Favorite Quotes:

* Thelma: I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it. Pornography under my own roof.

* Thelma: “Tiffany loves animals but admits to being shy around people.” Well if that’s shy, I’d hate to see what friendly looks like.

* Thelma: Community Chest. Go to Jail!!
Bubba: Now maybe you know what it feels like.

* Iola: May I remind you that we are here to stop this store from selling pornography? This is war ladies.

* Thelma: Well I resent that. Are you saying we can’t stop people from shopping here just because we are three old ladies? You just stand aside Iola and watch this gray panther roar.

* Thelma: My dogs are barking, let’s call it a day.

* Iola: Come on troops, we’ve got to hang tough. They brought out the big guns.
Thelma: Yeah and I thought fighting with fish was against the Geneva Convention.

* DAR Lady: Think, our own Thelma Harper beamed all across the country.
Aunt Effie: Eh, Tom Brokaw must have been hurting for news that day.

* Vint: Mama, where’s the peanut butter?
Thelma: Well I don’t know. Maybe it got lonely and went over to visit the pork and beans.

* Thelma: Vinton, this boycott of Food Circus has been difficult on all of us. We have all had to make our sacrifices. Now if I can do without my Big Top Beer you can do without your seeds.


Synopsis:

Naomi has found the monopoly game. She wants to play tonight. Thelma comes running downstairs, she’s found a Casanova magazine. Naomi asks where she found it. It was under Bubba’s mattress. In the kitchen, Thelma opens the magazine in the kitchen and reads a little. Bubba comes in and Thelma yells at him. She grounds him for a week. That night they all play monopoly. Vint is actually winning. Bubba freaks out about being grounded. Turns out Bubba bought the magazine at the Food Circus from Naomi. Iola slams Naomi with a stellar insult. She and Naomi get into a fight. Iola suggests a boycott. Thelma decides it’s a great idea. Everyone stops playing the game but Vint who was winning. Thelma, Aunt Effie and Iola are at the Food Circus with picket signs. When they start whining about the heat, Iola reminds them they are at war. She then stops a man outside to question him about what the store sells. But Iola is not happy when he decides to buy a magazine. A member of the Daughters of Raytown arrives. The rest of them are at the garden club. The woman wants to go buy tuna and Iola loses her patience. Thelma jumps into action. Naomi comes out to make them leave. Thelma and the ladies start to chant and walk in circles. As the day goes on, their energy starts to run low. As they decide to end for the day, Naomi comes out with a sale sign. They start their marching again. The DAR woman breaks ranks and runs in the store. The heat gets worse. Effie is marching because she drank a half a gallon of tea. She gives in and runs for the rest room. Vint comes to check on them. Naomi comes out with a new sign, triple coupons for the afternoon. Iola breaks rank, she has coupons for coffee and kitty litter. A news woman and cameraman join them. Thelma gets interviewed. Naomi interrupts the interview. Then Vint gets put in the middle. He doesn’t answer the question but instead gives a hello to Bubba. Thelma grabs the microphone to give a big speech. Then Thelma evicts Noami and Vint as Iola and Effie come running back out and start circling Naomi with their signs. The house has turned into an office for MOP (Mothers Opposing Pornography). Vint bugs her about peanut butter. Vint yells again. In the kitchen, he informs her she bought the wrong jelly. He wants his favorite brand, but it’s only carried at Food Circus. They argue. Bubba runs in the kitchen. He’s excited his grounding is over. He’s off to see a horror movie. Iola runs in the kitchen, a movie producer is on the phone. Jackie Mann wants to make a movie about MOP. Naomi comes home. She is authorized to negotiate with the boycotters. Thelma tries to play hardball. She finally listens. The magazines will be covered, except for the title and kept behind the check stand. The phone rings again. It’s Jackie Mann again. They start to discuss who would play Thelma.
