Driving Miss Daisy Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • At Miss Daisy's home, she doesn't understand why Hoke and the cleaners are "carrying on." There will be no laughing in her house. She's a woman who can say "Piggly Wiggly" without cracking a smile.
  • Hoke drives Daisy to Temple. He waits outside and shines the car.
  • After Temple, she gets in the back seat and orders Hoke to hurry up out of there.
  • In the car, Hoke asks if Miss Daisy is upset at something he's done.
  • She was embarrassed that he parked right in front of the temple. He made her look like "a g.d. fool."
  • She doesn't want anything thinking she's showing off her wealth by having a chauffeur.
