The truth might hurt a little, but it won't hurt near as bad as the blistering I'll give your backside if you lie.
Dr. Burdette takes no nonsense from anyone and that includes her only son, Bubba. She’s warm-hearted, but stubborn and willing to be stern when it’s called for. Don’t start no trouble, won’t be no trouble. Highly intelligent, she’s the chief of surgery and raised her son up right. God help anyone who ever hurts her boy, ’cause she won’t rest until she makes you pay.
One of her favorite things to says is: “My boy ain’t always been right in the head. But that’s okay ’cause no matter how nuts he is, he’s always right in the heart… God love him. And so do I.”
