  • Everybody's chipping in hard.
  • Maybe I went about somethings the wrong way ... There's pressure on all of us.
  • That rug reminds me of Ron and Sam's relationship.
  • It just so happens that Deena defies the laws of intelligence. I never thought someone would make Mooki look like a rocket scientist.
  • Wow. Ronnie's mom's gangsta.
  • When Ron is crying on my shoulder, good old Sammi, the sweetest b!tch you'll ever met, is callin' another dude. Sammi, you got caught you sneaky bitch!
  • I run into my boy, Arvin ... he looks like a jacked-up-guido-MacGyver!
