Lewellen: I saw Elvis!
Buddy: Did not.
Lewellen: Did! And he blew me a kiss!
Buddy: You're a liar.
Lewellen: Am not!
Lewellen: Am not, you stupid!
Buddy: Well, can you meet me on the bank?
Lewellen: No, I can't. I gotta finish this for Grammie.
Buddy: Just for a little?
Lewellen: No, I can't. I gotta do this.
Elvis Presley's appearance singing "Houndog" on the Milton Berle Show took place on June 5, 1956. Several of the vehicles used in the movie were newer than this. The pink Desoto (or Dodge) was probably a 1956, but it's not likely that a rural Alabama woman would be driving a new car. The tow truck used to tow the Desoto was a 1957 at the oldest, and it was quite beat up. The red Pontiac at the Elvis concert was a 1959.
