Jim Brown: (Cassius Clay is bouncing on the motel bed) What are you, a giant fucking baby!

Jim Brown: Y'all pulled out the knives. And if I get cut, I'm gonna hurt somebody.

Sam Cooke: (On Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind") I felt I should have written that song.

Sam Cooke: Everybody talks about they wantin' a piece of the pie, well I don't. I want the goddamn recipe.

Sam Cooke: It's time to take this party to the Fountainbleu, Whoo! (starts singing) Sam Cooke: Havin' a party... Malcolm X: You've obviously forgotten, brother Cassius no longer drinks. Sam Cooke: And you obviously haven't smelled his breath in the last hour.

Jim Brown: I am Jim motherfucking Brown!

Jim Brown: Say man, do you have any regrets, you know, hitchin' your cart to the Muslim train? Jamaal: Yeah, yes I think you could say I do. Jim Brown: Really. Jamaal: I regret that I didn't join when I was younger. This kid named Rollis used to chase me on the way home every damned day. That's the reason I stopped goin'. I reckon if I'd've gotten with the bothers sooner, we could have nipped it in the bud and put our foot in Rollin's ass, know what I'm sayin'? Jim Brown: Yeah, but you don't need a religion for that. Kid, you could have just joined a gang. Jamaal: What's the difference?

Malcolm X: What kind of message are you sending, though, by doing one show for white folks and a completely different show for black folks, Sam? Sam Cooke: (laughing in contempt) Ha. Malcolm X: No, listen to me, you're performing in places where the only black people not on stage are the ones serving the food. Sam Cooke: Don't you think I know that? I can't tell you how many times I wanted to reach out and punch somebody. Malcolm X: Then, then, then, then strike with the weapon that you have, man: your voice! Black people, we, we standing up! We, we speaking out! Sam Cooke: Umm hm. Malcolm X: Sam, you have possibly one of the most effective, beautiful outlets of us all. You're not using it to help the cause, brother Sam Cooke: The hell I'm not! I got the masters to my songs. I started a label, I'm producing tons of black artists. Don't you think my determining my own creative and business destiny is every bit as inspiring to people as you standing up on a podium trying to piss 'em off?

Jim Brown: This has been one strange fucking night.

Jim Brown: Don't you think it's about time to party?

Sam Cooke: The only color they care about in the Cali is the color green.

Cassius Clay: Power just means a world where we're safe to be ourselves. To look like we want. To think like we want. Without having to answer to anybody for it.

Sam Cooke: But you still obey them, so when they tell you to come out here to recruit Cassius to become a member of some... Malcolm X: I didn't make Cassius do anything! He came to me for insight, he had questions. His passion for Islam come from a pure... Cassius Clay: Passion... is kind of a strong word.

Sam Cooke: Everybody talks about wantin' a piece of the pie, well I don't. I want the goddamn recipie!

Malcolm X: (Quoting Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind") 'How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?'
