IndieWire made a terrific list of their five favorite Jackie scenes from Roseanne for Laurie Metcalf’s birthday today - the above scene, which they listed, is one of my favorite TV moments ever. The jig is up!
Roseanne: [shouts] What the hell were you *thinking*!
Jackie: [hysterically] I was thinking, that I just lost a great guy like Gary, and now he’s gone for good, and I’ll never find another great guy! I’m 36 years old, I’ve got flabby arms, and pelican neck! And all my house plants are dead, and no one loves me; but what difference does that make anyway, because everything in my life *sucks*!
