In “Sins of the Fathers,” an eighth-season “Dallas” episode, J.R. (Larry Hagman) is undressing in his bedroom when he notices a fur-clad Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) exiting hers.
J.R.: Sue Ellen?
SUE ELLEN: Oh, you’re back. Good. Have a nice dinner.
J.R.: Where you going all dressed up like that?
SUE ELLEN: I’m having dinner out.
SUE ELLEN: Yes. [Enters J.R.’s room] I’m bringing someone back in my life that I never should’ve lost in the first place.
J.R.: [Approaches her] When did this all come about?
SUE ELLEN: I went to Barnes-Wentworth this morning to see —
J.R.: [Sharply] You went where?
SUE ELLEN: [Smiles] I just told you.
J.R.: You went to see Cliff Barnes?
SUE ELLEN: Would that bother you?
J.R.: I don’t believe it. Are you really trying to rub my nose in it by going out with that idiot?
SUE ELLEN: Well, he must have something. Look at all the women that the two of you have shared. Julie Grey, Afton, myself. [Smiles] As a matter of fact, Cliff is a wonderful lover.
J.R.: [Grabs her, pulls her into the room, slams the door behind them] I’m not going to let you do this to me.
SUE ELLEN: I’m not going to do it to you. I’m going to do it to Cliff. You never really wanted me anyway, so why does it bother you what I do? [He moves her onto the bed, lies on top of her]
J.R.: Because, honey, you belong to me and not anybody else is going to have you. I’ll tell you that right now.
SUE ELLEN: It’s a little late for that, J.R.
J.R.: [Chuckles] You’re just trying to get even with me, but you still want me, don’t you? [He tries to kiss her, she turns her head]
SUE ELLEN: Don’t! Get off of me. No! Get off of me!
J.R.: Oh, darlin’, I know what you like. [Nuzzles her neck] I know what you like, Sue Ellen. [Gasps] I know what you like, darlin’, and this is it. [They kiss — until she knees him in the groin.] Oh!
SUE ELLEN: And I know what you like — and I’m sure that wasn’t it. [She gets up and leaves him on the bed, writhing in pain.]
