Question 3 of 10

Question 9 of 10
9. Bobby, Pam and Cliff learned about a woman who had spent a lot of time at the hospital during the same time that Sue Ellen and baby John Ross had been there. Her name was Priscilla Duncan.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Before the opening credits (and, that familiar "Dallas" theme song) played there was a lengthy re-cap of the previous episode; it was over three minutes of review. Then the opening scene was at the hospital. Which member of the Ewing family did the Lieutenant from the Dallas Police Department interview (apparently) first?

Answer: Sue Ellen

It was Sue Ellen but she was of very little assistance. She seemed to be uncertain of everything - when she left the hospital, when she had seen her baby, who may have had access to the baby - she could help with nothing. Sue Ellen began to mumble phrases about it being her fault and she had done some terrible things; then, J.R. ended that interview very abruptly. J.R. not only ended the interrogation he convinced the lieutenant it would be best if he and Sue Ellen just "go home and let them (i.e., the police and FBI) do their job".

Then an overly consoling J.R. escorted a weeping and blubbering Sue Ellen out of the hospital but not before the doctor gave her "something to calm her down".
2. J.R. had called his mother from the hospital to tell her about the baby's disappearance (also shown in the previous episode). Miss Ellie began to get word to the other family members to come to the ranch. A trusted ranch hand was sent to make sure Lucy arrived without incident. What was Lucy doing when the ranch hand found her?

Answer: She was on campus and just leaving a school building - either after or between classes.

The Southfork ranch employee did find Lucy just as she came out of a building - obviously on a university campus. She was carrying her school books and chatting with her girl friend. He was not able to give Lucy any information about why she had been summoned only that he was to assure her quick and safe arrival. Bobby arrived at the same time as Lucy; Pam was not home yet. Bobby insisted that he be the one to find Pam and bring her home.

It was very obvious the Ewings were concerned that whoever had kidnapped the baby may try to harm another family member, as well.
3. J.R. arrived at Southfork with a very incoherent Sue Ellen followed by two detectives. As the detectives placed the tap on the household phones what incident - besides the baby's kidnapping - was discussed that certainly put J.R. on the defensive?

Answer: Bobby had been kidnapped and the Ewings "handled it themselves".

J.R. all too quickly told the policeman when Bobby was kidnapped and the family acted on its own behalf to "get Bobby back, no one was hurt and it did not cost ... a cent". The lead detective summed up his concerns about how the Ewings handled themselves when Bobby had been kidnapped by simply saying, "You were lucky".

By then news of the baby's kidnapping had made all of the local media outlets. Pam heard about it from a street vendor's radio as she walked on a downtown street. Pam arrived at The Store (her place of employment) just as Bobby arrived to look for her there. Bobby and Pam argued because Bobby blamed Cliff for the baby's kidnapping.
4. During a most inopportune moment, a visitor arrived at the Ewings' front door. Somehow this person had convinced the police to allow passage to the house. Who was this person - who only Miss Ellie seemed to recognize at the time?

Answer: Mrs. Reeves, the baby's nurse

This was a truly strange scene, even strange for "Dallas" standards. It seemed Miss Ellie was the ONLY member of the family who recognized/identified Mrs. Reeves. No one else seemed aware a nurse had been hired to care for Sue Ellen's baby, let alone that she was expected to commence work THAT day. And, how did she get of clearance of so much security? Somehow she did; maybe it was the white dress or the pulled-back gray hair or the black horn-rim glasses.

By the way, in this episode Mrs. Reeves was portrayed by Jocelyn Brando. That is correct - the older sister of Marlon Brando.
5. Pam went to Cliff's apartment because she was sure Bobby would go there to confront him. J.R. loaded a pistol and left Southfork for his office. Then a call came into the ranch. Who went with Jock (and the police) in response to a call about where to find the baby?

Answer: Ray

Jock answered the phone only to be told - by a woman - that she had taken the baby and was now sorry she had done it. Jock was told he could find the baby at City Hall beneath the flags. Ray had only been in the den a few minutes when the call was received; he left with Jock.
6. When J.R. arrived at the offices of Ewing Oil it appeared to be business as usual - both secretaries were at their desks - but that would soon change. J.R. received a call from Jeb Ames who implied he had kidnapped J.R.'s son and would return him if J.R. paid a certain sum. What amount did Jeb demand?

Answer: One million dollars

It was obvious Jeb Ames enjoyed what he knew to be an anxious moment for his former friend, J.R. Jeb smirked as he told J.R. a million dollars should "tide him over ... in his hour of need". J.R. knew Jeb (and Willie Joe) well enough to know that, indeed, they may have had something to do with his son's disappearance; he called his banker (Vaughn Leland) and ordered the money - just as Jeb had demanded.
7. Pam waited at Cliff's apartment until he returned from a business trip to Austin. Together they talked about the details of the baby's disappearance. As expected an irate Bobby came to Cliff's apartment just a bit later. Pam and Cliff convinced Bobby they should work together. Where was the first place the three of them went together?

Answer: The hospital where John Ross had been born

Bobby, Pam and Cliff did go to the hospital. They demanded to see all of the records concerning patients and to have the opportunity to talk with staff - anyone who was at the hospital while John Ross was there. Just as Cliff and Bobby were about to admit they had searched every record Pam remembered something - or, more correctly someone - who may have a connection to her nephew's disappearance.
8. A heavily sedated Sue Ellen had joined the family in the den at Southfork by the time Jock returned to the ranch. Mrs. Reeves served coffee to all of them. Everyone seemed so very concerned. Everyone except Sue Ellen, that is. What had she vowed - aloud - in the baby's nursery just before she came downstairs?

Answer: That no one would ever hurt her and make her cry again

These must have been very challenging scenes for Linda Gray to play. Sue Ellen's drama level was above-and-beyond. During this time, in (almost) every scene she had been either drunk, sedated, detached, angry, spiteful or faking "sick". In the scene in the nursery she made it clear she was not going to become emotionally attached to her baby because both J.R. and Cliff had done nothing but use her and hurt her.

She vowed - aloud - to never let that happen to her again.
9. Bobby, Pam and Cliff learned about a woman who had spent a lot of time at the hospital during the same time that Sue Ellen and baby John Ross had been there. Her name was Priscilla Duncan. The trio of would-be-detectives went to visit Ms. Duncan at her house. When she showed them her baby what did they see that confirmed their suspicions?

Answer: The baby was wearing a hospital bracelet labeled "Ewing".

The trio of "detectives" had learned a few facts about Ms. Duncan before they went her house. She had given birth to a very premature baby about the same time John Ross was born. Then her baby died; her husband left her when he learned there was to be no baby to "tie" him to her. It was all too much emotionally for her. She needed a baby. She took John Ross.
10. A touchingly tearful and obviously remorseful Ms. Duncan apologized to Sue Ellen as she placed the baby boy in Sue Ellen's arms. Sue Ellen simply said, "Thank you". What did Sue Ellen do immediately after she had held her son - for only a few seconds - that caused other family members to worry?

Answer: Sue Ellen handed her baby to Mrs. Reeves without as much a sigh.

A long list of "red herring" would-be-kidnappers was presented. Was it Cliff? Was it Jeb and/or Willie Joe? Was it the "nurse" who no one seemed to know? Was it the caller who sent Jock and Ray on a wild goose chase? Or, was it Sue Ellen the entire time? Kudos to the "twist" that salvaged an otherwise rather boring episode.
