You're not talking

about being whipped.

Terry, we know you. You can't change.

What about when you talked

to the girl and her mom...

...and then they both found out?

- I remember that.

That was a long time ago.

I'm not like that anymore.

If you're changing, Terry,

I'm changing too.

- It's about time.

- As of now, I'm through with sisters.

That's a broken record, D.

I'm serious this time, man.

You know Carla, the judge?

She locked me up because

she's an evil, bitter, black woman.

Did you forget that you had sex

with her...

...dumped her and called her

a "bitch" in the courtroom?

What's your point, man?

Maybe she had other reasons

to do that.

The boy's ignorant.

All sisters bring drama. No matter

what you do, it ain't good enough.

I'm tired of the fake hair.

The "that's my baby's father."

The excess weight.

They're giving out government cheese

sandwiches with the fake hair.

- What does that tell you?

- That you're a dumb-ass.

You give up on sisters,

you give up on yourself.


- I think Brian may have a point.

- Thank you.

It's not colour,

but what's inside that counts.

Did your wife tell you that before

or after she unscrewed your dick.

Don't listen to him, D.

We're here, Jack.

No, we're not there. I'm not going

out on the sisters like you.

I haven't found the right one.

Gotta look harder.

See, now I can dig that.

Let's keep it real.

We're single, black, professional men.

- We're the cream of the crop.

- I'll keep it real for you.

We're the cream of the crop. You're

the shit on the bottom of the barrel.

We deserve the best, and now,

the sisters ain't up to the job.

You're wrong. When I met Sheila,

I snapped her up.

That and she got pregnant.

No, it didn't have nothing

to do with that.

We were gonna get married.
