And as dumb as it was, I laughed heartily at Lecy Goranson’s line reading about how her family members have all been meaning to try a pear. Of all the lines of dialogue in the doubled-up premiere that nutshell-reflected the Conner family with precision, this made the top three.
Speaking with Today, Lecy Goranson shared why, even though she was the one chosen to reprise the role of Becky, she wanted to also get Sarah Chalke back for the revival.
I wanted them to bring back both of us — not as Becky. But I thought it would be fun for the fans to see us together. I mean there was that one episode where we did a Patty Duke thing together and dressed alike. But we didn’t get a chance to be in the same place on the same stage, and it was really, really fun. I mean Sarah’s a trip. She’s good times. And we both have a lot of energy and we both like to laugh. It was a sheer delight working with her.
Viewers will get to see a lot more of that laughter-filled energy when airs Tuesday nights on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET. Check out how the show explained David and Mark’s absences, as well as how David and Darlene are expected to reunite.
