    B - the Cartel, along with opportunistic banker Vaughn Leland, eagerly bought out the majority of the Ewing Oil leases in Southeast Asia, not knowing they were being bamboozled by the devious JR

    D - perhaps it was destiny that led a fed-up but hungry runaway Lucy to pull up to this roadside diner (a Stuckey's, upon close inspection) minutes before the dastardly Willie Gust entered, intent on making the next move in his fearsome statewide crime spree.

    F - it's a damn good thing Ray had a fire extinguisher handy, or else the combination of a sabotaged gas lamp and Jock's discarded cigar could have led to a catastrophic wildfire engulfing the Texas-LA border.

    Let's admire the pictures Taylor Bennett Jr posted of The Dove Hunt, and take a moment to look at the brilliant writing of this episode.

    This is one of the rare situations where Ewing money can't help them.

    We saw foreshadowing of this when J.R. had to play second fiddle to Ray, who was much more accustomed to the physical activity done during the trip. It was Ray who was in the middle of the bar fight. It was Ray who grabbed the fire extinguisher. J.R., with all of his money, could only offer a weak, "You're just a hired hand around here, Ray."

    When Jock, Ray, Bobby, and J.R. are being shot at, it didn't matter if they had one dollar in the bank or one million dollars. That wouldn't help them here. As Tom Owens said, "There's no Ewing Organization out here. It's just you and me."

    And speaking of that whole confrontation, look up that bar scene online. Both Jim Davis and Robert J Wilke had played cowboys in westerns many times and were skilled at their craft. Watching this scene, we can easily imagine that Jock and Owens were in a western set in the 1800's.

    Give credit to the writers for allowing those two actors to take over the scene, which they did perfectly.

    And the other plot in this episode, played beautifully by Barbara Bel Geddes, is another example of how the Ewing fortune cannot help. Miss Ellie finds a lump, and all the money in the world cannot stop what is coming in the next few episodes.

    Very nice job, Dallas. This was one of your finest.

    H - there was some interesting foreshadowing indeed as the Ewing clan boarded the helicopter for the trip.

    ---

    JR: I don't see why Dad has to have Ray along. Should be a family thing.

    Bobby: You know how he feels about Ray - just like he is part of the family.

    JR (perhaps a bit sarcastically?): Yeah. Never could figure that one out.

    You are right about the foreshadowing. And also remember this was when Jock first told J.R. about Amanda. Family secrets just below the surface. . .

    M - JR probably thought laying $100 on Julie for a belated birthday present after a steamy lovemaking session was an act of great munificence, but Julie thought otherwise, jumping into the arms of the devious and fanatical Cliff Barnes the very next night.

    N
    Greetings from Nacogdoches, Texas!
    [​IMG]

    I'm halfway between Dallas and the Texas/Louisianna border.

    In other words, I'm halfway between Southfork and Takapa.

    So of course, I'm thinking of all of you!

    P - as he described to Bobby and Pam in this Las Vegas hotel suite, in between his childhood at Southfork and his Knots Landing days in California, Gary lived a peripatetic lifestyle
