Some funny quotes:
Ruby: 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: There are certain trailblazing cultural icons that every black person should know: Obama, Tupac, Dave Chappelle. Hell I’d say Dr. King’s near the top of that list wouldn’t you?
Rainbow: Maybe even above Dave Chappelle.
Zoey: I think this cow died of natural causes.
Junior: Oh, I get it. They charge you for all you can eat but put out food no one will eat, maniacal!
Diane: Why is there a plastic roof all over the food?
Dre: Baby that’s a sneeze guard, it’s to protect the food.
Jack: From getting into our mouths?
Rainbow: Oh really? Oh I see, it takes you two hours to find a little black boy, and then you’re here in two seconds when I accidentally steal a clutch? Well you know what? I’m keeping it!
Mr. Stevens: HR says if I occasionally ask about your personal lives it reduces the risk of an office shooting.
