Quincy learns that Maggie wants to be a dancer, and goes off with her to a friend in the business.
Lou shows up in an overstressed state and kicks the new diner. Angelo the balloonman also appears. Tom looks for a job there and is turned down.

The scene shifts to Maggie and Quincy on the street, heading for the dance tryout. Quincy sings: High Livin'


Quincy:  It's dreams again.  The good life.  (Song)
               I want a Cadillac 8, I want a home on the lake,
               high livin',
               I want to buy lots of stuff, I just can't get enough,
               high livin',
               We'll go out on the town, just fooling around,
               Maybe I'll buy you a new evening gown,
               Won't it be fun, hey, when we have the money,
               High livin'.

               I'd like to know how it feels to have a mansion on
          wheels,
               high livin',
               With a stereo tv, and a couple jet skis,
               high livin',
               A cabin cruiser in tow, we'd be on the go,
               Having fun from Alaska to Mexico,
               Won't it be funny, when we have the money,
               High livin'

               Or maybe we'd stay in our country estate,
               High livin',
               With the money that's left, we'd get a French Chef,
               High living',
               With a butler and maid, so the beds would get made,
               We'd eat by the swimming pool so we could wade
               Won't it be funny, when we have the money,
               High livin'.

               How bout a trip for two, to see kangaroos,
               High livin',
               If Australia stinks, we'll visit the Sphinx,
               High livin',
               Or maybe it's finer, over in China,

Maggie: It's amazing the money you make from a diner.
Quincy: Won't it be funny, when we have the money, High livin'. (End)

Lou is still out on the street when Maggie returns, distraught.  It turns out Quincy's friend was into Exotic Dancing... They finish falling in love with: Life Should Be More than Just a  Song and a Dance

Life should be more than just a song and a dance,
It could mean taking a chance on you,
I'm not just talking 'bout some quick romance
It'd just be leaving me lonesome and blue.
Life should be more than just a rush to the top,
Cause the top would be empty without you,
 So I'm concedin', I'll listen to reason, and give up my
whole life for you.
          (Instr.  break)

Lou: Life should be more than just puttin' in hours,
It could mean walking in showers with you.
Life should be more than putting food on the plate,
I'm all for staying out late, with you!
Life should be more than being fully insured,
I don't know how I endured it without you,
Duet: So I'm concedin' I'll listen to reason, And give up my whole life for you.

Not content with that, They sing: I just Knew (midi)     mp3

Lou: I just knew someday I'd want to hold you.
And I hoped you'd want to hold me, too.
I just didn't know it would be love, sweet love,
I didn't know I'd fall so hard for you.
Lou and Maggie: And it's love, sweet love, it's not just something different,
I want to spend my life with you.
You're love, sweet love, not just someone different,
I want to spend my life with you.
Lou: Yesterday you were another woman,
Now today you are my only one,
Maggie: I just know we wouldn't have been human,
Not to have loved like we both have done,
Lou and Maggie: And it's love, sweet love, it's not just something different,
I want to spend my life with you.
You're love, sweet love, not just someone different,
I want to spend my life with you.
Lou: You said that you couldn't really love me
Maggie: Till you loved so true, I had to try.
Lou: Now you never want to live without me,
Maggie: When I'm without you I just want to cry,
Lou and Maggie: And it's love, sweet love, it's not just something different,
I want to spend my life with you.
You're love, sweet love, not just someone different,
I want to spend my life with you.
