Shake It Up! s02e12 Episode Script

Apply It Up

Hi, I'm looking for CeCe Jones.
I want to talk to her about school.
School? Uh, you see that really tall girl over there? That is CeCe Jones.
Hi, Mark Taussig, it's nice to meet me, the pleasure is yours.
If you say so.
I do.
Because it's true.
I'm the Dean of Admissions of the Chicago Fine Arts Academy.
I want to talk to you about auditioning for CFA.
Hi, I'm CeCe Jones.
Sorry about saying I wasn't.
You know, stranger danger.
Well, I don't know who the stranger is, but I know who the danger is.
Everybody, everybody, get out on the floor It can get a little crazy when the kick hits the 4 Make a scene, make a scene, nobody can ignore Don't knock it We can't take it no more Bring the lights up, bust the doors down Dust yourself off Shake it up, shake it up DJ set it off, take it up a notch All together now, shake it up, shake it up Sh-sh-sh-shake it up You got to change it up And when you've had enough Sh-sh-sh-shake it up Bring the lights up, bust the doors down All together now, shake it up, shake it up Shake it up How could you have for the two of usons to the Chicago Fine Arts Academy and not tell me? Pretty easily, actually.
It was all online.
A few buttons.
So, what are we gonna wear for the audition? I'm not wearing anything.
Well, that'll get you noticed.
It'll get you in.
I'm not wearing anything, because I'm not going.
Okay, look, it was very sweet of you to commit online fraud for me But as much as I love dancing, I'm not going to a school my standard of academia.
Wow.
What an ego on you.
We weren't accepted prestigious school anyone in their right mind would be thrilled to go to.
We were asked to audition.
I thought it would be a great experience for us, but obviously you're too busy with your macadamia.
My blue, one-sleeve leotard.
What are you talking about? "My outfit for the audition," she said, trying to gloss over the fact that her best friend has a point.
Sweet.
Wait, I'm that best friend, right? I'll get it, Mom! Hello, my bespectacled friend, who is unsuccessfully trying to bring back the bow tie.
Hi, Flynn.
Hi, Flynn? Hi, Flynn? Where's the insult? Where's the big words I have to look up after you leave? I see that you ascertained I am uncharacteristically aloof today.
And he's back.
So what's up? Well, the good news is I've discovered an unidentified meteor, which means I get naming rights.
That's cool and boring.
Well, the bad news is, the meteor is hurtling towards Earth, and impact will be in four days.
You know what this means, don't you? I sure do.
No point wasting my last few days on this junk.
Come on, let's go find some chicks, go to Vegas and get crazy! Wow, look at all these dancers, I mean, you can smell the anxiety.
Will they get in, won't they get in? You know, I'm glad we're just here for the experience.
Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't hear a word you said because I was too busy Freaking out! Look at that girl, she's holding her leg over her head.
And those guys just doing leaps across the room like super heroes.
Oh, you left out that one guy in the really tighty tight, tight, tight tights.
Whoo! That cannot be healthy.
Everyone, can we gather, please? Gather, gather.
I'm waiting.
Gathering.
Oh, not so close that I can smell the anxiety.
Thank you all for coming.
Thousands applied, but you represent the best Chicago has to offer.
I know, I chose you.
Wow, thousands? I didn't realize that.
This is very flattering.
Graduates from our school appear in movies, on Broadway, and some even go on to have a sandwich named after them at Melvin's Delicatessen.
The Mark Taussig is black forest ham, brie cheese on rye with a tangy thousand island dressing.
Fat-free, tangy thousand island dressing.
Wow, I never thought of myself as possibly one day being a sandwich.
Others find that the dance world isn't for them, but because of our top notch academic program, they find themselves being accepted into Ivy League schools.
Did you hear that? Ivy League, Ivy League, Ivy League If I didn't know any better, I'd say you want this just as much as I do.
Don't just stand there, help me get my leg over my head.
Why do we have to call NASA? I already emailed them to warn them about the meteor.
Dude, I'm pretty sure the end of the world is worth a phone call.
But you know I have telephone-based anxiety issues.
Thanks for holding.
This is Captain DuBois speaking.
How can I help you? Hey, Captain.
My super genius friend has discovered a meteor heading towards Earth with the coordinates of, right ascension 58 degrees and declination of 45 degrees.
Well, isn't that the cutest story.
You just made my day.
How about we send you some astronaut ice cream? Seriously, this is a national emergency! Do you have strawberry? This is unbelievable! I know, I didn't give her my address.
How's she going to know where to send my ice cream? Here's how this is going to work.
Based on your performance of this dance, I'm going to whittle you down to the final four.
No pressure, but for most of you, your dreams die today.
A-five, six, seven, eight! A dream like this Not something you wish for A dream like this Not something you've asked for When it's a gift worth taking a chance for Then this is something you dance for Hey, yeah, yeah! Oh, whoa, whoa! This is something you dance for There's a moment when you look to the side Who will fall Who will survive That's the moment when you find it inside On the line This is your time And it's all I want And it's all I do A dream like this Not something you wish for A dream like this Not something you've asked for When it's a gift worth taking a chance for Then this is something you dance for For the love, for the fame To bring down the rain By the way that you feel When they're calling your name For the days there've been more It's just you on the floor Oh, this is something you dance for Congratulations.
You four are moving on to the interview stage.
Unfortunately, for two of you, it'll be the last stage you're ever on.
Interview? That sounds like a test.
No, no, no, Cece.
It's nothing like a test, okay.
You don't study for it.
Oh, okay.
Well, in that case, it sounds exactly like a test! Ta-da! What do you think? I think it's interesting that when faced with your own mortality, you decide to make yourself lunch.
This isn't lunch.
This is an item on my bucket list.
You know, your list of things to do before you kick the bucket.
Or in this case, get pulverized by a meteor.
Number 22, eat a sandwich that contains every sandwich.
So here is the "PBT-RBHT- CSC-JAS-R-Double W.
"LT.
" That's a peanut butter, tuna, roast beef, ham, turkey, chicken salad, with cheddar, jack, American and Swiss, on rye, white and wheat With lettuce and tomato.
Well, I'm saving the world! I'm buying everything I need to build a gamma ray deflector.
Let's see, the last item in my shopping cart is three tons of sheet metal.
Proceed to checkout? Yes.
Do you have a coupon? No, no I don't.
Do you want your items gift wrapped? Sure, why not? We're about to be creamed by a meteor, it'll brighten the mood.
And, submit order.
There, done! We're saved! The world's not gonna end in four days! Whoo! Yeah! Uh-oh.
Five days for shipping.
I hope it's free 'cause we're all gonna be dead by the time it gets here.
Hi, I'm CeCe, I'm a Pisces which means my symbol is two fish.
Which is weird because I wouldn't eat one fish, let alone two.
I like pork chops.
CeCe, we haven't asked you anything yet.
Right.
So, CeCe and I started dancing when we were little.
Actually, CeCe and I met in dance class We don't want to hear about CeCe.
We want to hear about you.
Who is Rocky? Oh, that's easy.
I'm CeCe's best friend.
Oh, sorry.
And dance partner.
Oh, hold on, my phone is ringing.
Oh, it's my agent.
You better act fast.
Because I'm in high demand.
Oh, hold on, it's my phone.
Hello? What's that? Tell her to cut the bunk, we want to know who CeCe really is? Well, I, I Can't I just dance again? Why is dance special to you? Because dancing is fun.
Dancing is cool.
Dancing is, you know, great.
Okay, here's the deal.
I'm not the smartest kid in history, or math, or science, or language, or any other subject You do realize this is a school you're applying to.
My point is, that Yeah, I'm not the best student.
But the dance floor is the one place I get to be a genius.
Nice.
When I was growing up, I went through this really insane growth spurt.
And everyone made fun of me and called me names like giraffe and tree, and just in case you are wondering, yes, the weather is fine up here.
I mean, everyone made me feel so awkward.
But when I would dance, all those names, they would slip away.
I wasn't awkward.
I was I was me! And I was graceful, and I felt alive.
Good answer.
So I got an A? That's for me to decide.
Right.
Mmm, bill for Mom, bill for me that I'll give to Mom, catalogue for Mom that I'll take for me I got a letter from CFA! Me too! I got a packet! Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Why did I get a letter, and you got a packet? Wait, why did I get a packet and you got a letter? Uh-oh.
You're in, I'm out.
Rocky, we applied to a school.
Isn't it more likely that you're in, and I'm out? Well, normally, yes.
But CeCe, big envelopes have all the information and forms.
Small envelopes mean I'll never be a sandwich.
Unless big envelopes mean I have no idea what it means, guess I'll just have to open it and find out.
Okay Yes! I did it! I got in! I got in! Not that it matters.
I mean, it's just a stupid school.
Who cares? Yeah, you're right.
It's no big deal.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go make The Rocky Blue sandwich.
Alfalfa and Brussels sprouts on moldy bread.
All things nobody wants.
Rocky, don't rip up your letter.
You should at least read it first.
Why not? They clearly don't think I'm talented enough.
Wait, wait, wait! This piece says, "You have been accep Congra" Let me see that.
Oh, my Godfather! I got in! Don't just sit there, "congra" me! Congra! So, why was your packet so much bigger than mine? Mmm.
I don't know.
Oh, it's just says a bunch of stuff about how I qualify for a scholarship.
Wow.
I never thought you'd qualify for anything starting with the word "scholar.
" I wonder why I didn't qualify.
Uh, I don't know.
Here's the phone number to the school.
Call and ask them.
CeCe, that's not the phone number.
That's how much the school costs.
To go to or to build? We're so proud of you for getting into CFA, honey.
That's right, that's right.
I bragged to one of my patients for two hours.
Of course, he was under anesthesia, and his liver was sitting up on his chest, but it really touched his heart.
Well, I know I touched his heart.
Rocky, we have something to tell you and thought it best if it happened in public.
Yeah, so you don't freak out.
I can't believe it.
You're gonna have another baby? No! No, this factory is officially closed.
Well, then, what is it? Just tell me.
I won't freak out.
We can't afford to send you to CFA.
No! No, no, no.
This is not happening.
I cannot hear you! La-la-la-la-la Ugh, I can't think of anything for my bucket list! Why did I have to achieve all of my life's goals at such a young age? Come on, there's got to be something you want to do before we get vaporized by this meteor! Well, there is one thing, but it's a trifle silly.
My family is Scottish, and I always imagined that I'd learn to play the bagpipes, while wearing a traditional kilt.
Well, seeing you in a man skirt certainly wasn't on my bucket list But it is now! As hard as it is to say no, we can't do it.
I'll give up my allowance.
No.
I'll never buy clothes again.
No.
I'll get a part time job.
No.
No.
Wow.
You guys are a lot better at saying no than you think you are.
CeCe, I can't go to CFA.
I begged, I cried, I promised to do better in school, but of course, we all know that's not possible.
Bottom line is, they just can't afford it.
What if I give you half my scholarship? Then how will you pay for the other half? Hmm.
Oh, wait.
I know! You can give me half of your scholarship.
Okay.
Look, my parents are gonna talk to the Dean tomorrow about financial aid.
But they told me not to get my hopes up.
We're a double income family.
Hey, what if they thought you were a single parent household with a single income, like me? Okay, I don't know what you're thinking, but I recognize that look in your eyes.
It's that look you get right before you come up with some crazy idea, and I get grounded.
Don't worry if you get grounded, according to Henry, the longest it can last is Before Rocky's dad gets here, there's something we need to tell you.
The thing is I know it says on my application that I come from a double income household, but it's not true.
My mom walked out on us years ago.
All she left behind was a note saying, "I need to find myself, and I'm moving "to a remote village in Micronesia "where there's no access to telephones or Internet.
Or even a postal system.
" That's awful.
You know, my father wanted to walk out on us Mama wouldn't let him.
But wait, why didn't you just put this on your application? Because my father, he refuses to admit that she's gone.
Yeah, he actually pretends she's still around.
And we all go along with it because We don't want to upset him.
Sad, but true.
Well, on the bright side, this information does open up a new possibility of a scholarship.
Really? I had no idea.
Hi, girls.
Hi, I'm Dr.
Curtis Blue.
My apologies, but my wife won't be able to make it today.
She's having car problems.
Car problems.
So, Mr.
Taussig, I wanted to talk to you about reconsidering Rocky for a scholarship.
Her application does not tell the whole story.
No, no it doesn't.
How do you do it? Saving lives all day and raising your kids at the same time? Well, it's a challenge.
But it's not like I do it alone.
Because I'm there to help as much as he needs! Oh.
No, not you, CeCe.
My wife, Marcie.
Sure, we're like two ships passing in the night.
I work nights, and rush home to have breakfast with her, only to find that she's long gone.
Long gone.
Curtis, I never do this, but may I give you a hug? Oh! This is a progressive school.
I'm here! Sorry I'm late.
Someone let the air out of my tires.
It's a miracle! She's come home! Mom, you've come back! I missed you so much.
How was your trip back from Micronesia? What are you talking about, Rocky? I came from downtown.
Downtown Micronesia I'm grounded for a month.
I'm grounded for two months, and technically, I can't come into your apartment ever again.
Look, if you can't go to CFA, then I'm not going to CFA.
It just wouldn't be the same without you.
Don't even bother trying to change my mind.
He took away your scholarship, right? And my acceptance.
Me too.
But on the bright side, Mr.
Taussig was very impressed with our performance, and said we should audition again next year.
For the drama department.
Forty-two seconds until the meteor hits.
If I had to come to an untimely end, I'm glad it's with you, Flynn.
I love you, man.
Don't you have something to say to me? Fine.
I love you too, Henry.
Now, count us down.
Five, four, three, two At what point do we realize the meteor's not coming and we're just two dudes hugging under a table? And here I thought being hit by a meteor was going to be the most uncomfortable experience of the day.
I'll get it, Mom! This makes no sense.
I know my calculations were correct.
Check this out.
Astronaut ice cream.
It's a thank you package from NASA.
"Dear Flynn Jones, "Thanks for the tip about the meteor.
"You saved the world.
"Yours always, NASA.
" Great! One little case of phone-based anxiety, and I don't even get for saving the world.
I'll make you a deal.
I'll tell everyone you helped save the world if you don't tell anyone about that hug.
Shake it up
