Jackie plays happy homemaker with Dan and the kids when Roseanne is called away for three days for a family emergency.
Did You Know?
Roseanne appears only briefly in this episode as a result of a feud with Matt Williams, who helped develop the series. Roseanne had a line of dialogue in the script in which she told Dan "you're my equal in bed, but that's it". Roseanne Barr refused to say the line, as she felt it was something her character would never say. Williams refused to budge, and Barr boycotted her own show as a result. Meanwhile, this episode was so well-received that Williams asked Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman if they'd be willing to continue with the show if Roseanne was to suddenly "quit". Both actors refused and later reported the meeting to Barr. See more
