Best known as TV dad Danny Tanner on the hit ’90s sitcom Full House, Bob Saget’s character always knew exactly what to say. Now, following the actor and comedian’s sudden death, Danny’s heartfelt advice continues to ring true and is providing comfort to fans who are missing him.
After the news of Bob’s death broke on January 9, fans of the Fuller House star and former America’s Funniest Home Videos host rallied together to pay tribute to his incredible four-decade career on social media. Some are resurfacing one particularly emotional scene from a Full House episode titled “The Miracle of Thanksgiving.” In the minute-long clip from season one, Danny consoles his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) about missing his deceased sister Pam during the holiday season. Trying to offer comfort, Danny opens up to Jesse in a moving way.

“I know that feeling, Jesse, and I don’t think it completely goes away,” Danny said. “Sometimes it’s easier, but on days like these, it’s real hard. But you don’t have to go through this alone … Talking about it, that’s what helps me. Talking about the memories that’s what keeps her in your heart.”
Reacting to the video on Twitter, fans collectively shared how much they miss Bob. “It’s so sad,” one person wrote. “This clip explains how we feel about him being gone and there he is comforting us still. I miss him so much.”

In the days lead up to his death, Bob was traveling and performing standup comedy as part of his “I Don’t Do Negative” tour. According to People, after doing a two-hour show in Jacksonville, he returned back to the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando, where he was staying. But his family grew concerned when they couldn’t get in contact with him the next day.
When a hotel staff member did a wellness check on Bob, he was found “unresponsive” in bed with “no pulse.” Shortly after, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office pronounced him dead at the scene. A complete autopsy is still pending, but officials suspect it could have been caused by a heart attack or stroke.
One by one, Bob’s fellow Full House cast members shared words about their former costar, including John. “I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock,” he tweeted. “I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.”
