1. “Jack…that’s a bourbon, right?”

2. “I really commend Iron Man 3 with its spot-on depiction of Chattanooga.”

3. “Meh. The state could be redder.”

4. “He ended the argument with ‘I’ll pray for you,’ so everything’s probably fine.”

5. “Actually, I root for the Denver Broncos solely because they’re an all-around fantastic team.”

6. “If we time it right, we can get to Cracker Barrel right as the church crowd does.”

7. “What’s a Sundrop?”

8. “Do you have unsweetened iced tea?”

9. “The Bell Witch doesn’t exist.”

10. “Is this vegetarian?”

11. “I just said ‘yeah’ to an 85-year-old man. The look on his face was priceless!”

12. “…But with no available options, where am I supposed to go to church?”

13. “I just love the look on out-of-towners’ faces when they find out I’m actually not a rhinestone-wearing racist who valiantly bleeds red, white, and blue.”

14. “Man, living in a dry county is so badass.”

15. “Ugh, there’s literally nothing to do outside.”

16. “Dolly who?”

17. “Fried moonpie? Sounds like a disaster.”

18. “What’s sales tax?”

19. “Krystals or White Castle?”

20. “You know, orange really is such a beautiful color.”

21. “Wine sold at grocery stores? We don’t need it.”

22. “I mean, I know it’s Game Day and all, but people will still come to my party, right?”

23. “Atlanta is the birthplace of Coca-Cola. Definitely.”

24. “Well, if you’re looking for a low-key dive bar with no chance of hearing brutal renditions of ‘Don’t Stop Believing,’ I’d definitely stick with Honky Tonk Highway.”

25. “Besides Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus, what other musicians are from Tennessee?”

26. “Blueberry pie moonshine? From a mason jar? What do I look like to you? A 19th century Appalachian mountain man?”

27. “Could Nashville lay off with the whole free music thing for a while? We’re not a freakin’ charity case.”

28. “Too bad we don’t have a bigger barbecue festival to see how North Carolina and Texas do it right.”

33. “First Friday in August? Sounds like a good time to get some casual back-to-school shopping done.”

34. “I just don’t understand why Tennessee got so much shit for trying to make the consumption of flattened fauna legal. Isn’t the highway pretty much already a buffet?”

35. “Congrats on beating us for having the longest pedestrian bridge in the world, Poughkeepsie!”

36. “When you used that ‘you’re the only ten I see’ pickup line, I thought you were so funny and cute. Would you like to sleep with me?”

38. “My accent is pretty funny, isn’t it? I’m glad we can all laugh about it together!”
