“I had a weird dream.  I was swimming in this pool, but it was like the ocean and I was swimming with the seaweed, but it wasn’t seaweed, it was, like, hands.  And I was swimming with this girl.  And she was saying if the hands grab you, they pull you down and drown you, so swim above them.  I know.  I think it’s about society, ’cause, like– I don’t know.  She was fat.  And not interesting.  You jealous?  I never said we were making out.  Yeah.  Yeah, we were.” — Earnest Marks

Quote1No, you don’t know me.  What?  Oh, I love it.  What is that?  Curry?  Like a very deep curry?  Ooh, I like that.  I love that.  I don’t care.  ‘Cause you always say that, and I’m always, like, ‘of course.’  I love you.Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“Uh-oh.  She’s awake.  She’s gonna kill us all with her cuteness.  Hey, there.  Of course I did.  I did not.  I promise she won’t be at my parents’ house.  I’ll pick her up after work.  I’ll get it to you tonight.  What time are you coming back?  11:00?  11:00’s a little late.  You, uh, taking the parents to Magic City’s?  Follies?  You know, Cheetahs is actually a better spot for that.  You’re with daddy tonight.  Mommy’s going on a date with some corny dude.  Yeah, some corny dude.  What?  No, this is a great environment for you.”

Quote1Your peephole’s for real.  Thanks.  So, Zoo Tycoon– what?  No.  This morning.  No, it’d be gross if I was trying to smash.  I don’t want a handout, I want to manage you.  ‘Manus,’ Latin for hand.  My lane?  Didn’t they kill Malcolm, too?  That’s how funerals work.  Alfred, you already Malcolm, okay?  You have that already.  What you really need is a silent wild card, somebody who’s about the money, the opportunity, who can play both sides if needed.  Oh, like Don Lemon.Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“No.  I’m doing business.  I guess.  I really think you don’t.  Look, man, is there somewhere we can talk for real?  ‘Cause… I’m sorry, who is this dude?  No, yeah, I remember who you are.  Look, I’m not asking for money.  Not real homeless.  I’m not using a rat as a phone or something.  Is he your manager?  This isn’t about rap.  If we do this right, your kids can live good, my kids can live good, Darius’s kids.  I’m sure I’ll find out why when the time’s right.  Right now, apparently.  Look, I’m not dumb.  You’re older, you have no real fan base.  You’re not white and/or selling sex.  I got the concept.  Okay, 28 tracks?  Lot of skits.  I’d cut ’em.  I’d still cut ’em.  I still know people at Diamond House.  Promoters.  People who manage big time artists now, man.  Nigga, I’m trying to help you.” — Earnest Marks

Quote1What’s up, dude?  Yo.  Good.  No.  How are you?  Uh, yeah, I’ve been low-key, man.  No!  You actually said that?  Cool.  You know that song ‘Paper Boy?’  Y’all should play it.  Yeah.  You guys should really play it.  Well, slide it past him.  How much?  $500?  Am I buying the station?  then introduce me.  I’m not every dude.  Look, I don’t have $500.  I make 5.15, plus commission.  I got to pay rent tonight and my parents won’t let me in the house.  It’s like those drug commercials, only not funny.  Then what’s in it for you?  Why am I so lucky?  What’s your cut?  Hey.  That guy ever say nigga around you?  Right.  Hey, um… what’s your name?  For real?  Hey, how late are you here tonight?Quote2 — Earnest Marks

Quote1Hello?  Hear what?  Wow.  That was quick.  Like you would with a manager?  Yeah.  Ah.  You found us.  ‘Sup?  It’s all about who you know.  I knew somebody.  Can’t be that pissed– they’re playing this on the radio right now.  Hey, man, this is Dave.  He works at 106.5.  He likes your stuff, so he’s got good taste.  Actually, to a fault.  Yo, tell them that Flo Rida story.  It’s so funny.  Yo, tell them.  Yeah, I don’t know.  Say hello to KP for me.  It’s a good song, man.  Don’t mess with the money.  Alfred!  Hey, man!  God damnit.  Hey, hey!Quote2 — Earnest Marks

Quote1Hey, Van, um… I know you’re probably mad at me.  I know you probably think I’m pretty irresponsible, but, um…I’m working on something that I think could be really big for me.  And you… too.  Yeah, I can explain all of it when I get home.  Also, I was thinking maybe you could bail me out?Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“But… you have to sleep.  Everybody– everybody has always slept.  Um… that’s messed up.” — Earnest Marks

Quote1Nah, this is all you.  He’s in here every week?  Why is he in here every week?  He looks like he needs help.  I can move, if you want.  No, I– no problem.  I can move, if you want– nah.  No, I– sexuality is a spectrum.  You can really do whatever you want.  I’m not– I’m trying– no, man, I’m just sitting here.Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“I’m him.  Thanks for bailing me out.  Hey, mama.  She won’t remember this.  It’ll be like… ‘hey, remember that time we had to pick up daddy from jail?  Me neither, ’cause I’m a baby and I don’t remember anything.  And my brain isn’t developed yet.’  I know.” — Earnest Marks

Quote1Um, can I get a kid’s meal?  Can I get a kid’s meal?  Can I get a kid’s meal?  Yeah, I don’t have a kid with me.  I’m gonna eat it.  That’s not true.  I know that’s not true.  So a kid has to wait in line and order a kid’s meal.  A kid can’t get an adult meal?  Look, you don’t have to be a kid to get a kid’s meal, okay?  Do you have to be Evander Holyfield to get the champ?  Okay, do you have to be fucking Chubby Checker to get the Chubby Decker?  Do you need to have a long foot to– that one doesn’t translate, but you know– this is ridiculous, okay?  Can I just please get a kid’s mean?  Can I get a cup of water?  Thank you.Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“We need to get a new revenue system.  I’m getting paid direct deposit tomorrow, but it’s not gonna be a lot.  I barely signed anyone at the airport.  Yeah.  How do you make money?  Yeah, but, you know, you’re more famous now.  Your profile’s risen, which means more risk, you know?  You can’t go to jail, man.  Out where?  Yeah, well just– just try not to die.” — Earnest Marks

Quote1I’ve been inconsiderate.  I get it.  I’m sorry.Quote2 — Earnest Marks

“I know I have a daughter.  And I know she deserves the best.  But I don’t think I have to compromise what I want out of life to do that.  Especially if I think it’s gonna provide for her.  You know me, Van.  I can do this.  I just gotta do it my way.  And if you can’t do this out of love for me… do this out of love for her.” — Earnest Marks

“Hold on, hold on, man, I’m getting crazy déjà vu right now.  Okay, where’s the dog with the Texas on him?  Oh, there he is.  That’s a trip, man.  This is so weird, man.” — Darius

“Hey, is this milk any good?  What you using it for?  Yeah, no, man, don’t use that to drink.  Cookie?  Oh, no, they say that.  But ain’t nobody seen the body since the funeral.” — Darius

“VH1 is hiring interns.  And that sound like a joke, but they actually, they tweeted that this morning.  Darius, man.  When you first walked in; I gave you cookie.  Wait, wait, not if it worked, man.  No, if you could use a rat as a phone, man, that’d be genius.  I mean, there’s like five rats for every one person in New York alone.  Everybody would have an affordable phone.  Yeah, man, I mean, it’d be messy, but… worth it.  Yeah, man, rap is D-E-D.  Ded.  I can’t have kids.  When is an appropriate time to talk about my balls getting smashed?  Yeah.  Uh.  No, but his is different.” — Darius

“I don’t know why we ordered our food to go.  Should’ve just ate it here.  Us humans are always close to destruction.  Life itself is but a series of close calls.  I mean, how would you know you were alive unless you knew you could die?  Oh, my God.  Yo, you got that juice, baby!  No.” — Darius

“Hey.  Hey, brother.  Uh, ‘XXL’ just picked up your story.  And… oh, it look like ‘Complex’ got you as song of the month, brother.  Yeah.  Man, that don’t sound like you think it’s cool.  We should go out.  Them crazy girls that be over at Edgewood, man, they– they love a thug.  You gonna clean it all up.  Well, yo, maybe we could go shoot some pool, all right?  They cool up there.  Plus, you know, you could talk to that little waitress, you know, with the hair thing going on.  Yeah, buddy.  Oh.  Hey, bro.  I got a google alert set up on you, and it look like ‘Vibe’ wrote one.  It says… ‘Is Paper Boi Atlanta’s Tupac?’  They said no.  But, apparently, John Boyega is the new Magic Johnson.  Huh.” — Darius

“Oh, my God.  Why are you up?  Hmm.  That’s deep.  Who’s the girl?  What she look like?  Okay.  I’m disappointed in your story, ’cause you’re first saying that she’s fat and annoying, and then you all of a sudden turn around and you’re making out with this bitch.  Were you making out?  Oh, man.” — Vanessa Keifer

“I know you.  Mmm–oh, no.  My breath.  Are you kidding me?  That is not–that’s, like, some freaky shit.  What are you– you’re so stupid.  Mm.  Tell me you love me.  Why did you just laugh?  Then why don’t you just say ‘I love you?’  You remember you have Lottie tonight, right?  ‘Cause I have parent teacher conferences.  also, I don’t always want her at your parents’ house.  She lives here.  And if you’re gonna be staying here, I’m gonna need your help with rent.  I don’t know, probably like 11:00?  I have a date.” — Vanessa Keifer

“The bottle?  Thank you.  Idiot.” — Vanessa Keifer

“Hey, what’s up?  All right, honey, time to go to bed.  No, don’t get up. I wouldn’t want you to have to pick up Lottie and ruin all that you’re doing.  Honey, is it really that hard to help me out every once in a while?  I even have to take her to your parents’ place myself.  Really, Earn?  Please, you really think you’re the first boy I’ve bailed out of jail?  Yeah?  You smell like work.  What is that?  Kush?   Nigga, don’t.  No, you roll your eyes at me and you call me crazy any time I try to tell you something.  I guess that’s just me, right?  I’m crazy-ass Vanessa.  Whatever.  No, it’s too late.  Yeah, you messed up.  You know what?  You’re lucky that I like corny-ass dudes.  Mm-hmm.  Talking about you.  Why are you always turning me into the angry black woman?  Are you kidding me?  I’m the stereotype?  While your ass, you can’t even take care of your own goddamn kid?  Really?  I don’t know about all that.  You like it.” — Vanessa Keifer
