      • Robert: Nobody likes a loser.
        Michael: That's not true. J.J. has lots of friends.

      • Michael: Did you see that, J.J.? He smiled.
        J.J.: He learned that from me.

      • J.J.: You used to laugh, but you don't do that no more either, you've got to laugh! Laugh! (making funny faces) Boogie boogie boo!

      • (trying to keep Robert awake)
        J.J.: There's a whole damn world out there to live for, and not a damn thing worth dying for, people care, I care!

      • (trying to keep Robert awake)
        J.J.: Maybe you should go back to school. A lot of guys drop out of high school, and you remember I wasn't the brightest guy either. My momma once promised me $5 if I could raise my grades to an F. In one semester I got two M's and a K-, try explaining that one to your folks. You remember how I spent my senior year? As a junior!

      • Thelma: You know J.J., you taken this thing really good, you hated him in high school , cause he was your main competition and he always won.
        Micheal: Yeah, he got all the fine foxes and you got all the leftovers.
        J.J.: Hey Micheal, ain't nothing wrong with leftovers, if you know how to reheat them.

      • J.J.: Why would anybody want to kill themselves? You know, when I get up in the morning, I don't know if it's going to be a good day or a bad day, until I look in the mirror. But there is one thing I know for sure, there is a God.
