  • Dan accidently hits Roseanne in the face with the freezer door, knocking her tooth out.

    8.3
    This was a very funny episode. Especially when Leon was inspecting Roseanne at "The Lunch Box" with Jeffery. The part where Roseanne said "You scratch my back and I won't tell who's been scratching yours" owned. This episode also was pivotal to the David/Darlene relationship. This episode is very important with the sub plot between Darlene and David or else the entire series would be messed up.
