Summary[edit | edit source]

Dan unexpectedly brings home a nice surprise of $500.00. After seeing the money, Roseanne, Dan, and the kids ponder ideas of how they will spend their newfound wealth. During a night of bills, Roseanne & Dan agree that for once they could use the money practically and finally be debt free for awhile.

Agreeing that using the money for practical purposes is the key, the two go to work yet return home with gifts using the newfound money. Roseanne returns home with submission perfume and Dan returns home with a new brass captain's bell. After secretly hiding their purchases, Dan discovers Roseanne's perfume and DJ blows Dan's cover by ringing his newly purchased bell.
