Plot summaryEdit

Roseanne is depressed about Dan's affair. After she stays in bed for days eating junk food, her friends and family members try different ways to get her to snap out of it. Leon (Martin Mull) shows a more compassionate side and tries to gives Roseanne some words of encouragement but it fails - she ends up vomitting on his sweater. Nancy (Sandra Bernhard) tries to lure her out of bed with crystals and New Age methods. Eventually, Roseanne comes out on her own with a decision about the diner.

Note: John Goodman does not appear.
