Quotes from Kathy Bates's Characters

    1. Evelyn Couch: 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 could just beat the shit out of all those punks! Excuse my language. And then when I finish with all those punks, I'll take on all the wife beaters like Frank Bennett, machine gun their genitals, (imitates machine gun) eh-he-he-he-he-he!
    2. Evelyn Couch: (laughs)
    3. Evelyn Couch: Towanda will go on a rampage, I'll slip some tiny bombs into Penthouse and Playboys so they explode when you open them. I'll ban all fashion models who weigh under one-hundred-thirty pounds! And I'll give half the military budget to the people over sixty five and declare wrinkles sexually desirable.

    1. Ninny Threadgoode: It's good to see that you're so happy, and you've slimmed down quite a bit these last few weeks.
    2. Evelyn Couch: I'm just so happy, Big George and Idgie got off. I would've killed Frank Bennett if I coulda. Did anybody really think that Idgie murdered him?
    3. Ninny Threadgoode: Some said yes, some said no. The only person who really knew the answer to that was Frank Bennett, and you know what they say, dead men tell no tales.
