Cry-Baby (1990)
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: [to Allison] Heavy hangs the head, that last night wore the crown.

Baldwin: You think you're a big man, Cry-Baby, but you're lower than your dead father! And guess who pulled the switch on that jerk? My grandpappy, that's who! And every Christmas since, my whole family gathers together and he retells the story of the day he electrocuted your daddy, and we just laugh!
Hatchet Face: Let me punch his ugly face!
Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker: It's okay, Hatchet. You're beautiful, baby. But I'll take care of this maggot! Do you know how to play the automobile game called Chicken?
Baldwin: Sure! My car and your jalopy! We head toward one other at full speed. First one to turn the wheel before we smash is a chicken!
The Judge: Is that legal?
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Stop this insanity!
Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker: I got some new rules, sucker! How 'bout you and me on top of the car?
Baldwin: [hesitates] I'm man enough, you big cry baby!
Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker: That's "Mr. Baby" to you! Fellas of the press, this chicken race tonight is for my daddy. And I'd like to sing something in his memory. Something hill-billy... something colored!
[Baldwin groans]
Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker: Something my daddy would have loved!

Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the annual RSVP Talent Show.
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Good afternoon, Mrs. Vernon-Williams.
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: First, I must apologize for my frazzled nerves. However, this afternoon we were attacked by a gang of juvenile delinquents.
[audience gasps]
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: It's alright. No one was injured. Juvenile delinquents are everywhere. Right here in this community. Boys with long hair and tattoos who spit on the sidewalk. Girls who wear tight slacks. Hysterectomy pants, I call them. And if one of these creatures ever approach you on the street, you are to silently repeat to yourself the four "B's" you learned here at RSVP. And what are they, children, the four "B's"?
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Beauty, brains, breeding and bounty!

Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Baldwin, please be a gentleman and call off this race. It's too dangerous!
Baldwin: Mrs. Vernon-Williams, you were born a square and you're gonna die a square. You're coming with me!

Cry-Baby: I can sing pretty good.
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: 'Well,' not 'good.' Haven't you *ever* heard of the English language?

Cry-Baby: I'm gonna sing tonight and thought she might like to hear it.
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Baldwin, mind your manners.
Baldwin: This is what we think of your kind of music
[punches him]
Allison: How dare you hit him? You don't own me, Baldwin. I have the right to hear Cry-Baby sing.

Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Your Honour, I am Allison's grandmother.

[everyone cheers]
Baldwin: We'll get married and live in Suburbia. I love you Allison
Allison: I don't want to hurt you Baldwin.
Lenora Frigid: [snatches toy baby away from little girl] I had my baby. Isn't he cute? I'm a square now. Wave to Allison.
Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: You may be a square Lenora, but you're still a tramp.

Mrs. Vernon-Williams, Allison's Grandmother: Allison, pick the man who loves you the most.
