Storyline

Part 1 of 2. Roseanne plans an impromptu Christmas dinner party in January for Dan's father Ed, who couldn't be there for Christmas. She decides to invite Donald, a customer she knows at Rodbell's Coffee Shop, and Crystal, with a ruse, as a surprise fix-up for the two. Just before dinner is served, however, Roseanne is served a huge surprise of her own, forcing her to rethink her plans. When Dan is let in on the secret, he becomes irate, and stubbornly refuses to accept reality. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Towards the end of the episode, when Dan returns home, he says, "is there any coffee?" to which Roseanne replies, "a whole pot" - if you look closely at the coffee pot, there's maybe about 1/4 coffee left, not the whole pot as she claimed. See more »
