TINY JOE DIXON: Baby, Im taking the long way home
Cause my baby dont live there no more

MARTY: Excuse me ladies, youre singers, arent you?

DEENA JONES: Were the best. Were the Dreamettes.

LORRELL ROBINSON: Were featured in the talent show.

MARTY: Ladies, Ive got the break of your lives.
The great Jimmy Early is in need of some backup help

LORRELL ROBINSON: Ooooh, Jimmy Early!

EFFIE WHITE: No. No, we dont do backup.

DEENA JONES: Oh, come on Effie, all weve gotta do is a few oohs and aahs.

EFFIE WHITE: I dont do oohs and aahs.

LORRELL ROBINSON: Now, you look, Effie, this could be our big break
and Im just dyin to meet Thunder Early! (giggles)

EFFIE WHITE: You look, singing backup is a trap.
Im sorry mister, but we cannot accept your offer.
You see, were going to be very busy after we win this talent contest.

MARTY: You think so, do you?


ANNOUNCER: Come on ladies, youre on next. Whats the name of your group?

DEENA JONES: The Dreamettes! The Dreamettes.

EFFIE WHITE: I cant wear this wig. And this dress doesnt fit me!

LORRELL ROBINSON: You got the same wig I got?


LORRELL ROBINSON: You got the same dress I got?



CURTIS TAYLOR, JR.: Say, MissI think you look just great.

TINY JOE DIXON: Im walking slow
Cause my baby dont live there no more!

ANNOUNCER: And now, straight from Chicago, the Creamettes!

DEENA JONES: Its the Dreamettes! The Dreamettes!
