- Arnie tells Roseanne in this episode that him and Nancy are getting married. In the season 2 episode "Five of a Kind," Arnie said his girlfriend's name was Sharon.
- D.J. (to Roseanne): Darlene called me a prevert.
- Roseanne: You're not a prevert honey, you're a pervert.
- Roseanne (to Dan): Well how come it's okay to go to the bank and pay all this huge interest, but it's not okay to get it from Jackie for nothing.
- Dan: It's good business, dear.
- Becky (after complaining to Roseanne about D.J. walking in on her in the shower): Your son is sick!
- Darlene: Yeah, well, now that he saw you naked, he's probably upstairs puking his guts out.
- Darlene: Now the little pervert's peeking at me!
- Becky: Why?
- Arnie (about DJ): Kid's a peeper, huh? Brings back memories.
- Roseanne: You have sisters too?
- Arnie: I wish!
- Dan : And what if he can't? What do we do? Repossess?
- Roseanne : Yeah, and then we'll give them to Darlene so D.J. has something to look at!
