Sue Ellen: Once a cheater, always a cheater. I should have learned that lesson the first time around.
John Ross: You donít know what youíre talking about, Mama. Yeah, yeah, Candace was in my office and the crazy bitch was all over me. And I turned her down!
Sue Ellen: BULLSHIT! I know what I saw!
John Ross: You donít know, because youíre drunk! I am telling you the truth!
Sue Ellen: Even drunk, I know the sound of a lie, and you are an expert at it, just like your father.
John Ross: I AM NOT MY FATHER!!! Are you so hell-bent on punishing J.R. for his sins that youíre willing to destroy the relationship with your only son? Damn it, I need you Mom, and you sided with them. Iím your son. You remember that? Or are you too damn addled to remember who I am? [Reaches for the bottle, holds it up] Why are you doing this to yourself again, huh?
Sue Ellen: [Sobbing] Donít you get it? You did this to me. You and your father.
John Ross: No, Mama. You did this to yourself. Youíre so busy seeing the ghost of J.R. in me that you cannot stop to take a hard look in the damn mirror. You want me to take responsibility for my actions? Then you take responsibility for yours. [Walks away, leaves the house, slams the door behind him]
