John Ross Ewing:
[after JR appears screwed by Cliff because he sold Ewing Oil to Bobby and Sue Ellen]
Dad, I don't understand, why are you smiling? You just lost Ewing Oil?
Son, you don't understand. Ewing Oil is back in Ewing hands. Your Uncle Bobby is no longer going to sell Southfork, and is back in the oil business. I am the Chairman of the Board of Weststar. Your mother is back at Southfork, and you are going to remain in Dallas to learn the oil business under the best damn oil man there ever was.

It was like looking at a filling drawer of 70's-80's greatest American soap characters. The actors on display are covered in dust, have aged almost beyond recognition, and made it clear to me they would be stuck to their characters until death will them part, but nevertheless awakened a morbid curiosity in me to watch( couldn't watch it all, but I just had to have a glimpse) them once more. I remember a line from an early episode of "Dallas" where Cliff, upon receiving some bad news of some kind, remains staring into the air for a second, and then throws his Whisky glass at the door, saying: -"Why don't you just stay out of our life?!?...- Well, by the looks of it, these guys are not going to stay out of ours, and I don't mind that at all.
