- Don't play with me.

- I ain't playin' with you.

Chill it out. It's nothin' immediate.

- But I'm definitely down for hookin'

my girl up. - All right.

That's a real sacrifice-you givin' up

your studio for your husband's career.

You're so old-fashioned.

Well, I love my husband.

And, Zahara, he's worth it.

- What's up, baby?

- Dog! You see there?

All men are dogs.

All they need are fleas.

And I met one last week

who had some.

So tell me about

Mercy Baptist, girl.

Oh, it's a nice church.

Reverend Dunn and his wife, they don't

just talk the talk. They walk the walk.

They feed homeless folks,

teach H.I. V. prevention.

- Monday nights-women's group. Fabulous.

You must join us. - I'll be there.

Now, Reverend Dunn starts

Sunday services at 10:00 a.m. sharp.

So none of that Delta C.T.P. time.

No. C.P. time.

And you can't say it right

'cause you're wrong.

You never would've made it to class

on time if it weren't for me.

- Whatever, Miss Delta.

- That's right, "crimson and cream'"baby.

Uh-uh. Pink and green-girls with the pearls.

- Dog!

- Girl, he didn't say nothin' to you.

He was thinkin' 'bout it.

For Dutch...

the move from Atlanta

was no big deal.

You know,

he grew up in Philadelphia.

But for me...

it was a place where all

our dreams would come true.

It never occurred to me

that nightmares are dreams too.

"'W hat do we have here? '

snarled the huge wolf."

- Not good enough.

- What?

- I'm warning you.

- Mm-mmm.

Come on. " 'W hat do we have here? '

snarled the huge wolf."

Not good enough.

- I think we need to-

- Yeah.

One, two-

- What? Come on.

- three!

Come on.

I put the gun in my mouth.

I started to... pull the trigger.

I saw my daughter's face... crying.

Then I realized...

how selfish I was being.
