In this life, you always gotta go full out.
Ain't no mark in this ish.
Do it again, but before that, give me 50 toe touches.
ALL: One.
Can't believe you got these girls practicing on a Sunday afternoon too.
God don't mind, 'cause thou shalt not lose to the Southaven Sizzles.
That girl done got too big to be wearing shorts that short.
Her mom all right with it.
ALL: Four, five, six, seven, eight.
Can't believe I even let you hide your booty money in the church building fund.
You sure weren't complaining when I put that booty money in y'all account so y'all could apply for that loan.
Well, you got your pulpit and I got mine.
You in a hole that deep for a refinancing loan? How you let it get that bad, man? Oh, nigga, hush.
We ain't never gonna be able to keep the fridge on ice with Mercedes on her way out the door.

CLIFFORD: Oh, bitch constantly be on CP time.
Y'all let her know I'm instituting some new rules for y'all hos starting tonight.
The new stripper math: $4 off a lap dance, 15% off the private rooms for the house.
- WOMAN: The fuck? - Stage work was always paid beforehand.
Now that include tip-out too.
MERCEDES: Oh, come on.
You really gonna have bitches hitting the floor negative a Benjy? Hell, if bitches ain't skip out on tip-out at the end of the night, maybe Uncle Clifford wouldn't have to make y'all pay before.
Me and my girl pocketbook getting fucked up over here.
Well, we'd all leave with more scrilla in our pockets if y'all didn't make them weak-ass drinks.
Mercedes, you be the main one.
Always flodging like you gonna come up off them duckets, and at the end of the night, your ass ain't nowhere to be seen.
- - DJ Neva Scared know.
CLIFFORD: Cool all that nastiness down now.
Cool down.
Now, y'all know if it wasn't for Mercedes Sundays, y'all hos wouldn't be ringing in nothing but $20 each on a holy night.
I don't know what y'all gonna do without this Mississippi bread, chitlins, and corn bread-fed booty! But I'ma pay what I owe y'all.
'Cause tonight this ass gonna make it rain hella fast.
Maybe even some tetanus too.
I, um I fell.
Don't tell me it's corn bread when I smell them biscuits burning.

No, no.
I do, um, real estate.
Stupid me, I didn't take all the pictures I needed to earlier for a meeting with a client.
Hey, you all right? [EXHALES HEAVILY.]
Yeah, yeah.
Um, just needed some air.
Gets stuffy in there.
I couldn't breathe.
The smoke? Actually, you got one? No.
What's your vice, then? Don't got one.
Can't trust a man without a vice.
We all need to give in to something.
True that.
Andre Watkins.
They call me Autumn Night.
- Sounds all poetic and - All poetic and shit.
I'm sorry I was so abrasive just then.
I just got a little shook.
Can only imagine what you gotta shake off working up in there.
Your client's a vampire.
They got you out here taking pictures after midnight.
It's just that during the day, this place goes ghost.
But at night, the spots round here, they, uh, start poppin'.
Client just couldn't believe.
Let me see.
You got a good eye.
That I do.
Well, you ain't seen poppin' until you come inside.
You coming in? You trying to give me a vice? Why? You want one? No.
No, no, I'ma head on back.
But it was a pleasure meeting you, Autumn.
Actually it's Hailey.
- That's my name.
- Nice.
Well, good night, Hailey.

Mercedes! Wait.
Why you didn't tell me you was coming tonight, Ma? You know I don't like surprises.
They love you.
Folks was willing to give up their rent and car note for you.
I didn't know you made that kind of money.
Well, tonight was a good night.
What you think? I mean, I see how you manage your abundance.
You always said I was blessed and highly favored.
Thank you, Jesus.
Where did I go wrong, Mercedes? Mama, don't start this shit again.
Why has my God forsaken me? He must be so mad at me to have given me a ho for a daughter.
Heifer, I ain't never been no ho.
Your body is a temple, Mercedes.
Didn't I teach you that? You sure did.
That's why when I was a young un, you sent me over to bend my temple over in front of them niggas to get them to buy our breakfast at the Waffle House.
I ain't know the Lord then.
Bitch, you barely know him now.
- Stripping is blasphemous.
- No, Ma.
It art.
I transport motherfuckers.
Dazzle them, something you wish you could do.
Oh, Mercedes, this ain't gonna get you through the gates of heaven.
Well, I heard hell hella lit, though.
With all this, church should have been getting double the tithes and offering, with all the money I seen these heathens waste on you tonight.
So you think I'm a waste? You're not a waste, Mercedes.
But this is a waste of time and your talent.
You think I'm doing this for nothing? You ain't been doing shit but breaking my heart! Oh, Lord! This all my fault.
With everything I done done, I I deserve this.
Put her sins on me, Lord, 'cause I can carry 'em.
For her and for me, and I don't care if I have to die as a sacrifice for this daughter of mine.
I will do everything in my power to save her.
Save her, oh, dear Lord! Save her! Save this ho! Save her, Lord! Save her.
Save her, Lord! Save her! Save this-save God is always grateful for an offering.
But he'd be even more grateful for your repentance.
The cash all I got to give tonight.
