T - for a longtime Ewing employee, handing over secret documents to a Barnes (especially a shirtless one) was tantamount to treason

V- To aide his vision, Big Jock Ewing used glasses to read this newspaper.
W - Alex Ward was a whillygoleerie.
X- The fake plants are a long way from forming a Xyst.
Warning! Rant ahead:
This is the problem with the later years of the series. Look at the picture above (Thank you, Michelle ).
This looks like a set built for a high school play. A mediocre high school play.
Everything is so fake and flimsy that I was expecting a Monty Python type farce where cliff gets thrown into a wall and the wall falls over.
Compare this to the earlier seasons, when they actually took the time to decorate a set:
In the earlier years, they paid attention to the little details. The computer (new and unique at the time), awkwardly sitting on a desk not designed for a computer. EXACTLY like we would have seen computers in the early years.
The leather chairs, of substantial heft and weight. Exactly like we would see in an executive's office.
The door that J.R. is holding on to looks like a real, solid wood door.
The backlighting coming from the hallway, which indeed would be brighter so people can easily find their way around.
Seems a lot of effort went into the early seasons.
Y- Alan Beam talking on his yellow phone while Lucy looks at him yearningly.
Z - a rising young star on the Dallas legal scene, Alan had more fur on his chest than an entire zooful of orangutans
A - Alex Ward was an attercap.
B - Bobby
C - James Beaumont was a clapperdudgeon.
D - though his father was a competent oilman and trusted colleague of Jock, the moderately thuggish Willie Joe Garr was a bit of a dimwitted dolt
