It's absolutely amazing how relentlessly abrasive Sue Ellen's personality could be for such long periods of time. I'm watching season 3 and from the time she got home from the hospital after having John Ross up to and beyond where I am now (Miss Elie Saves The Day) almost every line Sue Ellen says is sarcastic in a very nasty, abrasive way. She wasn't just nasty and unlikable in scenes with JR. She even treated baby John terribly. She had scenes where family members were trying to be kind and helpful and she still treated them all like crap. One of the most petty, nasty things she did was when Bobby was talking to her nicely who she was holding one of the baby's toys. She for me reason resents Bobby for being helpful so out of anger she purposely drops the baby's toy on the floor breaking it. I've seen lots of things but a mother purposely breaking one of her newborn baby's toys along with refusing to go to him when he cries? She was just an awful woman so much of the time that I wonder if it would be safe to say that even though she had relatively short periods of time when she didn't act in an abrasive manner, in general she had a level of sarcasm, snobbiness, and overall abrasiveness that made her the most abrasive character ever to star in a prime time soap. Dallas is the only soap I ever had time to watch so I'm asking all of you for your opinions.
