    F - it would have been foolhardy for JR to fail to heed the advice of the rugged Hank Johnson in the delicate political climate of Southeast Asia

    I - a nearly incoherent but still stunning Sue Ellen thought she'd found the presumed-dead Dusty at the Ace Bar in Braddock

    K- Clayton warns Wes Parmalee that he would kill him if he was lying about being Jock Ewing at the Oil Barons Ball in 1987 (obviously not pictured here). Clayton's best scene in my humble opinion.

    et's look at this picture. I've always said that Dallas was an old fashioned Western, cleverly disguised as a weekly soap opera.

    Here we have two actors who have played cowboys in the old west.
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    These two men are in a show down. Notice that they both have their sleeves rolled up, ready for action.

    And they are literally as close as possible to eyeball to eyeball. The only thing keeping them from being even closer in this showdown is their cowboy hats are already millimeters from touching each other.

    True to the old West, there is nobody else around. It is just the two of them.

    And Clayton doesn't have to yell and scream to make his point. He is calm in his demeanor because he has the confidence to take this as far as he needs to.

    Oh, yes. Dallas is very much an Old Western, set in modern day.

    M - it may not sound like much, but when an independent oilman of Jock Ewing's stature calls a company like Mainwaring Oil a solid outfit, it's high praise indeed

    O - though Bobby was good friends with fellow Texas Longhorn Earl Campbell, and JR had similar taste in headwear to Coach Bum Phillips, rather than supporting the Oilers, the Ewings were a Cowboys household through and through

    (Earl arrived in Austin just a couple years too late to share what would have been a powerhouse backfield with QB Bobby)

    Q- .... which begs the American football question.... one wonders who Gary Ewing's favorite quarterback was when he moved to California in 1979?

    R - Knots Landing was in Southern California somewhere, right? In that case, I'd say there's a good chance it was Vince Ferragamo of the Rams

    T - Southfork was like a TARDIS, it was much bigger on the inside that what it looked like on the outside. :)
