In-Depth[edit | edit source]
Becky Conner comes over to the house with a new dog but she upsets Roseanne Conner because she's going to a doctor fertility appointment today. Becky goes to the exam with Jackie Harris where they meet Andrea who gives Becky a Faberge egg as a thank you. Darlene Conner Healy has an interview a build-a-bear. Roseanne stalks Andrea online in order to stop Becky from giving her the baby. Dan Conner says that while they want to they can't stop her and that she has to stop interfering with Becky. At the exam, they learn that Becky's eggs are poor quality and that she has less than a 5% chance of getting pregnant.
This causes Andrea to leave Becky and she takes back the Faberge egg. Jackie tells Roseanne and Dan that Becky isn't going through with it because of what the doctor said. Becky comes over to pick up her laundry and yells at Roseanne for not being there for her. Roseanne tells Jackie to go to the shelter and get back Becky's dog but the shelter won't give him to her. This causes Roseanne and Jackie to head to the rescue together while Darlene goes to Beck's work to comfort her. She tells Becky that she didn't get the build-a-bear job. Roseanne tries to convince the rescue lady to give them the dog but they can't so they end up stealing him. Becky tells Darlene that her and Mark were trying to have kids and she hasn't met anyone she'd want to have kids with since. Darlene tells her that it's not betraying Mark to move on. Dan and Roseanne arrive to pick up Darlene but Roseanne and Becky have a conversation. Roseanne tells her that she's sorry that she wasn't there for Becky. Becky says that she can't have kids and thought she had more time. Roseanne tells her that she got pregnant in her forties and that it happens when you least expect it. She also tells her that she was the one baby that she did want. Jackie tries to train the dog but she is training him to be his own independent dog. Dan says that that means he isn't trained at all.
