Best Quotes from Empire: Tameness of the Wolf

Cookie Lyon made a serious miscalculation at her birthday party when she played a rough cut of the “Boom Boom” video for her children. It was their first acquaintance with their father’s early history and it really threw Andre for a loop. But we’ll let Ta’Rhonda Jones tell you more about that. Here are our quote picks from “Tameness of the Wolf”

Bre-Z as Freda Gatz in Empire

Freda was in for a big surprise when Lucious did her dirty, too

Freda Gatz: If Lucious did y’all dirty that ain’t got nothing to do with me so y’all have a safe trip back to Soho and try not to get jacked.

Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porscha in Empire

Porsha can’t quite get her instructions straight

Cookie I got my champagne, my peonies…
Porsha: Wait… peonies… I thought you said… you mean pennies?
Cookie: Porsha, why in the hell would I need six dozen pennies?

Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon in Empire

Forget that ASA award… just give Lucious the Toxic Parent of the Century Award

Lucious: “The real truth is my mother was a nut job. I was embarrassed by her. The same way that I am embarrassed by you.”

Jamila Velazquez (Laura) and Bryshere Y. Gray (Hakeem) in Empire

This is good but what will happen to ruin it?

Hakeem: Will you marry me?
Laura: Yes!

When Laura’s dad expressed his happiness over Laura exceeding his success in the music world, Hakeem was hit hard. A father who wanted you to be better than him? It was just so foreign. He decided that he wanted to have his own family and the one he wants to have it with is Laura. It would be nice to see Hakeem and Laura live happily after, but what are the odds in this Empire? Besides, Anika is back in the picture now.

Kaitlin Doubleday as Rhonda and Grace Gealey as Anika in Empire

You know this ain’t good

Rhonda – it’s be nice to be around someone sane for a change, too.

And now, here’s Ta’Rhonda with the B-Side.
