- We finally did the math on Chris Tucker and his mysterious uncredited appearance in this episode. He must be in the background at Wellman Plastics. Turns out he was born in 1971, so he would have just cleared the adult bar as a background extra, and had just moved to Hollywood from Georgia after high school in 1988.
- Queen Debbie hears "Woodsy Guthrie" as an echo of "Woodsy Allen," who Homer misnomers on "A Milhouse Divided" from 1996, and does not seem to be written by Laurie Gelman. We're not saying she would be recycling jokes or anything. DO @ us.
- Roseanne's mother was very into Fascinating Womanhood when Roseanne was growing up, which bore fruit in the form of Roseanne's Domestic Goddess routine:
- Darcy thinks Helen Andelin is barfy and we are inclined to agree, but are glad Roseanne found something useful there!
- Queen Debbie has also been enjoying Stealing the Show: How Women are Revolutionizing Television by Joy Press, a look at "the rise of the female showrunner." There is a chapter on Roseanne.
- Queen SJ received her copy of Roseanearchy while Debbie was visiting! Yay!
Did your mom have a laundry rack like that when you were growing up? (Upper left.)
