    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When DJ tells Jackie that he needs a ride for his night out and Jackie takes him up on it, DJ tells her to wait while he sees the movie and eats with friends. But later, when Jackie's playing the Monopoly game with herself, she appears alone with Andy. It's never DJ still out and has told Jackie that he doesn't need her to wait after all and to come back for him later or is DJ back home also, but maybe has gone to bed early or is just upstairs? That part is unclear as to DJ's whereabouts during Jackie's solo Monopoly game. Also, Jackie is with Andy in the CODA, but during the episode Roseanne says that Andy was with Fred so that Jackie could have a social life.

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Dan: (eating Jewish related food for the first time) Man that's delicious. Good thing I don't know what it is or I probably couldn't eat it.
        Roseanne: Just like at home.

      • Sol: (handing Roseanne some money) I wanna give a hundred dollars to the baby for college.
        Roseanne: I'm having twins!

      • Becky: (defending Mark) Well, he's not THAT bad. I mean, you always make him sound like he's the dumbest guy on the planet.
        Darlene: Well, name someone dumber.
        Becky: Oh yeah, like I know EVERYONE on the planet!

      • Darlene: (alone with Becky in the Lunch Box, holding a liquor bottle) You ever had this stuff?
        Becky: Peppermint schnapps? Nah, I don't think so.
        Darlene: Huh, what are the odds? (turns the bottle cap and cracks the seal) It's open.

      • Roseanne: (to a Bar Mitzvah guest) You married?
        Sol: Actually, twice. I'm a widower; I think I might be jinxed.
        Roseanne: Man, I'd love for you to meet my mom!

      • Becky: God, we never do this. We never talk to each other like people.
        Darlene: Yeah well, that's moms fault. We'd be friends by now if she let us start drinking when we were kids.

      • Darlene: (to Becky) He's gorgeous, okay? There, I said it. Mark is a gorgeous man. Now, hand me a knife; I must gut myself like a fish.

      • Darlene: So, what did you like better? Schnapps in coffee, schnapps on the cake, or schnapps over ice cream?
        Becky: (drunk and confused) Ok.
        Darlene: Man, you are schnapp faced. What the hell are you doing back there?
        Becky: Just a little meat sculpture. (lifts platter with meat in the shape of Roseanne's head) Guess who this. (imitating Roseanne) Darlene! Becky! My backs itchy right in the center!
        Darlene: God, it's mom. It's mom tar-tar.
        Becky: How long do you think it will take to cook moms head?
        Darlene: 2 and a half hours at 350. I've though about it a lot.

      • Becky: (drinking peppermint schnapps) Not bad! Kinda like a candy cane!
        Darlene: Yep! Every burp is Christmas morning.

      • Becky: Hey check it out! There's a bottle of peppermint schnapps with a card from mom. (reading card) Dear Leon, congratulations on 5 years of sobriety.

      • (at the Lunch Box)
        Darlene: Becky lets get outta here, I'm starting to smell like this place.
        Becky: I gotta at least make it look like I cleaned up.
        Darlene: Just write a note that says, ''I cleaned up'' and put it on that pile of crap.

      • Dan: (to Roseanne in the hotel lobby) I'm starvin'. What do you say we grab a bite at the coffee shop, and then go back up to the room I paid $95.00 for?-- four times more than I paid for this "Robert Hall". (straightening out his suit)

      • Roseanne: (when the band leader at the Bar Mitzvah asks for requests) What about Jesus Christ Superstar?
