[In Tori's house]
Tori: Alright, let's see. The bread mold...
Ian: Bread mold.
Tori: Next, the fish mold.
Ian: Fish mold.
Trina: I am so upset! You won't believe who I got partnered with for the big showcase.
Trina: Andrew Harris! A tenth grader!
Ian: What's the big showcase?
Tori: It's a performance they put on at her school every year -
Trina: They invite agents and directors and producers and other super powerful people in show business and is extremely important which is why I am so upset! And Good Bye!
Tori: Hey! He and I have a science project due to do tomorrow! I'll have to bring in my mold bush.
Trina: No! Andrew's coming over and I you got to help us figure out what to do for the big showcase! I definitely wanna sing! [plays piano] [sings off-key] How was that?
[door bell rings]
Trina: Ugh, he's here. [walks to the door] STAY! [opens door] Come in.
Trina: Tori, that's Andrew.
Andre: Andre. You go to Hollywood Arts too?
Tori: Oh, no. I'm not a performer. Just my sister.
Trina: Yup, I've got the talent and she got the strong teeth. [holds Tori's mouth] Ya know, she's never had one cavity?
Tori: I try not to brag about it.
Andre: [walks to piano] Oh, nice piano! [plays piano]
Tori: Oh my God, you're fantastic!
Trina: He's okay.
Andre: [sniffs Tori's hand]
Tori: Fish mold.
Andre: [let goes]
5 DAYS helping Trina and Andre rehearse. Trina's driving me INSANE!
[in Tori's backyard]
Andre: No, Grandma listen. There's no way you can drown at my school! You're not gonna fall in a toilet! What- Look, I gotta- I- I'LL CALL YOU LATER! [hangs up]
Tori: Your grandmother's gonna go to the Big Showcase?
Andre: Yeah, it's gonna be the first time she left her house in six years.
Andre: 'Cuz the woman's afraid of everything! People, umbrellas, Rabbis, bikinis, breakfast foods.
Tori: So if she saw a Rabbi in a bikini eating pancakes...
Andre: The woman would burst into flames.
Trina (offscreen): You guys, come on!
Tori: Back to rehearsal.
Andre: Let's go.
[in Tori's house]
Trina: (in a light blue dress) So? What do you think? [turns around] Fabulous, right?
Tori: You really need to wear that just to rehearse?
Trina: A performer needs to feel the part to be the part!
Tori: I thought we talked about not tapping my nose anymore.
Trina: [laughs] Okay, we got the comedy stuff down, so let's start with my song.
Andre: And by your song, I'm guessing you mean the song that I wrote.
Trina: No one cares who wrote the song! [laughs] Now, go.
[Andre plays first notes]
[Andre gets startled]
Trina: (off-key) You don't have to be afraid to put your dreams in action! You'll never gonna fade, (Tori: Trina?) you'll be the - WHAT?!
Tori: I-I think Andre was right! You should let him play the song in a faster tempo!
Trina: No, it has to be a power ballad! So, all the important people can hear my range! And vocal clarity!
Tori: But, I just think -
Trina: No, just take it from "When I make it shine."
[Andre plays notes]
Trina: (off-key) When I make it shine! (holds note) Well?
Andre: Do you have any aspirin?
[Tori gives a handful of aspirin]

Tori: Oh, hi! You're Andre's grandmother?
Charlotte: I don't know you! [hides]
Lane: [walks down the aisle] Excuse me, you're Trina's parents?
Mrs. Vega: Why?
Lane: Please come with me.
[Vegas' get out of seats]
[Charlotte peaks from the seats]
[In the backstage]
[Trina screams while her tongue swells]
Nurse Kotter: Just - just keep your mouth open!
