    • QUOTES (11)

      • Roseanne: What are you going to do now?
        Bev: Oh, I suppose I'll go back to Molean and rent a little apartment and maybe I'll buy some new furniture and then I'll just sit in a room until it's time to lie in a box.
        Roseanne: Well at least you have a plan.

      • (Everybody moans about Bev's arrival)
        Darlene:Well thats how we feel about her Fisher, but you'd probably like her...she's really old.

      • (On finding Bev a place in Lanford)
        Jackie: Didn't I see a "For Rent" sign go up at the Bowman's house, next door?
        Roseanne: Oh yeah, I just hope they hosed all of the blood off those walls first.

      • (To Bev)
        Jackie: There are certain things that I don't want to hear anymore: skinny, flaky, die a spinster...
        Roseanne: That's just from Mom, right?

      • Bev: I've never felt so unwelcome here!
        Roseanne: Oh, sure you have.

      • Roseanne: Darlene, what are you trying to weasel out of your grandma?
        Darlene: Nothing but love.

      • (On meeting Jackie's younger man)
        Roseanne: Now, when you meet Jackie's boyfriend, be nice. She's real sensitive about the age issue.
        Darlene: O.k.
        Roseanne: Fisher, this is our little Darlene.
        Jackie: Darlene, this is my new boyfriend, Fisher.
        Darlene: Aren't you in my science class?
        Roseanne: Boy, she held out longer than I though she would.

      • (About meeting Jackie's new boyfriend)
        Roseanne: Have you told him any lies that I should know about?
        Jackie: Just that I'm 33.
        Roseanne: Alright.
        Jackie: And that I'm one of those girls from that Robert Palmer video.

      • (To Jackie)
        Roseanne: You have such low self esteem. God, you are an idiot.

      • (Fisher, Jackie's younger boyfriend comes to the Conner's door and Bev answers having never met him...)
        Bev:Darlene, your boyfriend's here!

      • (on the phone)
        Roseanne: Jackie's new boyfriend Fisher is over here. Uh huh. Like a horse.
        (Fisher looks at her.)
        Roseanne: Oh, she was just asking about your appetite.

    • NOTES (2)

      • When Jackie says, "I am not going to subject Fisher to your abuse," she might have been foreshadowing a "Crime and Punishment," 9 episodes later when Fisher physically abuses Jackie.

      • This episode is dedicated, with love, to the memories of
        Frank J. Jimenez and Raymond Hughes
