    JR: Did your brother put you up to this, Miss Barnes? I don’t think that’s an unusual question to ask, Miss Barnes.
    Pam: Mrs Ewing.

    JR: I’m willing to spend some money now to avoid any inconvenience, but if you insist on being driven away, which you surely will be, you’re going to come away without anything honey,
    Bobby: Hi there, what’s going on?
    JR: Oh, just talking a little business
    Bobby: Mama don’t like business-talk when there’s supper on the table J.R.
    JR: Well you know mama, she’s so old fashioned.
    Bobby: C’mon honey, let’s go

    JR: I asked her how much she’d take
    Jock: You did what
    JR: I tried to pay her off.
    Jock: You jackass.

    Jock: It’s about time you learned the art of subtlety.
