  • I love the old shows brings back my younger days makes me feel good

  • This episode is in my top 5 most favorite episodes of the ninth season. One of the best episodes in the Roseanne series!

    This one particular episode was just about as good as the next episode in this series- "The Miracle". But still this one was around somewhere in my top 5 favorites of the ninth season. I thought it was really good that Roseanne and Dan were able to solve their very big problem with their marrige. It was also good and not good that Darlene had to get sent to the hospital because of her large symptoms of her pregnancy. This episode was very good, but not as good as the next episode-"The Miracle"! But all in all, this was a very very good episode and i really advise you to watch this and the next episode because they are kind of part 1 and part 2.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In this episode we first hear of Lanford's "make-out spot," Lanford Leap. But in the season one episode The Memory Game, Dan tells Roseanne that him and Phyllis Zimmer went to Watchout Hill. Towns typically don't have two known "make-out spots" if any at all. This is also the smaller town of Lanford, Illinois. We also see Dan and Roseanne go to Lanford Leap, with them reflecting on being there as teenagers. I think this could be a continuity error, or it may just be changes reflected in the show from season one to season nine. Perhaps Lanford Leap should have been the first stated "make-out spot," but the show wasn't fully developed yet as that was the seventh episode from the first season.
