“Steve and Carl use a time transporting device to travel back in time. In spite of Steve’s warnings not to tamper with the past, Carl leaves a note for himself to make investments in stocks that will skyrocket. When Carl and Steve return to the present, they find out that Carl is the richest man in the world, worth about $247 billion. Unfortunately, they also find out that Carl hasn’t hugged Estelle in years, that Harriette is divorcing him, and that Eddie and Laura were never born.”

The next morning, Urkel learns that Myra is going to a convent, causing the nerd to assume that she plans to join. He quickly enlists Eddie and Waldo to dress as nuns to find Myra and get her to reconsider her joining the nunnery. Of course, she had gone there to visit her aunt, but none of this comes out in the open until the guys are nearly arrested.

“After NASA buys the patent to one of Urkel’s inventions, he’s sent into space with a pair of astronauts to test it out.
