Production details[]

  • Deleted scenes: The Carringtons arrive at the palace with 4 limos; Sammy Jo explains to Rita that she is furious against Krystle and she will show her how; Krystle and Blake discuss the differences between Amanda and Sammy Jo; Yuri presents himself to Blake and Krystle; Steven blames Adam for making Claudia miserable; Claudia confides to Krystle that she believes any of the Carringtons care about her. [some of these scenes may not have been filmed - especially the first one]
  • Trimmed scene : Before Blake talks to Adam, he and Krystle remember the day when Fallon disappeared.
  • Unfilmed scene : Michael makes a first attempt to explain the situation with Elena to Blake but Blake has not time for this.
  • Filming Locations: Warner Hollywood studios; Harold Lloyd's Greenacres Estate (Beverly Hills).


  • Nolan Miller spent $150,000 for the costumes of this episode, especially Amanda's $10,000 wedding dress (heavy Italian silk satin with hand embroidered ivory and white flowers and pearls).
  • While Amanda's glittery diamond tiary was especially created to accent her veil, the glorious five-strand pearl necklace was a film prop used by Claudette Colbert in the 1930s.


  • Alexis Carrington Colby [to Amanda]: As my beloved mother used to say, ''Rain is good for the farmers". ln this world, darling, you make your own happiness.
