    Inspired by Jerry and Elaine's conversation about people being "undatable," and it's Seinfeld's 30th anniversary, was there anyone on Dallas who was "unslappable?" What I mean is, would it be just wrong, never deserved, or cringey if they were slapped? Every character it seems had a moment where they did something slappable, but was there one character who it would just not be a good idea to have that scene? Or do you think every character deserved at least one good one over the span of the series?
    (I know I just started another thread about desired slaps, but decided to do another one. I guess I'm feeling slaphappy this week:spinning:)

    Miss Ellie springs to mind, well certainly the original one anyway

    Miss Ellie and maybe Dave Culver (correct me if I’m wrong, the only character that was never tarnished).

    there’s no way a sane person would have ever slapped Sam or Tilly from the original Barbecue episode

    Lucy or one of her stuck-up other friends slapping Muriel would have led to the demise of the series long before the dream season had a chance to happen!

    I can't imagine ANYONE walking up to Jock and giving him a slap across the cheek. A punch, maybe. But not an insulting slap.

    It would have to be Miss Ellie. But knowing Barbara Bel Geddes theater background and if the occasion called for it I believe she would have allowed the character to be slapped. And that someone would have been Lady Jessica Montford.

    Miss Ellie is the obvious answer, but I don't think anyone would or should slap Mavis, Aunt Lil or Aunt Maggie. Patricia Shepard and Rebecca Wentworth, on the other hand ...

    after some consideration I’ve changed my mind about this.

    If done correctly, “Who Slapped Muriel?” could have been “Who Shot JR?” on steroids - an even bigger cultural and ratings bonanza.

    Has Donna ever been in a slap-inducing situation? I mean, in a way that makes sense?

    The only thing I can think of that comes close is when she told Miss Ellie she was publishing a book revealing Jock's dirty laundry.

    Donna and Ray's son Tony was the cutest, more adorable fellow and if any slapped him they would deserve to be threatened with Ellie's shotgun.

    I will agree Miss Ellie isn’t someone anyone would have got away with slapping, but that doesn’t mean I’d give her an award for being a great person - she just plaid vulnerable well.

    not that a slap would have been the proper response, but I can see where Cliff would be infuriated when Donna, who he was dating at the time no less, didn’t push for him to replace Dave Culver in the legislature, letting Bobby Ewing of all people get the nomination
