I loved The Help (both the book and the film). Mum and I were both delighted by this exchange between Aibileen and Mae Mobly in the film:

There’s a bird living in the trees in our backyard and its call has the same tone and inflection as “you is kiiiiind”. I often thought about the similarity and smiled.

The other day mum came out and said, “I keep meaning to say to you – have you heard that bird? I kept wondering why I was thinking about The Help all the time and realised it was because that’s exactly what that bird sounds like!”

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who heard it. And it’s a lovely phrase to be reminded of every day.
