[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?

(Allison) No, no, we were just talking.

Grandmother, Baldwin,

this is Wade Walker.

They call me Cry-Baby.

This here is my sister, Pepper.

Greetings, Granny-o.

Allison's my girl, so

hands off, Cry-Baby.

You could have fooled me, Square.

Mrs. Vernon-Williams, I hear

you're having a talent show

at your charm school today.

I can barely imagine

what you would call music.

I can sing pretty good.

"Well," not "good."

Haven't you ever heard

of the English language?

Don't go flip out, mama.

Yeah. Sometimes shook-up old ladies

get cut.

(Baldwin) Come on, honey.

They're just bums.

Mr. Puniverse wants a fat lip.

I'd like to hear you sing.

(Grandmother) I will say

this once and once only.

Stay away from my granddaughter,

you common juvenile delinquents.

It was nice talking to you all.

# Just you and me #

# Go see our father #

# Just you and me #

# Tell our sisters and our brothers #

# Just you and me #

Let's go.

[All cheering]

# That you're going to marry me ##

The prettiest and most

talented girl in school

and yet she socializes with Drapes.

We're Squares, Allison, and

Squares got to stick together.

Yeah, but Drapes are people, too.

They just look different.

Maybe Cry-Baby can sing.

Something cool, something hep.

And where did you learn

those vulgar jazz words?

Your poor dead parents would

turn over in their graves.

It's those jukebox

records she listens to.

Honey, his kind of music

isn't even on the Hit Parade.

How can I think when

you're always touching me?

I have told you, Baldwin,

a young lady does not like to be pawed.

[Laughing]

##[Women and Cadillacs by The

Nite Riders playing on car stereo]

# The woman want a Cadillac

she don't want no man #

# I used to have a woman,

said she loved me so #
