We gotta make that move towards redemption, we gotta go to church - Elwood Blues
When I woke up this morning, I heard a disturbing sound - Prison Guard #2
Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ! I have seen the light! - 'Joliet' Jake Blues
And God bless the United States of America! - Elwood Blues

Jake's backflips up and down the aisle were performed by a stuntman 'Jonathan Yarbrough'. He is more famously known as 'Jonathan Pendragon', of the magic duo The Pendragons
Because James Brown had trouble lip-syncing, all of his vocals were recorded live on the set. The band and the choir were all pre-recorded in the studio.
Many of the other scenes with dancing used amateurs, this scene used professional dancers to compensate.
