In this episode the return of Lecy Goranson as Becky is humorously alluded to twice. The first time by Roseanne, and yet again later, by Darlene. Lecy Goranson left the show in the 5th season for approximately 3 years in order to attend college. Sarah Chalke took over the role at a point in the 6th season in her absence. In this 8th season premiere, Lecy Goranson returns to take back over the role.
(Becky enters D.J.'s old room)
Becky: (referring to a drop cloth) Here Dad. It's all I could find. (audience cheers)
Roseanne: Where in the hell have you been?
Becky: Don't yell at me mother. I was getting this. (referring to the drop cloth she is holding)
Roseanne: Well it took you long enough. Seems like you've been gone for 3 years.
(Becky enters the service porch.)
Darlene: Where the hell have you been?
Becky: (laughs) Why does everyone keep saying that to me?
