Krystle: Alexis is a very complex woman, who seems to inspire passion in people. You either love her or you hate her. And she seems to enjoy it either way.
Krystle: Blake, you have a great talent for knowing where oil is and how to get it out.
Dex: So therefore I figured we could break breadsticks together and talk about what really goes on behind closed doors.
Alexis: That's what closed doors are for to keep out the curious.
Alexis: I don't care whether your relationship with Dex is personal or professional, Dex is mine, in the boardroom and in the bedroom.
Lady Ashley Mitchell: Bought and paid for, Alexis?
Alexis: I've never had to pay for it, Ashley. Have you?
Alexis: [while trapped in a burning cabin with Krystle] This is all your fault! Everytime you come into my life something terrible happens to me!
Tracy Kendall: [to Alexis] Why don't YOU sleep with him? I hear that's your specialty. And don't bother saying, "You"re fired, Miss Kendall" - because Miss Kendall just quit.
Fallon: We were all out. Scattered. Like big old pin-rubies looking for their lost setting.
D.A. Jake Dunham: Where did you meet?
Stephen: We were at a party.
D.A. Jake Dunham: What kind of a party?
Stephen: I - I don't understand the question.
D.A. Jake Dunham: Well, was it a gay party? Gay, not as in happy, but as in homosexual.
[Everyone laughs uproariously]
D.A. Jake Dunham: The intent of the question was not to amuse! The intent was to get a direct answer from the witness!
Stephen: No! It was not a GAY party. It was a reception after an art opening.
Krystle: Half the people in Denver have a motive for wanting to destroy Alexis.
Krystle: [to Alexis] I love your desk. The tusks, they're so you.
Dominique Deveraux: Alexis, I didn't thank you for your present.
Dominique Deveraux: [she slaps Alexis]
Alexis: [rubbing her newly slapped cheek] It is he you should slap, my dear... not I.
Alexis: [to Krystle] I just can't wait for the day when I see you walking out of this house carrying the same two cheap plastic suitcases that you walked in here with.
Alexis: Dominique. Wasn't there a singing nun by that name?
Dominique Deveraux: If there was, you'd better start praying to her.
Dex: Where are you going?
Alexis: Home. Nobody takes me to the cleaners and to bed in the same day, Mr. Dexter. Good night.
Adam: You're not going to like having me as an enemy.
Blake: It couldn't be worse than having you as a son.
Dominique Deveraux: Alexis!
Alexis: What do you want?
Dominique Deveraux: I've heard you don't care for my singing.
Alexis: That's right. It's the truth that hurts.
Dominique Deveraux: The truth? I hope you say that when I sue you in court for libel.
Alexis: Oh, you'd only make a fool of yourself, Dominique. Everyone knows you're nothing but a... second-rate lounge act.
Dominique Deveraux: I don't care what you say to my face, you viper! Retract this or I'll cram it down your throat!
Alexis: Will you?
[slaps newspaper out of Dominique's hand]
Dominique Deveraux: [after a viscous catfight] Anytime... anytime you want more of the same, I'll be waiting for you!
Alexis: And I'll be waiting for you to tell the world what a no-talent has-been you are!
Alexis: You're at somebody else's mercy now. You're finally getting a taste of your own medicine- and when it becomes to bitter for you, when you start to cough and choke on it, then you'll be back, to accept the only offer that I'm ever going to make! I have an appointment Blake. You know the way out.
Alexis: You're so terribly out of touch Blake. So terribly misguided in your thinking. My company can afford to plant daisies in that acerage. So I'm afraid that my offer for your process is zero.
Blake: Don't you try to bluff me Alexis.
Alexis: I don't have to bluff you Blake. Gone are the days when you were king of my fate, when you exiled me from my children and threw me out of Denver.
Alexis: I know what's wrong with you... The empty armed Madonna, mourning the baby that she couldn't have and the baby that she almost got to adopt... Gone now... That is it, isn't it?
Krystle: You miserable bitch!
[Pushes Alexis into a nearby pond and they both fall in]
Alexis: [With a basktet of cut roses] I-I had uh, Tony cut these for me for a still life that I'm planning to paint.
Blake: No need to apologize and no need to lie either Alexis.
Blake: Tony has the day off. Paul is handeling the gardens.
Alexis: Oh, Blake... In the good times, and there were alot of good times, you use to forgive me my fibs... I mean, my little fibs.
Dex: You have managed to say no every time we've met. You said no to Tar Sands. You said no to dinner.
Alexis: Well, you seem to thrive on rejection.
Dex: Unless we make a deal now, in another five minutes, the offer goes to 70-30. If I were you, I would take advantage of the sale price.
Alexis: Oh, I never buy anything on sale, Mr. Dexter.
Dominique Deveraux: I almost felt... sorry for you.
Alexis: Hmm. Save your pity, Dominique. You're going to need it for yourself.
Krystle: [to exhausted Alexis after their first catfight] If you want a rematch, just whistle! If you can!
Amanda Bedford Carrington: Well, whatever it is, maybe I can give him something you never could.
Alexis: And what, pray, is that? Immaturity, post-adolescent passion? Take it from me Dex loves real women not pale imitations.
Blake: [to Alexis about their marriage] Your affairs were about as private as a circus.
Neal McVane: Alexis. Well, I'm glad to see you're still among us.
Alexis: Are you?
Neal McVane: I'm not really glad, you understand. But it is the civilized thing to say, isn't it?
Dex: Ooh, the suspicious Mrs. Colby. Sleep with a man but don't ever trust him.
Alexis: I'm sorry to disappoint you Neal but if you came here to see me squirm, you're out of the cab fare that it took you to get here. Or did you have to walk?
Alexis: I've come to make peace, Blake.
Blake: Oh, really? Did you check your hatchet with my secretary outside?
Alexis: Why did you buy my hotel?
Sable Colby: But that's what Pavilian Resorts does, darling. It acquires run-down properties that have been poorly maintained, like yourself.
Alexis: Funny. Your husband, the one who dumped you for your younger sister, didn't find me poorly maintained.
Sable Colby: Don't flatter yourself. You never had a relationship with Jason.
Alexis: Actually, you're right. That's true. It was more like... a fling. But it was terribly romantic. He was mad about me. Remember?
Alexis: You are so amazingly vindictive. Did you really buy this entire hotel just to evict me?
Sable Colby: Of course not, darling. Getting rid of you is just part of the UPgrading process.
Sable Colby: Alexis goes through men like they were cheeses with an expiration date.
Sable Colby: Hello, Alexis. Glad to see you've uh... sobered up.
Alexis: And now my hangover's arrived.
Alexis: [Alexis standing by the ladies' room] Krystle. The typing pool's on the first floor, are you lost?
Krystle: I always know where I belong, Alexis. But that's the ladies' room. Are you lost?
Alexis: I'm not much of a one for one-night stands.
Creighton Boyd: Actually, I'll be in Paris at least two nights.
Dex: You certainly make the rounds, don't you?
Joanna Sills: Twist and turns, Dex. I never promised you anything else.
Dex: I'm surprised you don't have a check in your hand. But then again, maybe you let Adam put it someplace more personal.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: [to Alexis] What's the matter? Didn't one tramp hear what the other tramp just said?
Krystle: [to Blake as she's leaving him] And don't bother calling one of the servants. I haven't forgotten how to carry my own bags.
Dex: Well, now that we know we have something in common we can do business together.
Alexis: I don't like the word "common," Mr. Dexter.
Monica Colby: Oh, Joanna, how are you?
Joanna Sills: Hello, Monica. Here to replace me, are you?
Monica Colby: [scoffs] I think one of us needs to go out and come in again.
Morgan Hess: [to Alexis] You know something lady. You inspire revenge.
Jeff Colby: [to Adam] God, help your family. Because I think they actually love you.
Fallon: Sammy Jo was common trash. Everybody knows it.
Stephen: Common trash. And what are you, Fallon? Uncommon trash? A million-dollar tramp?
Steven Carrington: [in court fighting for his right to raise his son] I won't answer that. What he's asking in essence is if I'm guilty of being gay. Well, nobody, not my father's lawyer, not you, not anybody in this courtroom or outside of it has the right to ask this because there is no guilt in that issue. Everybody in this state and in this country has the right to live his own life the way he wants. Provided that he's a decent human-being, isn't a man entitled to raise his own child whether he's homosexual or not? I am and will always be Danny's father. And a good one no matter what my lifestyle is.
Jeff Colby: Well, there's a chance he could lose Denver-Carrington. That means I'd lose my share.
Fallon: And I could lose La Mirage. So, we'll all be losers for a while. We'll just have to live off Mom.
Dominique Deveraux: Alexis, you are many things. A "sister" is not one of them.
Daniel Reece: [in reference to Krystle] I have a rule. I never go after anything that can't be taken.
Krystle: Oh, Blake, I wasn't born rich. And I'm still not all that comfortable being rich.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: You'll never get Clay, Amanda. He wants a real woman. Not a plastic excuse for one.
Krystle: What are you talking about?
Alexis: I'm talking about a woman who has done everything in her power to alienate my daughter from me. Namely you.
Krystle: Alienate? That's a word they invented for you, Alexis.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: In case you've forgotten Danny is my son.
Alexis: Yes, I know. Poor little thing. That's a cross he'll just have to bear. Excuse me.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: I can't really blame Steven for moving out on you and taking Danny. At least I know you won't be able to contaminate my child with your conniving and your lying and your dirty ways.
Alexis: [laughs] Dirt seems to be the big word in your vocabulary, Sammy Jo. You grew up on the road with racing cars and dirt. You modeled through all those dirty magazines. You're covered in it.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: If that were true all I would need is a bath. But with your track record Alexis what you need to do is stand naked in a rainstorm. For a week.
Alexis: [scoffs] You trashy little tramp!
[attempts to slap but Sammy Jo catches her hand]
Ben Carrington: If you don't like it. Quit.
Adam: And make life easier for you? You must be kidding?
Dex: Alexis and I have a corporation.
Mark Jennings: That's right, Dex-Lex or Lex-Dex. Never can remember which one of you is on top.
Dex: [after catching Alexis with another man] And I told you I hadn't slept with any type after I'd met you.
Alexis: So what?
Dex: After I'd fallen in love with you. Except I didn't know that what I'd fallen for was a SLUT! A slut with the morals of a dog in perpetual heat.
[Alexis slaps him and he slaps her back]
Alexis: [shouting as Dex leaves her] You overrated cowboy. You thought you owned me? Well, nobody owns Alexis!
Alexis: [as Sable is being restrained from attacking her] Look at her. She's like a rabid bitch.
Dr. Nick Toscanni: In the beginning, maybe there was...
Krystle: There was what?
Dr. Nick Toscanni: I don't know, some such notion...
Krystle: Notion? You call trying to seduce a man's wife a notion? What kind of a man are you?
Krystle: You wanna know the truth about Nick and me? I'll make it easy on you. Yes, I was attracted to him.
Blake: You were attracted to him.
Krystle: But I fought it.
Blake: But you fought it.
Krystle: Yes, it wasn't easy, I'll admit that. But...
Blake: But what?
Krystle: But I never forgot I was your wife.
Fallon: That's kind of a dumb question.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: Well, it comes from kind of a dumb girl, doesn't it? I mean, isn't that what you still think of me?
Fallon: Look, I'm giving the party because I love my brother. I just figured you might wanna be there with him. So don't bother RSVPing.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: What's that mean?
Fallon: Oh, nothing. I just made it up.
Alexis: [both sipping champagne] Where is the frownless charmer that I threw pillows at all those years ago?
Cecil Colby: When you were as incredible-looking as you are now.
Alexis: Oh, two sips and listen to you.
Jeff Colby: Oh, my God. A woman who doesn't even wanna see her own baby? I mean, what kind of a monster are you?
Fallon: I'm me.
Alexis: But I want you to know that I forgive you, Krystle. Particularly about that little contretemps in my studio.
Krystle: In my world, we call it a fight. A good, dirty, no-holds barred catfight.
Alexis: Hello, Sammy Jo. I'm afraid that your maid let me in because I had lied and said I was a friend of yours.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: Well, that's a very big lie.
Alexis: [seeing Dex and Dominique in an embrace] Well, I always knew where you kept your conscious.
Clay Fallmont: What do you know about the nuts and bolts of engineering?
Leslie Carrington: The nuts come easy.
Andrew Laird: You know, Fallon? Most little girls realize by the age of six that they can't grow up and marry their daddies.
[Fallon attempts to slap him]
Andrew Laird: Friends shouldn't fight.
Fallon: You're right. Bye, Andy.
[kisses his cheek]
Blake: And what did you tell the police, congressman?
Neal McVane: Well, I told them that I had made up my mind to kill Alexis. To either choke her or deposit a bullet in her conniving brain. Tit for tat for ruining me politically.
Tracy Kendall: Well, it just so happens that "ambition" is not a dirty word in my dictionary.
Alexis: Nine months, are you pregnant?
Krystle: Thank you.
Alexis: Not that it's all that special. I mean, even worms can procreate.
