9-Year-Old Norbit: What did you do that for?
One of the Bullies: 'Cause we felt like it.
Both Bullies: What are you gonna do about it?
[The bullies pick on Norbit, by one of them simply shaking him on his side and the other beating him up. Suddenly, a 10-year-old Rasputia comes over and lifts the bullies up by the shirts]

Norbit: Some kinda... weird, satanic, potato art?
Rasputia: Mm-mm.
[Rasputia takes out a container of acid]
Rasputia: What's this?
Norbit: Looks like the acid, we used down at the quarry.
Rasputia: [stomps foot] RIGHT! But this is Miss Pretty Little Thang's little face. And Norbit, if you ever see her again, if you ever *talk* to 'er again, if you ever to so much as to think about the girl again, this is what's gonna happen to 'er.

Rasputia: [laughs after Kate doesn't believe Norbit's story about Deion is a corrupt goldigger/cheater] Well, well, well, Norbit. You lose again! Once a loser, always a loser. Now, come on! Let's go!
Norbit: [to Kate] Yeah, I thought you'd feel that way about it, Kate. And that's why I took the liberty of inviting some of Deion's ex-wives down so maybe they can tell you for themselves. LADIES!
[Deion is shocked and frightened to see his three exes and their children walk in the church]
Ex-Wife #1: Hello, Antoine! I've been looking everywhere for you.
Children: Daddy!
Ex-Wife #2: Antoine? He told me his name was Luther!
Rasputia: Who is that ho?
Ex-Wife #3: Luther? he told me he was gay!
Deion Hughes: No, no, no. Y'all got me confused with my gay twin brother, Antoine Luther.
