Quote #4

"Your coat smells like –" He leans down and sniffs it, grimacing. "Fertilizer." (9.93)

Stuart's initial pickup line doesn't impress Skeeter much.

Quote #5

[…] he kissed me so slowly with an open mouth and every single thing in my body – my skin, my collarbone, the hollow backs of my knees, everything inside me filled up with light. (13.27)

Looks like Skeeter's gotten over Stuart's fertilizer faux pas.

Quote #6

One thing I got to say about Miss Hilly, she love her children. […] That kind of love always make me want to cry. Even when it going to Miss Hilly. (14.29)

Hilly's sole redeeming quality seems to be her love for her children, as Aibileen observes. This is a marked contrast to Elizabeth's treatment of Mae Mobley.
