Funniest *little known* line?



Is there a line in this film that perhaps was said quietly, or just really tickled your funny bone?

For some reason, I always laugh good when Truvy is talking about Annelle:
"...and she had a chance to go to Mardi Gras with me, and two other sinners.."



"I'd say this cloud is Cumulo Nimbus."
"Didn't he discover America?"
"Penfold, shush."

reply

Ouiser - "You are evil and you must be destroyed."

Makes me lol every time!

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

I always wandered what she said.
Somehow I always thought she said ."Well Annelle had a choice of going to her bible class or to New Orleans with me and 2 other centers - I got confused thinking Truvy was a volunteer for a senior center LOL.



"So, a thought crossed your mind? Must have been a long and lonely journey"

these two would be two of my favorites..
Aww, thanks Ouiser. Nothin' like a good piece of ass.

Looks like two pigs fightin' under a blanket.


Don't judge me.... If you don't know me....

As the women listen, Annelle tearfully confesses that she's married to Bunky DuPuy and he's in trouble with the law; she didn't want to tell Truvy because she needed a job. As Truvy reassures Annelle, Shelby says this:

"We are awful. We are all hateful, awful people. Here all we've been talking about is weddings and psychotic animals."

The look Ouiser gives her is priceless.

I always smile when Quiser and Clairee are grocery shopping for Drum. Quiser says she is a horrible person for making a comment about her health in front of Shelby and Clairee says to her, "No you're not, you'd give your dog a kidney if he needed one." One of those rare moments when the special friendship between the showed, even though they spent the whole movie insulting each other. The cemetery scene is my fav!

reply

I love it when Quiser says "I don't watch movies because they're trash! And they got nothing but naked people in them!"

I am so full of anticipation that my genitals have sucked up into my body cavity.

reply

I have three:

Truvy: Maybe she's praying because the elastic is shot in her pantyhose.

Drum: If I don't get those birds out of the tree by Shelby's reception I'll have to deal with my wife and I make it a point never to deal with my wife.

Clairee: They always say, if you can't say anything nice about anybody, come sit by me.

reply

I don't know if this counts but I LOVE IT when Owen says to Ouiser, "You look terrific, you haven't changed at all!" and without missing a beat she says, "I'm not as sweet as I used to be."

Mwahaha, the look on Julia's face is priceless!!!

And then I also love it when Ouiser is dragging her poor dog around and says, "This is it. I've found it. I am in hell." I quote it all the time, but then I quote a lot of the things Ouiser says!!!!

"It wouldn't harelip you". Until I saw this movie, I had not heard that expression since the late 1950's, when my old great aunt used to say it.

reply

Ouiser: I am at the end of my rope!
Drum: Well, tie a noose in it and slip it over your head.

reply

Oh, my...I think my family thinks I'm crazy because I quote this movie out of the blue.

Here are a few:.
"Get off my bench!"
"Have your roots done."
"My colors are blush and bashful." "Your colors are pink and pink."
"You are evil and you must be destroyed." (I say this to my cat a lot.)
"Looks like 2 pigs...fighting under a blanket."
"Boys, bring me my gun!"
"...It is a brown football helmet."

-Dad, who's that?
-Oh, that? One of my patients. He's...sick.
-Will he live?
-It's looking grim.

reply

All of these are great :)

Here is one of my fav's:
Truvy: Oh, Sammy's so confused he don't know whether to scratch his watch or wind his butt.

"Do you mean now?" ~Yogi Berra, when asked for the time.

reply

Besides what everyone else said

Clairee: it looks like two pigs flirting on a blanket.





Truvy: I should of known Louie had problems when his imaginary playmates would not play with him.
