Idgie and Ruth talk about what is fair and legal as they steal into the open box car before their food-tossing spree. When Ruth protests that they can't throw away food that isn't theirs to the homeless Idgie responds "That's church talk."

Later, when they have a food fight in the kitchen Ruth calls Idgie's fried green tomatoes terrible. Idgie playfully tosses water on her and says she thought Ruth needed to cool off.

OR, to put it more succinctly, the whole movie is one woman telling another woman a story about two other women. Passes with flying colors!
