Here's a lesson from the real John Ross about how stuff works:
I'm pretty sure J.R. said the same thing to John Ross a few episodes ago, obviously the writers hocking from this scene.
Likely, but my thinking is Young John Ross hasn't quite figured it out yet, hence his continued stupidity.
What does that have to do with the point I was making? You posted the scene from the original show with the implication that J.R. needed to teach his son the lesson Jock was relaying to Bobby... except J.R. already did do that, like three episodes ago.

And John Ross isn't stupid because he's not smart the way his father is; if anything it's because the writers are writing him that way.
