Dallas Scene of the Day: ‘I Can Do It’

Dallas, Linda Gray, Resurrection, Sue Ellen Ewing

Yes, she can

In “Resurrection,” a ninth-season “Dallas” episode, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) is in her room at the sanitarium when an orderly (Rex Ryon) enters.

SUE ELLEN: What do you want?

ORDERLY: Take it easy, Mrs. Ewing. It’s not what I want. It’s what I think you want.

SUE ELLEN: What do you mean?

ORDERLY: [Pulls out a liquor bottle] I just bet you could use some of this right now. Vodka. Oh, I don’t know if it’s your brand, but that doesn’t always matter, does it? I’m just wondering what this might be worth to you. A hundred dollars? Two hundred dollars? Well, you’re a real rich lady. There’s just no telling. And there’s a lot more where this came from. [Holds out the bottle] I think we can make a deal, don’t you? I can’t wait all day. What’s your answer?

SUE ELLEN: [Rushes to the bed, pushes the call button] Doctor. I’ll get the doctor.

ORDERLY: You’re not going to turn me in, are you? Now wait a minute, lady.

SUE ELLEN: Get out! You just get out. [He runs out of the room, she leans against the wall.] I can do it. I can do it. I know I can do it. I just need help. Help me. Help me.

  1. It reminds me of the 1st sanitarium visit where the male attendant was pro offering booze in exchange for $ to Miss Texas. As well as females. I think it was in mouthwash bottles.
