Elzora: Some things are better left unsaid.
Mozelle Batiste Delacroix: I paid you a dollar, old woman. Now tell my fortune.
Elzora: I don't need no cat bones to tell your fortune, Mozelle Batiste. You are a curse. The Black Widow. Next man that marries you is a dead man. Like the others. Always be that way.
Eve Batiste: Mama keeps stabbing herself in the kitchen! Show her your hands, Mama.
Roz Batiste: I think you'd better hush.
Eve Batiste: And where Daddy? He's never home. He's supposed to be home sometimes.

Eve Batiste: Not every night he's working, I know he's not.
