* EarnYourHappyEnding: Minny suffers the brunt of Hilly's cruelty, having worked for her mother, and has a drunken brute for a husband. Her distaste for white people isn't helped when she's hired by Celia Foote, who seems to be a vapid DumbBlonde who wants to use Minny's cooking to impress her husband. Fortunately, Minny doesn't let her bitterness stop her from treating Celia with genuine care, and in the end, [[spoiler:she gets a job offer for a lifetime of working for two kind people that consider her not merely a friend, but an ''equal''.]]



** Mr. Johnny comes from OldMoney and lives in his family's really BigFancyHouse, but he's one of the most kind and openminded people in all of Jackson. Celia grew up as penniless "white trash" in Sugar Ditch, but hasn't let her new wealth turn her into a RichBitch, remaining friendly, modest and without one racist bone in her body.

* TheReveal: Minny gets two regarding Cecile. The first is [[spoiler:her husband is really nice and knows Minny is working for them, but just humors Cecile by pretending he doesn't know]]. The second is [[spoiler:the seemingly lazy and alcoholic Cecile is actually pregnant and drinking what she thinks is catch tonic to keep from getting another miscarriage]].

* AbusiveParents: Elizabeth Leefolt to her daughter, Mae Mobley. She's not even directly abusive, more just inattentive and incompetent, which is perhaps even worse.

* OneDialogueTwoConversations: In the movie, at the charity event, Hilly and Celia have this. Slightly drunk, Celia is just trying to [[SincerityMode congratulate]] Hilly for winning that chocolate pie at the auction. Hilly, believing Celia knows about the "Terrible Awful" and is mocking her, reacts viciously.

* BetaBitch: Elizabeth is Hilly's. There's little she does without Hilly's orders or example to follow. She went so far as to ''have her daughter'' just because Hilly had a kid, and both Elizabeth and Mae Mobley suffers from just how ill-equipped to be a parent Elizabeth is.

** Averted in the book, as it is mentioned in the book that Aibileen smokes. Also, although Charlotte smokes in the movie, in the novel it's mentioned that she quit smoking after she got her cancer diagnosis.
