ELWOOD: The what?
JAKE: The Cadillac we used to have. The Bluesmobile.
ELWOOD: I traded it.
JAKE: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?
ELWOOD: No, for a microphone.
JAKE: A Microphone? Okay, I can see that. But what the hell is

city police auction last spring. It's an old Mount
Prospect police car! They were practically givin' 'em
away. [Mt Prospect is a NW suburb of Chicago.]
JAKE: Well, thank YOU pal! The day I get out of prison, my own
brother picks me up in a police car.
ELWOOD: You don't like it?
JAKE: No, I don't like it.
[Elwood jumps the drawbridge.]
JAKE: This car's got a lot of pickup.
ELWOOD: It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant. It's got

regular gas. Whaddaya say? Is it the new Bluesmobile or

JAKE: [Very slow and deliberate] NO FUCKING WAY!
[Jake and Elwood go upstairs]
[Elwood's about to knock.]
PENGUIN: Who is it?
ELWOOD: Jake and Elwood.
PENGUIN: Come in!
Hello boys. Nice to see you. Please, have a seat.
No, no, boys. Come over here in front of me. I want to
see your faces.
PENGUIN: The county took a tax assesment of this property last
month. They want 5000 dollars.
ELWOOD: Doesn't the church have to pay that?
PENGUIN: They would, if they were interested in keeping the place,
but they aren't. The archbishop wants to sell this

PENGUIN: I'll be sent to the missions.
JAKE: Forget it. Five grand? No problem. We'll have it for

Son of a Bitch!
Jesus H. Christ.
ELWOOD: Oh, you fat penguin!
JAKE: Fuck this noise, man!
[At bottom of stairs]
PENGUIN: You're such a disappointing pair. I prayed so hard for
you. It saddens and hurts me that the two young men whom
I raised to believe in The Ten Commandments have returned
to me as two thieves with filthy mouths and bad attitudes.
Get out! And don't come back until you've redeemed
CURTIS: Boys, you gotta learn not to talk to nuns that way.
JAKE: You're lookin' fine man. Good to see you man.
CURTIS: Hey, buy you boys a drink?
CURTIS: Boys.. things are bad.. they're gonna sell this place to
the Board of Education, and I'll be out on the street.
That money's gotta be in the Cook County Assessor's office
withing 11 days.
JAKE: They wouldn't turn you out, would they?
CURTIS: Shiiiit. What's one more ol' nigger to the Board of
ELWOOD: Curtis, you and the penguin are the only family we got.
You're the only one that was ever good to us. Singin'

CURTIS: Well, the sister was right; you boys could use a little
churchin' up. Slide on over to the Triple Rock and catch
Reverend Cleophus. You boys listen to what he's got to say.
JAKE: Curtis, [Jake swigs and puts glass down] I don't wanna

Though the lord take the souls, without them seein' 'em on
the earth, seekin' the fine light! They will not find!
Because it is too late!! Too late!! Yeah! Too late to

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Don't be lost when the time comes!
Dont be lost when the time comes!
For the day of the lord cometh, as a theif in the night!
AMEN! Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Well Well Well!!

mile long. And he's a Cath-o-lic.
HEAD NAZI: Did you get his address?
NAZI AID: Of course. 1060 West Addison.
HEAD NAZI: Let's go!
Outside Wrigley Field
[Sign reads: Home of the Chicago Cubs.

HEAD NAZI: Anyone with that kind of record is going to make a
mistake. I want all party members in the Tri-State
district to monitor the city, county, and state police on
their CBs. Mr Blues is gonna fuck up. And when he does,
he'd better hope the police get to him before we do.
