Episode Quotes
Rick James: I wish I had more hands, so I could give those titties four thumbs down!

Real Rick James: See, I never just did things just to do them. Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody's couch like it's something to do? Come on. I got a little more sense then that.
Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Eddie's couch.

Charlie Murphy: Because of my complexion, he use to call me Darkness. He calls me and brother Darkness. The Darkness Brothers. See, this is long before Wesley Snipes. Back then... we was the blackest niggas on the planet according to Rick James.

Rick James: Fuck your couch, nigga. Fuck your couch. Darknesses! Darknesses!
