    This time we're gonna take a look at some of Soapland's most memorable confrontations that took place at the office, as so many of them did. It was quite a common place for angry opponents to barge in or arguments to break out that included threats or pledges to destroy someone. So which were your favourites?

    Doesn't matter in which place of work that was, as long as it had and office and that's where the showdown took place. Also shootings are not included as this is more about verbal confrontations.

    The best one I've ever seen was in an episode of The Good Wife season 5. It sat trembling in my chair.

    Richard, exactly how office-y do you want it? Only the offices in the skyscraper buildings?
    I suddenly remember a very emotional Falcon Crest scene in a rather basic setting, but it's a company and there's a desk and computer and apparently the place to sign contracts and whatnot.
    The showdown itself isn't really about the business, btw.

    Come to think of it, Angela's office was in the mansion (like NuFallon's Fempire).

    Not just the skyscrapers, I had thought any office that was in a place of work. So for example Knots Landing motors office, or an office at Lotus Point would be fine. I didn't really think of Angela's study being her office, and it kinda was. But I think we'll keep it to more work buildings than home offices. So the New Globe, or the radio station, places like that would be fine.

    Well that all sounds fine, actually I'm intrigued to know what this scene is!

    My first guess is that it's ***** and ****** talking about ***** after ***** has run off with ******. And there's a letter involved. But I could be wrong.

    Actually, never mind. It fits better in another category that we haven't done yet. Which means there's more to come.

    Office showdowns....think think think
    *ahem*
    Adam, may I have a glass of water, please?

    I think technically for a showdown two people are required. But that is an awesome scene.

    Great topic @Richard Channing! Thank you :)

    My number one choice is Pam confronting JR after the wild goose chase with Gerald Kane. That was amazing! But technically that hasn’t got anything to do with business. They just hate each other. So does this count?

    Come to think of it, would her scene in her office slapping Gerald Kane be eligible as number two? That was also an outstanding scene but again wasn’t anything about business

    Return to Eden had some some scenes in Harper Mining and Tara’s too

    I’ll wait to see what others vote before concluding but if they are eligible they are my starters... :)

    Nothing beats a good Pam slap!

    1) Pam threatens J.R. in his office: Yeah the thorn in J.R.'s side for years is just about to up the ante. The eldest Ewing boy will get his just desserts, Barnes style and who better to do it than Pamela. Having discovered that the Texan Machiavelli was behind a wild goose chase; to look for Mark Graison Pam lets her nemesis know that she will back Jamie and Cliff for their share of the coveted Ewing Oil company. Pam was as mad as hell, just look at the video below:



    DALLAS.

    2) Jock's frank conversation with J.R. about the nationalisation of the Asian oil leases: Never one to mince his words the Ewing patriarch Jock shoots from the hip, about the nationalisation of the Asian oil leases. This happens after the Ewing banker (Vaughn Leland) barges into the office and accuses J.R. of knowing what was going to happen. Vaughn is down $20 million and the cartel have also suffered significant losses. J.R. replies to his father that he would never do that to his friends - DALLAS.

    3) Angela's less than cordial initial encounter with Richard: Angela has been buying up 'New Globe' stock and goes to the newspaper office, to have her first round of many verbal put downs between herself and Richard. Angela doesn't like what he has done to the look of his deceased father's office and tells 'Tricky Dicky' forthrightly that he has a lot to learn - FALCON CREST.

    4) Krystle and Alexis collide in the Denver Carrington offices: The two divas were noted for their hammer and tongs cat fights but Mrs. Dynasty (Alexis) digs at Blake's wife, alluding to her previous career as a secretary. Alexis says to the blonde heroine that the typing pool is on the first floor, while she is standing outside the ladies toilet. Krystle points out to her rival that she is standing outside the ladies and that she is the one who is lost. A scratching match almost happened - DYNASTY.

    5) Angela now owns 'The Globe': It took about 3 years for the wine matriarch to own 'The Globe' and she wastes no time in giving Richard his marching orders. Aided by the Falcon Crest attorney Greg Reardon and her grandson Lance the new boss is going to take the San Francisco newspaper to new heights, even after Richard dumps an acquisition on them which has plummeted $5 million - FALCON CREST.

    Any confrontation in an office is fine, doesn't matter what it's about. So both that you mentioned are eligible.

    2- Pam slaps Kane ("Dallas" Season 7)
    3- Pam argues with JR when she takes Bobby´s office ("Dallas" Season 8)
    4- Pam tells JR and Jock off after Cliff´s loss in the election ("Dallas" Season 1)
    5- Pam faces Marilee re the offshore deal ("Dallas" Season 6)

    Too bad this didn´t happen in an office...​
