Hustle & Flow (2005)
Key: Just because you got the bacon, lettuce, and tomato don't mean I'm gonna give you my toast.
Key: There are two types of people: those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk. People who walk the walk sometimes talk the talk but most times they don't talk at all, 'cause they walkin'. Now, people who talk the talk, when it comes time for them to walk the walk, you know what they do? They talk people like me into walkin' for them.
DJay: Who's this niggah?
Key: That's Shelby, he plays piano in my church. I thought he could help us develop your sound.
DJay: You know he's white, right?
Key: Naw, he just light-skinned.
DJay: See... man ain't like a dog. And when I say "man," I'm talking about man as in mankind, not man as in men. Because men, well, we a lot like a dog. You know, we like to piss on things. Sniff a bitch when we can. Even get a little pink hard-on the way they do. We territorial as shit, you know, we gonna protect our own. But man, he know about death. Got him a sense of history. Got religion. See... a dog, man, a dog don't know shit about no birthdays or Christmas or Easter bunny, none of that shit. And one day God gonna come calling, so you know, they going through life carefree. But people like you and me, man, we always guessing. Wondering, "What if?" You know what I mean? So when you say to me, "Hey, I don't think we should be doing this," I gotta say, baby, I don't think we should be doing this neither, but we ain't gonna get no move on in this world, lying around in the sun, licking our ass all day. I mean, we man. I mean, you a woman and all, but we man. So with this said, you tell me what it is you wanna do with your life.
Shelby: If you had to say something different other than "beat that bitch," what would it be?
DJay: I don't know. Shit. Stuff like, um... stomp that ho?
DJay: Skinny, man. Tell me this shit just fell out your pocket, right?
Nola: [crying] Do you know what I do in the back of them cars? Do you? Everybody's got something to do, every body's got something important going on in their lives but me, D! And I want something!
DJay: What do you want?
Nola: I don't really know, but I want something.
DJay: What... do you want?
Nola: I don't know.
DJay: Tell me what the fuck you wanna do, man!
Nola: Not this, D!
DJay: You in charge. Say it.
Nola: I'm in charge.
DJay: Say it like you mean it.
Nola: [after a pause] I'm in charge.
DJay: If I can pimp $20 ho's out the back of this motherfucking Chevy, I can pimp Skinny.
DJay: I'm here trying to squeeze a dollar out of a dime, and I ain't even got a cent man.
DJay: [at the end of the movie, when walking back to his cell] EVERYBODY GOT TO HAVE A DREAM.
Nola: D, I can tell when you're messing with my head, because I let you, because sometimes my head needs to be messed with. But right now, just don't. Okay?
Yevette: You wanna know what I'm feeling? I'm thrilled! Okay, thrilled. What woman wouldn't want her husband spending all day in a house full of hoes?
Nola: How come Lex gets to score at that strip club and I can't?
DJay: Cause we've been over this ten times, Nola - You've got what they call a bad equilibrium and it ain't your fault you just knock into shit. I put you on that stage in them heels, tricks gonna be yelling "timber!" .
Nola: I'm in these heels every day and you never seen me fall down once!
DJay: Cause you sittin', Nola! And that ain't much of a fall to the floor. Look, why don't you just let me do the thinking for you, OK? You do what you do, and let me do what I do.
Nola: One day, you'll have to tell me about that.
DJay: About what?
Nola: The fuck it is you do!
DJay: What did you just say to me?
[the trick from earlier comes back]
Nola: [leans out of the window] Hey honey. Wanna see me walk in these heels all the way to your lap? I'll be right over.
Nola: [to DJay] Looks like he got air in his car, D. Must be working hard as you.
Shug: I get like this because I'm pregnant and everything... but, you know, letting me sing on the... on the demo and everything like you do... well, it just... it made me feel real. Real special. And... I mean, I know y'all gonna be moving on and moving up... and y'all gonna get real good people to sing, you know, back up for you and everything... but I just... D, I need you to know it meant the world to me.
Lexus: I ain't workin' day shift no more, D. I don't care if I have to catch a taxi ride home. I ain't workin with these stank ass, trucker bait hoes no more.
Key: Sometimes I feel like... like I talked such a good game when we was young, man. About my own studio and my own label, that... shit, DJay, now I'm just payin' rent, man. This shit right here gotta work. It gotta work, man, 'cause it ain't over for me.
DJay: That's a bottom bitch for you. I mean, we got everything we need right here. And all this stuff in this... this little-bitty space, man, it just looks so much bigger now. I'm here trying to squeeze a dollar out of a dime, and I ain't even got a cent, man.
Key: It takes time, Djay.
[leaning Lexus's head against his stomach]
DJay: You hear that? That's my gut saying "hurry the fuck up", okay?
