Driving Miss Daisy quotes

Alabama trooper #1: (watching Daisy and Hoke leave after checking them out) An old ni**** and an old Jew woman takin' off down the road together... that is one sorry sight!

Boolie Werthan: (Boolie is eating lunch at Daisy's, trying to convince her that she can't drive anymore after her accident) Mama.
Daisy Werthan: No.
Boolie Werthan: Mama!
Daisy Werthan: No!
Boolie Werthan: You know, it's a miracle you're not laying up at Emory Hospital. Or decked out at the funeral parlor!
Daisy Werthan: The cucumbers are pretty this year.
Boolie Werthan: Look at you, you didn't even break your glasses!

Hoke Colburn: (Hoke and Idella are walking to Daisy's house and notice Boolie's car in the driveway) Now what do you suppose he's doin' here this early in the mornin'?
Idella: Dunno... can't be good, I promise you that!

Idella: I wouldn't be in your shoes if the Sweet Lord Jesus come down and asked me himself.

Daisy Werthan: (Hoke and Daisy are driving to Boolie and Florene's for a Christmas party. Daisy, a Jew, is annoyed at the extraneous Christmas light displays) Everybody's wishing the Georgia Power Company a Merry Christmas.
Hoke Colburn: I bet Miss Florene got 'em all beat with the new house.
Daisy Werthan: If I had a nose like Florene's, I wouldn't go around wishing anybody a Merry Christmas!
Hoke Colburn: (laughs) Yes'm... but, I tell ya, I do enjoy a Christmas at their house.
Daisy Werthan: Of course, you're the only Christian in the place!
Hoke Colburn: Well, they got that new cook.
Daisy Werthan: (sighs) Florene never could keep help. Of course, it's none of my affair. Too much running around, if you ask me. (Hoke agrees)
Daisy Werthan: The Garden Club this, the Junior League that... as if any of them would give her the time of day! But, she'd die before she'd fix a glass of iced tea for the Temple Sisterhood! I just hope she doesn't get it into her head to *sing* this year!
Hoke Colburn: (coming up on Boolie's house, looking at the gaudy light display) Oh, Lord, look what Miss Florene done done!
Daisy Werthan: If her grandfather, Old Man Freitag, could see this... what is it you always say?... he'd jump up out of his grave and sn**** her bald-headed!
Hoke Colburn: (bursts out laughing as he lets Daisy out) HA! Jump up outta his grave and sn**** her bald-headed! Miss Daisy, you oughta go on away from here!

Daisy Werthan: What are you doing?
Hoke Colburn: I'm tryin' to drive you to the store!

Daisy Werthan: (on the phone, trying to get a ride to her hair appointment) Well, I need you now, I have to be at the beauty parlor in half an hour... no, I most certainly did NOT know you have to call a minimum of three hours ahead! I don't know why you call yourselves a taxicab company if you can't provide taxicabs!
Idella: (in the other room, polishing a table) Why don't you call your son down at the mill? He'll send somebody for you.
Daisy Werthan: That won't be necessary... I'll just cancel the appointment and fix my own hair!
Idella: Sometimes I think you ain't got the sense God gave a lemon!
