GodlessAibileen: (to Hilly) "You're a Godless woman."BUY @ amazon
Aibileen's anger is never more apparent than when she utters this line to Hilly. Her devastation is understandable (for those who haven't read the book or seen the movie, we'll skip telling you why).

Done It NowAibileen: "We've gone done it now."BUY @ amazon
Yes Aibileen, you have. With the help of your fellow maids, and Skeeter, you've put your story out for everyone to read - including the residents of Jackson. Brave, and dangerous.

I Got a Job TodaySkeeter: "I got a job today."BUY @ amazon
Skeeter: "Writing for the Jackson Journal."
Charlotte: "Great, you can write my obituary - Charlotte Phelan dead, her daughter, still single."
All Charlotte (Allison Janney) wants for her daughter is marriage - not a career. She makes this abundantly clear throughout the film, starting as soon as Skeeter graduates from Ole Miss. This is the last thing on Skeeter's mind...

ScandalousMissus Walters: "You should read the book, it's quite scandalous - sounds like Jackson if you ask me."BUY @ amazon
Missus Walters (Sissy Spacek) is spot on. Skeeter did change a few things in her book - but it's pretty obvious who she's writing about. Hilly isn't going to be happy...
