    The episode begins when Ray receives a letter from his Season 2 amour, Donna Culver.



    The Midget takes care of that, when she sneaks into Ray's house and discovers that Donna has sent a million letters, which Sun has left un-opened. She, OF COURSE, reads one of them, which is, coincidentally of course, the one that explains why Donna Culver went back to her former husband (he is dying of cancer in case you want to know). Sun comes in, yells: "You ho', what are ye doing here?!!!" (no, seriously) and then The Midget tells him the whole truth... surpiiiiise: Sun calls Donna.



    The Bitch and the Unfaithful:

    Well, this time, Kristin and J.R. have a great plan in order to have Alan Beam pass as someone who hates the Ewings (they want Alan to be the man behind Cliff Barnes). So, Alan comes to the Rodeo, "insults" Kristin, she slaps him, J.R. slaps him, the cameraman slaps him, the old-lady watching the show slaps him and then Alan slaps himself up. And The Midget, seeing that he has a real good potential as a masochistic gigolo, approaches him and introduces herself (after he realizes where the voice is coming from).



    The Drunk Gets A Lover:

    Then, Sue Ellen can't take the noise from all the constructions and decides to go shopping. As she enters a diner, her packages fall and, Oh-What-A-Surprise!, a young, handsome, sexy, tall, etc, etc cowboy comes to her rescue. And, BAM! The Love is born! There is a lot of flerting, and eyeing and lip-licking and touching and... Bobby. The cowboy, named Dusty Farlow, leaves after Bobby Ewing arrives to meet Sue Ellen, but not before he informs her that he will be at the Annual Ewing Rodeo. As the Ewing Rodeo goes on, Dusty competes, and wins, while he flirts and talks with Sue Ellen. J.R., of course, sees all that and, oh my, he's jealous! So, at the end of the episode, he asks to see Sue Ellen privately and takes her to their room. There, he throws her on the bed and tells her that it's time for her to feel what a REAL cowboy he is. Nah. He tells her to just imagine that he is Dusty. Sue Ellen: "You DISGUST me!" J.R. then looses his erection, gets up and tells her that he has already paid more attention to her than he should ever have. He leaves.



    Best Moment Of The Episode:

    After J.R. leaves Sue Ellen alone in her room, at the end of the episode, she just sits on the bed, as if she had been raped (apart from just having been rapped mentally, I mean.)! Then, as they freeze frame and the Executive Producers appear, it is anounced out at the fields that Dusty has won the Rodeo....



    J.R. and Sue Ellen quarell #6:

    (Sue Ellen is moping the ground with her look, when J.R. sees her and approaches her, leaving Bitch-Kristin(Bitchstin?)):

    J.R.: Sue Ellen, it wouldn't be bad if you put on a smile.

    (Then, Sue Ellen gives him The Frozen Look and the Retarded Smile Look):

    Sue Ellen: After all you've done for me J.R., I don't see why not?

    (And starts "mopping" again)
