The guys I go out with

don't want passes.

They just make them.

Speaking of passes, I've been

knocking down so many lately,

I feel like an All-American.

Get a load of them lilacs.

Dearie, them

ain't no lilacs.

Of course not.

Those are snapdragons.

On her, they look good.

Hi, Peg.

Hi, Bubbles.

Like it?

It's lovely.

You know, you could have

something like that, too.

That party still wants to meet you,

and he's awfully generous.

Why don't you go away

and leave Peggy alone.

I'll speak for myself.

Oh, the voice of the turtle,

finally coming out of your shell.

Oh, go crawl back

into the woodwork.

Why, you gray-haired old hag.

Shut your mouth,

or I'll slap it shut.

Oh, no, you won't.

Oh, no?

Call my mother an old hag.


Hey! Let go!

Hey, what's going on here?

Break it up. Break it up.

Break it up.

Cut it out, will you?

What do you think this is,

Madison Square Garden?

She ain't going to get away with this!

Just get her out of here, that's all.

Okay, okay. A fine thing, fighting

like a couple of alley cats.

What are you trying to do,

give burlesque a bad name?

Well, if you think...

I'm not supposed to think.

I'm the stage manager.

My job is to get this show on.

Now, beat it onstage,

all of you.

Can't you hear the overture?

Come on, places, everybody.

Come on, now, fix your

make-ups and get up there.

Ever see anybody hurry you so?

All rushed about.

Oh, your wig, Mother.

You, too. Get dressed.

Who are you ordering around?

What do you want me to do,

say please?

I ain't one of your stooges.

Okay, so you're the big attraction for

this cookie, and you get top billing.

So if you'd have stayed in your dressing room and let

these kids alone, there wouldn't have been no trouble.

So the show

is about to start.
