I was talking about meeting some fabulously kooky women at THE LADY & SONS restaurant when I ate there a few years ago and then I wrote...
As Julia Sugarbaker said on an episode of DESIGNING WOMEN, "In the South, we don't ask if you have crazy people in your family, we ask which side their on!"
A short while later "Lance's Friend" lovingly corrected me with this comment...
I think the Julia Sugarbaker quote is "In the south, we don't hide our crazy people in back bedrooms, we bring them out and show them off to everybody."
But "Lance's Friend" and I were quickly provided with the actual quote from the uber-hip and super-smart Aaron when he wrote...
Actually, I think she said both:
JULIA: "Here in the South, we don't hide our crazy people in the attic, we bring 'em right on down to the front room and show 'em off. You see, Phyllis, nobody in the South ever asks IF you have crazy people in your family. They just ask WHICH SIDE they're on."
Phyllis: "Oh? And which side are YOURS on, Ms. Sugarbaker?"
JULIA (without missing a beat): Both.
As you can see from this clip, Aaron was right on the money!
I can't tell you how happy and thrilled I am to find "my people" - - those beautiful souls who live and love DESIGNING WOMEN and all things Sugarbaker!
