Iooking like a broke-down Superfly.

No. No, Superfly's little brother.

Right, right. Superflea.

- Ow! - Be still then!

Shoot, you said you wanted

these pompoms, so you got 'em.

Girl, we need to move on...

and we need to get us some new jobs.

Hey, what's up, kids?

Idalis kickin' it MTV style.

Listen, y'all, I got the inside scoop...

on the biggest video audition

to hit the airwaves...

since the artist formerly

known as Prince...

was looking for that special girl

for his video...

The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.

Remember that?

Well, Heavy D is doing

a unique video himself.

He's going to be shooting this video

all over the world...

in beautiful, exotic places

like Brazil and Italy.

He's looking for that oh, so special girl...

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Go back.

A great body, a great smile...

and that twinkle in her eye.

He's looking for...

- Look! - Huh?

So, that's the same audition!


I think it's a sign from God.

My mama always told me

good things come in 3.

I heard it on the radio,

now read it in a magazine...

and now it's on TV!

This is it, Mick!

Nisi, you buggin'.

But what if I ain't?

Come on, Mick. Let's go to L.A.

Let's do it.

Hell, yeah...

'cause there ain't nothing

but some fine young rich men in L.A.

I feel like partying right now. Come on.

Partying? We've got to try to

save every penny now.

Uh-uh. It's Tuesday night.

You know what that means.

Ladies night at the Gold Tooth.

We get in free!

Go, go. Git it, git it.

Go, go. Git it, git it.

I want everyone to have their I.D.s. Ready.

It's just so ridiculous.

Everybody in here want to be a player,

pimp, hustler.

Not me.

I just want a simple woman.

That's you. I'm telling you it's you.

Oh, really?

You're very special to me.

You see, I never met nobody like you
