We're looking around (Gonna have us a time tonight)
Check check checking it out

JAMES "THUNDER" EARLY: Marty? Marty!
I said no mayonnaise!
How many times have I told you no mayonnaise on the chicken sandwich?

MARTY: ...Thousands, Jimmy. Now eat it.

JAMES "THUNDER" EARLY: I'm forced to baby, 'cause I'm starving.

MARTY: You've got a bigger problem. Charlene and Joanne just walked.

JAMES "THUNDER" EARLY: Just walked? Just walked!
They can't do that to Jimmy! I need backup!

MARTY: Yeah, you do.
And not only for tonight...what about the ten week tour starting tomorrow?

JAMES "THUNDER" EARLY: Marty, you got ten minutes to deliver, or else.

MARTY: Jimmy...you've already gone through every girl on the circuit.
I warned you to lay off the women you work with!
You got plenty of other women out there.

JAMES "THUNDER" EARLY: There sure are, but who's got time to go out lookin'!
I'm always workin'!

MARTY: Yeah...'cause Marty always keeps you working.

LITTLE ALBERT AND THE TRU-TONES: Check, check, checking it out!
Checking it over
Checking it out
Checking it over
Checking it out
I'm....Checking it over
Checking it out.......(continuing in background)

DEENA JONES: Oh no...no! They have the same wigs we have!

LORRELL ROBINSON: We're ruined unless we can find new wigs.

EFFIE WHITE: Why do we need wigs in the first place?

DEENA JONES: Because, we need a look...I got it! ...Turn the wigs around.

LORRELL ROBINSON: ...What?

DEENA JONES: Turn the wigs around!

LORRELL ROBINSON: Oh Deena, it's so...different.

DEENA JONES: It's sophisticated-looking.

EFFIE WHITE: Front-ways or back-ways, wigs ain't natural.
And what about these dresses?
I mean, this dress does NOTHING for my body.

DEENA JONES: Effie, my mama spent three weeks sewing up these dresses.
Shoot, they helped us win that contest in Chicago.

EFFIE WHITE: Big deal, so we won three albums we already had.

C.C. WHITE:
I'm going downstairs now, and hand this music out to the guys in the pit.

DEENA JONES: Hey, C.C., do you really think we're gonna win?

C.C. WHITE: ...We're gonna win.

(EFFIE, DEENA, and LORRELL shout about how they're going to win)

LITTLE ALBERT AND THE TRU-TONES: We're going downtown!
To check check check out the sights!

ANNOUNCER: Let's hear it for Little Albert and the Tru-Tones!
Weren't they fabulous? Now, put your hands together for Tiny Joe Dixon!

DEENA: Oh, we're next!
