TNT’s Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Don’t Want Them to Be Like Us’

Bobby Ewing, Changing of the Guard, Dallas, Patrick Duffy, TNT

Brother, where art thou?

In “Changing of the Guard,” “Dallas’s” first episode, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) visits the nursing home, where he sits at the side of the motionless J.R. (Larry Hagman).

BOBBY: All those fights, J.R., over Ewing Oil and Southfork. Those fights changed me. Changed me in a way I don’t like. I worry about Christopher and John Ross. I want them to have a chance to be a family. Without all the bitterness and bad blood you and I had. I don’t want them to be like us. But, all that being said, I do miss you. [Winces, grabs his stomach] Well, I hope you know. I always loved you. [He rises, kisses J.R. on the head and leaves.]
