Dr. Benjamin Stone is on his way to Hollywood to become a highly-paid plastic surgeon. He takes a wrong turn and crash lands in Grady, South Carolina, home of the famous Squash Festival. To pay off the debt of smashing up a fence, Dr. Stone does community service in the local hospital, finding the local yokels hard to bear.

I suspect that your version of romance is whatever will separate me from my panties.

No, I am just talking about dinner. Wear make-up, put on a dress. Panties are optional.

You want to trade; the pig for the part?

If you can part with the pig.
