  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Becky: So you aced the driving test, huh?
      Jackie: Oh, yeah. You'd be amazed how courteous people are when they see an 18-wheeler with "Student Driver" written on it.

    • Jackie: I would so tell Mom if I was gay.
      Roseanne: Oh, sure. You couldn't tell her you were going to be a cop, how could you tell her you were gay?
      Jackie: Easy-- it'd kill her.

    • Becky: (quizzing Jackie for her trucking license) What is the importance of proper weight distribution?
      Jackie: To avoid being top-heavy.
      Darlene: You don't have to worry about that, Aunt Jackie.

    • Jerry: Dan, Kathy wants to put up an electric fence.
      Dan: An electric fence won't do you no good Jerry, they're not gonna rob you again.
      Jerry: It's not for the burglars, it's for Roseanne.
      Dan: Electricity won't stop her Jer, I've tried... Not much of a swimmer though, you might wanna build a moat.

    • (To Jackie after Dan has just freaked out about Jackie's question to him regarding what he would do if DJ were gay)

      Roseanne: He's got this thing where he wants DJ to carry on the Conner name. I told him that Becky would probably have a few kids before she was married and they'd be Conners, but that didn't help him any.

    • Roseanne: The only thing I've ever wanted for my kids is that they're happy, and that they're out of the house... And I'll tell you something, happy ain't that important!

    • Kathy: Good? What do we have here? So far we've eliminated Jimmy Mullins and Bob Hope.
      Roseanne: Well, I didn't see the driver, that could have been Bob Hope.

    • Kathy: I'm in Hell...
      Roseanne: No, your just in Lanford. Same zip code though.

    • Jerry: Kathy sort of had this idea that we should start a neighborhood watch.
      Dan: I thought that's what happened, Jerry. You got robbed, and the neighborhood watched.

  • Notes

    • Bob Hope makes a cameo appearence during the ending credits appearing in a line up as a potential burglary suspect in the Bowman's robbery.

  • Allusions

    • The title of this episode alludes to the Christian principle, Love thy neighbor as thyself (Leviticus 19:18).

    • Roseanne is making an allusion to the movie The Stepford Wives when she is teasing Kathy Bowman about becoming one of "us", the Lanford Wives.
