"Dynasty: Oil (#1.1)" (1981)
Blake Carrington: Of course. I forgot. The American Psychiatric Association has decided that it's no longer a disease. That's too bad; I could have endowed a foundation. The Steven Carrington Institute for the Treatment and Study of Faggotry. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to go get married.

Blake Carrington: Not like your cramped quarters here, huh?

Blake Carrington: [to Steven] Oh, so you decided you needed more schooling, huh? Exactly how much Keats and Shelley does a 24-year old man need anyway?

"Dynasty: Krystle's Lie (#1.7)" (1981)
Blake Carrington: Well, let me tell you something about friends, Krystle. My friends.
[sighs]
Blake Carrington: In this business, your only friend is a dead enemy. The minute you hit the ground, these friends would turn on you like a pack of hungry dogs.

Dr. Nick Toscanni: [menacingly] For this I would have come all the way back from Hell.
Blake Carrington: What are you talking about?
Dr. Nick Toscanni: I'm talking about you and my brother Gianni... Farouk Ahmed told me. He told me, Blake, that you were in that miserable country when my brother was arrested and that my brother sent you a personal plea for help which you ignored!
Blake Carrington: Don't you understand? Ahmed is lying!
Dr. Nick Toscanni: You ignored him!
[Nick lunges at Blake and knocks him off his horse, both men fall to the ground fighting]
Dr. Nick Toscanni: You ignored it... because it would have jeopardized your lousy oil deal!
[he strikes Blake in the face]
Blake Carrington: [Blake falls and gets up] I told you... everything I told you is the truth! I was in Indonesia when that cable came about your brother dying... and I was in the country when your brother was arrested!
Dr. Nick Toscanni: And you didn't lift a finger to help him, you lying son of a...
[Blake ducks Nick's swing and flips him over, then gets him in a choke hold]
Blake Carrington: I couldn't help your brother... I had no power to intervene! I did call the State Department to try and get them to reduce his sentence. I had no way of knowing he was going to hang himself!
Dr. Nick Toscanni: You lie!
[Nick knocks Blake back off of him... both resume fighting]
Blake Carrington: Now you listen to me... I'm sick and tired of your insane need to blame somebody else for your brother's death. Face the fact... he was no innocent victim, he was involved with drugs! Now you listen to me once and for all, you leave me and my family alone!
[he mounts his horse and rides off, a snake spooks the horse and dumps Blake from it, causing him to tumble down the hill. Nick happens upon Blake and does nothing to help]

Dr. Nick Toscanni: Ah.
[shrugs and smiles]
Dr. Nick Toscanni: You know me, Blake. You grow up with Italian operas... lots of passion... big emotions.
Blake Carrington: [nods again] How about revenge? Now that's a big emotion. I know how that feels. The overwhelming need to pay back a man who's ruined your life.
Dr. Nick Toscanni: [interrupting] Wait a minute, Blake. Did you get me up here to talk about the guy who threw the bomb?
Blake Carrington: [shakes head] No, not my revenge. Yours... against me.
Dr. Nick Toscanni: [guardedly] What the hell are you talking about? Huh? Where'd you get this weird idea?
Blake Carrington: Weird? I've checked into your family background. I know all about your half-brother, Gianni Mulhany. I know that you blame me for his death.
