    • The Truth: E6 is a pure disgrace to The Gentlemen's Club. Anyone that can wear a condon on the head does not deserve to be here, by any means.

    • Mr. Bentley: Who are we kidding? Pretty Ricky's got to go. He's lucky he made it this far... I could've saved some alcohol.

    • Frederick: Good afternoon, gentlemen. Shaun: Good afternoon. Frederick: Welcome to the Gentlemen's Club. My name is Frederick and I'll be assisting you for most of your stay, though from the looks of things I doubt that'll be very long for many of you.

    • Mr. Bentley: Tell me a little bit about yourself, brother. Shotta: Um, I don't have a job. I'm homeless. Mr. Bentley: You are not homeless, homeless. Shotta: I live in my car, basically. Mr. Bentley: You just live in your car? Shotta: Yeah... I got a Mercedes!

    • Creepa: I see Frederick coming in with a little paper. I don't read no ******* newspapers, man. You know what I'm sayin'?

    • Kesan: I think Mikey P is the kid that goes to the Projects to hang out and then when the lights come on, he runs back to his mansion.

    • J-Boogie: Mr. Bentley, he has to understand that I'm way better dressed than he is. I got way more style. I probably get way more girls.

    • Cee: (about someone putting an 'X' on his picture) Not only that is disrespectful, but that's defacing my face.

    Notes (41)

    • When Frederick first comes out to receive the G's, his name is displayed as FREDRICK. In the end credits however, his name is listed as C. Frederick Secrease. (Note the extra 'e' between 'Fred' and 'rick'.) Until we get a definitive answer from a verifiable source, this guide will use the spelling from the show's end credits, as it's consistent across all episodes.

    • The Truth and Pretty Ricky were eliminated.

    • Episode Guests Marcellus Reynolds: Celebrity Stylist Oswalt Boateng

    • Geoffrey When Frederick first comes out to receive the G's, one of them mumbles "Hey Geoffrey." Geoffrey was the butler in the sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

    • Episode Title The title of this episode is a play on sports broadcaster Dan Cook's proverb: "The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings", which means one shouldn't assume the outcome of a game until it has actually finished. In this case, the expression is used to describe the outcome of T-Jones' singing during dinner.

    • Survivor Mr. Bentley mentions "This ain't no Survivor" when he hears about potential alliances. Survivor is a reality series where contestants are stranded in remote locations and split into two or more teams, named tribes. Alliances between tribe members are a frequently used strategy to stay in the game and vote out other contestants.

    • Waldo When Lank's friend arrives, Mito says 'We found Waldo!' Waldo is a character from a children's book series entitled Where Is Waldo? by Martin Handford. In the book, readers are asked to find Waldo in overcrowded pictures. To Mito, Lank's friend looks like the character from the book.

  • This is a show about a group of young, unpolished and disadvantaged men battling it out to become the first member of the G's to Gents Gentlemen's Club with the Grand Prize of $100,000.

  • A group of Gangsters all competeting for 100k and the knowledge of how to be a gentleman. This show is very educational, and quite humorous at times. Because they can get kicked out during every episode, it leaves you at the edge of your seat.
