A Bitter Pill To Swallow Spoiler
31 March 2006 | by (Wausau, WI) – See all my reviews

In the episode "A bitter pill to swallow", Roseanne is confronted with a major issue: Becky thinks her relationship with Mark is serious and wants to use birth control pills. Roseanne agrees to take Becky to the doctor, hoping she will change her mind. Meanwhile, to keep watch on him, Dan gives Mark a job fixing motorcycles.

Now for the spoiler part...

When Roseanne tells Becky that it takes a month for the birth control pills to work, Becky confesses to her mom that she and Mark had sex, with a condom, and Roseanne continues on like this is nothing after promising not to tell.

*~*Just a funny note*~* (Not really a spoiler)

During the end credits, Roseanne is telling a seemingly little kid story with the theme of the episode, and at the end, she basically said Mark is dead (not for real), and Dan claps like a little girl.
