At 1:12:20 into it, Willowdean is walking quickly to the building for the pageant opening. Millie yells to her "You're LATE". Willowdean replies "Well I told Lee I needed my wardrobe by noon and he said 'I'm a designer sugarplum, not a magician'". This indicates it's past noon. But about 45 seconds later, when Willowdean's mom walks on stage, she says "Hello, good morning girls". It's no longer morning when it's past noon. See more
Callie is doing the pageant this year. Will's mom is the pageant director. She was Miss Teen Bluebonnet in 1991.
Rosie Dickson's your mom? Really?
Far as I know.
Hey, maybe sometime Elle Belle and I could come over and I could ask your mom some questions about the pageant. You know, just casually.
Well, unfortunately, my mom's not home all that much. She's either at pageant meetings or at the nursing home wiping old peoples' butts. It's what happens to a lot of ex-beauty queens.
