In “Barbecue,” “Dallas’s” first-season finale, Tilly (Irma P. Hall) is filling drinks at the bar when Sam (Haskel Craver) approaches with a tray and motions toward Jock (Jim Davis), who is smoking and drinking out of the view of his guests.
SAM: He’s sneaking his cigarettes early today.
TILLY: He ’s snuck three of ’em sitting there. Ain’t like him to stay away from his guests so long. [Places champagne glasses on Sam’s tray]
SAM: Digger Barnes is here!
TILLY: Say what?
SAM: You heard me. The girl Bobby married is Digger’s daughter. So it figures Jock and Digger are bound to meet again.
TILLY: Yeah, but from the looks of him, it happened a long time before he was ready. [Motions toward the crowd] How are things out there?
TILLY: Oh, that ain’t no news. Tell me some news.
SAM: She’s on the nest – Digger’s girl.
TILLY: Now that’s news. How’s the missus and Big Brother taking it?
SAM: I don’t think they know about it yet.
TILLY: They ain’t going to like that. Who’s going to be the first to have a fight?
SAM: Too soon to tell.
TILLY: First to get drunk?
SAM: [Motions toward Jock] He’s got the head start.
