Queen Sugar Season 4 Episode 11: "I'm Sorry" Quotes
Nova: We celebrate this young king and queen today not only for their beauty but also for their brains. A round of applause to Keke who’s going to my Tulane University on a full visual arts scholarship…and our dear Micah West who’s taking his talents all the way across the country to Harvard.
Charley: My baby’s going to Harvard!
Charley: The arrogance of mediocre white men never ceases to astound me.
Jacob: It’s not arrogance, Charley, it’s power. I told you my family stops at nothing that gets in their way.
Ralph Angel: Look, Deesha, you are an amazing woman. I just, I just wish…
Deesha: You didn’t have other obligations?
Ralph Angel: I guess. They ain’t even obligations. I can just see now that if she’s hurting, I’m hurting. If she bleed, I bleed. I ain’t even sure it’s much of a choice at this point but I’m still in love with Darla.
Deesha: What you just said is one of the most beautiful things a man can say to a woman but I’m not the woman you’re talking about and I respect myself too much to play second fiddle.
Ralph Angel: You deserve more than that.
Deesha: I know I do but I wish you well, Ralph Angel. Blue and Darla too.
Charley: You know the difference between you and me? I know my shame and I’ve dealt with my issues. But Jacob, despite the evidence of all of American history, your history, you can’t even acknowledge that your issues around whiteness even exist.
Jacob: How can I be better?
Charley: Drop out of the race?
Jacob: I can’t do that. I want to, I don’t even want to be a councilman but it’s too late for that now.
Charley: Wow. So there’s nothing that you can do.
Jacob: I can promise to work with you once I’m in office.
Charley: No. No, that is not good enough. Do better.
Jacob: I can’t just drop out of the race but maybe I can find a way to make myself unelectable, you know, throw the race.
Charley: I think I can help you with that.
It was painful to be away from you but I’d convinced myself that it was my choice. At all times,Nova
I remained in control but I can’t say I was happy.
Calvin: Say yes.
Nova: To what?
Calvin: To us. To happiness.
Ralph Angel: The thing is, nobody tell you that loving somebody could hurt so much. Always terrified of losing all the things you pray for.
Darla: I pray for you. I still do. I pray that you could forgive me one day.
Ralph Angel: I already told you, I do, and I mean it.
Darla: I mean really forgive me. Forgive me enough to go back to what we had before. Do you think you could ever think about us again?
Ralph Angel: I always do. I don’t think I ever really stopped.
Nova: Now that’s a bold move but, this won’t win him more votes?
Charley: If we play this right, he’ll lose 10 maybe 15% of his white voters, the ones who are blatantly racists, and the small percentage of black supporters he has will reconsider his support once they start to feel he’s pandering his newfound ethnicity and that should be enough to tip the race in my favor.
Nova: That’s bold, Charley. Risky for you and Jacob. The Landrys, the Boudreauxs, and whoever else they’re working with behind the scenes, I don’t think they handle losing very well.
Charley: Yeah, well, neither do I.
