Episode Quotes
Van: Bottom line,... my dad's going straight.
Billie: Whacha gonna do if he doesn't stay straight?
Van: Kill him.

Ray Ray: Poor Etobi, a couple of his couriers got grabbed at LAX carrying phony passports and heroin butt balloons.

(To his father after finding out he was counterfeiting again.)
Van: I should have let Etobi blow your ass away.

(While riding in dead silence with Van and Ray Ray to the exchange/bust.)
Deaq: You have no idea how tight you guys got my butt cheeks right now.

Ray Ray: The best thing about screwing a guy is letting him know you screwed him.

Deaq: I'm kicking your daddy's ass.
Van: I thought you were his biggest fan.
Deaq: Ya, that's 'til he boned us, Van.

Van: Let's take a ride to Vegas.
Deaq: Always bet on black.

Episode Goofs
While Diamond is chasing Van and Ray Ray's cars in the bed of the truck, that truck is struck numerous times and he never falls off. Those impacts would have tossed him from the truck.

Cultural References
Diamond: I never though no partners with 9's would turn this into an East Side/West Side thing.

This is reference to the two factions of the hip-hop industry from either coasts of the U.S. that has caused numerous shootings and have been thought to be the cause of the murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.

Deaq: This is like the unretiring of MJ, only good.

MJ, or Michael Jordan, came back to professional basketball for the third time with the Washington Wizards for a lackluster end of his career. Many thought he should have just stayed retired and not hurt his legacy.
