Don't play, we've got people here.
If I gave you $1,000,000|would you be mad at me?
- Sure!|- You would?
Still? That's a beautiful dress|you've got on.
It is. You know, I can see them...|Sexy.
Think I won't keep it?|I will keep it. Believe that.
I know you will take it.
There you go.|One, two, three...
...four, five, six, seven, eight.

Guys like you aren't relationships,|you're exercise.
- Don't you want to stay for breakfast?|- No, I'm not hungry.
- What's wrong?|- Nothing.
I just want to get something|going today.

It's like you're invisible.
They make you feel|like you're wasting your time.
Why be down on yourself?|You know what you can do.
You've been doing choruses|for six years.
Don't you want to do something|that's all you?
A woman's dancing career|is half as long as a man's.
So I have half as many chances|as you of making it.

- See you later.|- Will you come tonight?
- It's the last show.|- I don't think I can make it.
- Why the excuses?|- What excuses?
