Quotes

Apollonia: Will you help me?

The Kid: No.

Apollonia: Pardon me?

The Kid: Nope... Wanna know why?

Apollonia: Nope.

The Kid: Because you wouldn't pass the initiation.

Apollonia: What initiation?

The Kid: Well, for starters, you have to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Apollonia: What?

The Kid: You have to purify yourself in Lake Minnetonka.

[She strips down, and runs towards the lake]

The Kid: Hey! Wait a minute! That's...

[She jumps in. She gets out shivering]

The Kid: Uh, hold it...

Apollonia: What?

The Kid: That ain't Lake Minnetonka.

Morris: Your lips would make a lollipop too happy.

[after jumping in cold water, Apollonia is getting dressed and The Kid rides up to her]

The Kid: Come on, let's go.

Apollonia: I'm not going anywhere, that was a rotten thing to do.

The Kid: I'm sorry. I tried to stop you.

[She looks at him]

Apollonia: I must have looked pretty ridiculous.

The Kid: No, no! You looked great. That took some nerve, I wouldn't have got in that water. Come on.

[She attempts to get on the motorcycle, he drives away]

Apollonia: Hey!

The Kid: Come on.

[She attempts to get on the motorcycle again, he drives away again]

Apollonia: COME ON!

The Kid: OK, ok.

[She gets on]

The Kid: Don't get my seat all wet.

Matt Fink-The Revolution: God got Wendy's periods reversed. About every 28 days she starts acting nice. Lasts about a weekend.

The Kid: I'd like to dedicate this to my father, Francis L. It's a song the girls in the band wrote, Lisa and Wendy.

[the Revolution performs "Purple Rain"]

[Watching his girl group rehearse a dance routine]

Morris: Oh, Lord. Cut! Cut!

[pause]

Morris: You ladies don't seem to realize how valuable my time is. You're going to make my boys look bad!

Jill: Why don't you let us come up with our own steps?

[Jerome shakes his head violently]

Morris: We tried that, remember? Now, you're in the best possible position you could be in. So what's the matter? Your shoes on too tight or something?

[Claps]

Morris: Let's have some action! Let's have some asses wigglin'... I want some perfection!

[Cackles, cues music]

Morris: [Girls start dancing again, more seductively]

Morris: [watching; sotto to Jerome] I think I'm gonna need a drink.

Jerome: What.

Morris: Say the password, onion head!

Jerome: The password is what?

Morris: [frustrated] That's what I'm asking you!

Jerome: [more frustrated] It's the password!

Morris: The password is it?

Jerome: [exasperated] Ahhhhh! The password is what!

Morris: It! You just said so!

Jerome: The password isn't it! The password is?

Morris: What?

Jerome: Got it!

Morris: I got it?

Jerome: Right.

Morris: It or right?

Wendy-The Revolution: [Playing ironically the melody of "Let's Go Crazy" on the guitar] You like that ? Is that better?

The Kid: [Vexed] Where is everybody?

Lisa-The Revolution: You're late. They left.

The Kid: So what are you doing here?

Lisa-The Revolution: [Parodying the Kid's speech at the beginning of "Let's Go Crazy"] "But I'm here to tell you, there's something else"... Our music.

Billy: [irked by the Revolution's performance of "Darling Nikki"] What the fuck wrong with you, Kid?

The Kid: I ain't got time for your bullshit, Billy. What do you want?

Billy: This stage is no place for your personal shit, man!

The Kid: That's life, man.

Billy: Life, my ass, motherfucker! This is a business, and you too far gone to see that yet! I told you before, you're not packin' them in like you used to. No one digs your music but yourself.

The Kid: FUCK OFF!

Billy: Yeah, okay. Just like your old man.

[Kid gives Billy an offended look]

Billy: Look around you. No one's diggin' you. Oh, buddy, what a fuckin' waste. But, like father, like son.

The Kid: Lay off that.

Billy: Let me give you a piece of advice, junior: your music make sense to no one... but yourself.

The Kid: [referring to Appolonia's anklet] Gimme that... There on your boot.

Apollonia: [removes the anklet and gives it to the Kid, who then walks away with a smile] Hey, wait!

[walks after him]

Apollonia: Give it back to me!

The Kid: You can have it back later.

Apollonia: I want it back now, okay?

The Kid: Who gave it to you?

Apollonia: A person.

The Kid: Male or female?

Apollonia: Huh?

The Kid: [stops and turns around] You're lying. I can tell just by your reaction, you're lying. So you gave it to me; it's not yours anymore.

[smiles and walks away]

Jerome: [also irked by the "Darling Nikki" performance] That was fucked up, what you did, man. Morris doesn't like it, and I don't like it either.

The Kid: I don't care.

Jerome: It's obvious you don't have what it takes to get to the top. But just to show we're sympathetic to your problem...

[throws tickets to Kid]

Jerome: ... here's two tickets to tonight's show. Enjoy.

[walks off, then pokes his head back in the door]

Jerome: Don't forget to bring a girlfriend.

[blow kiss]
