Madea: How you doing there? What can I get for you?
Child: Does Santa really work at the North Pole?

“No, sit down! Do what you do best. Sit down. Just stay right where you are. Just plant your ass right there in that chair. Everytime I come here, you sit in that chair. People waiting on their car, you sit in that chair. You suppose to be changing oil, you sit in that chair. You suppose to be changing windshield white blade, you sit in that chair. Suppose to wash the car, you sit in that chair. Let me tell you something. When you die, tell dem people to bury you on your stomach to give your ass a break. – Madea

“What I’ve found about it is that there are some folks you can talk to until you’re blue in the face–they’re never going to get it and they’re never going to change. But every once in a while, you’ll run into someone who is eager to listen, eager to learn, and willing to try new things. Those are the people we need to reach. We have a responsibility as parents, older people, teachers, people in the neighborhood to recognize that.”- Tyler Perry

“Some people come in your life for a lifetime, others come for a season. You’ve got to know which is which. And you gon always mess up if you mix the seasonal people up with the lifetime people.” – Madea
“I put everybody that comes into my life in the category of a tree. Some people are like leaves. They change their position according to the wind. They are unstable. When the season changes, they wither and die. Some people are like a branch. You have to be careful of these branches because they’ll fool you. They’ll make you think they are good friends and really strong. But the moment you step on them, they’ll break and leave you high and dry. But if you find two or three people in your life like the roots at the bottom of the tree, you are blessed. Because that’s the kind of people that will stay in your life and go nowhere. A tree can have more than a million and hundred leaves and branches but only a few roots at the bottom. When you get some roots, hold on to them and let the rest go. Without the roots, the tree won’t be there.” – Madea
“God gives everyone a lane and no one can beat you in your lane. Just stay focused on Him and what you are supposed to do. And everything will be alright.” – TYLER PERRY

“Parents are not perfect. They do what they know how to do. And the minute we stop blaming them for everything they did, couldn’t do, didn’t know what to do, don’t know why they did it, and get up and go on with the life they gave us, we’ll be much better off. You have to be grateful for the life they gave you.” – Madea
“Everybody’s got skeletons in the closets. Every once in a while, you’ve got to open up the closet and the let the skeletons breathe. Half the time, the very thing you think is gonna destroy you or ruin you is the very thing that nobody cares about. My advice to people with skeletons is to dust them off every now and then– as long as your closet’s aint full of them. It’s not good to have more than two or three.” – Tyler Perry
“Just kids end up been just adults who end up in just damn jail.” – Madea
Madea: Little girl, if you don’t stop popping that gum!
Nicki: Look, if you touch me, I’m gonna call 911.
Madea: My daughter tried that and I hit her so hard she dialed 99-10.
