From the start, the girls stole the show. As they grew older, their popularity continued. Danny’s friend from college and brother-in-law helped raise the girls and nicknamed Michelle munchkin. Her famous line, “You got it dude”, was often featured on the show and became an American catch phrase as the Olsen twins delivered the adorable line.
