Erykah Badu: Rose Rose



  • [Homer reads the actual Cider House Rules to the illiterate workers] 

    Peaches : What do they think, go up to the roof to sleep? They must think we're crazy. They think we're dumb niggers, so we need some dumb rules, is what they think.

    Rose Rose : That's it? It don't mean nothin' at all. And all this time I been wonderin' about 'em.

    Arthur Rose : They outrageous, them rules. Who live in this cider house? Who grindin' up those apples, pressin' that cider, cleanin' up all this mess? Who just plain live here, just breathin' in that vinegar? Well, someone who don't live here made those rules. Those rules ain't for us. We are supposed to make our own rules. And we do. Every single day.

  • [Mr. Rose has a hold on his daughter to keep her from riding off on her bike to get away in the middle of the night]

    Homer : I'm in the doctor business. I can help. That's all I'm saying. I can help.

    [Mixture of astonishment and relief washes over the Roses] 

  • Candy Kendall : I know what's going on Rose. Homer told me. You don't know this, but I got pregnant about a year ago. Do you want to have this baby? No? Who's the father? Does he know? If you don't want to have this baby, Homer and I will take you to a place. It's safe. He knows this doc...

    Rose Rose : I can't go nowhere.

    Candy Kendall : Why? Rose, listen to me. You can tell me. It's ok.

    [Rose starts crying]
