The Rumble Up North

I know that gambling is wrong.  However, when I saw my two contestants for Quince Quote this month, part of me was tempted to mail the prize to a neutral location up in Lebanon, Oregon, and take bets on which of the contestants would make it to the location first.  But, since MiMi and Myya are two of my favorite people, and I wouldn't actually want to do anything that would come between their real life friendship, I let Random.org do my dirty work. 
But first, let's go over the answers...shall we?

THE MOVIE: 


CHARACTER WHO SPOKE THE QUOTE:  Ouiser Boudreaux

ACTRESS WHO PLAYED CHARACTER:  Shirley Maclaine

LINE DELIVERED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE QUOTE:  "Oh Ouiser.  Drum would never point a gun at a lady!"

Both of the ladies did an awesome job of naming some of my favorite quotes, and both succeeded in making me laugh, so MiMi got one additional entry, and Myya got 2 additional entries.  Other quotes that could have made me laugh could have included...

"Not on your first visit!"-spoken by Annelle
"I'd rather eat dirt"-Spoken by Sammy
"M'Lynn, you just missed the chance of a lifetime! Half o' Chiquapin Parish'd give their eye teeth to take a whack at Ouiser!"-spoken by Clairee

The list could go on and on.  I LOVE THIS MOVIE!  But I'll stop there. 
When all was said and done, with the extra entries, there were 11 total.  According to Random.org, number 4 was the winner, with means that Myya wins!  Congrats girl!  Email me your address, so I can get this out to you by next week  Thanks for playing guys!

Girl! You should have sent it to Lebanon! I would have won, cuz she doesn't live in my town, nah na nah na nah nah.

thats what I get for taking a few mental health days. I was totally gonna enter and find the funniest quote from the movie.

Myya can thank me because the only reason she won was because I didn't enter. :o)

I'm a weener, I'm a weener... I'm soooo cited!!! I hardly ever win stuff so this is sooo cool... especially since I lvoe this movie & I don't own it!!! Thanks for not mailing it to Lebanon... I live about 20 minutes from Mimi & she would totally not even tell me when it arrived to duke it out fair. Oh & I guess I am supposed to thank CJ too... I think she is lucky she didn't enter cuz I would've smoked her & she would be upset at losing to such a cool person ha ha ha ha. I'll e-mail ya my info. THANKS AGAIN!!! :)
(Gosh my comment is almost like a never ending thank you speech written for the Oscars or something... I'm lame I know!)

One of my favorite movies too! I know every single line & recite them along with the movie when I watch it.

My aunt & uncle lived in the little town in Lousiana where it was made during the filming. They had nothing but nice things to say about most of the cast.. It's rumored that Ms. Fields is quite the diva.
