This month we have a double dip! Benny Sago and Dan Kennicott.

1976: Freshly kicked out of her latest boarding school, Brooke arrived in Pine Valley for a supposedly short visit with her Aunt Phoebe. An unsuspecting Phoebe was fooled into believing her niece was a nice, polite girl. The arrival of Brooke's ruffian, motorcycle-riding boyfriend, Benny Sago, displeased the blue-blooded Aunt Phoebe. She turned up her nose at low-class Benny and encouraged Brooke to date a clean-cut young man named Dan Kennicott. Brooke decided to toy around with both men by leading Dan around by the nose and making Benny jealous in the process. Why not enjoy both men?! The girl just wanted to have fun!!!

Brooke and Dan enjoy an amorous dip in Aunt Phoebe's swimming pool.

Julia Barr says, "I still remember the time that Brooke went for a romantic skinny dip with her boyfriend, Dan Kennicott, in Aunt Phoebe's pool. That sizzling scene may have looked provocative on the air, but it was freezing in the water. After four hours in an unheated pool, we ended up saying lines like, 'Isn't this w-w-wonderful?" From "The Complete Family Scrapbook". Edit

From The Complete Family Scrapbook:
"Brooke laughed when she told Benny Sago her aunt thought she was an angel. They both knew better. Benny had followed Brooke to Pine Valley. He was a ruffian with dirt under his fingernails, and Phoebe had instantly turned up her nose at him. She encouraged Brooke to date the clean-cut Dan Kennicott, and Brooke didn't mind. Dan was a pushover, and she could lead him around by the nose and use him to make Benny jealous."

Benny and his bookie, Harry, played by Robert Morse.
