  • Quotes (11)

    • Uncle Ruckus: How may I help you? Guests: Table for 2, please? Uncle Ruckus: And how long of a sleep will you be taking.

    • Sarah Dubois: Hey, everyone... (Sarah kisses Granddad on cheek) Sarah Dubois: (speaking in a singing-like manner) I brought peach cobbler! (Riley looks apprehensively in the Tupperware container) Riley: (disgusted by the appearance of the cobbler) Eeeew... Ms. Dubois, your peach cobbler look like throw-up. Granddad: (in a corrective manner) Boy! Riley: (insistent) It do, look! It look like throw-up with peas in it! Ms. Dubois, you been eatin' peas? (Granddad, visibly upset now, grabs Riley's arm and forces Riley to look at him) Granddad: (in a more angrily corrective manner) Boy, come here, what's wrong with you?! Riley: (defiant) What's wrong with me? What's wrong with her?! She the one who brought vomit over here in a Tupperware container! Granddad: That's not vomit! It just looks like vomit. Now apologize to Ms. Dubois. Sarah Dubois: (attempting to placate the situation) Um, it... it's okay, really. Riley: (semi-complying) Fine. Ms. Dubois, I'm sorry your peach cobbler look like vomit with peas. Granddad: Damn it, boy!

    • Ed Wuncler: I own all the businesses on this block. Everything except Meadowlark Memorial Park. I've been trying to buy that park for years, but the state is trying to buttfuck me on the price.

    • Granddad: (to Huey) Fine. If you wanna play around, then you can wash the dishes. Huey: Granddad. Look what you've done to his community. Granddad: (in denial) It's not that bad. Huey: Not that bad?! This place used to be between a coffee shop and a health spa. Now there's a liquor store and a damn Foot Locker. This food is destructive. Granddad: This food is your culture. Huey: Then the culture is destructive. Chico: He's right, señor Freeman. All African-American slaves had to eat was the remains of the pig that the slave masters would not eat. But it was a survival technique. They never had a choice. (holds up a handful of pig intestines) I don't think people are suppose to eat this stuff. At least, not so much. (realises Granddad and Huey are staring at him) What? I can't take a class about African-American culture at the community college?

    • Granddad: I present to you, the Luther. A full pound burger patty covered in cheese. Grilled onion, five strips of bacon, all sandwiched between… Riley: (in amazement) Two donuts. Granddad: Two Krispy Kreme donuts. It's called the Luther because it was supposed to have been invented by Mr. Luther Vandross himself. Huey: Luther Vandross is dead. Granddad: And, what's your point? Hmm?
