I've got a point I'd like to make.

What else is new?

No, this is important.

Got an announcement.

Getting another grandchild.

That's right. Your precious daughter's

got herself knocked up again.

- Oh, honey, no.

- Yeah.

And the guy's kicked me to the curb again,

saying it's not his,

when I know for a fact

it absolutely is his.

You're an embarrassment.

That's right.

That's right.

Walk away.

Just like they did.

I'm sorry, Mother.

- You wanna tell me what happened?

- I don't know. Condom broke?

You sure you wanna keep it?

I mean, I can take care of Pup,

and you know how he loves little Bill,

and hopefully he'll come around.

He's right.

I got a law degree and no job,

and a kid and no husband.

The only thing I do have is judgment.

I get plenty of that.

Maddy, you made a couple of mistakes,

that's all.

You know, I see these housewives

in their identical homes

with their identical lives, and...

They disgust me, but sometimes I...

I wish I could be like that,

wish I could live like that.

But I can't.

I don't know what to tell you.

Mom, just lie to me.

- Tell me everything's gonna be all right.

- Oh...

Well, I could be a secretary.

Telephone operator.

You could sell Avon like Ms. Wright.

We're just too damn smart for these hicks.

- We will fight!

- What's going on?

I'll bet they're going

to the White Tower restaurant.


Well, Billy Boy...

not all people are treated the same

in this world.

Because they're non...

- Noncon...

- Nonconformist?

- Yeah.

- Well, you could say that, I guess.

White Tower won't serve Negroes...

so they're protesting.

And if they protest, will that make

the White Tower serve them?

No, the owners of that place

are damn racists.

Makes me so mad.

I bet they call themselves
