: I'm not lost. Somebody just moved my street.
: I'm Cammie, the Russian tease. Violet
: Violet, the Jersey nun. Cammie
: That one's Rachel, the New York bitch. We all play our little parts. Only Rachel really is a bitch, and I really am a tease. Lil
: Cammie, you can only be a tease if you stop sleepin' around, babe. Cammie
: Yeah, I keep forgetting that part!
: Hi. I'm Violet Sanford. I just recently moved to New York and I was wondering if you would give my tape to one of your artists. Wendy
: Violet, that is so cute! Now lemme tell you about me. My name is Wendy and I first moved to New York when I was 21 to be a dancer, but I broke my big toe and then I got knocked up by this actor who dumped me to join the Peace Corps, so for the last 16 years I been raising my daughter all by myself and then two weeks ago, she tells me that she is a bisexual and that she hates me more than any person on this planet.
: Now tell me how I can help you, please, because I am dying to make *your* dreams come true.
: Cammie, I think I just fell in love with you. Cammie
: Oh Violet, I'm not a lesbian. I played in the minors but never went pro. Violet
: That's *not*, what I meant.
: That's Rachel, you can learn a lot from her. Violet
: She just cut some guy's ponytail off. Lil
: Yeah, the court ordered her to take anger-management classes after she pummeled a customer for grabbin' her ass. He pressed charges, I gave her a raise. Cheers!
: I don't mean to press my luck, but would you mind telling me why you're hiring me? Lil
: Because, the, um, average male is walking around with a toddler inside of his pants, a two year old right there inside his dockers. Violet
: Men have two year old children in their pants - that's why you're hiring me? Lil
: You look like a kindergarden teacher. The kids'll love it. Violet
: Sorry I asked.
[Kevin kisses Violet then starts to walk away
: Have a nice day! Violet
: "Have a nice day"? Kevin
: Yeah, I panicked, I didn't know what else to say!
: What do you want? Kevin
: Well, it's, uh, 3 in the morning, I want what every man wants.
: You said I could be whatever I wanna be. Bill Sanford
: I never said "Songwriter in New York City."
: Let me guess: Piedmont, North Dakota. Violet
: South Amboy, New Jersey. Lil
: Same thing.
: I'm married to that bar. Hell, I'd, uh, I'd sleep there, if I had the guts to walk around barefoot. But that's me, you know. I'm the original coyote. Just a small town gal trying to make it in the big bad city. Violet
: Small town gal? Lil
: Piedmont, North Dakota. You ever tell anyone that, I'll kill ya.
: I'm a songwriter, is there someone here I can talk to about my songs? Fiji Mermaid Waiter
: I've been a struggling sax player for 12 years. What can I get you from the bar?
: Okay, I've never had anyone stare at my ass for half an hour, so I'm gonna say goodnight, and I'm hoping you're gonna say it back.
: Look, are you really the owner? 'Cause I've had a rough couple of days and so the last thing I need is some waitress on a power trip wastin' my time. Lil
: You start Friday night.
: Oh, right, we don't talk about you, right? It's a big secret. Come on, Kevin, let's play a game. I'm gonna guess why you left Australia. Kevin
: Doesn't matter. Violet
: You were in jail? No that's not it. You have a wife and four kids in Sydney? Come on, am I getting warm? Come on, Kevin, I don't have alot of time. Why'd you run away from home? Kevin
: I didn't have a home! Is that what you wanted to hear? I don't have a family. I mean that's the big secret! Are you happy? Huh? Are you gonna feel sorry for me now? Are you gonna hold me close while I tell you I had to change homes every 2 years? I had a bad childhood, big deal. I don't need your sympathy! 'Cause I'm here and I'm livin' on my two feet like I wanted to. That was my dream. At least I did it with a little bit of dignity. Violet
: And I didn't, that's it? Kevin
: Well just unbutton the blouse a little and unzip the pants a little, show a little bit of flesh. I think you can figure it out.
: I want my tape. Kevin
: Had a feeling you'd be back to see me. Manager
: No dates in the kitchen, O'Donnell. Violet
: I'm not staying. I-I just want my tape. Please.
[he hands her the tape
: Thanks. Bye. Kevin
: Did you really write all those songs? Violet
: You listened to my tape? Kevin
: No, of course not, I mean, that would be invasion of privacy.
: Baby you're the right kind of wrong. Violet
: Go ahead. Laugh it up. 'Cause there's nothing you can say that's gonna bother me. Kevin
: I'm just trying to tell you I like your music. I mean, do you always take compliments so well?
: You collect comic books? That's so cute. Kevin
: It's not cute... it's very rugged and manly.
: This is my job! Kevin
: It's a goddamn sandbox for you to stick your head in! Violet
: What is that supposed to mean? Kevin
: The place is a joke, alright? They don't come to watch you sing, they come to watch girls shaking it on a bar!
: [on seeing Rachel, Cammie and Zoe for the first time
] You know those girls? Romero
: Oh, yeah. They're here every morning around this time. Winding down. They have to in their line of work. Violet
: Are they hookers? Romero
[passes Violet a matchbook
: I told ya not to break the rules. Violet
: What are you talking about? Lil
: I'm talking about you and your boyfriend making a scene in my bar. I'm talking about a friend of mine inside with a broken nose. The rules were simple, Jersey. I fired girls for a lot less. Violet
: What, so I can't have a boyfriend, now? What kind of stupid shit is that? Lil
: Hey, this place is my home. And I'm not willing to risk everything I have on your personal life. It's business, plain and simple. Violet
: This is not business. I work my ass off for you and you're supposed to be my friend! Lil
: I never said I was your friend. I'm your boss and you knew the rules like everybody else. Violet
: Will you stop with "the rules". It's a bar for Christ sake! Lil
: [hands Violet her guitar
] Then what are you so upset about?
: Do you have a reservation? Lil
: Uh, yeah, it's under, uh, "Cast Iron Heartless Bitch." Violet
: Could it be under "Stubborn and Pigheaded"? Lil
: Yes! That's the one.
: Why won't you give up on this? Kevin
: Because I've been giving up on people my entire life and it's a nasty little habit, so you're going to sing at the club or... Violet
: Or you'll what? Kevin
: I'll never kiss you again. Violet
: That sounds like a threat, Mr. O'Donnell. Kevin
: Well, let's just say it's going to be quite a long, cold winter. Violet
: That's supposed to convince me? Kevin
: It's working, isn't it? Your knees are getting weak.
: Alright, you win. I'll do it. Kevin
: I love winning.
: What do you do when you realize all your dreams have come true? Violet
: Pay off old debts.
