Kate: What are you drinking? Hennessy?
Tariq: I don’t usually drink.
Kate: Juice box?

Brayden: What are you asking me?
Kiki: Maybe, maybe you need to get out of here, too. I mean, seriously, think about what you’re becoming.
Brayden: It’s a little late for that.

Tariq: I thought you was out, man?
Brayden: Nah, I couldn’t leave you hanging like that, are you fucking kidding me? What do we do now?
Tariq: Man, I don’t know. I think we just started a fucking war, though.

Be smart, Tariq.


Lauren: Jenny and Blanca were right, weren’t they? The drugs, murders. It all comes back to you.
Tariq: No, listen. It wasn’t supposed to-
Lauren: Don’t. This is the last time you lie to me.

Tommy: You got some fucking balls. You brought a fucking gun to my mother’s house?
Tariq: This exact one, Uncle Tommy. I swear on my life I’ll use it if you don’t tell me what happened to my mother.

Tasha: Listen to me. Our blood feud ends now. Or else we’re gonna end up in the grave just like LaKeisha. Just like Ghost.
Tommy: Fuck. Tasha, fuck.

But I’m not letting this fucking go. I’m gonna bury Davis, the Tejada’s, and Tariq. Every single one of those fuckers.

Jenny [to Blanca]

Brayden: I don’t want to be someone who could kill their own father.
Tariq: I never said I fucking did that shit, all right. Shut the fuck up saying that.
Brayden: You didn’t have to.

Tariq: What the fuck happened to you?
Brayden: Cane went fucking Suge Knight on my ass cause he found out Lauren was alive. And Effie got arrested. He thinks I’m up to it.

Evelyn: There’s a video of Dru floating around. Know anything about that?
Monet: Do I look like I’m on Youtube?
Evelyn: Stop lying, bitch.
Monet: Have you lost your fucking mind?

My brother, stupid motherfucker. Saxe deserved a bullet, no doubt. But that should have been my bullet. Not Theo’s.

Davis [to Tariq]
