I'm writing one great song before I... oh.

December 24, 1989, 9 PM, Eastern Standard Time. From here on in, I shoot without a script. See if anything comes from it, instead of my old shit.

Mark: Pookie.
Joanne: Shut up.

There are times, when we're dirt broke and hungry, and I ask myself "What the hell am I still doing here?" and then they call, and I remember...

You were the song all along, and before the song dies... I should tell you, I should tell you, I have always loved you. You can see it in my eyes!

Collins: Merry Christmas, bitches!
Mark: Yeah, fourteen hours later! What the hell happened to you?!

The music ignites the night with passionate fire.
