BREAKING OUT

(Movie Version)


 
    When compared to the soundtrack version, this song is somewhat different in the film, at least on how it ends.  The soundtrack and the film version are both "live" versions, per say, but the ending on the soundtrack is professionally made, with only the band singing, whereas the end of the film "live" version features audience participation in the studio audience (they shout "breaking out" which does not appear on the soundtrack).
    The introduction of the band is done by Ralph who messes up.  He starts to say one thing, but then notices the cue card reads an entirely different introduction.
    This song, in the very original script, was to be sung by Rocky Horror.
    In the film, you will notice twice a woman, dressed for the 1960's, overly excited.  This woman is Oscar and Brenda Drill's mother, as noted in "The Brad and Janet Show," the original script for Shock Treatment.  The script also clarified that Glish Davidson is Brenda's boyfriend.
 


 
Ralph:  Ladies and Gentlemen, to help get you in the mood for Faith Factory, DTV proudly presents, Denton's own--"With a suburban garage sound, let's here it for Oscar Drill and the Bits!"
Betty:  Oh, Oliver.  This is one time charity didn't begin at home.

Oscar: One, Two, Three, Four!
        I know how it feels to be cooling my heels
        I've been down on them long enough
Mrs. Drill: Uh huh huh!
        But if I take to them now then maybe somehow
        You'll see through the bluff of my playing it tough
        I've been a lifetime on deposit and that's a long time in the closet
        And if you say to me
Band: How was it?
Oscar: It was hard taking that heart breaking God forsaken route but I'm
Band: Bada ba ba bada
Oscar: Breaking out (ooh)
        You may say that you choose to be in my shoes
        Well look what it did for me
        I got buried alive, I don't thrive on that jive
        Look and you'll see that the spikes don't fit me
        I've been a lifetime on deposit and that's a long time in the closet
        And if you say to me
Band: How was it?
Oscar: It was hard taking that heart breaking God forsaken route but I'm
Band: Bada ba ba bada
Oscar: Breaking out
Brad: Where are we going?
Betty: To A family reunion.
Band: Bada ba ba bada
Oscar: Breaking out
Audience: Breaking out
Oscar: Breaking out
Band: Breaking out (uh!)
