  • Roseanne at her best

    This by far the best in episode in the entire series. When Roseanne asks Dan \"Do you think I\'m pretty?\" I just fall out. Then later when she gives it in her speech at the party that she never told anyone how he cried and cried during Old Yeller. It is absolutely the funniest moment in TV history. Watch this episode every time you can.
  • Dan vs. Roseanne on PMS, who will be the victor.

    Probably the funniest episode in the entire series of Roseanne. I always love the moment when the show comes on with the silent opening of the fan, I realize it is the PMS episode and I stop whatever I am doing to watch.

    I love the scenes where the family have to watch Dan confront Roseanne. I especially love the scene with Jackie at the party when Dan thinks his party is almost over, and she turns to him and says, \"there\'s cake...\"

    John Goodman and Roseanne are so amazingly funny. John Goodman must have had a great time playing of the PMS stricken Roseanne. And Roseanne must have had a blast switching from one mood to another. This episode is my favorite in the series, and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as well.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Dan: (thinking) Hair. Hair's different, do I like it? What if she doesn't like it? Better do something quick before...
      Roseanne: Dan? Don't you like my hair?
      Dan: (thinking) Too late. (out loud) It's great!
      Roseanne: I don't believe you, Dan. I go out and get my hair done to make myself a little more attractive and you don't even notice? It's not like I did this for myself, its on top of my head! I can't even see it.

    • Jackie: Oh, come on, Dan you don't know that Roseanne's got PMS.
      Roseanne: Dan. Do I look pretty?
      Jackie: Oh my god! Run! Run, Dan! (runs away)

    • (Roseanne kicking out the stripper dressed as a bellhop that Arnie hired as a present to Dan for the surprise party)
      Roseanne: You're the reason why there'll never be a woman president!

    • Dan: I think I'll just go back into the bedroom, read the paper, and not talk to a soul. Is that okay with you, Roseanne?
      Roseanne (thinking): God, he gets so damn moody! Happens every month, too. Men!

    • Roseanne: (giving a toast) So here's to you, Dan Conner, my husband, my friend, my soulmate, my rock.
      Dan: (thinking) Dear God, let this end.
      Roseanne: A great big rock that does nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV.
      Dan: (thinking) That's it. God's a woman!
      Roseanne: Oh, you know, once in awhile it'll ask for a beer, and I'll have to go in the kitchen and get it, because after all, it is just a rock. And a rock can't just tip itself over and roll over to the refrigerator now can it? So I have to get the beer for it. Yeah. A big TV-watching beer-drinking rock.

    • Crystal: Just before my time of the month, when my hormones start acting up, I'm good for one solid day of pure mean.
      Jackie: You?
      Crystal: Oh, yeah. One time I went around and busted a streetlight for every man who ever broke my heart.
      Dan: I remember, the great blackout of '84.

    • Roseanne: (on the phone) This whole party thing seemed a lot better last week. Whose stupid idea was this anyway? Well, I know it was, Crystal, but you don't have to throw it back in my face!

    • Dan: Do I have to spell it our for you people? P-M-S!
      DJ: Oh my God! (makes to move out of chair, but instead falls over)

    • (referring to Roseanne's PMS)
      Dan: It's like a rollercoaster ride with Sybil at the switch.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Dan: It's like a roller coaster ride with Sybil at the switch.

      "Sybil" is a 1976 TV movie based on a true story about a woman (real name Shirley Ardell Mason) who created at least 13 different personalities as a result of her horrible upbringing.

    • When Dan says, "The horror . . . the horror...," he was quoting the movie "Apocalypse Now" (inspired by the novel Heart Of Darkness). These were the dying words of Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando).
