    • QUOTES (9)

      • J.R.: James, you've got a lot to learn. And I just taught you your first lesson. If you got a deal, lock it up before somebody comes along and knocks you outta the box.

      • J.R.: Uh, say, darling, that's my spot.
        Stephanie: I doubt it.
        J.R.: No, I was just about to pull in there.
        Stephanie: If you would have taken the time or knew how to read, you'd have seen the reserved sign. Visitor parking is over there.
        J.R.: Why aren't you home fixing lunch for your husband instead of taking up parking spaces?

      • J.R.: Where were you last night?
        Cally: Where were you?
        J.R.: Taking care of business. You didn't answer my question.
        Cally: Well, I was taking care of business, too—the business of making me happy. I'm tired of sitting around here waiting for you to come home whenever you feel like.
        J.R.: Well, considering I found you slopping hogs in Hayleyville, I should think you'd be grateful for a place like this to sit in.

      • Cally: You know, you got a real mean mouth.
        Michelle: Funny, J.R. seemed to like it.

      • Lucy: Look, she wasn't talking to you.
        Michelle: Will you butt out?
        Lucy: Hey, don't start with me or I'll pop ya one.
        Michelle: Well, find yourself a ladder so we'd be eye-to-eye.
        Cally: If you want to come after someone, you come after me.
        Michelle: Well, what do we do? Rassle country-style?

      • Miss Ellie: J.R., would you stop worrying about Cliff Barnes. You think he's got nothing do in life except plot against you.
        J.R.: Mama, the man is—he's, he's like a virus. Every time you think you're rid of it, it comes up and bites you again.

      • Bobby: (whispering) Good-bye, Pam.

      • James: Look, you're very pretty. And I'm sure you have some redeeming qualities, but I'm involved with someone right now.
        Melinda: Oh, good. For a while there, I was thinking maybe you didn't like girls.
        James: Why? Because I didn't jump right into bed with you?
        Melinda: It's the only reason I can think of.

      • (Cliff has just finished taunting J.R.)
        J.R.: What have I done to deserve this?
