    I just wanted to write a quote but am only a Level 1 and I am unable to do so, so...



    Dan(to Roseanne): No more secrets in this house!...If something happens around here, I wanna know about it!

    Roseanne (to David): David, Dan says we are to have no more secrets in this house (David looks frightened) Dan, I don't know how to tell you this but(sighs)we have a mildew problem.



    David decides he will tell Dan he had been living with Darlene.

    David: I like to think that nothing bad can happen to me as long as I'm honert.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • After telling David to get out, he slams his fist into the wall leaving a noticable hole but later when we see them in the living room, the wall is fixed.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • David: I didn't move in with my mom, I moved in with Darlene in Chicago. And I know it was wrong, and a stupid thing to do and it will never happen again, and I'm sorry. (Dan stands up, frightening him) VERY sorry.
      Dan: (Yelling loudly) You ungrateful little BASTARD!!!

    • Roseanne: (to David whose punishment for secretly living with Darlene in Chicago is to clean the Conner house) I tell you what, why don't you just clean from here...to there. (points randomly)
      David: Where are you pointing?
      Roseanne: The horizon.

    • Fred: (to a very pregnant Jackie) Hey, Jackie.
      Jackie: Fred.
      Fred: How you feeling today?
      Jackie: Lovely, Fred, if I could do a back bend, I'd be a camel.

    • Dan: Sorry I'm late. I stopped at the market to pick up some groceries. I got ice cream, cookies, cake.
      Roseanne: Dan, did it ever occur to you that we shop like our parents are gone for the weekend?

    • David: Ever since you caught me at Darlene's, youve been treating me like a dog.
      Roseanne: The beauty of a working dog is that they don't get put to sleep.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Roseanne: David, when you clean out the refrigerator, don't throw away the moldy buns. Ah, DJ thinks it's "Chia Bread".

      Roseanne is making an allusion to the "Chia Pet", a brand of collectible animal figurines manufactured by Josephs Enterprises, Co. and made popular in the 1960's. "Chia Pets" are grown by applying moistened seeds of chia to the clay, grooved figurine body. The mossy-like, germinating seeds are meant to resemble the "fur" of the animal.

    • The title David vs Goliath is a reference to the biblical account of the shepherd David defeating the 9-foot tall Philistine warrior Goliath. It's likely that Dan is the analogy for Goliath.

    • Jackie refers to herself as "the tin man from the Wizard of Oz," an allusion to the way she feels heartless for pushing Fred out of his child's life.

    • Roseanne admonishes Jackie to stop watching Murphy Brown, a reference to the title character's ill-advised decision to raise a child with no fatherly influence.

    • Dan cites the proficiency order of auto mechanics as "Me, Mark, Goober Pyle," a reference to the town mechanic on The Andy Griffith Show.

    • The closing scene is an allusion to the famous scene of Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate.
