oops! i see a hole
i was hoping you'd catch that
it's a little poofier than i would normally do, but i'm nervous
i'm not real concerned about that. when i go to bed i wrap my entire head with toliet tissue so it usually gets a little smushed down anyway in that process
in my class at the trade school, i was number one when it came to frosting and streaking. i did my own
so, you're hired
and not a moment too soon! this morning we're going to be as busy as a one-armed paper hanger
thank you, Mrs. Truvy! thank you
no time. now. you know where the coffee stuff is. everything else is on a tray next to the stove
here. let me help you. you've got little tiny hairs and fuzzies all over you
be a treasure. annelle? this is the most successful shop in town. wanna know why?
feel free to use as much hairspray as you want. just shove that stuff to one side, it goes right there. manicure station here...
there's no such thing as natural beauty...
remember that, or we're all out of job. just look at me, annelle. it takes some effort to look like this
i can see that. how many ladies do we have this morning? (sweep)
how long have you been here in town?
a few weeks...
new in town! it must be exciting being in a new place. i wouldn't know. i've lived here all my life
it's a little scary
i can imagine. well...tell me things about yourself
there's nothing to tell. i live here. i've got a job now. that's it. could i borrow a few of these back issues of Southern Hair?
you must live close by. within walking distance, i mean. i didn't see a car
my car's...i dont have a car. i've been staying across the river at Robeline's Boarding House
i have to tell you, when it comes to suffering, she's right up there with Elizabeth Taylor
i had no idea. was that a gunshot?
yes, dear. i believe it is. plug in the hotplate, please
but why is someone firing a gun in a nice neighborhood like this?
clairee, this is annelle. she's taking judy's place
pleased to meet you
i have the pom-poms to prove it. what is your name, dear?
oh. my married name's Dupuy
i don't think i know any Dupuys
i just moved here. i'm originally from Zwolle
annelle? how did you make this coffee?
like you said. i poured hot water through the thing
where'd you get the water?
it was boiling on the stove
did you notice the hot dogs in the bottom of the pot?
make some more, please
i'm so sorry
hi! i'm shelby eatenton...soon to be latcherie
hi. i'm Annelle. i'm new.
are you married, annelle?
oh. i hope that coffee's better
it smells right
nothing a handful of prescription drugs couldn't take care of
i'll take this for you
her coiffure card is right on top
oh. piece of cake
keep your head in the sink, please
i'm sorry. i'm so sorry
annelle? i know you're new and all, but don't let that stop you. anytime you have anything to say, you just let 'er rip
i don't have anything to say
do you think you could roll up mrs. eatenton, annelle?
i don't know. today is very special. and my work tends to be too poofy when i'm nervous. does your dress have to go over your head?
very nice annelle. i think you know what you're doing
thank you. mrs. eatenton, you have great hair. and your scalp's clean as a whistle
it's not any wonder. with all this wedding nonsense and running around
excuse me. should i call the doctor or something?
there. she's making some sense. this one wasn't bad at all. but i think we should have a little more juice
can i do something? should i...
do you realize we are being rude to poor annette?
annelle. she doesn't know us from adam's house cat and we just keep talking about things foreign to her experiences. annelle, tell us about yourself
there's nothing to tell
where do you live?
on the corner of Jefferson and Second
the one where you can't see the house for the weeds
you must live in mrs. robeline's house
she's my landlady
are you getting along with her?
what's the matter with her?
nothing...nothing. are you happy there?
she scares me. she's always watching me. sometimes i catch her looking through my keyhole.
i had been waiting all morning for my chance. he finally put it down to go to the bathroom
i'd like to ask a question. i'm new here and all. is my life in danger?
(cleaning sink, looking out window) what if he comes over here and tries to get his gun back?
drum would never set foot in a beauty shop. this is women's territory. he probably thinks we all run around naked or something
there's somebody coming! a strange lady with a strange dog!
that would be ouiser
that is one ugly dog. what kind of dog is that?
you must be the new girl
darling...whatever your name is...would you look out the window and check on my dog while i smack clariee on her smart mouth? you may not believe this, but these are the dearest friends i have in this town
his color's good. his skin is real pink
what is your name? did you tell me?
fine. are you new in town? i know everyone. i don't recall ever seeing you before
i just moved to town not too long ago
with your family?
no'm. i don't have any family to speak of
with your husband?
uh...my husband? that's hard to say...i...uh...i don't know
you don't know?
i'm not sure
i'm intrigued. are you married or not? these are not difficult questions
uh...we're not...he's not...i can't talk about it
of course you can
i'm not sure if i'm married or not...he's gone!
honey. men are the most horrible creatures
everything is horrible. Bunkie...that's my husband. he left. we only moved here a month ago. he just vanished last week
no idea where he went?
nobody knows. he took all the money, my jewelry, the car. most of my clothes were in the trunk
there might have been foul play. have you been to the police?
no...but they've been to me. he's in big trouble with the law. drugs or something. he never paid the rent so i got thrown out of our house and had to move in at crazy old Mrs. Robeline's the police keep questioning me. but i don't know anything. they say my marriage may not be legal...
you should've said something
i was scared to. i need a job in the worst way and i didn't know if you'd hire someone who may or may not be married to someone who might be a dangerous criminal. but i swear to you that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair
of course it won't...
i really don't think things could get any worse
you must be made of courage
i'm totally alone. checks are bouncing everywhere. everything is going wrong. i keep asking myself...why me?
it's going to be a great party
oh, i couldn't. i still get real emotional sometimes...
and if you feel yourself start getting sad, just watch my husband dance. it's very funny
you're all so nice
we enjoy being nice to each other. there's not much else to do in this town
but i don't have anything to wear...
give me a day to straighten it up and sweep out the bed, then come look at it. i'm sure we can work out some arrangement with the rent
looks like drum has set his trees on fire or he's just elected a new pope
i guess it worked. all the birds are leaving
this is all she wrote. i am going to let that man have it
oh no! your dog broke his chain! and he's heading toward the smoke!
it's all annelle's idea. she has quite an eye for the unusual
annelle, you did all this?
guilty. Truvy just turned over the decoration responsibility to me. i like themes. and i despise the comersialization of Christmas, always have. so i went to the fire sale at the Baptist Book Store in Shreveport last month. they had mismatched manger scenes at incredibly low prices. i cleaned them out of Baby Jesuses, which Truvy's husband helped me modify into ornaments. very simple. tiny white lights, Baby Jesuses, and spoolies
the chair. uh. excuse me, shelby? uh. if you don't have any special plans for the clothes...could i have them? Riverview Baptist has a clothes closet for the poor. we're real low on women's dresses
it breaks my heart that she won't come to the Methodist church with me. i think riverview baptist is a little too..."praise the Lord" for my taste
some of them do get a little carried away. but there's nothing wrong with that
she's had a few rough months, haven't you, honey?
oh. after they finally threw Bunkie Dupuy behind bars and i was rid of him, i went wild. i was drinking, running around, smoking...
but Truvy helped me see the error of my ways. i've realized i have something to offer. i joined a truth last month. Truvy's helped me see i have talents. i've done guest lectures on beauty at the trade school...
our little annelle has become one of the hottest tickets in town
Truvy. stop. i am enjoying the city more. and i am so excited about the Christmas festival today. i've wanted to come to it all my life. and now i live here!
tell her who you have a date with
Truvy, will you hush?
tell her, missy. shelby is pretty much totally responsible for the whole thing!
how am i responsible?
he was bartending at your wedding reception last spring. that's when i met him. he makes a mean cherry coke
we didn't get back into town until one o'clock. it was a dazzling victory over dry prong
i heard you on the radio last night. you were wonderful
my hair looks younger. my face looks just as old
there is so much going on! the state championship last night, the Christmas festival today, the Messiah sing-along tomorrow...
i like it
Miss Ouiser. i think you need a healthy dose of Christmas spirit
i have so much Christmas spirit i could scream
you made them, didn't you?
with my own two hands
well, annelle? what do you want me to do with these old clothes? i need to get them out of the back seat
just bring 'em in
please. i haven't even washed the dishes from thanksgiving
what did you get your mama?
diabetics have healthy babies all the time
it will all be fine
what is that girl up to?
Shelby's donating some clothes to the poor
just dump 'em on the couch
Miss M'Lynn, you sure you don't mind me taking them? if your patients need them...
