Rick: Why do these guys have to be black? No matter how we spin this thing, I'm either gonna lose the black vote or I'm gonna lose the law and order vote!
Karen: You know, I think you're worrying too much. You have a lot of support in the black community.
Rick: All right. if we can't duck this thing, we're gonna have to neutralize it. What we need is a picture of me pinning a medal on a black man. The firefighter - the one that saved the camp or something - Northridge... what's his name?
Bruce: He's Iraqi.
Rick: He's Iraqi? He looks black.
Bruce: He's dark-skinned, sir, but he's Iraqi, his name's Saddam Hassif.
Rick: His name's Saddam? Oh, that's great, Bruce. Yeah, I'm gonna pin a medal on an Iraqi named Saddam. Give yourself a raise, won't you?

It's just black people demeaning other black people, using that word over and over. You ever hear white people callin' each other "honky" all the time? "Hey, honky, how's work?" "Not bad, cracker, we're diversifying!"


They think we're Arab. When did Persian become Arab?


It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.


Frankie Ballenbacher: "Have got it under control."
Susan Hartunian: Have got it under control.

No matter where you go... No matter what you do... I will hunt you down. I will hunt you down and when I find you, I'm gonna cut you open and eat your mother fucking heart!
