    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: In the episode Be My Baby in season 6, Bev is frantic after Roseanne tells her that Jackie is pregnant. Bev: What would my father say?

        Also, in the season 5 episode, Home for the Holidays Nana Mary says she saw Roseanne and Jackie's dead grandpa, Marvin. We assume from how she said it, that Marvin was Nana Mary's husband, Bev's father, and Roseanne and Jackie's biological grandpa. In this episode, Bev is inquiring to Nana Mary as to her father is. Nana Mary ends up telling her that she doesn't know.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Roseanne puts on a revealing robe that she bought to distract Dan in case he doesn't like the newly remodeled modern home to show Jackie.)

        Darlene: Oh, is this your I'm going to be a grandma look?

      • Nana Mary: Life is a banquet! You gotta learn how to take big bites out of it... Everybody goes down a different road. It doesn't matter what the hell other people think... You know in this life there are more questions than answers.

      • David: Both Jerry and Andy are down for their naps...Hey. this baby thing is gonna be a breeze!
        Darlene: You just remember that when I'm in labor, ripping your throat out.

      • (Roseanne talking to Jerry)
        Roseanne: DJ's funny voice went away, which is a relief to all the doggies in the neighborhood! Oh, and Gramma came out of the closet! Can you say Uh-oh?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The title of this episode is an allusion to the comedy film, Lovers and Other Strangers (1970), starring Bea Arthur.

      • When Roseanne is talking to Jerry, she is talking about how he will get to see his dad (Dan) soon, and how she had so much to tell him, "almost as if some insane woman made it all up!"
        This is a reference to how the show is written about Roseanne's true life, and is also an allusion to how the whole lottery winning and spa trips were just made up.
