Plot summaryEdit

Roseanne's meddling results in silence between the sisters, but Jackie has exciting news to share.


Roseanne: (to Becky) I have just as much fun with Crystal as I ever did with your Aunt Jackie.
Darlene (after answering the phone): Mom, it's Crystal. She wants to know what time you're coming over to help her organize her plates.

Becky (while looking at a dress magazine for Jackie): Hey dad can't you see Aunt Jackie in one of these?
Dan: I don't know babe, I think Aunt Jackie's body might reject a white dress.
Roseanne: Aw, Dan, come on there's nothin' sayin' she can't wear a white dress. I wore white. (Becky, Darlene and Dan look at her and Dan starts to laugh) I don't recall askin' any of you for your opinions.
