  • Dan goes ballistic ...

    Lots of good stuff here. Roseanne having fun preparing punishments for Darlene for lying for three months about David living with her in Chicago, Darlene praising her mother when she realizes that she needs her help with Dan, Jackie being annoyed with everyone wanting her gone in her own house... and, best of all, Roseanne's reaction when Dan finds out about David's stay in Chicago thanks to Darlene. So funny!

    John Goodman and Sara Gilbert were phenomenal in the more serious parts of the story, too. And no annoying Nancy, another plus.moreless
  • Dangerously close to soap, but better.

    American sitcoms sometimes feel the need to become very serious and emotional. I think 'Roseanne' is one of the few that actually did it successfully. This is a funny episode, but also strangely moving. And what makes it completely unique is that the lead character doesn't really supply the emotion.

    John Goodman and Sara Gilbert explore the strange relationship between father and (favorite) daughter. Darlene's betrayal leads to an unusual, aggressive outburst from Dan. (I never realized their names are even similar.) Goodman makes the reaction realistic, Gilbert turns the sarcastic teenage daughter into a confused young woman who feels bad about lying to her father. The only annoying scenes are those in which Roseanne shows up. Though her protective behavior come across believable, the jokes seem forced.moreless
  • So much drama in this episode it is awesome! Dan gets very very mad! Which leads to much much drama.

    This episode probably has the most drama in the whole Roseanne series. Especially the part when Dan brings down more blankets for Darlene and finds David in the basement with Darlene when he is not supposed to be, and that creates alot of bad things; Dan kicks things out of the way, he pushes David against a wall, he pushes David really hard across the room and pushes him up against the door. Another bad thing that happens is that Dan also figures out that David was staying over at Jackie's when he was supposed to go back to his mom's. This episode you have to watch if you crave for drama!moreless

    • Roseanne: (seeing that Jackie has made up the couch bed for Darlene and David) Oh, well. Well, isn't this nice? What a great aunt you are making them just so comfortable. Why don't you tack up the bathroom mirror on the ceiling?!?
      Darlene: Because mom. Then when we do it in the bathroom, it wouldn't be able to watch.

    • David: (After Dan agrees to let David move back home) Look, Mr. Conner, there's somethun' I want to say to you. There's somethun' you should know. I really love your daughter. And, you should realize that...when she and I...when we...when we're...when having our...tenderness-
      Dan: (interrupting) David, stop.
      David: Thank you.

    • Roseanne: (insisting Darlene return home and not spend the night with David at Jackie's) You're in big trouble and your punishment is NOT gonna be sex with your boyfriend!
      Darlene: Well, obviously you've never had sex with my boyfriend.

    • David: (climbing through the window) Where've you been? I've been waiting in the park for hours. Get your coat and meet me out front.
      Darlene: I can't get past my dad; there's an F-Troop marathon on.

    • Dan: (catching Darlene staring at him) What? What is it?
      Darlene: Nothing, it's just... (buttering him up) have you been working out lately?
      Dan: Nahh. Well, not on a program.
      Darlene: Well, you are looking pretty buff, there, Dad!

    • (about Darlene)
      Dan: She's never gonna come home, if every time she does, it's miserable!
      Roseanne: Why not, I do!

    • Roseanne: (talking about David who's staying at Jackie's place) David is just fine, don't worry about him. He's a little shook because Aunt Jackie put the moves on him!
      Jackie: I did not!
      Darlene: Who-who'd wanna sleep with some big, old fat lady?!?

    • Jackie: (talking about David) Well, ah, it's kinda funny--I just gave him a big hug 'cuz he said something sweet and, BOOM!-- now he thinks I want him.
      Becky: (laughing) That's so funny!
      Roseanne: I know...
      Becky: I mean, who'd wanna go to bed with some big, old, fat lady?!?

    • Dan: (to Fred) Damn Women! Who the hell do they think they are?!?
      Roseanne: We're sugar and spice and everything nice... so BITE ME!!!

    • Roseanne: (setting the record straight with Dan as to what really happened on their second date together) My mom was in Indiana. There was no fight. I just set the whole thing up so that you would be able to take advantage of me (changes her voice to a fake whimper) in my time of need.
      Dan: So, you've been lying to me from the beginning.
      Roseanne: Face it, Dan, I seduced you. And, Darlene may very well have seduced David, okay? So, you can't keep blaming David for the whole thing. Darlene had sex because she wanted to have sex.
      Dan: (walking out the door) I gotta go to work.
      Roseanne: (shouting after him) The fact that I had my nightgown in my purse should've tipped you off!

    • Roseanne: (discussing Darlene with Dan) Have you seen the kind of control she has over David?... I mean, David isn't even his real name-- she just made that up!
