Power Book II: Ghost Season 1 Episode 2: "Exceeding Expectations" Quotes
Paula: So, your husband was Ghost? The FEDS could never prove that.

Davis: Hey, we need you to deliver his eulogy tomorrow. And blow his ass up.
Tariq: With him right there in the ground?
Davis: It's his legacy or your Mom's life, kid? Get some balls.
Tariq: What are we here to talk about?
Simon Stern: Just like your father. Always eager to get right down to business.
Tariq: I'm nothing like my father.
Simon Stern: Oh, I remember reading Great Expectations back in my Stansfield days. Classic tale about ones moral code being more important than ambition. And that's why it's a story for poor people. The thing about your father, Tariq, is that he could never accept that his ambition was his moral code. He thought they were two separate things, so he was always at war with himself.
Tariq: I never thought of it that way. I never thought of him that way.

Uncle Gabe: I'm your father's uncle, Gabe. Just wanted to pay my respects. You remind me of him so much, you know?

Uncle Gabe: No, no, no. But you're bright. I can tell, just like he was. He had a good heart. For a time there, we thought we might lose him to the streets, you know? Your grandfather used to say, 'You go down that road, there's only two ways you're going to end up. Either dead or in jail.'
When this goes to trial, you make sure I testify. Tasha is no queen pin. And Saxe is dirty as fuck.Blanca [to Davis & Paula]
Remember how Ghost always used to say there's only two ways that drug dealers end up? Dead or in jail? Well, I think I found another way.Tariq [to Tasha]
