“Miss M’Lynn, I don’t mean to upset you by saying’ that. It’s just that when something like this happens, I pray very hard to make heads or tails of it. And I think that in Shelby’s case, she just wanted to take care of that little baby, and of you, of everybody she knew. And her poor little body was just worn out. It just wouldn’t let her do all the things she wanted to. So, she went on to a place where she could be a guardian angel. She will always be young; she will always be beautiful. And I personally feel much safer knowing’ that she’s up there on my side [M’Lynn turns to face Annelle] It may sound really simple and stupid and… Well maybe I am, but that’s how I get through things like this.” – Drum

“I have suspected this all along!” – Drum

“Oh, what are you doing? Are you eating my picture? [Ouiser and Clairee approach Drum, who’s talking to Sammy].” – Drum

“Then, let’s cook something’ else.” – Sammy

“Well, then, we’ll make red beans and rice.” – Sammy

“Oh, I’d rather eat dirt!” – Sammy

“I’ve never been so uncomfortable in all my life!!” – Sammy

“Jesus!!” – Sammy

“What bushes?! I can’t see shit!!” – Sammy

“Over there!!” I’m an adult, ya know!! I’m not a 5-year-old!!” – Sammy

“Oh! Well don’t you expect me to come to one of your churches or one of those tent-revivals with all those Bible-beaters doing’ God-only-knows-what! They’d probably make me eat a live chicken!” – Ouiser

“I’m pleasant. Damn it! I saw Drum Eatenton at the Piggly Wiggly this morning, and I smiled at the son of a bitch ‘fore I could help myself.” – Ouiser

“Drum, eat shit and die.” – Ouiser

“You are evil, and you must be destroyed.” – Ouiser

“Annelle, take your Bible and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.” – Ouiser

“Clairee, this is just a gesture. We’re not feeding’ Drum until the end of time.” – Ouiser

“Well, that explains a lot.” – Ouiser

“Now that is not true. When I was in school, a bunch of my friends and I would dress up as nuns and go bar-hopping’.” – Ouiser

“This is it; I have found it; I am in Hell!!” – Ouiser

“That is PRECISELY why I’m here! I’ve gotta talk to M’Lynn about her husband. He is a boil on the butt of humanity!” – Ouiser

“Back at Truvy’s. I said I’d be better off when my body wears out. I shouldn’t have said that in front of Shelby. And I didn’t mean that.” – Ouiser

“But I feel bad, Clairee. I’m a terrible person.” – Ouiser

“Yes. [looking shocked at how much pork and beans Clairee is putting in their cart] Clairee, this is just a gesture. We’re not feeding’ Drum till the end of time.” – Ouiser

“That explains a lot. [she puts some back; cut to Annelle and Sammy’s house, they’re getting out of Sammy’s truck].” – Ouiser

“The flowers were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen!” – Ouiser

“Are you high, Clairee?!” – Ouiser
