Bobby confronts J.R. who tells him that he found out that Cliff Barnes was going to take Southfork and he had no choice but to take it from under him. Bobby is furious and wants to carry on his mother’s legacy, while J.R. says that he is going to carry on his daddy’s legacy and plant more oil wells.
