    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • John Ross: (to Sue Ellen about Lockwood) Can't you find a boyfriend who speaks English?

      • Sue Ellen: And finally, Don Lockwood, Afton Cooper.
        Lockwood: I'm pleased to meet you. Somehow, I feel I know you already.
        Afton: I'm sure Sue Ellen has told you only the nicest things about me.
        Lockwood: Oh, absolutely.

      • Brundin: Mr. McKay, I'm glad you could make it.
        McKay: I see the Ewing brothers also received an invitation. I find that somewhat annoying.
        Brundin: Spring Ball is for everyone.
        McKay: But especially for those who like to play one side against the other, eh?
        Brundin: But isn't that the essence of capitalism? And isn't capitalism the state religion of Texas?

      • McKay: If Bobby and J.R. steal this deal from me, they're in for an all-out war. I'm willing to do whatever dirty street fighting is necessary to pry their claim-jumping hands from what's mine.

      • Sue Ellen: How would you like to spend Sunday with John Ross and me? Just a family day.
        Lockwood: John Ross, isn't he, uh... what, what do they call them? A, uh... what is it? A child? Aren't they dangerous?

      • Lockwood: Hey, can we talk?
        Elaine Eddy: Don't tell me, I'm still playing her too strong.
        Lockwood: Look, you're an abused personality. Your Texas tyrant husband doesn't hit you, but slowly, day by day, he's tormenting you to death.
        Elaine: So I should play her more... more passive?
        Lockwood: Like a child. Very needy, very vulnerable.
        Elaine: Okay.
        Sue Ellen: Think of your husband as a man who would set your teddy bear on fire... just to watch you cry.

      • J.R.: You're just as beautiful as you were twenty years ago.
        Vanessa: And you're still just as full of that remarkable Texas hot air.

      • John Ross: (to Sue Ellen) How can you talk to a guy who's never played baseball?
        Don: I played cricket. Does that count?
        John Ross: Any sport named after an insect has got to be lame.

      • Bobby: Can we take this relationship at my pace?
        April: We can take it slow, but it's not my first choice.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • After the Spring Ball is over, April tells Bobby, "like the song says, I could have danced all night." This is an allusion to the Broadway musical, My Fair Lady, which includes the song, "I Could Have Danced All Night".
