I don't know how I missed it all these years! I've watched the scene between Miss Ellie and Dusty Farlow before, but totally missed the amazing dialogue and acting by both sides. The episode is "Saving Grace" and Miss Ellie is making it clear to Dusty that he should stay away from Sue Ellen. If you can, watch the scene again. Dusty: I only want what's best for Sue Ellen Miss Ellie: Even if it means staying away from her? Dusty: I don't think it does. Miss Ellie: I do. And I'm asking you to respect my wishes. Dusty: It's not that simple. Miss Ellie: Then let me simplify it for you. Sue Ellen won't be needing your help any more. Dusty: She won't be in the rehabilitation center forever. Miss Ellie: She will be if she has you to fall back on. Dusty: I'm not a crutch for Sue Ellen. Miss Ellie: That's exactly what you are. And the sooner you realize it, the better off Sue Ellen will be. She got into that program herself, and she is going to get better by herself. She has chosen to take control of her life. Let her. Do I make myself clear? Jared Martin did a great job of underplaying the scene, allowing Barbara Bel Geddes to work her craft. And work it she did! I'm about to make a bold statement here: This might have been one of her finest performances of the entire series.
