The Celebration
AIRED:
The Colbys return from Denver to their home in Bel Air, California, where Jason Colby holds a press conference regarding the pipeline venture between his company, Colby Enterprises, and Denver-Carrington. Jason's wife, Sable, however, is upset that Jason's sister, Constance, has turned over her shares in the family company to her estranged nephew, Jeff, rather than to Jason and Sable's three children. Jason, meanwhile, shares a secret with Constance- he's dying. Later, Jason learns his business rival Zachary Powers is trying to muscle in on his deal with Denver-Carrington.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Bliss: (keeping her attraction to cousin Jeff in check) Why are the sexiest ones always off limits?

      • Sable: There's nothing devious about using your femininity.
        Monica: Well, I think any woman who resorts to those kind of tricks is letting down the team.
        Sable: Team? This isn't a locker room, darling. It's not us against them. When it comes to men, no two women are ever on the same team.

      • Jason: What's this get-up? You look like you're going to a Madonna concert?
        Bliss: You are totally awesome, daddy. You actually know who Madonna is?

      • Sable: (to Jason about Constance) Honestly, it's worse that having a mother-in-law. She's got you wrapped around her finger.

      • Garrett: I hear Jeff Colby's due in today.
        Jason
        : Oh, my nephew. There's plenty to do around here, we'll keep him busy. Sharpening pencils, maybe?

      • Jason: (to Jeff) I don't think you understand what you've gotten yourself into here. This is not like that cozy little corner grocery at Denver-Carrington. This is Colby Enterprises!

      • Sable: (to Jason, about Constance) Handing Jeff half the Colby empire on a silver platter... Well, I am not going to let her get away with this- Depriving my three chicks of their share of her estate.

    • NOTES (6)

      • Castmembers of "The Colbys" who were not previously introduced on "Dynasty" and who make their first appearance in this episode are Katharine Ross (who plays Jeff's estranged mother, Francesca Colby Hamilton), Joseph Campanella (who plays Constance's secret lover, Hutch Corrigan) and Ricardo Montalban (who plays Jason's business rival, Zachary Powers).

      • Many of the cast members of "The Colbys" were first introduced on the parent series, "Dynasty," shortly before the premiere of "The Colbys." Maxwell Caulfield (Miles) first appeared in Dynasty Episode #118: "The Aftermath." Charlton Heston (Jason) and Barbara Stanwyck (Constance) first appeared in Dynasty Episode #120: "The Californians." Stephanie Beacham (Sable), Tracy Scoggins (Monica), Claire Yarlett (Bliss) and Ken Howard (Garrett) first appeared in Dynasty Episode #123: "The Titans."

      • Actress Emma Samms transplants another "Dynasty" character, Fallon Carrington Colby, to the spin-off series. At the end of the previous season of "Dynasty," Samms replaced actress Pamela Sue Martin in the role of Fallon, and made her first appearance in Dynasty Episode #115: "Kidnapped."

      • When "The Colbys" first aired, it was titled Dynasty II: The Colbys for the first four episodes.

      • Actor John James (Jeff), an original "Dynasty" cast member, transplants his character to the spin-off series in this episode.

      • The premiere episode of The Colbys immediately followed Dynasty Episode #124: "The Decision" and picked up where that episode left off.
