    I'm not sure, but I thought it was cool that they referenced it in the show.

    I always thought the second Becky was hotter, so I guess its no surprise she went on to star in that show about the young hospital workers. Grubs or something.

        I think she left the show because she was going to college. You know, it's sorta like Johnathan Taylor Thomas's situation on Home Improvement. The actor wanted to go to college and left the show to do so, which is why they had that Randy's character went on an exchange program in Costa Rica. Sucks that he and Tim Allen didn't get along irl after that, hence the absence of "Randy" for the final ep.

              There was one episode, where the did kind of like an oldtime Roseanne in black and white, and they had some song that sang about the differences of Becky, and even featured both Beckys in the same show. It explained their differences and similarities. The 2nd Becky was most def hotter :)

                  The original Becky left the show to go to college that's when they brought in the replacement Becky (Sarah Chalke, who now is on Scrubs). Original Becky (sorry don't remember her name) did come back once for a "Patty Duke Show" themed skit on a black & white episode spoofing old tv shows (Patty Duke, Gilligans' Island, Leave it to Beaver, etc...). Then after graduating college original Becky came back replacing the replacement and stayed till the series ended in 97'.

                  Roseanne is on Nick-at-Nite

                    All they needed was a new Roseanne, and that show would have been pretty decent!

                      Random Roseanne fact: All the opening credit pictures are taken in my hometown, Evansville, Indiana. One of the producers was from here. I had to drive down Delaware street everyday to get to work for a while.
