Lenore: You both stop it! Now listen, I raised you all by myself. I was a single mother long before they were talking about it on Oprah Winfrey. And you! I waited for you for 13 years! And I had plenty of offers, let me tell you! I didn’t have to wait around with my tits on hold my entire life! Now you two learn to love each other! Right now!

Darius: The way I see it, chicks are the ones that want to go to outer space. That’s why they push it so hard. It’s like Adam and Eve. He was fine grooving in Paradise, but Eve wanted something scary. She wanted the fucking edge. She wanted to jump off cliffs just so she could see what it was like to fall.

Bob: Wait a minute, Ruth, where’re you going?
Ruth: I don’t know, Bob, into my future I guess.

Dido Elizabeth Belle: Elizabeth said something when we arrived in London. “We women are but the property of gentlemen.” But it came into my head that I have been blessed with freedom twice over. As a negro and as a woman.
John Davinier: I suppose you have.
Dido Elizabeth Belle: Or have I? Must not a lady marry even if she is financially secure? For who is she without a husband of consequence? It seems silly – like a free negro who begs for a master.
John Davinier: Well…unless… she marries her equal. Her true equal. A man who respects her.

Pat: Let me think how to put this. Motherhood doesn’t turn out to be a reason.
Eve: For what?
Pat: What I mean is, I’m not one of those women who needed to be a mother. When I was growing up, all the girls wanted to be, so I thought I did too. But it didn’t take. Just being honest.
Eve: Well. . .Thank you.
