* StrawmanHasAPoint: In "Troubles with the Rubbles," Roseanne's neighbor becomes angry with her after her son runs off to a construction site with DJ while staying at Rosanne's house and badly cuts his finger, while Rosanne never knew where they were. While the neighbor had been condescending and snotty to Rosanne throughout the episode and the show seems to want us to sympathize with Rosanne when she tells her off for being overprotective and judgmental, the point that two eight year olds should not be allowed to wander around town unsupervised when the adult in charge has no idea where they are is definitely not without merit.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Even as being the [[BrattyTeenageDaughter bratty teenage daughters]] throughout much of the series (until both became OlderAndWiser), Becky and Darlene get hit with this. The former is so obsessed with her love of Mark, she feels [[NoSympathy nothing]] for either her father losing his job and the family more of less being ''broke'' but super-pissy because Mark now has no job and has to move away. Also, even as Roseanne being a know-it-all jerk sometimes (although at the time, she was much nicer and relatable), her attitude in "No Talking" towards her was rather snotty and to everyone in the family, not just her mother. The latter, even as a {{Goth}} who hated "everything" also had her nasty moments and came off as being difficult just to be difficult, mainly when she cheated on David for no reason, who basically worshipped the ground she walked on, yet in "Snoop Davey Dave" when he reveals that she did drugs in the past, we're supposed to sympathize with ''her'' as David has no right to be angry/bitter about their breakup. ''Then'' in the "Don't Make Me Over" episode, when both girls treated Rosie to a beauty day at the spa for Mother's Day just so she'll let them go to an out of town concert (which she didn't), [[WhatTheHellHero neither could even grasp why their mother was so upset over their deception.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When Bev joins AA she accuses Dan of being an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]] because he has a keg at his Super Bowl party. These are PlayedForLaughs. This episode comes across as jarring after John Goodman admitted he was an alcoholic for thirty years.

** Watching Roseanne and Dan yell at Becky for underage drinking is kind of hard to watch after John Goodman admitted he struggled with alcoholism.

** In "Dances with Darlene," Darlene backs out of going to a school dance after disliking the fact that she's treated differently by her family when she dresses up for it. Rosanne tells her that there are better ways of getting back at her than that, giving the example that "Becky's boyfriend might have a little brother!" Sure enough, not long after, Darlene begins dating [[spoiler:and eventually marries]] Mark's little brother, David.

* JerkassHasAPoint: In the Season Four finale, Dan and Roseanne's bike shop, which they sunk virtually every penny they had into, goes under. Becky is particularly devastated--not only did her parents gamble her college tuition on the shop, but Mark, who was working there, was given a lucrative job offer in another city. When Becky finally reaches her breaking point, she takes it out on Dan, blaming him: "I don't have college, I don't have Mark, I don't have ANYTHING! You blew it, Dad! You blew it for me and this entire family!" While she is being insensitive and ignoring the pain Dan and Roseanne are going through, her argument is a valid one--Dan ''did'' go into business without any real knowledge of economics or management, chose a niche market instead of something that would broadly appeal to customers, and staked the family's fortunes on a longtime dream without considering the consequences. Roseanne even seems to acknowledge it in-universe, outright telling Becky to shut up when she starts her rant as if she knows it's hurting Dan.
