The Spitfire Grill (1996)
Nahum Goddard: Where do you come from, Percy?
Nahum Goddard: Ohio, huh. I had some clients from Ohio once. Didn't sound like you do.
Percy: Well I wouldn't mind coming from someplace else, if that doesn't suit you.
Shelby Goddard: The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Or somewhere in that vicinity.
Nahum Goddard: Who do you supposed is gonna keep an eye on her?
Sheriff Walsh: Well, if she's working at the Spitfire, I'd guess everyone.
Hannah Ferguson: Until I forget my name or start drooling at the mouth, I'll thank you to let me make my own decisions.
Percy: Most folks would rather hear a colorful lie over the truth any day.
Shelby Goddard: [as bags of mail for the essay contest are deposited in the diner] Holy Moses.
Percy: Holy Mackerel.
Hannah Ferguson: Holy Shit!
Clare: I just gotta find someplace to give my boy a chance, Mrs. Ferguson. That's all he really needs, just a chance. And from reading what you all wrote, well, I got to wishing maybe your town would be that place.
Joe Sperling: You sound like you're from the South.
Percy Talbot: Things ain't always what they sound.
