    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • (Darlene and Roseanne are arguing over Roseanne wanting to attend Darlene's softball game.)
        Darlene: Well you just better know that when I pitch I spit.
        Roseanne: So. When I dust I spit.

      • (Jackie's considering buying a used washer and dryer)
        Roseanne: You're going to put clothes that touch your body into somebody's filthy machine.
        Jackie: I do it here all the time.
        Roseanne: Yeah, but our filth is family.

      • (Darlene has just tried on a ridiculously spacey dress)
        Becky: What? You DO look like Judy Jetson.

      • Roseanne: You know, Darlene, there's lots of ways of gettin' back at me! Maybe Becky's boyfriend has a little brother!

      • Leon: Another day, another dollar, right ladies?
        Roseanne: Well, I haven't counted my tips yet, but it sounds about right!

      • (Dancing with Dan)
        Dan: If this Barry guy tries to hold you close, tell him you're gonna throw up!
        Darlene: I thought I'd save that for when he wanted to have sex!

    • NOTES (2)

      • In this episode, Roseanne tells Darlene that there are better ways to get back at her than to blow off the desk and mentions that maybe Becky's boyfriend has a little brother. This is foreshadowing the future in that Darlene eventually starts dating David, Mark's younger brother.

      • The role of Jerry, Leon's boyfriend, was originally to have been played by Fred Willard, who later appears as Leon's partner Scott.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Episode title: Dances With Darlene
        Is a reference to the 1990 movie Dances With Wolves starring Kevin Costner.

      • Roseanne jokingly states that the best way for Darlene to torture her would be to see if Mark has a brother. We later found out he does, David. And Darlene does become involved with him.
