Boys, things are bad. They're gonna sell this place to the board of education and I'll be out on the street. That money's gotta be in the Cook County Assessors office within 11 days.
They wouldn't turn you out would they?
Shit. What's one more old nigger to the board of education?
Curtis, you and the penguin are the the only family we got. And you're the only one that was ever good to us. Singing Elmore James tunes and blowing the harp for us down here.
Well the sister was right, you boys could use a little churching up. Slide on down to the Triple Rock and catch Reverend Cleophis. You boys listen to what he's got to say.
Curtis, I don't wanna listen to no jive ass preacher talking to me about heaven and hell.
Jake, you get wise! you get to church!
