but leave some softness around your ears.
did you bring truvy the picture of Jaclyn Smith
like Princess Grace
but I thought I had made you understand the advantages of the Jaclyn Smith hairdo
I destroyed the picture of Jaclyn Smith
well at least I talk to her out of that stupid idea of sticking babies breath all in her hair
that's all right. I found cold water refreshing. it startled me a little that's all.
i'm so sorry
drum and I feel that shelby should not work anymore until after she gets married
that's so sad
you should not be on your feet all day you should be kinder to your circulatory system
i'm so anxious to discuss this topic for the 900th time this week
I must've missed the passage and Emily post that said all abuse is to be heaped on the mother of the bride. go ahead annelle I'm sure you'll do beautiful job it doesn't matter what I look like anyway
you just tease it and make it look like a blonde football helmet
shelby there was no way around it and you know it

The poet laureate of Dogwood Lane

The sanctuary looks like it's been hosed down with Pepto-Bismol

people are going to be hacking to this poor animal that looks like it's bleeding to death
they serve steak and baked potatoes they went to a lot of trouble
It was at jackson's uncles place on the river

That one hit her quick
perhaps that explains why I have so much gray hair but you known shelby as long as I have you know I have to let her be strong she doesn't seem to be down too deep
What if this happened when she was driving in a car
she's been so upset lately she and jackson have been going round and round Dr. McLeod told her the last appointment the children are not possible it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to sit there and watch a child's heartbreak
That's good enough
there she's making some sense this one wasn't bad at all but I think we should have a little more juice
Don't talk about me like I'm not here
no she'll be fine in a minute she probably won't remember anything don't fuss over her normality is very important to shelby
Can I do something should I
I know she feels the Jackson I get thrown away and his chance for children they discussed it and he seems to of taken it all right. shelby's the one pushing the issue he's crazy about her and
i'm sorry to hear about the children part m'lynn
shelby honey it's tommy
it's tommy. for shelby
shelby about what jackson said
i hear it's like living in a blow dryer

There's a lot of sick tickets in this town

There's nothing to tell
On the corner of Jefferson and second
you must live in mrs. robeline's house
the corner where you can't see the house for the weeds
are you getting along with her
she's my landlady
nothing...nothing. are you happy there
what's the matter with her
oh. dear me. uh, don't worry. she's probably not taking her medication. i'll check on her monday. shelby would you like to finish up that juice
sometimes i catch her looking through my keyhole
why don't you drink it. it's going to be a while before the bridesmaid's luncheon
you finish it
a lot. but a small town radio station can be a license to print money if it's run right
i wonder how much radio stations sell for
shelby why don't you finish off that juice
lyodd took care of all of that stuff
shelby'll be fine now. anyway i always carry some mints in my bag

you always carry candy in your bag
clairee. put that back.
do you suck on this often
i had been waiting all morning for my chance. he finally put it down to go to the bathroom.
how did you get daddy's gun away from him
you see, our backyard is full of fruit trees
the trees around here are full of em this time of year
the neighboorhood is fit to be ttied. ouiser boudreaux blames my husband's gunshits for the problemsof that mangy dog of hers. she insists all the noise has made that stupid animal lose it's hair.
i didn't want the guests at my reception to spend all night doging bird do
taking the gun was a stroke of genius m'lynn
drum would never set foot in a beauty shop. this is women's territory. he probably thinks we all run around naked or something.
what if he tries to come over here and get his gun back
i'm sorry... this whole thing has gotten out of hand ouiser
i have been screaming this morning
ouiser. the judge has not decided whose tree that is exactly
i go down to my magnolia tree and there is not a bloom on it
they're blanks. and drum would never aim a gun at a lady
is that rude or what
that's uncalled for
i'll bet he takes the dishes outta the sink before he pees in it
what in the hell
i hope nobody was hurt
shut up rhett
oh no that dog will eat drum alive. and drum is unarmmed
and he's headed towards the smoke
shelby! i thought you weren't coming to town until after lunch.
mama where is everybody
what a treat
we wanted to drop in on jackson's parents on the way down here
you must not have visited long
on saturdays they leave the house at the crack of dawn to start hunting little furry creatures
she and annelle are out back sticking pennies in the fuse box. they decorated a little tree and when i plugged it in all the lights blew
red plastic poinsetta earrings. they are a gift from annelle. she has discovered the wonderful world of arts and crafts
what are those things
yes. jonathan got home yesterday morning. he lives his classes. it's all he can talk about. i think the main thing architecture school has taught him is how much he should hate his parent's house. tommy arrived last night and immediately started terrorizing your father. it's nice haveing the family home for christmas.
are tommy and jonathan home yet
and how are you honey
some things never change.
you're looking well. is jackson at the house
i'm good mama. just greta.
i sent him to look for stocking stuffers.
i realize that
i'm going to have a baby
i... what do you expect me to say
is that all your going to say
something along the lines of congratulations
i'm in a state of shock. i didn't think
i wouldn't want you to break a sweat or anything
what does jackson have to say about this
jackson loves to hunt for anything
but does he ever listen. i mean when doctors and specialists give you advice. i know you never listen, but does he. i guess since he doesn't have to carry the baby it doesn't really concern him
jackson latcherie junior
i'm not mad shelby. this is just... hard. i thought that... i don't know
but what about the adoption proceedings. you have filed so many applications
mama i want a child
people do it all the time
jackson even put out feelers about buying one
has he really. there's a first time for everything.
i think it would help things a lot
shelby your poor body has been through so much. why do you diliberately want to
don't start on jackson
you are soecial. there are limits to what you can do.
diabetics have healthy babies all the time.
least of all jackson, i'm sure.
no one is gonna be hurt or disappointed or inconvenienced
i did not raise my daughter to talk to me this way
you're ready to spit nails because you can't call the shots
shelby i'm not in the mood for games
what did you say
i said all i wanted was for you to be happy.
i wish i..z i don't know what i wish
i wish you could be happy too
i never tell anyone anything. they're on truvy
i want to tell daddy first
that doesn't sound like finger food to me
i bought some white chocolate cherry cheesecake for our open house
fine. i'm sure you know what's best
that's not necessarily true
they don't have a care in the world.
that's all i'm saying
i just don't approve when you insist on doing dangerous things
mama didn't approve of my twirling fire batons
i have never hated anything shelby. i supported you but i couldn't watch you. your father on the other hand had a feild day. he got so much pleasure out of standing in the backyard for hours watching you practice, holding the garden hose so he can put you out when you caught on fire.
mana hated fire batons
but we were proud of her.
it was my theme song
if this is really the way you feel ouiser it isn't healthy. maybe you should think about coming down and talking to someone at the guidence center. we're there to help.
do i detect negativity in your tone
the doctor said shelby shouldn't have children. there's a big difference. i guess you showed us all shelby
i guess you showed them
shelby, shelby. her heart does get the best of her. i don't know if that's a bad quality or not.
i'm not sure i can be gracious under pressure
she wants this so badly. i just don't know.
that's not exactly great news, is it.
diabetics have healthy babies all the time
thank you ladies. you're right. we'll make it through just fine. you know what they say. that which does not kill us makes us stronger.
of course it will
no no. shelby said you could have em. and what she says goes.
if your patients need them
shelby you always insist on having the last word.
that's not true mama
