Black Market Baby is the fifth episode of Season 2 of the CBS-TV series Dallas, also the tenth overall series episode. Written by Darlene Craviatto and directed by Lawrence Dobkin, the episode originally aired on CBS-TV on October 15, 1978.
Money can't buy love, but it can perhaps obtain a baby for Sue Ellen Ewing. Eager to provide an heir, she secretly agrees to purchase the child of an unmarried mother-to-be.
After over seven years of futility of becoming a mother, Sue Ellen decides to attempt adoption behind JR's back. After finding a young woman who's willing to give up her baby, Sue Ellen unexpectedly bonds with the young lady. Bobby is not too thrilled at the prospect of his wife, Pamela, turning down the idea of a baby while contemplating the idea of returning to the work force.
