Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • One of the greatest episodes!

    I remember watching this episode when it originally aired and I laughed my butt off. I still crack up every time I see it in reruns. The entire scene in the bathroom after they smoke the pot is simply brilliant! At first it only seems like Rosanne and Dan are alone in this scene...fighting over the pudding pop, which is hillarious, and Dan telling Rosanne how much he loves her, but then you hear Jackie proclaim "nobody loves me" and Rosanne slides open that shower curtain and there's Jackie laying in the tub holding her "ganja".... I almost pee my pants everytime!moreless
  • Sidenote: Jackie is unknowingly pregnant while stoned in the bathtub, overwhelmed to the point of wondering if she is actually shrinking and in the sink.

    In a slightly previous episode, Jackie has her one-night stand with Fred, and in the episode aired after "Stash From the Past," we learn this one-night stand resulted in Jackie and Fred accidentally conceiving a child. Therefore, a prudent Roseanne watcher would note Jackie is unknowingly pregnant while stoned out of her mind, if you consider the previous and subsequent episodes in this season 6. Make no mistake - this is a definitive series classic and worthy of the #1 spot of top episodes, simply for that hilarious bathroom scene. Perfection achieved.moreless
  • Classic For The Bathroom Scene

    I know this is often regarded as one of the best epsidoes of Roseanne and I agree. But outside of the 'Bathroom Scene', this is really an average episode. It's just that the one scene is so hysterical, so funny, so great that it's easy to overlook the rest.

    On the off chance that you've never seen this episode and you tune in and find yourself wondering what the big deal is - just stick with it. You'll be on the floor in stitches.moreless
  • My favorite episode.

    This episode is my absolute favorite out of the entire series. The writing is exceptional and leaves a smile on your face long after you have watched the episode. The scene where Roseanne, Dan and Jackie are in the bathroom is one of the funniest things I have ever watched on TV in my life. This episode will continue to make me laugh for years to come.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Although Jackie doesn't announce she is pregnant until the next episode, Laurie Metcalf looks very pregnant throughout this episode. This is because at the time this episode aired, she was pregnant with her second child, Will Theron Roth.

    • Roseanne has made many comments in past episodes that she was skinny before the kids were born. But in this episode when she gets out her "Hippie clothes" from that time, the clothes are not too small on her.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jackie: (after walking in on Roseanne and Dan who had decided to use Roseanne's old pot Roseanne found) What the hell are you doing? You're rolling a joint after yelling at David for bringing pot in the house. And you're using the coffee table Mom gave you? And you're doing it all wrong, gimme that!

    • (Roseanne is going through a box of old things feeling "nostalgic.")
      Dan: (picking up and reading a button) Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
      Roseanne: Yeah. Who knew it was going to be such a long, bad day.

    • David: I was just wondering if you left anything behind in your room, your socks, your hairbrush, your marijuana.
      Darlene: What're you talking about? I don't smoke pot. It dulls my hatred.
      David: I know you've tried it.
      Darlene: Yeah well I've always tried sex with you, that doesn't mean I'm addicted.
      David: Well if it's not yours, then whose is it?
      Darlene: Way to go, Becky.
      David: Okay then, I'll just tell your mother I said it was mine because I thought it was yours.
      Darlene: And then she'll say 'Well if you think it's hers then she must be doing pot'.
      David: No, Mrs. Connor.
      Darlene: 'Oh what, she just sells it? That's it, she's dead, when I'm through with her, she's going to need drugs to stop the pain.'
      David: Okay it's mine.
      Darlene: Very good, you know the first step is admitting you have a problem.

    • Jackie: (Coaching Roseanne in preparing for her confrontation with David)
      Remember, pot can lead to other drugs, and theft, and there's a reason they call it dope.

    • Roseanne: Look what I found while cleaning David's room.
      Jackie: Oh gee, that looks like pot. (inhales) Yep, that's pot, Mary Jane, stick, weed, dope, anyway you say it, it's marijuana.

    • Dan: I told you not to play on the roof!
      D.J.: I wasn't on the roof.
      Roseanne: Dan, I was the one that told him he could play on the roof, I figured, you know, it's safer than the streets.

    • (Roseanne, Dan and Jackie are in the bathroom after having smoked pot)
      Roseanne: Do you feel anything?
      Dan: Maybe this stuff is too old.
      Roseanne: Are there anymore of those pudding pops?
      Dan: No, this is the last one and it's mine.
      Roseanne: Well Dan, I want it. And I swear to God I'll rip your entire arm off to get it.
      Dan: That would suck. (gives roseanne pudding pop)
      Dan: Roseanne? You are the most beautiful, wonderful, ya know thing in the world. I really really love you.
      Roseanne: (sits novice for a second) What?
      Dan: Man, I thought this stuff would make me feel younger, and all I feel is old, tired and hungry.
      Roseanne: Man! Maybe this is how we got fat!
      Jackie: Nobody loves me.
      Roseanne: (freaked out, opens shower curtain to find Jackie laying in the tub) Jackie, I thought you went home.
      Jackie: What do you mean? I've got nothing. No Boyfriend. No family. No life. It's just me. Just me and my ganja.
      Roseanne and Dan: (laughing hysterically)
      Dan: (jumps up) What was that!?
      Roseanne: (still laughing) You're all paranoid, Dan! (pause) Oooh, BIRDS BIRDS BIRDS! (laughing) Don't ya hate that when your stoned?
      Dan: I don't like it anytime (shakes)
      Dan: Now don't tell me you didn't hear that!
      Jackie: (wide-eyed) Is this the sink am I shrinking?
      DJ: (knocking on door) Mom?
      Jackie: THE JIG IS UP! (closes shower curtain)
      Dan: Deeeeeejay, Deeeejay. Did you ever notice how weird that sounds?
      Roseanne: Now, remember Dan, maintain. (stumples over to door) (high shrill voice)WHAT YOU WANT DJ!? God, you're right!
      DJ: I forgot my sleeping bag, do you know where it is?
      Roseanne: Uh... its out in the back, past the yard, ya know in that building where your dad always is with his (high shrill voice) TOOLS AND THE CAR?
      DJ: Thanks, Mom
      Roseanne: I am like the worst mother on the face of the earth.
      Dan: No you're not.
      Roseanne: Yes Dan I am. I don't know where I sent my kid. Well say he falls down and he breaks one of his organs and he needs a transplant from me but I can't give him any of my organs cuz they're all full of pot.
      Dan: That's not going to happen.
      Roseanne: I cant- no. I just couldn't handle any kind of crisis.
      Dan: Well maybe I could.
      Roseanne: No.
      Dan: I can't believe we used to enjoy this stuff.
      Roseanne: Well, it was a long time ago, there was a war going on! Everything was just alot more fun!
      Dan: Fine, we'll just flush the rest of this down the toilet. Now let's go lie down.
      Roseanne: (looking around) What?
      (Dan and Roseanne walk into bedroom)
      Jackie: (still in shower) Guys, I don't think this stuff is working.

  • NOTES (1)

    • During the bathroom scene, after Jackie says she's shrinking, she closes the shower curtain. During Dan and Roseanne's conversation for the rest of the scene, the top and edge of the shower curtain moves back and forth between shots. There seems little reason why Laurie Metcalf should have stayed on the set after her "shrinking" line. Her final line was easily dubbed.


    • Roseanne: You're just paranoid, Dan...oooooohhhh, Birds, birds, birds!

      When Roseanne mocks Dan for being paranoid while high, she does an imitation of Dennis Hopper from the 1969 movie, "Easy Rider." Dan adds to the imitation by kicking at an imaginary critter, as did Peter Fonda in the movie, after their characters got stoned on marijuana.
