Wayne: 80 million records and I'm a dancing crustacean. George Osmond: You're too young. Merrill: I'm twenty. I'm old enough to know how I feel... sir George Osmond: You're too young for marriage. Merrill: How old were you when you married mother? George Osmond: My stepfather drove me out of the house when I was fourteen years old I didn't have a family like this. Merrill: So I can never get married? I just hang out with my brothers until we're so senile that we can't remember which one's which? George Osmond: Don't play the wise guy with me, son. Merrill: I love her! George Osmond: You asked. I don't think you're ready. Alan Osmond: Seriously, Mr.Regas. We want to play Rock-N-Roll. Jack Regas: Well, it's not that easy, Alan. George Osmond: You work with him on the show. You know how fast they pick up a new routine. Alan Osmond: Don't ever do that again. Merrill: That's my song! I sing the lead! Alan Osmond: No, we agreed Donny would sing that. Merrill: YOU agreed! I didn't! Merrill: I'm starting to feel like the last dog on a sled team. And I'm not liking the view. Alan Osmond: We want to go in a different direction. That's all this is about. George Osmond: A different direction? Alan Osmond: Musically. George Osmond: I see. So you go into the studio and cut an album. Who's Donny going to record with? Who's he going to tour with? How is this family going to stay in one piece? "Family, faith, career" in that order. How many times do I have to say it? Alan Osmond: If Merrill wants to leave I can't stop him. George Osmond: You can. You can hold the brothers together or not. You're the oldest in the group, you lead. Now that's a big responsibility. If you don't want that, you tell me right now. Take a good look at that wall. Covered with gold records. All of them with one name on them - "Osmond". Don't lose sight of that. Family Attorney: Chapter 11, you file for bankruptcy all debts are cancelled. George Osmond: No. This family will not betray those who trusted and believed in us. We will not run from our debts. Olive Osmond: Jimmy came home with a bloody lip today. Some teenagers beat him up because he wouldn't smoke drugs with them. George Osmond: What's the matter with people these days? Everywhere the kids go they're being harassed. Olive Osmond: Did you know Marie hasn't eaten anything today? George Osmond: Is she sick? Olive Osmond: No. Some fool executive told her she was fat. George, I hate LA. It's no place to raise children. George Osmond: It's where the work is. Olive Osmond: Why can't the work be in Utah? George Osmond: Because it can't. Jay: Senior Prom. You ever wonder what that would've been like? Wayne: I swear. My kids are going to have a normal life. George Osmond: Boys, lets stay focused. We didn't leave Utah for fame and fortune. The whole point of singing Barber Shop was to raise money for your missions. George Osmond: [the family is eating at the dinner table] I spoke to Mike Curb today. He wants Donny to record a solo album. But they called it a spin off. You boys will back him up. Olive Osmond: That's wonderful. Young Marie Osmond: Congratulations, Donny. George Osmond: [Merrill is dissatisfied and leaves from the table] Merrill? What's the matter with him? Where's he going? Wayne: May I be excused? George Osmond: No, you may not! I deliver a piece of good news all of a sudden I got ego maniacs running from the table. [to Wayne] George Osmond: Alright go ahead. [Wayne gets up and leaves] George Osmond: Anyone else?
