Discussion in 'Dallas - The Original Series' started by Willie Oleson, Jan 13, 2019.
Gosh...what could that be?
Ahh, that would be telling! In the meantime, here she is teaching some lucky students her brilliantly bonkers approach to acting:
you could see the seeds of this approach in her reaction to Brian Dennehy as the vengeful, abusive, cuckolded Luther Frick
("that's right, Milandra, I'm going to Greece for SEX!!")
Actors re-discovering their passion for acting, that's a reality show I'd watch (as long as there's nothing to win).
Such an evil name.
This is another example of a picture worth a thousand words. Let's look at this:
Oh yes, on the outside looking in, all right!
On the DVD commentary for this episode, David Jacobs talks about how he originally envisioned showing Southfork from Gary and Val's point of view as they drove up towards it in this scene, but the budget wouldn't allow it.
Thank you for that, James. I learn something from you all the time.
You are right about the budget. Look at the truck they used in this scene. It's from the Paramount Studios fleet. This truck was also used as Ray's truck once, and can be seen in "The Dukes of Hazzard".
Lucy told Gary to grab Ray's truck so they could head out to Fort Worth (to see Valene, unbeknownst to him), so this actually is Ray's. It's interesting how dismissive of Ray Lucy suddenly is in this episode when Gary shows up. In a later scene she tells Gary to fire Ray and take charge of the ranch ("he's not much!")
Glad you jumped in, Taylor Bennett, Jr. That makes more sense.
Lucy could have used that truck to start her modeling career.
If my memory serves me well, there is only one minor character who is about to choke...literally, in the rest of the show. Does it have anything to do with Lucy or her doctor husband...?
She must be the woman Mitch saves from choking in a restaurant!
What does cuckolded mean?
it means someone slept with one's wife or significant other, ala JR and the salacious Wanda Frick... in fact it seems Niki Flacks was right at the top of the list when they needed to bring in someone for one of these situations!
Yes I think her name was Evelyn Michelson. But that was way later.
Looking forward to your next review Willie.
I think that Michaelson woman was a patient of Mitch´s who had gone under the knife and flirted with him (and maybe a little more...). The woman who almost choke was the wife of the doctor who gave Mitch his first serious job in his clinic. The patient came after that...
I almost misread that.
You are right. This just proves once again that I really must rewatch Dallas at some point soonish. I have started to forget some of the details.
PS: What were you thinking about/doing when you read my post...?
I wondered if the patient was flirting during or after the operation - which reminded me of the Australian soap Let The Blood Run Free.
Jock is having heart problems and is taken to some kind of hospital. I noticed a lot of cars, a car breakers yard, perhaps?
There had been a few discussions prior to his seizure, and accusations fly to and fro.
Pam needs to talk to Bobby, but he's not in the mood for it.
Are you afraid to see him?
-I've never been afraid of that man in my life.
What are you trying to prove working out here?
-He's not here, somebody has to do it.
Bobby, why are you lying this kind of guilt on yourself?
-Pamela I could have killed that man!
The switch from slightly annoyed to terribly upset looks a little over-dramatized, but I decided not to giggle.
But Dallas itself is not so respectful because the very next scene shows one of Jock's "boys" bursting into laughter.
You have a disgusting mouth.
Both JR and Sue Ellen do everything they can to exclude the other couple from whatever it is that needs to be done, and then use the argument that "he's not ready yet"/"she doesn't fit in".
It looks like Bobby is going to work on the ranch for a while, but will it really bring the peace and quiet that Jock needs?
Separate names with a comma.
