    • Maya: Remember Lynn was adopted by white people look at how she turned out. Darnell: (laughs) Don't let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch.

    • Lynn: A baby baby, like a human baby in spite of Jabari? Maya: You know what. Forget you Lynn!

    • Allison: We all are happy, have beautiful kids. And there's twenty-five thousand more in the LA county needing permanent homes. Darnell: Twenty-five thousand? Maya: Wow we would take every last one of them if we could.

    • (A white woman with a black baby comes to Maya's door) Allison: Hi. I'm Allison King. Maya: I don't know where you found that baby, but he's not mine, take him three doors down, she's got a group of kids. Allison: No. This is my son Aiden, we just moved in across the street. Maya: He's your son? Allison: Yeah. Maya: Oh. Okay I am not trying to stir up any trouble or anything, but I was neighborhood-watching, and I saw you tongue-kissing a tall white man in khakis who clearly, not Adiens daddy. Allison: Yes he is. That's my husband Scott. Aiden is adopted. Maya: Oh! I am so sorry. He is so adorable! Is he African? Allison: No. No, he was born here in LA. Maya: Oh, okay well you know I just figured it was one of those Madonna-Angelina situations. Allison: No we did not want to go overseas, not when there is so many adoptable kids here to adopt.
