Perhaps because Becky is a saint compared to Darlene? Darlene constantly mouthed off to everyone, and yeah, that included her mother. She practically made a career out of it. Becky at least had the capabilities of being polite when she wanted to. And you know what else was great about Becky? She got good grades, didn't get into trouble regularly at school, married a nice man in David (and yeah, I'm going by the finale). All things that can't be said about Darlene. Becky also did her chores and regularly watched after her younger siblings. And how do her parents pay her back for it? By leading her to believe they had a college fund set aside for her (the brightest of the children) and then splurging it on the bike shop (that failed by the way, thank you very much).

Meanwhile, she had to watch as her bratty kid sister fell backwards into being offered a high paying job, getting a college scholarship all the while continuing to make poor decisions in life, not the least of which was the horrible way she treated everyone in her life.

Maybe if Becky whined too much, it was because Dan was focusing what little attention he bothered to give his kids on Darlene. He spent one day with Becky at the mall and acted like it was the hugest inconvenience that could have befallen him.

So yeah, contemplate those items for awhile.

I'm sorry, but Becky was in no way a saint. She made one stupid thing after another, like getting drunk when she was only fourteen, and running off to get married instead of finding a way to go to College without a fund (just like many people have to do in real life). And yes, I found her constant whining extremely annoying. Say what you want about Darlene, and I agree that she often was a smart mouth. But it seemed she was the one with the brain, no matter what the school grades said. She found a way to get an education and stay with her boyfriend at the same time, while the supposedly brighter student Becky almost threw her future away, just because her parents didn't hand her everything on a silver platter. Darlene was a far more interesting person, if you ask me. She had the guts to be different and think outside the box, while Becky was a prissy girly-girl cry-baby.

I don't condone underage drinking, but it's extremely common. She got drunk once, paid for it, and never did it again. When it came to smart-mouthing, Darlene did it all the time and never got in trouble with her parents for it. Becky mouthed off to Roseanne once, when she got real specific about where she was that afternoon (which didn't involved any nefarious activity) and Roseanne grounded her for like 2 weeks.

Becky got good grades in subjects across the board. Darlene had *one* talent, and managed to luck out, get a scholarship and promise of a high-paying job, not to mention have a boyfriend that withstood all of her verbal abuse. She did little to deserve any of that.

Becky also didn't taunt Dj the way Darlene did. Yeah, she had her moments, but she was by far the more disciplined and smarter of the two and got treated crappily in return, while Darlene never did anything except be a smart mouth and had many things handed to her on a silver platter.

Darlene committed one of the most atrocious acts ever by sabotaging the Lunch Box. It's what helped put clothes on her back and a roof over her head.

Yeah, many people do have to pay for college on their own. I was one of them. But Dan and Roseanne could have at least had the decency to not let Becky believe there was some huge college fund for her.

Okay, I'm not saying that Darlene was some perfect saint either. And I'm sure that she too made her mistakes (even though I must have missed the episode, where she had sabotaged the Lunch Box). But in the end, I still prefer her over Becky.

I tend to agree with you on this one. I never quite "got" why Darlene was downright rude and catty towards Molly Tilden when she moved in next door. This was before she tried flirting with David from memory. Was Darlene that insecure that David would stray from her?

On the topic of the Motorbike Shop - Ziggy was a straight out loser who hadn't grown up. He was still stuck in 1968 somewhere instead of acting like a responsible adult. Funnily enough there's actually people like this out there in real life! lol.
