"Yeah, you know, when I played football and you got a concussion," Dan says, "You went right back in the game, it didn't hurt any of us. There was no long-term damage."

"Uh, Dan, you're watching basketball," replies Roseanne.

The third promo focuses more on the family dynamic with Dan, Roseanne and their daughter Darlene Connor (Sara Gilbert) sitting on the couch together watching basketball.

Darlene and Dan are seen jumping up with excitement with their team scoring a point.

Flustered Roseanne asks, "What happened?"

"He made a three-point shot," Dan replies.

"Women," both Dan and Darlene sneered.
