Hoi Polloi Meets Hoiti Toiti was the eighth episode of Season 9 of Roseanne, also the 206th overall series episode. It was written by Leif Sandaas and Debbie Kasper, and was directed by Mark K. Samuels. It originally aired on ABC-TV on November 12, 1996.


Roseanne, Jackie, DJ, Mark, Bev, Becky, Andy, and Jerry go to the Wentworth estate to meet Astrid's family, who aren't impressed at Roseanne's trashy ways. When she finds the family's stash of "happy pills," Roseanne teaches them to scream out their anger.


Socialite Astrid Wentworth invites the Conners to visit her snobby family at Martha's Vineyard. Kiki Wentworth tries to come on to D.J., while Roseanne teaches Doris Wentworth other ways to get her frustrations out rather than prescription medication.
