Mike McCoy!

You're all wet.

I saw you last night at the Crazy Club.

You sing great.

- You could have got me killed.

- You sure killed me.

Oh, and what you do with a song.

Do you know it was all I could do

to keep from jumping up on the stage.

Knock it off, will you?

You just demolished me and you're

there yapping as if nothing happened.

- You're cute.

- No, you're cute.

The way you sing, the way drive,

the way you get mad.

Mike, I really go for you.

Honey, I'm just about to go for you.

I can hardly wait.

If you're not gone in three seconds,

I'll put you over my knee...

I'll paddle your bottom

until it's as red as that jalopy.

But I'm only wearing...

That's good, because

you're gonna feel it, too.

So long, Mike, for now.

"So long, Mike, for now."

Thank you.

This is our last night.

It's really been great

here in Santa Barbara.

In fact, I don't know when

we've had such a good time...

singing, that is.

Anyway, we'd like to thank you

for your hospitality...

and we hope you'll ask us back.


- They're a great audience.

- We were pretty good, too.

- You were wonderful, Mike.

- Would you pack my things, buddy?

I'd like to check out the Cobra

before we take off.

- Sure, Mike.

- Thanks, pal.

- My pleasure.

- We'll see you in the car.

Don't be too long.

- I'll be seeing you, baby.

- Yeah, sure.

Excuse me, baby. Sir.

- So long, anyway.

- Mr. McCoy?

- Yeah.

- I'm Howard Foxhugh.

- Of Foxhugh Motors?

- That's right.

You put out great cars.

That Foxhugh Whiplash of yours,

that was a good car.

- Thank you.

- I raced against it once.

I know. I saw you in that race.

You were pretty good.

Thank you. I'll be seeing you.

- Model J Duesenberg, '29, right?

- Yup.

When I was a kid this was one of the most

powerful cars around.

It still is.

They sure don't make them

like that anymore.

A Cobra 427.

That what you race in?

I did until this morning.

Some squirrel ran me off the road.

Mr. McCoy, my secretary tells me

you turned down my offer.

- Your offer?

- $2,500.

That's a lot of money

just to sing one song.

- So you're the kook.

- I'm the kook.

My daughter's birthday is on the 15th.

I want you to give

a private performance just for her.

I thought it was a gag.

You mean you'd pay all that money

for one song for one little girl?

After all, it's her birthday.

- Why don't you get her a teddy bear?

- She wants you.

- That's very nice, but...

- I'll make it $3,000.

We'll take it!

- Divided by four, that makes...

- Four goes into $3,000...

$750 each.

Is that dollars?

I'll expect you at my home on the 15th.

We'll give you the best performance

of our lives.

Boy, is your kid lucky

to have a daddy like you.

Congratulations, sir.

You bought yourself a great group.

- I'm sure I have.

- He hasn't bought one thing.

I'm sorry, mister. We can't make it.

- Why can't you make it?

- Yeah, why can't we make it?

Because Mike says so, that's why.

We have to be in Los Angeles on the 15th.

- I can take care of that.

- Don't take care of anything.

They're expecting me on the 15th,

unless I break a leg, I'll be there.

You're a man of your word, I like that,

but I am a man of my word, too.

I promised Cynthia you'd sing for her,

and you will.

Who knows? You may even enjoy it.

There's nothing I enjoy more than

singing for a girl.

But it's gotta be one that I pick...

not somebody who's paying me.

- Sorry, Mr. Foxhugh, we can't make it.

- I'll make it $5,000.

Four goes into $5,000...

You divide the quotient

from the logarithm...

and then you subtract the factor.
