The only reason you're looking | at this guy is because you can't have him.

He's a rock 'n' roll | poet sex god.

You'll toss him in a week.

No, Ing, this one's different.

I can feel it.

That was good.

Kid, I haven't heard | blue-eyed soul like that

since Jeff Buckley's record.

See what I'm sayin'?

What did I tell you, Roma? | He's smokin', right?

You did good, Huey. | - I need eight hours, Mom.

If I don't get eight hours, | my immune system crashes.

Record something more up-tempo | I can get on the radio.

Let's go. | - Work it out with Huey.


That's what I'm talkin' about. | She gets it.

I get it. | You don't get it.

Wait... | - Neal, you need to get it.

I think we got ourselves | a Grammy!

I hate that...

Kids! Always hogging | your attention.

Hi. | - Hi. Birthday girl.

Yeah, happy birthday. | - Thank you.

Is this demo thing for real?

She's about to sign you! | I can feel it in my bones.

Rocket to the moon, baby. | Rocket to the moon.

Oh, my.

Are you really | Tommy Gunn's daughter?


Can you hold my purse, please?

Yeah. | - Thanks.


I guess there is | a certain family resemblance.

His guitars are in there? | - You wanna come see?


Can you just wait here | just one second, please?

Thank you. | - Yeah.


Welcome | to Le Chteau Chez Molly.


What on God's earth is that?

Mu. | - Don't you mean oink?

No, "Mu" means "pork" in Thai.

He was going to be my curry dinner | one night in Bangkok,

but we fell in love.

If you wait here,

I will fix us some | bonbonnires confiseries.

Oh, my God.

Looks like you found it | on your own.

I can't believe it!

This is it.

This is the acoustic Muddy Waters | gave Tommy Gunn.

He played it at Budokan. | - Summer of '88.

Daddy's little girl
