The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989)
Beau Bridges: Frank Baker
Frank Baker : Okay, let's hear it. We trashed the Avedon, the Luau Lounge - what's our beef with 'Feelings'?
Susie Diamond : Nothing... except who cares? I mean, does anybody really need to hear 'Feelings' again in their lifetime? It's like parsley, okay? Take it away, nobody's going to know the difference.
Frank Baker : 'Feelings' is not parsley!
Susie Diamond : Frank, to you 'Feelings' may be goddamn filet mignon, but to me, it's parsley. It's *less* than parsley.
Frank Baker : Look, 'Feelings,' despite what you may think of it, has always been one of the bright moments of the show, and a consistent crowd-pleaser, and consequently we have an obligation to perform it. If we didn't, the audience would be disappointed.
Susie Diamond : Oh. Well, they weren't exactly crying their eyes out on New Year's Eve.
Frank Baker : You passed over 'Feelings'?
Susie Diamond : Yeah. Oh, and 'Bali Hai' went out with the bathwater, too.
Frank Baker : Ah ha. I see. The cat goes away for the night, and the mice take over the orchestra.
Susie Diamond : Hey! I ain't no mouse.
Frank Baker : That's right - you're parsley.
Susie Diamond : Oh no, not the goddamn Luau Lounge again!
Frank Baker : What's the matter with the Luau Lounge? They don't salt their peanuts?
Susie Diamond : Singing 'Feelings' knee-deep in paper orchids and plastic tiki lamps is not exactly my idea of a fun evening.
Frank Baker : Fun? Who promised you fun? We get paid, remember!
Frank Baker : Jesus, when was the last time we played the Mallory?
Jack Baker : '78, November.
Frank Baker : Right, it was someone's birthday... Halloran?
Jack Baker : He had a daughter, sweet sixteen.
Frank Baker : Oh Christ! How could I forget? What a nightmare!
Jack Baker : She asked for it!
Frank Baker : I told Halloran we didn't do vocals, and he said, "What my Sissy wants..."
Jack Baker : "My Sissy gets!"
Jack Baker : [Leering] She got it, all right!
