When Jack and Diane get in trouble at school, Dre and Bow have to figure out the right balance of discipline and support so that their kids aren't too afraid of authority nor entitled either. Meanwhile, Ruby thinks Junior's Spanish teacher is flirting with him, and he begins to realize that girls at school are starting to check him out.
|“|| Dre: Okay, guys. How do we cut our food? |
Jack and Diane: Continental style. Tines down.
Dre: Mm-hmm. And remember, chew each bite at least 40 times.
Jack: I-I-I have oatmeal.
Dre: Chew it. That's how you become a winner in life.
|“|| Jack: Jar put his boots right on the table. Baller. |
Dre: Hey, don't you worry about what Jar is doing. That's White Breakfast, you just sit back and enjoy your Black Breakfast. And remember, if you ever misbehave, it's a reflection on our entire community.
|“|| Bow: Excuse me. Hi. Your daughter just took my bacon and broke my yolk. |
White Parent: It's okay. She believes in communal food.
Bow: Really? Well, here's the thing: I think that's stupid.
|“|| Dre (V.O.): And since my system works and my kids never misbehave, I never expected this news from their teacher. |
Teacher: I caught these kids (George and Jar) showing these kids (Jack and Diane) how to spray paint the bathroom. Now, I won't tell you what they were painting, but, Mr. Johnson, you have one, and, Mrs. Johnson, you don't.
|“|| Ruby: Let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time, Grandma was a sophomore in high school and fully developed. |
Dre, Jr: Ew.
Ruby: Male teachers noticed, especially Mr. Whittset. Now, I noticed him noticing me, and one night, we noticed a movie. To make a long story short, he lost his kids, and thanks to me, my school didn't have a math department. Now, do you get what I'm saying?
Dre, Jr: You know I don't.
Ruby: [whispers sternly] Stay away from Ms. Barbara [normal voice] I'm not gonna let you murder someone's husband so your teacher can get out of a bad marriage. Now get up and get on out of here! Pull your pants up!
