  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Stephanie: You are going to make a wonderful politician, Cliff. You lie with such a straight face.

    • James: And Phil Simms lets a long one go.
      John Ross & Christopher: Phil Simms?
      James: John Ross, the idea is to catch the ball.
      John Ross: That's not fair. Phil Simms plays for the Giants.
      James: So?
      Christopher: We play for the Cowboys and only the Cowboys...
      James: (to Cally) Now, why would they want to be a team with the worst record in football?

    • Cliff: Oh, my God!
      Bobby: So it's not my imagination.
      Cliff: Well, if it is, we're both hallucinating. She is the spitting image of Pam.

    • Sheryl: Girl, he is interested in you.
      Jeanne: Sheryl, let's face it, I am a middle-class Dallas girl who's been driving used cars all of her life. I'm not exactly what you would call a prime catch, especially for somebody like Bobby Ewing.
      Sheryl: Would you stop that right now? Look at Craig Keiffer. He was captain of the football team in high school. He was gorgeous, smart. He was interested in you.
      Jeanne: He was interested in my biology notes.
      Sheryl: So... if Bobby Ewing wants your biology notes, who are you to turn him down?

    • Cliff: But I'm tellin' you, J.R.'s not off the hook. I'm watching him. He makes one mistake, he and Marie Antoinette can compare notes.

    • Cally: I know this sounds old-fashioned, but I like taking care of J.R. I wanted to be married to him, not my painting.
      James: Yeah, I wanted him to be my father, not my boss.
      Cally: I won't be another Sue Ellen. I won't!

    • Stephanie: Poached red snapper and no dressing on the salad.
      Cliff: That's it? Women, all alike, always on a diet. Here, okay, I want cheddar cheese and bacon potato skins, sour cream on the side, Cattleman's steak, rare, french fries, no ketchup. Uh, I'll check out the dessert tray later.
      Debbie: Of course.
      Cliff: Scotch, I need more Scotch, dear. (to Stephanie) So, where were we?
      Stephanie: Well, I was just about to get you an Alka-Seltzer.

    • J.R.: (about Blackie) Oh, I knew that old rascal would be around somewhere.
      Sly: J.R., are you sure about this? This guy's pretty old.
      J.R.: Never underestimate the elderly.

    • J.R.: Are you telling me that I am pinning all my hopes on a crazy old man who wants to spend one night of love with his 80-year-old ex-girlfriend?
      Meg: You got it.
      J.R.: I must be just as crazy as he is.

  • Notes

    • Claude Earl Jones previously played Matt Henderson in episode 25, "Call Girl" during the 1978-1979 season and Wally Hampton in two episodes of the 1981-1982 season.

    • Deborah Rennard (Sly) appears in this episode, but is not credited in the end credits.

    • George Kennedy (Carter) & Charlene Tilton (Lucy) are not present in this episode.

  • Allusions

    • When Blackie tells J.R., "To quote an old oil field buddy of mine, 'Read my lips'...", referring to former President George H.W. Bush and his famous "Read my lips" speech at the 1988 Republican National Convention. Bush was from Texas and made his fortune in oil.

    • The episode title is borrowed from Larry Hagman's previous show of the same name. It also pokes fun at the "dream season," and TV Guide ads even asked if Bobby was "dreaming" that he found Pam again, a lookalike whose name was Jean.
