-Check your machine.

Grace, wait!

God help me.

I can't believe it.

On to the business of our centennial

cookbook. We want it to be our best... I'll ask our committee chairman

to bring us up to date.


Deadline for recipe submissions

is the second.

Think about substituting

vegetable shortening wherever it says lard.

I say this because Nell McGee's husband

is recovering from heart surgery.

Lucy's going to take over for me

until after the Grand Prix.

That's it.



The committee thinks that....

Well, we've looked at a lot

of other cookbooks.

We've always been listed

with our married names under the recipes.

Frankly, the practice of excluding

our first names looks outdated.

So, I think we should list our names:

first, middle and last.

That's all.

I always thought the way it was

looked quaint.

It doesn't look quaint, Edna.

It looks antiquated.

What about tradition?

If my name isn't there

as Mrs. Franklin J. Caldwell Ill...

...then how the hell is anybody gonna know

who I am?

Barbaranelle Caldwell, who's that?

It could be his daughter.

-You wish.

-Shut up.

Ladies, this isn't something

that's going to be decided today.

If there's no further business,

this meeting is adjourned. Thank you.

I'm proud to use my husband's name.

The fact I'm still married to him

is one of my greatest accomplishments.

Your mother called. She wants to change

the menu for the Grand Prix party.

Why? Everyone loves it.

She wants shrimp. She says

she's sick to death of ham and barbecue.

They've been doing it that way

for 35 years. Why does it bother her now?

Bring her over to my house

and let me give her some lunch.


I'm taking her to Miller's to be fitted

for her riding habit. I promised.

Wonderful! Who you gonna ride?
