    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In the opening scene in the restaurant when Bev opens the can of fake Macadamia nuts, she drops her sacks to the floor when the snake pops out. The bags are on the counter in the next shot.

      • Roseanne says that Bev has had the same hair style for twenty years, but Bev's hairstyle was clearly different in the first two seasons and she didn't change her hairstyle until the fourth season when she cut it short.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Bev: Roseanne! I can't believe what I heard, Antonio tells me you were down at my salon asking questions about my hair!
        Roseanne: Well he didn't tell me nothing!
        Bev: Would you like to see what's going on under here?
        Roseanne: Well, yeah!
        Bev: Alright! I'll show you! Face your future, Roseanne (pulls off her wig revealing a hideous bald head, Roseanne screams disgustedly)
        Dan: Don't worry honey, you won't have to go through this alone. (removes his hair)
        Jackie: I'm with you too, sis! (removes her hair too)

      • Roseanne: (Fred and Jackie enter as Batman and Robin) Holy rented costumes, Batman.
        Jackie: It's the only way he would come. Fred, stop hiding behind the cape. (pulls back his cape revealing his costume)
        Fred: I don't want these guys checking out my utility belt.
        Jackie: (to Roseanne) He thinks a superhero costume makes him look macho.

      • Leon: (with long hair and in a dress) Let's see, all in purple, you're either one of the California Raisins, or Barney.
        Roseanne: And I know who you are, Becky's gym teacher.
        Leon: No, I think you know who I am. Many in Washington think I have too much power and I'm complimented on my many feminine dresses.
        Roseanne: J. Edgar Hoover?

      • Dan: (he and Roseanne enter dressed as Prince and John Wayne) I think some of these guys are looking at me, they can't tell we're a couple. Our costumes should have had a theme.
        Roseanne: They do, I'm Prince and you're the Duke.

      • Roseanne: Fred is gay.
        Jackie: Oh he is not! I'm his wife, I would know.
        Roseanne: Well remember when he came back from Chicago with that new haircut?
        Jackie: Fred likes to try new things, with his hair! ONLY with his hair!
        Roseanne: Okay, well you know that he's only slept with three women so that leaves a lot of free nights and you know that he's always admired your boyish figure.
        Jackie: I don't believe this.
        Roseanne: Didn't he take you to see "That's Entertainment III"?
        (Jackie and Roseanne go to the bedroom, turn on the lights and find Dan and Fred in bed)
        Roseanne: OH MY GOD!
        Fred: Go away, go away!
        Dan: Leave us alone, we are what God made us.

      • Jackie: Fred and I were talking. This year for Halloween, instead of candy, we're gonna give out carrot sticks.
        Roseanne: Yeah, Dan and I are going healthy too. We're giving out filtered cigarettes.

      • Roseanne: Hey Dan, if you're still gay, I could go for a mimosa and some eggs florentine.
        Dan: I don't cook for you... I'm Fred's bitch.

      • Bev: Face it Rosanne, you ain't the cleverest chickster in this family anymore.
        Roseanne: Well, my own family got me this halloween. I don't know what to say. I'm so ashamed and I don't know what to fight back with, oh except.
        (Roseanne blows the house up)

      • Jackie: This looks exactly like mom's hair...it's exactly like mom's hair, Roseanne, this is mom's hair! She wears a wig, do you think she's bald?

      • Jackie: You heard that guy, if mom goes bald, we could go bald to...this is definately mom's hair, look at this.
        (Jackie puts on the wig and puts her hands up in front of her body)
        Jackie (in Bev's voice) "Oh Roseanne! Rosanne, a woman your size should not wear horizontal stripes, you should wear black! Or stay at home! And I don't mean to alarm you but I think your D.J. is retarded!"
