-> Episode 217. Angelica Nero and a poisoned hatpin. Nuff said.
-> Episode 222. Pam wakes up to find a a guy who looks like Bobby in her shower. Your mileage may vary about this one.

* After hearing one too many insults about J.R. at his wake, it's ''Christopher'', not John Ross, who throws the first punch at a heckler. The [[BashBrothers two]] then quickly dominate the wake and soundly beat the hecklers and troublemakers.

Added DiffLines:

* From the original run: basically any scene in which J.R. has a clever/charmingly nasty quip which rips into Pam or Ray. The best example of this is in the episode "Ewing Inferno" at the end of Season 6, during a scene between Pam and J.R. at the Ewing Oil offices.

* A meta-example for the new series: the fact that the old cast has been integrated with the new characters in a way that doesn't seem out of place or forced is really awesome. Let's face it, it wouldn't be ''Dallas'' without Bobby and JR.
