Quotes

Florence Jean 'Flo' Castleberry: Well, Cleo Burford runs the music store so I just bought him a few beers and unbuttoned the old top button and making a couple of promises that I have no intention to keeping. I've got to have the piano back by the time the store closes.

Setting the stage for an enduring comedy series
20 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This pilot episode introduces the beloved and sometimes quirky characters - Alice, Flo, Mel and Vera. Vera provided the slapstick, Flo the edginess, Mel as the lovable lug played the counterpoint to Alice, and Alice held it all together with her sincerity and general optimism. Aside from setting the stage for the long run of this series, the episode is pretty blah. In part, this is due to the character Tommy, Alice's son. The kid couldn't act worth beans and was fortunately replaced in succeeding episodes. The show does introduce Flo's iconic expression "Eat my grits." I loved that expression, and at the time, it seemed very edgy and colorful.
