    There are probably a lot of people who have never seen nor even heard of the show Dallas. There are probably fewer who can actually claim to have seen this episode, but everyone has heard these three infamous words that made Dallas into a Pop Icon... "Who Shot J.R.?".

    That phrase alone shows how great it was. Years after the show has gone off the air, people who have never even seen it still remember it. Besides giving the show Icon status, it turned a floundering show around, and drew millions of viewers to tune in the next season.moreless
  • The episode that launched "Dallas" into the stratosphere!

    This episode would become the pivitol moment in \"Dallas\" history. Not only did this episode establish the \'cliffhanger\' in television drama, it singlehandedly catapulted \"Dallas\" to straospheric heights of popularity. The episode is expertly paced and of course ended with the scene that left everyone asking \'Who Shot J.R.?\" - and with the summer\'s actors and writers strikes the world had to wait 8 long months to find out the answer in episode #58 \"Who Done It?\"moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Kristin: You can't scare me.
      J.R.: It takes brains to know when to be scared, honey. And since that's in short supply around here, I'm gonna help you. Now is the time to be scared.

    • J.R.: You gave me quite a surprise this evening.
      Sue Ellen: Oh?
      J.R.: You managed to maintain a certain decorum.
      Sue Ellen: Sorry to disappoint you darling.
      J.R.: What?
      Sue Ellen: You expected me to be embarrassed in front of your family tonight a dinner. Well, I wasn't was I? I was a perfect lady. Charming, witty, and sober.
      J.R.: I swear you're heading at ninty miles an hour towards a nervous breakdown. Gonna have to do something about those ravings of yours.
      Sue Ellen: No, J.R. I am not raving, I am not drunk. I am just fine. And you're not going to put me back in that sanitarium.
      J.R.: Who's going to stop me?
      Sue Ellen: Bobby's going to stop you. He's not going to let you put me away.
      J.R.: I wouldn't count on that. You know I always get what I want.
      Sue Ellen: Tell me J.R., which slut are you going to stay with tonight?
      J.R.: What difference does it make? Whoever it is, it's got to be more interesting than the slut I'm looking at right now.
