You're starting tonight.

Tonight? You'll be fine.

How did she do?

She's no butterfly.

Tony, she's all pelvic thrust.

I mean, she prowls. She's got it.

I wonder how she got it.

She certainly didn't learn it.

She learned it, but they don't teach it in any class.

Wait, you need more orange.

Let me do it.

How do you feel? Oh! Don't ask.

Who the hell took my makeup?

Monkey alert! Monkey alert! - No!

God damn it, Hector!

I'll get your costume.

Nomi, Nomi.

Did I do okay? Yeah, you did fine.

Your right leg extension needs work. Eight steps on the sweep, not six.

I'll have someone work with you tomorrow. Be here at noon.

Okay. - Put this on. You're done.

Yay! Yay!

I didn't fall.

You did. You nearly fell.

Yo. Can I talk to you a minute?

Come on, please.

Talk.

Alone.

I'll get the car. I'll be right there.

Yeah?

Who sent you the flowers?

None of your business.

Okay, look, I just wanted to say...

You and me ain't got no ties.

I have a problem with pussy.

I always have, always gonna.

But I meant what I said.

I'm not interested in your problems.

I did write it for you, But I did tell her I'd teach her I did write it and I did fuck her.

Who you fuck is your business, And I'm not making it mine.

It's not like I'm seeing any money For writing that number.

I may well touch a little pussy.

You ain't got nothing to say?

No.

Thanks for the flowers.

Tony said you did great.

I never got flowers before. Really?

Well, I'm sure you'll get lots of them.

He gave them to you?

Yeah, he did.

What is he, a pimp?

Only people I know got pimp cars are pimps.

He's the entertainment director.

That's exactly what I said... he's a pimp.

Hey, Nomes. Let's go.

Good luck with your number, James.

I'm sure you're gonna teach her To be a great dancer.

Hello?

Anybody here? Back here.

What are you doing here?

What am I doing here?

I'm doing some of the finest cocaine in the world, darlin'. You want some?

Mnh-mnh.

It's great for the muscles.

I told Marty I'd work on your turns with you, darlin', but I'm feeling a little turned inside-out myself today.

Cut the shit.

Okay.

We got off on the wrong foot.

You want to start dancing all over again?

Why? Why not?

You want to walk down to Spago, get something to eat?

Where is it?

Just down from Versayce.

Versace. Oh, right. Versace.

Yeah.

Right this way.

Enjoy.

I don't know what all this stuff is.

I'll order for you.

Don't they have Brown rice and vegetables?

Do you like brown rice and vegetables?

Yeah.

You do?

Sort of.

Really?

It's worse than dog food.

It is.

I've had dog food.

You have?

Mm-hmm. A long time ago.

Doggy Chow.

I used to love Doggy Chow.

I used to love Doggy Chow too.

I get a headache from champagne.

Oh, this isn't champagne.

This is holy water.

I named myself after this holy water.

Chrissie Lou Connors Used to have dingy brown hair And little bitty tits.

It's amazing what paint and a surgeon can do.

You have great tits.

They're really beautiful.

Thank you.

I like nice tits.

I always have. How about you?

I like having nice tits.

How do you like having them?

What do you mean?

You know what I mean.

I like having them in a nice dress Or a tight top.

Hmm.

You like to show them off.

I didn't like showing them off at the Cheetah.

Why not? I liked looking at them there.

Everybody liked looking at them there.

Made me feel like a hooker.

You are a whore, darlin'. No, I'm not.

We all are. We take the cash, we cash the check. We show them what they want to see.

Maybe you are a whore, but I'm not.

You and me... we're exactly alike.

Mnh-mnh.

I'll never be like you.

Miss Connors, sorry to bother you.

Would you sign this for me?

I'd be happy to, darlin'. What's your name?

Frank. I'm from Galveston.

I'm just a little old farm girl from Del Rio myself, Frank.

I told you she was from Texas. Look at that.

Could I have me one?

You want a girl to use up all her lipstick on you?

You want to dance?

Right now? It's now or never.

That's what Elvis said.

Know the best advice I ever got?

You're up there on stage, Hoping on a spot.

If someone gets in your way, step on them.

If you're the only one left standing there, they hire you. That's about it.

Thank you and good night, ladies and gentlemen.

Elvis has left the building.


You see, darlin'?

You are a whore.

Bitch.

I guess we're done.

Right here. Right here. Thank you.

Nicky, can I talk to you for a second? Sure.

Listen, after the show...

Coming through.

Mommy, can we see the monkeys? Not now. They're busy.

Please, they're so cute. They have to work.

What are they doing? I want to see the monkeys!

Why can't we see the monkeys?

Get these fucking kids out of here!

You said the "f" word.

She said the "f" word.

You said the "f" word.

Shut the fuck up.

Shh. It's okay.

It's okay. It's okay. Let's get out of here.

Nomi, there's a boat convention Coming into town next week. They need a couple of girls.

Nicky's doing it. You interested?

Pays $1,000.

$1,000?

To do what?

Just represent your hotel for a day...

Wear your costumes and your smile and they take your picture.

$1,000? Mm-hmm.

Yeah.

Great. Cristal here recommended you.

Thanks.

My pleasure, darlin'. Just looking out for you.

We got to talk about that magazine layout. Later, later, later.

Don't do it.

What? It's $1,000. Why not?

Molly, I need you. Yes, I'm coming.

I know some girls who've done it before. Molly, I'm waiting.

They didn't like it.

Did you do it before?

Yeah. Did you like it?

Did I like it? Sure, I liked it.


Let's hear it for these two beautiful girls From "Goddess," the new smash at the Stardust!

Thank you. Pardon me.

Hey, hey, guys. Shit, here he comes.

How's it going? Hi.

Tough gig, huh? Very tough.

This is my good friend Mr. Okida. He's from Bangkok.

He's one of our very, very high rollers.

Ladies, we got a great idea.

We want to take you girls to dinner after the show... have some lobster, hear Caesar sing.

You ever heard Caesar sing? Man, that guy's great.

You'll love him.

Caesar sing. Yeah, Caesar will sing, And then we'll go back to my place and we'll sing, Just the four of us.

How about it?

We sing.

Yeah, we'll sing a lot of songs.

Yeah? Okay.

Okay, good deal. Okay, good deal.

Not me.

Whoa. Excuse me. Hey!

Hey, hey! Be nice.

Get your hands off me!

You're getting $1,000 for this.

For this! This!

Hey, forget it. Just forget it. No harm done.

No damage.

Christ.

Is that right? Okay, tell me another one.

No, it's the truth. Come on, just tell me one more.

Zack. Yeah I want to talk to you.

Sure.

Let's go upstairs.

Did you have a nice day, darlin'?

No.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Jesus.

I'm sorry.

Some people just don't get it.

I'm on the stage.

Get me Phil Newkirk, would you?

Right. Thank you.

I want you to stay.

Yeah, the drop is up 32% on those 58 machines.

It's gonna make your bottom line about 250.

Right.

Okay.

I got an mba for this.

That's what this business has come to...

Cost-analyzing every slot machine.

What's an mba?

An mba is a degree...

Zack, you in here? Yeah.

Excuse me.

Hey, hey, hey. What's going on?

I ever hear this again you're out of here.

Zack, nothing happened. Yeah, something happened.

She's jumping to conclusions.

If that happens again to anybody, You're gonna jump to your conclusion Without your golden parachute.

You owe her an apology.

Nomi, I'm sorry. I apologize.

Yeah, fine. Okay.

Get out of here. Yeah.

Give me some juice on three and four.

An MBA's a degree you pick up in college.

It's mostly worthless in the real world.

Let's get an audio check.

You go for it, don't you?

Yeah, I try to.

Showtime.

That's for sure.

Bring both of those back up.

Phil, you dumb fuck, get back up here, would you?

I know. I know.

I want to thank you for looking out for me.

So nice of you to recommend me to Phil.

What are friends for?

Right.

Molly, you were right about the convention.

Ooh! Sweet baby.

Do that again, I'll break your fucking fingers.

I can't help it you don't have a gay partner.

Fuck you.

He wants everybody to see how hetero he is.

Molly, bring your flashlight.

I want to see how big it is.

You want a knuckle sandwich?

Aw, can I have mine anally, please?

Come on, you guys, stop. Jesus!

Is everybody here? Let's line it up.

What are you looking at, bitch?

All right, let's go. Let's move it. Go, go, go!


Oh, my god.

Whoa!

oh, my god. Are you okay, Annie?

Don't move. Is it broken?

It's my leg or something.

Tell me when you feel something.

Ah! It's her knee.

It isn't broken, is it?

Daryl, what happened?

My foot went out from under me.

Hey!

This is what happened.

I wonder how those got up there.

They probably came off a costume. we're gonna take you to the hospital.

Shit, no! - Jesus. Poor Annie. Tough break.

Let us through here, please.

Okay, see you later.

I'm the producer. It's my show.

I hired your show. You're my producer. You'll do what I say.

She was my understudy. I want a voice in this.

You can have a voice in this...

It is broken, kids.

Shit. That'll be three months.

At least.

Bad karma, huh?

Nomi, your mother's waiting for you.

My mother?

Well, for your sake, I hope she's not.

If a light sleeper can sleep with a light on, Can a hard sleeper sleep with a hard-on?

What do you call a tiger? A tiger's a big pussy...

Henry!

I can get shit on, but I don't like getting spit on.

Hi.- Hi, al.

You look like shit.

She looks better than a 10-inch dick, and you know it.

So, you like it here?

What, you think she's gonna miss you?

Yeah, why not? We miss her.

She misses us like that lump on my twat I had taken off last week. Oh, Jesus, Henry.

I saw the show.

You were good.

Thank you, al.

Real good.

You take care, kid.

Must be weird not having anybody come on you.

Nomi. You want a ride?

I got one. Okay, good night.

Wait.

You ever been in one of these? No.

I always wanted one.

Some car, isn't it? It doesn't suck.

All right. Where we headed?

You have to give me directions.

To your place.

Do you like Cristal?

I like a lot of different champagnes, But I always stick with champagne.

What's Andrew Carver like?

You nervous? Don't be.

I'm not.

I liked it when you came.

I liked your eyes.


Mmm. Oh!


Hey, stay with me.

I'll drive you back in the morning.

It is morning.

Please. I've got a taxi coming.

Send it back.

Cristal needs a new understudy.

There's an audition at noon.

You want to try?

Would you have told me about it If I hadn't come here?

It wasn't my idea to come here. It was yours.

I want to see you again.

We'll see how it goes.

What, the audition?

$10.50.

Thanks. Thank you.

Hello.

Mmm. I hate you.

Who was he? Zack.

Oh, my god. Did you tie him up?

Oh, shit. What?

I forgot to untie him.

Are you high?

Maybe a little.

Oh. I can't go to sleep now.

I've got an audition at noon. Where are the sugar snaps?

In the cupboard. Nomi, don't get sucked into it.

Uh-oh. Look what I found.

Okay, whatever, Nomes.


Julie.

She's not hot enough. She's got it down.

You can teach them to get it down.

She doesn't have Cristal's heat.

None of them have Cristal's heat.

I do love you, Gay.

Nomi's got heat.

Does she now?

Yes, she does.

In a totally different way, of course.

Come on! She's gonna take the lead?

This is a hotel show. This isn't the Cheetah.

Nobody's gonna take my lead anyway, darlin'.

I haven't missed a show in eight years.

You're not getting any younger, darlin'.

Eat me. You want to do it again with just Nomi?

No. Yeah, I do. Set it up, Marty.

This is bullshit. It's about your dick.

Nicky, Julie, thank you.

What do we know about her?

Nothing. I'm not even sure she gave us the right social security number. Find out, would you?

Find out what? Everything.

You fucked her, didn't you?

That piss you off because you're jealous, Cris, or because I beat you to the punch?


You fuck him for the spot or because you wanted to?

I say you did it for the spot.

Is that what you did, Cristal?

You don't want to piss me off Now that we're friends.

No, you shouldn't get pissed off.

It makes you look older.

Nomi. Yeah?

You got it.

I do? Yeah.

Marty and Gay are gonna work with you.

We'll get some glossies taken. You did good.

I'll call you for dinner.

We'll have some lobster. Did you ever hear Caesar sing?

You'll love it.

What?

Congratulations. I see you have many talents.

I thought she did good.


I didn't even know about the audition until afterwards.

Do you like my nails?

Not as nice as yours.

Maybe I'll help you with yours sometime.

If you want.

Isn't that nice of you, darlin'?

What are friends for?

On second thought...

I'm not sure I want you to do mine.

I'm getting a little too old for that whorey look.

I'll think about it.

Okay.

Close the door on your way out.


You gotta be shitting me! This is bullshit!

Hey, bring on the real dancers!

You suck! Get off the stage! Shit! Get off there!

All right! All right! Enough of this stuff.

Let's dance!

Hey!

Hey. - I loved it. It was good.

What are you doing here...slumming?

Heather! Hope!

Were we good?

You were great.

She dances like a truck.

I do not!

Do you want something to drink?

Yeah, get me a beer, bitch.

Look what I got.

It's beautiful.

I stole it from my grandmother.

You did not! You got it at a pawn shop.

We're getting married.

You love her?

I don't know. She's having a baby.

What about this?

We ain't any good. You heard them.

"get outta here! Get off the stage!"

What are you gonna do?

Work in a grocery store. Her mother owns it.

We'll get a discount on baby food.

See ya.

Shit happens, you know? Life sucks.

I'm a student of t-shirts.

Hey, Nicky.


Hey, excuse me. Wait! You cannot go...

What's going on?

What do you mean "what's going on?"

Hey, cool it, all right?

Cool it? You told me I got it, then sent me this?

I didn't have a choice. She threatened to walk, got her lawyers into it.

So what? - So she's a star. You're not worth it.

I'm sorry, Nomi. I tried. Fuck!

So basically, my g-string snapped.

So there I was, dancing butt naked for five minutes.

I mean, my poor partner.

Hey... I thought about it, darlin'.

You think you could do my nails now?

Oh, okay.

Maybe some other time.


Come on... Slave girl.

Ha ha ha! Let's go, go!

Run, run, run! Go, run, run, run! Go, go, run!

Go, go, run, go!

Aah.

You guys, let me through!

Oh, my god! Shit!

Cristal, can you hear me?

Somebody get Marty here!

Marty!

What the hell happened? I don't know.

Somebody get an ambulance now!

Who was behind her?

I was. What happened?

I don't know. She just went down.

She slipped. I saw it.

Nomi wasn't even close to her.

Tough break, huh?

What's the matter? Nothing.

Mm-hmm.

All right, thanks. Keep me informed.

Well, she's got a concussion.

That'll be all right.

But she's got a compound fracture of the right hip.

You know how long those take to heal?

We got to shut the show down.

Not a chance. The show goes on.

The Stardust is never dark. It's never been.

It never will be, not while I'm alive.

Who was her understudy?

Well, we had a girl who...

What's funny? Cristal Connors is a star, Sam.

You can't just replace her.

What if we could we just bring somebody in while she's recuperating?

She could be out a year. Like who?

Janet Jackson. Paula Abdul.

Paula Abdul. In my show?

We're not gonna pay those kinds of salaries.

In that case, We do what we do in Vegas.

What? We gamble.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Stardust proudly presents...

Miss Nomi Malone!


We could've brought anyone into this show... Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul.

Nomi Malone is what Las Vegas is all about.

She's dazzling, she's exciting, And very, very sexy. Thank you, Zack. - Yes, sir.

Miss Malone, how did you feel about the show tonight?

I just hope I can be as good as the show.

You are, my dear.

You are the show. Hear! Hear!

Miss Malone, please.

Come on, come on, over here, Nomi.

That's great, Nomi. One more. Please, please.

Congratulations, Nomi.

Hey, you ready to party?

Where? - The Paradiso. I rented out the bungalows.

For what? For you.

Yay!

Hurry up. I got a limo waiting.

I don't have anything to wear. Yes, you do.

Andrew Carver's coming. He saw the show. He thought you were great!

Did you hear that? Andrew Carver is gonna be there!

Yeah, I heard. Hey.

What's wrong with you?

You pushed her, didn't you?

No.

How can you talk that shit to me? Julie saw it.

She couldn't have seen it.

I saw Julie, and her back was to you.

She saw it.

Wow.

Okay.

Have fun at your party.

Molly, Molly! Come here, Molly!

You got to come. Andrew's gonna be there.

I don't care.

Molly...

It ain't a party without you.

Look at this and look at this.

Later. Where are the police?

They're not here. Why the fuck aren't they here?

Because they're not coming.

Don't do it...

Polly.

How did you find out?

You were busted for disturbing the peace at the Crave Club.

The police took your fingerprints.

I'm don't have to listen to this.

Yes, you do.

Polly Ann Costello.

Your father killed your mother, then killed himself.

You ran away from a foster home in Oakland, December 1990.

Arrests... Denver, soliciting. Stop it!

San Jose, soliciting. Cheyenne, soliciting.

Shall I read the rest of them, huh? Possession of crack cocaine.

Assault with a deadly weapon.

Tell me something... why did you stop hooking?

You had your future pretty well mapped out for yourself.

I did what I had to do.

Just like you did with Cristal.

I'm not a whore.

No, you're not.

You're gonna be a big star.

Your face is gonna be up on billboards.

And you're gonna make a lot of money for the Stardust.

You're not gonna let them get away with this.

Andrew Carver is at the paradiso this year.

But he might be at the Riviera next year or the Stardust the year after... he's part of a team. So are you.

What about Molly?

You like her? I'll make sure he gives her enough money.

She can have a dress shop.

Tell me something.

What did you charge?

Hooking.

$50.

$100 sometimes.

You got low self-esteem, baby.

You're a fantastic fuck.

I was paying you a compliment.


It's showtime.

Andrew Carver, please.

Hello, baby. Hi.

Lookin' good. He's ready for you. Thank you.

Didn't take you long.

No.

I like you better topless.

Wait till you see me bottomless.

I'm waiting.


Take the rest off.

Sure.

Next time I'll fucking kill you!

Okay. Okay, okay

Oh, man, no.

Fucker! Fuck off!

He says he wants to sleep.

Tired him out, huh? Yeah.

She's still out. It's the medication.

Is she okay?

She's okay.

Molly, Molly.

I just went to Carver.

I kicked the shit out of him.

I love you.

Cristal Connors, please.

Room 319.

You know the best advice I ever gave you?

If you're the only one left standing up there...

They'll hire you.

Thank you, and good night, ladies and gentlemen.

Cristal has left the building.

I'm sorry, Cristal.

Yeah, I know just how sorry you are.

How do you think I got my first lead?

There's always someone younger and hungrier coming down the stairs after you.

Why didn't you tell anyone?

Oh, hell, darlin'.

I needed a rest.

Besides my lawyers got me a real nice settlement.

I gotta go. Aren't you gonna come here and give me a big kiss?


Bye, darlin'.

Bye, darlin'.


Come on, hurry up!

Hop in, pard. This here's your lucky day.

Right.

Let's go.

So did you gamble?

Did you win?

What'd you win?

Me.

Oh, fuck.

It's you.

I want my fucking suitcase...

Asshole! Hey, wait a minute!
