Designing Women Thursday: When Julia’s head got stuck and Suzanne told off a high-strung “usherette” scene from season four is a hoot because it’s got Suzanne Sugarbaker (Delta Burke) at her best.

Usually it’s her sister Julia (Dixie Carter) who is telling people off but this time, Julia’s head is stuck in the banister at the Governor’s Mansion (she was clowning around before a reception) and the governor’s aide is having a hissy fit over it.

It’s just too much for Suzanne who says to the frantic woman: “Who do you think you’re talking to? For your information, we are the Sugarbaker sisters of Atlanta. We had people living here long before it burned. Our great-great grandfather was Robert E. Lee’s roommate in college. Our other great grandfather helped write the Georgia constitution. I myself have stood in the Rose Garden with Jimmy Carter! So even if we do, on this particular day, happen to have our head temporarily stuck in a fence, we are not going to take any CRAP from some two-bit, low-level bureaucratic usherette!”

    There’s no woman like a Southern woman when it comes to giving someone grief!

  2. This is absolutely my favourite DW episode. It’s great to see Suzanne stand up her sister, the same way Julia previously stood up for Suzanne in her famous “Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” speech. I love the part a bit later where Suzanne comments on how Julia’s stockings were too dark for her dress, and Julia responds, “Why THAT could be embarassing! I can just hear people now: ‘Do you see that woman with her head caught in the staircase? The one the Governor just stepped over? Don’t you think her pantyhose are too dark for her dress?’” LOL
