    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Julia: (excited) I haven't spoken with Chase in years!
        Angela: This is not a social call, Julia. I must tell him that his father just died!

      • Lance: They seem nice enough. I'm not sure what you have against them.
        Angela: It's very simple. If you want to be a part of the land, you have to invest yourself in the land. Chase has harldy loved here. He's been flying around in airplanes and now he has come to earth in the wrong place.
        Lance: You gonna tell him that?
        Angela: If he has any sense, I won't have to.

      • Julia: I wish I could just stop talking when I run out of things to say.

      • Angela: (speaking at her brother's funeral) We were both raised in the vineyards of
        Falcon Crest. Jason Gioberti was my brother, but he was more than that to me--he was my friend. He was my dearest friend. His passing will not change that. I think that I'll miss his laughter, and his compassion, but I will not miss his love, because that became part of me a long time ago.
        My father's dreams for Falcon Crest became Jason's and mine, and now that he's gone, the responsibility of turning those dreams into reality belongs to me. I know that your love and your prayers are with my brother, who was a man of the soil, and whom we return to the earth.

      • Chase: Hey, what is all this? I feel like Neil Armstrong home from the moon. A Neil Welcoming Committee.
        It's not a welcoming committee-- what's going on?
        Maggie: Your aunt from California just called.
        Chase: Angela-- what did she have to say?
        Maggie: It was an accident-- earlier this evening, I guess...
        Chase: What happened?
        Maggie: Your father's dead.

    • NOTES (5)

      • German episode title: "Das Haus der Väter", meaning "The House of the Fathers".

      • How Lorenzo Lamas got the role of Lance Cumson, was when Jane Wyman met his father, Fernando Lamas, on an episode of The Jane Wyman Show, when Lorenzo was only 3 months old at the time. Long after the series was ended, Jane suggested to Lorenzo to audition for the role, after he was all grown up, and with little acting experience.

      • Barbara Stanwyck was considered for the role of Angela, but turned it down and gave it to Jane Wyman, who was her old friend.

      • For the next 9 1/2 years, this show would usually air on Friday Evening, 10 P.M., immediately following, the immensely-popular soap, Dallas.

      • The show starts out with 7 characters: Jane Wyman (Angela), Robert Foxworth (Chase), Lorenzo Lamas (Lance), Susan Sullivan (Maggie), William R. Moses (Cole), Abby Dalton (Julia) and Jamie Rose (Vicki). There are also 3 co-stars: Nick Ramus (Gus), Margaret Ladd (Emma) & Chao-Li Chi (Chao-Li).

      • Chase: Hey, what is all this? I feel like Neil Armstrong home from the moon. A Neil Welcoming Committee.
        Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon.
