  • Roseanne injures her back. The Doctor recommends breast reduction surgery.

    9.5
    A well-written comedy with plenty of laugh lines. There are references both to the self-cleaning house of The Jetsons and the Fonz of Happy Days. Bev comes to town, and trumps Dan's paarenting efforts twice.

    Several character stereotypes were reinforced: the self-absorbed side of Becky as she bargains for a car, as well as her behind-the-times side as shown when meeting Mark; the interfering side of grandmother Bev referenced above; the separation side of DJ, who blows out the birthday cake candles mid-song and disappears; and the stubborn side of Dan.

    On the more serious side, this episode set up a comedy/didactic episode on breast reduction surgery.
