    this episode was a classic. it was hilarious and in a way it was revealling. it showed that grandad can love.the funny thing is, all through the episode grandad didnt know she was a hoe! the best part of the episode was when "a pimp named slickback" showed up. i was cracking up for about 10 minutes! and all through the show riley was cracking me up too."can she run really fast in high heeles?" that ws one of the funiest lines i've seen in a show in a long while. the way the show is written has you dying for the next one. this is looking to be a pretty good series.moreless
  • all right in this episode is all about robert freeman trying to find love but where he is looking for it is in the wrong place and he meets kristole like the champagne. robert is blinded by the fact that he\'s getting old.moreless

    okay so robert\'s found love! so he thinks but can\'t see the darkness that is kristole like the champagne. only riley and huey can see that there grandad is making a big mistake by thinking that kristole is actually in love with him and so huey is trying to life with but riley is just wants her out butr the whole time riley\'s doesn\'t say anything to her to even try to get rid of her. he leaves it to his older brother huey to try and get rid of her.



    okay so at the beginnig of this show we see robert in the pharmacy looking at some health products until a little boy starts acting up and his mother is completly lost on what to do until robert say\'s \"you ever try beating his ass\"

    so he shows her how swing his belt and hands it to her. so she beat the **** out of him and then we meet kristole like the champagne. when she introduces herself huey immediately goes on attack and ask\'s if she is a stripper

    \"kristole like the champagne sounds like a stripper name to me. kristole like the champage might you be a stripper\"

    \"and what do you know about stripper\'s little boy\"

    \"not much but i know there usually named after some type of liguor\"

    that\'s the last we see of the boy\'s until they get home but even before they get home robert already asked kristole if she wanted to go on a date with him

    so he takes her to swiss chalet nothing but class there

    when the date is all said and done we see them walking down the road and everyone is looking in amazment like wow! check out that chick the old man got.

    so we get home and riley and huey are arguing about the situation then bang! in comes the stripper and grandad and they do a pan out shot and with riley\'s voice in the background

    \"as much as i wanted to believe grand dad found love riley was right he was trying to turn a hoe into a housewife\"

    then there\'s a commercial break

    someone post that quote where the old one is please!

    so we come back from commercial

    and robert and kristole are gone shopping! oh boy! did you see the price of that dress man 1576.78 somewhere in that area i was like wow he\'s getting played good!

    so back at hoome huey\'s doing laundry stripper laundry

    and then he get\'s to talk to his granddad about kristole

    saying everything but robert is still blinded by the fact thyat he is getting old then we here a voice

    \"robert i\'m ready to go shopping now\"

    so he takes her shopping again but htis time there\'s no fancy little cut scene we just see riley and kristole playing playstaion

    and riley is making excuses why he\'s losing.

    \"my x button doesn\'t work\"

    so he storms off and the huey get\'s his first chance to try and get rid of herand realize\'s it\'s gonna be harder than he once thought

    so he follows here around in the back of there uncle\'s car

    talking all the most convincing evidence from where she works to here running from the cops

    ready! for the best part after riley and huey show there grand dad the picture\'s he\'s finally ready to get rid of that hoe

    but when she walks in she say\'s it\'s all done by photoshop and bang he believes her

    then the knock at the door

    \"there\'s a man in a purple suit at the door\"

    kristole hides underneath the table and we meet slickback the pimp

    oops! a pimp named slickback

    well then kristole say\'s i\'m not going and he\'s say\'s the pimp\'s prayer

    \"Let us pray the Pimp\'s prayer: Lord, please pray for the soul of this **** and guide my pimp hand and make it strong Lord, so that she might learn a hoe\'s place. Amen\"

    and tadawww! robert stops his hand with his belt.

    \"no women well be hit in this house hoe or not\"

    so slickback leaves peacefully but and robert and kristole have there last words

    \"please kristole stay here start your life over with me\"

    \"i can\'t do that. thanks for trying to save me\"

    the the shows over with slickback driving away and kristole chasing after him.

    \"man but she should can run in those heels\"





    yeah! so wow! isn\'t this show something from a comic strip if i heard 8 year old and 10 year olds say stuff half as smart as them i would think t.v. is doing something right.

    yes this is my favourite show.

  • Hmmm it was ok. Not the best

    8.5
    This was a funny one but its a little weird. This is mot my favorite episode. It was ok. A little cheasy. I mean he just so happens to get a whore for a girl friend. I dont think any one can be that dense. Crystal was an interesting character. But the best person in the episode is a pimp named Slickback. I can tell many people liked him since he makes a few more apperences on the show. This episode has a few good underlining meanings. Like Everyone wants someone to love... even if it is a whore. Like I said it was ok but not great.moreless
  • it some good parts.

    9.5
    The Boondocks by this time to me were still a little new. So then this episode comes, and finally I learn the names of Huey and Riley. I loved this episode, I thought it was hilarious. Riley's rants about hoes were really funny and entertaining. Huey new it was sort of true. And a Pimp Named Slickback, yes the whole thing not Slickback, it's like a tribe call quest say the whole thing, A Pimp Named Slickback! That had me rolling. This episode had good animation, story, and had the only song that season I knew "Kanye West's Gold Digger". 10/10 Great episode, nice job Rodney Barnes and Aaron McGruder.moreless
