Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
Esther Rolle: Idella
Boolie Werthan : How're you, Idella?
Idella : Livin'.
Boolie Werthan : Where's that vacuum cleaner I brought over here?
Idella : In the closet.
Boolie Werthan : [turning to Hoke] She won't touch it.
Idella : I would if it didn't give me a shock every time I come near it!
Boolie Werthan : It works for me!
Idella : Fine... you clean and I'll go down and run your office!
[to Hoke on his first day of work]
Idella : I wouldn't be in your shoes if the Sweet Lord Jesus come down and asked me himself.
Daisy Werthan : [on the phone, trying to get a ride to her hair appointment] Well, I need you now, I have to be at the beauty parlor in half an hour... no, I most certainly did NOT know you have to call a minimum of three hours ahead! I don't know why you call yourselves a taxicab company if you can't provide taxicabs!
Idella : [in the other room, polishing a table] Why don't you call your son down at the mill? He'll send somebody for you.
Daisy Werthan : That won't be necessary... I'll just cancel the appointment and fix my own hair!
Idella : Sometimes I think you ain't got the sense God gave a lemon!
