FAMOUS QUOTES BY CHARLIE MURPHY
“Eddie and everybody else thought that that was the funniest shit. And that threw me in a weird space cause I’m like, “Yo, this is Rick James and he’s a star. Maybe I’m overreacting.” I actually went there like, “Maybe I shouldn’t do nothing.” But my ghetto side was going, “Yo, stomp this motherfucker out right here. What the fuck is wrong with him?”"
“My brother, he’s a lot more compassionate than I am, you know. We were looking at Rick getting in the limo, and as it drove off, Eddie says, “Man… Rick really needs help”. I was like, “Hey man, we just gave him some help. We busted his motha fuckin’ legs. I bet he won’t come back and disrespect again.” WRONG, WRONG… We’re talkin’ bout Rick James, man.”
“Things like escalated to the point where, you know, my man got too familiar and I ended up having to whip his ass man, you know, cause you know, he would step across the line. Habitually. He’s a habitual line stepper.”
“I was there, I seen it. You don’t believe me, you think I’m making it up? You think I’m trying to, uh, you know enhance the story because I’m involved?

And make sure your people is there to see the game! Cause you might get embarrassed, trust me.”
