    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Misled by Lavonne's definition of prostitution being "social work")
        Penny: Mama, can social workers be put in jail?
        Willona: Of course not, baby. Social workers do a lot of positive things in the community.
        Penny: Oh. (walks back over to Lavonne) My mama says that you can't go to jail for what you're doing. So keep up the good work.

      • Penny: So, what are you in for?
        Lavonne: (referring to her prostitution) I'm in because of my, uh, "social work."

      • Michael: (about he and Penny) We just went for a ride, for a joyride.
        Sergeant: Yeah, you know about a week ago we had a couple of kids your ages who went out on a joyride too, but when the red lights and sirens went on, they panicked and hit the gas. Led us on a high speed chase until they hit the utility cord, so now there's a boy and a girl dead all because they went on a joyride.

      • Lavonne: Hey sweetie, what'd you do to get in here?
        Penny: Well, Mama had to take her teeth to the dentist, and I had to take my skates to the rink. So Michael and I went downstairs and Michael's friend Howard pulled up and said "Hop in", so we hopped. Then a policeman said "pull over" so we pulled. Then he said "you have the right to remain silent", so we remained silent. Those are the highlights, film at 11.

      • Jailhouse Pimp: Say officer, my name is Lenny and I was picked up in the front of Denny's!

      • Thelma: J.J. look at that test paper he brought in here today!
        J.J.: Let me see that test paper you brought in here today.
        (looks at Micheal's failed test)
        J.J.: Mmmm, "F"...not bad!

      • J.J.: Alright Michael, this is it. I've had enough of your mess here. Now if you don't go, you're going to be in for the most cruel and inhumane punishment you've even been in for in your life!
        Michael: Now what are going to do?
        J.J.: Michael, if you don't go, I'm going to make you stay here and eat Thelma's dinner.
