      • Mark: (when David wonders why he won't hang out with him) Well, I'd've done stuff with ya, but you don't like to do guy stuff.
        David: I like to do guy stuff. Who says drawing isn't something guys do?
        Mark: Guys.

      • David: I'm just as much a man as you are.
        Mark: Then how come the only friend you ever had was a girl?
        David: (defensively) Hey, Darlene was a lot more like a guy when I first met her!

      • DJ: Do you think it would be weird if, I like, took a home ec course?
        David: No, I think that's okay.
        DJ: So, you don't think it's wrong for guys to learn to cook and sew and stuff like that?
        David: No, of course not.
        DJ: Thanks! (runs out of the room, shouting) Mark, you're right! (in a loud, sing-song voice) DAVID'S A GIRL! DAVID's A GIRL!

      • Roseanne: (when Dan sides with Fred about paternity rights) Well, Dan, I guess you're not the man I thought you were-- AND, I WAS'T TOO HAPPY WITH THAT ONE!!!

      • Dan: (enlightening Mark) Little something you should know-- women live longer than men, so, in the end, they're never wrong.

      • Jackie: (storming out of the diner and angry over Roseanne's criticism of her relationship issues) I'll make my own decisions, Roseanne. If you can't back me up, then screw you!
        Roseanne: (shouting out the door) No screw you! (slams the door, then opens it to shout again) And now I have to go home and get into a great big fight with Dan over nothing because you're so totally wrong, so screw you double!!! (pauses) I'll call you tomorrow! (slams the door, turns to walk back to the counter and sees a customer staring at her) Shut up!

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Jackie: (after Roseanne tries to convince her that Fred is really a good guy) There are no decent guys in this world. There never has been and there never will be.
        Roseanne: That's not true. There's Dan (pauses) and (pauses) Donahue.

        Roseanne is making an allusion to Phil Donahue, host of The Phil Donahue Show, also known as Donahue, the first tabloid television talk show.

      • Roseanne: Hey, where you been? Did you have to work late or something?
        Dan: (trying to avoid Roseanne)Yeah, a little overtime. And, gee, ya know, when I was pulling up I noticed the chimney's got a crack in it and I got to get to it right away; could take all night-- tape Gladiators for me?

        Dan is making an allusion to the physical game TV game show, American Gladiators, which ran in the late 1980's. The contestants (two male and two female) would be up against the program's cast of athletes in a variety of feats of strength and agility. The challenges were presented in an obstacle course-style format that included a human-size hamster ball and an elevated platform off which opponents would attempt to joust each other.

      • David: There's nothing wrong with talking about your feelings.
        Mark: Hey, look! It's the eighth dwarf, Wimpy!

        Mark is making an allusion to Walt Disney's first, full-length, animated movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).

      • Mark: (to David who's about to explain Mark's sensitive side to Becky) Shut up, Raggedy Ann!

        Mark is making an allusion to the fictional character, Raggedy Ann: a blue and white clad rag doll with red yarn hair created by writer Johnny Gruelle in a series of books he wrote and illustrated for children in the early 1930's.

      • The episode's title is an anti-allusion to the 50's-60's Comedy/Drama Make Room for Daddy.
