  • Roseanne's Station Wagon is hit by a luxury car driven by the rich Mrs. Wellman.

    10
    I think this is my all time favorite funny episode of Roseanne. Roseanne's station wagon is hit by a luxury car driven by the rich Mrs.Wellman. The best part is when a heavily medicated Roseanne (due to whiplash from the accident) talks to the little porcelain dog, Ch-Chi, she keeps on her mantle. What a riot! I laugh out loud everytime I see it! Roseanne's comic genius really shines. And, the expressions on her kids' faces throughout the scene are priceless! Finally, Mrs. Wellman comes, not to see how Roseanne is fairing, but, to buy her way out of the accident. Viewers can truly feel Roseanne's disappointment (even though the Conners decide to keep the check!). Mrs. Wellman continually mispronounces Roseanne's name by referring to her as "Roxanne". But Roseanne heads her off at the pass by calling Dan "Don". Mrs. Wellman then calls Dan "Dan". The laughs just keep on coming!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The girls ask for a VCR although in the earlier episode Somebody Stole My Gal they are installing a VCR.


      This apparent goof might be solvable by noting that the VCR they were installing in the earlier episode was Jackie's. She brought it to the Conner's while she was away at Police training so they could record her soaps. If we assume that when she was done with training she took her VCR back home, the paradox goes away.

    • The girls ask for a VCR although in the earlier episode Somebody Stole My Gal they are installing a VCR.

    • When Jackie is serving the kids dinner a magnet with the number 44 can be seen on the refrigerator and this was the 44th episode.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Roseanne: (A little 'loopy' on muscle relaxers, bumps into Becky) BOOOM! (giggles hysterically)

    • Mrs. Wellman: You're Roxanne's sister, Janet!
      Jackie: It's Jackie.
      Mrs. Wellman: (referring to her dog) Oh, no, it's Jacques, but people are always mispronouncing his name.
      Jackie: You know what's an easy word to pronounce, Mrs. Wellman? Cop.

    • Roseanne: You know my husband, Don? (whispers to Dan) Just go with it.
      Mrs. Wellman: Of course! It's nice to see you, Dan!

    • Jackie: Well I hope that we have all learned a very very important lesson here today. That is exactly the reason why we always wear (Jackie, Becky, Darlene, and D.J. in unison) our seat belts.
      Ya know, cops got a saying. You never pull a dead man out of a seat belt.
      Darlene: What do you just leave him there?
      Jackie: Some cops do. I don't.

    • Jackie: (clad in police uniform at the beauty salon trying to find out information about Roseanne's case) Ya know Crystal, if I wanted to I could give you a summons.
      Crystal: Well if I wanted to, I could give you a makeover.
      Jackie: Why, do you think I need a makeover?

    • Roseanne: I finally get some time off and I can't do a damned thing. The kids are in there eating canned spaghetti.
      Dan: Hey, they like canned spaghetti.
      Roseanne: Well not for breakfast.

    • {Roseanne's acting goofy after being put on muscle relaxers}
      Darlene: Mom, did you fly through the windshield or something?
      Roseanne: No but I'd like to try that someday.

    • Dan: How ya feelin'?
      Roseanne: How do I look?
      Dan: How ya feelin'?
