      Roseanne: Oh my God! So in your mind, it's already over?
      Becky: No...I don't know. Hey, you're the one who got me goin' to change my life.
      Roseanne: Yeah, but I didn't mean that you should throw out all these other parts of your life just because you get a new idea, Becky. You've gotta give Mark a chance, at least. I mean, marriage is a big deal ya know? Mark really loves you. You don't wanna mess this up.
