    Sometimes a good, hard slap adds some sizzle to a scene. There have been slaps that have been wonderfully delivered and came at the perfect time in an episode(Lucy slaps JR when he tells her he bribed Valene, Pam slapping JR at the end of season 6). What are some slaps you wish had occurred that, in addition to being richly deserved, would have also added tremendously to the seriousness of the plot or interaction? Mine are:
    1. Miss Ellie slaps Sue Ellen after SE shot JR. The show treated the shooting as if she had just pushed JR into the pool. A slap was definitely in order.
    2. Lucy slaps Sue Ellen after Mickey"s death. Maybe not while SE was recovering from the accident herself, but later in season 7 when SE displays indifference to the tragedy.
    3. Jenna slaps Pam when Pam asks if she and Bobby could raise Jenna's baby. It would be a jolt to see the heroine on the receiving end of a slap.
    4. Katherine slaps Afton when she finds out Afton called Pam and told her Katherine was after Bobby. This will add to Katherine's wickedness and hint at her violent tendencies.:h2:

    5. Sue Ellen slaps Mandy when she tells her she's leaving Dallas with SE's husband. What nerve! Plus, Sue Ellen gets slapped twice here. She needs to get to "throw hands."

    TOTALLY and wholeheartedly agree with number 5. I'm going for knock outs here rather than dainty little bitch slaps.

    Sue Ellen didn't slap anywhere near as much as she should of. But Mandy didn't deserve a slap. She deserved a really knock out, break nose punch. Mandy was a nasty self centred narcissistic bitch, who Deborah Shelton admitted was a 'manipulative homewrecker'. Mandy deserved to be completely floored by Sue Ellen's right hook! Broken nose and jaw if I have anything to do with it. See how much Mandy loves herself then.

    Similar to above, so did hypocritical Afton. 'Cliff is MY man'. Right love. JR is Sue Ellen's man, but didn't stop your trashy ass sleeping with him in their bed now did it?

    Similar to above, Holly Harwood deserved to be knocked out as well. Pure evil.

    However, how about someone slap LUCY for telling Mickey to get in the car with Sue Ellen???? I think JR could do with a few more slaps as well. How about Miss Ellie KNOCKING HER SON OUT FOR HIS TREATMENT OF SUE ELLEN???? :think:

    Let us not forget that guys can slap, too - JR's slap of Jeb Ames after he threatened to harm Bobby was fantastic!

    I feel strongly that Jordan Lee should have slapped someone, anyone, during his many years on the show.

    I always do want to see Miss Ellie rush JR across the foyer as she says, "don't you ever learn??," JR snaps back, "mind yer own damn business, Mama!", and she slaps him hard, JR falling back against the grandfather clock, the chimes audible to Lucy and Mickey out on the back terrace, just as Sue Ellen emerges from the sliding glass door.

    But Katzman would never have allowed such a thing.

    And speaking of "hypocrisy", I'm just fine with Sue Elle slapping all those mistresses, just as long as they're allowed to smack the hell out of her in return.

    Also Dusty slapped JR when JR mocked him in their stadium scene.

    Trying to think of suitable candidates to slap Leslie Stewart and Granny Beaumont:

    1: Theresa
    2: Marilee Stone
    3: Mavis Anderson

    They could have had some more fun with the Mandy and Sue Ellen relationship. Maybe when Sue Ellen calls Mandy a tramp once too often, Mandy says: "I heard that when you had John Ross, you had no idea who the father was!"

    I think a catfight between Sue Ellen and Mandy where they started tearing off each other's clothes would have been appropriate, where they both ended up getting stripped down to their Valentine's lingerie!

    I know JR probably ends up getting his ass stomped, but damn I just wish he would have slapped Clayton Farlow one good damn time. You know, really got his moneys worth.

    I agree with all of this except for Lucy. She said that in a panic situation. Besides, she'll be haunted by those words for the rest of her life.
    During the battle for EO, JR said nobody's hands were clean. Well, Lucy and Mickey's were. They were two innocents who suffered because of the fight.
    I like @Snarky's Ghost's scenario where Miss Ellie sends JR flying into the grandfather clock for everything he did to Sue Ellen. Boy, did he need a beat down for all of that!

    Rebecca needed to be slapped. Constantly, strongly, by numerous people at once...

    Miss Ellie should have slapped Jessica after she tried to kill Clayton. Yes, she was mentally ill to a certain extent, but she was portrayed as more evil during her second stint on the show and deserved a smack down.

    I'd like to have seen Dr. Danvers walk up to Cliff Barnes and slap him for absolutely no reason at a Ewing Barbecue

    Miss Ellie should have killed Jessica with a leg of lamb and then serve her, I mean it, to all the Dallasites at the BBQ. And the eppi ending with a freeze-frame updating this shot:

    A recreation of the famous "Airplane" scene where various passengers take turns to slap a hysterical passenger - the entire cast to perform this on Charlie Wade.

    If you wanted to watch a TV show with a lot of slappers I suggest you try reality TV :spinning:

    There were definitely SO many opportunities that were missed. Pam got a good one on Katherine over the letter, but she really should have slapped JR a few more times, especially over the Mark Grayson hunt - I still feel she should have given him so much more payback for that.

    Sue Ellen also had so many instances were a good slap would have been justified, both by her and to her.

    Lucy deserved a good few slap too - maybe they should have done a scene like the one in Airplane where a queue formed of people waiting to slap her.

    Did Pam ever really get back at JR for the wild goose chase he sent her on for Mark? Her confrontation with him when she found out was great, but I don't remember much coming from that later in the season.

    The only other time I remember Pam slapping JR was after he punched Cliff at the season 10 BBQ.

    I think I recall a gif of Pam slapping JR on the abc thread... the front of her weird hairdo flops down in the aftermath
