Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Miss Her Too’

Bobby Ewing, Christopher Ewing, Dallas, Patrick Duffy, Trial and Error

Dad of night

In “Trial and Error,” an eighth-season “Dallas” episode, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) enters Christopher’s darkened bedroom at Southfork, where the child (Eric Farlow) sits on the bed.


BOBBY: Hi. [Sits on the bed, turns on a lamp] Come here, come here. [Picks him up, embraces him] Oh, there we go. Mama’s not here right now.

CHRISTOPHER: I want Mommy.

BOBBY: I know. She’s gone away for a little while, but I’m here.


BOBBY: Yeah, did you have a bad dream?

CHRISTOPHER: I want Mommy.

BOBBY: I know. I miss her too. Boy, life sure has gotten twisted around, hasn’t it? Sometimes you live with her, sometimes you live with me. It must be hard on you, buddy. It’s sure not the way we had things planned for you. Or for ourselves.


BOBBY: [Kisses him] Go to sleep.

  1. I loved this scene between father and son although short and sweet it was the highlight of the episode to me, so cute how he kept saying mommy and “I want mommy”. Little Eric is such a charm I also wonder how they get a young boy like this to call VP and PD mommy and daddy separate from his real parents.
