Three of Roseanne's ex-husbands have appeared or worked on the show during its run. Her first husband, Bill, wrote a few episodes for the show and played Dan's friend, Freddy, in a season one episode. Tom Arnold, her second husband, played Arnie and was an executive producer. Finally, her third husband, Ben Thomas, had a cameo as a police officer who pulled her and Jackie over in an episode later in the show's run. See more...

Plot hole: On the episode "Scenes From A Barbecue", all the kids and Arnie are about to play a basketball game. Darlene and Chuck Jr. battle in Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who picks first. They both throw scissors, and then Chuck Jr. says he gets to pick first. They should have done it over, since that would be considered 'a tie', he really didn't win.
Factual error: In episode "Out of The Past," Season 8 Episode 15, 1/4 through the show, Darlene, Becky, David and Becky's husband are playing Scrabble. Becky's husband puts down "oxygen" on the board in the lower corner with the "O" covering the triple word square. David is counting up the score and says the "X" is on the triple letter box, and totals the points up to 99. The problem is there is no triple letter box next to the triple word box or even on the outside edges of the board.
Continuity: In Season 2, episode "Five of a Kind," when Roseanne & Jackie talk about Arnie, they act like they haven't known him long. Jackie even states, "I don't know him." Yet, in episode "Why Jackie Becomes A Trucker," Jackie sleeps with Arnie. Roseanne says all the girls made a pact in high school that none of them would ever sleep with him.
Continuity: In the episode where Jackie takes over the house, while Roseanne is at their parents. DJ comes in the kitchen and is sent in the laundry area for a shirt. Before he goes in there he is wearing a pair of dark jean with nothing on them. He comes back a second later with his head stuck in a shirt still with the same pants on. But when he finally pops his head through the shirt his pants have changed to a pair of stonewash, with what looks like bleach stains on the front. A wide shot of the kitchen in the next frame and his pants are back to the dark ones with nothing on them.
Continuity: "The War Room" When a depressed Roseanne emerges from her bedroom after Dan has left her, she tells Nancy and Leon that she wants to turn over her and Jackie's shares of the restaurant to them. She says she wants Nancy and Leon to experience the same sense of accomplishment that she and Jackie felt when they first opened the business. However, Roseanne seems to have forgotten that it was Nancy, along with her, Jackie, and Bev, who started the restaurant.
Continuity: Over the course of the entire show, the entrance into DJ's bedroom changes position. In the earlier seasons, the entry was on the right-hand side of the screen and the bathroom door was to the left. In later episodes, the characters entered the bedroom from the left-hand side. Everything else in the room remains the same.
Revealing: In the episode "Home for the Holidays", when the family is eating the Christmas cookies, look at the top of the screen. In the kitchen, you can blatantly see where the top of the kitchen actually ends, revealing gray panels. The Conner's ceiling never went up this high, so it is definitely set material.
