No, Josie, you're irreplaceable. Everyone else is...disposable.
Josie: Mom, Valerie quit the Pussycats.
Mayor McCoy: Replace her!
Josie: Val writes our songs. She's irreplaceable.
Mayor McCoy: No, Josie, you're irreplaceable. Everyone else is...disposable. You know...maybe it's not such a bad thing to try a new voice? A different sound? You know how your father feels about pop music.
Josie: But it's not pop music this time.
Mayor McCoy: Well, he's catching a Red Eye and missing two concert dates to see you in this Variety Show. I would hate for you to let him down.
Josie: I understand, and I won't.
Mayor McCoy: Good. Because if you do, he will somehow blame me.
