Bobby Ewing: [after telling Jock he wants out of Ewing Oil] I want out! I almost did something today that I never would have been able to forgive myself for.
J.R. Ewing: Almost? That mean you didn't sign with Westar Oil?
Bobby Ewing: So you know about Westar, do you? Well, I can't say I'm too surprised.
J.R. Ewing: Well, Bobby... I built Ewing Oil into a power because I knew everything that was happening in Dallas. I still do. That's how you run a successful business.
Bobby Ewing: Well, maybe you're right. And maybe you can't care for the people.
[turns to Jock]
Bobby Ewing: I wanted to run this company on the up and up, Daddy. Only after awhile, the deals became more important than the people. I was borrowing from Peter to pay Paul, all the time pretending it was for the right reasons. And then I realized, after a while, that you can only lie to yourself just so long... that I could pretend that whatever was good for Ewing Oil was all right, but it's not. It's not all right for me.
J.R. Ewing: Well, if you didn't sign with Westar, that means you blew the deal with Jordan Lee and the cartel. And on top of that, we still owe them $12 million, money we don't have.
Jock Ewing: Is that true, Bobby? Did you go back on your word with the cartel?
Bobby Ewing: I hate to disappoint you, J.R. But we're just fine with the cartel.
[turns back to Jock]
Bobby Ewing: I phoned Jordan Lee and I told him why I couldn't go in on the deal with him. Then I put him together with Nick Hammond, Hammond Oil? Nick agreed to take over our part of the investment completely, with the blessing of the cartel.
Bobby Ewing: We're in real solid with 'em, Daddy. Till they find out J.R.'s back.
J.R. Ewing: You're crazy, Bobby. You lost us millions of dollars.
Bobby Ewing: Well, I'm sure you'll find a way to get it back. You're very good at that sort of thing. A lot better than I wanna be.
[Bobby walks out]
J.R. Ewing: Well, if that don't tear the rag off the bush. He almost bankrupts us, he leaves, and I gotta cover his tail. I tell you!
Jock Ewing: Just what are you talkin' about, J.R.? Nothing wrong with the company! We got a refinery we didn't have before, plenty of product. We're even back in with the cartel. I'm proud of the way Bobby acted. He showed people that the Ewing name stands for something! He's a hell of a son! And a hell of a man!
Jock Ewing: Miss Ellie, I have some wonderful news for you.
Miss Ellie Ewing: [noncommittal] Do you?
Jock Ewing: I do. Bobby's giving the business back to J.R. and staying on at Southfork.
[she gives him a stony stare]
Jock Ewing: Well, I thought that would make you very happy.
Miss Ellie Ewing: Do you think I care who's running Ewing Oil? Don't you understand what's happened?
Jock Ewing: [bewildered, shrugging] Miss Ellie, I don't have the slightest idea of what you're talking about!
Miss Ellie Ewing: My son Gary. I've lost him forever. Now that your Ray Krebbs is running Southfork, Gary will never be back. There's no place left for him.
Jock Ewing: [sighs] It's what Gary wants.
Miss Ellie Ewing: And now Ray Krebbs, who hasn't one drop of Southworth blood in him, is running my daddy's ranch. You know how much Gary's coming back meant to me. I'll never forgive you for what you've done to him... and to me. You and Ray Krebbs.
[she walks off]
