Quotes from Hattie McDaniel's Characters

    1. Mammy: You know what trouble I's talkin' 'bout. I's talking 'bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He'll be comin' to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you sittin' there waitin' for him, just like a spider. He belongs to Miss Melanie...
    2. Rhett Butler: How fickle is woman.
    3. Rhett Butler: With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.
    4. Rhett Butler: I'm very drunk and I intend on getting still drunker before this evening's over.
    5. Scarlett O'Hara: Great balls of fire. Don't bother me anymore, and don't call me sugar.
    6. Gerald O'Hara: It will come to you, this love of the land. There's no gettin' away from it if you're Irish.
    7. Rhett Butler: No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
