The greatest two minutes twenty-seven seconds of television history, courtesy of Ms Julia Sugarbaker, played by the glorious Dixie Virginia Carter who died last Saturday.
A guy pal of mine knows he’s had Too Much when he can’t recite “A Boy Named Sue” in its entirety in under two minutes. Another friend does the salient parts of The Wife of Bath in Middle English. Me? It’s this scene, which is always good for applause and at least one free drink at pretty much any self-respecting gay bar in the developed world.
They just don’t write parts like that for women anymore. Sigh. We’ll miss you, Dixie.
