Quotes from the Movie Fried Green Tomatoes

Did I ever tell you about the oysters?

Buddy

I didn't tell you bout the oysters? Think about all the millions of oysters lying around on the bottom of the ocean. Then one day, God comes along and he says, "I think I'm gonna make that one different." and you know what he does? he puts a little piece of sand in it. and guess what it can do that the others can't.

Buddy

Well, the way I figure it, he never makes mistakes. I mean, he made sure we got together. He made sure you got the best-looking most charming brother in the world!

Buddy

What if God made a mistake?

Idgie

If you ever touch her again, I'll kill you!

Idgie

God damn it to hell, son of a bitch, she did it! Here's to Ruth.

Idgie

He won't even sit in the same room and have a meal today.

Idgie

I can't believe he swore on the bible.

Idgie

Well, that was just a lie.

Idgie

Uh, one time... there was this lake... And it was right outside of town. We used to go fishing and swimming and canoein' in it. And, uh, see, one November, this big flock of ducks came in.. and landed on that lake. And then the temperature dropped so fast that the lake just froze right there. And they... er... the ducks... they... flew off, you see, and they took that lake right with them. Now they say that lake is somewhere over in Georgia. Can you imagine that?

Idgie

It's okay, honey. Let her go...let her go. You know, Ruth was a lady, and a lady always knows when to leave.

Sipsey

It like to have killed us all. But nary a one took it as hard as Idgie. Everyone thought she'd die right along with him. Night after night, she stayed by the river. Big George was the only soul she'd let near her, and he watched over her night and day. You know, a heart can be broken, but it still keeps a-beating just the same.

Ninny

Now,I'm afraid I can't help you with that one.

Ninny

How many of them hormones are you taking, honey?

Ninny

Oh, it don't make no kind of sense. A big old ox like Grady won't sit next to a coloured child, but he eats eggs... shoots right out of a chicken's ass.
