FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Pam had her infamous dream the night Bobby slept over after proposing to her in "Swan Song", but Bobby was already being stalked. This storyline was never revisited after she woke up, nor was the resolution to Dusty's split from his wife.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Bobby: (steps out of the shower) Honey, what's the matter? You look like you just saw a ghost.
      Pam: For a minute, I thought I did.
      Bobby: What're you talkin' about?
      Pam: You. Oh, Bobby, it was awful. When I woke up, I thought that you were dead.
      Bobby: What?!
      Pam: I had a nightmare. A terrible nightmare. I dreamed that you were here, and you were leaving. And Katherine was in her car, and she was waiting, and when we started to leave, she tried to run me down but you pushed me out of the way. (starts to cry) And then she hit you and she crashed into a truck, and she was killed. And then we took you to the hospital, and you died!
      Bobby: Hey. Pam, I'm right here. And I'm fine.
      Pam: There was so much more. And, Bobby, it seemed so real. There was Sue Ellen, and there was Mark, and I was married.
      Bobby: (laughs) Hey, you are going to be married. To me. just as soon as we can.
      Pam: (cries again) I was so afraid. Oh, I love you so much!
      Bobby: Honey, it's over. None of that happened. We're together, and I love you. And I'm getting you all wet.

  • NOTES (5)

    • The revelation of the dream had effects on other characters besides Bobby Ewing. Katherine Wentworth was now alive again, Mark Graison returned to the "presumed dead" status. Jamie Ewing Barnes and Sue Ellen Ewing were also likely revived (the final episode of the previous season did not confirm their deaths but they were deemed likely by events).

    • Dallas executive producer Leonard Katzman told TV Guide that he regards Bobby's return from the dead (in this episode) and the shooting of J.R. as his greatest Dallas coups. Regarding Bobby's return as a dream, he stated "We took a lot of heat, but it was the thing that revived the show."

    • Dack Rambo (Jack) is added to the opening credits.

    • Several fake resolutions to Patrick Duffy's return were filmed and leaked to the tabloids in an effort to keep the resolution of Pam's dream a secret. Among the false resolutions was 1) Duffy was back as Bobby's twin, 2)Duffy was back as an impostor impersonating Bobby and 3) Bobby hadn't really died in 8th season finale but was secretly revived at the last minute.

    • Originally aired as a 2 hour episode.
