[to Shug] He (Albert) beat me when you ain't here. He beat me for not being you.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Shug like honey. And now, I's just like a bee.
See Daddy, sinners have souls too.
[to Celie] You sho is ugly.
(Laughter) I done had enough bad luck to keep me laughin the rest of my life. Sat in that jail, I sat in that jail til I nearby done rot to death. I know what it like Ms. Celie, to wanna go somewhere and cain't. I know what it like to wanna sing... and have it beat outch'ya. I want to thank you, Miss Celie, fo evrything you done for me. I 'members that day I was in the store with Miss Millie - I's feelin' real down. I's feelin' mighty bad. And when I see'd you - I knowed there is a God. I knowed there is a God. And one day I was gonna get to come home.
Oh... Sofia home, now. Sofia home. Things is gonna be changin' around here. Pass me them peas, boy.
All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my uncles. I had to fight my brothers. A girl child ain't safe in a family of men, but I ain't never thought I'd have to fight in my own house!
[Sofia begins to laugh after years of silence] My God, the dead has arisen.
[to Albert] Boy, you goin' let this ol' nappy-headed girl cuss you out like that? You sittin' at the head of your own dinner table and actin' like a waiter.
[about Shrug Avery] She black as tar, nappy-headed, got legs like baseball bats, and I hear she got that nasty women's disease.
