204 - True Concert

True Jackson VP Was filmed in front Of a live studio audience.
Before I say the magic words, I'm required by law to ask If anybody here is allergic To deadly snake venom.
Can I see a show of hands? He doesn't have a real snake In there, right? I think I heard hissing.
It's either a snake Or someone's frying bacon.
- abracadabra, Alan kazam - Wait.
Did you just say Alan kazam? Yeah, he's my dad's lawyer.
He taught me this trick.
And Lucy? Where are you, girl? Hey, can you keep it down Out there? I'm trying to perform Some magic.
Good morning, class.
It's a beautiful day, isn't it? What's going on, miss park? You seem happy.
I've just come from The big school budget meeting.
Principal ruckman informed us That because of cutbacks, He's eliminating The design program.
- but that's terrible.
- Why are you so happy? He approved funding For a cappuccino machine In the teachers' lounge.
Oh, that's good.
But design is where I learned how to sew.
We've gotta do something.
True, you're a student And this is your school.
If there is something You feel strongly about, It doesn't matter, You're completely powerless.
But there has to be a way To make principal ruckman Change his mind.
Oh, indeed there is.
Just come up with the $6,000 To close the budget gap.
Now, this needs just A sprinkle of shaved chocolate.
Everybody stare straight ahead Until I get back.
- I can fix this.
- Where are you Gonna get $6,000? - don't worry.
I've got a plan.
- Thank you all for being here.
I have a very exciting project To talk to you about.
Kopelman, What are you doing here? This is a kids only meeting, Could you give us, Like, a half an hour? He's confused, true.
Maybe you should try Telling him in a way He'll actually understand.
All right, kopelman, Out! The issue at hand is What kind of show can we put on To raise $6,000? Simple.
I'll do a magic show.
Next order of business.
This is the only order Of business And it's not resolved yet.
No one's gonna pay To watch you do magic tricks.
Oh, really? What if I did this? Imagine how cool It would've been if a bird Just shot out of my sleeve.
Is that your actual act Where you talk about How cool something Would have been? More or less.
Fine, plan b.
We auction off a date with me.
That'll get you 5,800 bucks And we'll just need to come up With the extra 200.
I can't believe I'm saying this, But Ryan's date idea Is the one to beat.
Oh, wait, What about your band, Jimmy? Can they play the fundraiser? - nah, we broke up.
- Really, why? We could never find The time to rehearse.
What with my schedule at work Plus the guys in the band Busy playing shows With another drummer.
Aw, dude, that's rough.
It must've been hard Getting replaced.
Replaced? What do you mean? Just that it sounds like Your band fired you And hired another drummer.
Where do you get that from? What, just because they put His name on the front Of my drum Kit? I gotta go.

- It's more like A no-talent show.
- hey.
- Oh, not you.
You were great.
- so can we be in it? - I don't think so.
There's no telling How the crowd would react To an extended flute solo.
Actually, we play In a rock band on the weekends.
Yeah, we tear it up In my mom's sewing room.
I really appreciate it, But the crowd came to see A big musical group, And no offense, But I don't think Anything you do Could win them over.
- at least let us play One song.
- Yeah, just one.
- what do you think, lu? - It's worth a shot.
Okay, one song.
But at the first sign of danger, I'm coming out to save you.
- let's go, you guys.
We've got a gig.
- Hey, everybody.
Thanks a lot for your patience.
- let's make her a patient.
- Man, that's One prepared heckler.
Okay, who here likes Last-minute scheduling changes? Because you're in luck, Justin bieber couldn't make it.
- boo! - But his loss is our gain, Because we have a great band To play here for you tonight.
So before you start Charging the stage With your torches And your pitchforks, Please, let's put Our hands together for What's your band's name? - care bears on fire.
- Really? I wanted to call us The fun hat bunch, But I got outvoted.
