We all waited eagerly to see how the Roseanne Reboot would address the two Becky’s situation, and it wasn’t kept a secret that Lacey would return as the original Becky or that Sarah Chalke would cameo in 3 episodes as ritzy Andrea, looking to hire Becky as her surrogate.
The episode wasn’t all heavy though, Becky’s attempts at owning a dog and then returning it, and then Roseanne trying to get it back for her, only to have Jacki get rejected for the adoption, was a hilarious I Love Lucy setup to a joke. The one-two punch setup of Roseanne insulting Jacki’s loneliness making her perfect to be a dog owner, followed by Darlene entering and delivering a similar speech was icing on the cake.

Second favorite on the joke front was the scene with Dan and Roseanne where he attempts to out his foot down only to have Roseanne ice him out (with astill frozen lunch). The staging reminded us of one of our favourite episodes, “Fights and Stuff”, and without the nostalgia the Roseanne jokes about the SPCA commercials would be in our top favourite moments (it still is with an honorable mention right there!).
