True Jackson, VP (2008) s02e07 Episode Script

206 - True Valentine

True Jackson VP was filmed in front of a live studio audience.
Hey, Lulu, I forgot to do my homework.
Can you help me out? Of course.
This says "don't forget to do your homework.
" Yeah, you need anything else? Happy Valentine's day.
Wow, awesome dress.
Thanks, I designed it especially for today.
My inspiration was cupid.
You know, what would have been cool? If you had attached wings to the back.
Oh, I did, but when I was racing to the bus this morning, I discovered what happens when you try to run with big wings on.
Oh my gosh, did you fly? No, I knocked over about 20 people.
I looked like a feathered linebacker running down fifth Avenue.
Sorry, I'm late.
I was walking to the bus when some lunatic wearing angel wings knocked coffee all over me.
Happy Valentine's day, miss park.
Ahh! We don't celebrate that here.
In fact, I have banned the exchange of valentines in my classroom.
What? Why? Because it's not fair to people who never get any, like Ryan.
Excuse me, it just so happens I got a Valentine, from my girlfriend, Kelsey.
I'm not your girlfriend and I didn't get you a Valentine.
Anyone caught exchanging valentines will get detention.
Are we clear? Good, I will now put up photos from the st.
Valentine's day massacre to commemorate this day.
Psst, Lulu.
I know it's against the rules, but I can't wait.
What did you just say? I said, "awww, "that gangster looks cute in his robbing mask.
" What's in your hand? Nothing.
It's a Valentine.
It's not for me.
Who's it for then, me? Yes.
"I really like you.
Signed, m.
J.
" Who's m.
J.
? Uh Mr.
Jameson? Yes.
Lulu, what are you doing? I don't know.
Change of plans.
Instead of learning about a silly massacre, who feels like talking about rainbows? Whoa.
Hey, Kelsey, you know that Valentine you got me? I was thinking about making the ys in both our names intertwine like hands.
That sounds pretty.
Really? No.
Lulu, I can't believe you let miss park think that Valentine was for her.
I know, I panicked.
But I think we should focus on the positive.
I didn't get in any trouble.
Not yet, but as soon as she figures out you made it all up, she's going to send you to detention for a hundred years.
She can do that? She can do anything.
Oh, man.
I wish Mr.
Jameson really did like miss park, so we could get out of this.
What do you mean, we? Nothing, best friend.
Actually, we don't really know that he doesn't like her.
You think Mr.
Jameson likes miss park? Who knows? Grown-ups are weird.
Hey, Mr.
Jameson, what's cooking? Ah, 600 gallons of volcano goo.
It's for the science fair tomorrow.
Better not tell Ryan about this.
He'd be in here with a giant spoon faster than you can say "free volcano goo.
" So what can I do for you ladies? Mr.
jameson, do you know what today is? Thursday? Sunday? I have no idea.
It's February 14th.
Oh, the day element 103, lawrencium, was added to the periodic table.
Right, but also Valentine's day.
Allow us to get right to the point.
True? Do you like miss park? Uh, what makes you think I have a crush on the smart and lovely miss park? Aah.
Uh, no reason.
Would you ever consider asking her out on a date? Oh, no, no, no, I don't think I could ever do that.
But it sounds like you might like her.
Well, if you're asking if I've ever fantasized about taking her to the dance club and showing off my moves, of course.
Your moves? You got moves? Oh, yeah, I don't wanna brag, but I have been described as a wild mongoose on the dance floor.
Oh, well, I'd love to talk, kids, but my lava's ready.
He definitely likes her.
She definitely likes him.
It's the job for cupid.
Extraordinary! From my head to my toes it's all real and you know fresh and cool it's just what I do t-r-u-e j-a-c-k-s-o-n v-p working at a grown-up job I never really knew I could work this hard just used to sit at home and watch tv now I'm in an office as the new vp I'm always setting trends with my two best friends when things get out of hand we have a plan we're just messin' around and we're makin' new ground for the whole wide world to see if you see us in town you know it's goin' down 'cause I'm the new vp wow, Oscar.
Those are beautiful.
Aren't they amazing? They just arrived for Amanda.
Oscar, do you have any oh, look at that gorgeous bouquet.
What lucky girl are those for? They're for you.
For me? "Amanda, my greatest regret "is the day I walked away "from you.
Love, brock champion.
" Brock champion? That goofy model you dated for two weeks? He was not goofy, and it was hardly two weeks.
It was 19 glorious days.
Well, why aren't you still dating him? As I believe I mentioned, he got recruited to play professional baseball in Peru.
They've got baseball in Peru? Of course.
What do you think, he was lying? No, we didn't say that.
It was just a suggestion.
Well, come along, flowers.
She sent them to herself? That's my guess.
Ryan, do they have baseball in Peru? Uh, probably.
They play that boring sport everywhere.
You know what they should play is appleball.
That would've been a home run in appleball.
Did you mean to break my window? No, I did not.
That is the stupidest sport ever.
Clearly you've never seen peach volleyball.
Okay, we've got to come up with a plan.
What sort of plan? We're trying to figure out a way to get miss park and Mr.
jameson together.
Gross, why? Because it's Valentine's day and they're both too shy to do anything about it.
I've got this one.
All you have to do is lure 'em both into a giant cardboard box and shut the lid.
Or suffocated.
You know, I hate to admit it, but maybe he's right.
Maybe it's just a matter of getting them both in the same place at the same time.
I know Jimmy has some big boxes in the mailroom.
Uh-uh, I was thinking something more along the lines of a school dance.
We could get miss park and Mr.
Jameson to chaperone.
That's a great idea.
When should we do it? Tonight.
Tonight? It's Valentine's day.
All we need is decorations, music, and permission.
I like it.
This would give me and Kelsey a chance to rekindle what we once had.
Rekindle? Once had? Whatever, it's easier than luring her into a giant cardboard box.
Wait, principal ruckman is not gonna let us use the gym.
Tomorrow's the science fair, remember? Nah, don't worry about ruckman.
I think I can persuade him with the help of a certain dead president.
You're gonna bribe him with a $20 bill? A 20? Who am I, the mayor? I thought it was a single.
Augh, what a mess.
Hey, Oscar, I'm heading out.
Hold my calls.
You don't get calls.
If I'm not back in an hour, have 'em push the meeting.
You don't go to meetings.
Keep up the good work.
Hey, Mikey J.
Hey.
Oh, man What's wrong? I bought these for Lulu, but they're kinda lame.
I'll take 'em for the mailroom.
Hank loves flowers.
This is me and Lulu's first Valentine's day.
I want it to be perfect.
You should write her a song.
Really? Yeah.
What could be more romantic? If you want, I can help.
Have you ever heard of diarrhea? My mom once cooked us a chicken she bought at the gas station.
No, my band.
The point is, I'm a professional songwriter.
Come on, let's do this.
Amanda, another bouquet of flowers arrived for you.
I don't think so.
"Amanda, I can't get you "out of my mind.
"Happy Valentine's day, love, brock.
" They better not have charged me twice.
I mean, they better not have charged brock twice.
That's weird, Mikey J said he was gonna come by and visit.
Maybe he's just running a little late.
But he never runs late.
He's like the dutch subway system.
Don't jump to any weird conclusions.
You don't think he's breaking up with me, do you? No, Lulu.
Sorry.
So, who are you gonna take to the dance? I think I'll just go on my own, so I can concentrate on playing cupid to miss park and Mr.
Jameson.
But it's Valentine's day.
I don't even know who I'd invite.
Duh, Jimmy.
You like him.
Yes, but I don't think he likes me the way I like him.
What do you mean? I feel we've had a bunch of chances where something romantic could have happened, and it didn't, and every time I try to make something happen, it just makes him all nervous and uncomfortable.
Well, you could always invite him to the dance as a friend.
You think? Sure.
Then, once he gets comfortable hanging out with you a lot He'll wanna be more than friends.
Exactly.
Exactly.
It's ingenious.
I'll just have to be super clear we're friends, so I don't scare him away.
Baby I'm so happy to see ya I want to explode just like fire and ice you're gonna wanna punch that last part.
Fire and ice! I don't know, Jimmy.
Trust me.
Fire and ice! I just think I should do something more from my heart.
Well, that would be another way to go.
I just have so many feelings for Lulu that I wanna express.
Tell me about it.
You like Lulu, too? No, someone else.
Whew.
That's a big relief.
I mean, don't take this the wrong way, but you're super good-looking.
So who do you like? It doesn't matter.
I don't think anything's gonna happen there anyway.
Why not? I don't know.
I think she sees me more as a friend.
Come on, tell me who it is.
It's True.
Whoa.
I really like her.
I just I don't know if she feels the same way about me.
You should tell her.
No, no way.
If you have feelings for her, you gotta let her know.
Otherwise they'll just sit inside you and fester.
Like fire and ice.
Exactly.
You know what? You're right.
I'm gonna tell her, right now.
Hey.
Hey there, we were just talking about you.
No, we weren't.
Oh, I was just wondering if you wanna come to our school dance with me as friends.
Nothing romantic about it at all.
Uh, okay.
We'll be like two buds at a b-ball game, just hanging out, eating hotdogs, burping.
So we'll be going as friends? Totally.
Friends, nothing more.
Great.
Okay.
I'll catch up with you later.
I think that went well, don't you? Who are those for? Who do you think? She's been sending herself flowers all day.
From brock champion? Peru's greatest shortstop.
I feel so bad.
This must be costing Amanda a fortune.
I wonder what she's trying to prove.
More flowers? Goodness, brock is really laying it on thick, isn't he? Somebody's laying it on thick.
I'll admit, I had some doubts about brock.
A peruvian baseball scout with a suitcase full of money, it almost sounded like a panicky excuse to get out of a relationship.
Almost? But now with this massive outpouring of affection, there's no way anyone can doubt his strong feelings for me.
She's nuts.
Mikey J's not at home.
His mom said he was coming over here.
I'm sure everything is fine.
What if I never see him again?! Lulu.
Sorry.
Put on a fresh pot, we're working late tonight.
You don't work here or drink coffee.
Very good then.
All right, it's all set up.
If we move the science fair junk to the side, we have the gym from 6:00 to 9:00.
Miss park and Mr.
Jameson will be chaperoning, and principal ruckman is $15 richer.
$15? I thought you were offering him one.
Yeah, the man drives a pretty hard bargain.
But I got him to throw in his desk lamp and a ride to the dance, heh heh.
Thanks for coming to the dance with me, pal.
No problem, bud.
Why don't I hang up your coat? That'd be great, amigo.
Hey, Jimmy, how's it going? I heard you were coming with True.
That's good, right? No, she's made it pretty clear she just wants to be friends.
She keeps calling me "pal" and "buddy," and she's punched me in the arm so many times, I think it's gonna fall off.
Well, hang in there.
What did I just say? Sorry.
I'm just a little nervous about my song.
I don't really know how it works.
Don't worry.
I'll be right behind you on drums.
If I sense it's getting boring, I'll kick into a wicked solo.
Cool.
Great dance, huh? Why did principal ruckman drive us here? Because he's my personal chauffeur.
Pretty impressive, huh? It would have been more impressive if he didn't spend the entire ride lecturing about the dangers of firecrackers.
Hors d'oeuvres? Dj snazzy Jason in the house.
Now, here's one from eban and the schletters.
I love this song.
You wanna dance? Not really.
I broke my ankle.
When? This morning.
You broke your ankle this morning? That's right.
I'm freaking out.
I can't find Mikey J anywhere.
Where have you looked? Pretty much right here and the girls' bathroom.
You might wanna broaden your search before we call in the FBI.
Okay, well, it's just that it's Valentine's day, and I've barely seen him at all.
I'm sure everything is fine.
The bigger question is how are we gonna get.
Mr.
jameson and miss park together? Where are they? That's the problem.
He's right here and she's over there.
Aha, but what's in between? A punch bowl.
Ah, good thinking, Lulu.
You take miss park, I'll work on Mr.
Jameson.
Hey, True.
Not now, buddy.
I'm trying to create a little romance.
Hey, Mr.
jameson.
Oh, hi, True.
Boy, this is some music you kids listen to, very peppy.
Sort of makes you thirsty, huh? Thirsty? Yes, for juice.
Like at the punch bowl over there.
Now, are you thirsty? Here goes nothin'.
Hi.
Hi.
Don't they usually give you a cast? Who? The hospital, when you break your ankle? Oh, yeah, they ran out.
What kind of hospital runs out of casts? You know, I'm starting to get this feeling like you don't believe me.
I don't.
Yeah, there it is again.
Let me ask you this, smart guy, how do you explain my horrible limp? What limp? I didn't come here to be insulted.
Or to dance.
I think we're in business.
Mr.
jameson's explaining the molecular breakdown of punch and she doesn't even seem bored.
I'm bored, just hearing you mention it secondhand.
What's going on with you and Jimmy? Everything is going perfectly.
I don't think he suspects I like him at all.
When we're boyfriend and girlfriend, he's gonna be so surprised.
Meanwhile, I have a boyfriend I haven't seen since homeroom.
Can I have everyone's attention? There he is.
Hey, everybody.
I'm Mikey J, and this is my friend Jimmy.
Fire and ice.
I wanna sing a song for the most beautiful girl in the building.
And by building, I mean the world.
This is for you, Lulu.
Whenever I feel like the world's full of jerks and you don't know how it works I think of life's perks like your smile like your smile! Kelsey.
Can you give me a minute? Dana was just telling me her five favorite spices.
Did I say salt? Yes.
Well, I won't keep you.
Um, I just wanted you to know that this whole unrequited love thing isn't working for me.
I like you.
I have always liked you.
But if you're not gonna like me back, then today's the day I walk away.
Okay, I think I have my answer.
Did I say salt? Yes.
Psst, Ryan.
Who said that? Over here.
There's not enough lights on me.
I'm rocking the house and no one knows it.
Do me a favor and plug in some of those cords.
I'm on it.
Let there be lights.
Whoa, cool sound, ha ha.
Did you hear that? Yes, but I was trying to be polite and ignore it.
No, that low rumbling.
That's the sound of the mega-volcano display 5000.
The unit has been triggered.
What does that mean? It means she's gonna blow.
Aah! Happy Valentine's day.
So what did you get me? That song was your present.
I was kinda hoping that I'm just kidding.
It was beautiful.
You saved me.
Oh, it was nothing, really.
Well, it meant a lot to me.
Thank you.
You know, I couldn't help but notice, you're very light on your feet.
Are you a dancer? You flatter me.
I studied ballet as a child, but now I'm lucky to get to a flamenco class every once in a while.
You're a flamenco dancer, too? Why, are you? I've studied for 20 years.
You saved my life.
No I didn't.
I just got here.
You were giving me mouth to mouth.
No, I that was moose.
Moose is visiting his grandmother in Florida.
The other moose.
Ha, you like me! No, I don't.
Yes, you do.
Jimmy.
I'm sorry about that.
I shouldn't be jumping into your arms like that.
It's okay.
It's not okay.
I mean, we're just friends.
True.
Yes? I don't wanna be just friends.
Oh.
More? Amanda, you don't have to do this.
Do what? Pretend that brock sent you all these flowers.
Brock did send me these flowers.
Well, except for the first batch, which I sent to myself.
Peruvian baseball team? How dare you? Now, go downstairs and see if my car is ready.
Brock.
Amanda, I've missed you.
Our 19 glorious days together were the best in my life.
I don't care if the lima llamas are two games from winning the world series of Peru, I had to see you.
I don't know what to say.
Don't say anything.
I'm taking you to every restaurant in the city tonight and tomorrow, every museum.
It'll take me 15 minutes to get my things together.
I'll wait downstairs with mother.
St coming back to get my diary.
I've got a lot of writing to do.
Wow, pretty flowers.
Who are those from? Brock champion.
Amanda, it's okay.
We kinda know you sent them to yourself.
Oh, only the first ones.
The rest are from brock.
He's here, you know, waiting for me in the lobby.
We were just in the lobby.
And I thought he was in Peru, playing baseball.
He was.
She's nuts.
Oh, and Amanda, I forgot to tell you, I wanna marry you.
