Plot Summary

When Pete's plane crashes in the swamp, he's rescued by young Tammy, an unsophisticated backwoods girl who lives with her lay-preacher-cum-moonshiner grandfather. When Pete's well, he goes back home to his fiancée. But then Grampa gets sent to jail and he sends Tammy to stay with Pete. At Pete's house, Tammy's home cooking, enthusiasm and quaint sunshiny personality bring about changes in Pete's family and in Pete himself. Written by Kathy Li

Quotes Tambey 'Tammy' Tyree: [reciting to party guests] I come from Virginie, Sir / I've been walkin' all the way alongside the wagon, ox-drawn / I've been sleepin' on the ground by night and walkin' all the day / I've come to this great house to sell fresh eggs I'm totin'em in my bonnet.
Peter Brent: Oh, why don't you come in. We have need of eggs.
Tambey 'Tammy' Tyree: It will pleasure me, Sir, for sure.
Party Guest: That's a lovely gown that you're wearing.
Tambey 'Tammy' Tyree: It was made in Virginie / My mammy sewed it for me with a needle and fine thread. / She made it strong for lastin' because it was a far piece to come.
Party Guest: I like to hear about that.
