Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Miss You, Sue Ellen’

At last!

At last!

In “Dallas’s” fifth-season episode “Anniversary,” J.R. and Sue Ellen (Larry Hagman, Linda Gray) sit on her sofa and watch a video recording of her appearance in the Miss Texas pageant.

J.R.: Can you imagine that was 14 years ago tonight?

SUE ELLEN: Fourteen years.

J.R.: You haven’t changed a bit. Not to me.

SUE ELLEN: You went to a lot of trouble for that.

J.R.: Oh, just the research.

SUE ELLEN: But why? I don’t understand.

J.R.: Well, I didn’t think you’d remember. But that pageant is where we first met. I was one of the judges. It was the first time I set eyes on you, Sue Ellen. I got the thinking last week, you know, the divorce and everything. Well, you know my alarm clock mind for dates. It just started me thinking about the old days.

SUE ELLEN: Did you? And?

J.R.: I miss you, Sue Ellen. I wanted to be with you tonight. My life just hasn’t been the same without you.

They kiss.
