Heart & Soul was the 24th episode of Season 8 of Roseanne, also the 197th overall series episode. It was written by Daniel Palladino and William Lucas Walker, and was directed by Gail Mancuso. It originally aired on ABC-TV on May 14, 1996.


Roseanne uses her brash humor as a coping mechanism after Dan has a heart attack at Darlene's wedding reception.


Roseanne tries—in vain—to be cool at the hospital. We learn that DJ performed CPR on Dan to keep him alive. Dan's hospital room is the venue for Darlene and David's scaled-down reception.
