Becky returns home for her things, while Roseanne tries to accept Becky's marriage and tries to cheer up Dan after the loss of his bike shop. 


Roseanne and Dan prepare to say goodbye to Becky when she & Mark come back to gather some belongings and head out to start their married life together.


  • Toward the end of this episode, Roseanne confronts Mark about how he may have influenced Becky to marry him. Listen carefully. When Mark responds, "Becky doesn't do a damn thing she doesn't want to," Glenn Quinn's Irish accent can be detected.
  • When Dan leaves his bedroom, the door is on the left side, but in the previous seasons it was on the right.
  • At the end of this episode, when Roseanne is telling Mark that she would be his mother-in-law, you can see that Glenn Quinn is trying to hold back his laughter.
