And with Season 2 on the horizon, it’s high time you hop to watching (or rewatching) this binge-worthy, feel-good dramedy.

Take a look through some of their most memorable quotes from season one of Sweet Magnolias. We bet you’ll be positively itching to sit down and pour it out with this quick-tongued, loyal trio who we’re hoping against all hope have an opening for a fourth partner in crime.
