View Quote Nina Cassotto Maffia: I heard you were going into politics. You still thinkin' about doing that?

Nina Cassotto Maffia: There's something about your past that I think it's finally time for you to know.
Bobby Darin: What are you talking about?
Nina Cassotto Maffia: It's about Polly. She wasn't who you thought she was, Bobby.
Bobby Darin: She was the best mother in the whole goddamn world. What are you talking about?
Nina Cassotto Maffia: She was a great mother because she was my mother, so I know it's true.
Bobby Darin: Than you take that back!
Nina Cassotto Maffia: No, she was a wonderful person and a wonderful mother. But what I think you really need now is the truth. The truth about your mother. And the truth is... Polly was not your mother. Sam was not your father. You ain't my brother, Bobby. [pause] We swore that we would never let you find out. Polly was my mother. Not yours. [pause] She was your grandmother. Sweetheart... [tearfully] I'm not your sister. [pause] Bobby, I'm your mother.
Polly Cassotto: We made a pact that we would never tell you.
Little Bobby: Is she kidding?
Polly Cassotto: She got pregnant when she was seventeen.
Nina Cassotto Maffia: [tearfully] It's true, Bobby. I didn't want you to be a bastard, so I gave you to momma, so that way no one could call you one.
Polly Cassotto: She couldn't give you up for adoption.
Nina Cassotto Maffia: When I went off to the hospital, when it was time for you to be born. Momma moved us to the Bronx where we didn't know nobody. And then when I came back, we said you were her baby, not mine. But that way I could keep you.
Little Bobby: Do you realise what you're saying to me?
Polly Cassotto: We did it to protect you, Bobby.
Nina Cassotto Maffia: You need me now. I can really be here for you. You're lost. You can finally have the mother that you never really had.
Little Bobby: Who was my father?
Nina Cassotto Maffia: Oh, Bobby. I was dating a lot of guys back then.
Little Bobby: [angrily] Who was my father?!
View Quote Polly Cassotto: [playing the piano. To young Bobby] You know, before your sister was born. This is what your momma did for a living. Music opened a whole new world to me. No matter how bad I feel. No matter how sad or sick I am, I just touch these keys. Like magic, I always seem to feel better. I've always known you had talent, Bobby. This piano is for you. Charlie worked hard for it. See God wouldn't've made you suffer so much if you weren't gonna make up for it later. [sings] How happy you can be. Up a Lazy River with me.
View Quote Steve "Boom Boom" Blauner: [interrupting a tender moment] Bobby! Whoa, sorry. But I was right about the war picture. Get your speech ready 'cause as soon as this tour is over, you're going to the Oscars, pal. You just got nominated.

Sandra Dee: I'm not bringing the baby on the road.
Bobby Darin: Well, then leave him with the nanny, that's why we hired her.
Sandra Dee: I don't want Dodd to be raised by the nanny.
Bobby Darin: He's not going to be raised by the nanny and what am I going to do on the road? Who am I going to sing to if you're not there?
View Quote [to Sandra Dee] You know, I was right about you. You're gonna be easy to love.
View Quote [voice over] Momma was right about music. It opened a whole new world to me, outside of time and illness. The world I could live in.
View Quote [voice over] Sandy and I just got off on the wrong foot. If I could just get her away from her mother. I mean just imagine: Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee. That's it. I'm gonna start all over, like we've never met. Only this time, I'll romance her the best way I know.
