Can I give you a lift?

- You got a car?

- No.

How you gonna give me

a lift? Stand me on a box?

- We could share a taxi.

- Forget it. I don't share fares.

I'm a lady.

Furthermore, I'm broke.

- Who said share fares?

- No?

No. I wouldn't dream of it.

- You wouldn't?

- I thought you'd pay.


Let's walk.

It's a nice night.

You shouldn't walk at

night. It's dangerous.

We'll be okay. We

got your baseball bat.

Quit the "we" bit.

You mean, I'll be okay.

- Which way you going?

- Which way you going?

- This way.

- Then I'm going this way.

Let me take that.

No, it's all right.

Look, beat it, will you?

- What have you got in here?

- Just a few books.

Few books? You

should start a library.

You should shut your mouth.

- Have you eaten?

- Ever since I was a kid.

- How come you're so skinny?

- Because I watch my weight.

I do that when I'm broke,

too. How about eating now?


- Why not?

- I'm not hungry.

- Not hungry?

- No.

I'm starving.

That's more like it.

- Goodnight, Fizzy.

- Goodnight.

- Goodnight, Fizzy.

- Goodnight.



Take it easy.

Don't do that, Knuckles.

It's how I got my name.

Knock it off or

change your name.

Tallulah, how long

we got to wait?

Coming. You don't want me

looking a mess, do you?

Snap it up, will you?

Put your flaps down,

or you'll take off.

You spend more time

prettying yourself than anyone.

If I didn't look this good,

you wouldn't look at me.

I'll see you in the car.

What about my audition?

Tomorrow, Fizzy. I'm tired.

Lots of important business.

I have to go home.

I promise you, tomorrow.

Goodbye. Goodnight.

- You coming, Velma?

- Sure.

- Goodnight, Fizzy.

- Goodnight, Miss Tallulah.

Oh, my purse.


Tomorrow never comes.
