QuotesEdit

  • Dan: [telling Roseanne why he didn't get the job] I can't do interviews; I get too nervous. The guy asked me if I had any hobbies- I panicked and said drinking.

  • Roseanne: I wanna go someplace where I can win something.
  • Jackie: Well, at least you got to fulfill the kids' dream of going to Disneyland.
  • Roseanne: Yeah, that's great; Darlene versus the Happiest Place on Earth.

  • Dan: [telling Roseanne why he didn't get the job] I can't do interviews; I get too nervous. The guy asked me if I had any hobbies- I panicked and said drinking.

  • Molly: [while watching Ty and Jackie talk] Looks like my dad and your Aunt Jackie are really hitting it off. Wouldn't it be really bizzare if they got married?
  • Darlene: Yeah then we'd be cousins and since we live next door to each other we could share clothes, talk on the phone, and do each others' hair. [Molly looks pleasantly surprised] Die, dwarf.

  • Darlene: [confused at the control Molly has over Charlotte] I can't believe this, you two are so screwed up.
  • Molly: We are not!
  • Darlene: Oh, please. Why do you think she eats so much and you'll sleep with any guy who'll give you a little attention?
  • Molly: Oh, shove it, Darlene. Where the hell do you get so much insight?
  • Darlene: [looks over at Roseanne and Jackie] Trust me. I know.

  • Roseanne [when she comes in the front door and sees Darlene & Dan yelling at the contestants on TV]: I swear, it if wasn't for unemployment and bomb threats called into the school, you two would have no quality time together.
