    • QUOTES (7)

      • J.J.: I read in a magazine one time that if women get the blues, they go to a beauty parlor and try and change their hairstyle to cheer themselves up. Mama's liable to walk through that door with a blonde Afro!

      • Willona: Florida, why did you hit Michael?
        Wanda: She hit her husband! Free at last! Free at last! You halfway there, sister.
        Florida: Michael is my youngest child. And, Willona, this is no place to discuss anything as personal as that!
        Willona: This is exactly the place to talk about it, Florida!
        Cora: Florida, why did you hit your son?
        Florida: I don't have to answer that! I don't know.
        Wanda: She was ashamed she didn't hit her husband.

      • (Florida walks in on Willona talking to James, after Willona said she forgot something for the laundromat)
        Florida: Willona, what you doing here? I thought you said you forgot something?
        Willona: You see how forgetful I'm getting? I thought this was my apartment.

      • Florida: Damn!
        Willona: Florida!
        Florida: I felt like saying 'damn' and I said it. Now I got it out of my system, I don't have to say it anymore. Where is that damned elevator?

      • Michael: Hey, Thelma? Why do they call it men-o-pause?
        Thelma: Michael, what are you looking up a word like that for? That's a term for women.
        Michael: Then why don't they call it women-o-pause?

      • Florida: James, there's a whole world out there, and I'm not a part of it. I want to be somebody, too!
        James: Florida, you always been somebody to me, Florida. But what am I supposed to be with this new thing?
        Florida: My husband. And I'm your wife. James, I don't want to walk ahead of you, but I don't want to walk behind you either. Honey, I want to walk with you.

      • Florida: It isn't at all that way with my husband.
        : Oh, you mean he considers you a person?
        Florida: Yes, a person. Not just a cook or a sex object.
        Wanda: Oh, yeah? How often you have relations?
        Florida: That's none of your business! And plenty!
