Barky

Insulting nickname given to Dana Foster (Staci Keanan) by her stepbrother J.T. Lambert (Brandon Call) on the sitcom STEP BY STEP/ABC/1991-98.

J.T. once teased Dana about not being invited to a party, saying, “I’d invite you, but they don’t allow dogs!” He also called Dana “Vampira,” “Frosty the Step-sister” and “The Undateable.”

In turn, Dana called J. T. a sleazeball and a knuckle-dragger, among others quips.

Frank’s nephew Cody Lambert (Sasha Mitchell) however thought that Dana was very attractive, and once said, “If she were a prehistoric creature, she’d be a “BABE”-ertooth tiger.”

Dana, however, thought Cody was “a brain-dead idiot” She elaborated with, “If I had the choice of going out with you or putting out an oil fire with my tongue, I’d be on the first plane to Kuwait.”
