Movie quotes

  • (..) Yeah, but the biggest thing is getting your hair wet up. I got my hair pressed that same morning and it was wasted as soon as I hit the water. I should have worn a swim cap like Mama said. See, I asked my mama could she make my hair like Coretta Scott King had hers at the Washington March. (..)
