J.R.: If you really are my mother and you didn't die, where the hell you been?

Dixie: J.R., I wanted to --

J.R.: It's not like she hadn't played dead and dumped us before. I'm just saying the last time she came back from the dead was when her sister was pretending to be her. I found my mom down at the casino bar sipping on martinis. Yeah. That's how I found out my dear, departed mother was alive and avoiding me.

Dixie: I am so sorry.

J.R.: I'm good. I really am. Maybe we should get together, actually, have some martinis. Because if you are her, then you could explain if you love us so damn much, where the hell you been?!

Dixie: I'm sorry, J.R. I don't remember.

J.R.: Oh, you don't -- perfect answer. Exactly: She doesn't remember. She's a fake.

Tad: She's been through hell.

J.R.: Aw. Haven't we all?

Tad: You're gonna treat her with respect.

Dixie: It's ok. It's all right. He's angry, and he's upset, and he has every right to be.

J.R.: Empathy. Well played.

Dixie: I have missed so much of your life, of your son's life.

J.R.: You have no idea what you've missed.

Dixie: Then tell me.

J.R.: No, I think I'll pass.

Dixie: J.R., I know you've had a difficult time. I can see that.

J.R.: Can you smell it? Yeah, that's my scotch rising up through my pores.

Dixie: You've been in jail, and you're drinking, and I want to know why. I want to know everything. You needed me and I wasn't here for you, and I am so, so sorry for that. But I am here. I am here now. Please, please give me another chance.

J.R.: You want to know what you missed? You want the highlights or the not highlights? Babe died. Uncle Stuart died -- hell, I almost died.

Dixie: God. What happened?

J.R.: Cancer.

Dixie: God.

Tad: Yeah, yeah.

J.R.: I was almost there. I got to that tunnel, the light at the end of the tunnel where my mom was, where she grieved me -- that's my real mom, the mom who's dead. She said that I had so much to live for, so I came back. And there's been so much for me to come back to.

Dixie: There is, J.R. There is so much!

J.R.: Marissa and me -- that's Babe's sister -- she helped me through the cancer, but she left me for someone -- a woman. Yeah. Tell me that's a reason to live right there.

Dixie: What about your son?

J.R.: Marissa's trying to keep him from me, slapped me with a restraining order. I can't see him, my own kid.

Dixie: I'm so sorry.

J.R.: But the funny thing is -- really funny to me -- is I would do anything to see him. And my father? He left town. He never looked back. He doesn't even return my phone calls.

Dixie: If I had been here, I would've done something.

J.R.: No, it's all right. Being sober sucked. So I figure it's my time to crawl right back inside that bottle, because you know what? That's me. I know it. It works for me.

Tad: It's not working.

J.R.: You know what's not working -- is this mommy/son reunion you put together! I might be a drunk, but I'm certainly not stupid. You stay out of my life, stop trying to help, because a fake mommy isn't gonna change that.

Dixie: J.R --

Tad: No. Let him go.
