Tracy, you know This heart only beats for size Daddy, you know what velma wanted. She wanted me off the show. And I knew that, but how could she go that far? Come here. Come here, little girl. Little girl. And then to just cancel Negro Day like that.

I think people like me are gonna have to get up Your mother and I We don't see too far past our front door. But you So, if there's something you need to stand up for We need to learn some new tricks You don't need new tricks, Dad.
You need Mom. She changed the locks. Good night, Daddy. Aw, wow. Come on, baby. Honey, took me 5 years How could I ever? Well, she is very glamorous. She just makes me feel old. You're spry as a Slinky. I'm not talkin' to you. Styles keep a-changin', the world's rearrangin' But, Edna, you're timeless to me Hemlines are shorter, a beer costs a quarter But time cannot take what comes free You're like a stinky old cheese, babe Just gettin' riper with age You're like a fatal disease, babe What?
But there's no cure, so let this fever rage Some folks can't stand it, say time is a bandit But I take the opposite view 'Cause when I need a lift Time brings a gift Another day with you A twist or a waltz It's all the same schmaltz With just a change in the scenery You'll never be old hat That's that You're timeless to me Fads keep a-fadin' Castro's invadin' But, Wilbur, you're timeless to me Hairdos are higher Mine feels like barbed wire But you say I'm chic as can be You're like a rare vintage ripple Thank you.
A vintage they'll never forget So pour me a teeny-weeny triple Any time! And we can toast the fact we ain't dead yet What? I can't stop eating Your hairline's receding Hey. And soon you'll have nothing at all Never. So you'll wear a wig While I roast a pig Hey! Pass that Geritol I love pig.

You're gonna pay a heavy price. I know. You'll never dance on Tv again. If I can't dance with Seaweed and Little Inez I just want tomorrow to be better. Amen, amen! That's right.
Tracy, hon, you don't know what you're doing. Yes, I do, Ma. Hello, Miss Maybelle. Well, good evening, Miss Edna. Nice-a you to join us. She's got a lovely turnout. Now I really think they don't need you anymore. You come home with me. No, we are not sending a camera crew.
They're protesting our own station, dimwit. Why is Channel Five there? Well, of course they're all Negroes. And why would-? I know who would. Oh, I know exactly who would. Tv's got to integrate! Oh, my God, no! The sound's not working. You knew there'd be police.
Oh, I cannot be seen on television at this present weight. Is there some reason we can't pass by peacefully? I strongly suggest you and your little friends Hey, you don't have to be so rude. It's all right, Tracy. I can handle this. She was talking to you. Tracy, no. You just assaulted a police officer, miss.
All right, boys. Let's take the whole lot in. And our cameras also caught Tracy Turnblad Miss Turnblad brutally attacked a sergeant You see? If I let you leave the house That Tracy Turnblad always was a bad influence. Well, you are never, ever gonna see that beehived harlot again. OK, Mother. Pray for her. She's gonna need it. She's not here, I told you. Hon, she knows What this must-a put you through, Wilbur.
I'm so sorry. You're not? I'm proud-a you. You are?
Baby, somebody had to do somethin'. Bail for 20's kind of pricey. You bailed all those people out?
Ya upset with me? Hon, it just seemed like the right thing. Oh, Wilbur, it was the right thing. Knights in armor don't come any shinier than you. But where's our little girl? Are you OK, Trace? Oh, you have no idea.
Thank you so much. You're such a great friend. Penny, the cops are looking for me everywhere. You could go to jail for helping me. Tracy, I'm already in jail. Oh, no. Oh, let it. It was just a symbol of my conformity to the man. You are so tough. So, what do ya think?
Maybe you could live down here. I don't even know why we have this room down here It's very well-insulated. It won't be where you're going. The police are on their way. Mom, please don't send my best friend to the big house. Penny, hush. You haven't heard the last of me, Mrs.
Things need to change I don't care how long it takes. Good, you'll be waiting 20 to life. Get the jump rope, Penny. Mom, not the jump rope! Don't you touch my canned tuna. You wait till your father gets out of prison.
You'll see more than a jump rope, missy! A massive manhunt is underway for Miss Turnblad Mike Morris with a crowbar, shattering his jaw That is a lie. They're talkin' about our baby, Wilbur. They're tellin' lies. Sergeant Morris is in critical condition. This is such a Midol moment. Wilbur, that-Oh! Maybe that's her. Oh, that's her. Is that you, Tracy? I thought you'd be Tracy. Uh, no. L-I was just at home, uh I can't believe Tracy savagely bludgeoned an Eagle Scout.
That's just not like her. Well, it's not true, I was there. He didn't even bleed. I shoulda been there I can't sleep, I can't eat. You can't eat?

Let me out at the next toll! Without love Life is like a prom that won't invite us Without love It's like getting my big break and laryngitis Without love Life's a 45 when you can't buy it Without love Life is like my mother on a diet Like a week that's only Mondays Only ice cream, never sundaes Like a circle with no center Like a door marked "do not enter" Darling, I'll be yours forever 'Cause I never wanna be Without love Yes, now you've captured me Without love I surrender happily Without love Oh, Seaweed, never set me free No, no, no I ain't lyin' Never set me free No, no, no No, I don't wanna live without Love, love, love Pretty Penny little Darling, you had best believe me Never leave me without love Link.
