I’ll fight to the ends of the Earth, but I don’t know if this is the right way to do it. I don’t want Ralph Angel to hate me and more importantly, I don’t want Blue to resent me.

Nova: Look, I understand you all wanting to say something, I’ve been there, but we have to weigh the cost. I’m concerned that you destroyed a piece of history that’s taught generations about a resilient people.
Micah: That fire was a total accident.
Nova: It was a mistake, but what were your intentions.
Micah: To stop the tourists from mocking our people. To stop them from exploiting our history.

Davis: What makes you think he’ll listen to me?
Charley: You’ve made serious mistakes. I need you to make him see that some decisions, they can’t be undone.

Micah: What we did was right.
Charley: It was stupid.
Micah: Now I'm stupid.
Charley: No Micah, your actions were stupid because you knew better. I raised you better than that.

It’s like one minute Ralph Angel and I are these amazing parents and the next, I don’t know who we are.

Darla

Charley: Accident or not, you understand arson is a felony. You were trespassing and you were vandalizing.
Micah: We were protesting.
Charley: You could go to jail, Micah. Don’t you get that?

Nova: To be a negro in this country and to relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time. James Baldwin said that but he also followed that anger is wasted if it is not followed by action.
Micah: I tried to take action. I tried but I’m not you. I wish I was but I’m not.
Nova: And I don’t want you to be. It’s just that things didn’t go as planned. You can’t control results but we can be clear about our intentions.

Stop acting like you're woke just because you burnt down our ancestors home and you got your friend arrested.

Darlene: We can provide the best care, money, and stability that that child needs.
Violet: Like your daughter had. See, maybe if the mama ain't here one minute and gone the next Blue wouldn't be having these problems. Did you ever think about that?

[to Remy] What I feel for you is real but it's not worth the price it would take from those we love. I can feel that, can't you?

Nova

Colton: I'll give you half. Now, five percent's a lot.
Charley: Money laundering is a federal crime, Colton, and not only will you go to prison but the painstaking FBI searches and all of the investigations into your Daddy's company's finances, everything you've ever been a part of. He'll regret ever giving you a dime. I want it all. All ten percent. I'm not here to barter. You can take your Daddy down or I can take you down. Your choice.

[to Remy] What I feel for you is real but it's not worth the price it would take from those we love. I can feel that, can't you?

Nova

The players who got caught with the girl are just kids, coming straight out of high school. No home training, no life skills. We hand them millions of dollars and then say good luck. They marry riffraff. They live wild, now they're messing up our livelihood.
