Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Near the end as each person takes a turn jumping from the train, the woman who was taken hostage by the terrorists whom took the tape off Roseanne steps up and is wearing a chicken shirt.

    • In this episode, Roseanne and the family are traveling with Dr. Bakshi, whom they met when visiting the Wentworths in the previous episode, on a trip via train. This truly makes no sense as to why they would be traveling with Dr. Bakshi on a trip, a man whom was simply a guest at the Wentworths studying in the United States on a fellowship from India who they had just met. In the episode it appears that they had accepted an invitation from Dr. Bakshi who presumably was just mentioning they could come along in passing. That explanation still seems rather soft.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Roseanne is the last person left in the rear train car, and sees the train soon going to crash...)
      Roseanne: Oh my God, I can't believe I'm going to die like this. (wailing) That carnival psychic was right!

    • Roseanne: (facing a terrorist) You people are barbarians. In our country we don't need to spill blood to silence women. We do it with diet and fashion and psychiatrists!

    • Roseanne: (after dealing with a terrorist) That will teach you to mess with the mother of all mothers!

    • (The FBI has just rescued Roseanne from a train wreck by having her grab onto a tire swing attached to a helicopter.)
      Roseanne: (as the train explodes below her) Cleanup on aisle four!

    • DJ: I don't care what the neighbors say. You're the best mom in the world.
