  • The newlyweds come back...

    Becky and Mrk come bye to say goodbye before the head to mineapolis.Dan is really pissed at becky for leaving and mark for for taking his little girl away from him and pitting him against his daughter.I think he\'s mad at himself that he the last couple months becky and dan\'s relationship has been strained and they have both said a lot of nasty things to each other.Dan is so upset he tears the living room up and will barely talk to Becky and Mark.

    Roseanne is unusally calm and trying to be happy for becky.

    She tells Dan to paste a smile on his face and at least try to be civil to Becky. They arent\' gonna see her for at least a year or so,And Becky is an adult and she married stupid mark and they can\'t do anything else about it.

    Nana Mary, Roseanne\'s goofy Gramma comes by and they have a little party for becky.

    Darlene tries to make everybody laugh by making fun of everything.

    We get to see a whole another side of Roseanne. Yeah, she can be kinda rude and is very hard headed and sarcastic, but when she is really really hurt and upset,she doesn\'t yell, she gets really quiet. I think her and Dan kinda never expected Becky to do this , Maybe Darlene, but not Becky. and I think they both feel bad they can\'t give her the moon.

    We also see how scary Dan can be when he\'s pissed. He holds his tension internally until he reaches a boiling point and explodes like a volcano and when explodes hell hath no fury.

    Roseanne does however tell Mark he better not hurt her little girl, cuz she is his monster in law, i mean mother in law which technically makes him family and he\'s seen how she treats her family:).

  • A Roseanne episode classic gem.....

    10
    Becky returns home after eloping with Mark and moving to Minnesota.



    Becky returns to a heartbroken Dan and Roseanne, but realizing there is nothing they can do about their daughters decision, give their blessing to the marriage.



    Some of the most clever lines where delivered in this episode and the two scenes in which Jackie and Roseanne both give their Great-Grandmother Harris\' wedding rings is a riot.



    But the most heartfelt moment, probably in the entire series, just had to be Roseanne and Becky\'s goodbye at the end of the episode.



    The scene is so believable that it\'s just a fine example of realistic this program tried to present to its audience.



    This was definitely a Roseanne episode classic gem.moreless

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Darlene: (as Becky leaves the Conner house to begin married life with Mark) See ya, bubble butt.
      Becky: Later, Morticia.

      Becky is making an allusion to The Addams Family, a 1960's comedy series centered around the adventures of a happily macabre family. Morticia Addams (actress Carolyn Jones) was the mother in the program. Like Darlene, she had long, dark hair and was always clad in black.

    • Darlene: (to Becky as she leaves to begin married life with Mark) Did you ever know that you're my hero?
      Becky: You're the wind beneath my wings.

      Darlene and Becky are making an allusion to the lyrics from the Bette Midler song, "Wind Beneath My Wings", made popular in the 1988 movie, Beaches.

    • Becky: (returning to the Conner home with Mark after eloping) Hey, is anybody home?
      Darlene: Look, it's Joanie and Chachi!

      Darlene is making an allusion to Joanie Loves Chachi, the 1980's spin-off from the television sit-com, Happy Days, starring Erin Moran and Scott Baio.

    • Roseanne: We got to get a new coffee maker.
      Dan: Aww, Honey, now we're trying to cut back-- Oh, did you cancel the cable?
      Roseanne: (sheepishly) Well...
      Dan: Lu-u-cy!!!

      Dan is making an allusion to the classic 1950's comedy series, I Love Lucy, which starred Desi Arnaz as Ricky Ricardo and Lucille Ball as his irrepressible wife, Lucy. Whenever Ricky suspected his wife of getting into, yet, another predicament, he would drawl out her name as he called for her.

    • Roseanne: Dan, you know if I don't get coffee in the morning, I can get cranky!
      Dan: (offering Roseanne ground coffee, straight out of the can) Here, just a pinch between your cheek and gum.

      Dan is making an allusion to Skoal Chewing Tobacco whose catch phrase is, "Just A Pinch Between Your Cheek And Gum".

    • The title of this episode is an allusion to the James L. Brooks' movie, Terms of Endearment (1983), starring Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger.
