Virgil Tibbs: Ever since that woman came to town, Bubba
(sigh)
Virgil Tibbs: ... I think he's in over his head. She's a beautiful, sophisticated young woman and Bubba, well...
Althea Tibbs: You can't understand what she sees in him.
Virgil Tibbs: In a word, No.
Althea Tibbs: Let me try to explain this to you Virgil. Bubba is a HUNK. He's manly, he's strong, he's considerate and just rippling with muscles.
Virgil Tibbs: Althea, Althea, you're a married woman.
Althea Tibbs: Hey I'm married, I'm not blind.
Virgil Tibbs: Well, if Bubba's a hunk, what does that make me?
