I wanna know *why* Shelby's life is over! I wanna know how that baby will *ever* know how wonderful his mother was! Will he *ever* know what she went through for him! Oh *God* I wanna know *why*? *Why*? Lord, I wish I could understand!

    [in a firm tone]

    M'Lynn: No! No! No! It's not supposed to happen this way! I'm supposed to go first. I've always been ready to go first! I-I don't think I can take this! I-I don't think I can take this!

    Clairee: M'Lynn, you just missed the chance of a lifetime! Half o' Chiquapin Parish'd give their eye teeth to take a whack at Ouiser!

  • Clairee Belcher: You know, you would be a much more contented, pleasant person if you would find ways to occupy your time.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: I'm pleasant. Damn it! I saw Drum Eatenton this morning at the Piggly Wiggly, and I smiled at the son of a bitch 'fore I couldn't help myself.

  • Drum: Ouiser you look like hammered shit.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: Don't you talk to me like that!

    Drum: Oh,I'm sorry you look like regular shit.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: Yes, Annelle, I pray! Well, I do! There, I said it, I hope you're satisfied.

    Annelle: I suspected this all along!

    Ouiser Boudreaux: 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 doin' God-only-knows-what! They'd probably make me eat a live chicken!

    Annelle: Not on your first visit!

    Clairee Belcher: Very good, Annelle! Spoken like a true smart-ass!

  • Annelle: We are in the house of the Lord!

    Clairee Belcher: Oh like she cares. Ousier's never done a religious thing in her life.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: 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-hoppin'.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: I am just about at the end of my rope with you.

    Drum: Well, then why don't you tie a noose and slip it 'round your head?

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: You know you would be a much more contended pleasant person if you would find ways to occupy your time.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: I am pleasant! Dammit! I just saw Drum Eatenton this mornin at the Piggly Wiggly and I smiled at the son of a bitch for I couldn't help myself!

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: I do not see plays, because I can nap at home for free. And I don't see movies 'cause they're trash, and they got nothin' but naked people in 'em! And I don't read books, 'cause if they're any good, they're gonna make 'em into a miniseries.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: Drum, eat shit and die.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: Annelle, take your Bible and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

  • M'Lynn: Oh Ouiser, Drum would NEVER point a gun at a lady!

    Ouiser Boudreaux: Oh! He's a real gentleman! I bet he takes the dishes out of the sink before he PEES in it!

  • Clairee Belcher: [trying to do "color commentary" by discussing the color of the football uniforms] ... But I love the top - such a vibrant purple. Bob, would you call this color "grape" or "aubergine'?

    Ouiser Boudreaux: SHUT UP!

    Clairee Belcher: What?

    Ouiser Boudreaux: You're makin' a fool outta yourself, Clairee.

    Clairee Belcher: I am not.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: This is football. All the people wanna hear about are touchdowns and injuries. They don't give a damn 'bout that grape shit.

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: [after knocking Clairee off the bench and pulling some of her hair] Get your roots done!

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: Clairee, this is just a gesture. We're not feedin' Drum until the end of time.

    Clairee Belcher: Drum loves pork and beans. Eats 'em with everything.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: That explains a lot.

  • Tommy Eatenton: [at same time as his brother] Hello Miz Ouiser

    Jonathan Eatenton: Hello Miz Ouiser.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: [Makes a face] Ugh! Leave me alone!

  • Ouiser Boudreaux: My God, you look different. Have you shrunk?

  • Clairee Belcher: The older you get, the sillier you get.

    Ouiser Boudreaux: Yeah, well the older you get, the uglier you get.
