  • Trivia

    • This episode marks the last appearance of Gary.

    • After Gary and Jackie break up, as Gary is talking to Dan as he's putting his jacket on downstairs, you can see he has it zipped all the way up to his neck. Then it is unzipped a couple of inches, and then back to all the way up again.

  • Quotes

    • Roseanne: (referring to the boxes of doll heads and doll parts that Darlene and Becky found under D.J.'s bed) He's a boy and boys do things like this...
      Darlene: Alright, but when we do finally have to lock the little wacko in the basement, don't expect me to change his papers.

    • Jackie: Then he went for his gun.
      Nurse: What gun? Your partner said the guy was completely naked, and then you both fell down a flight of stairs.
      Roseanne: You tackled a naked guy?
      Jackie: It was dark, it COULD have been a gun!

    • (Dan is pretending to be hunchbacked and he's wearing a hoodie with the hood up, carrying Jackie's bags)
      Dan: I brought the baggage master. Where do you wish me to put it?
      Roseanne: Just put it any where Igor.
      Dan: Yes master...Perhaps later you'll hit me.
      Roseanne: We'll see.
      Dan: You're far too kind!

    • Darlene: D.J. is doing something weird, and I don't mean regularly weird, I mean weird weird.
      Roseanne: I am so tired of this, everytime he does something you two come down the stairs complaining. I told you before, he doesn't do things the same way you do things, he's a boy. Boys do things differently.
      Darlene: Very different.
      (Darlene shows the doll heads to Roseanne)
      Roseanne: Awwww, it looks like D.J. has a hobbie.
      Becky: Mother! These are my old dolls!
      Dan: Oh God, he's not playing with dolls, is he?
      (Dan looks up to see the beheaded barbie)
      Dan: Oh, good!

  • Allusions

    • Roseanne: Just put it anywhere, Igor...

      Because of Dan's posture and voice, Roseanne is alluding to the character Igor who was Dr. Victor Frankenstein's lowly servant of the same name.
