Quote from Everybody Hates the Guidance Counselor

Adult Chris: [v.o.] My dad didn't go to college and neither did my mother, so I tried to find out if I knew anybody who did.
Chris: Hey, Manny, did you ever go to college?
Manny: Always wanted to, but I found out I couldn't.
Chris: Why not?
Manny: I had this thing called "extenuating circumstances."
Mr. Omar: Like what?
Manny: I never finished high school. So I got a job here and when Manny died, I took over.
Chris: Wait, you had the same name as the owner?
Manny: No, no, no, my name was Lester. But I had to make a choice: change the sign or change my name. And that sign was expensive.


Quote from Everybody Hates Ex-Cons

Manny: Well, the man was asking for your help, and you turned him down. Sometimes people need a hand. Now, back when I had troubles, if it wasn't for Supercuts Johnson, I don't know where I'd be today.
Risky: Supercuts Johnson? Who's that?
Adult Chris: [v.o.] Anywhere relation to Jehri Curl Johnson?
Manny: He was a barber when I was doing time in prison. He used to cut hair on death row.

James: You was in the joint?
Manny: Oh, yeah.
Monk: Man, what'd you do?
Manny: You know that tag on the mattress that says "Do not pull off"? I pulled that thing off. Do not pull that tag off, man. They are not playing with y'all.

Quote from Everybody Hates Blackie

Manny: Where'd you hear that from? Radio or something, man? Ain't got no damn TV, so I heard.
Julius: Maybe you should talk to Mr. Lincoln.
Manny: A penny? You can keep your penny, man. I don't know nothing, man. I haven't heard anything. No one's told me anything. Zero.
Julius: Hey, hey, hey, you sure? I mean, maybe you want to talk to Mr. Roosevelt, too.
Manny: You know what? I would love to talk to Mr. Roosevelt. [holds up imaginary phone] Yes, Mr. President. Yeah, Julius is standing right here. Yeah, yeah. He ain't got enough money. No, he's really short of money. Yeah, he's still standing here. I will tell him, Mr. President. Okay, okay, I'll tell him. Bye-bye. ["hangs up"] Um, he says to go talk to Kill Moves 'cause Kill Moves has his ear to the street.

Quote from Everybody Hates Houseguests

Greg: I can't decide on a hairstyle. I'm stuck between Verdine White and Dr. J.
Manny: I cannot cut your hair, Greg.
Greg: Why not?
Manny: First of all, your hair's not long enough to be Verdine White, and it's not curly enough to be Dr. J. I've never used these scissors on straight hair. I don't know what will happen. I'll start cutting your hair, man, sparks start flying everywhere, your whole head catch on fire. And I will not be sued by White people!

Kill Moves: It even stopped my hallucinations for a... while. Hey, hey, hey, hey! Charlie, where you going? Come back, man. I need to borrow five dollars.
Manny: You see that, man? Look, you tell them to take one teaspoon. One teaspoon, 'cause it'll knock you out for five hours. But it works.
Jerome: Five hours? Let me hold that bottle.
Manny: Are you sick?
Jerome: N-No.
Manny: I didn't think so. Here you go, Chris, man. Remember what I said now. One teaspoon. You're all done. Uh! Next!
Adult Chris: [v.o.] He gave the same elixir to people who need to take paint off of cars.

Quote from Everybody Hates Earth Day

Quote from Everybody Hates Being Cool

Manny: You know, you could do this yourself, Julius.
Julius: Yeah, but every time I do, I nick my head.
Manny: You know what's going on? You got a lot of bumps back here, man. Lot of lumps in the back of your head, man. My grandmother used to read these things, man. The configuration is telling me you got a lot of tension.
Julius: Yeah, well, that's true.

Manny: Good luck, man.
