Quote from Julius

Julius: Baby, what happened?
Tonya: Mama burned me with the hot comb again.
Julius: Oh, let Daddy see. Ooh! Rochelle, that looks bad.
Rochelle: Ah, she'll live. I don't think it'll make a scar.

Quote from Rochelle

Julius: She's ten years old. Why I got to spend money getting her hair done?
Rochelle: She's tender-headed, she moves around too much, and she keeps getting burned. And I'm sick of this. So, either you pay to get it done, or you do it.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] If my father didn't want to do something, my mother got to decide how it would get done.
[flashback to the kitchen:]
Julius: Why you cooking biscuits and ribs for breakfast?
Rochelle: You gonna do it?
Julius: Go ahead.
[flashback to the bathroom:]
Julius: Why are you cleaning the tub with a broom?
Rochelle: Are you gonna do it?
Julius: Go ahead.

Quote from Rochelle

Adult Chris: [v.o.] Even though it was an accident, after breaking Drew's hand, I fell horrible.
Rochelle: I'm gone for ten minutes, and y'all are breaking bones. I knew that karate class wasn't a good idea.
Julius: Rochelle, it was an accident, just boys being boys.
Rochelle: Do you even know what they're teaching Chris down there? Where were you when this happened?
Julius: Asleep.
Rochelle: Mm.
Julius: What's that supposed to mean?
Adult Chris: [v.o.] "Mm" means she's gonna blame him for the rest of his life.
[flash-forward to 2028:]
Rochelle: Asleep again, huh? That's how Chris broke Drew's hand.
Julius: Rochelle, that was 45 years ago.
Rochelle: Mmm-hmm.
[present:]
Julius: Don't worry about it. I'll deal with it. I'll go down there tomorrow.
Rochelle: Mmm-hmm.

Quote from Drew

Chris: Hey, you need any help with anything? I could tie your shoe.
Drew: Nah, I got it. I can tie it with one hand.
Chris: Okay, um I could write out your homework.
Drew: No, I'm fine. I never wrote with my left hand before, but it turns out, I'm really good at it.
Drew: Want to see something else I could do? [does push-ups] I always thought I needed two hands to do this.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] I had to face facts. Drew could do more with one arm than I could do with five.
Drew: Want to sit on my back?

Quote from Tonya

Tonya: Daddy, do you have a girlfriend?
Julius: What?!
Rochelle: Well?
Julius: No! Why would you ask me a question like that, baby?
Tonya: 'Cause men ain't no good.
Julius: Where did you hear that?
Tonya: At the beauty shop.

Quote from Vanessa

Vanessa: Now he's staying with Lisa.
Pam: Light-skinned Lisa?
Vanessa: Bow-legged Lisa.
Rochelle: Wait a minute. I thought Lisa was with Darius.
Vanessa: She was, until Darius caught her with his brother.
Rochelle: The one with no job?
Vanessa: Yeah, yeah, him, yeah, and he married, too. A wife, a girlfriend, and no job. You know these men, they just ain't no good.
Rochelle: They ain't no good.
Pam: Get out of here.
Vanessa: Oh, I'd throw the hot grits.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] Tonya never listened to my mother until she heard something she wasn't supposed to.

Quote from Vanessa

Tonya: So is Richard still cheating?
Vanessa: Is the Pope still Catholic?
Pam: Vanessa!
Vanessa: Oh, I'm sorry, it's a reflex.

Quote from Tonya

Vanessa: Tonya, I don't think that we should be talking about Richard.
Tonya: Why not?
Vanessa: Because that's grown folks' business.
Tonya: Oh, is that why my mom and dad got in an argument?
Pam: Uh... Uh... An argument?
Vanessa: About what?
Tonya: Well, I asked my daddy if he had a girlfriend, and he said, "Why?" And then my mama said, "Well, do you?" And then he asked me why I asked him that, and then...
Adult Chris: [v.o.] Although my mother told the girls not to gossip to Tonya, she didn't say anything about Tonya gossiping to them.

Quote from Adult Chris

Adult Chris: [v.o.] Even though I was the oldest, I never felt like Drew's big brother. People expect a big brother to be better at everything. Dominique Wilkins was the Human Highlight Show. And Gerald Wilkins watched a lot of film. Bill Clinton was the President of the United States. But Roger Clinton needed a presidential pardon. But with me and Drew, it seemed like no matter what we did, he always came out on top.
Kid #1: I'll take Drew.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] He was better at sports. He was better with girls.
Pair of Girls #1: Hi, Drew.
Pair of Girls #2: Hi, Drew.
Old Woman: Hi, Chris.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] She's kind of cute. He looked older.
Drew: Two for Scarface.
Ticket Seller: You can go. But your little brother's gonna have to see something else.
Chris: But I'm older than him.
Ticket Seller: You want to see a movie, or don't you?
Adult Chris: [v.o.] I actually went to see Mr. Mom that day. It was pretty good. But worst of all, he was a better big brother than me.
[As a bunch of boys play keep away with Tonya's doll:]
Tonya: I'm gonna get my big brother on you. Chris! Go get Drew!

Quote from Julius

Julius: What are you gonna do with karate, anyway?
Chris: Just in case someone messes with Drew or Tonya, I'm gonna be able to do something.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] My father knew I couldn't fight, but he never said anything about it.
Julius: How much is it gonna cost?
Chris: It's free.
Julius: Oh. All right, go ahead.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] For free, my father would let me learn almost anything.
[fantasy: Chris is standing next to a masked man in front of a chalkboard outside a liquor store:]
Julius: What are you doing?
Chris: Taking "How to Knock Off a Liquor Store" lessons.
Julius: How much does it cost?
Chris: It's free.
Julius: Go ahead.
[Chris takes the gun from the teacher, pulls down his face cap and walks into the liquor store:]
Chris: Get on the floor, now!

Quote from Chris

Mr. Jackson: I am Mr. Jackson, your sensei. Shotokan Karate is a very ancient art of combat. "Karate" literally means "empty hands." Now what we're gonna do here today is learning how to whupp somebody's ass with your empty hands. Matei! Matei!
Chris: So, are we going to be learning how to break boards?
Mr. Jackson: You got something against boards? Huh? What has a board ever done to you? Has a board ever embarrassed you in front of your woman? Asked Yolanda for her phone number and dared you to do something about it? And did you just stand there and watch her get into the boy's car and just drive off?
Chris: Uh... no.
Mr. Jackson: That's why we ain't learning how to break no damn boards.

Quote from Vanessa

Vanessa: Girl, don't tell me, that's your daughter?
Rochelle: Mm, sure is. Isn't she beautiful?
Pam: Yeah, she's big, huh?
Vanessa: Ooh, she sure is. Pretty soon she'll be old enough to date Richard.
Rochelle: Oh, do not tell me his old ass is still chasing after young girls.
Pam: Girl, I thought you knew.
Vanessa: They're the only ones dumb enough not to run when they see him coming. He old, he broke. He need a fool.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] There's one thing that you get at the beauty shop that you don't have to pay for: good gossip.

Quote from Rochelle

Vanessa: And I heard Peggy. She said that she caught them in her house.
Rochelle: Wait! In her- In her house?
Pam: Yes.
Rochelle: Well, did she stab him?
Pam: Girl.
Rochelle: 'Cause you know I would have stabbed him.
Pam: Oh, I know you would have stabbed him.

Quote from Adult Chris

Adult Chris: [v.o.] Even with a broken hand, Drew still managed to come out on top. If I had known you could get this much attention with a cast, I would have let him break my hand.

Quote from Vanessa

Vanessa: I can't believe she repeated all that to Julius.
Rochelle: I didn't even know she was listening. She barely listens to a word I say.
Pam: Rochelle, I am so sorry.
Vanessa: Me, too. From now on, we watch what we say in front of her.
Rochelle: [sighs] Let me go pay half down on our light bill before they close. She'll be okay, though, right?
Pam: Oh, go ahead, she'll be fine.
Vanessa: We'll watch Lil' Miss Nosy for you. [all laugh]

Quote from Rochelle

Rochelle: Tonya, you just can't go around telling our business!
Tonya: Why not? Everybody else does it.
Rochelle: Well, that's different.
Tonya: How?
Rochelle: Well...
Adult Chris: [v.o.] My father was worried about Tonya learning the wrong things, so my mother taught her a few things herself.
Rochelle: Tonya, you're a big girl now, okay? And you got to know that there is no difference between what they said to you and what you said to them. It's still gossip. But you got to remember two things. You talk about other people, not yourself. And number two, what you say in the shop stays in the shop. Got it?
Tonya: So don't tell Daddy.
Rochelle: Right.

Quote from Julius

Julius: Listen, you're going to have to be more careful, if you're going to be doing karate. I know it was just an accident, but you could have really hurt Drew.
Chris: Dad? It wasn't an accident.
Julius: What?
Chris: I hate that Drew can do everything better than me. Tonya even calls on him when she gets in trouble. We were fighting. I tried the handbreaker on him, and I fell.
Julius: Chris, being brothers ain't easy. All right? I had six brothers, and whether you like it or not, somebody is going to be better than you at something. You can't be jealous. He's the only brother you got. Besides, I don't know if you realize it, but he looks up to you.
Chris: He does?
Adult Chris: [v.o.] I didn't realize that no matter how cool your little brother is, he still wants to be like his big brother. It worked out for Keenan and Damon Wayans. Not so great for Eric and Lyle Menendez.
Julius: You need to apologize to your brother, Chris. [Chris gets up] That's my boy.

Quote from Drew

Chris: I tried to break your arm on purpose.
Drew: How come?
Chris: 'Cause I'm tired of you being better than me at everything.
Drew: What are you talking about? I bet you're better than me at some stuff.
Chris: Like what?
Drew: I don't know.
Chris: Uh-huh.
Drew: But you're still my big brother.
Chris: Yeah, but you're bigger than I am.
Drew: Yeah, but every time Mom and Dad leave the house, they always put you in charge. I wish I could be in charge.
Chris: That's just a lot of work.
Drew: So? Plus, you get to go to school all the way in Brooklyn Beach. I wish I could ride the bus to school every day.
Chris: You do?
Drew: Yeah! That's so cool. Everybody in my class is always asking me what it's like at your school. You're the coolest big brother out of all my friends.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] It never occurred to me that even though Drew was bigger and cooler, and better with girls, the coolest thing to him was that he had me.

Quote from Chris

Chris: It was embarrassing. When they heard Drew's name, they ran.
Greg: And you were standing right there?
Chris: Just like I'm standing right here. I've got to do something. I get the crap kicked out of me here. Even my little sister knows I can't fight. That's why I'm gonna ask my mom if I can take karate.
Greg: Why don't you take boxing lessons?
Chris: Nah. If you tell people you can box, then everyone wants to fight.
Greg: How come nobody messes with your brother?
Chris: Because he knows karate, and if they mess with him, they think he might kill them.
Greg: That's perfect. If you learn karate, you'll never have to fight.

Quote from Rochelle

Rochelle: All right, Tonya, hold your ear.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] I imagine this is how it must be before they hit the switch.
Tonya: Ow! You burned my finger!
Rochelle: Well, if you'd be still, that wouldn't happen.
Tonya: Why can't I just go to the beauty shop like you?
Rochelle: You got beauty shop money?
Tonya: No.
Rochelle: All right then. Be still. Your daddy barely wants to pay to get my hair done. I know he's not gonna spend the extra ten dollars to get yours done, especially when I can do it here at home.
Chris: Hey, what's burning?
Tonya: My hair. Ow!
Rochelle: Tonya, stop fidgeting so much. You're moving like a squirrel. Sit still!
