesse thanks for making that tape with my favorite song.
Joey: One disgrace burger. (Giving Jesse a burger)
Jesse: Hey, I had an extra tape. Five hours to kill.
DJ: Cheeseburgers for breakfast. Nice touch, Joey! Any fries?
Joey shows her some fries and blink with his eye. Kimmy enters.
Kimmy: I bet I know who wants a plate of my mum's double fudge brownies.
Stephanie: I do! I do!
Kimmy: Dream on squirt. These are for DJ from her best friend Kimmy with love.
Stephanie: If you think she's going to pick you over her own sister then you haven't seen how I made her bed this morning.
Danny: Guys, enough of this. DJ is not going to make her choice based on bribes and special treatment. That's not how I raised my daughter- my first born. Now, tell everybody who you're picking.
Jesse: Yeah, come on. Here we go, here we go!
DJ: Okay, here goes. I pick..boy I hate to see this end. I wish I could take all of you. But since I can't, I pick..Uncle Jesse.
Jesse: O, yeah! Thank you!
Joey: Hey, congratulations!
Jesse: All right, thanks.
Stephanie and Kimmy: Congratulations!
Danny: Well, what a surprise. Have a great time, Jesse.
Jesse: Thanks! I'll bring you, guys, back t- shirts and stuff.
Joey: Two t- shirts.
Danny and Michelle in Michelle's room painting
Danny: A, Michelle that's so abstract, so surreal.
Danny: Pretty? Yes, that too. But honey, the great secret to great art is to keep all the paint on the paper.
DJ walks in
DJ: Dad, is this a good outfit for tonight?
Danny: O yeah, that's beautiful, honey. You're gonna have a great time.
DJ: I can't wait.
DJ is about to leave the room
Danny: DJ, hold on! Just out of curiosity. How come you picked Uncle Jesse to go with you tonight?
DJ: Because he loves the Beach Boys and he is a musician.
Danny: O, well that makes sense.
DJ: I mean dad, you're a talk show- host, if I won a night with Oprah Winfrey I would definitely pick you.
Danny: Well thanks, but I like music too, just cause I'm not in a band. I mean, I grew up with the Beach Boys. But hey, it's no big deal.
DJ: Dad, you don't feel bad, do you?
Danny: No, no, it's no problem. After all I got to go with you to see 'Smurfs on ice'. Go ahead go get dressed.
Meanwhile Michelle has painted on her drawer
Danny: O Michelle, honey, on the paper, on the paper.
He starts cleaning the drawer and Michelle starts painting Danny's pants
Michelle: Daddy pretty.
Danny: O Michelle, can you say dry- cleaner? Say dry- cleaner.
Jesse and Joey in Jesse's room. Jesse is getting ready for a night with The Beach boys.
Joey: Jesse, picture it, you and DJ sitting in a limo with the Beach Boys you just happen to have a tape of our awesome totally tubular nearly 'Beach butter' jingle, dude.
Jesse: A/ Don't call me dude. B/ It's a dumb idea. And two/ I don't have a tape.
Joey: Check your pocket!
Jesse checks his pocket and finds a tape
Jesse: How do you do that?
Joey: Never mind, just think about it.
Jesse: Okay, get out!
Joey: You need to mellow down, dude. I'm serious, man.
Joey leaves the room and Jesse shuts the door, but it gets open again.
Jesse: I said can you..! (Sees that it's Danny) Hi, how are you? Come on in!
Danny: Jesse, look at this. (Showing Jesse Michelle's painting). An original Michelle Tanner. One day this will be hanging in the Metropolitan museum of art, or the refrigerator.
DJ enters the room
DJ: O, great you are both here. I forgot I promised Kimmy we go ice- skating. So dad, I want you to go with Uncle Jesse to the Beach Boys tonight. Have a great time. (She leaves the room)
Jesse: DJ! (To Danny) What was that all about?
Danny: Maybe she thinks she hurt my feelings when she picked you to go instead of her own father.
Jesse: Did she hurt your feelings?
Danny: Well, maybe a little. I just thought she wanted to go with her dad. But I guess I can't compete with 'Uncle Rock n' Roll'.
Jesse: What are you saying here? Are you saying that you're jealous of me? Cause if anybody should be jealous it should be me jealous of you.
Danny: That makes no sense.
Jesse: Danny, you have something going with these girls that I will never have. I mean like Stephanie what she made her first ceramic hand print, who did she give it to? Dad! And what was Michelle's very first word?
Jesse: After cookie. She looked up at you and she said Da- da. And DJ when she gets married, who's gonna marches her down the aisle?
Jesse: That's right dad. See there's three good reasons why I envy you. I just hope one day I'm lucky enough to have kids that love me as much as those girls love you.
Danny: They do worship me, don't they?! Jesse thanks for reminding me how lucky I am.
Jesse: (In a disliked tone) You're gonna hug me, aren't you?
Danny: You leave me no choice. (Danny hugs him)
Jesse: A, jees!
In DJ and Steph's room DJ is sitting in her bed when Danny enters.
Danny: DJ look, I'm sorry I put you in a tuff spot. Picking Uncle Jesse was fine. You two should just go and have a great time.
DJ: But the Beach Boys mean a lot to you. I want you to go.
Jesse and Stephanie enter the room
Jesse: DJ, I changed my mind about the Beach Boys. I want you to go with your father.
Danny: I'm not going.
DJ: This concert was supposed to be fun. Now everybody is either just or disappointed. It's just not worth it. I'm not going.
Different Ways To Play BingoStephanie: I'll go.
Joey walks in
Joey: You go where?
Stephanie: To see the Beach Boys. Want to be my date?
Joey: What are you wearing? We should coordinate.
Danny: Hold it! DJ is going.
DJ: I said I'm not going.
Danny: Well, if you're not going then nobody are going.
Everybody start arguing and the phone rings. Stephanie takes the call.
Stephanie: Hello! (To the family) Excuse me! I'm on the phone! (In the phone) no..no..no.. no.. bye!
Jesse: Who was it?
Stephanie: Some Beach Boy. He called from a limo right on our driveway. I told him none is going.
The others run out from the room
Jesse: Hold it!
Stephanie: Did I miss something?
Danny, Jesse, Joey and DJ are running down the stairs and Jesse opens the door
The Beach Boys stand outside the door
The Beach Boys: Okay!
Danny: Hey, you're the Beach Boys. Come on in! Would you mind wiping you feet first? Thanks.
They all shake hands
Joey: Wow! You're Al, you're
Bruce: , you're Brian, you're Carl, you're Mike!
The Beach Boys start shaking hands and saying hi to each other
Carl: Is there a DJ Tanner here?
DJ: Yeah, that's me. Hi!
Al: We heard you're not coming to the concert, Bon Jovi in town?
DJ: No it's a long story.
Bruce: : We've got time
Brian: They never start the show without us.
Mike: Let's order a vegetarian pizza.
Stephanie comes down from upstairs
Stephanie: Hey, who are these guys?
Jesse: Well Stephanie, I'd like to introduce to you the legendary Beach Boys!
Stephanie: Big boys!
Mike: Cute kid!
Later that night the family is sitting in the living room together with the Beach Boys singing 'Kokomo'
Jesse: Man, this is great! Hanging out with the Beach Boys, singing, eating pizza. Do you guys want to come up and see my room? What am I saying?
Joey: Jesse, come here for a minute.
Jesse: Okay, excuse me Beach Boys.
Joey: This is our big chance. They are at our house. Give them our tape.
Jesse: That's a good point, Joseph. They are cool guys. They're hanging out with us, eating pizza. All right! I'm gonna give it a shot.
Joey: Go get them, partner.
Jesse: All right! I don't have a tape.
Joey: Check your pocket!
Jesse checks his pocket
Jesse: How do you do that?
Mike: Thanks, it's really been a great evening. And for once nobody bugged us to listen to some song they have written.
Jesse throws the tape to Joey
Jesse: I hate when that happens, Mike.
Carl: Okay DJ, who's coming with you.
DJ: A, well..?
Al: Beach Boy huddle!
The Beach Boys make a huddle and sing a harmony
Bruce: : We talked it over. And we'd like all of you to be our guests.
The Family: O, yeah!
Jesse: Thank you so much.
Brian: A request.
They sing 'Kokomo'
At the concert Beach Boys are singing 'Kokomo' and the family stand beside the scene.
Mike: That was really good. Thank you for singing along everybody on 'Kokomo'. And now we'd like to introduce some new friends to help us on the next song. They are the Tanner family!
The family runs up on stage and they all sing 'Barbara- Ann' in front of a huge audience. In the end of the song Joey puts a tape in Mike Love's pocket.
Carl: Let's hear it for the Tanner family, San Francisco!
They all bow
The family is on stage with the Beach Boys, goofing around and in the background we hear the song 'Fun, fun, fun'.

This simple beginners’ guide was originally written for my work colleagues after I arranged a bingo night and realised not one of them had ever played bingo before or knew how to play. It’s written with the complete bingo newbie in mind.
Never Played Bingo Before? Then This Is The Guide For You!
On arriving at the hall, buy your bingo books from the book sales desk in the main area of the hall – it should be clearly signposted. If not, ask a member of staff, they’re there to help! At the counter you will be asked how many books you require. One book will contain multiple pages, each page is a different game.
A bingo ticket looks like this:
It has 15 numbers, arranged in columns 1-9, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, etc. up to 90.
The more books you buy, the more tickets you have in play in a single game. You can buy between 1 and 6 books. If you have 6 books then every number called is on your book. If you buy 3 books you will only have half the numbers between 1 and 90 per game, so not every number called will be on your book.
Personally, I find 6 books easier to play, as you know you have to mark every number called. As a beginner though, I would recommend trying 2 or 3 – remember though, the less books you have, the longer you have to wait for numbers to be called. Bingo calling in the bingo clubs is a speedy affair. There are no clickety-clicks or 2 fat ladies in the modern game. You have to concentrate and move fast otherwise you lose out!
All around the hall, other games are going on. You need to check which times the main sessions begin, as there are many intervals throughout the night. When the main games are ready to begin, an announcement to take your seats will be made by the caller, and the hall will fall silent.
Eyes Down, We’re Looking For The Line!
When the game is ready to start, turn to the first page in your book. The caller will announce whether you are playing for a LINE ACROSS, TWO LINES ACROSS or a FULL HOUSE – he will also announce which colour page in which book you are playing – check you are on the right ticket.
If you play the wrong ticket and win you will not get the money so always check around you to see everyone is on the same ticket. If the caller starts before you are ready, quickly shout ‘hang-on’ to give you time to catch up. If you’re stuck, other members sat near will generally help you out if you ask nicely, or try to attract the attention of a member of staff if that fails. Be quick though, as the rest of the hall will groan if you hold them up too long!
As the caller announces the numbers, mark them off clearly in your bingo book, only on the page you are playing. Most games will be played for the line then the full house. A line is 5 numbers in a straight row, across the ticket like this:
One line across
Once that has been won the game moves on to the full house (15 numbers on one ticket, 3 rows.) There will be no more prizes awarded for a line.
Occasionally there will be a game for two lines between the line and the full house – listen for the caller to announce it.
2 Lines Across (must be on one ticket!)
Once you are the first to have a line across, two lines across or a full house, shout out loudly. You can shout ‘House!’ Bingo!’ ‘Knickers!’ ‘Here!’ Or whatever you want to stop the caller – just make it LOUD!
You must also shout fast. If the number you need to win comes up, and you don’t call straight away you can lose the money. If the caller starts the next number by just a breath before you stop him, you are too late, have lost, and get no money.
Hold up your hand and a member of staff will come to check you have the winning ticket. You need to give them your membership card and sign for your prize money which will be given to you at the table.
Golden Rules For Playing Bingo!
The regulars of any bingo club are renowned for their viciousness when it comes to the rules of the game and will give you a going over if you don’t observe them.
The main rule is when a game is on – be quiet, even if you aren’t playing. I can’t stress how important this is! You will be strung up from the nearest fruit machine if you talk when the proper bingo is on. However, it is fine to talk when the table/party bingo is played in the interval.
As the tables are not officially kept for the members, it’s common for regulars to mark their territory – if you see a table that looks empty but has items such as a glasses case or a couple of pens on it, stay away. That means the table is being kept for a friend… Otherwise beware!
Use thick markers or dabbers – if you try playing with a biro you will find it difficult to keep up! They can be purchased at the club. Circle or cross your numbers out as soon as they are called.
Dabbers – Markers (avoid black as it
obscures your numbers)
Bingo can be good fun, especially if you win some money! It is a game of speed and concentration. However, bingo is also an activity enjoyed and frequented by people from many walks of life and backgrounds.
As such, if you are easily offended by homemade/faded black tattoos, cheap gold jewellery worn over Primark polo-necks, sports leisure wear, colourful language, blue rinses, a number of signet rings worn on one hand and people smoking Mayfair cigarettes then bingo is not the game for you.
You have been warned! ;)
