    • QUOTES (12)

      • April: That's the difference between you and me. I don't want you unless you want me.
        Bobby: I do want you.
        April: I don't mean "want" want. I mean want.
        Bobby: I didn't mean that either.
        April: Well, then what do you mean?
        Bobby: I mean, I think we should get married.
        April: Married?
        Bobby: Married.

      • Cliff: Oh, do you think I care about that tape? I don't care about that tape! Look, so I got lucky from some bimbo. It's not like I'm married, I'm out there foolin' around.
        McKay: That may be. But how do you think it would look if the word got out that you were sleeping with the wife of the head of Weststar?
        Cliff: Well, you're not married. I mean...
        McKay: I'd like you to read this. It saddens me to tell you that the young lady who co-starred with you in that film has been, for three days now, Mrs. Carter McKay.

      • McKay: But you are the good guy, Cliff. The public loves you. I see you every night on the news. You're hot stuff. As a matter of fact, I have a tape of your last performance. I was rather impressed by it.
        (McKay plays a tape of Cliff and Rose in bed together having sex)
        Cliff: What the Hell is that?!
        McKay: "A Night in the Life of Cliff Barnes."

      • J.R.: You know what your problem is, James? You're just too much like me.

      • Cally: J.R. ran Alex out of Dallas.
        Lucy: I'm surprised that's all he did. You mean to tell me there weren't any broken bones—no death threats?

      • Sly: Why does everybody around here always blame everything on J.R.?
        Phyllis: Oh, because usually it's his fault.

      • Cliff: Would you like to have dinner with me?
        Rose: Oh, I really would. But there's this wonderful movie on the hotel TV... a real love story. I was just gonna order room service and watch it.
        Cliff: Shoot.
        Rose: If you'd like, we could watch it together... if you promise not to behave yourself.
        Cliff: You have my word on it.
        Rose: Mmm-hmm, then let's hurry and finish these drinks. I wouldn't want to miss a minute of it.
        Cliff: It's a long movie?
        Rose: Sugar, it's as long as we want it to be.

      • J.R.: I told you this is strictly business. That woman doesn't mean a damn thing to me. James, when you get a little older, you'll understand that there are things you have to do that are above and beyond what you learned in business school.

      • James: [Diana]'s a real barracuda.
        J.R.: (chuckling) Fortunately.

      • Diana: If Cliff Barnes has anything to do with it, you and your brother will be hanging from the highest yardarm with the Queen's Navy.
        J.R.: Oh, he's tried before, but always failed.
        Diana: Did he have public opinion behind him before?
        J.R.: No, but the man is a genius at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory... especially with a little help from my friends.

      • J.R.: As hard as it may be for you to believe, it wasn't all my fault.
        Lucy: That's not hard to believe... it's impossible.

      • J.R.: You saw the state she was in. How could you do anything that stupid?
        Lucy: Well, how did I know she was going to take the whole bottle? She only asked for 'a sleeping pill.'
        J.R.: And if she asked for 'a gun,' would you have given it to her?
        Lucy: If I thought she was gonna use it on you, yeah, I would.
