In “Dead Ends,” an eighth-season “Dallas” episode, Pam and Sue Ellen (Victoria Principal, Linda Gray) sit in a restaurant overlooking the Hong Kong skyline.
PAM: Quite a view, isn’t it?
SUE ELLEN: Oh, it’s beautiful. It’s almost a shame that we have to leave. Pam, I’m really sorry about how it turned out for you. But maybe we should make our return reservations.
PAM: Oh, I don’t think so. Not just yet.
SUE ELLEN: Are you serious?
PAM: Yes, I am. In fact, I think it’s time that I went on the offensive. [Motions for a nearby servant.] Waiter, may I have the phone, please? Thank you. [The waiter brings a phone to the table, plugs it into a wall jack. Pam dials a number.] Hello, may I speak with Mr. Chan? This is Pamela Ewing. Good morning, Mr. Chan. No, I’m not calling to say goodbye. I’m calling to say that I won’t be leaving Hong Kong until I see Mark Graison, because I’m convinced that Mr. Swanson is Mark Graison. You see, I’m very rich, and very determined. And if I have to, I’ll buy that damned clinic and walk in as the owner. Oh, but I would do that. So Mr. Chan, you can tell your Mr. Swanson that he can see me now or he can see me later, but he is going to see me. Goodbye, Mr. Chan. [Hangs up]
SUE ELLEN: Well, I am very impressed. Remind me never to cross you again. [Smiles]
PAM: [Sighs] Well, what good is the Ewing name and all that power if I don’t occasionally use it?
SUE ELLEN: I’ll remember that.
PAM: [Looks at the menu] Let me buy you lunch.
SUE ELLEN: I’m afraid to say no.
PAM: [Laughs] Come on.
