* {{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.
-->'''DJ:''' The "B" word?
-->'''Darlene:''' Worse.
-->'''DJ:''' The "F" word?
-->'''Dan:''' Deej!
-->'''DJ:''' The "L" word?
-->'''Darlene:''' What's the "L" word?
-->'''DJ:''' I don't know, what's the "F" word?
*** 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.

* WhatAnIdiot: Dan and Roseanne for opening up a bike shop (that was previously failing) in a small town like Lanford, where the bike demographic would be very small, and having no education in business or economics.

Added DiffLines:

** The season nine HalloweenEpisode "Satan, Darling" has a newly-rich Roseanne and Jackie at a society Halloween party. While there, a woman who bears a striking resemblance to [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis]] is just standing in the middle of the party like a statue, saying nothing, which causes both sisters to do a double take on more than one occasion. Their reactions to her were similar to the audience's.
