All the Pies of the Movie Waitress

In a diversion from the usual tech tips and news….

My wife and I were watching the movie Waitress and we decided to write down all the creative pie names and ingredients. I know everyone needs this information so here is the list 🙂

All the Pies of “Waitress”

Pie #1: Blue Plate Special I DON’T WANT EARL’S BABY PIE or BAD BABY PIE – Quiche with egg and brie cheese with a smoked ham center (later referred to as BAD BABY QUICHE PIE by old Joe)

Pie #2: KICK IN THE PANTS PIE – Cinnamon spice custard (Today’s Special)

Pie #3: I HATE MY HUSBAND PIE – “You make it with bittersweet chocolate and don’t sweeten it. You make it into a pudding and drown it in caramel …”

Pie #4: SPAGHETTI PIE – has at home with husband

Pie #5: MARSHMELLOW MERMAID PIE – From when she was in her mermaid stage. Pie made for Dr. Mueller, and given later in the appointment to Dr. Pomatter. “Biblically good!”


Pie #7: BABY SCREAMING IT’S HEAD OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND RUINING MY LIFE PIE – New York-style cheesecake, brandy brushed and topped with pecans and nutmeg

Pie #8: PEACHY KEEN TARTS – made for Dr. Pomatter

Pie #9: EARL MURDERS ME BECAUSE I’M HAVING AN AFFAIR PIE – “You smash blackberries and raspberries into a chocolate crust.”

Pie #10: I CAN’T HAVE NO AFFAIR BECAUSE IT’S WRONG AND I DON’T WANT EARL TO KILL ME PIE – “Vanilla custard with banana. Hold the banana …”

Pie #11: SPANISH DANCER PIE WITH POTATO CRUST – Joe orders at the Diner

Pie #12: NAUGHTY PUMPKIN PIE – brought to appointment for Dr. Pomatter, but unexpectedly with Dr. Mueller. Dr. Pomatter unexpectedly out of town with wife

Pie #13: STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE OASIS PIE – After Joe orders this one and Jenna tells him that it’s just a pie: “Just a pie! It’s downright expert. A thing’a beauty … how each flavor opens itself, one by one, like a chapter in a book. First, the flavor of an exotic spice hits ya … Just a hint of it … and then you get flooded with chocolate, dark and bittersweet like an old love affair …” – Joe

Pie #14: PREGNANT MISERABLE SELF PITYING LOSER PIE – “Lumpy oatmeal with fruitcake mashed in. Flambéed of course …”

Pie #15: LONELY CHICAGO PIE – Teaches Dr. Pomatter how to make this one

Pies #16 & #17: CAR RADIO PIE and JENNA’S FIRST KISS PIE – These are pies Jenna’s mom used to make that she fondly remembers.

Pie #18: OLD JOE’S HORNY PIE – Jenna states she is going to invent after a saucy story from Old Joe.

  1. I saw the movie about 100 times and love it. But they should of made a cookbook on the movie! It would of made millions!

    • Lorena… you’ll be happy to hear (if you haven’t already) that the movie has since been made into a Broadway musical… and there’s a cookbook! You can buy it in the theater lobby, and I think it’s available online and at Barnes & Noble as well.

  2. Thank you!! I know this took time.and im watching this movie for like the 100th time! I love all the cute names of the pies and Spanish dancer pie, yummm! ! Again thanks for your creative mind!

  3. Am reading a book called The Language of Flowers. It is about a young woman who learns and loves the meanings of all the flowers (has a very sad life). She sells flowers to patrons of a floral shop to elicit an effect on the recipients of the flowers which is desired by the purchasers. It reminded me of something and until I realized it was the pies in the movie The Waitress. I googled until I found your list of the pies. You were a lifesaver. Can’t bear not to remember where I had a similar feeling or experience. Yay yay you!,,,,

  6. […] February 2, 2010 · Leave a Comment In the movie Waitress, Keri Russell (a.k.a. Felicity) plays a pie genius/waitress who works in a pie diner and can only express her emotions through pie making: I Hate My Husband Pie, Falling in Love Chocolate Mousse Pie, or Old Joe’s Horny Pie. It is a wonderful little movie that leaves you feeling hopeful and hungry. One of my favorite parts of the movie was the “pie diner” concept. (For a link to all of the pies in the movie, click here.)
