Roseanne: [examining D.J.'s artwork] This is a pretty picture. Is this one for school? There's Daddy and me, and Becky and you... where's Darlene?

(Roseanne and Dan bump into eachother in the hallway to the kitchen, making them both yell, scaring Crystal)

Crystal: What was it?
Dan: Nothing.
Roseanne: I just bumped into my future, and it was hideous!

Becky: Mom, can Darlene and I go and see what's left of the neighborhood?

[After the salesman dies on the table]
Roseanne:(Checks his pulse) Oh my God! He's dead!
Dan: Check it again!
Roseanne: I know how to count to zero!

Roseanne: Well, don't look at me. If we would have had sex like I wanted to, none of this would have happened.

Darlene: How's my baklava?
Police Officer: It's very hot. Don't touch it.
Darlene: [touches baklava] Ow!
Roseanne: You think 'cause you got a gun, she's gonna listen to you?

Roseanne: You know, the last three supervisors was checking out my personnel file, but you see any of them around here?

Mr. Faber: [after Roseanne quits by dramatically punching out and tossing her time-card on the floor] Well, that was a wonderful performance, Roseanne, but if any of you are considering joining her, may I point out there are two doors to this room: one that pays and one that doesn't.
[following Roseanne's lead, Jackie punches out, quitting. One by one, Vonda, Sylvia, and Crystal do the same.]
Roseanne: I guess we're not going to make our quota today, Honey-bunch.

Jackie: It's high time that we thank the woman responsible for our emancipation: my sister, ex-Wellman employee, and a heckuva woman in her own right....What was your name again?
Roseanne: Sally Field!
