I bought Mojotone Quiet P90s to install. Single braided wiring 50s style.
The guitar has quick connect.
HELP! Now what do I do to install the new pickups?

It would probably be worth just going ahead and replacing the harness while you’re replacing the pickups. Plenty of inexpensive nice ones available out there. If you don’t want to do that, or if you’re in a hurry, you can just snip the quick connectors off the stock pickups and splice them onto the new ones. You can make part the braiding separate like this:

You mean TV Yellow Special ? I haven't seen a Jr in TV Yellow yet.

You'll have to solder the pup directly to the pots.

There was a Junior Special in TV yellow with P-90s and a TOM bridge.
Gibson names its guitars any way it wants to :D

I had one with the quick connect and I just disconnected and soldered '50s style to the existing pots. It was pretty easy. You can find a wiring diagram with a search.

There were Gibson versions in cherry and TV Yellow. 2012-ish
I thought it was an odd name for what's mostly a Special. OTOH, I wouldn't buy a Junior or Special with a TOM ;)

Gibson Junior Special
Could be, but the OP is asking about an Epiphone.

For $200 I wasn't fussy about it being with a wraparound or a TOM. And sacrilege ... it has a bolt-on neck ! ! ! And a clear finish that really shows the grain.

As mentioned above, just desolder the quick connect from the pot. If you look at how the quick connect is connected to the pot, it's no different than just one hot and one ground. Just ignore the quick connect - it's basically just an extension.
