    Bobby wasn't always a good guy, even though the show makes it seem like they want the audience to always believe Bobby is "the good guy." He was willing to have Sue Ellen sign a fake paper stating she had no interesting Kristen's baby and no knowledge of the father. Then Bobby told her that she could never tell JR about this. Bobby was trying to illegally adopt a baby that he believed JR was the father of and his plan was to try to make sure JR never found out that Christopher was rightfully his. Both Bobby and Pam were willing to steal JR's son when they thought Christopher was JR's son. That's far worse than anything JR ever did to Bobby or Pam.

    Bobby was terrible to do this! And he has done other bad things, too! (See my post in your thread about Bobby's temper) I hate how he always pretended to be some angel and lectured JR when he did bad things too!

    Bobby did it because he was worried about Pam that if it was revealed that JR was the father she will lose the baby and it might push her over into a worse mental state. What Bobby did was illegal but it was because she loved Pam, you all are forgetting than JR was willing to let the truth remain hidden by using it to black mail Bobby to get his shares of Ewing Oil now that is even worse. Bobby did do some bad things, he was a good guy but not perfect, where as JR did a lot of bad things because he was evil and the difference is Bobby had a conscience, JR did not.

    The way you describe the timeline is somewhat misleading. Bobby schemed to steal the child he though belonged to JR long before JR asked for Bobby to vote with him in exchange for letting Bobby and Pam keep what everyone thought was his child. If Bobby had a conscience, he'd have realized that nothing justifies scheming to steal another man's son including using Sue Ellen's anger at JR to get her to lie on an affidavit that she had no knowledge of the father of Kristin's baby. He brought Christopher home and when Pam asked is that baby for us he could have replied "No, it's JR and Kristin's baby." He chose not to. That was a deliberate decision on his part. If Pam ended up getting more depressed it would have been because Bobby disingenuously led her to believe he had adopted the baby when actually he was bringing it to JR. Bobby was so crooked, so corrupt and amoral that he felt as long as his wife wanted to adopt a baby, that justified him stealing his brother's son! That is evil! He did it partially because Pam was so lacking in discipline and felt she was so entitled compared to the rest of the populace that the rules of adoption didn't apply to her. She lacked the discipline to wait as long to adopt as all other families have to wait to adopt and because she had no discipline or patience, that as supposed to justify stealing a man's child so she could claim it as her own? That's downright sickening.

    In fact Bobby and Pam called him scum just because JR asked for what was relatively a tiny favor in exchange for letting them keep Christopher. JR new Bobby and Pam would be good parents to what he thought was his won so he was going to settle for being known as only Christopher's uncle. Isn't it fair that after JR made such a huge sacrifice to help Bobby and Pam that they owed him something in return as thanks? JR never did anything as awful as trying to steal what he thought was his other's child. Remember this was also at a time when JR had lost custody of John Ross and he had no son left at Southfork. Christopher would have guaranteed JR that he always had at least custody of one of his two sons. Who can't understand what that would mean to a man who was devastated that his son was now living away from Southfork and might never return? And yet JR was willing to make that ultimate sacrifice just to help Bobby and Pam, especially help Pam get over her suicidal ideations. What he wanted in return, some voting shares that would be worthless in a few months when Jock's will was read was absolutely insignificant in comparison to losing his son. he asked for about the smallest show of thanks he possibly could have asked for and yet was condemned for it. Apparently Bobby and Pam were so self righteous, narcissistic and above the law that they didn't feel the least but guilty about trying to steal JR's child and after JR granted them this tremendous favor they were outraged that he wanted any show of thanks in return at all!

    Pam was almost as much to blame as Bobby. After Bobby finally told Pam he bought Christopher from Farraday and JR was the father she still said "Christopher belongs to us. You (Bobby" are Christopher's real daddy. I'd fight JR to the death to avoid returning his son to him"! That shows what a lowlife Pam was and what an arrogant, narcissistic and even sociopathic mindset she had regarding right and wrong and her utter disregard for the laws of our country.

    As JR reminded Bobby and Ray, their sting on Walt Driscoll - directly or indirectly depending on your view - contributed equally to Driscoll crashing in to Sue Ellen and Mickey.

    It most certainly did & it's very telling on-screen the looks you get between Bobby & Ray.

    I believe if Bobby & Ray hadn't interfered & let JR's operation take it's course that Driscoll being arrested & ruined wouldn't've happened & he wouldn't've tried to kill JR resulting in Sue Ellen & Mickey being hurt. :(

    Bobby is one of my favourites, but I always found him intensely disloyal. The worst thing for me was when he befriended Holly Harwood after what she had done to Sue Ellen. I could have slapped him so hard for that. He was a bit of a sap sometimes - his forgiveness of Shiela Foley came very fast as well.

    I loved Bobby at the time and thought he was the good guy

    BUT the older and wiser i get the more I think Jock would have been proud of him, he was far from being a good guy

    he was a hot head, who lost his temper too easily
    used his fists and got into way too many fights

    BUT the worst things he did was setting up George Hicks with prostitutes and cocaine, bribery and blackmail and same with Walt Driscoll

    Also marrying Blandie blonde April and Annie get your gun
    poor choice there Bob!!

    and he wasnt romantic with Pam, never whisking her off to exotic far flung locations!

    I actually loved Holly on Dallas and would have been happy for her to end up with Bobby, he was friends with her before she slept with JR

    PS who was Sheila Foley!? oh yes, final season and erased from memory!

    Always thought he was a bit rude to Mark Graison even factoring in the circumstances.

    How was Bobby rude??? Mark was the ass and the disrespectful one that went after Bobby's wife from the moment he met her and try to down play it by saying he just "trying to help her", help himself to her. Mark was such a two face arrogant bastard.

    "The Worst Thing Bobby Ever Did?"

    Spinning in the shower and scaring the hell out of Pam and us viewers by saying, "Good morning."

    I wish he slipped on the soap and died. :mad:

    I agree . I just watched that season. Bobby keeps Christopher , but when J.R. blackmails him he punches and tells him he's scum. It's pretty ridiculous.

    The other thing with Bobby - OK, JR's involvement with Calhoun ultimately cost Ewing Oil, but Bobby's laying off of workers led to that woman Scottfield (through her brother) feeding Wendell the information. So Bobby wasn't innocent there.
