Finally, the movie that proves that justice isn't always poetic, jungle fever isn't always pretty, and higher learning can be a waste of time.

  • [during job interview] Recruiter: Well, I see your hobbies include "drinkin', smokin' weed, and all types of ill shit."
  • Ashtray's cellmate: If you hit a man, in time his wounds will heal. If you steal from a man, you can replace what you steal. And always cross in the green, never in between. Because the honorable Elijah Muhammed Ali floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. And always remember my brother, one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, knick knack, paddy whack, give a dog a bone, two thousand, zero, zero, party, oops! Out of time, my bacon smellin' fine.
