  • [Following Pepa giving a lap dance to a man during their rehearsal] Salt: You have to act like you're [bleep] and wind your head (tilts her head down and starts moving it around), you're winding your head all around. Pepa: I'm just doing a routine. It's almost like. (bending over and moving her head around) Salt: If your head is right over the guys crotch and you start going like that... Pepa: No, actually I started on his knee and then I worked my way up. I just don't go like this between his legs and stay there. I go up and I work like this (moving her head around in circle above the floor and then standing back up).I didn't think I was doing anything wrong. It's like if I do something you're going to pick me apart for everything I do wrong. Salt: I'm not picking you apart for everything you do, cause I don't even want to do this period. The fact that I'm here is even a compromise. I don't know Sandi, the fact that we're mothers, and that people see us in a certain way... Pepa: I just mean. Salt: Okay give the guy [bleep]. That's fine. (both laughing) Pepa: Silly, I wasn't giving the guy [bleep]. That's the whole thing I was dancing on him and -- you know. He was whack anyway, I'm gonna have to throw him back.

  • [Talking about Salt when she left Salt-N-Pepa] Pepa: Now when I see her, the first thing I think about is, like, how could you do this to me, how could you have done that to us?

  • [Talking to Pepa about why she originally left Salt-N-Pepa] Salt: I was only thinking about how I'm going to stop throwing up five-six times a day. I don't think you understand what being bulimic is, to deal with and that is what I was going through. So, whatever I did at that time where I felt like I was insane, because of what I was going through, I'm not responsible for whether you'd leave me or you think I'm a liar or a hypocrite or whatever you think about me, I'm so free right now of that.

  • Salt: Salt-N-Pepa haven't performed since I left, I'm nervous. I'm living a really comfortable, quite, peaceful life. Pepa is like this storm cloud coming in and when it hits, it's going to do some serious damage. Pepa:: Salt just likes to control everything. If there is something she don't like, I kinda gotta go with it, cause she'll throw it up in my face and go 'I don't need this, I'll walk away from it, I don't have to do this.'

  • Salt: Pep and men. Good lord. Pepa: Salt always has strong opinions on about my men. Salt: She was just always attracted to the bad boys. Pepa: I had, like, the worst luck with men. Salt: Pep had a series of bad boys. Pepa: I haven't done nothing and when I say nothing, anything in two years. Not even a kiss with a guy. Salt: Peppa always says 'you're married, you don't know what's going on out here, you don't know how it is to be single.' Pepa: I'm on the prowl. I'm in the wild right now, I'm like the animal in the forest. I'm ready to pounce on something, you know, and she don't nothing about that.

  • [Following the double date, where Pepa's date just told everybody he was stabbed by his ex-girlfriend] Salt: Red flag, red flag. (imitating a beeping noise) Pepa: I know, but you got to get your feet wet. It's hard to date. Salt: And his woman stabbed him? Pepa: Okay. So? A guy hit me in the head with a can of paint, you know that story. Salt: And that was wrong. Pepa: He's not with the girl still. Now, if he still with the girl, I'd be like 'damn you're still with her even tough she stabbed you?' Salt: Red flag, red flag. You think this is the guy, do you think he has potential? Pepa: You don't see yield signs. Salt: You know how we didn't pay attention to red flags in the past? Now, we're at the age where we don't have to waste time. You always take care of men, you want someone that's going to take care of you. But, you have to pay attention to the red flags Sandi. I saw some and I think you saw some too, I think you're so in denial right now. Pepa: I'm not in denial, I didn't say I was in denial. I mean, I see a few.

  • [Talking to her husband about her experience with the matchmaker] Salt: I'm so frustrated. I've been at that matchmaker all day, and I still feel like I haven't found anyone for Pep. I'm so tired and disappointed, cause I just went in there thinking that I was really going to find somebody, you know. The guys that I met were just, this one's a player, this one's a gigolo, so I'm like (annoyed grunt).

  • [Salt telling Pepa she has set her up on a blind date] Salt: I found somebody, that I think is great and I just want you to open your mind. Pepa: Oh, lord. Salt: This is about expanding beyond the norm. He's a professional. Pepa: How does he look? What does he do? Salt: You don't want to ask him those questions when he gets here? Pepa: No, I want to know right now. Salt: Ask him when he comes. You have to have something to talk about. I'm going to name all of his good attributes -- he's smart, he's a professional, he has the biggest heart you ever want to know. Pepa: He has hair? (silence) Salt: No. Pepa: It sounds like you're describing someone round. They sound round. Salt: Just relax and have fun. Pepa: Oh jeez, the dating game.
