This is the first episode where we see the infamous chicken shirt. Becky is wearing the chicken shirt in the bathroom during the dream sequence and is the first person to be seen, on camera, wearing the shirt. Over the course of the show's run, the shirt is worn by various family members, mostly Roseanne. Roseanne thought that the shirt was the ugliest shirt she had ever seen, but she thinks that something that people consider ugly in real life, when perceived on television they see it as art. Additionally, Tom Arnold hated the shirt, and after their divorce, it has been said Roseanne tried to include the shirt in the show as much as possible.
We find out in this episode that Becky was born March 15, 1975.
At numerous times during the trial scene, a production camera is visible in the mirror behind the judge.
Frequently I'm nuts about my children.
Frequently I love my husband Dan.
But when I get overburdened and I need a little...
What's the word I'm looking for?
Dan: Emotional rejuvenescence.
Roseanne: Shut up!
I just need about 10 minutes with no clamor from my clan.
Let 'em leave me alone.
I'm not responsible for everybody.
Why don't they just give me a break?
Let 'em all eat cake.
GET ME UP!!
So when I seek (when I seek)
a tub full of silence, (a tub full of silence)
when I really need to
soak my troubles away, (soak my troubles away)
that's when they come right in and bug me! (Oh, they bug me!)
Emotionally slug me! (Oh, they slug me!)
All I get is "Where's my shirt, Roseanne?"!
A load of laundry,
a load of moppin',
a load of workin',
a load of shoppin'.
"Do it, please." (Please.)
"Do it now!" (Now!)
"Do it, Mom!" (Mom!)
"Do it, Rose!" (Rose!)
"Do it right!" (Right!)
"Do it good!" (Good!)
"Do it fast!" (Do it fast, do it fast!)
Everyone's coming at Rosie,
and Rosie keeps coming in last.
'Ternally grateful we'll be.
Please, please, please, please set her free!
We... love... ROSEANNE!!!
Becky: Mom, are you through in the bathroom yet?
Dan: Honey, I'm through in there.
Darlene: Mom, I did my homework but I still need you to sign here.
D.J.: Mom, can you make me a sandwich?
(Roseanne opens her eyes and sees them)
Roseanne: Oh no! You're alive!
Roseanne: You can't put someone on the stand I already killed!
Jackie: Allegedly killed, your Honor.
Darlene: She killed me!
Jackie: Allegedly, your Honor.
Ms. English: What country comes between Russia and Afghanistan?
Miss England: "Fred and me went to the movies." What's wrong with this sentence?
Darlene: You're too ugly to get a date.
Roseanne: I love my children.
Judge: Then why did you murder them!
Roseanne: Your honor, All I wanted was 10 minutes alone in my own bathroom!
This episode is the same name of the 1983 song by Eurythmics.
When Roseanne is singing and asks "What's the word I'm looking for" and Dan fills in the blank, it is an Allusion to the music in the play Guy's and Dolls Where Adelaine sings and Nathan fills in the blanks when she asks the same question.
