''Not nice''? Get--

l'm gonna tell you

what's not nice.

lt's Malcolm King forcing me

to hire another one...

of his incompetent little

hoochies as my assistant.

l know.

l can't stand Malcolm King...

and King Enterprises.

But if l wasn't a lock

for that V.P. position...

l would be out of here so fast.

-Oh, l know.

-l deserve the promotion anyway.

l've been doing the damn job

for the past few months.

l've got a master's degree

from Yale.


-And 10 years of experience.

l just got

the car of my dreams...

l closed escrow

on a pretty three-bedroom.

l mean, my apartment

is packed up already.

l've got to get that promotion.

Do you want me

to say a prayer for you?

Not now.

l don't want you to take this

the wrong way...


But ever since you got saved...

you've been a little...

extra with the God stuff.



-My Jesus piece?


l just got it.

lt's great, right?

Why is this happening?

Guys, scram!

Peaches, don't you have

some work to do?

l finished my coloring.

Marco, take my coat.

Take my coat.

Yeah, you did

a good job on this, man...

but l think

you need to get the back.



That's a nice ride

you got there.

What does the ''King'' stand for?

That's my last name.

Ah, really?

So, what's your first name?



Corey, get up here!

Coming, Granny.

$300, and you got

all those wonderful things.

And l'm going to show you...

Make yourself useful.

Go pick me up a pack of smokes.

Hand me my massage pillow,

will you?

Right now, tonight.

But now we've got

to get two traders...

who will risk what

they've already won...

Here you go. OK?

...sofa and color TV

worth 2,190...

and they're ready to go.


What's the matter, big brother?

Ain't you glad to see me?

Yeah. No!
