Cry-Baby

Synopsis: Allison is a "square" good girl who has decided she wants to be bad and falls hard for Cry-Baby Walker, a Greaser (or "Drape" in John Waters parlance).

[alarm ringing]

Get your cigarettes. Penny a piece.

Six for a nickel.

Ah, you owe me from

yesterday, young man.

Please, look, look,

I'll pay you tomorrow.

Wouldn't you like to have one?

Oh, come on, just a drag.

[Snickering] Just a drag!

No cash, no tobacco. Go on, scram.

Hey, Mona!

Get over here and help your poor mother.

[Coughing]

[People chattering]

Hi, kids.

Remember, always look

both ways before crossing.

Mother!

We're having your favorite

supper tonight, Wanda.

Potatoes au gratin.

(all) Mmm.

Now walk.

Look left, look right.

That's right, then walk. Good teenagers.

Are you gonna work this summer?

##[Music playing on car stereo]

(Hector) Wanda, honey.

You want a ride home with Dad?

I got a lift. Thanks, anyway.

We could count

out-of-state license plates.

I saw one this morning all

the way up from Virginia.

Dad, would you just leave me alone?

Bye, honey.

(woman) # O look,

daddy, you're so cool #

# But I can't break my momma's rules #

# She would have to see

what's in your family tree #

# Before she would let

you come home just for me #

(man) # Oh, you

thinking about marriage #

# Now and then #

# Oh, you goin' pretty steady #

# Now and then #

I am so tired of being good.

# Well, I think I'm ready #

# This is what you need #

# Do you have plenty money? #

# Yes, I do #

# Tell me, is it all in cash? #

# Just for you #

# Will you give me all your lovin'? #

# If you're true #

# Then I will love you long as well #

Hi.

Well.

You're a pretty little Square.

Want to hang out with us Drapes tonight?

[Groaning]

Allison Vernon-Williams,

get in this car.

What's the trouble, honey?

These hoodlums bothering you?
