DJ (to Roseanne): You stink!
Roseanne: I do not.
DJ: You smell like smoke.
Roseanne: Well, my hair was on fire.

Darlene: High school's just learning lies and telling lies.
Roseanne: Really? Then how come you ain't getting any A's?

Bonnie: She has cigarettes in there!
Leon: Okay! Okay! Roseanne, go to the bathroom. The purse stays here!
Roseanne: Oh! Fine! I'll go get my coat.
(Bonnie and Leon give chase)

Roseanne: Man, I don't need cigarettes. My kids will kill me.

Roseanne (to Dan): If I quit, I'll gain back all the weight I lost! You don't want that, do you?
Dan: That's right, keep smoking. I like my women skinny and hawking up tar.

Roseanne (to a customer): Can I help you?
Customer: Huh, yeah. Which is better, the tuna salad or the egg salad?
Roseanne: Tuna salad, egg salad, chicken salad, turkey salad, shrimp salad. What difference does it make? It's all just different words for mayonnaise. Pick one.

Customer: No...
Roseanne: YES you did, then why'd you take a big ol' bite out of it?
Bonnie (while on the phone): Oh, she's doing much better Dan.
Roseanne: Eat it or wear it.
