Michelle Pfeiffer: Velma Von Tussle
Velma Von Tussle : [singing] Those poor runner-ups/Might still hold some grudges/They padded their 'cups'/But I screwed the judges.
Velma Von Tussle : 'Detroit sound?' What's that? The cries of people being mugged?
Tammy : Are you scared we're on live?
Tracy Turnblad : No, I'm sure I can cope.
Amber Von Tussle : Well, this show isn't broadacst in...
Velma Von Tussle : I never drank one chocolate malt. No desserts for Miss Baltimore Crabs.
Amber von Tussel : I lost, Mom. Let's just deal with it!
Velma Von Tussle : [as she pulls the tallies out of her dress] You did not lose! You can not have lost because I switched the damn tallies!
Edna Turnblad : [standing behind a live television camera] Smile, Miss Crabcakes! You're on Candid Camera!
Wilbur Turnblad : That was a good shot! Don't you think?
Velma Von Tussle : [singing to Wilbur] You're gonna need more than some seltzer to put out this fire.
Velma Von Tussle : [disgusted] Oh!
[forces a smile]
Velma Von Tussle : Mrs. Turnblad! I'd know whose mother you were ANYWHERE.
[notices Edna's outfit]
Velma Von Tussle : Oh, let me guess - new dress?
Edna Turnblad : [nods, shyly but proudly]
Velma Von Tussle : Well... you'll stop traffic!
Edna Turnblad : [looks away, crushed]
Velma Von Tussle : It was nice meeting you... Tracy.
[struts away with Amber, as Edna starts crying]
Tracy Turnblad : Mama, don't you DARE listen to a word she says!
[Edna appears not to hear her]
Tracy Turnblad : Come on! She's just worried that I'm going to win the Miss Teenage Hairspray contest!
Edna Turnblad : [stops crying immediately and looks at Tracy, impressed] ... Really?
Velma Von Tussle : How can you taint a cancerous can of chemicals?
