  • Quotes

    • Top Dog (to Carlton): It's you we don't want.
      Carlton: Why? I did everything you asked. I washed your laundry, mopped the floors, scrubbed the toilets.
      Top Dog: Everything your butler does for you.

    • Top Dog: Pledge Banks, you only speak when you are spoken to.
      Carlton: Well are you speaking to me now or..?

    • Will: In the words of my cousin, I'm gonna make like a tree and leave.
      Carlton: It's make like a banana and split.
      Will: I'll keep that in mind.

    • Carlton: You think I'm a sellout. Why? Because I live in a big house or dress a certain way? Or maybe it's because I like Barry Manilow? Being black isn't what I'm trying to be, it's what I am. I'm running the same race and jumping the same hurdles you are, so why are you tripping me up? You said we need to stick together, but you don't even know what that means. If you ask me, you're the real sellout.

    • Philip: You know, this really irritates me. I have worked very hard to give my family a good life, and suddenly, somebody tells me there's a penalty for success? (to Carlton) I'm sorry you had to go through that, son. When are we going to stop doing this to each other?
