In “Swan Song,” “Dallas’s” eighth-season finale, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) lies in a hospital bed, surrounded by Pam (Victoria Principal), Jenna (Priscilla Beaulieu Presley), J.R. (Larry Hagman), Miss Ellie (Donna Reed), Clayton (Howard Keel), Donna (Susan Howard) and Ray (Steve Kanaly).
BOBBY: Hey, Ray. [Sees Ellie] Oh, Mama. I’m sorry.
ELLIE: No. No, Bobby.
BOBBY: All that wasted time. We should’ve been married. Take care of Christopher. [Pam nods.] Charlie. [Jenna nods, sobs.] Tell them I love them. [The monitor shows his heart rate slowing.] Be good to each other. Be a family. I love you so much.
He winces in pain. The monitor flat lines, startling Pam.
ELLIE: No, no.
J.R.: Don’t do this to me, Bobby. Don’t leave me.
DONNA: Bobby, no.
Pam throws back her head and sobs, J.R. cries. Ray and Donna hug, sobbing. Ellie turns away into Clayton’s arms.
