SynopsisEdit

Roseanne and Jackie go to Chicago for Parent's Day, to surprise Darlene, and in hopes of meeting her new boyfriend, Jimmy. David wants to learn how to be tough, in order to compete with Darlene's boyfriend, who is a boxer, for her affections. Roseanne assigns Dan to help David feel good about just being himself. D.J. is getting picked on at school by a bully, but refuses to learn to fight back for fear that getting hit will hurt. Fred is impressed with Dan's parenting, until he figures out that Dan is only doing what Roseanne tells him to.

Plot summaryEdit

DJ is being bullied at school and Dan offers to teach him how to fight. DJ reveals his own patent moves for getting out of a fight which involves lying on the ground in the fetal position. David asks Dan to teach him how to fight, but Roseanne stops Dan, telling him David only wants to learn how to fight to impress Darlene, because Jimmy is a boxer. She tells him to encourage David to feel good about himself which Dan struggles with. Jackie and Roseanne head to Chicago to meet Jimmy. Roseanne dislikes Jimmy and tells Jackie she really wants David and Darlene back together. When DJ beats up David, Dan tries to comfort David and discovers David wasn't trying to impress Darlene, but was trying to impress Dan.
