‘No. I just didn’t say anything because we can’t afford the surgery,” Roseanne said.

‘And I have these pills because I’ll be dealing with this for a long time. You have no idea how much it hurts,” she explained.

The episode began with Roseanne exclaiming that she was missing her Vicodin, prompting her sister Jackie to question the family.

As a former police officer, Jackie believed she had the experience to get to the bottom of the missing pills.

“I’m in pain, so I take a few extra pills. It’s not like I’m addicted to drugs,” Roseanne explained.

“I’ll limit,” she argued to no avail.

“No, you won’t. You take it more than just pain. Order the surgery,” Dan scolded.

Family secrets: 'I'm in pain so I take a few extra pills, It's not like I'm addicted to drugs,' Roseanne explained.

“Look if it’s between you and me, when I come up with money, I come up with something,” Dan said as he left the room.

As Dan walks out into the garage, Roseanne pulls a knee-high ice pack out of the freezer, where she’s unscrewed the top and pulled out another batch of pills.

Meanwhile, health insurance was still on the table as Darlene and Becky struggled to find jobs with proper benefits.

After a family friend, Crystal, announces that she is retiring with full benefits and can recommend someone to replace her at the local casino, Darlene and Becky compete for a spot.

Darlene initially refused because she felt the job was beneath her, while Becky argued that the job should go to her since Darlene already had a college degree.

However, Darlene found a school program for Becky where she could become a hospitality manager instead of a waitress.

The episode ended with Becky sitting in the casino taking on Darlene who is in full work mode.

Darlene got the last laugh when she gave Becky’s phone number to a stranger at the casino and said ‘she likes texting pictures’.
