Ike, Sr.: Hey, Anna Mae. Where you going? I need to get some sleep!
Tina: Go straight to hell, Ike!

Ike, Sr.: Eat the cake, Anna Mae.

Tina: I'm ready. I'm ready and I know what I want.

Ike, Sr.: Now, you listen to me. I MADE you. You were nothing before you met me, and you'll be nothing without me.

Grandma Georgiana: Your mama had to go away for a while.
Young Anna Mae: When is she coming back to get me?
Grandma Georgiana: She ain't, honey. She just ain't.

Jackie: [to Anna Mae] Lorraine was Ike's last gig. He's always booking ahead. Now, you watch yourself.

Zelma: Now, Anne Mae. I know I wasn't around. But believe me, you were too young to know what was going on with your daddy and me.
Tina: Did Alline understand? She ain't that much older than me.
Zelma: Now, don't think you're going to come live in my house and make me feel bad.

Judge: I want you to be very sure about this. This means you're going to walk out of here with absolutely nothing.
Tina: Except my name. I'll give up all that other stuff, but only if I get to keep my name. I've worked too hard for it, your honor.
Ike, Sr.: The name is mine. The name got my daddy's blood on it. If she want to go, she can go wherever she want to go, but the name stays home!
