In “Deeds and Misdeeds,” an eighth-season “Dallas” episode, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) enters a hospital room, where John Ross (Omri Katz) lies in bed.
SUE ELLEN: Hello, sweetheart.
JOHN ROSS: [Turns to face her] Mama.
SUE ELLEN: [Strokes his hair] My poor baby.
JOHN ROSS: Where were you?
SUE ELLEN: Well, I’m here.
JOHN ROSS: Were you here when they operated on me?
SUE ELLEN: No. Mommy was out. I didn’t even know about the operation until it was all over.
JOHN ROSS: Oh.
SUE ELLEN: I’m so sorry. It was a mistake. Mommy should have been here.
JOHN ROSS: That’s okay. You didn’t know.
SUE ELLEN: How’s your tummy? Does it hurt?
JOHN ROSS: A little bit. But not like it did when Grandma brought me to the hospital.
SUE ELLEN: Well, it hurts right now because of the operation, but it’ll go away soon.
JOHN ROSS: I know. [Reaches up and hugs her]
SUE ELLEN: Sweetheart, easy. Don’t strain yourself. [Kisses him] I’m so sorry. Mommy should have been here so you didn’t have to go through that operation alone.
JOHN ROSS: It wasn’t your fault.
SUE ELLEN: [Crying] Yes, it was. [Kisses him] Yes, it was. I’m so sorry. [Kisses him]
