Stefan Returns is the twenty-fourth episode and the fifth season finale in this television sitcom on Family Matters, which was aired from ABC on May 13, 1994. It was directed by John Tracy and written by Fred Fox Jr. and Jim Geoghan.

Plot Edit

Urkel, still pining for Laura's heart, renovates his Stefan Urquelle alter-ego, inventing a transformation chamber to do so. He's a much friendlier, caring person this time but the formula wears off just as Laura professes her love for Stefan. After Laura leaves in a heartbroken huff, claiming that Stefan left her ("I must be cursed! I finally find the perfect guy: handsome, cool and caring. I give him my heart, and what does he do? He leaves me..."), Urkel is resolved to one day make Stefan permanent.
