Tasha: Riq, Tommy is a fucking killer.
Tariq: Ma, so am I!

We all make mistakes, Monet. I'm just trying to correct mine.


Riley: He's gonna get you hurt. Or killed. I really loved you. And I still do.
Brayden: I guess you fucked that up then, huh?

It always comes down to me, my family, and a gun.


Dru: Hey, tell me you didn't do nothing stupid. Where's Ramirez, Cane?
Cane: He's where he needs to be.
Dru: You are dumber than I thought.

Everett: Are they going to get in trouble? Zeke, I mean.
Jabari: Look, we're just trying to get to the bottom of this, okay. Zeke's gonna be fine.

Now we good. Bitch.

Monet [to Rico]

Davis [to Tasha]

Lauren: Your mom doesn't deserve to be in jail, I know that. But murderers and drug dealers, they do.
Tariq: Just leave me alone, alright?

Let me tell you something. If you wanna keep your job, I suggest you keep your fucking mouth shut about whatever you think you know. And if Zeke gets in trouble for this swimming pool shit, your name will be the first name out of my mouth. You understand me?

Monet [to Carrie]

Paula: Well, even if Tariq is lying about his grandma, instead of gaming him let's find out why he needs the money.
Davis: Long as I get mine, that's all that matters.

Tameka: Tariq, did you kill your father?
Tariq: Yes. I did. Not because I'm a monster. Because he was a monster.
