      • (Mark is confused why Becky and Joe were supposedly holding hands)
        Roseanne: Why don't you go stick your head in the freezer Mark. It's going bad.

      • Darlene: (when DJ assumes Roseanne and Dan still have control over her) Ho, ho, DJ. DJ, young, foolish DJ. You see, Roseanne and Dan are like a VCR: they just flash zero until you program them.

      • Jackie: Hey, Roseanne, did I leave Andy's little hat over here?
        Roseanne: Oh, yeah, well, I'll have to buy you a new one, ya see, cuz I ran out of coffee filters.

      • Roseanne: (determining why Dan is siding with Fred and not Jackie) You were in a very small space with another man and you breathed all those MAN fumes, and then, the very tiny part of your brain that can think for itself DISSOLVED!

      • Roseanne: (when Jackie is having second thoughts about going back with Fred) Well, come on, Jackie, I went to a lot of trouble catching him-- now, you just gotta clean and cook him.

      • Roseanne: (making an excuse for abruptly having to leave Jackie's house) Ah, well, I'd better go-- cuz, ah, Darlene hung DJ up by his feet and I wanna get some film.

      • DJ: (seriously) Dad, we need to talk.
        Dan: (not looking up from his newspaper) That's what I use to think, but, it turns out, son, we don't.

      • Roseanne: (after DJ tries to swindle them out of some money) Oh, gee, Dan, they're so adorable before the horns and pointy tail grow in.

      • Dan: (To Fred, about being angry) Just bury that anger down deep in the pit of your stomach, until it turns into a hard ball, then you put food on it.

      • Roseanne: (after Jackie tells her she went out dancing with a man other than Fred) Well, dancin's not a sin!, Didn't you see Footloose?

      • Jackie: (obviously depressed) I'm right where I belong, living on Failure street, a block left of Pathetic, My zip code? All zero's.

      • Dan: (after tricking Darlene out of some money with DJ's help) She fell into our trap!
        Roseanne: Yeah, she must be slipping.
        DJ: Okay, it worked. I did everything you said, now where's my ten bucks?
        Dan: He fell right into our trap!
        Roseanne: Yeah, he must be slipping.
        DJ: What a rip!
        Roseanne: And YOU wanted smart kids.

      • Darlene: (thinking she's manipulated Dan and Roseanne in regards to her college allowance) Like taking candy from two really big babies who REALLY like candy!
        DJ: 'cept for one thing.
        Darlene: What?
        DJ: I lied. They were never gonna cut your money at all!

      • Darlene: (To DJ about her allowance being cut) That baby's not gonna cost fifty dollars a month! I mean, it's gonna get all its food free from "Elsie" in there!

      • Dan: I'm not afraid of my wife.
        Fred: Oh, have you remarried?

      • Jackie: (tabulating the benefits of being separated from Fred to Roseanne) Well, I'm sleeping in the middle of the bed, I'm not shaving my legs, and I get to put pretty clothes on Andy again. And, if he turns out gay, we don't care because I'll march in one of those parades with him.
