the fact that Becky was being a bitch, only shows how realistic this show was. I had the best father in the world, and being a rebellious teen I can remember making my father cry on two occasions. I regret those moments and I hate myself for being the bitchy brat that I was. Being a teen, you think you know it all, you think 'Daddy' is supposed to step aside for you and "the love of your life." If I had listened to my dad, I would have ended up with a sports car instead of a husband (ex-husband now) who abused me. Man, Dads always know best. If kids on sitcom were always "nice and sweet" like the Brady Bunch or Full House, it would be so unrealistic. It makes me gag thinking of those 'sugar-coated' shows. I like realism. Becky also was good and she made a bad decision in choosing Mark.

I felt bad for Dan, even though Dan wasn't the perfect father. Let me rephrase that there's no perfect father, but Dan tried his best to keep his family happy.I think all of that stress had let up to his heart problems. Which made him have that heart attack later down the line when Darlene & David got married. I think deep down, he feels responsible for what happened between Becky&Mark & I don't think he really got over it,but he tolerated it, notice the episode when he called Becky up at the end of the show.

Thank you! My sentiments exactly. I was a hellacious brat of a teenager and I said similar cruel things to my own parents. The writers were showing reality -- not all teens are pleasant, sweet, and love their family more than anything else in life. In fact, I'd bet that most of them are more like Becky than not.

Just think about a teenager who has found the first person that they truly *LOVE* (and not in a family way) and you believe your father is the reason you may never see him again. To me, though her words were harsh, it was an understandable reaction for a teenager. The short time that the average person is a teen is one of the most passionate, anger-filled times of our lives. It's understandable that Becky would be more concerned about losing Mark "forever" than her parent's finanances at this juncture.

Hell, I would have been surprised if she *HADN'T* had the reaction she did.

I couldn't agree more. This is a great example of why this show although totally fictional is very accurate with a lot of its themes. This was one of Lecy's better performance too.
