Before he learned that James and family were leaving Southfork, J.R. wanted to turn Lucy's old room into a nursery for baby Jimmy.
J.R.: Do you realize a 4th generation Ewing is going to be living here at Southfork?
Bobby: Yeah, except that James is actually a Beaumont.
J.R.: That's just a technicality. Ray Krebbs never changed his name and he was Ewing, partly any how.
Bobby: I remember how tickled you were about that.
J.R.: Yeah, well things have changed Bob. Now I understand how Daddy felt about Ray.
George Kennedy (Carter) and Cathy Podewell (Cally) do not appear in this episode.
This episode marks Howard Keel's final appearance on the show. Since most of the storylines revolved around the remaining cast members during this final season, the producers hardly ever had any storylines for this character, so he was written out of the show.
Howard Keel (Clayton) and Sasha Mitchell (James) make their final appearances in this episode, but they appear in the opening credits for the remainder of the season.
