Ma'am, were you aware that your car was on fire?
[Bernadine nods her head while smoking a cigarette]
Ma'am, did you start this fire?
[she puffs smoke and plainly looks at him]
You know, it's against the law to burn anything except trash in your yard.
[flicks off ashes from her cigarette]
It is trash.
Look, this is a nice area. Luckily, a neighbor cared enough. Listen, the next time you want to burn something...
It won't happen again.
[she shuts the door in his face]

I read some of the other comments comcerning this movie. And personally i thought that this movie was greatly misinterpreted. This movie (while have some "man-bashing" elements) is more about the friendship of four strong real black women who represent a little part of most women in society. I love this movie. I think that it has humor, depth, and presents a very real perspective on love and dating in today's world. And while men might take offense to the representation of the male gender in this movie, I think that it's important to realize that unfaithful, self-absorbed men do exist. However, as we must acknowledge the less moral men of our society, this movie also portrays that good decent men are not a figment of our imagination. With Wesley Snipes and Gregory Hines characters, we see that men are not all callous unfeeling creatures. So basically, I feel that this movie is one to be appreciated and enjoyed. (And in response to one respone that i read. . . One does not CHOOSE who they fall in love with, love just happens. We cannot choose who we love.) Anyways. . .i loved the part where she burned all the clothes too :)
