I don't trust you either. I don't take kindly to a married man making a play for my daughter.
Sen. Cash Cassidy:
Stay out of this - it's none of your business.
My family is my business. If I ever see you touch her again, you won't be able to run far enough or fast enough. If you don't believe me - *boy* - you ask your father what it's like to cross me.

An unsuccessful attempt of an 80's prime-time soap spin-off.
This show was a direct spin-off from one of the hottest prime-time soaps in the 1980's, "DYNASTY". "DALLAS" found success with its spin-off, "KNOTS LANDING", so why not "DYNASTY"? Unfortunately, this show traipsed in all-too familiar territory that the viewer found this to be just like every other prime-time soap that was on at the time.
The big draw-card for this show was enlisting big one-time movie stars such as Charlton Heston, Barbara Stanwyck, Katharine Ross and Ricardo Montalban. I confess that I'm glad this show was cancelled after two seasons because it was painful to see the above four actors stooping so low as to sign on to and appear in this trash, and especially one as bad as this. Just like Ava Gardner was to "Knots Landing", Jane Wyman to "Falcon's Crest" and even Anne Baxter to "Hotel", their talent was above par for them to star in shows like this.
If you get the Soap Network Channel, you can actually catch re-runs of The Colbys. Stick to "Dynasty" folks - at least the cat-fights were better!
