One Of the Best Episodes of the entire series run.This episode Sums up the Ewing family perfectly. I am always deeply touched when I watch this episode.I think that the writing is excellent.I think that the actors did a great job. This episode has more depth than probably any other episode ever for this show. The layers of complexity of emotions and the struggles that go on in families is right on the mark.I highly recommend this episode. Enjoy and keep your emotions in check if you can.This is the saddest episode of the entire series run in my opinion. I think anyone who does not feel something when watching must have as cold a heart as Jr.Ewing himself.
