    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Jeri Gaile's character (Rose Daniels) finally gets a name in this episode. In the previous season, she was never referred to directly by name and was credited in the end credits as "The Redhead."

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Michelle: Why were you and J.R. partners and not you and Bobby?
        April: There was a time a while back when Bobby and I were on opposite sides. J.R. was the only person who would give me the time of day when I first got here. But that has all changed. I just want to be rid of him now.
        Michelle: Dating Bobby might make that a little difficult, don't you think?
        April: Maybe, but I'll live to see him socially. And I hear tales that Hitler could be charming over cocktails.

      • Michelle: You've been holding out on me, sister, dear.
        April: About what?
        Michelle: You've been playing in some real high stakes games here in Dallas. You and J.R. were talking millions.
        April: In this town, you don't mention a number unless it's followed by six zeroes.

      • Rose: I got a beauty shop in Follette. It's up in the panhandle. Now, I ain't givin' José Eber any competition, but I'm doing okay.

      • April: He can turn me down if he wants to, but since Cliff discovered the land's potential, I feel honor-bound to give him the right of first refusal.
        J.R.: Honor-bound? Well, it seems like hanging around with Bobby brings out the best in people - even you. Amazing.
        April: What's amazing is that the two of you are brothers.
        J.R.: Hmm, from time to time that occurs to me, too.

      • J.R.: Bobby, why do you consistently expect the worst of me?

      • (Boomer shows Tommy how his home-made bomb works)
        Tommy: Works like a mousetrap.
        Boomer: Yeah, but pity the poor mouse because when this thing goes, everything within a ten-foot radius is mincemeat.
        Tommy: By tomorrow night, they'll be scraping Mr. Bobby Ewing off the ceiling.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • When asked if she wants to accompany Cally to the art gallery, Lucy replies, "Rambo couldn't keep me away," referring to the character, John Rambo (played by Sylvester Stallone), first seen in the 1982 film, First Blood.
