At some point before 1987, the family vacationed by a lake where Becky caught a lung infection and both parents were terrified that Becky was going to die but she pulled through.
Becky was definitely the opposite to her sister; a bookworm who retained her femininity whilst at the same time being something of a feminist like her mother.
However, both ultimately defied expectations-Becky eloped when she was 17 to Mark Healy (someone Roseanne did not approve of) and faced several hectic years whereas Darlene was accepted early at an arts college in Chicago and found a stable romance with David, Mark's younger brother-although she eventually became pregnant and married David at age 19. didn’t have much of a relationship as they were 6 years apart and Becky resented having to ferry her brother everywhere around Lanford.
Becky was Darlene's bridesmaid at her wedding and was there for her when Darlene went into early labor, almost losing her baby. She always considered him weird,confirmed when she found the box of doll heads under his bed.
Subsequent to their marriage, they have fights more often than David and Darlene,their younger siblings (and siblings-in-law); however, they only split up once, for a very short time.
