Driving Miss Daisy Scene 21
Advertisement - Guide continues below
- It's 1966, and Boolie has been chosen Man of the Year by the Atlanta Business Council.
- On the way to taking Miss Daisy to the temple, the car's stuck in traffic, and there's a huge rainstorm.
- Hoke returns to the car after talking to a policeman, and he tells Miss Daisy she won't make it to Temple that morning.
- Someone bombed it. (This really happened, except in 1958.)
- Hoke isn't sure if anyone is hurt. The policeman didn't tell him.
- Hoke drives Miss Daisy home. She's upset in the backseat.
- He shares a story with her—the time his childhood friend's daddy was found hanging in a tree.
- "Flies was all over him," and Hoke threw up.
- Hoke says it's probably the same kind of folks who bombed the Temple.
- Miss Daisy cries. She wonders why Hoke told her that story.
- She says the temple bombing has nothing to do with Hoke's story.
- She's in denial. She thinks Hoke got it wrong, and that no one bombed the temple. If only she could check Twitter to verify.
