Lending money to pal Arnie comes easily for Dan, but when he needs the money back sooner than Arnie can repay, he has trouble asking family for a loan. Jackie steps in and offers to help, but Dan refuses time after time.


  • Arnie tells Roseanne in this episode that him and Nancy are getting married. In the season 2 episode "Five of a Kind," Arnie said his girlfriend's name was Sharon.


D.J. (to Roseanne): Darlene called me a prevert.
Roseanne: You're not a prevert honey, you're a pervert.

Roseanne (to Dan): Well how come it's okay to go to the bank and pay all this huge interest, but it's not okay to get it from Jackie for nothing.
Dan: It's good business, dear.

Becky (after complaining to Roseanne about D.J. walking in on her in the shower): Your son is sick!
Darlene: Yeah, well, now that he saw you naked, he's probably upstairs puking his guts out.

Darlene: Now the little pervert's peeking at me!
Becky: Why?

Arnie (about DJ): Kid's a peeper, huh? Brings back memories.
Roseanne: You have sisters too?
Arnie: I wish!

Dan : And what if he can't? What do we do? Repossess?
Roseanne : Yeah, and then we'll give them to Darlene so D.J. has something to look at!
