1 [OPENING CHORDS OF "FINALE" FROM "PIPPIN" PLAYING] Do you want something? I'm I'm all right.
Thanks.
["CABARET" PLAYING] And as for me What the hell you doing out here? What, are you buying Milk Duds? I can't watch.
All I see is the shit I should have fixed.
Yeah, well, of course you do.
I needed two more weeks in the cutting room, Cy.
- Two more weeks.
- Well, the audience disagrees, because they're going nuts in there.
Look, I know the two of us, we had our moments.
But, Bobby, we made a hell of a movie.
Come on, would it kill you to smile a little bit? You're about to be the director of the hottest picture - of the year.
- Don't say that.
- Don't say things like - You're unbelievable.
Come on.
I can't wait to watch them watch that last shot.
Ooh, I get goose bumps every time.
- Wh Are you coming or what? - No, I'm gonna go home.
What do you mean, home? What about the the party? I'm not in the mood for a funeral.
[TAPPING] I guess you finally realized what we knew from the beginning.
[KNOCKING] Open the door, asshole.
[KNOCKING] [GROANS] Bobby, open up! I'm not leaving till you open the door.
Open up, asshole! Ah, what the fuck? You got some nerve stranding me at that party last night.
I'm sorry.
Sorry, your apology is not accepted.
I wandered around for an hour looking for you last night.
Finally I run into Cy Feuer.
And he says, "Oh, Bobby's not coming to this party.
" So now I'm stuck making small talk with Cy Feuer for an hour, the man with the worst halitosis - in the entertainment industry.
- [LAUGHING] - It's not funny! - [COUGHING] I was so pissed off at you when I got home.
I lay in bed all night fuming.
I get up at 5:00 this morning, I go to the news stand.
Oh, oh, look what I find.
"New York Times" review of "Cabaret.
" Rave.
"Variety," rave.
"Hollywood Reporter" calls it a masterpiece.
Reviews like this, how could I stay mad at you, you smug son of a bitch? [KISSES] - They they they liked it? - Liked it? Bobby, "'Cabaret' is a stunning entertainment.
" Ah, "An exuberant marriage of talent and intelligence.
" - I-I could go on.
- [LAUGHING] Bobby, reviews like these, you got a blank check.
Anything you want to do from now on Broadway, Hollywood total freedom.
- It's incredible.
- It's incredible.
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [BRIGHT MUSIC] This script, it's boring.
It's small.
We need to go big or what are we doing here? Let's talk about the new song, "Glory.
" I don't wanna just hear people singing about blood and guts.
I want to see how much it turns them on.
I want to have Ben up there with a couple of girls in a sexy piece that says all this shit in Cambodia makes them hot.
The love song in act one? I'm not interested in pastoral.
I want to see Pippin up there with five knock-outs passing him around for kicks till he's on his knees begging for mercy.
I know that look.
That's the same look Cy Feuer gave me every day on the set of a little movie called "Cabaret.
" Remember that look, ladies and germs.
It means we're onto something good.
We're gonna take what's here, we're gonna blow it all up, then we're gonna see what happens.
I think it's gonna be a lot of fun.
The man has lost his mind.
Well, I think it's very sweet of him.
What am I supposed to do with a car? I don't know.
Drive it.
In the city? I'd have a wreck before I even left my block.
Oh, well, I believe in you.
Well, that's your first mistake.
How's the play going? You know, it couldn't be better.
I can't wait to see it.
Well, you'll be there for opening.
I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Good afternoon, Miss Simon.
Well, that's my cue.
Oh, that looks tasty.
It's inedible, dear.
How about if I bring lunch on Wednesday? Outside food is against the rules.
- I'm not listening.
- She's not listening.
I'll cook my spaghetti with clam sauce.
Don't worry.
The white wine cooks off.
[CHUCKLES] Sounds divine.
I love you.
You look beautiful.
[KISSES] And I'll see you Wednesday.
All right.
Dr.
Davis, telephone please.
Dr.
Davis, telephone please.
Well, Pippin, I guess you finally realize what we knew from the beginning.
What's that? That your search for meaning and fulfillment was doomed from the start.
Nothing ever turns out the way you think it's going to.
It's all flawed, one way or another.
Isn't that true? Nothing has been completely fulfilling, now has it, Pippin? - ALL: Has it? - No, I guess there's nothing.
There is something.
The only completely perfect act in our repertoire.
How much time do we have to fix this? Uh, we have 15 minutes for our last ten.
Let's go ahead and take it now.
- Ten, everyone.
- Thank you, ten.
Uh, we have to talk about this whole sequence.
The ending is, uh it's it's too soft.
We're not saying anything.
We should be going right for the jugular.
Yeah, let's talk about this.
Hey.
Hey, what do you think of this scene? It's good.
I'm hungry.
Go in my jacket.
I think there's a Hershey's bar in there.
- I want chips.
- Me, too.
Get some for me.
Barbecue.
- Could I get another Tab? - [SIGHS] Okay, but don't tell your mother.
You'll be up all night with the caffeine.
What are you doing? Give me that.
Give me that.
Hey, hey.
- She's adorable, Bobby.
- Hey.
Uh, what are you what are you up to tonight? Remember that TV special I did with Liza? I just got a rough cut back from the editor.
You want to come over, take a look? - Tell me what you think.
- Yeah, absolutely.
- Yeah? - I'd love to.
Yeah.
Why don't you come over tomorrow night? - Sure thing, Bobby.
- Great.
Get some rest, ladies.
Be good.
Hey, Annie, when are you coming? [PIANO MUSIC PLAYING] Sounds like you're already getting plenty of feedback.
You know, I wouldn't want to pile on.
And I-I-I need to underscore that transition.
- Yeah.
- Yeah? Whatever he says, don't believe him.
Michigan was a long time ago.
Oh, well, hello.
Hey.
There she is.
How you doing? You told Nicole she could have a Tab? - Oh, why not? - How many has she had? [LAUGHS] One or two maybe.
- I don't know.
- Nicole says five.
Well, that's gotta be an exaggeration, right? Uh, we already have transition music there, Bob.
- Oh, can you play it for me? - Sure.
["FINALE" PLAYING] Yeah.
That's good.
Can I talk to you for a second? That works, yeah.
When are you coming back to see the play? I'll be there opening.
Well, I'm gonna need you back before then.
I-I was there last week.
I thought you were in great shape.
Yeah, well, thank you.
That that was before the writers started cutting everything.
I mean, I'm still waiting for him to put something back in.
- Maybe they're good cuts.
- Yeah, it's 45 minutes.
It's not even a play anymore.
It's a skit.
All right, how can I help you? I just I want you to fix it.
You want me to tell him how to rewrite his play? I don't even know him.
The man thinks that you walk on water.
You should hear the way these people talk about you.
They're in awe.
We have two weeks before opening.
I'm sure you can find some time in your schedule.
- [STAMMERING] I'll do my best.
- Okay.
- Okay? - Thank you.
Okay.
So, Bob, right now we have the cue after, "Well, Pippin, I guess you finally realize what we knew from the beginning," and Pippin says, "What's that?" "That your search for meaning and fulfillment were doomed from the start.
" Piano comes in on the word "start.
" - I think that works, right, Bob? - Uh-huh.
Well, I'll sing you the story of a sorrowful lad He had everything he wanted Didn't want what he had He had wealth and pelf and name And fame and all of that noise But he didn't have none of Those simple joys His life seemed purposeless and flat The show's starting.
I'm taking a bath, sweetheart.
But you said that you would watch it with me.
Well, why don't you just go ahead and start without me? It's not fair! [WATER RUNNING] Nicole, this is my first night off in a month.
But you said that we would watch it.
Would you just stop bellowing at me? I'm not spending it watching "The Partridge Family.
" Oh, God.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] ["WILLKOMMEN" PLAYING] [ALL LAUGHING] [ALL LAUGHING AND APPLAUDING] We got you your Oscar a little bit early.
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] - Bobby, you're a shoo-in.
- Oh, tell that to Coppola.
I just hope you have room for me on your mantle.
Well, for you, I-I'll make room.
[LAUGHTER] I've got to be someone who lives All of his life in superlatives When you're extraordinary You gotta do extraordinary things [APPLAUSE] - [KNOCKING] - Come in.
- Oh.

- You were terrific.
- Well, look at those.
You looked Well, that's just what we need, isn't it? You were radiant.
Oh, thank you.
And the play's really it's really come a long way.
- Yeah.
- Let's not overstate things.
[CHUCKLES] Go on.
I'll see you at the party.
Hey, look, nobody's gonna accuse the guy of being the next Eugene O'Neill, but you're giving a magnificent performance.
You really are.
You're just great up there.
I'm trying to be honest with you.
Do you want me to be honest with you? - We're closing tomorrow.
- Well, it's not It's gonna have a fine run.
Let's not be dramatic.
Oh, no, that's not my opinion, Bob.
That's a fact.
Oh, Arthur just told me they're announcing in the morning.
They got wind of the reviews this afternoon and the sales were already weak.
But the notices are "Catastrophic" was the word I believe he used.

Who's in the middle? It's not gonna work.
Just rewrite it.
You want to change the ending? Yeah, it's bullshit.
Total bullshit.
Pippin's about to have all of his dreams come true.
He says, "I can make you a star.
" If he sets himself on fire.
I-if he kills himself on stage.
And instead he chooses to get married, to live on a farm? He chooses love.
How realistic is that? Well, what else is he going to do? He's gonna set himself on fire.
Glory, glory.
That's the end of our day, folks.
Back here tomorrow at ten.
[PIANO MUSIC PLAYING] That's an ending.

" Keep a lid on it.
Just the hips.
Did you hear what I said, Bob? - Oh, yeah.
- Rights to "Chicago.
" That's that's great.
I I can't think about another show right now, you know? Well, it would be next season, obviously.
I-I just I got a lot of job offers after this is through.
I can't guarantee that "Chicago's" the next thing I'm gonna wanna do.
It's the next thing I want to do.
Candy, I believe you're behind.
Just a little bit behind.

Have you been to see Joan? How is she? Oh, she's in very good spirits.
She thinks the surgery was successful.
She thinks she'll be home in a few weeks.
Maybe you could find some time in your schedule - to make an appearance.
- I will, yeah, sure.
Make it soon.
The doctor said she has a month at most.
- Ta-da - It looks wonderful, Bob.
You keep up the good work.
Okay, let's go.
["SIMPLE JOYS" PLAYING] See you, Pickles.
Feasting your belly Feasting your eyes Simple joys have a simple voice It says time is a living prize And wouldn't you rather be a left-handed flea A crab on a slab at the bottom of the sea A newt on the root of a banyan tree Or a fig on a twig in Galilee Than a man who never learns how to be free Not till the day, not till the day Not till the day not till the day he dies [INHALES SHARPLY] - You're a cradle robber.
- Only a few years apart.
- How many? - I'm not telling.
[BOTH LAUGHING] - What does he do? - He's an actor.
Oh, no, Gwen, don't tell me that.
But you would never know it.
You would never know.
He's a wonderful actor and he loves what he does, but it's not his entire life.
He's an athlete.
He rides horses, he jogs, he hikes.
He sounds exhausting.
Oh, yes, well, darling, he is.
Oh.
So we met at a fundraising dinner for McGovern.
We were the entertainment.
They had me doing a send-up of "Lola," except they changed the lyrics.
Whatever Nixon wants - Oh, clever.
- Yes, well, they thought so.
And Ron, he was cast as my Joe Hardy.
No lines, and the poor guy, he's just sitting there in his little baseball uniform.
And I felt so badly for him, I asked if I could - buy him dinner later.
- Oh, yes.
Out of the goodness of your heart.
But what I didn't realize until later is how talented he was.
As an actor? Let's just say that the man has more talent in this finger than most men do in their entire - Bodies? - Sure.
[LAUGHING] But what does Bobby think of him? Oh, well Oh, of course you haven't told him.
Well, you know him.
He just can't handle it.
How many of his girlfriends have you had to suffer through? Well, he doesn't see it that way.
Yes, clearly.
What about if you were there when I introduced them? - Oh, no, thank you.
- Oh, let's do that.
When you get home, let's have a dinner.
You and Neil and me and Ron, and then Bobby and whatever her name is this week.
Please don't.
Well, okay.
Fine, then.
You're uninvited.
It's lousy enough I have to coddle Neil.
Please don't make me coddle you as well.
I'm not a child, Gwen.
I know I'm never going home.
I've known since the first biopsy.
Dr.
Snyder asked to talk to Neil alone in the hallway.
Neil came back white as a sheet.
He said Dr.
Snyder just wanted to ask him a favor.
Tickets to a show.
Do you remember when we first became friends? Neil and Bobby doing that awful show.
You were pregnant with Nicole.
I was pregnant with Nancy.
We stood in the back of the theater on opening night, because we were too fat to sit in the seats.
[LAUGHS] Oh, our girls.
They have so much in common, don't they? Raised in rehearsal studios and on film sets.
Sometimes I regret that.
Sometimes I think we let them grow up too fast.
I-I need you to promise me something, Gwen.
Promise me that you'll look out for Nicole.
She needs her mother.
I worry for her.
You take care of her.
[STAMMERS] Hey, Bobby.
Can I talk to you? - I'm on my way out, Sherry.
- It'll just take a second.
- What is it? - Look, I I know that I haven't been dancing my best.
And I can do better.
I-I promise.
I-I-I will do better.
[CLEARS THROAT] Could I maybe buy you a drink? I don't know.
I'm not wearing my dance belt.
You sure I'll be safe? Yeah.
Well, yeah, I can go for a I can go for a drink.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Okay.
- After you.
- Thank you.
[LAUGHS] A frog? He had it in his pocket the whole time.
In his pocket? And was it, um, slimy? - Of course it was.
- [LAUGHING] Mrs.
Fosse, you're home early.
Well, I canceled my dinner plans.
[STAMMERING] How how was she? A doll.
I already finished my homework.
Oh, and and picking her up from school, everything was the teachers are are happy with her? Nicole? She's the teacher's pet.
Hey, that's not nice.
Darling.
You do well at school.
There's nothing wrong with that, now is there? - No? - No, I would say not.
She's a good girl, isn't she? Yes, she is.
You go read some books, okay? I'll be right there.
Get ready for bed.
How's Aunt Joan? Better every day.
[TAPPING, LINE TRILLING] Your search for meaning and fulfillment was doomed from the start.
Nothing ever turns out the way you think it's going to.
It's all flawed, one way or another.
- Yeah.
- It isn't working, uh What, what? What isn't working? The, uh, the end.
The the ending.
It's bullshit.
It's 3:00 o'clock in the morning, Bob.
No, I know.
I know.
Look, I just need you to see the show.
I need you to help me with this ending before we take it to New York, before the critics tear it apart.
Come to Washington this weekend.
You could you could be down here and back home in the same day.
I'll get you a car on both sides of the train.

" I need to say thank you to all the marvelous people who helped with the show and say that they couldn't have done it without me.
[LAUGHTER] Thank you.
Your problem is that you learned at a very young age - everything is bullshit.
- Mmm.
Success is bullshit.
Love is bullshit.
It's all just bullshit.
Eagles belong where they can fly And the winner is Bob Fosse for "Cabaret.
" [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] There's so many people to thank.
I know you've heard all the names.
It's important for me to thank them.
Uh, of course Liza and Joel, uh, Michael York, Manny Wolf, Kander and Ebb, a dear friend of mine by the name of Gwen Verdon.
He said your name.
I'd also like to mention Cy Feuer, the producer with whom I've had many disputes.
But on a night like this, you start having affection for everybody.
Thank you.
Why didn't he thank me? Because you didn't help direct his movie, darling.
This is the point I'm trying to make.
It's not that the world is bullshit.
- You are bullshit.
- Yeah.
- You are bullshit.
- Yeah.
So if you are bullshit and they're giving you an award, they must be bullshit, too.
- Yeah, yeah.
- You know what I mean? You could win 100 of these, Bob.

Fosse.

Who are you? I'm Ron.
[TRAFFIC RUMBLING] ["FINALE" PLAYING] I guess you finally realized what we knew from the beginning.
Yeah, I guess so.
You were never gonna find what you were looking for, Bobby.
Nothing ever turns out the way you want it to.
It's all flawed, one way or another.
Isn't that true? Nothing's been completely fulfilling, now, has it, Bobby? Has it? - Has it? - Has it? ALL: Has it? You got everything you wanted and it still isn't enough.
- It'll never be enough.
- Tell him, Paddy.
Well, I'll sing you the story of a sorrowful lad He had everything he wanted, didn't want what he had He had wealth and pelf and fame and name And all of that noise ALL: But he didn't have none of those simple joys And wouldn't you rather be a left-handed flea A crab on a slab at the bottom of the sea Than a man who never learns how to be free - Not till the day he - Not till the day he ALL: Not till the day, not till the day he Dies.
There is something.
The only completely perfect act in our repertoire.
The finale.
ALL: The finale! It's a long way it's a long way down.
You can't say you don't deserve it.
Oh, Bobby.
You're so special.
Nobody else can do what you can do.
Nobody even comes close.
It's time the world sees just how extraordinary you are.
When you're extraordinary You gotta do extraordinary things The ones who die young, those are the ones who live forever.
You know that.
You made me a star.
From the highest tower But if you do this, you'll eclipse me.
You'll eclipse everyone.
Glory, glory Glory, glory - Imagine the applause.
- Think of the word of mouth.
The biggest standing ovation of your career.
Everyone will remember this night.
They'll never forget you, Bobby.
It's time, Bobby.
Your audience is waiting.
