    Hi Everyone,

    As we all know there is a whole book about JR Ewing's best quotes out there. But which other quotes from the show do you think are really memorable?

    I figured I'd start a thread where we can post quotes from our favorite characters. :ex:

    I'd be curious to see which favorite quotes that you have, of course you can still post JR quotes but I think it will be more interesting to see which quotes you find memorable for other characters like for instance, Ray, Lucy, Donna, Pam, Sue Ellen, Miss Ellie, Bobby etc.

    If you know it also write which episode the quote is from. If you don't know it just post the quote anyway.

    To get this started I will kick off by posting some quotes I find memorable:

    "Get me the shotgun Ray!" - Miss Ellie from the episode "Survival"

    "Real power is something you take" - Jock to Bobby. (I don't remember the episode!)

    "I've been just as faithful to our marital vows as you have darling," - Sue Ellen to JR in "Act of love".

    "I underestimated the new Mrs. Ewing, I surely won't do that again," JR to Ray about Pam in "Digger's Daughter."

    "I love you so much my heart hurts," Pam to Bobby in "Deliverance".

    So that's some of my favorite quotes what's yours?

    Take care,
    Love:
    Karin

    P.S. I have not actually checked up the quotes but written them down from memory so I could be off by a word or two. D.S.

    Jock: "You jackass! It's about time you learned the art of subtlety!" "Who in the hell do you think Ewing Oil is? It's me!" "Nobody gives you power - real power is something you take!"

    The list is endless for JR but amongst my favourites would be:

    "Ray was never comfortable having dinner with the family, we do use knives and forks!"
    (To Sue Ellen re Dusty) "Your boyfriend can come to your rescue in one mighty hobble!"
    "Lucy, why don't you get your boyfriend to get a plastic surgeon to get you a new face - one without a mouth?"
    To Bobby re Harv Smithfield "The rate we're paying him he should be sleeping on our porch!"

    Something like (and I’m sure everyone knows who said it) “never tell the truth when a good lie will do.”

    Kristin: "You can't scare me."

    JR: "It takes brains to know when to be scared, honey, and since that's something in short supply around here, I'm gonna help you... Now is the time to be scared."

    His villainy usually had a more mischievous tone as the series went on, but Hagman could do menacing as well as anyone! The barber chair scene with John Ross in the much-maligned New Dallas was another example.

    Thanks to everyone who has taken part so far. Excellent video @Toni
    Yet it does seem like certain characters have more memorable quotes than others.

    Sounds like JR! ;)

    Oh most assuredly.

    Jock’s version: lie if it’s to your benefit

    Bobby’s version: lie if you have to

    J.R.: "Someone I worked with once said: 'JR Ewing doesn't get ulcers; he gives them."

    I think I put all my fav quotes in that video above. If you want a part 2, just say as many different quotes as you can remember and I will mention your (nick)names at the end of the video!! And no need to pay bucks as in the Kickstarter thingie...Any more quotes (I need 41 minimum...)...?
