I'm feeling a little spare tire.

Get your hoops on tonight.

- For... For real, you feel...

- Yeah.

- You don't... You...

- I'll see you later, okay?

Good morning.

You've been holding out on me,


- What?

- You didn't tell me you was...

...taking Oprah and Stedman

out to look at houses.

Oh, hush, girl,

that's Mr. And Mrs. Reid.

He's a federal judge

and she's a chichi art dealer.

They're looking to get

into a new zip code.

Well, you are already

Salesperson of the Year.

How come you can't throw

your girl charity...

...and help me meet

my quota for the month?

Because, sister girl, that's not how

I got to be Salesperson of the Year.

When you live the life,

you pay the price.

And these bills

are about to strangle me.

What about Dave?

Go make that money, girl.

Sorry I asked.

Hey, Eminem, Eminem,

you wanna turn that down a little bit?

Sorry, man.

Give my neighbors a heart attack.

You guys think I'm getting fat?

- You what?

- What did you say?

Yeah, Reesie says

it looks like I'm gaining weight.

If she's says it's your ass, yes.

Yes, your ass did get bigger.

Not looking at my ass, are you?

If I am looking at your ass right now,

I got good reason to.

Since Vanessa got pregnant,

she won't let me see her naked.

So ass is an ass right now.

I can't wait to play ball today.

I'm giving everybody a good play.

Speaking of big asses,

how did that disposition thing go...

...with your divorce attorney?

- You mean, deposition, Tree?

- Depo... That's what I said.

- Yeah, right.

- What did I say?

- You said disposition.

- All right, I'm sorry, human thesaurus.

- How did your deposition go?

- Oh, man, it's ridiculous.

I'm a dead man.

Fiona's gonna try to take everything.

My house, this car, half my salary.

That is ridiculous, man.
