"The Neighbors" Close Encounters of the Bird Kind (TV Episode 2014) Poster

Toks Olagundoye: Jackie Joyner-Kersee


  • [When Jackie, Debbie and Marty burst through the door, Larry turns off the computer] 

    Jackie Joyner-Kersee : Husband, what are you doing in here on your computer looking all nervous and sweaty?

    Debbie Weaver : Hey Marty, it seems like aliens and humans have more in common than we thought.

    Marty Weaver : It was one time!

  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee : You'd think that just once he'd ask about my life, about how a black woman can change her hairstyle so many times without using a weave. It's just me and Beyoncé, we're the only ones!

  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee : We've been married for fourteen-hundred-and-two years.

    Barb Hartley : Sometimes it feels that way, doesn't it?

    Jackie Joyner-Kersee : Well if by sometimes, you mean literally, then yes.

  • [Jackie talks to a therapist] 

    Jackie Joyner-Kersee : Oh my goodness, I can't believe all the random emotions that are coming out of me! I feel like a Meryl Streep highlight reel.

  • Larry Bird : I've been involved in some very important work.

    Jackie Joyner-Kersee : I am important, husband! What I want is important. I want to know that this planet is our home. I want to know that we belong here - permanently... or at least for a few more seasons.

  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee : Just please just make me feel better. You're a shrink - shrink me!

    Barb Hartley : Oh Jackie, sometimes therapy takes years of hard work and reflection.

    Jackie Joyner-Kersee : But Dr. Phil does it in an hour, just in time for Family Feud. And it's only 15 minutes 'til the Feud, Barb.
