** Not that her supposed acceptance stopped her from making jokes about Leon and Nancy's sexual orientations.

*** They do get mentioned when David tells Darlene his parents are getting divorced; his father takes them with him. Since their scene in the holiday episode is removed in syndication, for many fans this one sentence is the only acknowledgement they even existed.

* FreudianExcuse: Roseanne and Jackie are implied to have ''quite'' a few issues with men due to their father's abuse -- mainly Jackie's promiscuity, but a case could certainly be made for Roseanne's control issues (the show also mentioned it might be the reason behind Roseanne's overeating.) Mark also reveals a few of these later on due to his and David's AbusiveParents, and even Bev seemed to have these with her own mother.

Fortunately, Darlene gets better after she realizes what she's doing and that she really did love David and wanted to make it work between them (she's still snarky thereafter, but also tries to be more compassionate).

*** Season 4 episode 25. A politician comes to the door and talks to Roseanne about his plan to offer tax cuts to out of state businesses, to entice them to set up in his jurisdiction. Roseanne delivers a great speech and he leaves. A few scenes later, the same politician shows up at Dan's bike shop. Roseanne comes out of the back and says "Oh, hey!" [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And he goes running]].

** "Brain Dead Poet's Society" has Roseanne talking about how Darlene could be a really good writer, and Darlene's supposed "joke" of a poem being really moving and well-written. Flash forward to her high school years, where Darlene would write many short stories as well as co-create a comic with David. She even tested out of high school to go to college early on a writing scholarship.

* ACupAngst: Jackie's small breasts are a source of embarrassment to her. Doesn't help that Roseanne teases her about them, and a woman at the health spa in season 9 says they're "much too small for her body".

** There are also details dropped about him (such as him driving a lime green monster) in his first appearances that were previously associated with a character named Dwight. Dwight was meant to be a close friend of Dan's who had sent a lot of contracting work his way, but he never appeared on the show again after Arnie came and took his place.

* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: The DVD releases of Seasons 8 and 9 suffered from this. Any use of copyrighted music was removed or dubbed over with generic music, and any credits sequences featuring music or celebrity cameos were replaced with generic credits. Most infamously, this meant the removal of a parody of the theme from ThePattyDukeShow lampshading the fact that two actresses alternated between the role of Becky. This sequence can still be seen on TV airings.

added the Healy sisters (yes, there were 2 Healy sisters) under Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
Added DiffLines:
** In "It's No Place Like Home for the Holidays" (season 5, episode 12), we meet Mark and David's little sisters: Lisa Healy (played by Clara Bryant) and Nicki Healy (played by Sarah Freeman). We never see or hear of them ever again, not even when David's subsequently "adopted" by the Conners in "It's a Boy" (season 5, episode 19). Considering the reason David's taken in is because of their mother's [[FridgeHorror physical and psychological abuse]]... Poor Lisa and Nicki's disappearance probably qualifies as WhatHappenedToTheMouse, but not even ''fans'' seem to remember them!

* ObliviouslyEvil: Meg Wellman, spoiled, self-absborbed, condescending to the point of consistently misnaming people, and literally leaving destruction in her wake, has no idea what a godawful human being she is and casually buys off her victims because she's just ''that'' accustomed to exploiting the working class. Crystal describes her as being too rich to know any better.
