(On the infamous "Who Shot J.R?" episode): "Before that fateful shot rang out, I was merely bemused by the success of the character. Villainy could be fun, and that`s how I played it. And if it worked. I mean I couldn`t go down to the corner to pick up my copy of the Sunday New York Times without running into some nubile creature with "J.R. for President" emblazoned across her chest. Now a higher, shriller note had been added. People who once merely wanted J.R.`s autograph demanded to know who shot him as if it were their birthright, and were angry and upset when I told them, truthfully, that I didn`t know."
