    • (Julia calls Reese) Reese: Hello Julia: Hi. You busy? Reese: Not if it's you. What's going on, Sassy? Julia: Nothing much. I just called to tell you that in this very complicated world, where people lie, cheat, steal and can't find there way home at night, I'm very very glad to have you. Reese: Well, sounds like you had an interesting day. You want to tell me about it? Julia: No, I don't fell like talking. I sure would like to see you though. Reese: Shall I bring dinner? Julia: Mm-mm. I'm not hungry either. Let's just have pancakes for breakfast. Reese: I'm on my way. Julia: I'll be upstairs.

    • Suzanne: Julia are you kiddin'? If Reese Watson even thought of having a mistress, the very least you would do is blow up his car and burn his apartment to the ground.

    • Suzanne: Big, black beautiful buck. Hmph. I'm just gonna call the NAACP and turn her name in. I mean, that's a racial slur if I ever heard one. Mary Jo: And you oughta know.

    • (The mistress asks 'big, black, beautiful buck' Anthony if she can sculpt him) Julia: All right, that's it. Look, Ms. Langford. Gaby: Please, call me Gaby. Julia: No, I won't call you Gaby. You haven't taken the time to learn any of our names. Gaby: Well, that's not so. I know Anthony. Julia: That's right, you do. First you kept us waiting for 35 minutes. And then when you decided you were bored enough to come downstairs, the only thing you've acted the least bit interested in is seducing our delivery man. Gaby: Seducing? If that's what you think I was doing, then obviously you don't have the artistic sensibility required to work with me. Julia: No, Ms. Langford. What I don't have that's required to work with you is patience. Charlene: Julia Julia: Because quite frankly, I find you rude, horny, lazy and dumb.

    • Suzanne: Well I just can't believe she's keepin us waiting so long. I mean, I have better things to do with my time than sitting around waiting for some concubine to fall outta bed. I mean, I could be home watching Green Acres. Mary Jo: Suzanne -- Suzanne: WHAT? Mary Jo: I think it's time for you to suck on some more sugarless candy.
