    • QUOTES (8)

      • (Jackie walking in the front door of the Conner house referring to Dan and Roseanne whom are sitting on the couch)
        Jackie: Well, look at you two. Straight out of the pages of GQ and Vogue.

      • Salesman: I represent GreaseBlitz, the ultimate cleaning solution.
        Roseanne: Well, I'm pleased to meet you. I represent filth.

      • Darlene: Whens the body gonna start to rot?
        Roseanne: I think I got a few good years left.

      • Darlene: I've never seen a dead body before.
        Roseanne: Well, if that coroner don't get here, you're gonna be eating dinner with one.

      • Roseanne: (on the phone with 9-1-1) Yeah I'll hold!

      • (Roseanne is checking the pulse of the salesman in their kitchen)
        Roseanne: Oh my god.
        Dan: What's wrong?
        Roseanne: I think he's dead is what's wrong.
        Dan: Check it again.
        Roseanne: I know how to count to zero!

      • Becky: Sunday around here is death.
        Darlene: Will dad have a third cup of coffee? (gasps)
        Becky: Will mom get off the sofa by noon?
        Roseanne: Will you get the hell out of my house?

      • (DJ is wearing a werewolf mask)

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The title of this episode is an allusion to the pilot episode, "Life and Stuff."

      • Dan Conner: I ain't touching that refrigerator 'til Willy Loman's out of there.
