  • Roseanne undergoes breast reduction surgery.

    The Roseanne series has several very surreal closing scenes, and this one ranks among the best.

    The episode deals with Roseanne's breast reduction surgery; the core episode ends setting up Dan and Roseanne's first intimacy following the surgery, and actually shows Dan fondling Roseanne.

    In the final scene, John Goodman and producer Tom Arnold, Roseanne's real-life husband break character and discuss the closing scene of the core episode. Arnold even calls Goodman "John" on camera.

    It seems that Arnold, certainly reluctant to allow his wife to be fondled, wrote a hand-shake into the script, and that the stage crew had Arnold locked up so as to miss the actual airing. When Goodman lies to Arnold, telling him the hand-shake scene played out, Arnold rejoices that Producer is such a wonderful job.
