"Good Times: No More Mr. Nice Guy (#5.13)" (1978)
Lavonne: [to Penny] Hey sweetie, what'd you do to get in here?
Millicent 'Penny' Woods: Well, Mama had to take her teeth to the dentist and I had to take my skates to the rink. So Michael and I went downstairs and Michael's friend Howard pulled up and said "Hop in", so we hopped. Then a policeman said, "pull over" so we pulled. Then he said, "you have the right to remain silent", so we remained silent. Those are the highlights, film at 11:00.

Millicent 'Penny' Woods: [to Lavonne] So, what are you in for?
Lavonne: I'm in because of my, uh, "social work."

Millicent 'Penny' Woods: [to Willona] Mama, can social workers be put in jail?
Willona Woods: Of course not, baby. Social workers do a lot of positive things in the community.
Millicent 'Penny' Woods: Oh.
[walks over to Lavonne]
Millicent 'Penny' Woods: My mama says that you can't go to jail for what you're doing, so keep up the good work.

Willona Woods: Penny, baby, we need that for evidence.
Millicent 'Penny' Woods: It doesn't matter!
[starts to cry]
Millicent 'Penny' Woods: No matter what the court says, no matter what she says, no matter what anyone says, I'll always be with you, Mama!
[hugs Willona]

Michael Evans: What happened to Mrs. Carpenter?
Millicent 'Penny' Gordon: I ditched her.
Michael Evans: How?
Millicent 'Penny' Gordon: Easy. When we were in the elevator I pressed the B button for basement, then I scooted out right before the doors closed. Mrs. Carpenter, she's a nice lady, but I don't want to go to a new home, I want to stay right here with you, J.J.
James 'J.J.' Evans, Jr.: Penny, I can't take care of you.
Millicent 'Penny' Gordon: I know, you're a lover, not a mother, but Willona, if you wouldn't mind having me, I'd love to stay with you.

[to Sweet Daddy's bodyguards]
Willona: Move goons!

Willona: Wha - what happened?
Penny: [turning around quickly] Uh, I fell, I always fall, my feet are all thumbs.
Willona: Baby, come here. Now I know you like to make up stories, but I need you to tell me the truth. Who gave you those bruises? Baby, who did those awful things to you?
Lenella Gordon: [enters and sees Penny's dress open] What's going on?
