Plot Summary[]

It's a Thanksgiving in a typical Conner family fashion. Becky volunteers to take over cooking duties while Dan and Mark are still at each others throats, Fred is shocked at the dysfunction of the family he may marry into and Nana Mary reveals a long-kept secret about Bev's marriage.

In long-terms, Fred got Jackie pregnant before they got married & Bev says that she “must” suffer the consequences, but Nana Mary reveals that Bev did the same thing ( Al got her pregnant with Roseanne before they got married in June, 1952 & Roseanne was born in November, 1952 ). Beverly then suffers a breakdown & leaves the house, with Roseanne & Jackie following after her.

Dan & Mark still dislike each other, because Dan still doesn’t approve of Mark & Becky. The fight ended up with BOTH Dan & Mark hitting each other & Roseanne coming in to stop it before it gets worse.
