I am a member of the press, I can't get involved in something like this!
Loreli Daly: Oh, please! Like you have morals!
As Loreli begins crying after getting her photo taken, Lyle rushes to comfort her and puts his hand on her shoulder. It then cuts to a long shot with Lyle a foot away, and he again puts his hand on her shoulder.
Early screenings of the film included a lot of music that was subsequently changed. Most notable is the scene in Amarillo, Texas where the beauty queens rehearse a routine that Loreli designed for them when they were children -- in the final cut of the film, an original instrumental is heard; in the earlier cuts, "Making Our Dreams Come True," the theme song for Laverne & Shirley (1976) scored the scene.
