      • Tyrone: I can't believe you came. My own sister didn't even come.
        Anthony: So what, Tyrone. You think that you're the only kid in the world whose family doesn't care about him? Well let me tell you something. I grew up in a neighborhood where people put cigarettes out on your head. I never met my father, and my mother was an addict who left me behind when I was two weeks old. I didn't see her again 'til I was nine. Then she wrote and said she was coming. One day she showed up at school after I had told everybody how beautiful my mama was and how she was coming just to see me. You know what she did, Tyrone? She got out of her car. She walked across the playground and picked up some other kid and hugged him and starting crying and calling him by my name. She did that right in front of everybody. I was her son and she didn't even know me. So you see. I've been where you are right now. And if it hadn't been for that one person, my grandmama, loving me and kicking my butt everyday I'd still be there.

      • (Anthony is going over spelling words with Tyone)
        Anthony: Cantaloupe.
        Suzanne: C-A-N-T-A-L-O-U-P-E
        Anthony: That's very good, Suzanne.
        Suzanne: (beaming) I eat it all the time.

      • Mary Jo: You told some guy's parents that he's a bisexual?
        Suzanne: That's right. I always tell the parents. And I'm not sorry either. I don't believe in bisexuals. I figure the rest of us have to choose, so why shouldn't they?

      • Suzanne: Well, I just had breakfast at the country club and it's all everyone is talking about. They want to know if we're gonna change the name 'Sugarbaker's' to 'Bonnie and Clydes'.
        Mary Jo: Well, I hope you told them it's all just a big mistake. The child in question is in juvenile hall and Julia has not been charged with anything.
        Suzanne: No. I just said that it was her time of the month and her hormones had made her insane.
