Episode Quotes

Kristin Shepard: I need a little time to think. Can you understand that?
J.R. Ewing: I'm not exactly a patient man.
J.R. Ewing: If you don't wanna fight Cliff Barnes, just tell me. Just come out and say so.
Bobby Ewing: Look, I'm as commited as you are to getting Cliff Barnes out of office but it doesn't entail a daily trip to Austin. Unless you're trying to cover up something down here. And I'm not talking about your considerable attention to your wife's sister.
J.R. Ewing: [J.R. has just been flirting with Kristen when Sue Ellen comes out in a bathing suit] Sue Ellen? Pretty hot out here. Maybe we ought to go back upstairs.
Sue Ellen Ewing: Oh?
J.R. Ewing: Yeah, it's early yet. We got plenty of time before I have to go to work.
Sue Ellen Ewing: [gives him an ice-cold look] I love your sudden urges, J.R. They're almost as romantic as, eh, your daddy's pet bull.


  • Goof (continuity error): In Kristen's condo bedroom, J.R. is seen (in the mirror's reflection) moving forward from the doorway. When the angle changes to J.R. himself, he makes the same move again.
