  • Quotes

    • Teri: Should I leave?
      Maxine: No. It's good that you're here. I came over to ask Bird how to approach you about borrowing five thousand dollars.
      Teri: Oh, well I'm glad I'm here to tell you not to approach me.

  • Notes

    • Flashback: When Maxine is a teenager, she makes a fool of herself by plucking her eyebrows too thin because Teri and Bird tell her that they are thicker than their father's. Mama Joe teaches Maxine a valuable lesson of how ridiculous a person can make themselves seem by trying to be like someone else and not being themselves.
