Roseanne - Becky's Missing Foot
In the "dueling Becky's" scene of the 8th season premiere (where Roseanne holds a baby shower), when both Becky's are sitting on the coach and Sarah Chalke has her legs crossed, you can clearly see that her right foot is missing. It's rather odd and inexplicable as the scene had two different actresses and should not have been spliced together.

If the part you are referring to is at the end when they do the Patty Duke-like black and white segment, it was intentional. When the Patty Duke Show was on, they had her playing twins, so sometimes they needed to do that camera effect so that both girls were on screen at the same time. They did it as a joke.

The mystery of Becky's missing foot solved! This comment kind of freaked me out. Luckily I have this episode on TiVo and was able to watch it. When I first watched it again, it did indeed appear that the Becky on the right was missing her foot when she crossed her leg. But then I realized the scene of the two Becky's sitting on the couch was actually a split screen right down the middle (done as a joke) If you look at the Becky on the left, her HAND disapears when it crosses that center line split screen.

The scene was spliced together, as many people already know. As it is a nod to the Patty Duke Show of course, I have recently discovered the splicing was mainly because Lecy Goranson (original Becky) had scheduling conflicts. She was attending University at the time, which is the reason she left the show in the first place. This is also why she was brought back for only a few episodes here and there through out the remaining seasons of Roseanne. Another rumor about the "splicing incident" is Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke (new Becky) didn't get along and both refused to do the scene with each other. I guess both girls thought of themselves as the TRUE Becky. I personally think that no one could have replaced Lecy Goranson, she was and always will be the one and only Becky Conner.

Ok DanaMac your post makes no sense. Two actresses could easily be on screen at the same time. It would be impossible for ONE actress to be on screen at the same time. However this is all a moot point since the splicing was done on purpose.

Not exactly sure what you meant on that little rant there, DanaMac, as it'd be very easy for *two* different actresses to play *one* role at the same time (a role doesn't have numerical limitations. For example, 20 people could play ALF at the same time if there was a need for that sort of thing). Sara and Lecy could have easily been on screen at the same time playing Becky; the joke, which went over the head of the poster here, was a reference to the Patty Duke show (the whole scene is a parody), where Patty duke played both Cathy and Patty, sometimes appearing onscreen at the same time with bad splicing (it was the 60s, after all). Roseanne (the show) was pretty witty with that sort of humor.

WTF??? I don't get this at all!!! The actress's foot just fell off??? Did she have a bloody nub or anything? And your comment about how the scene "should not have been spliced together"... How else do you propose that they film a scene with two different actresses playing one role!?! Would you rather the two girls alternate running onto the set, saying a line and then runnning off the set??? This post makes absolutely no sense.
