        Roseanne: I think you're talented.
        Dan: You're just saying that.

      • Roseanne: Remember that time you played the county fairgrounds? You rocked that place!
        Dan: That was after I left the band.
        Roseanne: Oh. Then who the hell was I making out with after the show?

      • (Jackie runs out the door in disgusted fear after hearing that what David and DJ are searching for are mice)
        Jackie: (Comes back inside after a minute, even more disgusted) Found em.
        DJ: Really? Cool!
        Jackie: No, not cool...Cats. Lots of cats. It's a killing field out there!

      • DJ: Quick, David. You gotta help me. A couple of my mice got loose and if my mom finds out, she's gonna kill me!
        David: (Unsympathetic) If two little mice live and one little boy is killed, then justice has been served.

      • (DJ tells David that "a couple" of mice have gotten loose.)

        David: How many is a "couple" of mice, anyway?
        DJ: 70.

      • (Roseanne accuses Dan of going through a midlife crisis.)

        Dan: You are making no sense.
        Roseanne: Yes I am, Dan. You are the very same age my dad was when he took up with that mistress.
        Dan: (under his breath) Maybe I should check and see if that mistress is still available.

      • (DJ tries to bribe David so that he won't tell Dan and Roseanne that he's making money off of breeding mice for a research lab.)

        David: Are you trying to buy me off?
        DJ: Eh, you know, Darlene's birthday is coming up. You could probably use, you know, a little extra cash.
        David: I don't need it that bad! I mean, I'll just get her something nice and simple with the money that I do have.
        DJ: Yeah. Darlene's pretty understanding. Remember last year when all you did was give her a ride into the country? Now, exactly how long did it take you to walk back from the country?
