Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘Kill Me’

Dallas, Dusty Farlow, Jared Martin, Linda Gray, Those Eyes

Suicide watch

In “Those Eyes,” a ninth-season “Dallas” episode, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), lying in a hospital detoxification unit, covers her eyes when Dusty (Jared Martin) enters and sets on her bed.

DUSTY: You have nothing to be ashamed of, nothing to be afraid of anymore. [Pulls her hands away from her face] Sue Ellen, I’m here because I love you. I’m here to keep that promise I made to help you. No matter what it takes, no matter how long it takes. Because I want to see you healthy again. Because I want you.

SUE ELLEN: I want a drink.

DUSTY: Oh, God, no, darling. A drink would kill you.

SUE ELLEN: [Whispering] Kill me.

DUSTY: Sue Ellen, no. Don’t be like this. Just hang on. Hang on to me. [Embraces her]

J.R. (Larry Hagman) enters and spots them.

J.R.: Farlow! [Takes off his hat, tosses it aside] What the hell are you doing here? Let go of my wife, you hear? [Pulls Dusty away from her, grabs him by his jacket lapels]

DUSTY: Settle down, J.R. I’m warning you!

J.R.: You bastard. I ought to tear your head off.

DUSTY: You stay away from me, and you stay away from Sue Ellen. [Pushes him away, sending J.R. crashing into medical carts]

J.R.: Listen, is this the way you’re helping her? Huh? Is this the way you’re helping her? You’re a genius, you are! [Grabs him and punches him in the gut, sending him onto a bed] Now you get out of here, or I’ll kill you, I swear it.

DUSTY: [Rising] I love her, and I’m never going to let you hurt her again, you —

As they grab each other’s lapels, Sue Ellen rises between them.

SUE ELLEN: [Screaming] No, no! [Collapses onto the bed as orderlies and a doctor pull J.R. and Dusty away from each other.]

  1. Of course Sue Ellen shouldn’t be ashamed, its an addiction!

  2. Dan in WI says:

    JR really needs to make up his mind. An episode ago he’s telling Dusty to throw Sue Ellen over his shoulder and taker her off Southfork. Now’s he’s telling Dusty to keep away.
