Storyline

The family barbecue sees Nana Mary's first appearance on the show. Family and friends (except Dan's father and Roseanne's mother) gather at the Conner household for food, drink and singing, and Roseanne's fellow waitress Bonnie, gets a chance to show what a great singer she really is. Beverley still manages to upset Roseanne and Jackie from the other end of the phone, but Nana Mary turns the tables on her. Written by Gabriel Jones

Bonnie
6 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

There's lots of fun stuff in this episode, especially the scenes with Shelley Winters, but the highlight for me was the scene with everyone singing in the back yard. When Bonnie-the- waitress started belting out "I don't like you, but I love you..." I almost peed myself. It's Bonnie Bramlett! I'd wondered for years what had become of one of rock's great female vocalists, and there she was, hiding in plain sight on Roseanne! For viewers/readers who aren't familiar with her work, go to the back of your parents' closet and look for a record (that's a flat black disc about 10" in diameter) entitled Delaney, Bonnie, and Friends on the road with Eric Clapton. It is great.
