  • Take notice of Dan's wet hair as he perspires profusely during the second half of this episode.


Becky (to Roseanne): When you first went out with Daddy, did you want to kiss him all the time?
Roseanne: Well, somebody had to do it. And you know me, "work, work, work."
Becky: When did you know that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with him?
Roseanne: Oh well, I ain't decided that yet. We're just gonna raise you kids, ya know, and then if we still like kissin' each other, then we'll decide.

DJ: I can't work this damn thing.
Roseanne: Where'd you get that language? This isn't a thing. It's a VCR.

Darlene: Let's rent "Lethal Weapon 2," "Jaws 3" and "Nightmare on Elm Street 4."
Roseanne: Yeah? Well you better go wash your hands for dinner or I'll make you watch Dr. Zee-vago again.

Dan (to Roseanne): You wanna come with us to the video store?
Roseanne: Nah.
D.J.: Mom, we're getting "Star Wars."
Roseanne: Oh really? No, I'll stay here in case Jackie comes by, but may the force be with you.
Dan: Hell, you are the force.

Roseanne: (to Becky) You can't take her to that party. There'll be boys there.

Darlene: There are boys at school and you let me go there
