Quotes

Ron Howard: Look, look, Raheem, I'm not Opie Taylor and I'm not Richie Cunningham. I'm Ron Howard, I'm a grown man. You know I'm directing now? Did you see the new movie I have out, "Night Shift"?
Raheem Abdul Mohammed: Was there any black people in it?
Ron Howard: No.
Raheem Abdul Mohammed: I didn't see it, then. What was it about?
Ron Howard: Oh, well, it was, uh, the story about these two pimps.
Raheem Abdul Mohammed: It's the story about two pimps and wasn't no brothers in it? I don't know whether to say "Thank you" or punch you in your mouth, man.
