Quote of the Day: The Last Dragon

TITLE: LAST DRAGON ¥ PERS: TAIMAK ¥ YEAR: 1985 ¥ DIR: SCHULTZ, MICHAEL ¥ REF: LAS016AB ¥ CREDIT: [ THE KOBAL COLLECTION / TRI-STAR/MOTOWN ]
Sho’nuff: Well, well, well. If it ain’t the serious, elusive Leroy Green. I’ve been waiting a long time for this, Leroy. I am sick of hearing these bullshit Superman stories about the – Wassah! – legendary Bruce Leroy catching bullets with his teeth. Catches bullets with his teeth? Nigga please.

Leroy Green: The secret awaits eyes unclouded by ambition.

Sho’nuff: WHAT?

Leroy Green: Those who are bound by desire see only that which can be held in their hands.

Sho’nuff: See, now it is mumbo jumbo like that, and skinny little lizards like you thinkin’ they the last dragon that gives kung-fu a bad name. Get up, Leroy, I got somethin’ real fo’ yo’ ass in these hands.

Happy 54th birthday to Taimak!!!
