  • [on the phone, leaving a message] Babe, you're acting like I have cheated on you, and I have never cheated on you. Except for that one time, with myself, and you caught me.
  • That's just it, she's everything I'm not. You know, she's my other half. Without her, I'm not whole. You know the thing about meeting your other half is you're walking around, you think you're happy, you think you're whole, then you realize you ain't shit without her. Then you can't go back to being just a half because you know what it's like to be whole.


  • I don't want to hear about you sleeping with my daughter. You're sleeping with me now.

Marilyn: Thank you, Simon. You can call me Marilyn.

Simon: [reeling off "black" jokes] Why can't black people listen to country music?
Keisha: Why?
Simon: Because every time they say "hoedown", they think their sister got shot!

Simon: [after telling a series of black jokes, family laughing] What are three things a black guy can't get? A black eye, a fat lip and a job.
[laughing stops]
Howard: I tell you. I'm going to kick that boy's ass!

Percy: If you're going to marry one of these women, sometimes it's going to hurt like hell. And all you can do is admit that you're wrong and know that she's always right.
Simon: She's right?
Percy: That's right.
Simon: Always?
Percy: Right.
Simon: Right?
Percy: That's right.
Simon: All right, okay. What about all that talk about my dignity?
Percy: Do you love her? Do you want her? Then she's always right.

Kimbra: Did he just say bump, bump, bump?
Naomi: Yes he did, and it's Percy Jones' fault!
