Darlene Conner Healy
David Jacob "D.J." Conner
Rebecca "Becky" Conner Healy
Roseanne says she was 11 when she got her period. But in the episode where they find out DJ's having erections, she tells him the story of her first period when she was 13.
If the Conners live on 714 Delaware St. (we find this out later in the series), why is this episode titled "Nightmare on Oak Street?"
When Roseanne first goes into Darlene's bedroom to get her back to sleep, you can see through the window that it is bright as if it were day.
Becky: I wonder what people did before television.
Roseanne: They made dolls out of corn cobs and stared at fire.
(Remembering how their mother dealt with their first periods)
Jackie: What about when she brought home pamphlets from the Red Cross?
Roseanne: For two weeks I thought what I had was a natural disaster.
Jackie: The poor kid's just been sentenced to forty-five years of monthly inconvenience.
Roseanne: Gee Jackie, I hope I can find a way to pass that enlightened wisdom on to my daughter.
Jackie: You will, just tell her about all those famous athletic women types, and how they all get their periods too.
Darlene: Will everybody stop talking about nightmares? I didn't have a nightmare!
Roseanne: If you didn't have a nightmare, then why'd you have trouble goin' to sleep?
Dan: Were you worried about your basketball game?
Darlene: No, I wasn't worried about my basketball game.
Roseanne: Did you screw up in history again Darlene?
Darlene: No I didn't screw up in history again.
Roseanne: Well then, what is the matter?
Darlene: I got my period! Okay?
Dan: I had this recurring dream in broad daylight. I had this mug with a little airplane design on it, and every time I'd drink from it, the engine would start up, and it would get closer, and I swear this is true, the propeller went up my nose.
Roseanne: You're scary.
Jackie: So what's going on?
Roseanne: Darlene got her period last night.
Jackie: No kidding? She's only 11.
Roseanne: I was 11 when I got my period.
Jackie: Yeah but you were already wearing a D-cup.
Roseanne: Yeah, two of them.
The episode title Nightmare on Oak Street is a take off on the horror film Nightmare On Elm Street.
