We’re supposed to believe that Steve’s extraordinary accomplishments are all a result of his genius intellect, but no human being in the history of existence has been able to do the things this teenage nerd can do. If he were a real person, his scientific discoveries would have completely redefined our way of life. Steve Urkel would have singlehandedly propelled our species into its next stage of evolution. But to the rest of the characters on the show, Urkel’s miracles are treated like annoying everyday occurrences. We never see someone at the end of the episode go “Steve, maybe if you work the kinks out of your machine that turns anybody into Bruce Lee you can sell it to the military and make a fortune.” It’s as if the other characters are purposely turning a blind eye to all the fricked up things he’s able to do.
I've always thought about this myself. Steve was able to bring the world cloning, teleportation, time travel, etc.
shite even if he didn't want to share some of his inventions with the world he could have at least used his time travel machine to go kill Hitler or something. Instead he uses it to go play fricking pirate with Carl.
