I - as fancy as some of the cars on the show were, none had side-view mirrors near as exotic as the 1978 line of Isuzus


(rumor had it an intrigued Andy Bradley test-drove an elegant Florian on at least one occasion and was impressed, though not enough to endure the ridicule of owning a Japanese car in the Texas oil community of the time)

K - Don't think you'd see any Ewings or other cartel members driving that 'K' car that Iacocca pushed to get Chrysler back on its feet. Tho' I'm sure it was on most streets of Dallas at the time...

L - similarly, you wouldn't see a sodium-restricted Jock Ewing putting 'K-Salt' on Teresa's eggs, even to prevent them from allegedly tasting like library paste




(I thought 'K-Salt' was a name for (or different brand of) the 'Nu-Salt' and 'NoSalt' shown below, but I'm not seeing it on google... ah well!)

N - As the dinner conversation went that evening in JULIE'S RETURN:

Ellie: No salt, Jock. You know what the doctor said.
Jock: This food's got No taste, Miss Ellie.
Ellie: Jock, don't be difficult.

Q - stymied by Cliff's aggressive blockade on Ewing Oil production as head of the powerful OLM, JR considered drilling off the shore of Qatar before settling on Southeast Asia

T - I can't see Lucy and Muriel Tooling around in a Gran Torino...wouldn't quite hold the image when pulling into daVinci's. It's a car to take to Billy Bob's in Fort Worth.

W - After learning he could not fool Will Riker into his being Riker's son, Jean-Luc grew up, flew into a time warp, and resurfaced centuries earlier as Bobby's adopted son Christopher as JR returned.

Z - I can't help but speculate that Garnet McGee must have somehow been behind this cosmic zig-zagging


(Garnet seen here singing at prestigious Dallas music venue the Mustang Club and later confronting a Leslie Stewart-haired version of herself years later in space)
