    • QUOTES (5)

      • (Bobby prepares to go to bed with Sheila)
        Bobby: Tell me, Sheila. Who was the last man you slept with?
        Sheila: My husband—he was something special.
        Bobby: I'll bet he was.
        Sheila: You're very much like him. A rare good man in a world full of bad ones.
        Bobby: Well, let me tell you something. You're nothing like my wife. She's beautiful, loving, kind and generous. And if it'll bring her back to me one minute sooner, I'll push past my disgust and give you whatever you want.
        Sheila: (slaps Bobby) You bastard!

      • Sheila: The only way you can win this game is to play along.
        Bobby: What's the name of your game?
        Sheila: Charades.

      • Donia: What's that movie where Ronald Reagan wants everyone to win one for the gipper? Pride of the Yankees... no, no, that was Gary Cooper, anyway I gotta go too. I am sorry. I'd like to help you but I'm scared.

      • Dr. Wykoff: Calm down, Mr. Ewing. I don't want you to get an ulcer on top of everything.
        J.R. Now listen, I'm J.R. Ewing. I don't get ulcers, I give 'em.

      • Donia: You're disappointed in us, aren't you?
        J.R.: Well how would you feel? I wanted the A-Team, and I got F-Troop.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The episode title is an allusion to the 1963 film, Charade, which was set in Paris.

      • When J.R. tricks his rival inmate into admitting on camera that he faked his insanity, J.R. congratulates him for starring on "America's dumbest home videos", playing on the name of America's Funniest Home Videos.

      • The character played by Patrick Duffy's son, Padriac, was given the same name as Patrick's character from his previous series, The Man from Atlantis.
