Conversation
Barbara: Well, Steph, like any married couple, Dick and I fought sometimes. Sometimes he won, sometimes I won, but usually we forgot what we were arguing about and just had sex.
Stephanie: [plugging her ears] La la la la...
Barbara: Look, the important thing is that we always ended up on the same team.
Stephanie: [nods sagely]
Barbara: And in the same bed.
Stephanie: How can you be so wise and so inappropriate at the same time?

The most interesting thing about The 39 Clues book series was that they always managed to attract top-notch talent to it. In the original series alone, we had:
-Rick Riordan
-Gordon Korman
-Peter Lerangis
-Jude Watson
-Patrick Carman
-Linda Sue Park
-Margaret Peterson Haddix
This trend only continued as time went by. It really showed how well a collaborative effort could turn out.

Super Fly (1972) dir. Gordon Parks Jr. 7.1/10
This Freddie is just so pathetic.
Get you a mans who’ll leave the drug scene for you.
Real snazzy music.  They should refer to this fashion as swag.
The technique of using pictures to show what’s happening was good to me and amusing.
This doesn’t really show me how hard it is to get out of the drug world, but it was good nonetheless.
Spoiler: [About two thieves stealing from the next person to enter a stairwell. They steal from Priest, a coke dealer, who chases them and gets his things back. Fat Freddie and a friend comes to his place and talk about how Freddie doesn’t have his money. He’s given one more chance to get his money even though Freddie says he doesn’t do violence. The friend and Freddie go around trying to get the money. Priest visits his friend, Eddie, and talks about wanting out of the business. He talks of his plan for one more big run to leave with. Eddie doesn’t agree because he has the life he wants, but goes with the plan of getting 30 keys of coke to sell. Priest goes to his friend, Scatter, who has stopped selling coke, so refuses to help out. Priest wants access to his supplier, but Scatter says his supplier finds his own people. Scatter eventually agrees to help out. Freddie comes and gives Priest the money later and he gets some for himself and his girl. Priest goes home and talks with his girl, Georgia, as the bathe together. She wants in on his business to help out. Freddie gets caught by the cops as he’s beating a guy up. They hurt him until he reveals that he works for Priest. As they let him go, he runs away and dies after crashing into a car. Priest has a sparring session at the gym and also talks with Georgia about how he’ll leave the life. Priest goes to do a pick up and walks back when he notices some white men. They eventually catch up to him and Eddie and they’re the suppliers. They create a new relationship with him and one that is very profitable. Eddie loves what they’re into now while Priest is still trying to get out. Eddie argues that there’s nothing apart from this world they live in. Pictures show the increase in drug sales and how it’s doing well. Priest is hanging out with Eddie until a group of guys show up asking them to pay their dues and Priest sends them away. They are the black folks marching against the whites while Priest wants them to get guns to kill whites. Priest goes and hangs out at Cynthia’s place. He’s another one of his girls. Scatter visits her home and they bring him up. Scatter tells Priest that he’s no longer important for the supplier so they are trying to have him killed and won’t let Priest out of the business if Scatter is gone. Scatter provides Priest an envelope full of information of Reardon, their boss. The men capture Scatter an kill him by making it look like a drug overdose. Priest gets some money and hires white hitmen to take out Reardon’s family in case he is killed. Priest goes to Eddie and collects all their money into a bag. As he leaves, Eddie calls the cops to let them known about Priest and the money. While Priest is in the elevator, he switches the bag with another one that Georgia is holding as she enters in a disguise. She manages to get away with the money while the cops find Priest and take a hold of him until the detectives come get him. He is taken to the docks by Reardon, who confronts him about how he’s trying to leave the business. Priest fights them until Reardon holds him by gun point. Priest explains his plans to kill Reardon’s family and he is let go after they discover he doesn’t have the money on him. He is ensured his safety now.]
