Episode Notes
Charlie Murphy is credited as Charles Q. Murphy.

In the comic strip, Riley had an afro, much shorter than Huey's, but long enough for braids. Since he had braids in the show, a story line was created in the comics showcasing Riley's attempts to get cornrolls.



Episode Quotes
Huey Freeman: Jesus was black, Ronald Reagan was the devil, and the government is lying about 9/11. Thank you and goodnight.
Woman: This can't be!

Huey: You can force me to go to the party, but you can't force me to be someone I'm not!
Granddad: The hell I can't! You gonna go, and you not gonna embarrass me in front of my rich neighbors, or I'm gonna beat your ass!

Huey: I hate this place, but I don't want Granddad to lose his house.
Riley: Oh well. I shot a nigga!

Granddad: Y'all need to start appreciating your Grandaddy! I went and spent your inheritance on this beautiful house in this neighborhood! And all I ask you to do is act like you got some class...
Riley: Ay, what's "class"?
Huey: It means don't act like niggas.
Granddad: See! That's what I'm talking about right there! We don't use the n-word in this house!
Huey: Granddad, you said the word "nigga" 46 times yesterday. I counted.
Granddad: Nigga, hush!

Young Granddad: Damn. What's eating you?
Activist: A goddamn German Shepard. That's what's eating me! Where was you?
Young Granddad: I went back to the apartment to get a raincoat.
Activist: This nigga went to get a mother f**king raincoat.

Young Granddad: We all been watchin' the same news. I just assumed we'd all wear our raincoat.
Activist: Dammit, Robert. Who the hell shows up to a march with a mutha f*ckin' raincoat?
Young Granddad: Bet you wish you had your raincoat right now.
Activist: You son of a--

Granddad: So I understand you just got back from Iraq?
Riley: Fo' real? Yo, what was it like?
Ed III: What was it like? What I'm 'possed to say to that. It was cool? There was bitches? Okay, there was bitches, but a lot of them was covered up in them curtains and sh*t. But I digress. It was war. It was war basically. It was war. You know what that's like? Mu' f*cka, its like shootin' ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka! Bombs blowin' up. And you know that sh*t scary. It scared the sh*t out of me. Matta fact, I sh*tted on myself over a dozen times, and ran out of toilet paper after the second time. So you know what that meant, right? I had to use the thumb. It was kinda nasty. But the good thing was that they stopped taking me out on missions because my name became "Stink-Bomb." You know, they said I was giving away our position 'cause of the sh*t smell. That was fine with me. Th-they wanted to leave me back, and I was like f*ck ya'll! I don't need ya'll anyway! I'm rich, bitch! 'The f*ck ya'll lookin' at?!

Ed Wuncler: Look at the look on that guy's face. Looks like he jacks-off with Icy-Hot!
(Granddad and Ed Wuncler laugh)

Uncle Ruckus: Hello, this is Uncle Ruckus, no relation. I'd like to sing ya'll a song I just wrote called "Don't Let Them New Niggas Over There." Sing along if you know the words.

White Woman: (whispering) I think the n-word is okay as long as they say it.
(begins clapping, then the rest of the crowd joins her)

Ed Wuncler: In thirty years, my grandson will be the president of the United States. . .and he'll still be a f*ckin' idiot.

Riley: I know about white people, too. When they talk, they say the whooollleeeee wooooorrrdddd, lllliiikkkkee thisss.



Cultural References
Ed Wuncler III is a spoof of President Bush being young, rich, and getting back from war. His grandfather even says he'll be president some day.

Ed III: I'm rich, bitch!

This is reference to The Chappelle Show, in which Dave Chappelle plays Rick James, and says that very line, and Charlie Murphy, the voice of Ed III, plays himself in a re-enactment of Charlie's experience with Rick James.

Riley: Say hello to my little friend!

This is a famous line from the movie Scarface.
