TNT’s Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘The Prettiest Girl at the Ball’

Dallas, Hedging Your Bets, Linda Gray, Sue Ellen Ewing, TNT

He’s right

In “Hedging Your Bets,” a first-season “Dallas” episode, J.R. (Larry Hagman) approaches Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) at the Cattle Baron’s Ball.

SUE ELLEN: J.R., what are you doing here? I thought you weren’t well enough to even leave your room.

J.R.: I just came by to congratulate you. And you deserve it, honey. Look at you. And look at me. You won, honey. And I couldn’t be happier. [Turns to walk away]


J.R.: If you ask me, you’d make a hell of a governor. And if I do say so, you are still the prettiest girl at the ball.


  1. Loved this scene!!

  3. Destinee says:

    Oh yes, I just like to be spoiled!
