    • The character of Dr. Mary is reminiscent of Dr. Shirlee, Dolly Parton's character in the 1992 film Straight Talk. She too used homespun wisdom and humor to charm her listeners and references to (in the case of Dr. Shirlee) what her "Daddy used to say". Like Dr. Mary, she was not really a doctor, but she was referred to as Dr. Shirlee, and her listeners believed her to be one.
