    • QUOTES (10)

      • James: I heard you wanted to take after your Daddy in every way.
        J.R.: That's right.
        James: Well, congratulations then, because you have.
        Vanessa: James, no!
        James: I'd like to propose a toast to J.R. Ewing... my Daddy.

      • Bobby: We should also toast to the people who aren't here: Mama, Clayton, Gary, and Ray.
        J.R.: Oh, c'mon, Bobby, Ray's not really family.
        James: Who's he?
        J.R.: Daddy's big mistake... a half-breed, born on the wrong side of the blanket.

      • J.R.: Oh, Michelle, we meet again.
        Michelle: Will you really pay a small fortune to get Cliff out of Ewing Oil?
        J.R.: That's probably the most serious offer I've ever made in my whole life.
        Michelle: Then it's Michelle with two L's.
        J.R.: What?
        Michelle: I want to make sure you spell my name right on that huge check you're going to be writing me.

      • J.R.: Oh, James, there is a God after all, and he's smiling down on ol' J.R. right now.

      • Bobby: A Weststar supertanker... that's millions of barrels of oil.
        J.R.: (laughing) Oh, that's a damn shame.
        Bobby: It's not funny, J.R. Do you know what that's going to do to the Texas coastline, not to mention the pollution in the Gulf?
        J.R.: Well, what's a few dead duck? Didn't you hear? McKay's tanker—a McKay tanker—Bobby. Hell, this day is turning out to better than I thought it would.

      • Cliff: Now, wait a minute, pal. I'm a better oil man than you are... and Bobby and your precious daddy all put together. I've heard about you sweating bullets over this Shaughnessy deal. Hell, you can't make a simple sale without screwing it up.
        J.R.: The only thing screwed up in this office is your head, which I'd be very happy to serve on a silver platter for dinner tonight if I wasn't afraid of giving my whole family food poisoning.

      • J.R.: Well, speak of the Devil. I was just about to auction off your furniture, not that we'd get a whole hell of a lot for those garage sale items.
        Cliff: Well, that wouldn't solve anything. My office would still be bigger than yours.
        J.R.: Which matches the size of your head, which is much too big for your brain.

      • Bobby: If I were running your life, you'd spend a hell of a lot more time at the office.
        Cliff: I'd spend a hell of a lot more time at the office if it was a more pleasant place to be.
        Bobby: It's not a health spa, Cliff. What do you want, a palm tree and a piña colada?

      • Bobby: Cliff, let's not get into this now, okay? Let's just pick up our dates and go our separate ways.
        Cliff: I think that's a good idea. Why don't you tell me what restaurant you're going to so I can be sure to avoid it.
        April: Don't worry, it's not Chinese.

      • Bobby: [Ray]'s our brother and we love him.
        J.R.: He's a bastard in every sense of the word, Bob.
