Kathy: Goodnight, Roseanne.
Roseanne (after she closes the door): Goodnight, Needle Butt.

Kathy (to Roseanne): Are you saying you're a better mother because you have three children?
Roseanne (sarcastic): Yeah! Three to one! I win!

Jackie (about Kathy): Maybe she was a little uptight.
Roseanne: A little uptight? Hey man, you couldn't drag a needle out of her butt with a tractor!

Roseanne (to Darlene): You're doing the dishes or you don't get your allowance this week.
Darlene: Deal, thanks.
