Becky (to Dana while drunk): My parents dig all those sounds before music was invented.
Dana (also drunk): Mine too.

Darlene (to Becky): How come the liquor cabinet is open?
Becky: I don't know. Maybe the wine had to breathe.

Becky (to Dana): This is my sister Larlene, Lardene, Dardine...
[Dana pokes Darlene]
Darlene: What?!
Dana: Where's your bathroom?
Becky: Oh, we don't have a bathroom, we use a wok.

Darlene: Well, I'm going to go upstairs and flush the wok.

Karen (upset about Dana coming home drunk): Who was the bartender?
Darlene (to Becky): Wasn't it that girl that was over here studying with you?

Roseanne: For God's sake, Becky, you're 14.
Becky: Mom, everything I do, it's always "Oh, she's 14." When you do something, people don't go "Oh, well, she's 37."
Roseanne: 36 & 1/2.

Becky (sarcastically): I have one drink and I'm an alcoholic, quick, I'll call the 800 number.
Roseanne: We are your 800 number, Becky.
