  • Not happy about how Roseanne is ending!

    The worst episode so far!!! Nothing from what this serie use to be...and not only this episode...this season (last one) is just a big bad joke...I use to laugh so much with this show untill I got to this season...they should have stopped at season 8...Sorry to say this, but is the truth!
  • Great Episode

    I really, really liked this episode, for a few reasons, but the main reason being that Roseanne and Darelene were hilarious in this episode--Roseanne portraying the Devil, to whom her grandchild was to be given, and Darlene, mother of the spawn of Satan. I love the fact that the shirt with the moon appeared everywhere, confusing and bewildering Roseanne. I also loved her outfit, the dress that let it all (and I do mean, all) hang out. I also liked the Absolutely Fabulous gals dropping in. I wished Dan and DJ and Becky were in the episode, as well, but hey, what can you do?

    All in all, a really funny, well-written episode, that I wish would be on more often.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The famous chicken shirt worn by various family members (mostly Roseanne) over the course of the show Roseanne, is seen in this episode in a picture frame. Roseanne studies it with a perplexed expression on her face during her drunk fog sequence.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (during Roseanne's drunk fog sequence, a variant of the horror movie, Rosemary's Baby. Roseanne demands to speak to the devil who appears and looks just like her.)
      Roseanne: I don't get it. Are you the devil?
      the devil's advocate: No Roseanne, I'm just his advocate.
      Roseanne: But you look exactly like me.
      the devil's advocate: I take on whatever form your subconscious chooses to give me. I almost came as a hamburger.

    • Darlene: Mom, is this normal? I mean, (stands up and everyone sees her huge stomach) I'm so big and I'm only eight weeks pregnant.
      Roseanne: I don't know how to tell you this, but that's not normal for eight years pregnant.

    • Roseanne: Darlene, what are you eating?
      Darlene: Raw chicken gibblets. (scoops gibblets out of bowl with hands)
      Roseanne: Darlene, you're not an animal. Use a fork!

    • (Roseanne's dress and hair are indentical to Fran Drescher's ensemble she wore to the 1996 Emmy's)
      Roseanne: Hey look, I'm The Nanny!

    • Jackie: No Roseanne, don't do Kathy Lee! Not Kathy Lee! Kathy Lee made little children work in sweatshirts in the heat!
      Roseanne: Hey hey hey...I'm not gonna listen to one more bad thing about Kathy Lee Gifford! Ok what with all the things she's got to do between her show, her Christmas special, all the things she does for little Cody plus the daughter-- whatever the hell her name is--you really think she has time to be on a cruise ship as well as overseeing things in some Honduras sweat shop at the very same time? My god, the woman in only human!
