David Ruffin:
I'm the one sellin' the records. They're comin' to see me.



Otis Williams:
They're comin' to see the Temptations.



David Ruffin:
Ain't nobody comin' to see you, Otis! You wish you could work it the way I do, but you can't! Because there is only one David Ruffin. And without him, the Temps ain't nothin' but a group in SEARCH of a David Ruffin. Matter of fact, I been thinkin'. We should call the group David Ruffin And The Temptations. Yeah, that sound good to me. Y'all beggin' me not to leave you.

He's straight. Listen to him.

I'm back in the group, O. Tell me I'm back in the group.

You ain't in this group. Don't you get it? You blew it!

He's the one who blew it, Corn!

Shelly Berger:
That was a disaster.



Melvin Franklin:
Yeah, Shelly, we know. All right?



Shelly Berger:
The next set's in 45 minutes. There's no way he'll be ready.



Eddie Kendricks:
He'll be ready.



Shelly Berger:
Falling down drunk doesn't get better in 45 minutes, Eddie. You know what we have to do, Otis...



Eddie Kendricks:
No! If Paul's not on that stage, I'm not on that stage.



Shelly Berger:
The Temptations are known for precision, Eddie. I don't know what that was, but that wasn't it.



Eddie Kendricks:
What's it to you, Shelley? You ain't up there.



Shelly Berger:
I might as well be. Mr. Gordy holds me responsible for everything that goes on out there.



Eddie Kendricks:
I'm responsible for Paul.



Shelly Berger:
Oh, yeah? Then where were you when he was getting plastered?



Eddie Kendricks:
I said it. I'm not going on without Paul
