      • J.R.: Michelle Stevens is a public health hazard. You ought to be grateful to me, son. Where are you going, running back to your mama with your tail dragging?
        James: No. No, I'm not leaving yet. Not after you put in so much time and energy into flattening my rocks. No, I'm not leaving Dallas 'til after the wedding.
        J.R.: You mean Bobby's wedding?
        James: No, I mean my wedding... to Michelle. Imagine, breakfast every morning with you sitting across the table from that gold-digging little tramp. I can't wait to see your face.

      • J.R.: (to James) Look, as far as I'm concerned, you're still a little pup. And you don't get to run with the pack until you're well and truly trained.

      • Atticus: Well, it was a miracle that I survived. All I had to live on was fresh water, a few coconuts, and an occasional fish.
        McKay: Sounds like a healthy diet to me.
        Miss Ellie: Certainly a lot healthier than being named in your will.

      • J.R.: The whole thing's about James. He belongs in the oil business. He's got my blood in his veins and my daddy's. Hell, he's a Ewing, he belongs at Ewing Oil. Except that money-hungry little b*tch Michelle has got her claws in him.
        Bobby: Are you telling me you tried to ruin April's project just so you could split up James and Michelle?
        J.R.: Well, sure.
        Bobby: I suppose the next time your mail's late, you'll bomb the post office.

      • Michelle: Well, thanks to the grapevine, we now know who sank our project.
        James: What? It wasn't McKay?
        Michelle: Guess again. It wasn't somebody trying to stop me. It was somebody trying to stop you.
        James: No way. I'll kill him.
        Michelle: I guess that's why they call your daddy, "The Smiling Cobra."

      • Bobby: J.R., I hope you don't mind, but this time I've decided not to ask you to be best man at the wedding.
        J.R.: Huh. That suits me. I'd like to keep as far away from an altar as I can, if you know what I mean.

      • McKay: You know, sometimes it pays to have a bad reputation.

      • J.R.: Well, just remember: Marriage is like a salad. A real man has to learn to keep his tomatoes on top.

      • J.R.: (laughing) Oh, Lordy, Lordy. This is wonderful. The secret diary of Miss Stephanie Rogers. The little witch is gonna get spanked with her own broomstick.

      • Clayton: (watching a news report about Cliff) I hope J.R.'s asleep. This will give him nightmares.
