'Roseanne' Episode Honors Late Cast Member Who OD'd At Age 32

Glenn Quinn and his character Mark are gone but not forgotten in the reboot's latest installment.

Tuesday’s episode of “Roseanne” paid respects to the sitcom’s past, recalling the character played by the late actor Glenn Quinn, according to reports.

Quinn’s Mark Healy was Becky Conner’s boyfriend and then husband on the original show, which concluded in 1997. Quinn died in 2002 from an accidental heroin overdose at age 32. 

In Tuesday’s storyline, Becky (Lecy Goranson) learned her chances of getting pregnant were slim after a visit to the doctor. She later remarked to Darlene (Sara Gilbert) that she and Mark had been trying to conceive and that she hadn’t been able to “find anyone as good” since he died. Darlene then tried to persuade her to move on, explaining that it wasn’t a betrayal to Mark.

 “As long as @RoseanneOnABC is on Glenn Quinn is part of it,” he wrote.
