    • QUOTES (5)

      • Becky: Hey, I heard that joke you made up about Trudy Burke-- it's real funny!
        Darlene: Thanks, but, the beauty part is it doesn't just have to be about Trudy-- it works for any girl with a moustache.

      • Jackie's therapist: (trying to clarify the purpose of Jackie and Roseanne's therapy appointment) Nobody's here to get anybody, nor are we here to solve the problem in one session.

      • (Jackie breaks down during her therapy session)
        Roseanne:(To the psychiatrist)You better call for backup.

      • (About the tattoo artist Dan wants to hire for the bike shop)
        Dan: So what do you think Art?
        Art: I don't know Dan. I mean financially it's a good idea, but I have to worry about a man who's covered his entire body with tattoos.
        Dan: Do you think he has one on Mr. Winky?
        Art: I...I really don't want to know Dan.

      • Roseanne: (discussing Art, the accountant) Well, he's cute and he's funny.
        Jackie: He looks like the Lucky Charms guy!

        Roseanne: It's NOT my name-- it's Mrs. Kennedy's name!

      • Roseanne: (giving Jackie reasons why she should date Art, her and Dan's accountant) Well, he's cute and he's funny.
        Jackie: He looks like the Lucky Charms guy!

        Jackie is making an allusion to Lucky the Leprechaun, the mascot of the General Foods' cereal, "Lucky Charms".

      • Dan: (after the accountant says Roseanne's breast reduction can be written off as a personal deduction on their income taxes) Dyn-o-mite! (he and Roseanne high-five each other)

        Dan is making an allusion to James "J.J." Evans, a character on the 1970's sit-com, Good Times, whose trademark catchphrase was "Dyn-o-mite!"
