Did you know they took my gallbladder out?
No, I didn't.
Oh, yes. Still in the hospital in a jar.
I guess that's where they keep 'em.
When I was in the hospital,
the nurse gave me one of them Fleet enemas they're so fond of.
Mrs. Cleo Threadgoode,
82 year old widow, imagine that.
Actually, everybody calls me Ninny.
'Course I'm just visitin' here.
Did you ever have one of them Fleet enemas?
You'd remember it.
Me and my friend, Mrs. Otis, come from Whistle Stop.
You ever been to Whistle Stop?
Why, yes. I just passed by there today.
She's lived down the street from me for 30 years or more.
After her son died,
her daughter-in-law had a fit for her to come live at the nursing home.
They asked me to come and be her roommate.
Mrs. Otis don't know it, but I'm going home just soon as she gets settled in good.
Does the name "Idgie Threadgoode" ring a bell?
Um, no, ma'am. I don't think so.
You'd remember her.
You see, I was practically adopted by the Threadgoode family.
I married her brother, Cleo. Oh, uh-huh.
Idgie and her friend, Ruth, ran the Whistle Stop Cafe.
Idgie was a character, all right.
But how anybody could've thought...
she murdered that man is beyond me.
I beg your pardon?
