No Regards[edit]

Lisa:
Kickin' It: A Musical Journey Through the Betty Ford Center.
Marge:
You know, when I was a girl, I always dreamed of being in a Broadway audience.
Actor 1:
How do you find the defendant?
Actress 1:
He's guilty of mayhem, exposure indecent...
Actor 2:
Freaked-out behavior both chronic and recent...
Ensemble:
Drinking and driving, narcotics posession...
Actor 2:
And that's just page one of this ten-page confession.
Actor 1:
I should put you away where you can't kill or maim us,
But this is L.A. and you're rich and famous.

You're Checkin' In[edit]

Actor 3:
I'm checkin' in.
Ensemble:
He's checkin' in.
Actor 3:
I'm checkin' in.
Ensemble:
Checkin', checkin' in.
Actor 3:
No more pills or alcohol,
No more pot or demerol,
No more stinkin' fun at all.
I'm checkin' in.
Ensemble:
He's checkin' in.
He's checkin' in.
Actor 4:
No more lookin' pale and thin,
No more bugs beneath your skin.
Actor 3:
Hey, that's just my aspirin!
Ensemble:
Chuck it out!
You're checkin' in!
Bart:
When I grow up, I wanna be in the Betty Ford Center.
Marge:
Better start saving now, it's very expensive.
Lisa:
Shh! They're strapping down Liza Minnelli.
