Darlene Conner Healy
David Jacob "D.J." Conner
Crystal Anderson Conner
Nitpick: When this episode airs in syndication, several bits are cut, surely for time purposes though the last of the cuts was a 2-second deletion:
1) After telling Charlotte "Okay, that's enough about you", Roseanne continues to say "Come on over here and help us with these cookies" and she sits her down on the couch.
2) Molly walks through Darlene's room calling for her--on TV the cut goes directly from Roseanne and Charlotte to Molly in the bathroom doorway saying to Darlene, "Hey, your mom's calling you."
3) During the party when Annemarie comments on the romance fizzling when they've been with their husbands a while, Roseanne says, "More punch?" and Annemarie says, "You know it."
On a dare, Roseanne takes off her shirt and bra and runs out to the garage to flash Dan. Upon returning to the house, viewers see a completely topless Roseanne from behind. Ann Marie quickly covers her in a blanket, and immediately shuffles her into the kitchen. When Roseanne sits down at the kitchen table, the blanket slips from her shoulder, revealing a bra strap!
Darlene wants a leather jacket, despite her feelings on animal cruelty and vegetarian lifestyle.
Darlene: I'm dying my hair black.
Darlene: Because I know my mom will hate it.
Molly: You know what I do when I want to make my dad freak out? I put on my bright red lipstick.
Darlene: (sarcastically) You rebel.
Ann Marie: (directing a question to Jackie in a game of "Truth or Dare") When was the last time you were felt-up at the movies?
Jackie: It was last night! (gives an embarrassed laugh)
Roseanne: You went to the movies by yourself last night!
Molly: (as Darlene dyes her hair in the bathroom) Hey, what are you doing?
Darlene: Interpretive dance. (kicks her leg up and back as she hangs her head over the sink)
DJ: (pinned by Darlene as she interrogates him about her birthday party) Let me go!
Darlene: Don't make me shave your eyebrows, again!!!
(Referring to her and Arnie)
Nancy: I was looking for poetry and flowers. Instead, I got limericks and edible panties.
Roseanne: Oh, and Darlene, I hate your hair.
Darlene: Oh, Thanks mommy!
Crystal: Oh, Darlene, you look grownup. Look at her, she's got a bossum!
Jackie: (talking about Darlene's birthday) Man, her Sweet Sixteen, amazing, ya know, y-you really ought to do something special for her.
Roseanne: You mean passing her big head through my loins wasn't enough?
Darlene: Okay, my birthday's on Friday, I'm turning sixteen, I'm getting my license, can I have a car?
Darlene: Ah, it was worth a shot.
Dan: Way to commit, Darlene.
Roseanne: (sarcastically) So, did "Fisherman" dump you, yet?
Jackie: No, but thanks for asking.
Molly: (at the Conner door) Hi, I'm Molly Tilden. My family just moved in next door.
Darlene: And, you're telling me this because???
Molly: My dad said the owner gave you guys the keys?
Darlene: Yeah, they're in the kitchen. Come in. Ah, I'm Darlene; this is David. Every house should have one.
David: I'm gonna get a soda.
Darlene: Oh, there's only one left.
David: Do you want ice?
Darlene: Is she planning a surprise birthday party for me?
Darlene: My psycho freak of a mother.
A comment was made about the free birthday meal at Lenny's. Which was a commercial, back in the 90's for the restaurant chain Denny's.
The episode title is an Allusion to the 80's film Pretty in Pink starring Molly Ringwald.
There is an allusion to I Dream of Jeannie. In the scene where Roseanne is disinterested in Jackie's loose meat sandwich, and Dan complains that he's hungry. Roseanne places the completed sandwich in front of him instantly, and Dan thanks "Jeannie."
