    1. Jenna #3 meets Bobby again at Billy Bob's.
    2. Jenna #3 teases Bobby about using reverse psychology when he asks her to the Oil Baron's Ball. (Makes me wonder if she was doing the same thing when she first kept telling Bobby that she didn't want to start seeing him. Very smooth, Jenna.)
    3. Jenna #3 tells Bobby that she won't let him buy her egotistically named boutique (Jenna's) for her.
    4. Jenna #3 and Katherine at Billy Bob's. (Sure, Jenna sounded a bit gold digger-ish here, but this scene was just hilarious.)
    5. After Charlie tells Jenna #3 that Jack said branding doesn't hurt the cattle, Jenna replies with: "Have YOU ever been branded?"
    6. Jenna #1 tells Pam and Bobby that Bobby is not Charlie's father. (Oh, why did they not listen!?)
    7. Jenna #3 slaps Charlie.
    8. Jenna #2 tells Bobby that Charlie is "having a ball with Naldo". (Another piece of history to get thrown out. Lol!)
    9. Jenna #3 meets Jack.
    10. Jenna #3's emerald meltdown. "Bobby loved emeralds, and Bobby loved ME!" (When we say "In your dreams!", we really mean it!)

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. :)
    I met Priscilla 2 ½ years ago and I can't do anything but agree with you. She is a very beautiful woman. But more than that she's lovely to her fans. :)
    If Elvis was anything like her (and I suspect she's learnt a thing or two of how to treat fans from observing him with fans) he was a great person.

    No surprises she meets a nasty end in Paris. Long live Jordan Lee

    Never ever understood why Katzman lapped her up

    I really like Sheree J. Wilson as an actress but her character April was boring and unforgettable. @Barbara Fan describing her as "insipid simpering April" sums up how I feel about the character too. I cannot think of a single memorable scene she was in other than when she was died in a hail of bullets, it was just a shame that more bullets didn't hit her and the character's death wasn't as slow and painful as was watching April over the seasons she was on the show. Therefore, I'm going to sit out of this round too.

    Agree I have only one scene and it's a pity it didn't happen in S9 and spared us the pain of having to watch such a wishy washy character and acting

    Shotgun now please BBG, at numero uno

    It's April dying in Paris - I think I cheered back in the day

    Thank you @Ome :)
    I'm looking forward to listing April scenes and I hope there are some other fans who will join me too.
    I know @Sarah also likes the character. :)

    I vote this category through gnashing of teeth...

    1. April getting killed. Oh dear. How sad never mind.

    2. Any scene throughout Dallas duration that April did NOT appear in

    3. Unfortunately this wasn't filmed
    but would have been more entertaining, me doing a cheer leading impression while watching her last scene on the show. Give me an 'A' Absolutely! Give me a 'P' Pathetic! Give me an 'R' Ridiculous! Give me an 'I' Insipid! Give me an 'L' Lack-lustre'!!!

    Complete waste of space character if ever there was one

    I mean that all in a nice and loving way you understand ;)

    Don't get me wrong, I want to be able to do all of these, but I'm afraid that I just don't like April enough (really at all) to come up with ten good scenes with her. The only thing I can offer was the part where she told that sexist waiter that she had bought the restaurant and fired him.

    Like Sue Ellen said once (she did, didn´t she?): "My Mama used to tell me, if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all." I´d rather let the others speak for me...but call me if there is a "worst April scenes poll". :re:

    I love April, have never understood the hostility towards her. She got together with Bobby after Pam had gone, she didn't have an affair with him or try to wreck his life.

    Some of my favourite scenes with her are:

    1. When she tells Bobby she loves him so much her heart hurts.

    2. Their wedding (when Sheree is pregnant and has to cover her bump with her bouquet)

    [​IMG]

    3. When she talks to her momma over the phone and pretends she is dating a bank clerk.

    4. The scene where Jack tells her he has sold his Ewing Oil shares to Jamie for a dollar.

    5. April tells Bobby JR is blackmailing her.

    6. April meets Sue Ellen in the pet store and they admire each others dress sense.

    7. April tells Bobby that Pam has ran off with her plastic surgeon.

    8. The scene before her kidnap where she is happily shopping in Paris.

    9. Her scene when Nick finds out she has exposed his family as part of the mob and in witness protection.

    10. Romance on the Seine with Bobby:
