Roseanne later learns that David was planning to run away, so she met his mother, who came off as mean and drunk. She treated David poorly, forcing Roseanne to change her mind and allow David to move in with them. Written by

[shouting at David
You think you can live without me? You think you could survive for two minutes out there in that world, unless I was taking care of you? You are worthless! You are a worthless little *bastard*!
Okay, I've changed my mind. David, you can come live with us if you want to.
Are you trying to steal my kid?
Oh, this has nothing to do with stealing anything. Whether he runs away, or comes and lives at my place, he is *not* gonna stay here with *you*.
