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 and answer only ONE!

1. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
Gone with the Wind Raymond starts us off and no #6 is NOT A Few Good Men! ;D

2. They call me MISTER Tibbs!
In the Heat of the Night Great job, Crystal!

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. Forrest Gump What are you having for dinner tonight, Raymond?

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.
To Kill a Mockingbird Yay, Amanda!

5. Careful Maggie, your claws are showing. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Awright, Dawn!

6. He's got a real pretty mouth on him, don't he? Deliverance The last one, Susie!

7. Looks like two pigs fightin' under a blanket.
Steel Magnolias W2G, Beach Bound Babe!

8. Secret's in the sauce. Fried Green Tomatoes Thanks Susie!

9. Coffee makes me nervous when I drink it. Mmm.
Sling Blade. Way to go JoEllen through Sam Weakley!

10. Oh yeah, yeah I know my ABC's pretty good, just can't read.
Driving Miss Daisy. Great job JoEllen!

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.
