Storyline

D.J.'s old bedroom is being converted into a nursery for the new baby. After discovering that a new baby crib is out of her price range, Roseanne schemes up a baby shower in hopes of getting at least forty $10.00 gifts, that she can exchange for the $400.00 crib. This plan threatens to backfire when the gifts are mostly homemade, or are otherwise nonexchangeable. After being unable to work together to paint the nursery without squabbling, Roseanne reassigns Becky and Darlene to throw the baby shower instead, but the girls are still at each other's throats because Darlene refuses to pull her weight, sticking Becky with all the work. Roseanne gets David to throw a "guy" baby shower for Dan with the men at his shop, hoping for even more exchangeable gifts, but that backfires as well. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Trivia

Alicia Goranson and Sarah Chalke both appeared at the end of this episode in a spoof of The Patty Duke Show (1963). The song made fun of the fact that the role kept switching hands between the two actresses. This sequence was cut from the DVD release and replaced with title cards on a black background. See more »

Quotes

Jackie Harris: [doesn't recognize several elderly women at the baby shower] Who are these women, and why are they here?
Roseanne Conner: Well, they're Mom's friends, and the great thing is that most of them are senile, so we can hit 'em up for presents twice.
