Pitch Perfect

00:00:49Now, this is exactly the type of performance you would expect to see
00:00:52at the international Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
00:00:55Am I right, Gail?
00:00:57John, you're so right, everything else seems wrong.
00:00:59Boy, these Barden University Treblemakers always thrill the judges.
00:01:02And the ladies in the room cannot get enough.
00:01:04So true, John.
00:01:06Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy.
00:01:36Chloe, look at you. You're a mess. You're unfocused. You're unreliable.
00:01:41And your breath smells like egg. Like, all the time.
00:01:45I can't believe the Bellas are being passed on to you two slut bags after we graduate.
00:01:49Just don't eff up your solo.
00:01:51I won't disappoint you.
00:01:52My dad always says, "if you're not here to win,"
00:01:54"get the hell out of Kuwait."
00:01:56Has your dad ever told you to shut up?
00:02:02I'm fine.
00:02:13Ouch! Boy, that hurt.
00:02:14Sexy man-splits.
00:02:16His pain is our gain, Gail.
00:02:34All right, good luck, guys!
00:02:38Good luck out there!
00:02:40Seriously, you girls are awesome... ly horrible.
00:02:44I hate you. Kill yourselves. Girl power! Sisters before misters!
00:02:50All right, ladies, it's now or never. Hands in!
00:02:54One, two...
00:02:58Up now, the Barden Bellas!
00:03:02Well, the Bellas tonight are making history
00:03:04as the first ever all-female group to advance to the ICCA finals.
00:03:08That's right, John. Now, why do you think it's taken so long
00:03:10for an all-lady group to break through that a cappella glass ceiling?
00:03:13Well, Gail, the women, typically, cannot hit the low notes,
00:03:16which really round out an arrangement, thrill the judges,
00:03:19and that can really hurt them in competition.
00:03:21Women are about as good at a cappella as they are at being doctors.
00:03:29One, two, three, four.
00:04:01Is it me or did we just take a left turn into Snoozeville?
00:04:04Yeah, and we parked in a lot where they do not validate.
00:04:16No! Holy...
00:04:18This is a surprise!
00:04:19This has never happened! Now, this is how you bring some excitement
00:04:22to the international Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
00:04:25She had a week's worth of lunch and lost it.
00:04:28Well, she didn't lose it. We know exactly where it is.
00:04:30It's all over the third row. No, no...
00:05:45I got it. Thanks.
00:05:55Hi there! Welcome to Barden University. What dorm?
00:05:58Baker Hall, I think.
00:05:59Okay. So, what you're gonna do is you're gonna go down this way,
00:06:02you're gonna take a right and you go through those double doors...
00:06:15Your campus map.
00:06:16And your official BU rape whistle.
00:06:19Don't blow it unless it's actually happening.
00:06:57Hey.
00:07:00You must be Kimmy Jin. I'm Beca.
00:07:04No English?
00:07:07Yes English?
00:07:09Just tell me where you're at with English.
00:07:17There he is. I'm Benji. You must be Jesse.
00:07:20And you must be kidding. Wow!
00:07:24Looking at it now, I can see that it's a bit much.
00:07:27I can take it down.
00:07:28No, no way. I mean, it took a second for my eyes to adjust,
00:07:31but I can roll with this.
00:07:32Look, just so you know, I'm not a total nerd.
00:07:34I also happen to be super into close-up magic.
00:07:40Dude, that's awesome!
00:07:42How long was that little guy in there?
00:07:44Several days.
00:07:58Hey, this is campus police. Hide your wine coolers.
00:08:04Just... it's your old man making a funny.
00:08:07Chris Rock, everybody.
00:08:09Hey, you must be Beca's roommate.
00:08:11I'm Dr. Mitchell, Beca's dad.
00:08:14I teach Comparative Literature here.
00:08:20So, when did you get here? How did you get here?
00:08:23Took a cab. Didn't wanna inconvenience you and Sheila.
00:08:26How is the stepmonster?
00:08:28She is fine, thank you for asking. She's actually in Vegas at a conference...
00:08:32No, Dad, I don't actually care. L just wanted to say "stepmonster."
00:08:38So, have you guys been out on the quad yet?
00:08:40In the springtime, all the students study on the grass.
00:08:43I don't wanna study on the grass, Dad.
00:08:44I need to move to LA and get a job at a record label
00:08:47and start paying my dues.
00:08:48Here we go again. You know, Beca,
00:08:50DJing is not a profession, it's a hobby.
00:08:53Unless you're Rick Dees or someone awesome.
00:08:56That's not... l...
00:08:59I wanna produce music. I wanna make music, Dad.
00:09:02But you're going to get a college education first.
00:09:05For free, I might add. End of story.
00:09:09I'm going to the Activities Fair.
00:09:12Me, too. I'm going to the Activities Fair with my super-good friend, Kimmy Jin.
00:09:28Taking names, taking numbers. Join our righteous frat.
00:09:31If you ain't pledging Sigma Beta, you ain't worth no crap.
00:09:36That's a double negative. That's a lot of negatives.
00:09:39Follow me. There's only one group on this campus worth joining.
00:09:42As far as Barden goes, that's what being a man's all about.
00:09:59The Treblemakers.
00:10:00The rock stars of a cappella, the messiahs of Barden.
00:10:03Well, you know, not including athletes, frat guys, or actual cool people.
00:10:08Organized nerd singing. This is great.
00:10:11Yeah, it makes so much sense. How's your voice?
00:10:18Nice.
00:10:23I will stop at nothing to take those ding-a-lings down.
00:10:27Hey, Barb. You gonna audition this year? We have openings.
00:10:30Now that you've puked your way to the bottom,
00:10:31you might actually consider me?
00:10:33I auditioned for you three times and never got in
00:10:35because you said my boobs look like baloney.
00:10:39The word's out. Bellas is the laughing stock of a cappella.
00:10:43Good luck auditioning this year. Douche-b's.
00:10:48My God. This is a travesty.
00:10:51God, if we can't even recruit Baloney Barb, then we can't get anybody.
00:10:54Just take the dramatics down a notch, okay? Hi, do you wanna...
00:10:56Well, you're the one who got us into this hot mess.
00:10:58We'll be fine.
00:10:59I am confident that we will find
00:11:01eight super-hot girls with bikini-ready bodies
00:11:04who can harmonize and have perfect pitch. Okay?
00:11:07Hi, would you like to be a member of...
00:11:11Just keep flyering. We have tradition to uphold.
00:11:15How about we just get good singers?
00:11:17What? Good singers? What? Hi.
00:11:20Can you sing? Yeah.
00:11:22Can you read music? Yeah.
00:11:24Can you match pitch? Try me.
00:11:40Yeah.
00:11:53That was a really good start.
00:11:55I'm the best singer in Tasmania. With teeth.
00:11:59Love it. What's your name?
00:12:00Fat Amy.
00:12:01Um... You call yourself Fat Amy?
00:12:05Yeah, so twig bitches like you don't do it behind my back.
00:12:11I will see you in auditions, Fat Amy.
00:12:17I can sing but I'm also good at modern dance,
00:12:20olden dance, and mermaid dancing,
00:12:24which is a little different.
00:12:26You usually start on the ground.
00:12:29Ooh.
00:12:30It's a lot of floor work. I see that.
00:12:42Yeah, DJs. Deaf Jews.
00:12:50Shalom!
00:12:51That's not a real word but keep trying.
00:12:54You will get there.
00:12:56Not a lot of Jewish people where you're from?
00:12:59No. I did do Fiddler on the Roof, though, in high school.
00:13:02It was, like, me and some Aboriginals. It was really Jewish.
00:13:06It was full-on Jew.
00:13:09Hey, guys. All right, I'll give you my number.
00:13:16What about her?
00:13:18I don't know. She looks a little too alternative for us.
00:13:22Hi, any interest in joining our a cappella group?
00:13:25Right, this is, like, a thing now.
00:13:28Totes. We sing covers of songs but we do it without any instruments.
00:13:33It's all from our mouths.
00:13:34Yikes.
00:13:36There's four groups on campus. The Bellas. That's us. We're the tits.
00:13:40The BU Harmonics.
00:13:41They sing a lot of Madonna.
00:13:44The High Notes.
00:13:46They're not particularly motivated.
00:13:50And then there's...
00:13:57So, are you interested?
00:14:00Sorry, it just, it's pretty lame.
00:14:02A-ca-scuse me?
00:14:04Synchronized lady dancing to a Mariah Carey chart topper is not lame.
00:14:08We sing all over the world and we compete in national championships.
00:14:11On purpose?
00:14:13We played the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, you bitch!
00:14:18What Aubrey means to say is that we are a close-knit,
00:14:21talented group of ladies whose dream is
00:14:23to return to the national finals at Lincoln Center this year.
00:14:27Help us turn our dreams into a reality?
00:14:30Sorry, I don't even sing, but it was really nice to meet you guys.
00:14:38What are we gonna do?
00:14:41When you came in and you were just strumming the guitar,
00:14:43and it was, like, totally off-key, I wanted to choke you!
00:14:46Bumper. I wanted to choke you out!
00:14:48Okay, I'm gonna go introduce myself.
00:14:50Everybody be cool. It's just a normal day.
00:14:55Hi. Hi.
00:14:58Benjamin Applebaum.
00:14:59I saw you guys perform at a Mall of America like three years ago.
00:15:02Totally changed my life. I have not stopped thinking about you since.
00:15:06Thank you. Yeah.
00:15:07And, Bumper, huge fan.
00:15:10Your arrangement of Lovin' Spoonful's Do You Believe in Magic
00:15:13inspired me to become a certified illusionist.
00:15:18Wow.
00:15:19The smell of your weird is actually affecting my vocal cords,
00:15:22so I'm gonna need you to scoot. Skedaddle.
00:15:25But why don't we just exchange emails,
00:15:27and then totally hang out right now, together?
00:15:29No. Hard pass. Hard pass.
00:15:33What a nerd alert. Okay, guys, now let's match pitch.
00:15:41Too far. You think?
00:15:42Yeah. Should I have done another trick?
00:15:44No, I think your trick was fine. I just think the talking was a little weird.
00:15:47Maybe you can try to Facebook message him.
00:15:58Hey, I'm Beca.
00:16:00Over there. Thanks.
00:16:10Ninety-five point seven, WBUJ, music for the independent mind.
00:16:35Hey. Hi.
00:16:37Have you been standing there long?
00:16:39No. No, I just got here, I wasn't just standing here.
00:16:45Freshmen aren't allowed in the booth. Sorry.
00:16:47I'm Luke. Station manager. You must be Becky the intern?
00:16:51Lt's...
00:16:52Hey, man, what's up? I'm Jesse.
00:16:54I'm Luke. You're late.
00:16:58Hey. I know you.
00:16:59No, you don't. Yeah, I do.
00:17:01He doesn't. Totally know her.
00:17:02Okay, cool. Well, you guys can figure it out while you're stacking CDs.
00:17:05When you're done, there's more.
00:17:07Now, you guys will be spending a lot of down time together, so please, just
00:17:11no sex on the desk.
00:17:12I've been burned before.
00:17:16I do know you. I sang to you. L remember because you were in a taxi.
00:17:20Wait, is your dad a taxi driver? No.
00:17:29This sucks. I wanted to play music.
00:17:31Not me. I'm here for one reason only. I really love stacking CDs.
00:17:38So, what's your deal?
00:17:39You one of those girls who's all dark and mysterious,
00:17:43then she takes off her glasses and that amazingly scary ear spike
00:17:45and you realize that, you know, she was beautiful the whole time.
00:17:48I don't wear glasses. Then you're halfway there.
00:18:37Beca.
00:18:39Beca, wake up.
00:18:42Funny, this doesn't look like your lntro to Philosophy class.
00:18:46I'm posing an important philosophical question.
00:18:49If I don't actually go to that class, will it still suck?
00:18:52Look, honey. College is... it's great.
00:18:55You get to create memories here, I see it every day.
00:18:58You just have to give it a chance.
00:19:00You've been here, what, a month now? Do you have any friends?
00:19:04Kimmy Jin is my friend. No.
00:19:07You gotta get out there, Bec. You gotta try something.
00:19:11I got a job at the radio station.
00:19:12Great, that place.
00:19:13Yeah, it's dark and dirty and has like, what, those three weirdos who work there?
00:19:18Well, four now.
00:19:20You gotta try something new, Bec. Join one club on campus.
00:19:23And if, at the end of a year, you still don't wanna be here,
00:19:27you still wanna go off to LA and be P. Diddy,
00:19:31well, then, you can quit college.
00:19:34And I will help you move to LA.
00:19:37Seriously? Yes, seriously.
00:19:39But I really need to see it, Beca.
00:19:41This is college. Join in.
00:20:22You can sing! Dude!
00:20:25How high does your belt go? My what?
00:20:27My God! You have to audition for the Bellas.
00:20:30I can't concentrate on anything you're saying until you cover your junk.
00:20:32Just consider it.
00:20:34One time, we sang backup for Prince.
00:20:37His butt is so tiny that I can hold it with, like, one hand.
00:20:40Oops!
00:20:42Seriously. I am nude.
00:20:45You were singing Titanium, right?
00:20:48You know David Guetta? Have I been living under a rock? Yeah.
00:20:51That song is my jam.
00:20:54My lady-jam.
00:20:55That's nice.
00:20:57It is. That song really builds.
00:21:01Gross. Can you sing it for me?
00:21:03Dude, no. Get out!
00:21:05Not for that reason. I'm not leaving here till you sing. So...
00:21:56Yeah. I'm pretty confident about all this.
00:22:02You should be.
00:22:09Still need to shower.
00:22:13You have a lovely voice.
00:22:14Thanks.
00:22:21Yeah. See you at auditions!
00:22:24For your audition, each of you will be singing sixteen bars
00:22:27of Kelly Clarkson's Since You've Been Gone.
00:22:29If a group likes you, they will contact you directly.
00:22:32My tone-deaf sidekick Justin here will be collecting your information.
00:22:36If I could sing a lick, in any human way possible,
00:22:38I would, but I can't.
00:22:40And I hate myself every day because of it! I know.
00:22:45But if you think this is just some high school club,
00:22:47where you can sing and dance your way through any big social issue,
00:22:52or confused sexuality,
00:22:54you have come to the wrong place.
00:22:56There is none of that here.
00:22:59That's high school.
00:23:00This shit is real life!
00:23:03Now, don't just bring it, sing it. And let's do this.
00:23:14Hey, Bellas, remember when you tried to play in the big leagues and you choked?
00:23:18That should really be a lesson to everyone.
00:23:20If you sing the same boring, girly shit every year,
00:23:23you will blow chunks. All over the place.
00:23:25Vomit everywhere.
00:23:27My fellow a-ca-people.
00:23:29We will not let egotistical, big-headed, garbage dirtballs,
00:23:34whoever you may be, get in our way.
00:23:37I promise you,
00:23:38we will return to the lCCAs and finish what we started last year.
00:23:44And here's the first one up. Good luck.
00:23:47Whenever you're ready, dude.
00:23:51Yeah, hi, my name is Cynthia Rose.
00:23:54Not a dude. It's not a dude.
00:24:22There's no backup dancers? Okay.
00:24:25Hello. My name is Lilly Onakuramara. I have gills like a fish.
00:24:30I'm sorry. What was that?
00:24:33Hello. My name is Lilly Onakuramara. I was born with gills like a fish.
00:24:41One, two, three, four.
00:25:00Hi, everybody, my name is Stacie.
00:25:02My hobbies include cuticle care and the E! Network.
00:25:24It's high.
00:25:28Jesus.
00:26:12Thank you.
00:26:14Performing live gives me such a rush.
00:26:23Crushed it.
00:26:24Okay. That is everybody. I'm really not that impressed this year, guys.
00:26:32Wait, there's one more.
00:26:34Hi.
00:26:36Hello.
00:26:38Um...
00:26:39I didn't know we had to prepare that song.
00:26:41That's okay. Sing anything you want.
00:26:47May I?
00:27:46Wow.
00:27:47The sopranos. Jessica, Mary Elise, Lilly.
00:27:51The mezzos. Cynthia Rose, Stacie, Kori.
00:27:55And our altos. Fat Amy, Denise, Ashley, and Beca.
00:28:01We shall begin by drinking the blood of the sisters that came before you.
00:28:08Dude, no. Don't worry, it's Boone's Farm.
00:28:12Well, well, well, look who's in treble.
00:28:17Classic pun. I know.
00:28:23No Benji?
00:28:25Now, if you'll place your scarves in your right hand.
00:28:30L, sing your name...
00:28:32I...
00:28:37promise to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of a Bella woman.
00:28:42Promise to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of a Bella woman.
00:28:46And I solemnly promise to never have sexual relations with a Treblemaker
00:28:50or may my vocal cords be ripped out by wolves.
00:28:54And I solemnly promise to never have sexual relations with a Treblemaker
00:28:59or may my vocal cords be ripped out by wolves.
00:29:04You are all Bellas now.
00:29:10We did it.
00:29:12I want some more of this.
00:29:15Did we?
00:29:21Ladies, welcome to a-ca-initiation night.
00:29:25Prepare to soften the beach.
00:29:30I don't know what I'm doing here.
00:29:32Just living the dream. I still can't believe they let my sexy fat ass in.
00:29:35Beca! Beca!
00:29:38Wow.
00:29:39Be-caw! Be-caw.
00:29:42Do my eyes deceive me or are you a Barden Bella?
00:29:45No. You're one of those a cappella girls,
00:29:47I'm one of those a cappella boys, and we're gonna have a-ca-children.
00:29:51It's inevitable. You're really drunk right now.
00:29:53I don't think you're gonna remember any of this.
00:29:54No. I'm not drunk at all, you're just blurry.
00:29:55You okay? Yeah? Yeah.
00:29:57You almost fell over? No, she didn't. You know, I could...
00:29:59Can you pass a sobriety test right now? Yep.
00:30:01Can you stand up straight? See how I come right back?
00:30:02And I come right back. Right. Wow.
00:30:05Can I get you a drink?
00:30:06It sounds great.
00:30:08I'm gonna get you a drink. Go for it.
00:30:09I think you need to get on this level.
00:30:12Please be careful.
00:30:13Hi.
00:30:15I am so glad that I met you.
00:30:18I think that we're gonna be really fast friends.
00:30:21Yeah. Well, you saw me naked, so... Yeah.
00:30:24Yeah. Yeah, ladies. Gather around. Ready for a show.
00:30:29Come on, baby bubble, wait in line. Yep. Yeah.
00:30:32You want some of this. I know you do.
00:30:34Nice. Mmm-Bumper and Donald.
00:30:38Getting it.
00:30:42You know, so there's like 10 of us. Mmm...
00:30:45That means that one of us is probably a lesbian.
00:30:48You think? Which one do you think it is?
00:30:50My money's on Black Beauty.
00:30:52So, when I drink too much tonight,
00:30:54can I count on you to hold my hair back if I puke?
00:31:00Don't tell her I said that.
00:31:02All right. I'm gonna go get a drink. This ginger needs her jiggle juice.
00:31:06See you later. Make good choices.
00:31:09I thought of a new name for this hairstyle.
00:31:12It's called the Orthodox Jew ponytail.
00:31:14Yeah?
00:31:16'Cause it's very reserved at the front... l see that.
00:31:18But party in the back. I see these happening here.
00:31:32Here's the real question.
00:31:33Who would be easier to sleep with?
00:31:35Captain America or a great white shark?
00:31:37Great white shark. I wouldn't... Hey.
00:31:38What are you turd burgers talking about?
00:31:40Dressing for comfort?
00:31:42You are probably the grossest human being I've ever seen.
00:31:47Well, you're no panty-dropper yourself.
00:31:50So I have a feeling that we should kiss.
00:31:54And is that feeling a good feeling or an incorrect feeling?
00:31:58Well, I sometimes have a feeling I can do crystal meth,
00:32:00but then I think, "Better not." Yeah.
00:32:13I don't know the words, but I can...
00:32:16Thank you.
00:32:19This is awesome.
00:32:21It's definitely something.
00:32:22We are the kings of campus!
00:32:51Man, the old Bellas was hot!
00:32:53Yeah, they kept it tight.
00:32:55Okay. Sopranos in the front and altos in the back.
00:32:59As you can see, Kori is not here.
00:33:02Last night she was Treble-boned.
00:33:04She has been disinvited from the Bellas.
00:33:06That oath was serious?
00:33:08Dixie Chicks serious.
00:33:10You can fool around with whoever you want to, just not a Treble.
00:33:13That's not gonna be easy. He's a hunter.
00:33:16You call it a dude?
00:33:18Stacie, the Trebles don't respect us,
00:33:21and if we let them penetrate us,
00:33:24Not a good enough reason to use the word "penetrate."
00:33:27So, does anyone here have anything to confess?
00:33:38It was an accident. I...
00:33:40Turn in your scarf and go.
00:33:56Slut.
00:33:59Take your chair.
00:34:13Was that necessary?
00:34:14This is war, Beca,
00:34:17and it is my job to make sure that my soldiers are prepped at go time
00:34:20with three kick-ass songs sung and choreographed to perfection.
00:34:24And there are only four months until regionals.
00:34:26So, if you have a problem with the way that I run the Bellas,
00:34:28then you should just...
00:34:33Don't stress, Aubrey. Relax.
00:34:35We don't want a repeat of what happened last year.
00:34:40What happened last year?
00:34:41What are you saying?
00:34:43What happened last year?
00:34:47And do you guys wanna see a dead body?
00:35:00Click on "Guy Pukes on Cat."
00:35:01Enough! It happened. It's over.
00:35:04We will practice every day for at least two hours, seven days a week.
00:35:08And I trust you will add your own cardio.
00:35:10Why cardio? Yeah, no, don't put me down for cardio.
00:35:13Okay, moving on.
00:35:15This is a list of all of the songs that we have ever performed.
00:35:18And you will notice that we only do songs made famous by women.
00:35:22There's nothing from this century on here.
00:35:23Because we don't stray from tradition.
00:35:27Now, this is how we will become champions.
00:35:50Come on, girls! Let's go!
00:35:52Go, go, go! Pick up your knees!
00:35:54Faster, faster! One, two, one, two, one, two!
00:35:56Knees up, knees up! Go, go! Go! Let's get it.
00:36:00Yes, Chloe. Nice. Amy!
00:36:05What are you doing?
00:36:07I'm doing horizontal running.
00:36:09Horizontal running?
00:36:20No.
00:36:23No, no.
00:36:28No.
00:36:55I know... I can do it.
00:37:08Five, six, seven, eight.
00:37:12Okay, I'm calling it.
00:37:16Thank God. I asked to go to the bathroom three hours ago.
00:37:19Nothing. I hear nothing.
00:37:23Hey, Aubrey. Did we just learn the same choreography from that video?
00:37:27Okay. Don't forget to pick up your performance schedules.
00:37:29We have a gig next week. That's right. Next week.
00:37:33You guys, it's the Sigma Beta Theta's Annual Fall Mixer.
00:37:36Okay. Hands in, Bellas.
00:37:41Hands in, a-ca-bitches! Okay.
00:37:44Sing "" on three...
00:37:48No, no, no. It's actually on three, Fat Amy.
00:37:54All right. On three.
00:37:56One, two...
00:38:02Okay, we will work on that first thing next time.
00:38:05Okay, guys. Thank you. Goodbye.
00:38:07She has man hands.
00:38:08Beca, a word?
00:38:11What's up?
00:38:13You know you'll have to take those ear monstrosities out for the Fall Mixer.
00:38:16You really don't like me, do you?
00:38:18I don't like your attitude. You don't even know me.
00:38:20I know you have a toner for Jesse.
00:38:22A what?
00:38:24A toner.
00:38:25A musical boner. I saw it at Hood Night. It's distracting.
00:38:28Yeah, that's not a thing and you're not the boss of me. So...
00:38:32You took an oath.
00:38:34That oath cost you two girls already today.
00:38:37I'm pretty sure you need me more than I need you.
00:38:43I can see your toner through those jeans.
00:38:44That's my dick.
00:38:49Everything okay?
00:38:51We better have our shit together for SBT.
00:38:54I'm not worried. I think we're gonna be a-ca-awesome.
00:39:22This makes my beer taste bad.
00:39:30I'm gonna stop this.
00:39:32Whoa, whoa. Just stop. Stop.
00:39:38I am so sorry, Howie. I know we're not performance ready.
00:39:41I wanted the hot Bellas, not this barnyard explosion.
00:39:46I'm not paying for this. Let's go. Come on. God.
00:39:49Well, I hope you all remember the way you feel right now,
00:39:51so you will never wanna feel this way again.
00:39:54Chloe, your voice didn't sound Aguilerian at all.
00:39:57Chloe, for serious, what is wrong with you?
00:40:00I have nodes.
00:40:02What? My God. I found out this morning.
00:40:06What are nodes?
00:40:07Vocal nodules.
00:40:09The rubbing together of your vocal cords at above-average rates
00:40:12without proper lubrication.
00:40:14They sit on your windpipe and they crush your dreams.
00:40:16Isn't that painful? Why would you keep performing?
00:40:19Because I love to sing.
00:40:21Yeah, it's like when my lady doctor told me not to have sex for six weeks,
00:40:24and I did it anyway.
00:40:25You should really listen to your doctor.
00:40:28The key is early diagnosis.
00:40:32I am living with nodes.
00:40:34But I am a survivor.
00:40:36I just have to pull back. Because I am limited.
00:40:41Because I have nodes.
00:40:43Chloe, this is horrible.
00:40:45Well, at least it's not herpes.
00:40:49Or do you have that as well?
00:41:35Jesse? Yeah.
00:41:36I'm starving, so could you...
00:41:38You want me to get you lunch?
00:41:40You should probably lay off the burgers.
00:41:42You're not gonna be 22 forever, you know.
00:41:45Yeah, I think I'm good.
00:41:47He's good. You're good.
00:41:50And the chess match continues.
00:41:57Hey, this is my new mix,
00:41:59so if there's anything you wanted to play...
00:42:01Yeah, okay, I'll put it on the pile.
00:42:03Okay.
00:42:10What's up, weirdo?
00:42:12Okay.
00:42:16What's this? As much as I love
00:42:18spending time with you stacking CDs... And I do.
00:42:20I love it, like, more than life.
00:42:23I figured we could do some other fun things
00:42:25that don't make us wanna kill ourselves, right?
00:42:26Yeah. So, brought some movies.
00:42:30Jaws, E.T., The Breakfast Club, Star Wars and Rocky.
00:42:35Best scored and soundtracked movies of all time.
00:42:38That's what I wanna do when I grow up. I wanna score movies.
00:42:42Bring people to tears, you know. Blow their minds.
00:42:44I feel like only music can do that.
00:42:46Yeah.
00:42:48You must really sweep your girlfriend off her feet.
00:42:49I don't have a girlfriend.
00:42:51What? No.
00:42:52You have juice pouches and Rocky.
00:42:54Okay, so what do you wanna watch first?
00:42:57Wanna do something else?
00:42:58We could relive my parents' divorce.
00:43:01Or visit a gynecologist.
00:43:03What, do you not like movies or something?
00:43:06Like, any movies? You don't...
00:43:07What the hell is wrong with you? How do you not like movies?
00:43:11Not liking movies is like not liking puppies.
00:43:14They're fine. I just get bored and never make it to the end.
00:43:16The endings are the best part.
00:43:19They're predictable. Like, the guy gets the girl,
00:43:21and that kid sees dead people and Darth Vader is Luke's father.
00:43:25Okay, right, so you just happened to guess the biggest cinematic reveal in history?
00:43:29"Vader" in German means father.
00:43:32His name is literally "Darth Father."
00:43:35Huh.
00:43:37So, you know German.
00:43:38Well, now I know why you don't like fun things.
00:43:41You know, you need a movie education.
00:43:43You need a movie-cation. And I'm gonna give it to you.
00:43:46Yeah, in between Bella rehearsals, which are always.
00:43:49Are you guys getting ready for the riff-off?

00:44:15When they rocked out at the Schnee Performing Arts Center.

00:48:14I can't get her out of my mind.

00:49:03It's a tough blow, ladies.
00:49:04The word you needed to match was "it." And you sang, "it's."
00:49:08You are... Cut off!
00:49:11Are you serious? The Trebles win!
00:49:13Beca, I'm sorry. You lost.
00:49:16I've never heard that rule! Ladies, ladies, come on. Come back.
00:49:20Sorry.
00:49:22Money in the bank.
00:49:25Enjoy watching us win the lCCAs.
00:49:28On the TV. On a regional cable affiliate.
00:49:33Before everybody goes to bed tonight,
00:49:34I need you to make a list of everything you did wrong.
00:49:36I'm gonna melt that Cabbage Patch Kid.
00:49:38Hey, guys, what we just did was great, right?
00:49:41Calm your pits, Beca. We still lost.
00:49:43Yeah, but it was spontaneous. It was awesome.
00:49:46We were actually listening to...
00:49:47Okay, everybody, hands in.
00:49:48"" On my count.
00:49:50On three or after three? On three.
00:49:52After three. One, two, three.
00:49:54That's not how we do it.
00:49:55Why can't we figure this out?
00:50:01So, I just find songs that have the same chord progressions
00:50:03and create a track that blends them together.
00:50:05So, like, this is the new bass line,
00:50:08and this is matching up downbeats.
00:50:13I'm talking really loud.
00:50:16That's me singing.
00:50:28This is really good.
00:50:30Now I'm the one yelling, right?
00:50:34That is amazing, Beca.
00:50:36Thanks.
00:50:38So, I brought this over,
00:50:41because I wanna watch you watch the end of this movie.
00:50:45And then I can die a hero.
00:50:51Wait, actually...
00:50:54You have a habit of making yourself at home, did you know that?
00:50:56Yeah.
00:51:05Okay.
00:51:08The Breakfast Club. 1985.
00:51:10Greatest ending to any movie ever.
00:51:13This song launched Simple Minds in the US.
00:51:16Could have been a Billy ldol song, but he turned it down.
00:51:19Idiot.
00:51:21Perfectly sums up the movie. It's equally beautiful and sad.
00:51:27That is fascinating.
00:51:28Right?
00:51:30Tell me, what does Judd Nelson eat for breakfast?
00:51:33Well, like all misunderstood rebels, he feeds on hypocrisy.
00:51:36Sure.
00:51:38And black coffee to help with his morning dumps.
00:51:42You're an idiot.
00:51:43It's true. I'm full of fun facts.
00:51:45You should let other people tell you they're fun.
00:51:48And an athlete.
00:51:49And a basket case.
00:51:51A princess.
00:51:52And a criminal.
00:51:54Does that answer your question?
00:51:57Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.
00:52:05You're missing the ending.
00:52:07Sorry.
00:52:18It's good. I'm sure the beginning is...
00:52:24The white girl is back.
00:52:30And I'm out.
00:52:35Always a pleasure, Kimmy Jin.
00:52:40So... Excuse me. Excuse me.
00:52:57I should have taken that cardio tip more seriously.
00:53:00How much have you done?
00:53:01You just saw it.
00:53:03Chloe, you gotta be able to hit that last note.
00:53:05I can't. It's impossible.
00:53:07And it's because of my, my nodes.
00:53:09Her nodes. Her nodes.
00:53:10Well, if you can't do it, then someone else needs to solo.
00:53:13I think Beca should take my solo.
00:53:15Yeah, Beca would be excellent.
00:53:18But also, someone else might be equally as excellent.
00:53:22It's true. And they might be shy
00:53:25and not wanna come forward and say they wanted a solo.
00:53:28Well, Beca doesn't want a solo, so...
00:53:31I would be happy to do it
00:53:33if I got to pick a new song and do an arrangement.
00:53:34Well, that's not how we run things here.
00:53:37Aubrey, maybe Beca has a point. Maybe we could try something new.
00:53:39A-ca-scuse me?
00:53:42You can sing Turn the Beat Around and that's the last I wanna hear of this.
00:53:46That song is tired. We're not gonna win with it.
00:53:49If we pull samples from different genres
00:53:51and layer them together, we could make some...
00:53:52Okay, let me explain something to you because you still don't seem to get it.
00:53:55Our goal is to get back to the finals and these songs will get us there.
00:53:59So, excuse me if I don't take advice from some alt-girl with her mad lib beats,
00:54:04because she's never even been in competition.
00:54:05Have I made myself clear?
00:54:07Crystal. I won't solo.
00:54:10Fine.
00:54:11Fat Amy? Yes, sir?
00:54:13You'll solo.
00:54:16Yes! Yes.
00:54:41Welcome, ladies and gentlemen.
00:54:42The 2012 southeastern regional competition has officially begun.
00:54:46Yes, I'm Gail Abernathy McCadd,
00:54:48and to my right is fellow a cappella alum John Smith
00:54:51and we are live from Carolina University.
00:54:54It's a new season for a cappella.
00:54:56The regionals begin the long road to Lincoln Center
00:54:59where all of these youngsters hope to one day win a trophy
00:55:02by making music with their mouths.
00:55:16A cappella out of sock puppets? Genius.
00:55:20Yeah, look at the black one with the white sock.
00:55:22It's making a statement.
00:55:23There's no craft there. Watching them will make you worse.
00:55:26At least they're different.
00:55:30And the Sockappellas, once again proving
00:55:33that it doesn't get better for everyone after high school.
00:55:49Do we clap?
00:55:51No, we don't. Never.
00:55:56Hands in.
00:55:59Remember, "" on three.
00:56:01One, two...
00:56:03Wait, you said we'd...
00:56:06I'm sorry.
00:56:07It's okay, it's gonna be okay. Okay.
00:56:09Let's give it up for the Barden Bellas!
00:56:14Wow.
00:56:16This does not look like the fresh-faced nubile Bellas that we have come to know.
00:56:22Is it me or are those skirts just not working anymore?
00:56:26You're walking the line, John.
00:56:28It's a nice surprise to see the Bellas mixing it up.
00:56:31It's refreshing, yet displeasing to the eye.
00:56:41One, two, three, four.
00:56:54The Barden Bellas bringing back
00:56:56the same song they sang at last year's finals.
00:56:59And all eyes will be on senior Aubrey Posen.
00:57:02She could toss some cookies at any moment.
00:57:27And she makes it through, folks. No cookie toss.
00:57:55John, a change of pace could not come soon enough here for the Barden Bellas.
00:57:59This is not a great way to start their season.
00:58:02Yeah, this number is like an elephant dart to the public's face.
00:58:16Yeah!
00:58:58Yes.
00:59:07Yeah, Fat Amy.
00:59:09Boo!
00:59:10The Barden Bellas went deep into the archive for that song, John.
00:59:13I remember singing it with my own a cappella group.
00:59:16And what group was that, Gail?
00:59:17The Minstrel Cycles, John.
00:59:19Well, that's an unfortunate name.
00:59:21Thank you. Really incredible.
00:59:24The Barden Bellas. Thank you.
00:59:31That was great.
00:59:32Amazing.
00:59:33You know, there must be something in the water over there at Barden University,
00:59:36'cause this next group is also from Barden.
00:59:38Ladies and gentlemen, the Barden University Treblemakers.
00:59:43Here we go, the Barden Treblemakers. They're on the trail for Lincoln Center, huh?
00:59:47Absolutely, they always are, Gail.
00:59:49My favorite, and everyone's favorite.
00:59:52Now it says here in my notes that their front man Bumper Allen
00:59:55has recently released his own line of sports sandals.
01:00:01Shh!
01:00:28Boy, the bad boys of a cappella have just gotten badder.
01:00:31Whoo! That's right, John.
01:00:32I'm gonna have to excuse myself to freshen up the downtown.
01:00:35Can I help?
01:01:03Ladies and gentlemen, the moment we've all been waiting for.
01:01:06The results of tonight's regional competition.
01:01:09In third place, the Sockappellas!
01:01:16Yeah, lucky you. In second place,
01:01:18and advancing to this year's semi-finals, the Barden Bellas.
01:01:22Yeah.
01:01:24Yes!
01:01:25Awesome.
01:01:27Nice. Nice.
01:01:29Hey,
01:01:30And the winner of tonight's regional competition,
01:01:33defending their crown, ladies and gentlemen,
01:01:35the Barden University Treblemakers!
01:01:38Way to go, Trebles.
01:01:42Yes! Yes!
01:01:47That's right!
01:02:26I'm willing to sign breasts. Yes! I'm willing to sign...
01:02:29Look who it is. Old dudes.
01:02:33Get a life.
01:02:34Sonic boom.
01:02:36Just 'cause we graduated a few years ago,
01:02:38doesn't mean we can't still get off performing our oral magic, all right?
01:02:41Oral magic?
01:02:42Whoa, whoa, whoa, buddy, buddy.
01:02:44Are you looking for what I think you're looking for?
01:02:46Yeah, a fight? You looking for a fight?
01:02:47Please, please. Please say you're looking for a fight.
01:02:49Please, please say you're looking for a fight.
01:02:52Yes! I will fight.
01:02:54I would fight him,
01:02:56but I tore a quad within the midst of the dance...
01:03:00Hey, Gandhi. Hey, you, are we doing this or what?
01:03:03Hit me. What?
01:03:04Let's get it on!
01:03:07Mmm-mmm.
01:03:08I've wrestled crocodiles and dingoes simultaneously.
01:03:11Come here! Why do you want me to hit you?
01:03:12I don't wanna do that.
01:03:13I need to feel something. Hit me as hard as you can.
01:03:16Hit me hard. Take this. Take this. I want you to hit me with it.
01:03:19I'm just gonna... I'm just gonna check on them.
01:03:21The kraken has been unleashed. Feel the Fat Amy force!
01:03:27Hey.
01:03:28My God. My gosh.
01:03:32That's fantastic!
01:03:34Amy, don't. Amy! Feel the fat power.
01:03:35Fat Amy! Kick me in the balls!
01:03:39Amy!
01:03:41Give me the sharp weapon, I wanna put it up his butt!
01:03:43Ooh! Cherry on top.
01:03:51Which way are you running?
01:03:52This way. This way. All right.
01:03:54Beautiful.
01:03:56Amy!
01:03:57Vertical running.
01:03:59I'm vertical running.
01:04:02Hey, Hilary Swank from Million Dollar Baby.
01:04:04Hey, you know you just have to say, "Hey, Million Dollar Baby."
01:04:07You don't have to reference the specific actress.
01:04:10Damn. Prison changed you.
01:04:13Thanks for bailing me out.
01:04:14Well, I didn't.
01:04:16You called my dad?
01:04:17I know, I know, but they were putting you in handcuffs, Bec.
01:04:19It looked pretty serious.
01:04:21That doesn't mean you call my dad.
01:04:22Who else was I gonna call? Okay, why are you yelling at me?
01:04:24I'm the only one here.
01:04:25I didn't ask you to be.
01:04:28I was just trying to help you.
01:04:29I don't need your help, you're not my boyfriend.
01:04:33Got it.
01:04:34Dad, it's not a big deal. Yeah, it's a big deal.
01:04:36I get a call in the middle of the night
01:04:37saying my daughter's been arrested for destruction of property.
01:04:40It was a misunderstanding and I was protecting my friends.
01:04:43I was putting myself out there. Making memories.
01:04:46If you think I'm paying for you to go to LA after a stunt like this,
01:04:49I'm not. Get in the car.
01:04:51You're not even gonna hear what I have to say about this?
01:04:53No, not tonight. Just get in.
01:05:07Hey!
01:05:10What up, Shawshank?
01:05:11Did you get yourself a bitch?
01:05:12Did they spray you with a hose?
01:05:14I did a turn at County.
01:05:18You guys waited up for me?
01:05:19Of course we waited up for you.
01:05:21They've been here for hours. It's a real inconvenience, Beca.
01:05:26Beca, I'm glad you're here.
01:05:29I'm calling an emergency Bella meeting.
01:05:31No.
01:05:32First up... Yes.
01:05:34Our score sheet revealed that the Sockappellas almost beat us.
01:05:37And Fat Amy, you need to do it exactly how we rehearsed it, okay?
01:05:41No surprises.
01:05:42We should be taking risks. It's not enough to be good,
01:05:44we need to put ourselves out there, be different.
01:05:46Beca's right. The Trebles never sing the same song twice.
01:05:49The audience love the Trebles, they tolerate us.
01:05:51We could change the face of a cappella if we...
01:05:54My God, that sounded so queerballs. What's happening to me?
01:05:58Let me show you this arrangement I've been working on.
01:06:01I didn't know you were into this stuff.
01:06:02Yeah.
01:06:05Okay, I have the pitch pipe, and I say that we focus on the set list as planned.
01:06:10From now on, there will be no more wasting time with work
01:06:12or school or boyfriends or partners.
01:06:16Sorry, Cynthia Rose.
01:06:19But Aubrey, this stuff is pretty cool. I mean...
01:06:21Okay. Rehearsal tomorrow, 8:00 a.m. sharp.
01:06:36Hey!
01:06:39This is my track! You're playing my song right now!
01:06:42That is awesome! You like it?
01:06:45You put it on the radio! That is amazing!
01:06:48It's a sick beat.
01:06:51Yeah, I always thought her beats were pretty sick.
01:06:53Hey, Becky, listen, spring break, I want you to take the night shift.
01:06:56Play your music.
01:06:58The DJ at the Garage does a brilliant version of this, but yours? It's better.
01:07:02Yeah, it is.
01:07:04I'm gonna listen to her tonight. I think you should... You should come with.
01:07:07I have a thing.
01:07:09Flight attendant training?
01:07:11It's Barden Bellas. I have the semi-finals tonight.
01:07:15Really? I did not have you pegged as an a cappella girl.
01:07:19That's 'cause you don't know Becky like I do.
01:07:21See you tonight.
01:07:40Okay, don't you flat-butts worry, I got this.
01:07:42I'm just gonna pump and dump.
01:07:45I don't care what you say.
01:07:46Sisqó live, best performance ever, I've ever seen.
01:07:49"Thong Song" isn't his only hit. Yeah.
01:07:55All right? That's serious.
01:07:56Yo, Bump, is that Fat Amy?
01:07:58Donald, slow down! Slow down!
01:08:00Yeah! All right!
01:08:02Hey, Amy? Sabotage!
01:08:10I've been shot.
01:08:14I've just been shot! Help me.
01:08:17Fat Amy!
01:08:19They shot Amy!
01:08:21I've got you. I've got you.
01:08:24No, no, no. I'm talking, I'm talking... I'm sitting up.
01:08:28- All right. Cool. - There's no need for that.
01:08:30No mouth to mouth.
01:08:32Shit. Bumper threw a big-ass burrito at me.
01:08:37I'm gonna kill him, I swear. I'm gonna finish him like a cheesecake.
01:09:05You've got yourself a little something there.
01:09:07Just leave it. It fuels my hate fire.
01:09:50My God.
01:10:22It's a... it's...
01:10:27What the hell?
01:10:29Um... it's pretty cool, actually. L think we're just running out of gas.
01:10:34No, that can't be. You just filled the tank.
01:10:36Yeah, I did.
01:10:39And, yet, maybe I didn't, because I got hit by flying Mexican food.
01:10:49And we're out.
01:10:51A-ca-scuse me?
01:10:53A-ca-believe it.
01:10:55Man, what are we gonna do?
01:10:57Maybe we could call...
01:10:58No, don't even say it, Chloe. How dare you?
01:11:01No, actually that is a really good idea. I've got Bumper's number.
01:11:04Why do you have Bumper's number?
01:11:17So, Bellas,
01:11:20what boring, estrogen-filled set have you prepared for us this evening?
01:11:24Excuse me?
01:11:26But you guys are gonna get pitch-slapped so hard
01:11:29your man boobs are gonna concave.
01:11:34Nine miles, guys.
01:11:46That's pretty good.
01:11:49I set fires to feel joy.
01:11:52That's adorable.
01:12:15Five minutes, Bellas.
01:12:16Where did he come from? Shh!
01:12:18It's over. There's no way we can beat the Footnotes and the Trebles.
01:12:52Whoo! That little peanut can sing.
01:12:54He really can. It sounds to me, though, Gail, like his boys haven't dropped yet,
01:12:57if you know what I mean.
01:12:58If you mean his testicles, then I do, John. I do. I really do.
01:13:02A-ca-huddle, now.
01:13:04The top two teams go to the finals, so we just have to beat one of them.
01:13:07And if we do it exactly how we rehearsed it, we will get there, okay? Exactly.
01:13:15Hands in.
01:13:18On three or after three?
01:13:19Screw it. Let's just do it.
01:13:21Put your hands together for the Barden Bellas!
01:13:25Okay, the Bellas are coming out.
01:13:28Another step in this competition and...
01:13:32One, two, three, four...
01:13:38Here we go again.
01:13:39Looks like they're sticking with what they know.
01:14:29A little tension on the stage tonight.
01:14:31Claws are out.
01:14:32This is just friendly collegiate fun.
01:14:36It's a tough competition, but we're all here to have a good time.
01:14:39That's right, John. But a mistake can haunt you for the rest of your life
01:14:42and affect your children.
01:14:50What the hell, Beca? Were you trying to screw us up?
01:14:53Are you serious?
01:14:54Newsflash. This isn't the Beca show.
01:14:56Okay, I'm sorry that I messed you up,
01:14:59but in case you hadn't noticed, everybody pretty much dozed off during our set.
01:15:02It's not your job to decide what we do and when we do it.
01:15:05Why don't you ask the rest of the group how they felt about your little improvisation?
01:15:12Amy?
01:15:14It was cool. But it did take us a little bit by surprise.
01:15:19Yeah, a lot by surprise.
01:15:21A little.
01:15:23I told you she wasn't a Bella. Aubrey, don't.
01:15:26No, that's okay. You don't have to pretend
01:15:28you're allowed to have a say in the group, right?
01:15:30Your attitude sucks. You're a grade-A pain in my ass,
01:15:33and I know you're hooking up with Jesse.
01:15:34Whoa. Whoa. Aubrey, calm down. We're not hooking up, I swear.
01:15:36Jesus Christ! That's perfect. Of course you're here right now.
01:15:40I don't need your help, okay? Can you back off?
01:15:44Trebles. Time to bring the pain.
01:15:48If this is what I get for trying...
01:15:53Beca? Beca, wait.
01:16:00Aubrey, it actually went really well.
01:16:01Chloe, stop!
01:16:02Excuse me. My God. Okay.
01:16:05Beca? Beca, wait.
01:16:22And the Treblemakers seal the deal tonight.
01:16:25Unfortunately, Barden's other group, the Bellas, do not advance,
01:16:28and senior Aubrey Posen loses her chance to redeem herself from last year's Pukegate.
01:16:41Happy spring break.
01:16:44Thanks.
01:18:11In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions.
01:18:14But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain.
01:18:19And an athlete.
01:18:20And a basket case.
01:18:22A princess.
01:18:23And a criminal.
01:18:25Does that answer your question?
01:18:28Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.
01:18:44My God.
01:18:47Okay.
01:18:59We are from the Collegiate A Cappella Association.
01:19:02It has come to our attention that you are not in college.
01:19:06Ls this your mother?
01:19:19This is Aubrey Posen.
01:19:24Yes, thank you, sir.
01:19:28I look forward to seeing you again at Lincoln Center.
01:19:33Yes!
01:19:48Aubrey?
01:20:02I'm all in, bitches.
01:20:17Okay. The a-ca-gods have looked down on us and they have given us a second chance.
01:20:21Shalom!
01:20:22I texted Beca.
01:20:24You did what?
01:20:25She makes us better.
01:20:26That's not an opinion for you to have, Chloe.
01:20:28Why? Because it's not yours?
01:20:30You're not always right, you know.
01:20:31We will win without her.
01:20:44- Jesse, I know you're in there. - I can smell popcorn.
01:20:48Jesse, come on. Open up.
01:20:59Hey. I tried to call you. L left you a bunch of messages.
01:21:03Yeah, I got them.
01:21:05I'm sorry that we fought.
01:21:06I was mad and I overreacted and I'm just...
01:21:09Aubrey makes me crazy.
01:21:10Seriously?
01:21:13You think I'm mad because you yelled at me?
01:21:16No, I know...
01:21:17No, you don't. You think you know, but you don't.
01:21:21You push away anyone who could possibly care about you. Why is that?
01:21:27I don't know.
01:21:29Well, you better figure it out because I'm done with...
01:21:34Whatever this is.
01:21:35Jesse... I'm done.
01:21:54Women.
01:21:55Yeah.
01:21:59Okay, stop.
01:22:00What is happening to us?
01:22:02Chloe, you sound like you smoke three packs a day.
01:22:05Stacie, you are so behind on choreography.
01:22:08And Jessica and Ashley, it is like you haven't been here all year long.
01:22:11Aubrey, really?
01:22:12We've literally been here the whole time.
01:22:14Aubrey, please, just give us a break.
01:22:17It's kind of not the same without everyone here.
01:22:19We need Beca.
01:22:21Maybe if Aubrey loosened the reins a little bit.
01:22:23Okay, shut it, Chloe!
01:22:24Whoa!
01:22:25I'm sorry. That was rude.
01:22:28Chloe, could you please get your head out of your ass? It's not a hat.
01:22:35A-ca-awkward.
01:22:37Again.
01:22:42No one was more surprised than me, but I really liked those girls.
01:22:47And you thought quitting was the answer?
01:22:50Seriously? You can say that to me?
01:22:52Come on, Bec, that's so unfair.
01:22:55Look, your mom and I, we didn't work.
01:22:58But I tried so hard to make things right between us.
01:23:01But you, you just shut me out.
01:23:03Yeah, well, I shut everybody out. Don't take it personally.
01:23:07It's just easier.
01:23:08It's also really lonely.
01:23:17What do I do?
01:23:19Well, that's up to you.
01:23:24Trebles, listen up!
01:23:26If this is about the Bellas getting into the finals, we already know.
01:23:29I don't give a crap about those dumb bitches.
01:23:31Because I'm being brought up to the musical big leagues.
01:23:34What are you talking about?
01:23:35John Mayer just asked me, personally, through an assistant,
01:23:39to sing backup on his new CD.
01:23:42I leave for Los Angeles in a few hours, so I gotta get going.
01:23:46But Bumper, what about the lCCAs? They're this weekend.
01:23:49Sorry, buddies, but I won that shit like 100 times, so I'm out of here.
01:23:54Got a collarless leather jacket to buy. Maybe some aviators.
01:23:57I might get an earring, I don't know.
01:23:59It's Los Angeles. This is exciting stuff. My life rules!
01:24:03Bumper's a jerk. All right, I said it. Yeah.
01:24:06Well, he's a jerk that we need to replace. Yeah.
01:24:08Pronto dente.
01:24:09You know he writes his own fan mail.
01:24:17Spot opened up, and it's yours if you want it.
01:24:20Just one condition. Promise me you won't get all weird.
01:24:23We're just a group of guys singing a bunch of covers of songs, okay?
01:24:27If you get weird, they will definitely not let you stay.
01:24:30Deal. Although I don't know what you mean by weird.
01:24:35Got it.
01:24:36I have been there for you for so many years, and all you do is treat me like...
01:24:39All right, no, okay, just shut up! Everyone!
01:24:42Come on, I joined this group so I could hang out with a bunch of really cool chicks.
01:24:46And also 'cause I was really sick of all my boyfriends
01:24:48and I need to get away from that.
01:24:50But this is some serious horseshit.
01:24:54What's that smell? Stinks everywhere.
01:24:57I don't wanna be like the old Bellas.
01:25:00Yeah, I wanna be how we are now.
01:25:04Me, too.
01:25:05We should have listened to Beca.
01:25:07So it's my fault?
01:25:08That's not what I'm saying.
01:25:09No, no, no, that's what you're all thinking, isn't it?
01:25:12That I'm the jerk. I am the girl obsessed with winning.
01:25:16Aubrey, you're too controlling and it's gonna ruin all of us.
01:25:19You know what, I can lose control if I want to.
01:25:22I can let go. This time I'm not gonna choke it down.
01:25:37Come on, bring it! You can do better than that!
01:25:40That's all you got?
01:25:41Enough! Enough!
01:25:47We could have been champions!
01:25:52Give me the pitch pipe, you bitch!
01:25:54Give it to me!
01:25:56Give it to me! Give it to me!
01:25:59Never!
01:26:00I'll protect you. I'll protect you.
01:26:02Hands off the goodies!
01:26:18Move, you bitches!
01:26:27Guys!
01:26:29Guys, stop! What is going on?
01:26:39Nothing. Nothing. This is a Bellas rehearsal.
01:26:43I know. I just
01:26:47wanted to say that I'm sorry.
01:26:51What I did was a really dick move
01:26:53and I shouldn't have changed the set without asking you guys.
01:26:56And I definitely shouldn't have left.
01:27:00I let you guys down and I'm really sorry.
01:27:05And...
01:27:08Aubrey, if you would have me, I want back in.
01:27:35Aubrey.
01:27:46Wait.
01:27:47Thank you. That would have been embarrassing.
01:27:51Beca, I know that I've been hard on you, okay?
01:27:55I know that I have been hard on everyone here.
01:28:00But I am my father's daughter.
01:28:05And he always said, "if at first you don't succeed",
01:28:12"pack your bags."
01:28:17Jesus. That's really crazy.
01:28:20I get it. Mine gets on me, too.
01:28:24Not like that, but...
01:28:27I guess we don't really know that much about each other.
01:28:30About most of you, really.
01:28:33Well, I'll confess something that none of you know about me.
01:28:38I have a lot of sex.
01:28:40Yeah, we know, Stacie.
01:28:42Only 'cause I just told you.
01:28:44This is a good idea.
01:28:45That was a pretty bad example, but this is a good idea.
01:28:48Why don't we all go around the room,
01:28:53and we can all say something about ourselves that nobody else knows.
01:28:58Okay, I got something.
01:29:00This is hard for me to admit to you guys.
01:29:03I think we all know where this is going. Let's be honest.
01:29:09Well, for the last two years, I've had a serious
01:29:14gambling problem.
01:29:16What? What?
01:29:17It started when I broke up with my girlfriend.
01:29:19Whoomp! There it is.
01:29:25I still love you.
01:29:31Anyone else?
01:29:36I ate my twin in the womb.
01:29:40What?
01:29:44Okay.
01:29:47Fat Amy?
01:29:49I'm an open book.
01:29:51I mean, for God's sake, you guys all call me Fat Amy.
01:29:54See, I guess I'm just not really living if I'm not being 100% honest.
01:30:03And my real name is Fat Patricia.
01:30:06What?
01:30:09Okay. I've never been one of those girls
01:30:14who had a lot of friends who were girls. And I do now.
01:30:19And that's pretty cool.
01:30:24So, that's me. Someone else please go.
01:30:29Okay.
01:30:32Over spring break, I made the courageous decision to remove my nodes.
01:30:40I know. The doctor said that I can't sing above a G-sharp,
01:30:45maybe ever.
01:30:47I thought the season was over.
01:30:54It's okay. It's okay.
01:30:59Beca, what do we do?
01:31:12I'm sorry.
01:31:14Maybe not here.
01:31:16All right. Let's remix this business.
01:31:20Aubrey, would you pick a song for us, please?
01:31:25Bruno Mars, Just The Way You Are.
01:31:29Okay. Chloe, are you okay to take the lead?
01:31:32Yeah.
01:33:18Hands in.
01:33:23One, two...
01:33:27What was that?
01:33:28I don't know, I've never made that sound before.
01:33:30Yo, but with your messed up vocal cords, you could hit the bass notes.
01:33:33Do you know what that means?
01:33:35Yes, Lilly?
01:33:36I think I have something that can help us out.
01:33:39Excuse me, bitch, you don't need to shout.
01:33:42Okay, don't get mouthy.
01:33:59Welcome to the finals
01:34:01of the 2012 international Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
01:34:05Lincoln Center is proud to welcome back all of these young hopefuls tonight
01:34:09who are hoping to win a trophy by making music with their mouths.
01:34:20This is gonna be a big night, and I tell you, Gail,
01:34:23if you can just shut your eyes. I'm doing it.
01:34:26Shut your eyes and get rid of all the a-ca-politics,
01:34:29then you can remember that being at Lincoln Center, in the Big Apple,
01:34:33and singing on this storied stage is the dream of every a cappella singer.
01:34:38You said it, John.
01:34:56The University of Virginia Hullabahoos, ladies and gentlemen.
01:35:01There they are.
01:35:02One, two, three, swag!
01:35:04Welcome back to the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
01:35:09This next group, they need no introduction, but I'll do it anyway!
01:35:14Hey.
01:35:17Good luck.
01:35:19Thanks. You, too.
01:35:21The Barden University Treblemakers!
01:38:08The Trebles closing it strong like always.
01:38:11Absolutely tight. It's gonna be very hard to beat that tonight.
01:38:15Every other group has their work cut out for them, John.
01:38:17I'm glad it's not us anymore, Gail. Those days are over, thank goodness.
01:38:22Especially since they wouldn't have us back.
01:38:25All right. How about that?
01:38:28The Barden University Treblemakers.
01:38:30I love you, awesome nerds.
01:38:31Yeah, you guys are the best.
01:38:34Even though some of you are pretty thin, I think that you all have fat hearts,
01:38:39and that's what matters.
01:38:42Okay, let's just smash this. Okay?
01:38:44Ladies and gentlemen, the Barden Bellas!
01:38:51My goodness gracious. Will you look at this?
01:38:54Gone are those Bella uniforms and this is a whole new look for them,
01:38:58and it is hot, hot, hot.
01:39:00John, these girls could turn me.
01:39:07We love you, Bellas!
01:39:17One, two, three, four.
01:43:03Way to go, Beca!
01:43:22What a show!
01:43:23I think we have just seen some a cappella history being made, John.
01:43:27And from an all-female group, Gail. I could never have called this one.
01:43:31Never. Well, you are a misogynist at heart,
01:43:34so there's no way you would have bet on these girls to win.
01:43:36Absolutely.
01:43:41Weren't they incredible? Wow!
01:43:45Ladies and gentlemen, let's give it up again for the Barden Bellas!
01:43:52Told you. Endings are the best part.
01:43:54You're such a weirdo.
01:44:09Listen up, a-ca-ballers.
01:44:11I have been rejected by the Army, shoved into a Dora the Explorer backpack,
01:44:16and pushed into the girls' locker room wearing nothing but suspenders.
01:44:19But no matter. I am in the world that I love.
01:44:23And with the assistance of my boy, Justin...
01:44:25My liege.
01:44:26I launch this year's auditions.
01:44:29Belly roll.
01:44:31The most recent ICCA national champion winners get to pick the audition song.
01:44:43All right, nerds. Let's go with...
01:46:19Because I have nodes.
01:46:21Chloe, don't worry, it's just God punishing you 'cause you're a ginger.
