Oooooooooooh good list! I'd forgotten about the 30 minutes of wonderful quote from "Steel Magnolias". I just loved that movie! Also loved Driving Miss Daisy and others on your list! I have It's A wonderful Life on mine too, different quotes.

Yayy!!! Another BG resident! You're the first one I've come across.

Anyway, "Steel Magnolias" is a wonderful movie. My favorite quote you have up there is...

Those are great movies!

Steel Magnolias is my favorite movie of all time. I quote it all the time, not even knowing that I am doing it. Strange, I know.

You missed my favorite Steel Magnolia quote - "He's a real southern gentleman, he takes the dishes out of the sink before he pees in it."
