The Conners' Halloween Episode Questions

 OK, here are my questions from the Conners' Halloween episode:

1. If they were going to be evicted last week, where did they get the money to buy elaborate Halloween costumes and props?

2. Doesn't Mary have any black relatives and why don't they pitch in and keep her company while her Dad DJ has to work so hard and stay late at his job? It seems her mother's side of the family isn't involved in her life at all. How does she feel about Black Lives Matter and living in a white household?

3. What is this new job DJ has and how did he get promoted so fast? Wasn't he begging for work and trying to set a motorcycle repair business with his dad going just a few months ago?

4. Does Ben, Darlene's boyfriend, have a job? Didn't they both decide they can't get their dumb true-crime magazine going in the time of COVID, so shouldn't Ben be looking for work? And is David still paying child support?

5. Dan still hasn't figured out that Emilio is living illegally in the Lunch Box?

6. Why doesn't Darlene write a blog to satisfy her creative writing urges?

7. If Darlene, Ben, and Becky had no money last week, how could they pay rent to Dan to save the family from being evicted?

8. The election was only three days away in the episode and nobody says who they are voting for. How come? They were all over the primary in a live episode and the 2016 election nearly split the family up (Roseanne and Jackie didn't speak to each other for months), so how come they're not talking about it except in generalities with Dan and Darlene's Big Issues Debate to cap the episode.
