Dallas, Deeds and Misdeeds, John Ross Ewing, Linda Gray, Omri Katz, Sue Ellen Ewing

Significant mother

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.


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]

  1. U c, it shows that Husband J.R. overreacted as J.R. the IIIrd was just happy that his mommy was all home safe with him post recovery!

  2. This was a good scene and for me there was not many good and tender scenes that mother and son due to the writing, but it was great to see Linda and little Omri Katz show case their talents!!!

  3. Elizabete says:

    Sue Ellen was a marvelous mother and John Ross knew that!
