I just watched "Requiem" from season 6 and at the end of the episode, Pam says to Bobby: "I have to get away from here. I can't live here anymore" The ensuing conversation goes like this: Bobby: You mean, you want to leave Southfork? Pam: I have to. Bobby: Pamela, that's a pretty big step! Pam: I spent the afternoon trying to work it out but I just can't live here. I have to leave. Bobby: (smiles) Alright, we'll find another place to live. Pam: You don't understand; I want to leave alone. Bobby: Without me, without Christopher? Pam: With Christopher, but without you. Bobby, I need time to think, away from you, away from Southfork, away from the Ewings. And away from everything that the Ewings stand for. *********************End of episode************** Ok, if I'm Bobby, right away I'm thinking: Christopher is a Ewing. Pam wants to take him away from everything my family stands for. So he can grow up learning everything the Barnes family stands for? So they can teach him to hate the Ewings and maybe change his last name to Barnes, or better yet, to Wentworth, in honor of the woman who abandoned Pam as an infant, left her in Digger's care, never even called or wrote to see how she was doing? Pam went looking for her, found her, and when she did, Rebecca looked her in the eye and said she wasn't Pam's mother - that Pam was mistaken. The same woman who just died because she was on her way to make my family's company "bleed." The same woman whose death Pam blames me for because clearly, in Pam's mind, that's where the blame belongs - not on Rebecca's decision to buy that plane (God forbid she'd travel with the common folk), to get on that plane to try to hurt my family, and then die because of pilot error, pure and simple. Pam wouldn't even have Christopher if it wasn't for me and now she wants to take him away from me, his uncle and aunt, his cousin, and his grandmother so he can grow up around Cliff? Let's see, Christopher loses me, Uncle JR, Aunt Sue Ellen, Cousin Lucy, Uncle Ray, Aunt Donna and his grandmother, but gains the opportunity to grow up around that termite, Cliff. He tried to commit suicide just last year, took 50 tranquilizers. That was just a few months after I had to save Pam from trying to throw herself off the roof of a 50 foot high building, and I'm supposed to trust them to keep my son safe? (Takes maybe half a second to think it over) Bobby: Pam you're free to leave if you want to; I'm not going to try to convince you to stay if you don't appreciate the life marrying me has given you, but do you think I'd let you take Christopher away from me, his grandmother and all the rest of his family here, so a man who hates me and everything about my family can help you raise him? No, Pam. Pam: You can't be serious? Bobby: Pam, look at me right now and tell me what is it that you see in my eyes that makes you think even for a second that I'd let you take my son away from me?
