: [about Miss Ellie
] She's desperate to see you, Gary. Gary Ewing
: I'm sorry, Valene. She'd just drag me right back into that family. Valene Ewing
: No, no, no, she said she wouldn't. Gary Ewing
: Yes she would! She's a lady who thinks family. She can't think any other way.
Miss Ellie Ewing Farlow
: After the funeral, I want you to go back to California, to your own life. Bobby was Bobby, but you are you, and I don't want you to think that you have to stay here and try to take his place. Gary Ewing
: Oh, I could never take his place... but I could be here for you. Miss Ellie Ewing Farlow
: And if I thought that you would be happy here, that would be wonderful. But you can't live your life as a replacement for Bobby. You're my son, and I love you with all my heart, but we don't have to be together to keep that love. Gary Ewing
: No, I guess we don't. Miss Ellie Ewing Farlow
: You've been through a lot, Gary. I can feel a strength in you that you've never had before. Well, for the next few days, I'm going to need that strength. J.R. and Sue Ellen, Jenna, little Charlie, they're all in pain. They all need me. So for a while, I'm gonna lean on Clayton, and on you, because I know you'll be there. Gary Ewing
: It's about time, Mama. It's about time.
: Daddy, I was just telling mamma that, since neither of you got married again, you both must still be carrying torches. Gary Ewing
: Oh, you see, if I carried a torch I'd have blown myself up a dozen times from all the alcohol on my breath.
