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


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


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.
Irene: Don't be ridiculous. I have the wedding all planned. The guest list is up to nine hundred.
Bobby: Great. Big crowd. You won't even miss me.

Lank: Mister. Do you see this gun?
Bobby: Ya?
Lank: It tends to have a mind of its own.
Bobby: [Looks at the gun, then at Lank] Vun out of two ain't bad.

Eugene: In our part of the world we have a few sayings for this sort of thing.Stiff Upper Lip.
Patricia!: Chin Up!

Bobby: [As Zangler, upon arriving in Deadrock to put on a show] So. Who vould like to audition?
[No response]
Bobby: To be in show.
[No response]
Bobby: To vork with girls.
Cowboys: [Erupting immediately] Yes sir! O-kay! Now you're talkin'!

Lank: You are close to an idiot!
[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.
Zangler: You see? Ve could be married already.

Everett: You know, I just love seeing you kids perform. That's how I got started. I tap danced for ten years.
Patsy: Wow! I get tired after ten minutes!

Bobby: Thanks.
Polly: What for?
Bobby: A lot of fun. A few broken teeth.
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?
