      • (Rozzie is at the bank with Florida, withdrawing the lottery winnings)
        Rozzie: I'm not as dumb as Edna makes out, I CAN read NUMBERS! You see, you see, the number on my shirt.....seven, fiiive. That's Mean Joe Green's jersey number, and my dress size. That's what Edna says.
        Florida: Well, if you can read numbers, why didn't you learn reading like Edna did?
        Rozzie: Edna only did it so she wouldn't get in trouble with her probation officer. She was smart to play along.
        Florida: Well if you ask me, I don't think either one of you is smart. In fact, what you're doing is down right DUMB!
        Rozzie: You're calling us dumb, YOU'RE the one that's giving up the twenty-five hundred.
        Florida: I'd give up 25 million where my children are concerned. If you weren't holding that gun, I'd give you 25 million licks upside your head!

      • (J.J. and Florida at the bank)
        Florida: J.J., put away that cigar, you'll make everybody think we're millionaires.
        J.J: Well Ma, when you got it, ya show it!
        Florida: Well, we ain't got it, so stow it!

      • Florida: Thelma, call the police.
        Michael: Ma, the police aren't going to come to this neighborhood!
        Florida: Oh yes they will. You tell 'em we're white!

      • Edna: To make sure you don't get any ideas, me and my little friend here are gonna keep an eye on Black Pride (Michael), Black Beauty (Thelma), and the Creature from the Black Lagoon (J.J.)

      • Thelma: Edna, just for some fast money, you know you're going to end up in jail again?
        Edna: Well, (smelling Willona's perfume that she sprayed on earlier) at least I'll smell rich.
