    • Granddad: Don't you even dream about telling white folks the truth. Shoot! I'ma find me a white man and lie to him right now.

    • Grandad: Sorry Mr. Billy Blanks, but why buy the DVD when you can get the infomercial for free?

    • Riley: I know about white people, they speak (begins to speak slowly) the whooooole wooooord liiiike thiiiiis.

    • Uncle Ruckus: (to Granddad) Well Lordy dawdy doo. Looks like we got ourselves the winner for the luckiest nigga of the year award. (drinks liquor out of container, then wipes his mouth) They must think the sun shine out yo ass. Granddad: Mr. Wuncler's being very nice. Yes. Uncle Ruckus: They must think you Sydney fucking Poitier. Well I've been working for Mr. Wuncler for twenty years. And I never been invited to the party. Shoot. We won't let me use the front door. But you won't know about that, now would you, Mr. Tim? Oh yeah, they must think your shit smell like spring daisies and cinnamon.

    • Wuncler I: I'd like to ask some questions, if you don't mind. Are you gay? And if so, do you have a gay lover living with you in the house? Granddad: Gay?! Me?! No, I'm not gay. Now I happen to think a man looks nice. With good hair and a pony-tail. But no, uh-uh. I'm not gay.

    • Granddad: (to Wuncler III) Uh, so I understand you just got back from Iraq? Riley: For real? Yo, what's it like? Wuncler III: What's it like?! Now what do I say to that? It was cool, there was bitches. Okay they was bitches but a lot of them had, ya know, they was covered in them curtains and stuff they be wearing. But, I digress. It was war. It was war, basically. War, you know what that's like? Muddafuckers be like shooting (imitating a machine gun). Bombs blowing up. And ya know, the shit scared me. It scared the shit outta me. Matter o' fact, I shitted on myself, over a dozen times. And ran out of toilet paper after the second time. So you know what that meant, right? (slight pause) I had to use the thumb, man, it was kinda nasty. But ya know, the good thing about it was they stopped taking me out on patrol cause my name became "Stink Bomb", you know wha' I'm saying? They said I was giving away our position, because of the shit smell. That was fine with me, know wha' I'm saying? They wanted to leave me back? And I was like, (holding both middle fingers in the air) "Well fuck y'all. Y'all go ahead long, cause I don't need y'all anyway. I'm rich, bitch." (notices everyone is staring at him) The fuck y'all looking at?

    • Granddad: (to Huey and Riley) Who actually got hit with the firehoses ain't important. Now we're going to this party and your black asses are gonna behave. If I'm lucky, I'll find me a nice, white woman, with a flat booty, who would listen to all of my problems.

    • (Granddad is in the kitchen wearing nothing but a skimpy towel and realises a carton of orange juice in the fridge was empty) Granddad: What da hell? BOOOOYYYYS!!!! (echoes twice) Would one of y'all like to explain this? Riley: (sleepy) Uh, you mean the orange juice or the mini-skirt?

    Allusions (43)

    • Dubya: The character Ed Wuncler III portrayed as an all around screw up whose every outrageous and anti social action is excused and even applauded by his family's social circle is introduced in this episode as a parody of someone who's said to be going to be The President of The United States. In case the point needed to be underscored, he wears an enormous blinged out W pendant as part of his everyday wardrobe.

    • Malcolm X When Huey hears Mr. Wuncler's car pull up to their house, the pose he takes as he stands off to the side with his gun held up as his other hand parts the curtain blinds to peer out the window, is an homage to a classic pose assumed by the 1960's black militant leader, Malcolm X.

    • Riley: Say hello to my Lil Friend! This was the same line said by Al Pacino during the gun fight in Scarface.

    • Title: "Guess Hoe's Coming to Dinner" The title of this episode is a pun on an old movie, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

    • Enter The Dragon: Huey: What was that, an exhibition? You need emotional content. Bruce Lee's character says the same thing to a student who is practicing kicking.

    • Huey's Dream Huey's dream was making a reference to an episode of Samurai Champloo, in which Jin fights a man in exactly the same way Huey did in his dream.

    • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Granddad: I won't fail you – I'm not afraid! Huey: Oh, you will be. You will be. Luke says the same thing to Yoda in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on Dagobah.

    • Rummy: I didn't think they'd actually shoot back at us! In 2003, Donald Rumsfeld predicted that the Iraqis would welcome the Americans as liberators.
