In “No Good Deed,” a first-season “Dallas” episode, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) visits Miss Ellie’s Southfork gravesite.
BOBBY: I spent the last 20 years trying to protect this land. Protect your legacy. I remember you once told me that family is like baking a cake from scratch. Real messy. I wish I could tell you things are different, Mama, but they’re not. Our family is as fractured and dysfunctional as always. And I keep trying to think what you’d do if you were here. But I know: You’d do whatever it takes to protect the family. And that’s just what I’m gonna do, Mama.
