    This episode was definitely one of the funny episodes and one of my favorite episodes of season five. I love Darlene and she was hilarious as always in this episode. Roseanne's cousin Ronnie was awesome. She made me laugh when she was going through the family pictures when Darlene asked her about "the little boy with the shirt above his head" and Jackie goes "that was me" haha it made me laugh out loud . I also loved the scene in the living room when Jackie tries to include herself when she started to feel left out. I especially loved the ending credits where Darlene and David were questioned by the officer for being in the car and all they were doing were filling up applications because Roseanne didn't want her to. Haha overall a great episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Roseanne: (confronting her cousin, Ronnie, about why she wasn't asked to be in her wedding) I mean, I only knew Nancy for one year, and she made me one of her bridesmaids.
      Nancy: Yeah, but I don't have many friends.

    • Darlene: (looking at old, family photographs) Who's the little boy pulling the shirt up over his head?
      Ronnie: That's Jackie.
      Jackie: (bitterly) You said we were all gonna do it.
      Ronnie: (to Roseanne) Do you still have the picture of her doing the panty-less cartwheel?

    • (Officer comes over to Darlene and David sitting in the car and peaks in the window with a flashlight)
      Officer: Roll it down.
      David: (Rolls down window)Yes, officer?
      Officer: (Suspicious) What are you kids doing in there?
      David: Filling out our applications to college.
      Darlene: My mom won't let us do it in the house.

    • Roseanne: I think my problem is that I could never really overcome my basic nurturing instinct. (Darlene begins to sit in a chair) Get the hell outta my chair!

    • Jackie: Brace yourself Roseanne. Mom just called, someone's coming here. Someone you don't like.
      Roseanne: That could be anybody.

    • Ronnie:Ooohhh, we all know you're just jealous because I've made something of myself.
      Roseanne: Yeah, an ASS!

    • Ronnie: The police were chasing her.
      Darlene: The police were chasing you?
      Ronnie: Why didn't you ever tell her any of this?
      Roseanne: I was afraid it'd bring us closer together.

    • Roseanne: I was wrong to hate you all these years for not letting me be a bridesmaid at your wedding when there's a perfectly good reason to hate you...you're a bitch!
      Ronnie: Please, I bow down to the queen of all bitches.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Roseanne: (explaining to her cousin, Ronnie, why she's held a grudge against her) You-you were suppose to go to New York, and, then, I was suppose to follow, and you were gonna get an apartment, and I was gonna come live with you, and, ya know, it was gonna be like That Girl.

      Roseanne is making an allusion to That Girl, a 1960's television sit-com about a talented, young women named Ann Marie who moves to Manhattan and struggles to make a career as an actress.

    • DJ: (at the Lunch Box talking to his friend about Jackie) She's new.
      Jordan: Anything's better than having your mother here.
      Roseanne: Hey, DJ. Hey, Jordan.
      Jordan: (surprised to see Roseanne walk in the door) Ohh, Mrs. Conner, you look especially lovely, today!

      Jordan's words to Roseanne are an allusion to Eddie Haskell, a character on the all-American 1950's sit-com, Leave It To Beaver. Eddie was a trouble-making boy who always managed to avoid getting caught. Jordan's overly-courteous greeting to Roseanne mirrors the kind of thing Eddie would have said to soften up an adult.

    • Roseanne mentions how Roni stole her boyfriend Blake from her. This is a reference to Joan Collins' husband Blake on Dynasty played by John Forsythe.
