^^ Ewing_1.... No, I'm sure no one deleted it. If a thread ends up at the bottom of the page and hasn't been posted in in a certain amount of time... It falls off the board, automatically deleted. It's a way to keep the board trimmed.
But seriously, I think you're right. I remember watching a scene where Miss Ellie was telling Donna the family background, and how Bobby was Jock's favorite and Gary was her favorite, leaving JR out in the cold. Even Donna seemed to sympathize a little with JR! It explains why JR was so ruthlessly competitive - everything he did was to gain his father's approval - and why he was devastated to the point of not functioning at all when Jock passed away. JR was really a very interesting character, IMO!
JR's witty but sly offensive comments at the dinner table were so memorable .. always had to say something! to put somebody down!
lol am sure you will all remember some of them
he actually said it to Michelle Stevens about Pams chair - because Michelle was going to sit on miss ellie's chair and JR stopped her and said no you cant sit there, thats mama's chair
sit here.... that was Pams chair, didnt like her either
something like that lol
I think the final scene of that episode really showed what JR was all about. When Sue Ellen asked if he had pushed Pam, causing her to lose the baby, he said, "I did not." (That was true.) But when she asked, "Are you sorry she lost the baby?" JR did not answer, but the look on his face spoke volumes.
That was a classic episode, IMO.
and i loved jrs laugh.........................
