** Dan saying he was having an affair in "Roseanne in the Hood", which was PlayedForLaughs [[ItMakesSenseInContext if you watch the episode's plot]] becomes less so when he [[spoiler:has an affair in the season finale with one of his mother's nurses...but that becomes even more ''hard'' to watch when it's revealed it was just a moment Roseanne made up in her book after Dan died, stating that his death felt like he was with another woman.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When Bev joins AA she accuses Dan of being an 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: In one episode, Dan describes Roseanne as person who can only deal with pain by spreading it; while ostensibly to humanize her, it sounds uncomfortably like how one would rationalize/justify the behavior of an emotionally abusive spouse and parent.

* {{Narm}}: Watching the beginning of the tornado episode with them treating a tornado ''watch'' with gallows humor and panic can be rather ludicrous to viewers from Tornado Alley (For the record, a tornado '''watch,''' basically means "Conditions are right for a tornado; stay tuned, one might form. A tornado '''''warning''''' means "A tornado has been spotted, YouCanPanicNow.) They are vindicated soon after though...

** In an early episode DJ bites his Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun and goes "Bang, bang." Flash forward to 2013 when a kid could get suspended from school for doing the same thing.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: One can only imagine how the show would have been if some of the changes Roseanne admitted to making in the final episode for her book--such as Jackie being a lesbian rather than Bev, and Becky and Darlene dating David and Mark respectively instead of vice versa--had made it into the series proper.

** The Chief from ''GreysAnatomy'' is one of Dan's poker buddies!
** David became [[TheBigBangTheory a brilliant physicist with a quirky roomate]].
** Looks like Becky 2 made good on her plan to [[{{Scrubs}} go to school to become a doctor.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In "Kansas City, Here We Come," a subplot involved Becky having a horrible boss who calls her a bad name. Trying to avoid saying it in front of DJ, we get this exchange.

*** Not only did a popular show called ''Series/TheLWord'' debut years later, but DJ's asking this question to ''Darlene,'' whose actress, Sara Gilbert, actually came out as "the L word" later in her life.
