Did You Know?


When a new refrigerator is delivered to the Conner's, it's wheeled in on a dolly and parked in the living room. The dolly is strapped to the left side and the worker stuffs a crumpled delivery/sales slip under the dolly's strap near the dolly. After the worker leaves, the paper is now folded neatly under the belt, and is more on the corner, than near the dolly. During the same scene, when Dan takes back money Burt gave to Darlene, the paper is now under the strap on the front of the fridge. Seconds later, as Roseanne is crossing the living room, the paper is back on the side of the fridge next to the dolly. Having never touched the fridge, in the final scene the dolly is now strapped to the right side of the fridge, and the sales paper is gone altogether. See more »

Somebody Stole My Gal (#2.4)
7 March 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty amusing episode.

Roseanne goes to Dan's jobsite and meets an architect there who offers her a job. He also comes for a visit and this visit ends up in them seeing how desperate for love and affection he is. After he doesn't want to leave their family alone, spends time with them, buys present and they need to solve the problem.

I felt bad for the guy! When he said he was even left at the altar I laughed a bit but it was sad! And he was very well meaning, they should have let him become their friend. Even keep the fridge. After finally having friends he would cool down in some time. The end scene where he tells he will leave them alone and then comes back was pretty funny though!
