Bold and the Beautiful Update Friday, May 12, 2000 by Stephanie
CJ wants to know what is going on? He asks if it is about the baby? Amber says no, the baby is fine. She says it is intense and they should wait for Becky. CJ asks if it is about Becky’s parents? Amber says they are fine. CJ “So no one died, but it has to do with Becky, that’s why you want her here, right?” He wants them to tell him what it is. Stephanie says it is very difficult but it does have everything to do with Becky.

Darla and Clarke talk about Becky. Clarke says Becky is unwell. Darla asks if she is sick? Clarke says it is more than that.
Amber asks CJ if he remembers Becky going for her physical? He says he does. She explains that the Doctor called wanting to speak with Becky, she wasn’t home so Amber pretended to be her. CJ can’t believe it. Amber says she took Becky for the tests that the Doctor ordered and when the results came back, she went in Becky’s place again to get them. CJ wants to know why she did that? Amber says because Becky has been so happy, she has him, the baby, everything. CJ asks about the results. Amber says it is pretty bad. CJ “Tell me what it is right now!” Sally “CJ, she has cancer.” CJ is stunned “No.” “No.” CJ says he just spent two days with her in Santa Barbara. She had a little upset stomach. Stephanie says the pain is a symptom of the illness. Sally says she knows this is hard for him to accept. CJ asks if they had a second opinion? Eric says he showed the results to several top specialists and they all agreed. CJ insists they were wrong! CJ says if she were ill, he would know. He says he knows everything about her. Sally says this is a nightmare and a tragedy but he has to accept that this beautiful young girl has a terrible illness. He must accept it and deal with it. For Becky’s sake, he must! CJ is in a state of shock. He says, “Ok, Becky has cancer.” “We can deal with it.” “What kind?” Eric “Pancreatic.” Stephanie says that is the reason she has stomach pains. Amber says she was putting her pain pills in her smoothies. CJ can’t believe Amber didn’t tell Becky the truth. Amber says she couldn’t tell her. CJ asks about treatment for Becky, chemotherapy, something? Eric says the cancer is too far advanced. Stephanie says it is spreading throughout her. Amber says it is too late. CJ “No, wait…are you guys telling me there is no hope?” Sally “That’s what we are saying.” “She only has a couple of months.” CJ (crying) “Becky is going to die in a couple of months?” Sally nods. CJ “Oh God.” “Tell me it’s a mistake please.” “Not Becky, not now.” “Amber?” (Amber holds CJ, sobbing.)
Later, CJ “Are you sure there is nothing that can be done?” Eric “I am afraid not.” Sally “All we can do is make her as comfortable as possible.” (CJ holds the baby) Sally “If this is too much for you, we can tell Becky.” CJ “No, I will tell Becky!” Sally “Then we will be here.” CJ “No, I will tell her alone.” Eric “You are sure?” CJ “She will be here any time now, I don’t want you here when she comes.” Stephanie “Ok.” (They all leave except Amber.) Amber is ready to leave; CJ says, “Wait.” (He hands her the baby.) (Kisses him on the forehead.) Amber in tears, leaves the apartment.

Clarke comes in with a glass of water for Darla. Darla can’t believe Becky has cancer. She wonders why Becky? Clarke says he has been asking himself the same question. Darla says she is such a good person. Clarke agrees completely. Darla is not sure what this will do to CJ? Clarke says he is scared for CJ. Darla “I’m so sorry.” Clarke “We all are.” (Clarke holds Darla as she cries.)
CJ is alone, trying not to cry. Becky comes in, carrying her back of medicine. CJ quickly slips the bottles of pills he is holding into his pockets. Becky says “Hey you.” (She kisses him.) “I went to church.” CJ “You did?” Becky “I wanted to talk to the “big guy” to thank him for all of my blessings.” Becky “Where is the baby?” CJ “Amber took him for a walk.” Becky “Oh well, maybe I can catch them.” (She heads for the door) CJ is staring at her. Becky “CJ what’s the matter?”
