- Jackie: Maybe Roxanne just isn't my part.
- Roseanne: I don't know. She dumps the cool guy with the big nose for the moron with the cute butt. That's right up your alley.
- DJ (to Roseanne): You lied!
- Roseanne: Okay, so it's not exactly like Pinocchio.
- Darlene: You should've caught on when she told you that the Elephant Man was just like Dumbo.
- Dan: Oh, okay.
