MIKE WILLIAMS : Are you gonna cook for us from now on. Miss Daisy?

MIKE WILLIAMS: Is she, Slim? Is she gonna stay?
SLIM SHERMAN: You’ve done so much for us already, ah, we don’t know how to thank you.
JESS HARPER: Would you consider stayin’ on, ma’am? I mean in a rundown place like this?
DAISY COOPER: Oh, it’s not so run down.
SLIM SHERMAN: We’d sure love to have you stay, Miss Daisy. We really would.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Will ya? Please?
DAISY COOPER: Well, after all those things I told the judge, maybe I’d better stay.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Yipee!
