By non-recurring I mean that the character only appeared during a particular storyline was going in and after the storyline was over, we never saw that character again. An example would be Naldo Marchetta because he only appeared during the storyline of Katherine hiring him to break up Bobby and Pam. Edgar Randolph would be another example. He only appeared in the storyline of JR blackmailing him over the bid amounts for the offshore leases. This is as opposed to someone like Jordan Lee who although some might say he was a minor character, he appeared on and off throughout Dallas. My favorite line from a non-recurring character comes come from the character Dr. Hebert Styles - Kimberly Creider's father. The scene the line came from took place one time when JR went to Dr. Styles' house during the time period when Dr. Styles had been telling JR he'd back hm if he divorced Sue Ellen and married his daughter, Kimberly. This time JR went to se him he told Dr. Styles that he found the condition of marrying Kimberly unacceptable, and said despite that, Dr. Styles would be better off backing JR anyway in his takeover bid for WestStar because if he didn't back JR, there would be a war for control of WestStar. Dr. Styles said no, that JR had to marry Kimberly or he would fight JR's takeover attempt. It was a very good scene and I love the last line spoken by Dr. Styles in that scene to JR: "Men have tried to ride roughshod over me before. If you'd like, one day I'd be glad to show you their tombstones." That line is badass! BTW, I don't remember the name of the actor, but whoever he was, he had been on Dallas before. The other role was smaller and I think the other character only appeared once or twice at the most. He was the guy that JR first talked to about the possibility of visiting Cuba and JR chose him to talk to because he'd been a politician who had experience in the Caribbean area.
