When Chris struggles with algebra, Rochelle tries teaching him. When her teaching doesn't help, he turns to his grandma for help. Meanwhile, Julius gets Risky a job helping him deliver newspapers. Drew breaks Julius' chair, but Tonya takes the blame and makes Drew wait on her hand and foot.
- Caruso (to Chris) Hey, Major Harris. If you mess up our pizza day, I'm gonna smack the crust out of you.
- Rochelle (to Chris) :You could work with me. I know algebra like the back of my hand.
- Narrator: Which will probably end up upside my head.
- Greg (to Chris): If your mom knows algebra, why don't you want her to tutor you?
- Chris: 'Cause when I'm working with her, I never learn anything. She's like Bobby Knight. All she does is scream and point.
- Rochelle (to Chris while helping him with homework): God, Chris, what kind of answer is that?
- Narrator: The kind you come up with, with a crazy woman screaming at you.
- Rochelle (to Chris): Chris, how come you just didn't say something instead of sneaking around? What else are you learning on the side? English? Science? History? Where does it stop?!
- Narrator: One day, she caught me speaking Latin and kicked me out of the house.
- Maxine (to Rochelle): Rochelle, all you did was holler at the boy.
- Narrator: My mother was hollering at her boy long before it was cool to holla at your boy.
- Julius (to Risky): You can't just up and quit every time you don't like something.
- Narrator: It works for Terrell Owens.
- Rochelle: Are you telling me I don't know what I'm doing?
- Narrator: Yes.
- Maxine: Don't ask me, ask him.
- Narrator: I'll tell her, and you tell everyone my last words were "Thanks a lot, Grandma."
