It’s okay to be a little different
Monica (Sanaa Lathan) was very much a tomboy when she and her family moved in the neighborhood. She got in on a street game of basketball with Quincy (Omar Epps) and his friends and quickly showed him that she was not one to mess with on the court. Remember how quickly he took notice of her? He did ask her to be his girlfriend like a couple days later (though they broke up within two minutes AND had a fight).
