Ciel:
[while sobbing intensely] I ain't got nothing to live for, Mattie!



Mattie Michael:
[wraps arms around Ciel] That ain't true, baby. You got youself. You got yourself.

Mattie Michael:
[referring to Etta's Mae's flirtation with Reverend Woods] If you had batted your eyelashes any faster, we'd have had a dust storm up in there.



Etta Mae:
You said you wanted me to meet some nice men. Well, I met one.



Mattie Michael:
Etta, I meant a man who'd be serious about settling down with you. Why, you're going on like a schoolgirl. Can't you see what he's got in mind?



Etta Mae:
[in a cold yet angry tone] The only thing I see is that you're telling me I'm not good enough for a man like that. Oh, no, not Etta Johnson. No upstanding decent man could ever see anything in her but a quick good time. Well, I'll tell you something Mattie Michael. I've always traveled first class, maybe not in the way you'd approve of with all your fine Christian principles, but it's done all right by me. And I'm gonna keep top drawer till I leave this earth. Don't you think I got a mirror? Each year there's a new line to cover. I lay down with this body and get up with it every morning. And each morning it cries for just a little more rest than it did the day before. Well, I'm finally gonna get that rest and it's going to be with a man like Reverend Woods. And you and the rest of those slack-mouthed gossips be damned! They'll be humming a different tune when I show up there the wife of a big preacher. I've always known what they say about me behind my back, but I never thought you were right in there with them.

Etta Mae:
[re babies] All yours. Built-in heartache for the next twenty years!



Mattie Michael:
[reprovingly] Etta...



Etta Mae:
Now me, when I want ready-made trouble, I dig up a handsome man. No diapers to change, and I walk when I'm ready.

Fannie Michael:
[having grabbed a shotgun after witnessing her husband beat Mattie] So help me Jesus, Sam! Hit my child again, and I'll meet you soul in hell!

Mattie Michael:
Ain't that the story. Colored folks try to do a little something, somebody come along and throw up a wall.



Kiswana:
Well, why don't you do something about it?



Mattie Michael:
What I'm supposed to do? I could tear down this wall with my bare hands; they'd just send somebody in the next day to put it up again.



Kiswana:
But at least you would have done something!



Mattie Michael:
Ain't no use. You're young. You'll see what I mean.



Kiswana:
No, I won't. That's the difference between you and me.
