All right!

It's time to get serious, man.

We are serious.

What are you talking about?

Squash that. What are you giving me?

Give us more snare in the speakers

and we'll be all right.

Ready to roll.


Do it right this time.

I want rock 'n' roll, baby.

That's more like it.

That's what I'm talking about.

All right, my boy.

Krush Groove.

Yeah, you got it.

Get a box, take this downtown.

Homey, move it! We ain't got all day.


That's it.

You stay off that car!

You're fired!

Fired? We quit!

Wait! I'll take back the music.

Who's going to clean the cars?

Those boys are def. They are def.

We'll be big once we play the Fever.

Let me tell you something.

They all started that way.

Kurtis Blow, Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde.

Yo, once you get on that mike

at the Fever, it's like magic!

The Fever! That's all you talk about!

- So what's the matter with that?

- I just don't want to do it, that's all.

All you care about

is stuffing your fat face, right?

Don't you want to be a star?

Krush Groove. Yeah, hold on a second.

Yeah? Okay, how many?

Okay, you got it.

You'll get them as soon as I get them.

Krush Groove is now rolling.

I know you wanted them last week.

I'll get them to you soon.

I'm sorry, man.

Hopefully by the end of the week.

Yo, I took 100 orders today.

They all want it yesterday!

I have 60 more over here.

It's happening just like I told you.

- Just like you told me.

- Right.

We're selling records we don't even have.

A hit record is the worst thing

that could've happened to us.

- I don't know what you're thinking.

- That's minor.

We have no money.

We can't press any more records.

It's for you, Rick.

I'll get the money. Just chill. Trust me.

This is Rick.

You'll get your record tomorrow.

Why do you tell people that?

If you're worried,

tell your old man to get up here.

If not, I'll take care of it. All right?

I'm tired of your nonsense.

You think this is a joke.

Why don't you get out? Just get out.

Hey, man, relax.

We're getting ready to get paid, cuz.

That's enough!

Now everyone just calm down

and pay attention.

Dissecting the fetal pig is very important.

It counts for 75%% % of your lab grade.

So if you're groaning now...

...keep clowning around and you'll really

have something to groan about.

Once you have your specimen open...

...I want you to identify

the following muscles:


Let's step, man. This is boring.

This is weak.


Who has a radio in this class?

Speak up.


It's you. The fat one! Stand up!

I said stand up.

Oh, wise guys!

Report to the principal.

What did we do?

Out of my class, now!

You want to play like that?

You all get "F" for fetal pig.

Yo, forget that teacher, man.

Come on. I got an idea!

We ain't got all day.

- Come on. Let's go.

- What's up, man?

Disco Three!

It's almost time, man. Almost time.

Joey, for God's sake. Turn that box off!

If you have no respect for my ears,

at least have some respect for the church.

It's my new record.

What do you think about it?

It's a lot of screaming and noise,

it's not music.

Russell says it's the hottest record.

Russell? That big dummy?

He dropped out of college in his

senior year and you rely on his judgment?

Take your hats off in here.

What's this I hear

about you quitting your car wash jobs?

You don't understand.

Me and D are stars now.

We can't be working at no car wash.

You wouldn't see Lionel Richie

working at no car wash.

Now you are Lionel Richie,

and you're Prince.

And here comes Berry Gordy.

Tell him we're stars.

Yeah, my homeboys are superstars now.
