The going is tough as Dan and Roseanne struggle to sell even one motorcycle in their new store. And while their parents work at the store from morning 'til night, Becky is put in charge at home - which spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E for Darlene and D.J.
Depressed over seeing her old boyfriend, Gary, with his new fiance, Jackie is driven into the arms of another man.

Since Jackie must drive her truck to Kansas City, she figures she might as well just pay a visit to her dad's mysterious girlfriend of 20 years! Although Roseanne is against the idea at first, she joins Jackie for a very uncomfortable truck ride. But the ride isn't as uncomfortable as they both feel when they're finally standing right outside the "other woman's" door! Meanwhile, Becky's new job causes trouble with her boss and, inadvertently, with her boyfriend and her dad.
Dan and Roseanne are shocked that Darlene has found a new friend. Elated with this news, Roseanne figures it's a good time to ask Dan if he wants a parttime job working at Rodbell's as Santa Claus. After Dan snubs his nose at the offer, Roseanne asks her boss, Leon, why she can't be Santa. Following some discussion, Leon gives in and Roseanne finally gets the job. While on the job, she gets a chance to meet Darlene's new friend. She's as old as Roseanne, has a kid, and owns a bookstore. Not exactly what Roseanne expected.
