  • Jackie and Rosie go back to the house they were brought up in

    Quite possibly my favourite Roseanne episode

    The interaction between Roseanne and Jackie is always refreshing and enjoyable.

    Jackie: 'Maybe i just never found the right man and you never found the wrong donut'.

    We get an insight into their turbulent past. I agree with Jackie, that people got hit in the time but it was obviously a very scary and stressful experience for them that they have such a problem with it. It was good to see Becky get a funny side plot without being annoying

    'Gosh Darlene is soo childish (makes a phone call) Oh good he's home (mark)". Who's childish now?

    The David and Darlene relationship begins now and they have great chemistry which is probably why they brought him back. Wonderful episode
