Car Wash Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Car Wash script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Richard Pryor and George Carlin movie.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Car Wash. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

no objection to homosexuals...



as long as they stayed

in their place.






Come on,

You're very confused.

Mr. Clean!

to opening.



Thank you.

Keep the change.



You probably noticed

I ain't got nothin'

against you people.



I ain't got nothin'

against any people.



That's what I think we need

is more love in the world.



I don't know about marriage.

I don't know

if I'd go that far.



But I believe in

the lunch counter thing.



If a guy wants something

to eat, he oughta be able

to get something to eat.



Come on!

Let's move it up there!



What is this, a Mobil Gas

economy run? Come on!



Bunch o'bastards.!

A lot of guys are scared

of gettin' ripped off,

beat out of their fares.



A KGYS public health service


Hi, Leon!




Cancer cures smoking.



Watch it, Marsha.

My son's here today.



Oh. Okay.



I used to drive

a gypsy cab in New York.

Know what a gypsy cab is?



Gypsy cab'll go to Harlem,

to a Puerto Rican




We used to have

a slogan on the side

of the gypsy cabs.



Kinda funny,

now that I'm workin'

with the Yellow Cab.



Slogan used to be,

"We will go anywhere.

We are not Yellow."



"We are not Yellow."



It's no kind of a slur

on the Chinese

or anything like that.



But I ain't afraid

because I trust people.



I trust people

because I like 'em.



Come on, you bastard!



Come on!



I could tell from a block

away that you was honest.

I could tell by your eyes.



Well, not the eyes, actually,

from a block away.



But I go by body language.



You got a real honest body.



You bastard.



The Philadelphia Flyer's

record run...



in the women's

   -yard dash...



was.  seconds better than

Wilma Rudolph's Olympic record

set a decade ago.



And in baseball,

another record was set...



when ReggieJackson hit two

consecutive grand slam home runs

in one inning...



to aid in the   - 

undeniable slaughter...



ofhis former teammates.



Now, that's what I call

swingin'a big bat.



The weather

for Los Angeles and vicinity...



continued clear and warm,

light smog in the basin,

   at the airport,    downtown,



and in KGYS-land,

watch out, Los Angeles...






Smile so...

Oh... Oh!




You messed up again.



How about

that ReggieJackson?

Reggie who?



He's a great

baseball player.



Honey, baseball

is not my game.

Well, do you know about...



Stay tuned to KGYS, soul support

in greater Los Angeles.



Remember, we're giving away

tickets toJ.B. 's big

disco dance and show tonight.



Now here's a smooth one

called "Water."



Take a sip.



Morning, Abdullah.



Where were you

yesterday, Duane?



And you're late today,




You'd better get off

of my case, Earl.



And my name

is Abdullah Mohammed Akbar.

All right?



"Mohammed Akbar."



Hey, man,

Hey, Abdullah...

No, man!



You got a problem?

You need somethin'?






Just wondered

if you was all right.



I'm all right, man.



Go to work.

I'll be there in a second.



See you outside.



Excuse me, I realize

you don't get to look up

very often,



but did you happen to see

a tall, black, blond chick...



Big... Big, black,

blond chick?



Red boots?

Blond, big,




Yeah, black blond.







What's the matter, man?



You should be

feeling great.



Look, I'm worried

about Charlene.



I mean, maybe I should

call her or something.



I ain't ever stayed out

all night before.



It's not cool to

let a woman take you

for granted, man.



Besides, you was terrific

last night.



That's another thing.

I got a burn down there now.



Suppose I caught somethin'...

Hey, this ain't funny.



Suppose I got the clap.

How am I gonna explain that?



Hey, man,

you ain't caught nothin'

but a case of the guilts.




A guilt burn?



This is J.B. Back on the case...



with a change of pace,



with another

better than the other.



Hey, come on, fellas.

Like what? Take over

the payments for me?



Man, there ain't

Dig it, I would be

You full of shit.

Oh, come on, Lloyd.

I could be able to walk up

buildings, brother man.



And nobody would

mess with me, man.

Nobody, man.



'Cause I would be the Fly.



But you still

full of shit though.



You wouldn't

talk to me like that

if I was the Fly.



Oh, yes, I would,



because then you'd be

full of fly shit.



You know what else, man?

There ain't nothin' lower

than fly shit.



Not kangaroo shit,

elephant shit

or chicken shit.



Ain't nothin' lower

than fly shit.



You crazy, man.

I swear, I'll kill you man,

You ever mess

No. No.




Yeah, go ahead, get in.



I'm on my way to see Slide.

Wanna play a number, Earl?



Never sucker me

Oh, poor Leon.




Watch it, watch it.



My son. My son.



Irwin, come to the office.

I want to talk to you.



L-Irwin, uh,

Double check my figures,

I wanna work

Adios, Miss Beverly Hills.



I know you gonna dig this.




to ease your pain...



and take the chain

Wait a minute

Here comes Daddy Rich



In his mean limousine



People come from everywhere

when he's on the scene



"Clean"can't describe



The clothes he wears



He says all you got to do

is believe



And you'll get your share



I went to Daddy Rich's church

last Sunday



There was, uh

wall-to-wall people there



Standing room only



Ayoung man jumped up

and accused Daddy Rich

ofbein'a thief



Daddy Rich just smiled



And, uh, began to preach



He said

I fear not those



Who do not like me



Whose car is that?

That belongs to the supreme

black man, that's who.



Yeah, that's Daddy's car.

Daddy Rich.

You never watch him on TV?



Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!







Praise the Lord.



Or praise this car, honey.



Thank you, miss.



Yeah, Daddy.

Daddy Rich,

what's your secret?



My secret?

How you doin'?




Thank you, brother.



Good to see you.

The secret...



Thank you.




There are no secrets.

Believe that.

Uh-huh. I believe it.



Except believe

in the Lord!





And believe in yourself.



And most of all,




Believe in that

federal green.



'Cause money walks

and bullshit talks.



How you doin',




Daddy Rich,

I been followin' you

for over five years.



Well, bless you, brother,

bless you.



Would you allow me

the privilege

of shining your shoes?






Well, you know what they say.

I take what is given unto me.









Daddy Rich's

special polish.




Special polish.!




That's real fur.




Oh, my God.!



What's it feel like

in there, Lindy?



Like being in church

with Burt Reynolds, honey.



I'd like you

to drink with me,

'cause my cup runneth over.



All right!

All right!



Blessed be the tithe.




My Lord.!



From the body

to the heavens,



and a little bit

for the earth.



Amen, brother, amen.







And it's good too.



Don't even look dirty.



You're gonna wash this car

because of a little pigeon shit

on the trunk?



Not the car.

Just the spot.



Don't let the water

be hotter than   . .



Water? You'd better speak

to this gentleman.



Daddy Rich, ever since

I been following you,



I got a new house

and a color TV.






All right!



Praise the Lord.



Why don't you tell everybody

how you got so rich,

Daddy Rich?



This is one nigger

you ain't foolin', brother.



I'm hip to the game

you runnin' down

on these people here.



What can I do for you,




The same thing you doin'

for everybody else... nothin'.



Hey, man, hey.!



Guess you don't believe

in my church... the Church

of Divine Economic Spirituality.



Yeah, that's right.

I don't believe in it.



- Then you don't believe in God.

- Not your God.



My God's doin'

all right by me.



He sure is!

He's doin'

all right by me too!



Why don't you

climb on board, brother,

and believe in me.



And for a small fee

I'll set you free,

nearer thy God to thee.



- Praise you, honey. Praise you.



'Cause it's better to have money

and not to need it than

to need it and not to have it.






There's a good place

in this world for money.



And I know where it is...

right here in my pocket.



Hey, give me some.!



You talkin'

just like a pimp.



Now, wait a minute.



Answer him.



Answer him, Lord.



I don't get mad

at people like that.

You know why?



- 'Cause he's a revolutionary.

- That's right, brother.



He must be leadin'

a bunch of fools, disrespect

women he don't even know.



Wilson Sisters

some of the finest women

you ever wanna meet.



He don't know nothin'

To clean up

the dog shit.



Hey. Hey.

We don't clean up no shit.



Don't give me no lip.

Clean up the shit.



You clean it up, Earlie.

That's right.

You clean it up.



I don't get wet and

I love it.

Clean it up.



It's five minutes

We promised you more

about the pop bottle bomber.

KGYS is first with the flash.



You got it.

Keep doin' it that way.



Live from Parker Center,

soul sister LaVonne Styles.

Come on in.



Hi, this is LaVonne Styles.

Oh. No, thank you.



I'm here at Parker Center

talking to

Police Chief Dave Evis.



Chief Evis, have you been able

to identify the mad bomber?



Hi, Sam!

He's a short, nervous,

scraggly haired individual.



How you doin'?




From eyewitness descriptions,

his principal weapon...

Mail call!



Seems to be a common pop bottle

that's filled with, oh,

you know, high explosives,



Thank you.

Capped with silver foil,

containing a fuse device.



From Parker Center,

this is LaVonne Styles for KGYS.



Uh, finito, honey.



Oh, thank you...

Lindy, you lightened

your hair.



I love it.

What color is it?



It's supposed to

be mango, honey,

but it's not right yet.



But wait till I get to

the school tonight.



Listen, Lindy,

I finally figured out how

I wanna have my nose done.



I was thinking of doing

ELizabeth Taylor

from here to here...



and Olivia Newton-John

on the bottom.



- What do you think?

- Flawless, honey.



Damn. Who is Earl

to tell me to

clean up that shit?



And then Geronimo's gonna

run off and leave me




Wh... Who do they think...

Hey, Tall Chief,

lend me your ears.



Yeah, uh, run that

by me again.



Lend me your ears.

Lend me your lips.



Ah, come on, man.

I ain't askin'

to sleep with your mama.



Have you ever seen me

give up my ears?

No, man, but...



Well, then, what

possessed you to even think

to ask to borrow my ears?



This chick wants to

take my picture, man.

Just for a minute.



You gotta do

better than that.



And "just for a minute"

ain't gonna get it either.



You gotta tell me somethin'.

Make me understand...



Well, it ain't every day

you can do somethin'

for a fellow American.



Midday in L.A.,

And don't get it all dirty.



And time for Rod McGrew

to do it to you.



Yeah, thank you,J.B.



This is your brother,

Rod McGrew.



Don't forget, stick around,

because later on

we've got two tickets...



toJ.B. 's disco dance

and show...



live at Howard's Grand Casino

Music Hall and Rib Shack.



It happens tonight.



Be there for the funkiest sounds

in town, like this...



Hey, Tall Chief,

thanks for the ears.



Oh, any time,

my friend.



The Five Spot got ribs today.

I'm gon' get me some ribs.



Ooh, yeah!



How 'bout y'all,




Uh, how 'bout...

Abdullah, you want

some ribs?



Man, I told you.



I don't eat meat.



I'm off the pig.



I eat natural foods,

not slave foods.

Is that all right with you?



Um, excuse me, brother,

but is ribs pig?



They had such a good time.

How do you know

Scruggs had a good time?



What did I do?



Shit, man!

What did I do?



She's crazy.

Got her brains

in her lungs.



Then the bitch

must be a genius!



Marsha, this is my lunch!



What'd you do

with my ears, man?




Looks like a nice lunch

you got there.





What do you want?



I was just thinkin'.



Maybe I ought to

call Charlene, just to

let her know I'm all right.



Scruggy, what I tell you

this morning?



It ain't cool for your old lady

to know where you are

every minute of every day.



Tonight when you get home,

she's gonna be at the door

with your pipe and slippers...



in that little negligee

you told me about.



It ain't good for her to know

that she can boss you around.



Well, I don't smoke a pipe

and I don't wear

no slippers.



Scruggy, I'm the expert.




Take it from me. I've been

married three and a half times.

I should know, huh?



Hey, what the hell

is going on

around here, huh?



This is no playground.

We wash cars, huh?



We're on our lunch hour.

Then eat your lunch.



Go ahead.

You heard me.



You heard Mr. B.



That's all right, Chuko.

I'm gonna get you.

In your dreams, Pocahontas.



Hey, come on. Come on.






The station that brings you...

Soul, soul, soul, soul






Here's your coffee, sir.






In this chair



Waitin'on you

Anybody want

some more coffee?



Oh, baby

You don't even

look my way






Girl, I'm



Spendin'my dimes



Wastin'my time




I'm black and blue



Oh, can't you see



I wanna get next to you




what'll you have?



Dreams of you

and I go sailing by



Whenever your eyes

meet mine



You're so fine.



And, girl

you make me feel so insecure




you'd better stay away

from that hooker!



You're so beautiful

and pure



Hey, Goody, watch. Watch.

Why must you be unkind



And tell me

I'm not your kind



Blowin'my mind



Girl, my

Two specials.



You look really pretty

this morning.

What'll it be?



You and me.



Listen, T.C.,

I got no time...




What's the special today?

Ribs and wings.



What kind of wings?



Chicken wings.



I've always been

a breast-and-thigh man myself.



Why are you so cold to me?

I went out with you once,

didn't I?



Yeah, but what about...

Take your hand

off of me.



What about tonight?



It's just not in the cards

for you and me.




Because you've got no money,

no future and no class.



I'm not going out

with niggers

with no class anymore.



- Pick up two.

- What about Chinese?



We got class.



Oh, wow.



I wanna get next to you



Wanna get out

of the car, Harold?



Okay. Okay.

on the big KGYS,



playing the songs

that you want to hear

on your soul support station...



in greater Los Angeles.



Old lovin'




Dad, let's rap.



It's very important

that you and I rap.



Ray Hoenig almost choked

to death the other day.



He was eating a chicken sandwich

when his son decided

at that moment...



to tell him

he's a homosexual.



Got a piece of chicken

caught right here.



So please, talk later.



That's cool.



Irwin. Irwin!



- You're not a homosexual,

are you?

- Not yet.



Can I help you, honey?

Uh, yeah.



You haven't by any chance

seen a tall, blond

black chick around here?






Fly, look at that.

Oh, shit!






Get goin', get goin',

get goin'.



You think it's

the invisible man?

Come on, man.



Now, look. Look, look.



Hey, baby.

How're you doin'?




I'm glad to hear that.



What happened

to you, man?






That's some tough shit,




Oh, my God.

I'll tell you what

I'm gonna do.



Hey, watch out, Goody!



Hey, man!



Man, I don't know

what y'all...



- Say, Goody.



You almost got

my hair wet, man.



My stuff ain't straight

like yours. It takes time.



Come on.

Nah, man.



That dude don't know who

he's messin' with, man!

He didn't mean it.



That cat's lucky.

He don't know how close

he was. I am the Fly.!



Let me go. Hey!



Cat got that straight hair.




My hair takes time

to get together. You know

what I'm talkin' about?



What did you do

to that cat anyway?

I don't know.



He did somethin'

with Goody's ears.



Yeah, that was nice

and really, really smokin',



Here's a new tune

called "Zig Zag."



Let's see if this goody

is hot enough for you.



You hungry, Harold?



You want Chinese

or Italian?






Hey, T.C., man.



All right?

All right.



Hey, man, I didn't know

that Marsha was gonna do that.



That's all right.

Just like the other time

with that wet towel.



Yeah. That was...



Hey, man.

Loan me some soda?

Hey, nothin' to it.



Hey, all right.

What was that

in that car?



That mummy.






Hey, what...



Hello, Lonnie.



Hey, man. What the hell

It's our policy from time

to time to visit our men at

their place of employment.



Man, I report every month

You ain't got to keep

It's part of my job.

Talk is cheap.

That's right, honey.



That is what is meant by

"a fall into the pit...



is a gain in your wit."



Irwin, who did you say

said all that?



Mao, man. Mao Tse-tung.

He's the head dude

of all the red Chinese.



Is he anything

like Bruce Lee?




do-do-do-do-do, do



It's really getting hot,

ain't it?




Oh, hot. Oh, hot.



If you wanna feel

Parking lots, he said.



I told him

Now he can buy

and sell me.






Geronimo, man, I gotta win

that radio contest.



I get them tickets, boy,

Whoo! She's so fine.




Man, I got down with her.

Can you believe that?



I ever tell you?

Every day.



"And to overthrow

the reactionary

ruling classes...



and therefore impossible

for the people to win power."

- Ibid?



Heavy rhetoric,

little boss.



Duane... I mean...

I mean, Abdullah.



You know what I'm

where I'm coming from.



Revolution is...

You wanna pick my brain,





I'm gonna let you.



You know that revolution

you keep talkin' about

all the time?



When it happens,

and it's gonna happen,



then you're gonna be

working here for real

and not just playing around,



splashing in the water.



We get a chance

to run your white ass,



and you all get a chance

to sing "We Shall Overcome"

in Chinese.



- Hey, man!

- That's not what I meant.



I'm so tired of you

runnin' off at your mouth.



It's gettin' me down,




Why don't you just leave

and be an assassin?



'Course the only thing

you're good at shootin' off

is your big mouth.



Would you please

get out of my face,



you sorry-looking faggot?




Who you calling

sorry looking?



Can't y'all see

that she ain't funny?



She's just

another poor example...



of how the system has

of destroying our men.



Honey, I am more man

than you'll ever be...



and more woman

than you'll ever get.



- Shit.

- All right.



I want to see you

get down



I want to see you

He ain't good enough

because he's an ex-con?

You're forgettin' something.



I ain't forgettin' nothin'.



Then you just lay off

At least he didn't

bust no head open on no

gas station attendant.



Hey, don't push it,

It's so noisy out here.

I thought it might disturb you.
