If you haven't watched our new favorite Netflix series Sweet Magnolias yet, please grab your best girls, whip up a pitcher of margaritas, and silence your phones because it's time for a girls' night in. And with Season 2 recently added to Netflix and Season 3 on the horizon, it's high time you hop to watching (or rewatching) this binge-worthy, feel-good dramedy.

The series, based on the Sweet Magnolias book series by Sherryl Woods, centers on the Serenity magnolias, three best friends from a fictional small town in South Carolina who stand by each other through thick and thin—and always with a quip or heartfelt turn of phrase to suit. Take a look through some of their most memorable quotes from Season 1 and Season 2 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. Where do we sign up?
