    Were Alexis and Racine (PD) the only ones with a prominent bathroom? Sable had a dressing room (the mirror with the light bulbs) but I think we only saw her bathtub in Dynasty during her telephone conversation with Alexis?

    I recall seeing Laura in a bubble bath scene (in her old house on the cul-de-sac) on Knots Landing. After another falling-out with Greg, Laura retreated home and was soaking her cares away when Greg showed up. He stood on the other side of the bathroom door for a while, begging for forgiveness as they fell into their old habit of witty bantering.

    Greg: "When do you plan on getting out of there?"
    Laura: "Tell me when you're going to leave, then add ten minutes!'
    Greg: "I don't want to break this door down. It would be too....dramatic."
    Laura: "...not to mention dumb, since it's not locked."

    By her belly button because she's had so much cosmetic surgery.

    1. The Ballroom at The Carrington mansion



    [​IMG]

    We only ever got to see this in the pilot as it's filmed in the real Ballroom at Filoli, but I guess we should assume it's still a part of the Carrington mansion even though it's never to be seen again. It is truly a spectacular room and it's the height of palatial grandeur that Dynasty always aspired to. From the murals, to the chandeliers to that huge fireplace, it's all so gorgeous.


    2. Sable's dressing room



    Just off the master bedroom this is much more than your average en suite. I have a thing about en suites and this one is a fabulous fantasy one that I wish was just off my bedroom, even though it's about twice the size of my bedroom. I love the wardrobes that are disguised behind Japanese art, the mirror surrounded by light bulbs, the luxurious chaise longue. It's the perfect place to retreat to when your husband is carrying on with your whore of a sister.


    3. The Library at the Carrington mansion

    [​IMG]

    It exudes wealth and status, and even though it's huge, the wood paneling, fireplace and rich brown leather sofas manage to make it warm, inviting, and almost cozy. It's also the backdrop for so many wonderful scenes over the years.


    4. Angela's study

    [​IMG]

    It's a beautiful room and the perfect HQ for an evil grandma. I also love how when the doors open they look straight out at the main entrance and those beautiful stained glass windows.


    5. Southfork living room

    [​IMG]

    Easily the most beautiful and lavish room at Southfork, the perfect backdrop for cocktails and bitching before dinner.

    I don't think I've ever seen it from this angle.

    And extra points for the Bonus Miles.

    Once, just once I wish one of those annoying wives on House Hunters would walk into a room of a prospective home and use this line.

    I think it's time for me to tally up the votes.
