    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Roseanne tells her mother that Jackie is pregnant, Bev says "Oh my God, what would her father think? What would MY father think?" But in a later episode, it's pointed out that Bev doesn't know who her father is.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Jackie: I was hoping you'd be pregnant too, so that we could be pregnant together.
        Roseanne: Well, it's not too late. Let's get Fred over here.

      • Dan: By the time this kid graduates, I'm going to be 60.
        Roseanne: Well he'll be one of our kids, Dan, so probably closer to 65 or 70.
        Dan: Oh man, I'll be too old to play ball with him. Is that fair to the kid to grow up without a father? All this just makes me think about dying.
        Roseanne: Well think about whatever you have to, Dan, we're going again in 20 minutes.

      • Dan: These boxers...they're not comfortable.
        Roseanne: Well tough, the doctor on Oprah said that boxers make your equipment work better.
        Dan: I'm a brief man, Rosie.
        Roseanne: Tell me about it.
        Dan: I've been wearing these things for three months and they don't feel natural.
        Roseanne: Well you could always not wear any underwear at all.
        Dan: Oh that's just wrong.

      • Roseanne: (about their difficulty getting pregnant again) I'm starting to think my body don't work no more.
        Dan: Did you think maybe my body's not working anymore?
        Roseanne: Well yeah that's what got me through the first three months.

      • Bev: What if it's a boy?
        Jackie: What?
        Bev: What're you going to name it if it's a boy? Oh I know, after your favorite rock star probably, Bongo.
        Jackie: What's she talking about?
        Roseanne: I think she means Ringo.
        Bev: That's it, that's really jazzy.

      • Jackie: Mom drank while she was pregnant with us!
        Roseanne: Oh Jackie, after a few months in Mom, we probably needed a shot or two!

      • Jackie: Mom, I'm pregnant! I went out with a guy I hardly know, we had sex for hours and I got pregnant... Bev looks shocked.
        ...and I'm not gonna marry him. I'm keeping the baby, and if it's a girl I'm naming it Gidget.

      • (Jackie opens the door to the bathroom when Fred is in there.)
        Jackie: Fred...I'm pregnant, you're the father!
        (Jackie then closes the door and walks away.)
        Fred (on the other side of the door): Wow...Good thing I was already sitting down.
