Dan finally returns home after a long stay in California with his ill mother. He, Roseanne, and the entire family realize how much they have to be thankful for as one of the oddest and most trying years of their lives comes to an end. The only problem is how distant and uncomfortable Dan seems to be around Roseanne. Written by

Roseanne says that she's hardly seen Fred "since he moved in with that D.A. chick with them two kids." This is an inside-joke. Michael O'Keefe
, who played Fred, left this series to star on the short-lived Life's Work
(1996), in which his character was married to a lawyer. "Life's Work" immediately followed 'Roseanne' on ABC's Tuesday night schedule. See more
