*** There's another Heartwarming moment in this episode, too. Roseanne is playing Santa Claus at the mall, and naturally listens to kids tell her what they want for Christmas. One overbearing mother tries to tell her little girl exactly what to ask for, especially regarding a pair of ballet slippers, as she apparently wants the child to become a ballerina. Roseanne asks the mom to leave them alone, then quietly asks the little girl what ''she'' wants to be when she grows up, and even offers to find her a toy that will help her follow her dream instead of doing what her mother wants. For a woman who outright states her hatred of her own children, Roseanne can be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold pretty sweet]].

* The episode where David moves in with the Conners. They spend the entire episode telling David that he can't live with them. They go over to apologize to David's mother, since they thought she came up with the idea, which she didn't (Darlene and David cooked up the whole scheme in an attempt to stay together when David was supposed to move). When they mention it, she flies into a rage, including calling David a worthless little bastard ''to his face.'' The empty look on his face is heartbreaking. Roseanne had already shredded her previously in one of her glorious beatdowns, but hearing that was enough for her to simply say:

** This episode has another moment that is also tearjerking at the same time. When Roseanne tells Dan about what she's done, he's upset, especially because they originally agreed not to let David move in. But when Roseanne tells him that David's house is the kind ''she'' grew up in, he quietly says "That bad?" and leans back, sighing as he accepts that he can't let David live that way. It's a beautiful moment of these two caring about another person that much, but makes you sad (having seen what David's mother is like) that Dan understands immediately how bad things are, without Roseanne having to give any further explanation.
*** During that same conversation, the ''first thing'' Roseanne says is that she normally wouldn't make this kind of decision without Dan's input and support. For all of the jokes about Roseanne being the real head of the household, it proves that their marriage is truly an equal one, and that she does respect Dan as much as he respects her.

* "It's A Boy" has a moment that is also tearjerking at the same time. It's when Roseanne tells Dan she has agreed to let Darlene's boyfriend David live with them rather than move away with his mother. Dan is upset that she did this after they initially agreed to say no, but when Roseanne tells him that David's house is the kind ''she'' grew up in, he quietly says "That bad?" and leans back, sighing as he accepts that he can't let David live that way.

* In "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" Roseanne asks Dan multiple times to take her dancing when they go on their date but Dan turns her down each time. On their date they run into an old friend who has recently gotten divorced because she and her husband realized they both wanted different things out of life. This causes Roseanne and especially Dan to think about what that means for the future of their marriage. So finally, after Roseanne assures Dan that she's not going anywhere anytime soon, Dan quietly asks if she wants to dance.
* Despite the fact that they only barely get along at this point, Roseanne immediately defends Leon when she thinks that the man administering the lie detector test is trying to get him fired because he's gay. She was wrong, but it's the thought that counts.

* In one episode, everyone makes a video for Roseanne's unborn baby. Becky and Darlene are mostly making of fun of the situation...until Becky comes across a letter that Roseanne wrote to Dan on the eve of their wedding. The girls are genuinely touched by the sentiment expressed in it, and drop the snarking to read it to their unborn sibling.
* In the Season Five premiere, Becky is preparing to move away with Mark. Darlene comes in to say goodbye, and the two sisters share some words of mutual love. Despite all their differences, they really do care about each other.
** A similar--but much funnier--sentiment appears in an episode where the two sit in the Lanford Lunch Box one night and get bombed on a bottle of peppermint Schnapps. They naturally tease each other, but they also express some hidden feelings, such as Darlene admitting that she thinks Mark is "gorgeous." When Becky [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that they rarely act this way around each other, Darlene jokes that Roseanne should have let them get drunk years ago.

* DJ actually gets one in "Maybe Baby." There is a chance that something is medically wrong with Roseanne's unborn baby, and after DJ finds out, he tells her he'll support her no matter what her decision is, which is what she had been desperate to hear from someone for the entire episode.

* In "Lovers' Lane," a Season One episode, Roseanne and Dan find out that Becky has a crush on Chip, a boy at the bowling alley. They have a lot of fun teasing her by claiming that they're going to be as embarrassing as possible when they meet him. When Roseanne does go to the snack bar where Chip works, though, she ends up being nice, letting him keep her change, and pretending that she doesn't know Becky (though she does wink at her just to give her a scare). Chip comments that Roseanne is "pretty cool"; Becky realizes he's right, smiles, and agrees.

* In "War and Peace," Darlene is the person who has to post Dan's bail after he's arrested for giving Fisher a (well-deserved) beatdown for hitting Jackie. While this is mostly a Crowning Moment of Funny on Darlene's part (she spends the scene dropping sarcastic comments and jokes), she does eventually get serious and tell Dan that his giving Fisher what he had coming to him was a cool thing for him to do.
