Man: IT'S ONE OF MUSIC'S BIGGEST NIGHTS.

Woman: ONE OF THE MORE ANTICIPATED ARRIVALS THIS EVENING IS THAT OF WHITNEY HOUSTON.

I'M HERE IN DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES AT THE SHRINE AUDITORIUM...

Woman: SHE'S NOMINATED TONIGHT FOR BEST R&B SOLO PERFORMANCE.

Man #2: IN FOUR SHORT YEARS, SHE HAS SOLD OVER 30 MILLION ALBUMS, HAD SEVEN NUMBER-ONE SINGLES IN A ROW --

NOW THAT'S TOPPING THE BEATLES, THE ROLLING STONES, AND ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET.

AS YOU CAN HEAR FROM THE SCREAMS OF THE CROWD, SHE'S STEPPING OUT NOW.

WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?

YOU'RE WHITNEY HOUSTON.

WELL...YOU DON'T SEE ME WITH A TROPHY IN MY HAND TONIGHT, DO YOU?

YOU DESERVED IT. NO, COME ON.

I'M HAPPY FOR MY GIRL ANITA.

ANYWAY, PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF SEEING ME GET PRIZES.

I DON'T BLAME 'EM.

SOMETIMES, EVEN I GET SICK OF HEARING ABOUT MYSELF.

WOW, HUMBLE, TOO.

WELL, LISTEN, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT AWARD SHOWS, BUT I CAN'T STAND TO LOSE.

CAN I LET YOU IN ON A SECRET?

SURE. ME EITHER.

YEAH. YEAH, YEAH, THAT SOUNDS MORE RIGHT.

YEAH. [ LAUGHS ]

LISTEN, I'M NOT SICK OF HEARING ABOUT YOU.

ARE YOU A FAN, THEN? OH, HELL, YEAH.

HOW MUCH THEY LOVE YOU. IT'S GREAT. [ GROANS ]

SOMETIMES I WISH THEY'D LOVE ME JUST A LITTLE BIT LESS.

PLEASE. NO, YOU DON'T.

COME ON, SERIOUSLY, YOU GOT TO BE DIGGING THIS.

WHAT I DON'T DIG IS PEOPLE THINKING THEY KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT ME WHEN THEY DON'T.

SURE, BUT YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO FORGET ABOUT YOU, EITHER.

HEY!

THAT'S SO SWEET.

THIS PLACE IS HUGE.

PLEASE TELL ME YOU DON'T LIVE HERE BY YOURSELF.

NO, ROBYN LIVES WITH ME.

ROBYN?

ROBYN. ROB-- ROBYN!

HE MADE IT!

[ CHUCKLES ]

SHE'S MY BEST FRIEND SINCE I WAS 16.

SHE RUNS MY BUSINESSES.

HEY, HOW YOU DOING? GREAT PARTY, DARLING.

THANKS FOR COMING.

HEY, HEY. GOOD TO SEE YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABY.

ANYWAY, WE JUST MOVED IN.

BEEN BUILDING IT FOR A WHILE, AND...

I BET YOU DON'T KNOW HALF OF WHAT'S HERE.

I KNOW I HAVE A MOVIE THEATER AND A RECORDING STUDIO AND --

Woman: NOW, YOU KNOW I'M COMING TO GET A HUG, GIRL! HEY!

HOW YOU DOING, GIRL?

THANKS FOR COMING. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

YOU WANT A TOUR?

Man: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WHITNEY!

♪ YOU HAVE JUST WHAT I NEED ♪ HEY. KEEP THE PARTY GOING.

♪ YOU -- YOU -- ♪

♪ OHHHH ♪

♪ YOU GOT THAT ♪

♪ HE-E-E-Y ♪ WOW!

LOOKS LIKE YOU ROBBED THE WHOLE DAMN STORE.

YEAH, KIND OF AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES, I GUESS.

GREAT SETUP. [ SNIFFS ] YEAH. HERE.

NAH, I DON'T DO THAT.

REALLY? BOBBY BROWN?

[ CHUCKLES ] LOOK, I'M NOT SAYIN' I DON'T PARTY, BUT I'D SEEN TOO MANY BAD OUTCOMES, AND I WORKED TOO HARD TO GET WHERE I AM.

[ SNIFFS ] IT'S JUST FOR FUN.

COME ON.

THANKS. I'LL STICK WITH THIS.

THIS IS GIVING ME A LOT OF IDEAS FOR THE STUDIO I'M BUILDING.

[ GASPS ] THAT'S RIGHT.

I HEARD YOU WRITE YOUR OWN STUFF.

OH, I'D LIKE TO DO THAT SOMEDAY. GIRL, WHY NOT?

YOU SHOULD NEVER GET SO BIG, YOU CAN'T MESS AROUND WITH WHAT YOU LOVE.

MAYBE WE'LL WRITE SOMETHING TOGETHER.

[ BOTH CHUCKLE ]

OH, YOU PROBABLY GET PEOPLE SAYING THAT TO YOU ALL THE TIME.

NO.

WHAT I MOSTLY GET IS SONGWRITERS SAYING "SING MY SONG."

WELL, THE WAY YOU BELT IT OUT, YEAH, "SING MY SONG!"

WELL, I GET THAT FROM THIS LADY RIGHT HERE.

MOMMY TAUGHT ME PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING I KNOW.

SHE WAS MY CHOIR DIRECTOR.

OH, YEAH, I BEEN THERE. WHAT, YOU SANG CHOIR?

SINCE I WAS 3. [ Laughing ] WHAT?

SAW JAMES BROWN SINGING GOSPEL, AND AFTER THAT, I WAS HOOKED.

BUT, YOU KNOW, TEACHING ONLY GOES SO FAR.

IT'S YOU THAT WON ALL THIS, NOT YOUR MAMA.

HEY, I BET I MUST BE THE 100th GUY THAT'S TOLD YOU HOW NICE YOU LOOK TONIGHT.

AM I RIGHT?

MAYBE A FEW MORE.

WELL, THEY LIED.

YEAH, NICE DOESN'T DO IT.

UP CLOSE, YOU'RE SO FREAKIN' BEAUTIFUL, I CAN'T STOP LOOKING AT YOU.

[ CHUCKLES SOFTLY ]

MOST GUYS DON'T USUALLY FOLLOW UP LIKE THAT.

TRUTH IS, SOMETIMES I THINK I SCARE MEN OFF.

MAYBE THEY DON'T LIKE STRONG WOMEN.

OR MAYBE THEY JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE YOU --

NOT LIKE BOBBY BROWN WOULD.

OH, YOU SOUND PRETTY SURE OF YOURSELF.

[ CHUCKLES ] I HAVE TO BE.

I GOT NO MARGIN FOR ERROR.

WHERE I COME FROM, THERE'S ONLY TWO WAYS OUT --

EITHER DEAD OR IN JAIL.

I SAW MY BEST FRIEND KILLED IN FRONT OF ME WHEN I WAS 11.

FIRST THING I DID WHEN I GOT SOME BANK, I BOUGHT MY MAMA A HOUSE IN A REAL NICE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I GOT A BIG FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF, AND I MEAN TO DO IT.

TELL ME ABOUT IT.

HOLD ON.

[ CHUCKLES ] "SPARKLE"?

W-W-WHAT? YOU KNOW IT?

HELL, YEAH, I KNOW IT. IT'S A CLASSIC.

WHEN THAT MOVIE CAME OUT, I MUST HAVE SEEN IT 20 TIMES.

I MEAN, ALL THE OTHER BLACK MOVIES WERE "SUPER FLY," "SHAFT," "THE MACK,"

AND THERE WAS IRENE CARA JUST...BELTING IT OUT.

YEAH, IRENE CARA.

SHE WAS SOMETHIN'.

WASN'T SHE? [ CHUCKLES ]

WHAT?

YOU'RE JUST NOT WHAT I EXPECTED.

YOU'RE NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, EITHER.

REALLY?

YEAH.

I USED TO THINK THAT YOU WERE SOME KIND OF GODDESS.

BUT NOW I CAN SEE THAT YOU'RE WAY MORE THAN THAT.

I CAN SEE THAT YOU'RE REAL.

GUESS WE SHOULD PROBABLY HEAD BACK OUT.

YOUR GUESTS GONNA START TO WONDER WHERE YOU WENT.

[ HORN HONKS ]

BYE-BYE.

HELLO!

[ CHUCKLES ]

HOW'S MY FAVORITE STAR? DOING GOOD.

SHOULD I GET YOUR USUAL FOR LUNCH TODAY, MISS HOUSTON?

HAMBURGER AND FRIES. THANK YOU, RUTHIE.

YOU GOT IT. [ CHUCKLES ]

UNH, UNH, UNH. NOT IN MY OFFICE.

WHITNEY, YOU NEED TO PROTECT THE VOICE.

AND, UH... STAY AWAY FROM YELLOW.

WHAT? YEAH.

SERIOUSLY?

MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A CANARY.

[ CHUCKLES ]

NOW WHITE... NOW, THAT'S GOOD FOR YOU.

OH, AND, BY THE WAY, WHAT'S THIS I'M READING ABOUT YOU AND EDDIE MURPHY?

[ SIGHS ] WE ARE JUST FRIENDS.

WE WENT ON A COUPLE OF DATES IS ALL.

ANYWAY, THERE'S SOMEONE ELSE I'M INTERESTED IN NOW.

MM? MM-HMM.

JUST STAY OUT OF MY BUSINESS, OKAY?

FINE. FINE.

SO [CHUCKLES] WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM.

I WAS THINKING I'D LIKE TO GIVE 'EM A LITTLE DIFFERENT KIND OF FLAVOR.

WHITNEY.

YOU ARE THE GREATEST VOICE OF YOUR GENERATION AND THE BIGGEST STAR ON THE PLANET.

I DON'T WANT TO CHANGE A WINNING FORMULA.

CLIVE, YOU KNOW I'VE ALWAYS DONE EVERYTHING YOU'VE ASKED.

NOW I'D LIKE TO EXPRESS MYSELF A LITTLE MORE IN THE MUSIC.

I THINK MY AUDIENCE CAN HANDLE IT, AND I KNOW SOME OF 'EM ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW.

I TELL YOU WHAT.

I JUST BROUGHT A NEW TEAM INTO THE ARISTA FAMILY --

L.A. REID AND BABYFACE.

MAYBE THEY CAN WORK ON THE NEW ALBUM.

THOSE ARE THE GUYS THAT DID BOBBY BROWN'S, RIGHT?

EXACTLY. YES! ALL RIGHT.

THAT'S -- THAT'S THE FLAVOR, RIGHT?

ALL RIGHT, YES, THE FLAVOR. [ LAUGHS ]

YOU'RE A VERY SHARP YOUNG LADY.

OH, YEAH? YEAH.

IN MY CANARY YELLOW?

EH, I FORGIVE THE YELLOW FOR THE FACE.

OH, OH, OKAY.

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

OH, MY GOD.

WHEN I WAS A KID, ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS SING.

YOU KNOW, I USED TO HIDE OUT IN THE BASEMENT AND DRESSED UP IN MY MOMMY'S GOWNS AND SING ALONG TO A RECORD PRETENDING I WAS MY COUSIN DIONNE OR ARETHA OR GLADYS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND DADDY WOULD BE POUNDING ON THE FLOOR SCREAMING AT MOMMY, "CAN'T YOU STOP THAT NOISE?!"

AND THAT'S WHEN SHE MADE ME GO SING IN CHURCH.

SHE SAID, "IF YOU CAN DO IT FOR GLADYS, YOU CAN DO IT FOR THE LORD." [ LAUGHS ]

I USED TO DANCE TO MICHAEL.

I USED TO PUT GLITTER ALL OVER MY SNEAKERS.

I PUT SO MUCH ON, YOU COULDN'T EVEN TELL WHAT BRAND THEY WERE.

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

MY MOM USED TO GET SO MAD.

SHE'D SAY, "ROBERT BARISFORD BROWN, BOY, NOW I KNOW THEM AIN'T THE SHOES I BOUGHT YOU LAST WEEK."

OKAY. [ LAUGHS ]

BUT I THOUGHT I WAS PRETTY FLY.

YOU'RE STILL PRETTY FLY.

IT'S EASY TO TALK TO YOU.

YOU TOO.

ALL RIGHT.

BREAK IT TO ME GENTLY.

I HEARD YOU HAVE KIDS.

[ CHUCKLES ] TWO.

I LOVE 'EM.

AND I TAKE CARE OF MY RESPONSIBILITIES FOR 'EM.

BUT BACK THEN, I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WANTED.

A CASE OF THE BIG HEAD BEING LED BY THE LITTLE ONE, I GUESS.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

BOSTON. WITH THEIR MOMS.

I GO SEE 'EM, SPEND TIME WITH 'EM.

I NEVER WANT 'EM NOT TO BE IN MY LIFE.

THEY MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME.

AND I NEED TO DO RIGHT BY 'EM.

THAT SCARE YOU OFF?

YOU SEE ME RUNNING?

YOU CAN SAY THAT AGAIN.

HI, I'M EDDIE MURPHY.

I'M HERE ON THE SET OF MY NEW PICTURE, "ANOTHER 48 HRS.,"

AND I HAD TO TAKE TIME TO CONGRATULATE YOU, WHITNEY, FOR BEING THE RECIPIENT OF THE FREDERICK D. PATTERSON AWARD, AND FOR ALL THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS YOU'VE DONE FOR THE UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE FUND.

ALSO SOME PERSONAL THINGS, TOO, I'VE WANTED TO SAY AND A LOT OF THINGS I WANTED TO DO BUT NEVER GOT THE CHANCE.

THIS CATHOLIC GIRLS' SCHOOL, AND I WAS SO SHY AND THOSE GIRLS WERE SO CRUEL TO ME.

REALLY?

YEAH.

BUT I WAS JUST TOO SHY TO EVER TELL ANYONE.

AND WHEN I TRIED TO, I'D JUST...FREEZE UP.

I MEAN, DON'T GET ME WRONG.

HE'S CRAZY LIKE THE REST OF US, BUT FUNDAMENTALLY, HE'S A GOOD PERSON.

[ DOOR SLIDES CLOSED ]

I'M READY.

[ LAUGHS ] LET'S DO IT.

Sister: THEATRICAL MAKEUP IS TERRIBLE FOR MY FACE, MAMA.

Effie: SISTER...

BABY...

HE'S JUST GONNA DRAG YOU...

TO THE GUTTER WITH HIM.

GUTTER? MM-HMM.

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?

HE'S AS BIG-TIME AS YOU CAN GET! ...AS YOU CAN GET!

I'VE LIVED IN HARLEM ALL MY LIFE.

[ INHALES SHARPLY ]

I DO KNOW A RAT WHEN I SEE ONE.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, MAMA. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, MAMA.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.

WELL... I SAID MY PIECE.

[ CELLPHONE RINGING ]

WHITNEY: Bobby?

WHITNEY, IT'S BEEN A WHILE.

What's up?

I MISS YOU.

I MISS YOU, TOO, BABY.

[ EXHALES SOFTLY ]

WHERE ARE YOU? DOWN IN ATLANTA?

No. No. Boston.

WHY, YOU WANT ME TO COME OVER?

[ Laughs ]

WHAT, FROM BOSTON?

I COULD BE DOWN IN FOUR HOURS.

DON'T BE CRAZY.

TOO LATE.

WHERE YOU GOING? SOMETHING CAME UP.

MM-HMM, I BET IT DID.

OH, DON'T BE THAT WAY. I'LL CATCH YOU LATER.

YOU'RE GOING TO HER, AREN'T YOU?

AND WHAT ABOUT LaPRINCIA?

YOU KNOW I ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF MY OWN.

HEY.

[ SMOOCHES ]

IT'S NEVER GONNA WORK, BOBBY.

YOU KNOW THAT.

[ DOOR OPENS, CLOSES ]

[ SIGHS, SMOOCHES ]

[ LAUGHS ]

[ "TRACKS AND LINES" BY ERIC CLAPTON PLAYS ]

OHH! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU CAME!

COME ON! COME ON! COME ON! COME ON!

[ GIGGLING ]

HERE YOU GO, BABY.

I MAKE LOVE AND MAKE EGGS. [ CHUCKLES ]

WHAT'S WRONG, BABY?

WHAT'S THE MATTER?

YOU WEREN'T ALONE LAST NIGHT, WERE YOU?

BOBBY, COME ON. DON'T LIE TO ME.

[ SILVERWARE CLATTERS ]

YOU'RE RIGHT.

[ SIGHS ] YOU'RE RIGHT.

I WAS WITH KIM.

OH, SEE, YOU SAID YOU WERE DONE WITH THAT.

LOOK, I AM DONE WITH THAT, OKAY? TOTALLY DONE WITH THAT.

BABY, LISTEN, IT'S JUST...

[ SIGHS ]

LOOK, BABY. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT. OKAY?

IT'S JUST I THOUGHT YOU DIDN'T WANT ME NO MORE.

AND I GET LONELY WITHOUT YOU.

YOU ARE THE ONE I LOVE.

YOU KNOW THAT.

YOU'RE THE ONE I WANT.

THE ONLY ONE.

YOU'RE MY BABY. YOU'RE MY WOMAN. YOU ARE MY HEART, HMM?

GIVE IT TO ME.

MM.

SO, WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?

[ SIGHS ] I THINK HE'S PLANNING TO PROPOSE.

IS THAT A GOOD THING?

HE MAKES ME LAUGH.

YOU KNOW, HE'S A FAMILY MAN.

HE LOVES ME. I KNOW THAT.

AND I LOVE HIM.

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE THIS CHANCE.

BUT?

[ SIGHS ] I DON'T KNOW.

"I DON'T KNOW."

NIPPY, YOU ALWAYS KNOW.

I'M AFRAID OF MAKING A MISTAKE.

YOU KNOW, THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE WAS WHEN DADDY LEFT MOMMY.

I DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN TO ME.

AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA UPSET A LOT OF PEOPLE.

WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART?

THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD FOLLOW.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART.

WHAT DO YOU SAY?

YEAH. REALLY?

YEAH. [ LAUGHS ]

I MEAN, REALLY? YES! YES!

WELL, IN THAT CASE...

BOBBY! [ LAUGHS ]

NO, NO, NO, COME ON BACK. COME ON.

[ GASPS ] [ BOTH LAUGH ]

WHAT, YOU THOUGHT I WAS GONNA MARRY YOU WITH THAT CHEAP PIECE OF CRAP?

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU PUNKED ME LIKE THAT!

I HAD TO MAKE SURE YOU WEREN'T MARRYING ME FOR MY MONEY.

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

OH.

[ GASPS, LAUGHS ]

I LOVE ME SOME YOU.

MM.

ME TOO.

GIRL, LET ME HEAR YOU SAY IT.

WHY? YOU ALREADY KNOW I DO.

I AIN'T GONNA BELIEVE IT TILL I HEAR IT.

I LOVE YOU, BOBBY.

SAY IT SOME MORE.

I LOVE YOU, BOBBY. SAY IT SOME MORE.

I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU!

I LOVE YOU.

I LOVE YOU, AND I WANT TO HAVE KIDS AND HAVE A HAPPY, NORMAL LIFE.

ME TOO, BABY, MORE THAN ANYTHING.

MWAH!

[ Singsong voice ] I'M GONNA BE MRS. BOBBY BROWN!

[ SQUEALS ]

WE'RE GETTING MARRIED.

Michael: AND THEN THERE WAS MIAMI...

[ LAUGHTER ]

NO!

OKAY! OKAY! I WON'T SAY ANYTHING!

I CAN'T TELL Y'ALL ANYTHING!

SO, WHAT'S THE BIG MYSTERY?

NOPE. WE HAVE TO WAIT ON DADDY.

HE'S COMING, TOO? YES.

IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT?

COULDN'T BE BETTER. [ DOOR OPENS ]

Michael: HEY. HEY POPS.

JOHN. DADDY!

AH, DON'T YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU. YEAH.

MOMMY'S HERE. AH. OH.

HOW YOU DOING?

UH, UH, MONIQUE.

HEY, HOW ARE YA?

WHOSE HEART ARE YOU BREAKING? MINE. [ LAUGHS ]

OH, OF COURSE. I KNEW THAT.

OKAY, EVERYBODY, BEFORE WE HAVE LUNCH, I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE.

OH, HERE SHE GOES. [ LAUGHTER ]

[ Singsong voice ] I'M GETTING MARRIED.

[ ALL SHOUTING ]

WHO GONNA MARRY YOU, NIPPY?!

HUSH UP, SON.

LET ME SEE! LET ME SEE! [ GASPS ]

I JUST HOPE IT'S NOT BOBBY BROWN.

[ SHOUTING STOPS ]

IT IS.

I SPENT MY LIFE TRYING TO KEEP YOU AND YOUR BROTHERS OUT OF THE PROJECTS.

NOW YOU MARRYING INTO THEM?

HE'S NOT IN THEM ANYMORE.

DON'T BELIEVE IT.

YOU CAN TAKE THE BOY OUT THE GHETTO, BUT NOT THE GHETTO OUT THE BOY.

NIPPY, HE'S GOT KIDS.

YEAH, BY TWO DIFFERENT WOMEN.

AND HE'S A GOOD FATHER TO THEM.

AND THE POINT IS, WE LOVE EACH OTHER VERY MUCH.

AND I DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO STAND IN THE WAY OF OUR HAPPINESS.

I THOUGHT Y'ALL WOULD BE HAPPY FOR ME.

WHITNEY, THIS IS NOT RIGHT, AND I THINK YOU KNOW THAT.

YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN STUBBORN, BUT NOW YOU'RE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF.

YOU ALREADY HAD GARY WHEN DADDY MARRIED YOU.

THAT WAS DIFFERENT, AND YOU KNOW IT WAS.

WHY IS IT ALWAYS DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO ME?

WHITNEY!

NIPPY!

WHERE WERE YOU? ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?

OH, AM I HAPPY NOW? YOU DO THIS ALL THE TIME.

WHERE WERE YOU? YOU'RE HEAD OF SECURITY.

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT.

JUST TAKE IT EASY. WE'LL FIGURE THIS OUT.

SHE'S STILL OUR BABY.

Michael: NICE, MOM. REAL NICE.

[ DOOR UNLOCKS ]

[ GASPS ] HEY, BABY.

WHY YOU SITTIN' IN THE DARK?

WHAT'S WRONG, BOBBY?

HMM?

WHAT IS IT?

SHE PREGNANT.

WHO IS?

KIM.

KIM?

BABY, I CAN EXPLAIN THIS.

NO! I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THIS.

WHITNEY! WAIT. BABY, WAIT!

NO! NO! WHITNEY!

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. PLEASE!

NO, YOU TELL ME THIS AFTER I TELL MY FAMILY!

I JUST FOUND OUT, I SWEAR!

NO, YOU DON'T NEED THAT, OKAY? YOU HAVE ME. I'M HERE!

I DON'T HAVE YOU. SHE HAS YOU.

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TWO KIDS WITH HER NOW?!

LOOK, THIS HAPPENED BEFORE WE GOT BACK TOGETHER! I TRUSTED YOU.

BUT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

I'M NOT GOING BACK TO HER. WELL, YOU SHOULD!

NO, LISTEN, I'M NOT GOING BACK TO HER.

THAT'D BE UNFAIR TO ALL OF US.

OKAY? I LOVE YOU. THIS CHANGES NOTHING.

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT? BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

YOU'VE BEEN WITH HER SINCE YOU WERE 11.

YOU OBVIOUSLY STILL LOVE HER.

SHE HAS NO HOLD ON ME ANYMORE.

SHE'S PREGNANT!

I'D SAY THAT'S A HOLD.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF MY BABY, OKAY?

I ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF MY KIDS. YOU KNOW THAT!

[ SNIFFING ]

BUT I AIN'T GOT TO BE WITH HER TO DO THAT.

PLEASE! LISTEN TO ME!

I CANNOT STAND THE THOUGHT OF LOSING YOU!

MNH-MNH, WHITNEY, PLEASE! PLEASE!

WHY? COME ON. WHY?

BOBBY, DON'T YOU GET IT?

[ Voice breaking ] I WANTED TO BE THE ONE TO HAVE YOUR BABY.

ME!

YOU WILL.

AS SOON AS YOU CAN, WHENEVER YOU ARE READY.

I PROMISE YOU SHE WILL NEVER COME BETWEEN US.

NO ONE WILL, EVER.

UNLESS WE LET THEM.

BOBBY, LISTEN TO ME.

I'M PUTTING EVERYTHING ON THE LINE --

MY CAREER, EVERYTHING.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, I'M PUTTING MYSELF FIRST, AND I'M CHOOSING YOU.

I NEED THIS TO BE REAL.

IT IS REAL.

FOREVER.

I SWEAR.

[ BREATHING DEEPLY ]

[ SNIFFLES ]

HOW'D LAST NIGHT'S SHOW GO?

Girl, you mean tonight's show. It's 3:00 a.m. here.

I love these Japanese people.

They don't come to criticize you, you know?

JUST TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND GET THEY MONEY'S WORTH.

OH, AND CAROL OPENING FOR ME, TOO, SHE KNOCKED 'EM DEAD.

AWW, YOUR LITTLE SISTER DID GOOD, HUH?

YEAH, SHE GONNA BE HUGE.

BUT HOW'S MY BABY DOIN'?

BABY, I AM BEAT.

WE WORKED LAST NIGHT TILL 5:00 A.M., STILL GOT MORE TO GET.

HAD TO SHUT DOWN FOR TWO HOURS 'CAUSE THERE WAS SOME KIND OF PROBLEM WITH THE POWER IN THE BUILDING.

AND I'M GOING INTO THE STUDIO TOMORROW TO RECORD SOME MORE OF THE ALBUM.

CLIVE THINKS "THE BODYGUARD" SOUNDTRACK'S GONNA BE BIGGER THAN THE MOVIE.

LISTEN, YOU JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET YOURSELF SOME REST.

Yeah, and Kevin's been real good to me, REAL SUPPORTIVE... AND NOT JUST OF THE ACTING.

[ Chuckles ]

I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS BABY'S GONNA BE WITH YOU AS HER MOTHER.

HEY, YOU'RE NOT BAD-LOOKING YOURSELF.

Nothin' like you, baby. [ Chuckles ]

HEY, YOU MAKE SURE YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING YOU'RE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH, OKAY?

DON'T STRAIN YOURSELF.

I WON'T. [ KNOCK ON DOOR ]

OH, THEY'RE CALLING FOR ME NOW. I LOVE YOU.

LOVE YOU, TOO. OH, HEY, YOU REMIND KEVIN...

HMM? ...NO TONGUE.

[ SIGHS ]

YOU ALWAYS COME THROUGH FOR ME.

I SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN THIS GIG.

NO, THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

MAYBE IT WAS A SIGN.

A CHANCE TO RETHINK THINGS A LITTLE.

YOU MEAN WITH THE MOVIE?

NO, I MEAN WITH BOBBY.

MOMMY, YOU HAVE TO STOP JUDGING HIM.

I KNOW TROUBLE WHEN I SEE IT.

MOMMY, YOU DON'T KNOW BOBBY, NOT LIKE HE REALLY IS.

I KNOW WHAT I KNOW.

I BEEN AROUND A LOT LONGER THAN YOU.

YES, AND YOU TAUGHT ME EVERYTHING I KNOW.

BUT I AM A GROWN WOMAN NOW, AND I'M GOING MY OWN WAY.

EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE OKAY.

EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE OKAY, BABY.

I PROMISE.

I WANTED THIS BABY SO BAD.

I KNOW YOU DID.

WE BOTH DID.

BUT WE'LL GET ANOTHER CHANCE. DON'T WORRY.

IF WE DID IT ONCE, WE CAN AGAIN.

HEY, HEY, HEY. COME HERE.

BOBBY, TAKE ME HOME.

I DON'T FEEL GOOD BEING HERE.

NO, YOU CAN'T QUIT NOW.

TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE DEPENDING ON YOU.

I SHOULD JUST STICK TO MUSIC.

THAT'S -- THAT'S HOW PEOPLE KNOW ME.

THAT'S WHAT THEY LOVE ME FOR.

NOW, YOU LISTEN TO ME.

THAT MOVIE'S GONNA GO THROUGH THE ROOF.

AND IT'S PERFECT FOR YOU.

THERE'S NOT ANOTHER PART LIKE IT OUT THERE --

A LEADING ROLE OPPOSITE THE BIGGEST STAR IN AMERICA, AND IT'S FOR A BLACK WOMAN?

BABY, YOU GOT TO STICK WITH IT.

AND NOT JUST FOR YOU, YOU UNDERSTAND?

AND I'M GONNA STAY WITH YOU.

W-WHAT ABOUT YOUR RECORD TOUR?

I'LL CANCEL THE REST OF IT.

BOBBY, NO.

HEY, WHO'S KING OF STAGE?

YOU THINK YOU SHOULD?

YOU THINK I CAN'T TAKE A LITTLE BREAK FROM MY FANS AND STILL COME BACK STRONGER THAN EVER?

WELL, W-WHAT ABOUT YOUR LABEL?

OH, FORGET ABOUT THEM.
