    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Bobby mentions that he just inherited half of Ewing Oil, and Gary says that JR also inherited half of Ewing Oil, but that wasn't actually true at this point. On the Dallas episode where Jock's will was read, he set up a contest between JR and Bobby where the winner would get controlling interest in Ewing Oil and the loser 19%. Also Gary had inherited 10% of Ewing Oil along with Ray and Miss Ellie, but that was never mentioned. Too bad the writers didn't compare notes and none of the actors noticed the error.

      • Why would Gary go see his family and stay at a hotel-not at Southfork? I can't believe Miss Ellie would have had that. It would have been far juicier if Abby had gone to Southfork with Gary and interplayed with the Ewings there. Perhaps it would have better if this had been incorporated into the Dallas episode and Knots Landing should have picked up the story when Gary and Abby returned.
