  • The absolute best episode of the whole second season!!

    I love this episode! It is in my top 5 most liked episodes of the whole series! There are several parts of this episode that i thought were really funny. The part i really liked the most was when Roseanne and Jackie are in the living room and they are fighting about Jackie wanting to become a cop and Jackie threatens to break Roseanne's rist; it is really funny. Pretty much the whole episode was really funny and is very enjoyable. It is definitely a Roseanne Series Classic! it is definitely a must-see episode in the whole Roseanne series! It is an awesome episode!!!moreless
