Southern Movie Meme

Here's a fun meme I stole from Lynne's Little Corner of the World.


The Rules!

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies. (I picked 10 of my favorite Southern movies.) 2. Go to IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and find a quote from each movie. 3. Post them here for everyone to guess (if you know them all, please don't guess every one).
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie. 5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. (That would be cheating, and no fun!)

Remember, all these movies are set in the South!

1. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
Maree, you know your southern movies! A+++ Gone with the Wind

2. They call me MISTER Tibbs!
Too easy huh, Jmnlman!?! Good Job! In The Heat of the Night

3. Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.
This one is fun to try to mimic during mud-bug time, Debi! Ya done good! Forrest Gump

4. Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness, and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a knife, and our lives.
I think you know Boo, Tammy! Gold Star! To Kill a Mockingbird

5. Careful Maggie, your claws are showing.
I'm sure the set sizzled, Eva! Head of the Class! Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

6. He's got a real pretty mouth on him, don't he?
It creeps me out when my dentist tells me this, Diane! Well done! Deliverance

7. Looks like two pigs fightin' under a blanket.
And, I thought this one would be hard, Jill! Five Smilies! Steel Magnolias

8. Secret's in the sauce.
I get a kick out of this line, Sprite. W2G! Fried Green Tomatoes

9. Coffee makes me nervous when I drink it. Mmm.
Yes, Tammy! This was a hard one! Slingblade

10. Oh yeah, yeah I know my ABC's pretty good, just can't read.
TwisterB came a little late to the party, but it still is open! Driving Miss Daisy

Note: The photo above is King Vidor (1894-1982) who was a successful movie director of silent and talkies. In 1935 he directed a black and white southern movie titled So Red the Rose. The movie was based on a book (1934) with the same name by Como MS, native, Stark Young. They both achieved great success until another book (1936) and movie (1939) titled Gone with the Wind achieved even more.
