** An early episode has Crystal lamenting her dead husband, Sonny, and wondering what her life would have been like if he'd lived. Once she leaves the room, Roseanne hugs Dan tenderly, and jokingly ponders what her life would have been like if Dan had lived. May also be a {{Foreshadowing}} / HilariousInHindsight.

* 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.



* NeverLiveItDown: The series finale, which revealed that the entire series was a book written by Roseanne and that she had changed numerous details about her life. The revelation that Dan actually ''did'' die of his heart attack left many surprised fans completely blindsided.

** In "Terms Of Estrangement", a despondent Dan makes several cracks about "reloading" and "turning the gun on himself". It wasn't funny then, and with the slew of mass shootings in recent years, it sure as hell isn't funny now.

* 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 arm, 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 or 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.

** In another episode, the mother of one of Becky's friends shows up at the house to blast Dan and Roseanne after her daughter came home drunk (Becky and her friend helped themselves to alcohol from the liquor cabinet). The woman is made out to be a bitch for her completely justified anger at Dan and Roseanne for failing to supervise the kids and for not wanting her daughter to be friends with Becky anymore.

** The series being {{Uncancelled}} 20 years after it was put to rest. With the controversy surrounding ''Series/FullerHouse'' many fans are skeptical about the series being brought back for an 8th season after such a long time.
*** There's also the issue on if the new season should follow the narrative from the majority of the 7th season [[spoiler:(Dan is still alive and the Conners actually did win the lottery)]] or the series finale [[spoiler:(Dan purportedly died of a heart attack and the series was just a book written by Roseanne to cope)]].

** Roseanne's run-in with an unfriendly customer on the first night of business at the diner. The man becomes increasingly unhinged and aggressive as Roseanne goes to fetch him coffee, clearly alarmed at his behavior. The customer then grabs her and just stares her in the face, only to storm out moments later. The incident unnerves Roseanne so much that she seeks out a self-defense class while Dan becomes overprotective.
*** Perhaps more unsettling is the fact that we don't know what the customer's deal was or what became of him after the fact.

** The entire ninth season may count owning to its jarring GenreShift, which many saw as too far removed from the blue collar tales upon which the whole series had been built on.

** Roseanne, who is harsh but not physically abusive towards her children spanking DJ after he wrecks their car, finally having been driven to the end of her rope. Roseanne is so horrified she can't even speak, recalling [[NotSoDifferent it was just like what her father would do]]. Thankfully she makes things right with DJ.
