Full Plot

The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year's finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition. napierslogs Plot not found

Fat Amy: Well... sometimes I have the feeling I can do crystal meth, but then I think, mmm... better not. Aubrey: We will practice, and I trust you will add your own cardio. Fat Amy: Yeah, no, don't put me down for cardio. Fat Amy: You guys are gonna get pitch-slapped so hard, your man boobs are gonna concave. Lilly: I ate my twin in the womb. Lilly: [Speaking louder than she normally does] I think I have something that could help us. Fat Amy: Excuse me bitch, you don't need to shout. Lilly: Do you want to see a dead body? Gail: Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy. John: Women are about as good at a cappella as they are at being doctors. Benji: The Treblemakers. The rock stars of a cappella, the messiahs of Barden. Well, you know, not including athletes, frat guys, or actual cool people. Jesse: Organized nerd singing? This is great! John: The bad boys of a cappella have just gotten badder! Gail: Whoo! That's right, John, I'm gonna have to excuse myself to freshen up the downtown. John: Can I help? Fat Amy: Even though some of you are pretty thin, you all have fat hearts, and that's what matters. Lilly: I set fires to feel joy. Donald: That's adorable. Donald: Who do you think would be easier to sleep with, Captain America or a great white shark? Bumper: A great white shark. Bumper: Your weirdness is actually affecting my vocal cords, so I'm gonna need you to scoot! Skedaddle! Stacie: I have a confession. I have a lot of sex. Fat Amy: Yeah. we know.

Cynthia Rose: It all started when I broke up with my girlfriend. Fat Amy: Whoop, there it is! Bumper: [to Amy] You are probably the grossest human being I have ever met. Fat Amy: You're no panty dropper yourself. Fat Amy: I can sing, but I'm also good at modern dance, olden dance, and mermaid dancing which is a little different. You usually start on the ground. Aubrey: Ooh. Fat Amy: It's a lot of floor work. Aubrey: I see that. Fat Amy: What are you turd burgers talking about? Dressing for comfort? Fat Amy: [cough] Slut. Jesse: You're one of the a cappella girls. I'm one of those a cappella boys, and we're gonna have aca-children. It's inevitable. Beca: You're really drunk right now. I don't think you're gonna remember any of this. Jesse: No, I'm not drunk at all. You're just blurry. Fat Amy: I'm just gonna pump and dump. Fat Amy: That's actually a good idea. I have Bumper's number. Aubrey: Why do you have Bumper's number? Fat Amy: Ummmm... uhhhhhh... ummmmmm... Chloe: This ginger needs her jiggle juice! Bumper: You girls are awesome... ly horrible. I hate you. Kill yourselves. Girl power! Sisters before misters! Fat Amy: Fine. I'll give you both my number. Fat Amy: Crushed it. Beca: You have a little something behind your ear. Fat Amy: Leave it. It fuels my hate fire. Aubrey: The Trebles don't respect us, and if we let them penetrate us, we are giving them our power. Fat Amy: Not a good enough reason to use the word 'penetrate.' Fat Amy: The kraken has been unleashed! Feel the Fat Amy force! Fat Amy: A cappella with sock puppets? Genius! Fat Amy: I'm vertical running! Jewish Student: Shalom. Fat Amy: That's not a real word but keep trying. You. Will. Get. There. Jesse: Told you. Endings are the best part. Beca: You're such a weirdo. [Grabs and kisses him] Beca: You must really sweep your girlfriend off her feet. Jesse: Oh, I don't have a girlfriend. Beca: What? You have juice pouches and Rocky. Beca: Hey. You must be Kimmy Jin. I'm Beca. Kimmy Jin: [Silence] Beca: No English? Kimmy Jin: [Silence] Beca: Yes English? Kimmy Jin: [Silence] Beca: Just tell me where you're at with English... Aubrey: This time I'm not gonna choke it down! Stacie: Been there before... Jesse: Hey Hilary Swank from Million Dollar Baby. Beca: Hey, you could just say 'Hey Million Dollar Baby" you don't have to reference the specific actress. Jesse: Damn. Prison changed you. Gail: Is it me, or did we just take a left turn into snooze-ville? John: Yeah, and we parked in a lot where they do not validate. Barden Greeter: Here's your campus map, and your official BU rape whistle! Don't blow it unless it's actually happening! Benji: Look, just so you know, I'm not a total nerd. I also happen to be super-into close-up magic. [He produces a hamster] Jesse: Dude, that's awesome! How long was that little guy in there? Benji: Several days. Sigma Beta Frat Guys: [Chanting] Taking names, taking numbers, join our righteous frat! If you ain't pledging Sigma Beta, you ain't worth no crap! Benji: That's a double negative! Jesse: That's a lot of negatives. Chloe: Hi! Any interest in joining our a cappella group? Beca: Oh, right, this is like, a thing now. Chloe: Oh, totes! We sing covers of songs, but we do it without any instruments. It's all from our mouths! Beca: Yikes. Chloe: So, are you interested? Beca: Sorry, it's just... it's pretty lame. Aubrey: A-ca-scuse me? Synchronized lady dancing to a Mariah Carey chart-topper is not lame! Chloe: We sing all over the world, and we compete in national championships! Beca: On purpose? Aubrey: We played the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, you bitch! Jesse: So, what's your deal? Are you one of those girls who's all dark and mysterious, then she takes off her glasses and that amazingly scary ear spike and you realize that, you know, she was beautiful the whole time? Beca: I don't wear glasses. Jesse: Then you're halfway there. [Chloe has burst, stark naked, into Beca's stall while she's showering] Chloe: You have to audition for the Bellas! Beca: I can't concentrate on anything you're saying until you cover your junk. Chloe: Just consider it! One time, we sang back-up for Prince. His butt is so tiny that I can hold it with, like, one hand. Tommy: My tone-deaf sidekick Justin here will be collecting your information. Justin: If I could sing a lick, in any human way possible, I would. But I can't. And I hate myself every day because of it! Tommy: I know. Donald: Whenever you're ready, dude. Cynthia Rose: [Scoffs and takes off her hat, revealing her pink hair] Yeah, hi. My name is Cynthia Rose. Donald: Huh. Not a dude. It's not a dude. Aubrey: We shall begin by drinking the blood of the sisters that came before you. Beca: Dude, no. Chloe: Don't worry, it's Boone's Farm. Bumper: Well, well, well, look who's in Treble! Donald: Ah, classic pun. Bumper: I know. [Part of the Bella oath] Aubrey: And I solemnly promise to never have sexual relations with a Treblemaker, or may my vocal cords be ripped out by wolves. Bumper: Oh yeah, ladies. Gather around. Ready for a show. Donald: Come on, baby bubble, wait in line. Bumper: Yeah. Donald: Yep. Bumper: You want some of this. Donald: I know you do. Bumper: Nice! Donald: Bumper and Donald. Bumper: Mmm-hmm. Donald: Gettin' it... gettin' it. Aubrey: As you can see, Kori is not here. Last night, she was Treble-boned. She has been disinvited from the Bellas. Beca: That oath was serious? Aubrey: Dixie Chicks serious! Aubrey: Hands in, a-ca-bitches! Aubrey: I know you have a toner for Jesse. Beca: A what? Aubrey: A toner. A musical boner. I saw it on Hood Night. It's distracting. Beca: Yeah, that's not a thing, and you're not the boss of me. So... Aubrey: I can see your toner through those jeans! Beca: That's my dick! Aubrey: Chloe, your voice didn't sound Aguilerian at all! [about Chloe's vocal cord nodes] Beca: Isn't that painful? Why would you keep performing? Chloe: Because I love to sing. Stacie: Yeah, it's like when my lady doctor told me not to have sex for six weeks, and I did it anyway. Fat Amy: Well, at least it's not herpes. Or do you have that as well? Jesse: So what do you want to watch first? Beca: Wanna do something else? We could re-live my parents' divorce. Or visit a gynecologist. Justin: The side effects of medical marijuana, ladies and gentlemen. [while watching The Breakfast Club] Beca: Tell me, what does Judd Nelson eat for breakfast? Jesse: Oh, well, like all misunderstood rebels, he feeds on hypocrisy. Beca: Sure. Jesse: And black coffee, to help with his morning dumps. Kimmy Jin: The white girl is back. Fat Amy: [out of breath from learning choreography] I should have taken that cardio tip more seriously. Aubrey: How much have you done? Fat Amy: You just saw it. Aubrey: Fat Amy? Fat Amy: Yes, sir. John: This does not look like the fresh-faced nubile Bellas that we have come to know. Is it me, or are those skirts just not working anymore? Gail: You're walking the line, John. It's a nice surprise to see the Bellas mixing it up. It's refreshing, yet displeasing to the eye. Gail: John, a change of pace could not come soon enough here for the Barden Bellas. This is not a great way to start their season. John: Yeah, this number is like an elephant dart to the public's face. Gail: The Barden Bellas went deep into the archive for that song, John. I remember singing it with my own a cappella group. John: And what group was that, Gail? Gail: The Minstrel Cycles, John. John: Well, that's an unfortunate name. Bumper: I'm willing to sign breasts! Fat Amy: I've wrestled crocodiles and dingoes simultaneously. Fat Amy: Give me the sharp weapon, I wanna put it up his butt! [Beca returns to her room after being released from jail] Fat Amy: What up, Shawshank? Cynthia Rose: Did you get yourself a bitch? Fat Amy: Did they spray you with a hose? Lilly: [quietly] I did a turn at County. Beca: The audience loves the Trebles. They tolerate us. We could change the face of a cappella if we... oh my God, that sounded so queerballs. What's happening to me? [Their bus starts to sputter and slow] Aubrey: What the hell? Fat Amy: It's pretty cool, actually... I think we're just running out of gas. Aubrey: No, that can't be! You just filled the tank! Fat Amy: Yeah, I did! And yet, maybe I didn't, because I got hit by flying Mexican food. [the bus sputters to a stop] Fat Amy: And we're out. Aubrey: A-ca-scuse me? Fat Amy: A-ca-believe it! Gail: Whoo, that little peanut can sing! John: He really can. It sounds to me, though, Gail, like his boys haven't dropped yet, if you know what I mean. Gail: If you mean his testicles, then I do, John. I do. I really do. Aubrey: A-ca-huddle, now! Aubrey: Chloe, could you please get your head out of your ass? It's not a hat! Fat Amy: A-ca-awkward... Gail: I think we have just seen some a cappella history being made, John. John: And from an all-female group, Gail. I could never have called this one. Gail: Never. Well, you are a misogynist at heart, so there's no way you would have bet on these girls to win. John: Absolutely. Tommy: Listen up, a-ca-ballers.

Shooting/Filming Locations

  1. Louisiana, USA


- One of the movie's lines refers to being "pitch slapped." 'Kelley Jakle' (qv) competed on _"The Sing-Off" (2009)_ (qv) with the Backbeats, and one of their opponents was Pitch Slapped.

- A special screening of the film was held on 25 September 2012 at the LSU Student Union Theater because parts of the movie were filmed on LSU's campus. The turnout for the screening was so great that only a little more than half of the students in line got in to see the movie. The producer saw that there were more students wanting to see the film and allowed a second showing immediately following the first.

- The role of Gail was originally written for 'Kristen Wiig' (qv) but she declined due to scheduling conflicts. 'Elizabeth Banks (II)' (qv), one of the film's producers, eventually took the role.

- ICCAs stands for International Competition of Collegiate Acapella.

- The other two Barden acapella groups are the BU Harmonics and the High Notes.

- Beca has an 'Allen Ginsberg' poster in her dorm room.

- The gas station they stop at is Kean's gas station.

- 'Brittany Snow' (qv) said that 'Rebel Wilson' (qv) improvised most of her lines and would go on 20 minute tangents that would
