Full House’s Dave Coulier Jokes He’s Still Opening Texts from Bob Saget: ‘That’s How Many He Sent’

Everywhere you look… Full house the actors are back together! On Saturday, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber, Scott Weinger and Full House creator Jeff Franklin took the stage at ’90s Con to revisit some of their best moments from both Full house and a fuller house. Of course, Bob Saget was present in spirit as the cast reflected on some of their favorite things about the late comedian. Coulier joked about how Saget is still an unexpected presence in his life — and his phone. “I still open the messages he sent me. He sent me so many,” Coulier joked during Full house panel moderated by PEOPLE Senior Editor Breanne L. Heldman.

Sweetin, who played Stephanie on the family sitcom, also recalled Saget signing his lines — a joke in itself after decades of friendship. “He would always sign off all his texts, ‘That’s Bob, by the way.'”

Along with Saget, John Stamos, the Olsen twins (who were conspicuously absent from a fuller house reboot series on Netflix) and Lori Loughlin were also missing from the panel.

“Usually you’re doing a show, and when the show’s over, everybody kind of walks off and you might see them occasionally,” Coulier said. “This is… I can’t get rid of these guys.”

Citing their real-life events, Coulier continued, “We’ve been through everything a family goes through — births and deaths and marriages and divorces and breakups and relationships and takeovers and cancellations. We’ve been through everything — well, families don’t take over or they cancel,” he said before adding a joke about the cancellation culture, “Well, in today’s culture.”

Coulier’s sentiment reflects the unconditional support of viewers Full house fell in love as they watched the Tanner family grow. “You know, we’ve just been through so much. Life is a roller coaster, and we’ve been there for each other through it all,” he said. “It’s just amazing that when we see each other, it’s like no time has passed. Everything just kind of fell into place and I’m forever grateful for that.”

Sometimes that support is personal, while sometimes it’s in the ongoing group chat of the actors. Barber previously told PEOPLE that Saget was “the heart of all our group conversations” after the show went off the air. His specialty: having a “very sideways” conversation.
