Do the Right Thing (1989) Poster

Robin Harris: Sweet Dick Willie



  • Sweet Dick Willie : You wanna boycott someone? You ought to start with the goddamn barber that fucked up your head.

  • ML : Well, gentlemen, the way I see it, if this hot weather continues, it's going to melt the polar caps and the whole wide world. And all the parts that ain't water already will surely be blooded.

    Coconut Sid : You're a simple motherfucker. Now where you read that shit, eh? Polar caps...

    ML : Don't worry about it. But when it happens, and I'm in my boat, and your black asses are drowning, don't call for me to throw you no rope, no lifesaver, or no nothing.

    Sweet Dick Willie : You fool! You're 30 cents away from having a quarter! Where the fuck you gon' get a boat?

  • Sweet Dick Willie : It ain't never too hot or never too cold for fuckin'!

  • ML : Look at those Korean motherfuckers across the street. I betcha they haven't been a year off da motherfucking boat before they opened up their own place.

    Coconut Sid : It's been about a year.

    ML : A motherfucking year off the motherfucking boat and got a good business in our neighborhood occupying a building that had been boarded up for longer than I care to remember and I've been here a long time.

    Sweet Dick Willie : It has been a long time.

    Coconut Sid : How long?

    ML : Too long! Too long. Now for the life of me, I haven't been able to figger this out. Either dem Koreans are geniuses or we Blacks are dumb.

  • [while mourning Radio Raheem, who just got choked to death by the cops] 

    Coconut Sid : It ain't safe in our own fucking neighborhood! Never was. Never will be.

    Sweet Dick Willie : We ain't gonna stand for this shit no more, Sal. Ain't gonna stand for no fucking police, punk!

    ML : It's as plain as day. They didn't have to kill the boy.

  • Sweet Dick Willie : [Radio Raheem walks past blasting Public Enemy on his boombox]  Goddamn! Turn that shit off; play some Bobby Blue Bland.
