I’m always going to have love for Martin the show and Martin the person because the show was reppin’ for HBCUs (and Detroit) from the beginning. From top: FAMU, a/k/a Florida A&M University (but y'all should already know. From the highest of seven hills, Rattlers stand up…then strike, strike, and strike again!), Alabama A&M, Morgan State, Grambling, Jackson State, Morris Brown.
Judge Turpin: Oh yes… such practices. The Geishas of Japan, the concubines of Siam, the catamites of Greece, the harlots of India. I have them all here, drawings of them. Everything you’ve ever dreamed of doing with a woman. Would you like to see?
Anthony Hope: I think there’s been some mistake.
Judge Turpin: I think not. You gandered at my ward, Johanna. You gandered at her. YES, sir, you gandered!
Anthony Hope: I meant no harm.
Judge Turpin: Your meaning is immaterial. Mark me! If I see your face again on this street, you’ll rue the day you were born.
