  • Trivia

    • This is the last appearance of Booker (George Clooney) until the fourth season's Halloween episode.

    • This is the final episode to feature the factory set.

    • Because they never seemed to get any laughs in any of the factory scenes, Roseanne and her cast jokingly believed the Wellman factory set was built over a haunted Indian burial ground. Later on, when the Conner kids' bedrooms were built over the factory set, Roseanne and the crew thought the laughs came few, again, and joked that their theory was right.

  • Quotes

    • Mr. Faber: (to a table of Roseanne, Jackie, Crystal, and several co-workers) Well are you little ladies enjoying your lunch?
      Roseanne: Well the veal is tre bien, and how is your swordfish, sis?
      Jackie: As usual, the food is to die for, but the ambiance stinks.

    • Mr. Faber: Do we have a deal?
      Roseanne: Yes.
      Mr. Faber: Yes what?
      Roseanne: Yes, we have a deal. (Mr. Faber glares at her) Sir.

    • Becky: Mom, do we have anymore chips?
      Roseanne: They're in the cupboard!
      Becky: Which cupboard?
      Roseanne: The one with the chips!

    • Mr. Faber: I know how business works, sugar. You scratch my back, I scratch yours. Now, I'm more than willing to scratch YOUR back. The question is, are you willing to scratch mine?
      Roseanne: Now, Mrs. Faber isn't going to jump out of the closet dressed as a Dutch girl, is she?

    • Roseanne: If it's one thing I hate to see in a plastic factory, it's bits of plastic lying all over the place!

    • Jackie: It's high time that we thank the woman responsible for our emancipation: my sister, ex-Wellman employee, and a heckuva woman in her own right...what was your name again?
      Roseanne: Sally Field!

    • Jackie: Why is it we work long hours at a job we hate for $8 an hour which we can't even live on, with quotas we can't fill or else we get canned?

    • Roseanne: Are you going to stand there and watch me?
      Faber: Maybe I will, maybe I won't.
      Roseanne: Well that's a big decision, maybe that's why they pay you the big bucks.
