Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Hate This Family!’

Charlene Tilton, Dallas, Lucy Ewing, Pam Ewing, Runaway, Victoria Principal

Pout it out

In “Runaway,” a second-season “Dallas” episode, Pam (Victoria Principal) enters her bedroom and finds the dresses she brought home for Lucy on the floor. Lucy (Charlene Tilton) stands at the window, pouting.

PAM: Well, I guess you didn’t like them. [Lucy doesn’t respond.] Honey, Miss Ellie or Sue Ellen will probably bring you into town later. [Lucy continues staring silently out the window.] We’ll find something you like.

LUCY: [Facing Pam] I am old enough to pick out my own clothes! [Turns back to the window]

PAM: Yes, you are. All right, just trying to help.

LUCY: [Faces Pam again] This is supposed to be my birthday party! Grandma is making out the invitation list, Sue Ellen is gonna hire some old-fogey band – and J.R.’s gonna use it for one of his big deals! [Begins crying] And now you’re going to buy my clothes! I hate this family! [Runs out of the room and past a distraught Pam]
