Bobby[edit]

[Sung]
Bad news go 'way!
Call 'round some day
In March or May -
I can't be bothered now.

Polly[edit]

[Sung]
I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man --
Who could ask for anything more?

Dialogue[edit]

Bobby: I'm here to audition.
Zangler: Not now!
Bobby: Mr. Zangler! You don't understand. When I go to your office, they throw me out.
Zangler: Good. I give them a raise.

Irene: We have been engaged for five years. Now when are we getting married?!
Bobby: We're not.
Irene: Of course we are.
Bobby: Oh no we're not.

Bobby: Great. Big crowd. You won't even miss me.

Lank: Mister. Do you see this gun?
Bobby: Ya?

[Bobby looks at him, then takes a giant step away]
Lank: That isn't funny.

Everett: Invest in something. Start a --- casino.
Lank: Don't be stupid! Who would come to Nevada to gamble?!

Zangler: Tessie! I have come three thousand miles just to be vith you! [He starts kissing her arm and works his way to her neck.]
Tess: Stop it, stop it. Would you - Oooooh. [She's momentarily turned on; then gets a hold of herself] Bela, how many times do I have to tell you?! I don't enjoy your company, I'm bored when I'm with you, and I don't find you even remotely attractive.

Bobby: A lot of fun. A few broken teeth.
[Sung]
The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The memory of all that --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!

Mrs. Child: Where's your head?!
Bobby: Deadrock.
Mrs. Child: I didn't ask what's in it.

The Girls: [Sung] The man who only lives for making money
Lives a life that isn't necessarily sunny;
Likewise the man who works for fame --
There's no guarantee that time won't erase his name
The fact is
The only work that really brings enjoyment
Is the kind that is for girl and boy meant.
Fall in love -- you won't regret it.
That's the best work of all -- if you can get it.

Polly: You wanna dance, Bobby?
Bobby: Who could ask for anything more?
