"Roseanne" Celebrates 20 Years!
''I was a huge John Goodman fan before the show. When they cast him, I was agog; I was thrilled. He is a delight. But ultimately you're winding up and she's the crack of the bat. Her perspective was the one I was so grateful to see on the show. She was the reason I went. That character. People would say, 'So you're writing on Roseanne?' I was 24 at the time. 'Do you write Darlene's lines?' I said, 'Yes, I write Darlene's lines, I leave a space, then I write a rebuttal.' They assumed I wrote the young person.'' - Joss Whedon on writing for Roseanne
