Life Lessons from FRIED GREEN TOMATOES"



'nuff said.

Ruth: You're just a bee charmer, Idgie Threadgoode. That's what you are, a bee charmer.


Ruth: Don't you ever say never to me.


Miss Threadgoode: I found out what the secret to life is: friends. Best friends.


Miss Threadgoode: A heart can be broken, but it will keep beating just the same.


Sipsey: Oh it don't make no kind of sense. Big ol' ox like Grady won't sit next to a colored child. But he eats eggs- shoot right outta chicken's ass!


Evelyn: Towanda! Righter of Wrongs, Queen Beyond Compare!
Miss Threadgoode: How many of them hormones you takin', honey?



Grady
: Ruth, I have to say. I believe Idgie's been a bad influence on you.
Ruth: I agree!


Sipsey
: It's all right, honey. Let her go. Let her go. You know, Miss Ruth was a lady. And a lady always knows when to leave.


Ruth: Go on you ol' Bee Charmer, tell me a good tall tale.


Idgie: See, now is a time for courage. I guess you already know that there are angels masquerading as people walking around this planet and your mom was the bravest one of those.


Evelyn: I never get mad, Miss Threadgoode, never, the way I was raised, it was bad manners. Well I got mad, and it felt great. I felt like I could just beat the shit out of all those punks! Excuse my language. And then when I finish with those punks, I'll take on all the wife beaters like Frank Bennett, machine gun their genitals.
Miss Threadgoode: How many of them hormones you takin', honey?


Evelyn: ...and if you wont listen to reason, theres always...TOWANDA.



Buddy
: I TELL YOU ABOUT THE OYSTERS ?
Idgie:NO.
Buddy: THINK ABOUT THE MILLIONS OF OYSTERS LYIN' AROUND THE OCEAN. THEN ONE DAY...
GOD COMES ALONG AND SEES ONE AND HE SAYS, "I THINK 'M GONNA MAKE THAT ONE DIFFERENT." YOU KNOW WHAT HE DOES ?
HE PUTS A LITTLE PIECE OF SAND IN IT.GUESS WHAT IT CAN DOTHAT THE OTHERS CAN'T.
Idgie: WHAT ?
Buddy:IT CAN MAKE A BEAUTIFUL PEARL.
Idgie: WHAT IF GOD MADE A MISTAKE ?
Buddy: WELL THE WAY I FIGURE IT,HE NEVER MAKES MISTAKES. I MEAN, HE MADE SURE WE GOT TOGETHER.


Miss Threadgoode: YOU KNOW, A HEART CAN BE BROKEN, BUT IT STILL KEEPS A-BEATIN' JUST THE SAME.



Missy:
YOU KNOW, WHAT WE REALLY NEED INSTEAD OF THIS BALONEY...IS AN ASSERTIVENESS TRAINING CLASS FOR SOUTHERN WOMEN. BUT THAT'S A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS, ISN'T IT ?



Idgie:YOU GOTTA STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK.
Ruth:I KNOW.



RUTH:
I HAD A DREAM. THE OTHER NIGHT. I DREAMT THAT BUDDY WAS GONE. I RAN TO HIS CRIB
AND THERE HE WAS, SLEEPIN' LIKE AN ANGEL. YOU KNOW, I THANKED GOD...FOR LETTIN' ME
STILL HAVE BUDDY.
AND I REMEMBERED...HAVIN' THE SAME REACTION AFTER FRANK WOULD BEAT ME,
THANKIN' THE LORD FOR GIVIN' ME THE STRENGTH TO TAKE IT.
AND I REMEMBERED...THANKIN' THE LORD FOR EACH DAY MY MOTHER LIVED,
EVEN WHEN SHE WAS SPITTIN' UP BLOOD, AND PRAYIN' FOR ME TO KILL HER.
I LOOKED IN MY MOTHER'S EYES PLEADIN' FOR ME TO HELP HER...
AND ALL I COULD DO WAS PRAY.
WHILE YOU WERE GONE, AS I WAS HOLDIN' BUDDY, I THOUGHT IF THAT BASTARD, FRANK BENNETT...EVER TRIES TO TAKE MY CHILD, I WON'T PRAY....I'LL BREAK HIS NECK.



Ed;
MY GOD !ARE YOU TRYIN' TO KILL ME ?
EVELYN: Oh ED! IF I WAS GONNA KILL YA, I'D USE MY HANDS.


Miss Threadgoode:YOU COULDN'T BE SWEETER TO ME
IF YOU WAS MY OWN DAUGHTER.



Evelyn: I HATE DEATH. IT SCARES ME SO.
Miss Threadgood: DEATH IS NOTHIN' TO BE AFRAID OF ! LOOK AT ME. I'M AT
THE JUMPIN'-OFF PLACE...AND I AIN'T AFRAID ONE BIT.


Evelyn: DON'T YOU EVER SAY "NEVER" TO ME. (pause, angry) SOMEONE HELPED PUT A MIRROR UP IN FRONT OF MY FACE...AND I DIDN'T LIKE WHAT I SAW ONE BIT. YOU KNOW WHAT I DID ? I CHANGED.



Evelyn: AND IF YOU WON'T LISTEN TO REASON...THERE'S ALWAYS TOWANDA.



Miss Threadgoode: WELL, SOMEBODY SHOULDA TOLD ME. I'M OLD. I'M NOT A CHILD.



Evelyn: DON'T YOU KNOW YOU'D BE LIKE A GIFT FOR US ? YOU'RE THE REASON I GET UP EVERY MORNING...
