The day the running stopped

In “Knots Landing’s” pilot, new residents Gary and Valene (Ted Shackelford, Joan Van Ark) walk toward their house after witnessing Sid fighting with Annie.

GARY: Come on, it’s OK. We’ll talk about it while we unpack? Uh, we are gonna unpack, aren’t we? [They stop and face each other.] Val, I’ve been running all my life. I’ve gotta stop sometime.

VAL: This place is not … we can’t…. I don’t know.

GARY: Hell, Valene. Knots Landing’s just a place. Look, I can’t run anymore. This is my last chance not to run.

They walk into the house.
