  1. “Family is like making a cake from scratch, Real messy!” -Miss Ellie (quoted by Bobby)

  2. I only just discovered the Miss Ellie Rule. Excellent idea! The LAST thing I would want to hear is: “Miss Ellie would be ASHAMED of you.”

  3. Miss Ellie would have said a lot about today’s Dallas, especially all that went on in Mexico surrounding JR’s motives. The first thing is admiration for the loyalty to the Ewing Family, but the second would be the dangers in Mexico.

    Dallas season 8 was not bad, infact it’s among the best, Donna Reed was great as the new Miss Ellie! Phillip Capice was still the executive producer! Janilee Harrison and Dack Rambo was added to the series! which I thought was cool, also what happened between Jenna and Marchetta was worth looking at again! season 8 is definitely great.

  5. Thank you for this site! I found which season the episode, “Rock Bottom,” was in and can watch it on IMDB.
