Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Want You Out of My Life for Good!’

Dallas, Hush Hush Sweet Jessie, Pam Ewing, Victoria Principal

Pam o’war

In “Hush, Hush, Sweet Jessie,” a seventh-season “Dallas” episode, Katherine (Morgan Brittany) enters her bedroom, followed by Pam (Victoria Principal).

KATHERINE: Come on in, Pam. I was just dressing.

PAM: I want to talk to you about the letter.

KATHERINE: Letter? What letter? [Looks through her closet]

PAM: The letter that you read to Bobby. The letter from me to my attorney before we ever field for a divorce. The letter that said that I wanted to lead a different kind of life away from Bobby. The letter that I never wrote, Katherine.

KATHERINE: [Turns to face her] Now Pam, just a minute.

PAM: Did you write it? You did, didn’t you? [Katherine turns back to the closet.] Did you write it?

KATHERINE: Well, yes. J.R. forced me to. [Chooses an outfit, faces Pam] It was all his fault.

PAM: J.R. forced you? J.R. forced you to write a letter to break up me and Bobby?

KATHERINE: [Puts on a dress, smirks] That’s right.

PAM: You’re a liar.

KATHERINE: No, I’m not. You know how much he wanted the two of you divorced. And so did I. [Fastens a belt, smiles]

PAM: I can’t believe what I’m hearing.

KATHERINE: What difference does it make to you anyway? You left Bobby, didn’t you?

PAM: He was still my husband!

KATHERINE: But you walked out on him. [Walks toward her] You didn’t want him anymore, and I did. [Retrieves a scarf from the bed, drapes it around her neck] I fell in love with Bobby from the first time I saw him. And I’ve loved him ever since, Pam. And I’m going to have him too.

PAM: [Slaps her, sending a gasping Katherine onto the bed] Listen to me. You may be my sister, but I never want to see you again. I want you out of my life for good!

Katherine rubs her cheek and glares as Pam leaves.
