That's the trouble with you young mothers You just said come get her.
And I meant it Thank you, Miss Mildred! I don't know what I'm gonna do now though. If I had known they were going to close down the plant, I would have beat my supervisors up yesterday. Well, what you gonna do?

Troubled little angel Inconsistent, flying blind most of the time Drama queen Preening and untangling Feathers in her wings Captured by her dreams Open up your heart Are you crying, Mama?
No no, I'm fine. We're gonna be all right, Ma.
We've been here before, and don't we always make it? Let me cook this for you. Here you go, Mama. It's one of them old songs. Do I have to listen to this?
Yes, and you're gonna like it. You make me happy All we got to eat is oatmeal? Yes, and you're gonna like that too. Baby, this is for you. You eat that, all right? I got honeys at school that'll give me breakfast. Michael, I want you to eat this. What would I do without you, hmm? Hey hey, man, come on. Come on, have a heart Go up, go up! That's what I'm talking about. Good job, my Mikey. Ma, you see me score? Saw those shoes too. Now don't worry about that, Ma.
I told the guys on the team that they're my lucky shoes. I didn't know you were coming. No, you're staying in school, all right? But I can work and go to school, Ma. Listen, baby, I thought the same thing. I end up having to drop out of school, working a bunch of dead-end jobs just to make ends meet.
I don't want you working. I'm gonna make it work. One thing a black woman know how to do Good game tonight though. I appreciate it, man. I just bought this. How you doing, Miss Brown? You want to roll with us? I've gotta walk my mom and my sisters home.
I can give y'all a ride. You want a ride? Calvin, where you working? You know your mama'd turn over in her grave if she knew, don't you? All right all right, I'll holler, man. I don't want you hanging with them boys.
I don't even want you talking to 'em. But, Ma, you know me and Calvin been hanging since the third grade. Yeah, well, he done changed.
Now I know them boys is in the dope game. I don't want you with them. Do you hear me? Your coach wanted me to fly up here and see you play. You've got a lot of potential. That's what you call it?
Mike's coach wanted me to see your brother play. We run a camp in the summer for high-school players. Are your parents around? I'd like to talk to them about Mike attending. Look, mister, I don't know where you're from, but what his coach should've told you is that I don't want Mike to even think about basketball until after he gets into college, which, judging by his grades, might not even happen.
Grades are important, especially the way Mike plays. Whoa whoa, what's that supposed to mean? It means you're talented, but talent's not enough. You need the right attitude plus skill. Hold on, I got skills.
The reason that coach sent you over here by yourself is 'cause he knows he don't do nothing but tell these boys in this neighborhood that they can make it to the pros. And when they end up with their hearts broken they walk around here mad at the world. That ain't happening to my son, okay? So you're gonna have to excuse me. I've got too much on my mind to deal with this. Girl, you got my money?
No, but I was just wondering if you could keep her for just a few hours while I try and go get it? Girl, do you think I'm crazy? Now you got to pay your money like all the other mothers in here.
When you bring that baby, oh, she be starving, so I know you must be too. I don't know what's the matter with you young girls having all these babies you know you can't take care of. Look, I don't need no lecture from you. I know what I've done.
They're here now, they're my responsibility. Oh, sit down, girly. I'm just talking to you. Eat and settle down. I've got enough bad ones running through here to know that. Now what is going on with you? Somehow I always managed to make it through, but now it's just getting harder and harder. It ain't somehow, it's the Lord. And all that means is you're getting close to a breakthrough.
Till then you just keep praying. I try to pray and I try to live right, but where's it getting me? If you had seen the look on my babies' faces when that man turned my lights off Now you listen to me.
Don't you ever get tired of doing the right thing, 'cause in the end, that's what pays off. You're the best mother I have seen, that's why I'm gonna keep that baby. I wouldn't do that for these other ones here.
At least they can afford to pay you, Miss Mildred. Honey, I don't want to know half of what they're doing to get that money. Take that with you. Thank you, just a couple of hours. Thank you, Miss Mildred. Ladies, ladies, you can't be here.
This is a hard-hat area. Hi, I'm looking for Michael Rose. You'd better go find him. I'm his baby mama, and if I don't find him, you are going to regret it. Wait wait wait wait wait. All right, all right. Brenda, what are you doing here?
I've been calling you. You haven't returned my calls. What do you want? I lost my job, Michael. I've been raising your son by myself and in 17 years I ain't never asked you for nothing.

Your son, he needs some I'll tell you what I'll be right there. I can't go anywhere with you, Cheryl! I've been there, mamacita. Ai, we need money. I'm gonna rob a bank. Come on, be serious. Cheryl, why are you so crazy?

Because I'm tired of getting my hopes up for things that don't happen. You have nothing to lose right now. Come on, there's the bus. Watch your step there. All right, have a good day now. You can say that again. Looks like we gonna see slaves at any minute. She look like she about to fight somebody.

I remember it because it was like it was yesterday. I remember it was Christmas Eve, Daddy said he couldn't get us nothing for Christmas. So he come in and he said, "I'm gonna get the truck ready. You know, we ain't have no engine in the truck. We just had a, you know, old one-horsepower truck.
We went down to that river. I didn't want to jump in right off. That water was below zero! Daddy got out there and he said, "Get in the water! I didn't want to be no disobedient. So I got to that water and I looked at it, and I teenched up there and then I teeter-tottered. Teeter-totter, next thing you know I never learned to swim. I couldn't get the rhythm of the stroke. Why is it that I felt that I might choke?

I'm glad she's good 'cause I know she almost had a heart attack when she heard about all that trouble you were in with all that illegal Gimme the part where they got that rum sopped up in there. Gimme just that rum piece. I'm just glad to see you all right 'cause I was praying for you.
That prayer didn't get no higher than the ceiling. Young man, you know where you going? Excuse me a minute. Brenda, he seems like such a nice young man. I couldn't make it without him. Now just a minute, just a minute. Anybody else at this table want to know who this woman is? I want to know who this woman is. Huh-uh, the devil is a liar. Oh, hell to the no. My daddy wasn't no rolling stone. Well, that's what my mama said. I don't know no Cassidy. I ain't got no reason not to tell the truth.

Yes, her and her mother. You see, when Pop Brown got real sick, he started to tell me everything about his past life. You know, before he got saved and became a deacon.
So you mean to tell me Yep, and her mother was the love of his life in Chicago. What are you saying? You see, when Pop Brown was in Chicago, he was a pimp. And her mother was his bottom ho. You don't talk about my daddy. Hell to the no, this is blasphemy. He was not a pim She was a good girl Shirley, the one that used to make cupcakes for me when I was a child.
Please don't tell me Shirley was no ho. She's a double ho. Ain't nothing going on here but the truth. Brenda, you sure you okay?
But it's a good thing this funeral's tomorrow - so I can get out of here. This is getting pretty full. I should take it out. You sure you want to do that? Ladies, I'm gonna say good night. Nice meeting you too.
Around here men do that. Where I'm from women do it all. Well, then maybe you should live here. What's wrong with my town? It's too quiet here. Then maybe you should let me show you how great a town it is. You know, I'm here for my father's funeral and you're flirting with me. That is in poor taste. Well, we are here today to say - goodbye Daddy, you should've let me go with you!
