    • Roseanne: (telling Jackie how long the girls have been at odds with each other) No, they've been fighting all week. There's been nothing but trouble ever since Becky dipped her chocolate in Darlene's peanut butter.

      Roseanne is making an allusion to "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups", the top selling candy bar in the United States produced by the Hershey Company. In the 1970's, they were well-known for an ad campaign which involved one person eating chocolate colliding with another eating out of a peanut butter jar.
