This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The Aliens who abducted Arnie ALSO abducted Becky, and replaced her with an alien replacement
who used her/its mental powers to convince everyone that she was the same person even though she wasn't. After a couple years, it's mission was over and it was replaced with the real sister, Becky, again.
  • And then came back, then went away, then came back again.

The Timing works, sorta. Maybe he unknowingly fathered a child with Samantha?

Several popular TV series are Alternate Universe versions of the Roseanne Universe.
  • Scrubs is what would have happened if the Conners were a wealthy upper-class family instead of lower/middle-class.
  • Big Bang Theory is what happened if Mark/Davids mother had been more nurturing.
    • Except for the fact that his parent in The Big Bang Theory was anything, but nurturing.
    • Maybe David channeled his rage at Mrs. Healy's neglect into physics instead of the arts.
    • Reba is what would happen if Roseanne and Dan got divorced.
