In my previous post, Dallas Vacation, I had mentioned that I will write a post listing some of JR’s (television character in the Dallas TV Serial) punch lines that I like. A few of those punch lines were already mentioned by a reader while writing his comments. I am not going to repeat them. These are the ones I like:
John Ross (JR) Ewing
Good Morning JR.
That remains to be seen.
Like my daddy always said: if you can’t get in the front door, just go around to the back.
Anything worth having is worth going for – all the way.
You’re becoming a pretty poor excuse for a wife.
I wouldn’t give you the dust off my car.
A conscience is like a boat or a car. If you feel you need one, rent it.
Contracts were made to be broken, but a handshake is the law of God.
Never interfere with a man who’s correcting his wife.
Never tell the truth when a good lie will do it.
All that matters is winnin’.
Revenge is the single most satisfying feeling in the world.
Lots of men have tried to run roughshod over me – you can visit them in the cemetery.
And finally, my personal all time favorite:
JR: Call our lawyer now and ask him this question.
Bobby: JR, it is 2 am in the morning and he is sleeping.
JR: Wake him up. For the money we are paying, he should be sleeping on our front porch.
