You good?

I'm fine.

Girls, what're you doing?



Y'all don't

belong on this block.

Yo, take her bike.

Drop that high yellow heifer.

We don't want any trouble.

What the hell?



Oh, nice.

Right in your face.

Your mom still in

the nuthouse, Sweetie?

Easy, man.

Let us go.

Nah, it's too late for that.

If you want your bike back,

you'll have to re-earn it.

Yeah, make them re-earn it.

We're gonna have us a race.

You beat his boys to that tree

and we're through.

You won't have to walk

18 blocks out of your way

in the morning

no more neither.

Stop ducking corners,

hiding and crawling and shit.

If not, the bike

will be ours.

I ain't racing for something my parents

bought me in the first place.

"Something my parents bought me

in the first place."

Bitch, please.

Then why don't you go on

with your dang bike?

We can beat Hi'Low and Lil' Man

on our slowest day.

Yo, on your mark?

Latonya, let Betty go home.

You get a 60-second lead.


Just keep on running,

all the way home.


Get her!

Get her!

Two Dog, stop!

Stop kicking her now!

Stop kicking...


You like picking on girls?



Yo, someone,

can you just do something?


Stop it.

He's had enough!

You dare jump

my little sister?

Somebody help him!

Come on, Ola. Let's go.

No. No!

Let me go, Roland! F*cking...

It's time to go. Come on.


Come on.

Let me...

You all right, Sweetness?


All right, I got a half grilled cheese

and a little cabbage soup.

Here we go.

It's not too hot,

it's not too cold.

Come here.


I got the Daily Double.

You did?

None of the contestants.

Hey, girls.

Who's hungry?

Hi. There's some hot soup

on the stove.

I'm hungry!

Thanks, Dad.

Hello, Mom.

What's up?

Mama, Ola said hi.

And Daddy said,

"What's up?"


My girls are home.

Hi, Mama.

Yankees take it or no?

You bet.


What's up?


you want some more?

Looks good, honey.

# My name is Sweetness


All right! All right.

# My name is Sweetness

# Don't underestimate the 'cause you need this #

It's already been handled.

I know.

Well, I'm sorry.

You know.

I'm gonna get

some money soon.

I know.




Come on, baby, what did you do

with my watch?


You told me you

sold it, remember?

If I f*cking remembered,

I wouldn't have f*cking asked.

Every single f*cking time.

Rene, come on.

Ah, honey, come...

Honey, come on. I'm sorry.

Rene, I'm sorry, baby.


Come on. I'm kidding.

How come he doesn't just

stay wherever it is he goes?

Can you do me a favor?

Could you go get my pocketbook off

the shelf and bring it here?


Can you do that

for me, Sweetie?

Lorene, where are you?

Lorene, come on.

Come on, Lorene. What...

F*cking counters...

Are you there?

Toss it to me.

Stay inside.

Are you coming back?

Of course I am.

Come on, Rene!

Lorene, come on.


Where the...

What the f*ck?

Everyone's f*cking gone.

I can't be bothered with this

piece of f*cking shit.

He sounds like

he's underwater.

I wish he was.



Bong! Bong! Bong!

Stop it!

Bong! Bong! Bong!

You gonna draw

attention to us. Stop it.

Oh, shit!

You dropped one.

Help me.

Get out of here, go.

Totally better.





Just personalize

the language.

For instance, if Betty was

running 60 miles an hour,

carrying four book bags

at 120-knots winds,

when will Betty get home?


Okay, I get it. Yeah.

What's with the jacket, night and day,

in the f*cking house, Ola?

I'm cold.
