Rainbow to Andre, when she's accused of not being "Black enough": "If I'm not Black, could somebody please tell my hair and my ass?"


Andre' Jr, aka "Andy," to his dad, about his name change and his sport of choice: "[Andy] says I'm edgy, but approachable."

Andre: "I think it says " I hate my father and I play field hockey.'"


Pops Johnson: "I feel a group hug coming. I'm goin' to the track."

Andre to Andre Jr; "I'm a little too bloated to go shirtless right now."


Andre.: "Cuz two shirtless dudes just standing around talking about sex starts to look weird after awhile."

Andre Jr.:"Oh, wait, Dad just one more thing..."

Andre (thought): "Please barbell, just slip and fall on my throat."


Andre Jr. to Andre: "You know who really gets me there? Helen Mirren. Is that weird? I don't even care."



Honestly, I think I could quote this entire show...

I think that this episode ("The Nod") was chock-full of quotes.


Zoe: I'm cool. Plus I'm black. Which is cool, so I win twice. 


Dre and Bow's exchange about the Leimert Park social club that includes gardening--


Bow: Look! Black people gardening. When was the last time you saw that?

Dre: You mean, besides our nation's 400 years of non-consensual gardening?


Pops: Something wrong with yo' neck, boy?!


Pops: Think of the boy as a piece of salmon, and your club the skillet.


Dre: Are we talking raw uncut Biggie-black, or low-cal Drake black?


Andre and his new friend: Yasss, Gaga, yasss! (I have no idea what that means, but it made me die.)

"What about him?"

"He's Filipino."

"I'm sure that's what his mother tells him."



"Nothing weird. No, Nothing weird. Just looking for some young black boys to bring back to my house."



"Can I curse? Damn!"

Diane: "Optimistic." 


Dre: " To Junior, 'Nerd' is the new Black."

"You're selling me out?!"

"We're not exactly selling you out. We created an algorithm to reduce collateral damage"

"What does that mean?"

"We're selling you out."

"Even you, Diane? You're my twin!"

"Look Friend, we're not identical"



I. Died.

Dre (about Jack): "He was so cute, so full of promise. He was my favorite!"


It's not so much what he said but the priceless ensuing looks/side eye that all the kids gave him that cracked me up (especially Andre Jr.). Plus knowing Jack is also the favorite among Dre's coworkers added another dimension of hilarity. The little guy is indeed adorable!

Bow (to the security guards, after finding Jack): "It takes you two hours to find a little Black boy and you're on me in two seconds for accidentally stealing a clutch? You know what, I'm keeping it! [Walking away with clutch]. I'm keeping it!"

Jack: I don't want to go blind and lose my feet!

Dre: And you wouldn't lose both feet, just one at a time.


Rainbow: Why do you have a camera in the refrigerator?

Dre: To see what's in there to determine if I'm going to go downstairs or not.


Dre: The family that pranks together stays together.

Chris: Wait, Dre, I think it's "prays."


Dre: Josh - not my favorite guy, mostly because he's always asking me if I know Jay-Z.


Josh: I know bros aren't exactly into pranks. Bros tend to be a little touchy about being startled.

Dre: I think they're startled at the comfort level with which you use the word "bro."


Charlie: Did I look scared?
Dre: Yeah. Weren't you?

Charlie: No, man. I knew he was in there. I wasn't going to waste an opportunity to sock that dude.

Dre: Charlie, why did you do that?

Charlie: Because it's hilarious!


Dre: All black people don't know one another! Do you know RuPaul?

Charlie: Yeah, I do, actually.

Dre: Me too. Cool chick.


Stevens: Last night I received a very disturbing call at home during my Bones marathon. Dre, a member of your team assaulted a coworker?

Dre: Um, it was an accident.

Charlie: No, I jacked him up.

Dre: Dude, I'm trying to help you out here, okay? Relax.

Charlie: Joker jumped out on me.

Josh: It's my fault. I should have known. Microtargetting studies show that 84% of black men do not like being startled while the other 16% find it "messed up."

Dre: WHAT? Man, this is crazy.

Stevens: Guys, I love publicly humiliating an employee as much as the next guy, probably more, but the risk of litigation is just too great so from now on, Stevens Lido is a prank-free zone. That's it. No more. But you can still put stuff in people's yogurt cause that's just fun.


Dre: Damn it, Josh can't be right. Between the two of us, there has to be a black person we don't know. Dionne Warwick?

Chris: Wonderful woman, generous lover.

So, I kinda liked this exchange, though I wish they would've had Josh (and Dre) say "brothas" instead. My reasoning is only that I tend to associate the word "bro" with white frat boy types more than I do black men.

Jack, to Bow, after helping Dre prank her into thinking that he was cheating on her: "You thought Dad was blowing up your marriage!"


Dre, to Bow: "Your poker faces gives away more than an episode of 'Oprah's Favorite Things.'"

Dre: My point is the White House was just that - white. Until one man broke through and gave my people hope: Dennis Haysbert in 24.


Ruby: You know, Rainbow, you're too hard on the kids. If I didn't know you were mixed, I'd swear you were Chinese.

Rainbow: Ruby, that's racist!

Ruby: Black people can't be racist!

Dre: I was robbed by a damn Mexican!

Ruby: See? Totally acceptable.

Dre: I've got bad news.

Charlie: Kim Kardashian stopped messing with black guys?

Dre: Worse.

Josh: Zoe Saldana stopped messing with white guys?


Dre: Hey, middle aged Jimmy Neutron, I bet you only cost two packs of cigarettes in jail.

Charlie: Hey, Powder, how's that cadaver modeling going for you?

Dre: You so white you the light people see before they die.

Charlie: You so white Wayne Brady's jealous.

Dre: You so white you thought Malcolm X was a porno.

Charlie: You so white ghosts are scared of you.

Dre: I see pale people!


Dre: Bagging isn't bullying!


Jack: You were the first to talk, you were the first to ride a bike, you were the first to pee standing up.

Rainbow: Wait, what?


Dre: Just remember you have a choice. You can use your gift wisely or you can be like Darth Vader and go to the dark side.

Junior: Darth Vader didn't go to the dark side. It was actually Anakin who went to the dark side and became Darth Vader once he was there.

[Dre leaves]

Seriously, Deon's line reading on the "does the twin girl..." made me pause and laugh for way too long!


If the show was to get cancelled (not likely) I would watch a spin-off with the two of them; hopefully being thrown together to solve crimes!

Junior: "Guys, guess what? Auntie Rhonda... gay."

Zoe, Jack and Diane silently stare at Junior.

Jack: "So what else should I get mom?"

Diane: "Oh, now you want my help?"

Junior: "Why isn't anyone else surprised."

Jack: "Because we all knew."

Charlie: "I was the best man at my brother and his lifelong roommate's health insurance consolidation party."

Charlie: "I think my brother and his husband are gay."

Junior: "Auntie Sharon is gay too?"

Diane: "Unbelievable."

Dre: Take my baby sister Rhonda. She's gay. I think. She lives in a one bedroom apartment with her friend Sharon who's a mechanic and their cat Kitty Lang. So yeah, she's definitely gay.


Rainbow: Dre, Rhonda has been with Sharon for years. I can't believe your mom still thinks she's her roommate.

Dre: Well, technically they are roommates.

Bow: Well then technically we're roommates.


Diane: Dude, Auntie Rhonda lives in a one bedroom apartment with her girlfriend.

Junior: Since when is it gay to save money on rent?

Zoe, Jack, and Diane: WOW.


Zoe: Your gaydar is seriously broken.

Junior: What's gaydar?

Zoe: Dude, really? You can't even piece it together?

Diane: It's two words combined and one of them's radar.

Jack: Yeah, this is pretty basic stuff.

Junior: Oh my GAWD! I just got Hamburglar! Bromance! Chillax! Spanglish!


Dre: Bow doesn't think I'm close enough to my sister who's gay.

Charlie: Ohhhh. Been there. I got a brother. He's not gay or nothing. But we got our issues. Yet and still, I was the best man at he and his lifelong roommate Gustavo's health insurance consolidation party last summer on Fire Island.

Curtis: That sounds like a gay wedding.

Charlie: Whoa, watch your mouth there, youngster. That's my not gay brother you're talking about there.


Charlie: We don't rock the boat. Drowning is one of the worst deaths. It goes fire, drowning, then bees.


Bow: Erykah Ba-don't!


Todd: But let's talk about the actor who would play the burglar. Now is there any objection to him being a large African American man in an Obama mask?


Dre: I know I wasn't as supportive as I should have been about you going through your lesbianification.

Rhonda: No, Dre, no, see you can't just become lesbianified. You gotta be born lesbianic.

Dre: See? Thank you. Now I know the right words.
