Shake It Up! s03e03 Episode Script

Spirit It Up

Hey, CeCe.
Got your text and I'm here to help you cram for your science test.
Who's ready to play Wheel of Physics! Okay, what's going on? Rocky, we're concerned about you.
This is an intermission.
- Intervention.
- That too.
Ever since Shake It Up, Chicago Burned down, you have shown all the classic symptoms of Dance-withdrawal.
Mood swings, cold sweats, dancing at inappropriate times.
Mmm.
Like your oddly-shaped big toe, it's not pretty.
But, Rocky, you're not alone.
I went through the same thing and you helped me get me through my funk and now We're gonna help you through yours.
Okay, guys, this is ridiculous.
All right, I am in complete control of my dancing.
I can stop whenever I want.
Oh, classic denial.
Deucie, hit it.
[Dance music playing] Stop.
Ooh! Okay, don't just stand there, help me! [Indistinct] 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.
'Til you rock it.
We can't take it no more.
Bring the lights up, bust the doors down.
All together now.
Shake It Up, Shake It Up.
Shake It Up.
Look, I wanna dance just as much as you do, Rocky.
And, here's an idea, what about community theater? Oh, that could work.
Great! We can audition for Beauty and The Beast.
I can be beauty and you can be the Don't, even, say it.
See, you're a natural! [Sighs] Come on, I'm trying.
What, do you think some big dance opportunity is just going to waltz right up to us? [Cheering weakly] Go team.
Fight team.
Get in the spirit.
Yay.
Come see the Spirit Squad perform at the pep rally this Friday.
Go! Or don't.
[Sighs] Oh, yes.
The Spirit Squad.
You know they should have their own TV show, "So You Know You Can't Dance".
Actually, I know two amazing dancers on that squad.
- Who? - Me and you.
Eh, it's better than being "the beast".
Oh, Deuce, Dina.
So, what are you two love partridges up to? Just sharing an after-school smoothie.
Half the carbs, twice the love.
[Chuckles] You left out, "best shared with friends".
Well! Sorry, Tinka.
This is a booth for two.
So go crack open a fresh box of beat-it.
Isn't this smoothie juicy, Deucie? [Chuckles] Well, Sweetie, it's certainly sweeter than you are.
How could you be so mean to Tinka? Mean? Since when is pushing and insulting someone Oh, I see your point.
I mean, the poor girl's got three strikes against her, her brother's gone, her dance show's off the air, and her clothes make her look like a box of melted crayons.
I mean, would it be so horrible for us to let her join us? [Sighs] You're right, Deucie, let's cut that sequined sad-sack some slack.
- Tinka, would you - I'd love to.
[Giggles] Hey, I don't know you.
I just moved in.
Cool, a new kid in the building.
And lucky you, you're me-adjacent.
Flynn's the name, fun's the game.
- Oh, hi.
My name is - I'll just call you freckles.
So, wanna hang out? Thanks, Flynn, but I don't think so.
You kind of have a Reputation.
For being really cool? Actually, I hear you have a little bit of a Revolving door in your sandbox.
What does that mean? You make a friend, have a few laughs, get bored and move on to someone new.
I'm looking for an LTBFF.
Lettuce, tomato, bacon, french fries? No.
Long term best friends forever.
Nothing personal, but I'm not nine anymore.
I need someone who can go the distance.
Okay.
I mean, this is ridiculous.
I can totally Not gonna happen, dude.
Oh, forget you.
"Revolving door in my sandbox".
What a crock.
Hi, Mr.
Chang.
May I speak to Edwin please? It's his LTBFF, Flynn.
The Changs moved? Three years ago? Hi.
Um, I'm CeCe and this is Rocky.
And we want to join your Spirit Squad.
Yeah, I think we can really help you guys.
I mean, we know style, we know rhythm.
And we know how to keep the tights from getting stuck up your butt.
And we could teach you everything there is to know about dancing.
That is so awesome of you guys! But we're good.
Aren't you guys maybe just a little bit worried about, embarrassing yourselves at next week's pep rally? Not at all.
We're calling in sick that day.
[Laughing] Then why did you even join the Spirit Squad? Uh, for the free period.
Because otherwise, we'd have to take gym, and that's not how we roll.
[Laughing] Okay, look.
You guys really need some help, and we really need an outlet for our dance, but mostly You guys really need some help.
So, maybe we could just give it a try.
Yeah, show us the one dance you do that can really make a crowd roar, and not with laughter.
There is something we've been working on to pump up the football team.
Good enough.
Good enough.
Good enough.
Or not.
Oh, forget it, you can be the beauty.
Let's get out of here.
No, look, CeCe, I think we can really turn this Spirit Squad around.
All right, listen up, ladies.
Good enough, is not good enough, not in Rocky Blue's book.
All right, with a little effort, you guys could be great.
Everyone deserves at least one shining moment and I think that this pep rally could be yours.
All right? Now, who's ready to shine? If you say yes, Rocky will do all your homework for a week.
- I'm in.
- Oh, yeah, I'm in.
You sure about the neon turquoise? I was thinking basic black.
Black boots with black jeans? Seriously, Dina, your taste in clothes is almost as bad as your taste in Oh, hi, Deuce.
Aw, look at you two, together again.
You two are harder to separate than my eyebrows.
So, uh, Dina, what time's our movie date this afternoon? - Well, actually - I had plans this afternoon.
We're going tonight, seven o'clock.
I snagged us tickets to the 3-D showing.
They're more expensive, but we're worth it.
Right, Tinky? Wait, wait, wait.
Wait, Tinky's coming with us? Oh, honey, can I, can I talk to you for a second? Just What's the deal? For the past two days, she's been like a third wheel.
Eating with us, studying with us.
What happens after the movie when I try to kiss you good-night? Are you both gonna slap me in the face? But, Sweetie, I really like having a new girlfriend.
And it was all your idea.
Yeah, you're right.
I'm sorry.
Kiss and make up? Deucie, not in school.
Flynn: Come on Quickie-Bake Oven, work your magic.
[Sniffs] Oh, hey, freckles.
I didn't realize I left the door open.
Just testing my sister's old Quickie-Bake Oven.
Takes six hours to make one cookie but I don't mind the commitment.
Want one? My mind says no, but who cares what my mind says, I'm hungry.
So, while you're enjoying your organic fruit juice sweetened cookie, perhaps you'd like to check out one of my 1000 channels.
You get 1000 channels? Yeah.
Even though I'm really more of a one channel kind of guy.
It even gets foreign stations.
You haven't lived until you've seen The Flintstones in Italian.
"Yabboli, dabboli doo!" Well, I guess I could watch for a few minutos.
I knew it would work.
- Excuse me? - Oh, nothing.
All right.
Five, six, seven, eight.
Yay.
[Chuckles] Not bad, huh, Rocky? No, not bad.
Terrible! Did any of you practice last night? Well, I would have, but you kept us here past my bedtime.
This routine is too hard.
Why are there so many steps? Eight! There's eight steps.
When CeCe and I were on Shake It Up, Chicago!, we had to learn a whole new dance every week.
Again with the Shake It Up, Chicago!? I wish she would "shut it up, Chicago".
Maybe we should just take a little break.
No! Okay? The pep rally is in three days and we need to practice until it is perfect! Or at least good enough.
Good enough.
Good enough Would you please stop that.
Thank you.
Rocky, give them some credit.
I mean, they're getting better.
Margie only fell down twice and nobody sprained anything this time.
CeCe, this is my big opportunity to dance again.
I'm not gonna let them hold me back.
Do you hear yourself? It's all, "me, me, me".
You sound like me.
All right, back to work, ladies.
All right? For the last part, you guys do your spin, and then I step forward Do my big move and end with the show-stopper.
And, uh, what do we do? What, just stand in the back picking our tights out of our butts? That would kind of be a step up from what you're doing now.
All right, ladies.
Get some water, call your families, it's gonna be a long night! CeCe, the girls and I have unanimously voted you as President of The Squad.
[Gasps] Oh, yay! I'm, I'm so honored! What does The Squad President have to do? Well, for starters, fire her.
Really? Okay, that's easy.
Sorry, Margie, you're out.
No, not Margie.
Rocky.
Ooh, that's going to be a little bit harder.
All right, I'm fully hydrated and ready to rehearse.
Let's go, people! Where is everyone? They all went home.
Those slackers are lucky that I don't kick them off The Squad.
[Fake laughs] It's funny you should say that.
I mean, we're the real dancers.
[Chuckles] We can just replace them with streamers and oscillating fans.
Yeah, about that.
Um, everyone who's still on The Squad, please do a double pirouette forward.
Not so fast, Rocky.
CeCe, what's going on? Well, you know, how everyone says that there's no "I" in team? It turns out that there's no "U" either.
I'm kicked out? [Chuckles] Wait, I'm kicked out! Oh, thank goodness you finally got it.
I was running out of cute ways to tell you.
But why? Well, remember how you gave them that motivational speech, about how everyone deserves a shining moment? Yeah, you kind of stole that shining moment for yourself.
But it's not all bad news.
Guess who got elected to Squad President? [Fake laughs] [Sighs] You guys ready to order? There's, [Chuckles] There's, there's nothing up there.
I just tweaked my neck sitting in the front row at the movies, while my girlfriend and her new best buddy enjoyed the 3-D experience, from the best seats in the house.
But am I bitter? [Chuckles] Darn right I am.
- I am Tinka.
- And I am Dina.
And we are Both: Sisters from different misters! Don't throw up, it'll get it in your eyes.
Don't throw up, it'll get it in your eyes.
Dina, can, can we talk alone? Deucie, what's wrong? - Well, at first - [Stammering] One second.
Good.
At first, I was afraid Tinka was becoming a third wheel.
But now, I just realized I'm the third wheel.
Well, you know, the third wheel is the most important wheel on a tricycle.
I can't take this anymore.
I miss my girlfriend.
It's either Tinka or me.
- You're making me choose? - I'm making you choose.
- You're making me choose? - I'm making you choose! Fine! I choose Tinka.
Hm! Wow, that did not go the way I thought it would.
Wow, we've been playing for hours and it's getting pretty late.
You're right.
I'll ask my mom if I can sleep over.
Well, I don't know.
If I don't get a full 16 hours of shut-eye, I am a wreck in the morning.
There it is.
I knew it was coming.
The revolving door's spinning again.
No, no, no.
I was just thinking about you.
I mean, who wants a grumpy LTBFF? Oh, good.
Speaking of which, it's only another three weeks till our one month friend-iversary! Has it only been a week? Feels longer.
I know.
Oh, and we should really decide which sleep-away camp we're going to this summer.
We wanna make sure we're in the same bunk.
Whoa! Slow down.
Sleep-away camp? What's the problem? Too big a commitment for you? No.
I am totally 100% committed to this friendship.
So, we're definitely on for tomorrow? Pinochle Marathon with your grandparents.
Can't wait.
[Chanting] Pinochle, Pinochle, Pinochle, whoa.
Aren't you excited? I'll be counting down the minutes! See you tomorrow.
See ya.
[Telephone ringing] Hello.
Oh, hey, Jermaine, what's up? Parasailing? With you and your dad? When do we set sail? Tomorrow? Can you hold on? [Sobs] Just one more second.
[Continues sobbing] Hey, you going to the pep rally? Why should I? To be with people who don't want me around? Hey, that's my problem, too.
I tried to help the Spirit Squad and they repaid me by kicking me out.
Dina and Tinka kicked me out too! So, why should I go to the pep rally and show my support? You shouldn't.
You're doing the right thing.
Forget them.
- So, you agree with me? - 100%.
- Okay.
- Where are you going? To apologize to the Spirit Squad.
If you think I'm right, I'm definitely wrong.
Dina: Excuse me.
Sorry.
Dina, Dina.
Look, I'm sorry.
I thought I was right and you were wrong, but when I told Rocky she was right, I found out I was wrong.
Okay, I heard the word sorry in there, so I'm going to assume that was an apology and say "All is forgiven, baby".
Thank you.
Look, there's Tinka.
Why don't you go watch the pep rally with her? I'll be fine.
Oh, okay.
I'll see you later.
Make a hole! Make it wide! Excuse me.
Pardon me.
Sorry.
Hey, Tinka.
Move over so I can cop a squat.
[Chuckles] Well, I was in the midst of canoodling but I guess three's company.
No, wait.
Three's not company, three's a crowd.
Which is what Deuce was saying all along.
Got to go.
Make another hole! Make it wider! Thank goodness she got the hint.
[Chuckles] Now, where were we? Ah, yes.
Not in school! [Chuckles] You know, Deucie, I was thinking I'd much rather sit with you than Tinka.
- She blew you off, huh? - No.
But this sister missed her Mister.
[Crowd cheering] Oh, my gosh! That crowd is huge.
It's like the whole school showed up! That's because it's a pep rally.
And the whole school showed up.
Except for Rocky.
I hope she's not too upset.
Has anybody seen her? No.
All I'm seeing is my whole embarrassing life flash before my eyes.
Oh, like the time that I just pitted out in front of everybody.
- That's right now, Margie.
- Oh! We can't do this.
You guys, we're not ready, we should get out of here.
Well, but, guys, we're on in five.
She's right.
Hurry, everyone.
Run! Hey, guys.
Um, I just wanted to say that You were right to kick me off The Squad.
And I'm really sorry.
Thank you.
That means so much.
- Now out of our way, we're bailing.
- No what? You, you guys can't give up now.
You've worked so hard, okay.
I know you're great.
And it's time for everyone out there to know, too.
Wow, that's a great speech, Rocky.
You put the spirit in Spirit Squad! And as your President, I demand that Rocky dance with us.
Thanks, CeCe, but I don't wanna come back unless everyone wants me to.
Just to be clear, if everyone wants me to, I'm totally willing, okay.
[Blowing whistle] [Playing] Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Your moves are just so whatever.
I don't wanna brag but I know I got the right stuff.
Cause everything I do just.
Keeps on moving up.
Hey, wait a minute if your heart's not in it.
No way you could win it.
So step out of my way.
'Cause anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Your moves are just so whatever.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Stop! Now hit it.
[Crowd cheering] All right, Margie, it's time for the show-stopper.
You want us swaying in the back or can we go home now? You're not going anywhere because you're doing it.
You can't have a shining moment unless you're willing to shine.
Rocky, sometimes life requires more than encouraging words, sometimes it requires an encouraging shove.
Stop! Lets go! Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Anything you can do I can do better.
Your moves just so whatever.
All right, Margie, you can stop shining now.
Um, actually, no, I can't.
Okay.
Woo! Dance on! Yay! Oh, hey, Flynn.
Don't, "oh, hey, Flynn" me! I spent all afternoon playing Pinochle with your grand parents and you never showed.
You didn't call, you didn't text.
Geez Flynn don't be so clingy, something came up.
Jermaine from school invited me to go Parasailing! Jermaine? Invited you? Apparently there was a last minute opening.
I didn't think you'd mind since only a looser would choose Pinochle over that.
Can you hold on one second? [Sobs] Just one more second.
[Continues sobbing]
