Celie is coming with us.
ALBERT
What?
SHUG AVERY
Celie is coming with us to Memphis.
ALBERT
Over my dead body.
SHUG AVERY
You satisfied? That what you want?
ALBERT
[to Celie] NOW what's wrong with you?
CELIE
You a low down dirty dog, that's what's wrong. Time for me to get away from you and enter into Creation. And your dead body'd be just the welcome mat I need.

More than anything God loves admiration.
SHUG AVERY
No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.
CELIE
You saying it just wanna be loved like it say in the Bible?
SHUG AVERY
Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved. Us sing and dance and holla just wanting to be loved. Look at them trees. Notice how the trees do everything people do to get attention... except walk? Oh, yeah, this field feels like singing!

CELIE
[lunging towards Albert with a knife] I curse you. Until you do right by me everything you think about is gonna crumble!
SOFIA
Don't do it Mrs. Celie. Don't trade places with what I been through.
SHUG AVERY
Come on, Celie, let's go to the car.
SOFIA
He ain't worth it, he ain't worth it.
ALBERT
Who you think you is? You can curse nobody. Look at you. Your black, you're poor, you're ugly, you're a woman, you're nothing at all!
CELIE
Until you do right by me, everything you even think about gonna fail!
GRADY
It's been a pleasure meeting all of you. Good-bye.
