  • one of the better season 9 episodes.

    one of the better season 9 episodes.



    i thought this episode was one of the better of season 9.i liked this episode for lots of different reasons.the main reason is because in the 9 season they kind of lost the true meaning of the show which was the family and that family means everything.and they showed that in this episode(offcoure until the end when jackie finds out that dan cheated on roseanne.but before that they showed what the true meaning of christmas was which is family and being there for each other.i think this was the 2nd best episode in season 9.offcourse the 1st one was the miracle.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Oops - After Roseanne notes the Christmas tree is new, there is clearly silver "tinsel" already hanging from the tree while Dan, Mark and DJ are trying to get it through the front door.

    • Look closely: when everybody is in the living room eating Christmas cookies, they are actually eating Hanukkah cookies--"Star of David" cut-out cookies.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (David's reading to Jerry and Andy)
      David: While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.
      (Dan, D.J. and Mark try to get the tree through the front door)
      Dan: (to David) Hey sugar plum! Get over here!

    • (opening Christmas presents)
      David: Painting supplies!
      D.J.: Look at all these video games!
      Mark: Snake skin boots!
      Darlene: If you hold them up to your ears, they rattle.

    • Dan: (In response to David's request for the instructions for building a tricycle) David, men don't read instructions. We eyeball it, think logically, then wing it.

    • Darlene: I'm glad you're home, I want you to know that.
      Dan: Thanks.
      Darlene: I need to borrow your coat, mine doesn't fit anymore and as hard as it is to believe, I've outgrown Mom's. Scary.

      Jackie: We're missing a wise man.
      (Roseanne looks around and picks up a Power Ranger action figure)
