Great pictures Karin.
Some of the first screencaps:
Thank you for sharing all of those great season one screencaps Southfork88.
You know those caps from "Winds of Vengeance" reminds me of when I showed that episode to a younger friend who hadn't seen Dallas before, about two years ago. After those dramatic ending shots she turned to me and was like, "now we have to watch the next episode". She was so curious to find out what would happen to JR/SE next. So imagine her surprise when the next episode was about something completely different. I guess this also proves in a way that Dallas really worked best when the storylines started to drag out over longer arcs rather than when it was an episodic, self-contained show.
And finally here's some more reposted screencaps from my photobucket. JR & Sue Ellen in one of the later seasons after she'd saved his life by telling Nick's father that it had been an accident. I think this scene really showed that they weren't quite over each other yet as he was almost courting her in the same way as he did when they were divorced.
Naturally Cally didn't like what she saw. Do you think they would have done a triangle with Sue Ellen/JR/Cally if Linda hadn't left the show when she did?
I'm not sure if they would have but this scene almost seemed to indicate it.
That's all for now,
Goodbye Sue Ellen
Karin Schill and southfork88, I love all of the screen caps the both of you are posting of JR and Sue Ellen. I love watching them and their dsyfunctional relationship.
Aww wedding number two. Somehow I can't watch that photo without thinking of...Cliff Barnes making a fool out of himself trying to stop the ceremony and later JR and Cliff starting the biggest pool fight in the history of the show when they fight over Sue Ellen. lol Their wedding sure didn't turn out well. But oh how entertaining it was to watch. I just love all the drama. Also has anyone else noticed the look of the minister's face when he starts wiping the sweat off his forehead?
Oh and do you remember the wedding publicity photo with the toaster?
I can't seem to find it right now. But I think that clearly showed that funny was what the writers were really aiming for at this point of the show. But I just love it.
Come to think of it, it seems like most Southfork weddings were funny and eventful. Like when JR married Cally. I really love how Larry (who directed that episode) placed Sue Ellen right behind the couple in this shot:
I think the images speaks for themselves.
In this one Sue Ellen clearly shows that she is not over JR and it hurts to see him marry someone else.
In this one, notice the happy groom... lol
Notice where our duo are standing and how they look at each other...such intensity.
Earlier Sue Ellen visits her old bedroom and picks up JR's tie.
Her facial expression says it all really...
Seriously I don't think JR would even have married Cally if Sue Ellen hadn't taught Cally her tricks to get JR to marry her. Another thing I've noticed is how JR kisses his bride twice in both weddings. But of course JR & Sue Ellen's kisses lasts longer...
That's all for now,
P.S. Thank you for the caps Southfork88. I really enjoy seeing them.
Oh and Sanda I love watching JR & Sue Ellen and their dysfunctional marriage too... D.S.
I loved JR and Sue Ellen's second wedding. My favorite part of their wedding was when JR and Cliff got into a huge pool fight over Sue Ellen during their wedding reception and half of the guests ended up in the pool. I love Bobby and Pam but I felt sorry for them when they found out from Ray that Jenna was carrying Bobby's baby on their wedding day.

The First Wedding
Barbecue Five - Season 1984-1985
To this day I believe the characters of J.R., and Sue Ellen to be the most dynamic couple ever to appear on television. Personally, nothing since has captured my attention than this couple. Their chemistry on-screen was electrifying. It was like watching characters from the golden era that was Hollywood. Great dialogue, long scenes.
Thanks for joining us in this thread Rove. I agree with you, JR/SE were simply magic to watch. I've never thought of them as having a golden era of Hollywood vibe to them before but come to think of it I think you are right. Dallas was classic TV at it's best. The characters seemed so real that watching the show you had that "Fly on the wall" feeling to it. Especially in the beginning when it still had very much 70s realism over it. Before it turned all glamorous in the 1980s.
Thanks for all the photos Southfork88.
Then finally here's another question for all of you, which was your favorite JR/SE reconcilation?
Mine was ironically enough in the dream season as it seemed like a natural conclusion to their journey that season. I loved how Sue Ellen hit rock bottom and rebuilt her life and how JR fell in love with her all over again.
So well here's some screen caps from the dream season:
The kitchen kiss...
Giving her the new ring...
