    Tembo: To be not afraid is to be careless.

    Jackie: [to Komba the bushbaby] What is there to fear, eh, Komba?

    Tembo: The galago fears little because he knows little. The lion is wise and fears much because he knows much.

    Jackie: [to Komba] Did you hear what he said? He thinks you're stupid. You're not stupid, are you, Komba?

  • Jackie: I'm sorry, Tembo. I should have listened and gone to the police like you said.

    Jackie: No.

    [pulls out Komba the galago]

    Jackie: Bushbaby!

    Steward: Queer, ain't it? It looks a bit like a monkey!

  • John Leeds: [Jackie and her father are standing next to a gravestone marked "In loving memory of Penelope Leeds, who died in the uprising of 1961"] I've arranged for Tembo to keep the flowers watered.

    John Leeds: He'll be at the boat to see us off.

    [noticing Jackie's discontentment]

    John Leeds: Jackie... Tembo belongs in Africa.

    Jackie: Like Komba?

    [she walks away from her father]

    Jackie: I belong here, too. I was born here. I don't want to go away.

    John Leeds: It can't be helped Jackie. I don't want to leave Africa any more than you do.

    Jackie: It isn't only Africa, I have to leave everything!

  • Tembo: [after Jackie wakes up] Do you feel better, mtoto?

    Jackie: Mm, much better. I'm not hot anymore.

    Tembo: [in approval] Hm.

    Jackie: The pain in my arm's gone.

    Tembo: [again in approval] Hmm!

    Jackie: Oh, where's Cranky?

    Tembo: Do not be angry, but I could not let him take you in his airship because many times I've heard your father say that it is not safe. So I took you from that place when he was not looking.

    Jackie: [with surprise at the object Tembo is now carrying] Where did you get the gun?

    Tembo: I took it from the bwana doctor.

    Jackie: Why I hope you didn't hurt poor old Cranky.

    Tembo: Why should I hurt him? He's only a foolish old man. I only took the gun so he would not hurt me.

    Jackie: Kwaheri, Komba!

  • [first lines]

    Jackie: [Jackie and Tembo are chasing a small galago around a baobab tree] Where is he?

    Tembo: Sshh!

    Jackie: [after Tembo catches the creature he hands it to Jackie] Oh! Oh, he's so tiny!

    Tembo: He's a young one.

    Jackie: What shall I call him?

    Tembo: He has many names: bushbaby, galago... In Swahili he's called "Komba."

    Jackie: Komba! That's marvelous.

    [to Komba]

    Jackie: Hey Komba, Komba...!

    [to Tembo]

    Jackie: Oh, thank you, Tembo. Asante sana!

    Tembo: Stahere, mtoto.

  • Tembo: They have no reason to kill me; I've done nothing.

    Jackie: My mother did nothing.

  • Tembo: Are you sure you know this place?

    Jackie: Of course I do; I spent many holidays here. The cottage's up this way and the village is over there. So, stop worrying.

    Tembo: I will stop when you're in the ship with your baba and I'm in the bush.

  • Jackie: My answer is "cock", and I wrote it really big, so I have a "big cock!"

    Howard: I'm afraid you can't say "big cock" on the air. That's a no-no.

    Robin Quivers: But I just said "pussy".

    Jackie: [whining] Yeah, she just said *pussy*!

    Howard: Well, pussy's okay. It's the way you say it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth is, just not good.

    Jackie: Wait a minute. I can't say "big cock", but you can say "big cock coming out of your mouth?"

    Howard: That's right.

    Jackie: That sucks!

    [Pig Vomit, very pissed off, starts running for the studio]

    Fred Norris: [as Richard Nixon] Did you just say "big cock coming out of your mouth that sucks"?

    Howard: So Brett, what did you write down?

    Robin Quivers: [as Brett Summers] Just like the boys, Gene. I've got "cock".

    Howard: Do me a favor. Hold that up for a second so I can see your "cock".

  • Jackie: [after being hit by Ike for defending Tina] Fuck you, Ike! I'm outta here. You ain't got to hit me but once!

    Ike Turner, Sr.: [throws Jackie's bag at her] If you had any sense, you'd get the fuck out of here!

    Jackie: [to Ike] KISS MY ASS!

    [to Tina]

    Jackie: You're a dead woman if you stay here!

    Ike Turner, Sr.: And don't let me catch you around in my house either! Come on, sit down and eat some cake, Anna Mae.

  • Jackie: [to Anna Mae] Lorraine was Ike's last gig. He's always booking ahead. Now, you watch yourself.

  • Jackie: I want a band. I want amplifiers. I want, I want, I want.

  • Aitch: Look, with this pill, they say you take it and that's it. Your hair don't grow, you don't go bald, it stays the same. You have your hair cut once, in whatever style you want, and it stays like that for the rest of your natural life. It's completely revolutionary.

    Jackie: What if you get fed up with your style, you berk?

    Aitch: Ahh... Well, that's where the antidote comes in. The whole process is reversible. You just take a different pill. Now, I'm not saying this is gonna happen next year but it will happen, it's definitely coming. Hairdressers are shitting themselves.

    Jackie: [cracking up laughing] Shut up!

    Aitch: They did a test with three monkeys, right? Gave 'em all a Beatles-style haircut. They've been living with that cut for the past two years. And apparently, they're very happy with it.

  • Don: You ever worked in an office?

    Jackie: No.

    Don: Nice telephone voice. I've worked in an office. I was 17. Does that surprise you?

    T.J.: Mister, help me. Wake him up! Wake him!

    Doctor: We're all real sorry.

    T.J.: Please, wake him up!

    Doctor: Let's go outside.

    T.J.: No, no! I don't want to! I don't want to!

    [runs to Jackie]

    T.J.: Jackie! Wake him up! Wake him!

    Jackie: TJ, please.

    T.J.: I want Champ!

    Jackie: TJ...

    T.J.: I want Champ!

    Jackie: TJ. Please, TJ, listen to me. He's gone. He's gone, son. He's gone.

    T.J.: [shakes his head and backs away from Jackie] No. No! He's not gone! He's not! He's not!

    Jackie: What?

    Clyde: How your cunt taste like.

    Jackie: [looking at Clyde blankly, not being surprised at all]

    Clyde: Shocked?

    Jackie: [blankly] Not really.

  • Clyde: [seeing Jackie for the first time] Have we met?

    Jackie: Yeah, I saw you at a cafe.

    Clyde: Right. At a cafe.

    [Clyde takes Jackie's hand and they both start to dance]

  • Jackie: All religious writings are pornographic.

  • Jackie: Amy! Amy open the door... Amy? For Christ's sake, open the door!

    [closet light turns itself off]

    Jackie: [yells] Amy!

  • Pokey Jones: I never left home, but I know every inch of this highway. I know it inside out. Ask me a question if you like: ask me anything.

    Pokey: No, I'm fine, thank you.

    Webster: Only when I'm stealing.

  • Jackie: You have the audacity to bring her here and give her alcohol.

  • Eugene: So how come you decided to leave home tonight?

    Jackie: I decided to leave a couple of months ago but every time I started planning it for real, I started feeling kind of guilty... like I would hurt my mom's feelings for leaving... or my friends would think I was looking down on them because I didn't want to hang out watching TV anymore. I want to do something different, but I guess I've just been feeling guilty about leaving.

    Eugene: Why is tonight any different?

    Jackie: Well I've been listening to you and I hear all these mistakes you think you've made and I just think "I want that". I want to be in a situation where I don't know how I'll react. Something to face out there or in here that I never would have thought of. And I want to make mistakes. Not like yours, but my own. Because at least that will mean I'm trying.

  • Eugene: I feel like I want to cry, but all I do is get angry.

    Jackie: Maybe you're angry you can't cry.
