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 »


In this episode, DJ and Becky are eating breakfast at the table. Becky splashes a bowl of cereal into DJ's face and it spills all over his clothes. When Jackie gets clothes for DJ to wear from the laundry room, he gets stuck in his shirt when he is putting it on. DJ walks back and forth from the laundry room to the kitchen twice, and if his you look at his pants they change in each shot. One minute they are dark blue covered in cereal, and in the next shot they are lighter blue almost dry and clean. Then they go back to dark blue again See more »
