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.]
