Takin' The Long Way Home TINY JOE DIXON: Baby, I’m taking the long way home
Cause my baby don’t live there no more

MARTY: Excuse me ladies, you’re singers, aren’t you?



DEENA JONES: We’re the best. We’re the Dreamettes.

LORRELL ROBINSON: We’re featured in the talent show.

MARTY: Ladies, I’ve 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 don’t do backup.

DEENA JONES: Oh, come on Effie, all we’ve gotta do is a few ooh’s and aah’s.

EFFIE WHITE: I don’t do ooh’s and aah’s.

LORRELL ROBINSON: Now, you look, Effie, this could be our big break…
and I’m just dyin’ to meet “Thunder” Early! (giggles)

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

MARTY: You think so, do you?

TINY JOE DIXON: No more….

ANNOUNCER: Come on ladies, you’re on next. What’s the name of your group?

DEENA JONES: The Dreamettes! The Dreamettes.

EFFIE WHITE: …I can’t wear this wig. And this dress doesn’t fit me!

LORRELL ROBINSON: You got the same wig I got?

EFFIE WHITE: …Yeah.

LORRELL ROBINSON: You got the same dress I got?

EFFIE WHITE: Yeah…

LORRELL ROBINSON: Then shut up.

CURTIS TAYLOR, JR.: Say, Miss…I think you look just great.

TINY JOE DIXON: I’m walking slow…
‘Cause my baby don’t live there no more!

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

DEENA JONES: It’s the Dreamettes! The Dreamettes!
