More classic Claree quotes:
When Anelle asked Claree what breed Ouiser's dog was, Claree said, "If it had hair, it'd be a St. Bernard."
"The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize."
Claree, about the Mayor's wife's accident: "She got hit with a baseball. It was fabulous."
Truvy: "Was she hurt?"
Claree: "I doubt it. She got hit in the head."
Claree, quoting the Marmoullian son's gaydar: "He said, 'All gay men have track lighting, and all gay men are named Mark, Rick or Steve.'"
RIP, Ms. Dukakis.
