Shake It Up! s02e20 Episode Script

Tunnel It Up

You know your dancing stinks when your invisible dance partner is better than you are.
I happen to be practicing for the slow dance at the school formal.
Hmm.
In that case, you should practice sitting on the side alone, crying.
For your information, I happen to have a dance date.
But What? I thought we were going to the dance together.
We are.
But I'm meeting Matt Tucker there for a slow dance.
Matt Tucker! Matt Tucker! Who's Matt Tucker? All you need to know is that he's 6'2".
And if I wanna wear heels for my first slow dance, it was either him or the center for the girls' basketball team.
Who didn't ask me.
Well, it will all be perfect after I'm crowned Spring Queen, and then, I'll have plenty of royal subjects to command to dance with me.
You do realize you're not going to be an actual queen, right? I cannot wait for this Saturday night, either.
I'm going to have my picture taken wearing a special handmade gown.
It's nothing like I usually wear.
Oh, good.
It's much more elaborate.
How? Does it shoot fireworks? Fingers crossed I get the permits in time.
Well, it all starts this Saturday night at 7:00.
This will be the most amazing night of our lives! You can never say something is going to be amazing before it is.
You'll jinx it.
Okay, that is a ridiculous, unfounded superstition.
Ah! Great news! I just found out Shake It Up, Chicago! Is getting its own Saturday night special! That's right, we're going prime time, baby! It all starts at 7:00 this Saturday night.
Exactly the same time as the school formal.
Oh, too little, too late.
Everybody, everybody, get out on the floor Don't knock it till you rock 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 Yeah, roger that.
I've located Hessenheffer and Jones.
I have your tickets for the Spring Formal.
- Oh, thank you.
- Thank you.
Hey, what's the dealio with the headset? What, are you dense, or something? Hey.
All I asked was Oh! I'm not talking to you.
Of course I have to approve the banner for the school dance before it goes up! Duh! I'm in charge of the Spring Formal this year and it's gonna be awesome.
Hmm, well, we cannot go.
We have to dance on Shake It Up, Chicago! that night, thanks to the red-headed jinx.
Aw, too bad.
By the way, no refunds.
But it doesn't say that anywhere on the tickets.
Now it does.
Good news! We are going to the school dance and we're going to dance on the Saturday night special.
Women today can work and have personal lives.
There is no reason why we can't have it all.
Nope, no reason.
Except we can't be in two places at once.
Or can we? Now, do you remember that oral report I did about Chicago having the most intricate underground tunnel system in the United States? Do I? Best nap ever! Now, obviously we can't go running back and forth through the streets at night, but what if we ran under the streets? You have my attention.
But I reserve the right to take it back at any time.
Okay.
We only have to make three appearances in the show.
The 7:00 check-in, the dance in the middle, and the finale.
The rest of the time we'll be slow-dancing with Matt Tucker.
Getting crowned Spring Queen.
Being photographed in the most beautiful gown in the world.
And showing that women can have it all.
Let's celebrate.
Hey, Deuce! A round of mango strawberry smoothies! Uh, we're out of mangos, strawberries, and smoothies.
I guess you can't really have it all.
What the heck is the matter with you? I haven't even said anything yet.
Not you, sweetie.
I'm on the phone with the wannabe photographer.
Look, I don't see how shooting Oprah for the cover of Chicago Monthly is more important than my spring formal! Anything I can help with? Not unless you can pull a photographer out of that jacket of yours.
Photographer? No can do.
But photographer, slash videographer, slash notary public? Yes, can do! My cousin Cherry's boyfriend, Lumpy.
Everything you need for a special occasion, a wedding, a dance.
Proof of citizenship.
Okay, but he better be a good photographer.
Good? He's great.
He takes mug shots for a living.
A lot of celebrities ask for him by name.
We only have 52 minutes.
So, that gives us plenty of time to get to the school, hang out and be back in time for our dance number.
I'm so excited.
This is going to be the best night ever.
- CeCe! - CeCe! Wow! So, how do I look? You know, minus the spit in my hair, of course.
You look really pretty, CeCe.
So do you, Rocky.
Tinka, would you hurry it up? Okie-dokie, I'm no slow-pokie! How do I look? Wow.
I'm speechless.
In that case, I should wear this more often.
Now, which one of you is going to crawl under my dress and put on my shoes? She is.
Huh? Huh? What do you think? Hey, what's black and white and has one giant eyebrow? You! Oh, yeah? Well, what's nine years old, smells funny and makes a lot of noise? Our refrigerator.
No! You! And I changed because as soon as your mom comes home, I'm out of here and meeting Dina at the formal.
But first, do you have any tweezers? I'll get it, Mom! Dude, it's my phone.
I know.
I just like yelling in your face.
Hey, Lumpy.
How's it going? Uh-huh, uh-huh.
Really? Okay.
Yeah, yeah.
Bye.
Oh, no.
Dina's gonna freak out! Lumpy can't take pictures at the dance.
He's stuck at the bank.
There's a robbery in progress.
My mom's going to need you to babysit me for the rest of the night.
She's stuck at work.
Some photographer, slash videographer, slash notary public is holding up a bank.
Wow, this tunnel is so cool! I know! You may recall from my research report that they were originally built for Tinka! Rocky's talking about her research report again! Hurry up! Oh! Give me a break! You two aren't wearing 15 pounds of beautiful dress.
Hate to break it to you, but neither are you.
Oh, no! One of my layers has ripped off.
Now everyone will stare at me when I get to the dance.
Yeah, now they're gonna stare at you.
Okay.
Just remember it's really easy to get to the school from here.
All you have to do is left, right, left, and then a left, left, right.
Hey, just like our dance in the finale! Tinka, would you stop trying to scare us with those snake sounds? I'm not making snake sounds.
Just kidding.
I was making snake sounds.
That will teach you to mock my layers.
You really outdid yourself, Dina.
I mean, everything looks beautiful.
Oh! Thank you, Deucie.
But the most beautiful thing in the room is you.
And your hair.
And your eyes.
And your forgiving nature.
Spill your guts, Martinez.
Deuce is too chicken to tell you, but the photographer canceled.
But the good news is I'll be joining you two on your date tonight.
Dude, don't just stand there, go get me and Dina some punch.
Don't worry.
I'll handle the punch.
How do we look? Great! Except you have a little bit of cobweb on your back.
Oh, so do you, CeCe.
Okay.
I'll get it.
Well, somebody check me! - Ugh.
- Okay.
Hey.
Wow, it looks great.
So, I'm gonna go find Matt Tucker.
And I'm gonna go say hi to the Spring Queen crown that's on display.
And I'm going to get my picture taken.
So, how long do we have before we have to head back to Shake It Up, Chicago!? Let's see, we had 52 minutes, it took us dress through the exit, five minutes to get here, another eight minutes to get Tinka's dress through the entrance, and adding the time it'll take us to get back and change for our dance number, we have to leave right now.
- What? - What? Yes, now! Go! Go! Go! We've got three minutes! Okay, you pull and I'll push.
It's not working! Ahhh! There really are snakes down here! It's fine.
You know, we're having it all, we're living the dream! Okay, CeCe, zip me up.
Oh! Okay.
Where have you been? I've been looking for you! Where have we been? Where have you been? Yeah! We have been looking for you! You have? Why? Because the show is about to start in 10 seconds and you still have to get out there and introduce us.
Right, of course.
Thanks for having my back, you guys.
You're going to be over the moon for this next dance that's blasting off in four, three, two, boom! Yeah, yeah Oh! Hey! Take me up to Mars On the back of shootin' stars Supercharged I'm gonna clear the atmosphere There's a party up in here Been waitin' light years Take me into orbit I've been waitin' for it I been waitin' Been waitin' Ready for the countdown You can feel my heart pound Can you, can you Can you feel it?

Yes! We did it! We danced on the Saturday night special, and now we have almost an hour at the dance to make all of our dreams come true.
This night will be perfect for all of us.
We're having some technical difficulties.
This could take a while.
Hang tight.
Oops.
Now you guys are just spitting at me.
You are correct.
Hurry, hurry, hurry! They're crowning the queen in 15 minutes.
Great.
Thanks to you, now I only have seven layers left.
You're welcome! I can't get my helmet off.
Come on, come on, we have to go.
I am wearing a space helmet.
What will Matt Tucker say? "What an improvement"? Yeah.
Looking good! All right.
Deucie, I need you now! We have a code five at the fruit punch fountain! - What's a code five? - Don't question me! Jones, you're on photo duty.
Am I really the best choice for the Yes, ma'am.
Next! Beautiful.
Move a little to the left.
Big smile, big smile, and Got it! That's a keeper.
Next! Hey, weren't you just here taking a picture with that smokin' hot blonde? Hey, where are you going? Just trying to make memories! Next! Okay, I get it.
You decided you didn't need dates.
Yeah, bro power! Everybody, on the count of three, say "losers!" Left, right, left! Ow! Ow! Ow! Stupid tunnel! Dina, did you crown the queen yet? Yeah.
Good news, you won! - I did? - Yes! But since you weren't here, they gave the crown to Cathy Davis.
Cathy Davis? Cathy Davis? Who's Cathy Davis? What I want to know is who's not turning off their microphone when they're going to the bathroom? Rocky, did you hear? I won, but I lost the crown.
Why couldn't I have lost and won the crown? Really, you're complaining to me? Because if you haven't noticed, I am wearing a toaster oven on my head! Now, please go find Matt Tucker and ask him to save a slow dance for me.
I don't know why this picture line is taking so long.
It is as if they have a child behind the camera.
We're running out of time! I need to get my picture taken before I lose another layer of my dress.
I only have six layers left.
Wait, four.
Why are there only four? Uh, you must have miscounted.
Oh no, it's Gary.
He says, "A dance crew didn't show up "and they're moving up the finale.
" We have to go right now.
Could you go find CeCe? Okay.
Hey, cool space helmet.
If you can get it off, you can have it.
Oh! It'll be easy.
We can just run through the tunnels.
We can have it all.
I don't know about you two, but I no longer want it all.
All I want is a towel.
I'm sweating like a yak during slaughter season.
Break the frame Break the frame Hey, do you hear that? It kind of sounds like the song we have to dance to in the finale.
That's because it is the song we have to dance to during the finale.
Now go! Go! Go! Go, CeCe, go! Go, go, go, go! Gotta break the frame We're not the same At the edge of the mirror Ha! Wow! Great job, guys.
Hey! Thanks for letting us shake up your Saturday night, Chicago.
And, Susie Stonehouse, see? I told you I had to work tonight.
This is Gary Wilde saying good night, everybody! You know I gotta talk to Jessica in wardrobe.
She's making the weirdest choices lately.
- Well, uh - Don't defend her.
I mean, look at my tie.
It doesn't even match my socks.
Okay, that's I'm sorry, guys.
We missed most of the finale, CeCe missed her crown, you never got your picture, and I'm never gonna get my slow dance.
This was a bad idea on my part.
We should just forget the whole thing.
Well, maybe I didn't get my crown, but you two still have time to get your dreams, and I'm gonna make sure it happens.
Thank you, CeCe.
You know what? You're right.
I'm not going to give up.
Me either! Back to the ladder! Oh, Forget the ladder! We're taking a cab! We're too late.
The dance is over.
Thanks for trying, CeCe, but it looks like I missed my slow dance with Matt Tucker.
But perhaps it's not too late for me to get my picture taken.
You know, maybe it's just a big lie.
Maybe you can't really have it all.
Or maybe you can.
Dina? I got your text, CeCe.
No one leaves a Dina Garcia production unhappy.
We're a go, people.
The eagle is hungry! Repeat, the eagle is hungry! - Hey, Rocky.
- Hey, Matt Tucker.
I thought you left.
Uh, I did.
I was at home in bed when two of Deuce's cousins showed up and, uh, insisted I come back.
But I'm glad they did.
May I have this dance? Any chance you could send someone to Cathy Davis' house and get me my crown back? Way ahead of you.
She fought like a dog, but I got it.
May I have this dance? What do you think you're doing? Uh, packing up.
But I want my picture taken.
Oh.
Sorry, Tinka.
It's been a long night.
I'm exhausted and I'm done taking pictures.
Deuce, I am warning you.
I lost one layer getting into the taxi cab and one layer getting out.
So, snap my picture before I snap you.
Now that I think about it, what's one more photo, right? All right.
Oh, wait, Tinka.
You got, like, one little thread.
Right there.
I got it.
Just take the picture.
Now! Wow! You look beautiful.
My dress.
It's so simple, understated and refined.
I hate it! This whole day was a total waste!
