Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
[to Hoke on his first day of work]
Idella: I wouldn't be in your shoes if the Sweet Lord Jesus come down and asked me himself.

Boolie Werthan: How're you, Idella?
Idella: Livin'.
Boolie Werthan: Where's that vacuum cleaner I brought over here?
Idella: In the closet.
Boolie Werthan: [turning to Hoke] She won't touch it.
Idella: I would if it didn't give me a shock every time I come near it!
Boolie Werthan: It works for me!
Idella: Fine... you clean and I'll go down and run your office!

Idella: I'm goin', Miss Daisy.
Daisy Werthan: [from upstairs] Alright Idella, see you tomorrow.
Hoke Colburn: I'm goin' too, Miss Daisy.
Daisy Werthan: Good!

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!

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!
