The Temptations (1998)
Charles Malik Whitfield: Otis Williams
Otis Williams : Temptations... Forever
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.
David Ruffin : "And I refuse to let you go." Yeah, David Ruffin And The Temptations. Whatcha think?
Otis Williams : [stands up] That ain't never gonna happen.
Otis Williams : [after David has jumped up on stage with the Temptations] David, are you out of your damn mind? I will whoop your ass!
David Ruffin : I'm back! I quit all that stuff, O.
Eddie Kendricks : I told you he was clean.
Otis Williams : I don't care!
David Ruffin : [takes off his glasses] Look, I'm straight, man. Can't you see I'm straight?
Eddie Kendricks : He's straight. Listen to him.
David Ruffin : I'm back in the group, O. Tell me I'm back in the group.
Otis Williams : You ain't in this group. Don't you get it? You blew it!
Eddie Kendricks : The crowd went wild when he jumped on stage.
Otis Williams : He's the one who blew it, Corn!
David Ruffin : Paul... Corn... Blue, baby, all I'm asking y'all is for another chance. Come on now!
Melvin Franklin : David, I'm sorry, but you got to go.
Otis Williams : Get out or get carried out.
David Ruffin : I ain't goin' nowhere! You said I was a Temp for life. How 'bout that promise, huh O?
Otis Williams : You ain't no Temptation no more!
[Otis tries to beat up David, but Melvin holds him back]
Otis Williams : Oh yeah, not the same but nominated for a Grammy!
Otis Williams : No, no. That ain't you on "Cloud Nine" now that's Dennis' voice!
