Fame (1982–1987): Season 1, Episode 12 - Exposé - full transcript

When Julie gets replaced by a mannequin in a production number, she feels unimportant until a reporter threatens to do an expose on her.

I'd like you to meet
the new Julie Miller.

That was my number. I'm not
gonna lose out to a mannequin.

♪ Got it all over most humans ♪♪

I'm going to your apartment to get
some background material on you.

And that's all?

It's easy to fall under the
spell of these kids, Jeff.

You and I have
had our differences,

but the one thing I used to be able to say
about you is, you could mind your own business.

Slower, slower.

Inhale. Exhale.
Come on, Mom, slow.

Inhale. That's it.

That's right, relax. Exhale.

That's right. [Exhales]

I'm okay now. Of course you are.

There's nothing so
scary about job hunting.

[Panting]

Look, Mom, you only hyperventilate
when things are going badly.

This is something good.

Miss Grant says she'll probably
be able to help you find a job.

But... But Miss Grant
has better things to do...

than offer job counseling to
one of her student's mothers.

She wants to help you out. It's
what she does all the time for the kids.

But, Julie, I am
not one of the kids.

That's why I think this is
some kind of imposition.

Look, Mom, can we debate
this on the way to school?

I've got a rehearsal, and I'm gonna
be late unless we get a move on.

You go ahead. I'll be along.

Are you sure you're
not going to chicken out?

So I'll be late for
one rehearsal.

That's no big deal.

Where's Miller? I did not get up before I
was barely asleep to be told to hang out.

A featured performer
does not hang out.

Doris, lighten up.

No. If you let these things
slide, they get to be habit-forming.

And so does this.

Look, you leavin' ain't
gonna make things any better.

Yes, it will. Trust me.

What's with her? She thinks she's
the only one that's got to get up?

Some people wake
up better than others.

Mornings are to Doris
what the polka is to Leroy.

Hold up, hold up. You mean to tell
me I came in here early for nothin'?

No. I get to try on your
headphones. Come on, man, chill out.

You want private sounds,
you buy your own cassette.

People, we came here to
rehearse. We are rehearsing.

I'm getting cues. So cue me. Tell
me, where can I get these things cheap?

Here. Hold it!

You wanted to rehearse?

I'd like you to meet
the new Julie Miller.

- [All Laughing]
- You think this is a joke?

This is not a joke.
I am dead serious.

She was gonna play the part of a mannequin
anyway. Might as well use the real thing.

- She's gonna have a fit
if you do that.
- No, wait. Maybe it will work.

Listen, we have to rehearse.
That's the important thing.

Y'all tell her. I don't wanna
have no part in that conversation.

I'll tell her. She'll
understand.

- She's an adult.
- If she's an adult,
what's she doin' here?

If we're not gonna get
anything accomplished...

Yeah, come on. Let's play
the music. Let's do it. Come on!

Daryl! Daryl! [Hisses]

But that worked!
I think it was fine!

Yeah, it wasn't bad.
It was kinda different.

I don't know.

I gotta go to the bathroom!

[All Laughing]

So, what did you think,
huh? It was fantastic.

Unfortunately, it was
terrific. What's that mean?

Well, if you think that conversation
with Julie's gonna be tough...

when you tell her you replaced
her for rehearsal with a dress dummy,

imagine that conversation when
you tell her you replaced her, period.

With a dress dummy, period.

- Are you serious?
- It was better with a dress
dummy than with a human being.

Julie will absolutely plotz!

It's perfect! It's perfect!
[Chattering, Laughing]

Julie's not here either.
She's probably sick.

When she hears about her
replacement, she'll be terminal.

May I have your
attention, please.

Who is he?

That's curiosity, Leroy.
I asked for attention.

Would you join us,
Mr. Harris, please?

Class, I'd like to
introduce Mr. Jeffrey Harris.

Hi.

Yeah, but who is he?

I'll tell ya, Leroy.

I'm that lower form of humanity
known as a student teacher.

[Laughing]

I'm sorry, Miss Sherwood.
Look, I can explain. After class.

Mr. Harris is a
graduate student.

He'll be assisting me for a
few weeks. Any questions?

You will notice, Mr. Harris,

that when one asks for
attention one often gets questions,

and when one asks for
questions, one gets... nothing.

- I like surprises.
- [Class Laughs]

Now, let me see.

I should have something
in here that applies...

to someone who's
not still in school.

Meaning someone my age?

No.

Meaning someone who's
not still in school, period.

I sure hope you don't come on
like that to would-be employers,

putting yourself down
before they get a chance to.

Uh, I might,

if I ever get a chance to
face a would-be employer.

Ah. That's a no-no, isn't it?

Yeah. And so is
baby talk like "no-no."

Maybe this was a bad idea.

Mrs. Miller, let me
decide that, okay?

It's just that I haven't
done anything...

except be a mother to Julie
and a wife to my husband.

Till I sorta got
fired off that job too.

Well, what about volunteer work?

Hobbies? Personal interests?

- Do they count?
- Sure they do,
if they're all you have.

Well, then, I guess they count.

Fill this out for me, okay?

- A mannequin?
- Look, Julie.

Losing a part, that kinda thing
happens in show business all the time.

John Wilkes Booth hardly worked
at all towards the end of his career.

That was my number! I'm not
gonna lose out to a mannequin!

Julie, the number
works better this way.

Okay. Okay. I'm sorry I was
late. It couldn't be helped.

- You don't have to
punish me for it!
- That's not what's happening.

- It's nothing personal
towards you.
- Isn't it?

How come you weren't
replaced? Or you?

Because we showed up on time.

[Clapping, Cheering]

This seat taken?

- No.
- It is now.

I was beginning to think I was
gonna have to eat with the teachers.

You make that sound terrible. No, it's not
terrible, if you happen to like teachers.

That's some attitude for
someone who's gonna be a teacher.

[Chuckles] Don't you
wanna be a teacher?

Let's just say I'm not
exactly obsessed with it.

If that's so, then why do it?

Do you get to do
everything you want to do?

No. Not always. Well,
maybe we ought to start a club.

The "We'll be happy even if we
can't do everything we wanna do" club.

Two members. You and me. Okay.

Ah, we have a quorum. Any
old business? Any new business?

Any ideas for a
secret handshake?

Any reason why cafeteria
food always has to look like this?

Mmm.

Don't worry.

As soon as your mother
returns the questionnaire,

I'll figure out
where to send it.

Oh, thanks a lot, Miss Grant. I
really appreciate your helping her.

She's so timid about
all this. I don't see why.

New York is just like Grand Rapids...
just bigger, noisier and more terrifying.

Tell me about it. You don't
look terrified. You look happy.

- I do?
- In fact, you look
positively radiant.

Thank you. Excuse
me, Miss Grant.

I gotta run. I promised
Mr. Harris a tour of the place.

Thanks again.

Girl, what do you
think about that?

I think just what you think.

So, what's the verdict after
one day in the trenches?

Fascinating, confusing,

fascinating, scary
and fascinating.

It's easy to fall under the
spell of these kids, Jeff.

That's what makes teaching
here all the more difficult.

Take Julie Miller.

What about her?

You'll be reading some
of her compositions.

They're beautiful.
As beautiful as she is.

They make me remember
what it was like to be 17...

So tentative, vulnerable.

I've noticed that about Julie.

- Really?
- Yeah. We had lunch together,

and she gave me a
walk-around tour of the place.

Okay. I'm glad you said that.
Now we can get right down to cases.

Sit down.

I don't know what they tell you
in education classes these days,

but I know how it works here.

It's a thin line we have
to draw with these kids.

We have to care,
to listen, to teach.

But we can't
step over that line.

It can't become personal.

Did I give the
impression that it was?

I don't give this mini-lecture
unless I think it might be required.

[Exhales] Whoa. I'm sorry.

I should have realized you
couldn't know what I was doing.

Which was?

Education was not my
first major in college.

Journalism, yes?

I check up on the people
I'm going to be working with.

Well, I just thought there might
be a way to combine the two.

How?

I'd like to do an article
about the school. Oh?

For a newspaper or...

Well, I'll hit some of the little
magazines I sold to as an undergrad.

Publicity couldn't
hurt a place like this.

What does Julie Miller
have to do with this?

I want to write it from her point of view...
the Grand Rapids girl in the Big Apple.

Has she agreed to
it? She loves the idea.

Okay.

Sorry. Wrong lecture.

- An article about me?
- Yeah.

Well, from your point of view.

- I don't know.
- Well, why not?

Some of the older kids, they could
tell you a lot more about the school.

I've thought about that, but I want the readers
to learn about the school just the way you did.

Besides, you have to do it.

I told Miss Sherwood
you'd already agreed.

- But you didn't even ask me.
- So I'm asking you now.

How'd you like us to spend lots of time together
without people looking at us cross-eyed?

Unless, of course, you can't stand to
hang out with someone of my generation.

Yeah. I can stand it.

[Laughing] [Bell Rings]

[Sherwood] You'll return to work
tomorrow. Creative writing in class.

Bring pencils. No excuses.

Julie, can we work during lunch?

Sure, Mr. Harris.

How's the article developing?

Oh, it's really coming
together, Miss Sherwood.

So's your teaching.

Hey, that's great.

Not too bad. Yeah.

You know, Mr. Chips was
one of my favorite movies,

but I wonder if we could drop some of the
teacher-student stuff between you and me.

Such as? Forget the "mister."

Me Jeff, you Julie. Sure.

You told me when
you first came here...

you thought your father was
right to stay in Grand Rapids,

and you and your mom
were wrong in coming here.

Yeah. I did think that then.

But I didn't realize
what this school was.

I didn't even think
I could fit in here.

But I can, and I do.

And I'm glad.

"Craft counselor
in a summer camp.

Decorations chairwoman
for the P.T.A." Oh, that's good.

"Luncheon coordinator
for your golf club?"

Well, that's pretty
creative, in its own way.

Edward had another name for
me. He called me a dilettante.

[Laughs] I bet you never
had that problem, did you?

I bet you never flitted around
looking for something to do.

Who? Girl, I had to find something quick,
or else there'd be no me left to do it with.

Me too now.

But dancing isn't just
"something to do" is it?

It means much
more than that to you.

True.

Well, see, I never had that.

Julie's growing, she needs me
less and less with each passing day,

and, frankly, I'm
scared and lonely...

and a whole bunch of
things, none of 'em good.

That's exactly what we're gonna
change, Mrs. Miller, starting now.

Why are you spending
all this extra time with me?

Because you're worth it.

And once you believe that, you're not gonna
need me or anybody else to help you out.

Now, let's figure
out your schedule.

♪♪ [Electric Piano]

Hold it. Hold it,
everybody. ♪♪ [Stops]

- You want something?
- I'd just like to watch.

Mr. Harris, teachers aren't
supposed to watch rehearsals.

They're kinda supposed to
let us sink or swim on our own.

- Don't you wanna be written up
in a magazine article?
- What kind of a magazine?

Well, I'm not sure yet.

But somebody'll be
interested enough to publish it.

Well, I'm sorta the
star of this number,

and if you wanna know how
my name is spelled, it's L-E-R...

Uh, Leroy, let's just let the
man watch the rehearsal.

We can figure out
your billing later.

[Students Laugh] Right.

Just forget I'm here.

All right, y'all. Let's
take it from the break.

A five, a six, a five,
six, seven, eight!

♪♪ [Resumes]

Look, it might
be old hat to you,

but to someone like me who's never seen a
number put together before, it was a trip.

Yeah, I suppose so.

It's just that particular
number, it's not my kind of thing.

What I'd really like is to take a tour of your
old high school... kind of a study in contrasts.

But I don't think the subway
goes to Grand Rapids.

No, but I'd be willing to bet you brought
your old yearbook with you to New York.

As a matter of fact, I'll bet you
were on the yearbook committee.

You mean it shows?
Assistant editor, right?

No. I sold ads.

Actually, I sold
one ad to my father.

Well, show it to me.

At my apartment?

Yeah. I don't know.

Look, Julie,
what's the big deal?

I'm going to your apartment to get
some background material on you.

And that's all?

And...

because I don't wanna wait
until tomorrow to see you again.

Oh, no! You can't look at this!

That seems like a
million years ago.

It was another world back
there. Yeah... Well, yes and no.

People in Grand Rapids were
always warning Mom and me...

about how rude and cold New York
was going to be, but it's not like that.

And the other thing
is, kids in school...

They always say how out of touch
and square everyone is in the Midwest.

That's not true either.

But I don't think
they believe me.

How could anyone
not believe you?

Can I ask you a question? Sure.

I've asked enough of you.

Why are you teaching if what
you really want to be is a journalist?

[Chuckles] W-Well,
teaching is steadier.

It's less risky, and...

[Clears Throat] And what?

And there's a part of me...

that's afraid I'm not quite good
enough to cut it as a journalist.

Hey, welcome to the club.

You know, everyone in
the school has some of that.

Wondering whether or not we
have something special inside.

That just comes
with the territory.

Say no, and I'm gone.

I wasn't sure if I should cough
or throw cold water on you.

I didn't expect you back so
soon. This is Mr. Harris. What?

"Mister"? You're not on a
first name basis, at least?

Well, he's a teacher
at the school...

Well, actually, I'm
just a student teacher.

No, you're not, Mr. Harris...
Not after I call the school.

I'm really sorry Miss Grant
didn't have any job leads for you.

But she's gonna keep
trying, right, Mom?

Maybe I'll make us some tea.

I don't want any tea, thank you.

How long's this gonna go on?

- What?
- The silent treatment.

Julie, you told me
about the article.

Okay, I take that
into consideration.

You tell me it's
a first-time thing.

Okay, I'll hold off
calling the school.

But if you expect me to be delighted
or outgoing about the whole thing,

I think that's
expecting a bit much.

Mom, nothing happened between
Jeff and me, and nothing will.

But there's something
you ought to know.

He's the first guy I've met since we
left Grand Rapids that I really care about.

I hope you don't take
that away from me too.

Mr. Shorofsky, you're a
musical person. I like to think so.

Then you can't pass up the best buy
ever made by a musical person, can you?

I have a strong feeling I
can do just that, quite easily.

Without even
listening to what it is?

You have exactly one
minute and 43 seconds.

This place that sells
radios, stereos, stuff like that,

they're having a
two-for-one sale.

On what? Or am I
gonna be sorry I asked?

On a portable cassette player.

With the funny little
earphones? Yeah, that's it.

I could swing half the
price on one if you'd...

Music is meant to be enjoyed
by everyone, Mr. Amatullo.

It is not something one
uses to tune out the world...

while one tunes in on bad
music and, worse, ball games.

It is also not something one uses
to avoid listening to one's teachers...

or learning one's schoolwork.

Mr. Cobb! Over here.

Listen, I wanna thank you
for coming. No problem.

Have a seat, please. Thanks.

Close, but no cigar.

You're kidding.

Jeff, two years ago
I would've bought it.

It's clear, concise,
interesting.

Yeah, and that's
no longer in style?

- Right.
- What are you talking about?

I'm talking about my
magazine having a new owner...

who has a philosophy
about our readership.

They want short
words, simple ideas...

served up with a
little flesh and scandal.

That's not the way
you used to operate.

Things change. Life goes on.

You tell me I sold
out, I'll have to agree.

And I'll also have to add,
I got a hell of a good price.

Sorry, my friend.

Look, I wanna wish you the best
of luck with this teaching thing.

David, wait a minute, please.

Look, this teaching thing might
turn out to be short-term for me.

I think I can deliver what you
want. I'd like to take another shot at it.

Okay. Great.

Just as long as you
understand what we're lookin' for.

Short words, simple
ideas, flesh and scandal.

Have fun. Talk to you soon.

It's the newest thing. It's kinda
the pirate look meets the sweat suit.

Looks like Donald Duck meets
the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

You think I made that up? That is a
direct quote from Glamour East magazine.

Do you hate it? Well,
does it come in lavender?

No, no. Lavender's dead wrong.

Hey, you're not
wearing it. Coco is.

Not unless it's
lavender, I'm not.

What do you think, Mr. Harris?

- I guess Coco should have
the color she wants.
- I won't wear it if it's...

Coco, if I return it once
my mother figures it's okay.

She figured I inherited it, my not
being able to make up my mind.

But more than once and
she's gonna get suspicious.

Suspicious about what?

Come on. What's
she talking about?

- Well, you see sometimes...
- Doris, dummy up.

- Hey, I'm not gonna use it. I'm just curious, that's all.
- See, sometimes...

- Doris...
- You better let her tell. She'll explode if you don't.

Are you saying you have
to buy your own costumes?

What buy? We use a credit card.

You have a credit card? No. I
have a mother who has a credit card.

So you buy the costume, use
it in the show and then return it.

[Clicks Tongue]

I admire your ingenuity.

If we didn't do
stuff with ingenuity,

the only play we'd be able to
do around here is Oh, Calcutta!

Hey, look, we got time for one
more rehearsal. Let's not blow it.

Okay.

Mr. Harris, you interested in a
great bargain? Danny, come on!

One, two, three, four.

[Chattering]

I talked to my mother last
night. Julie, not here. Okay?

Everything's gonna be all right. She's not exactly
thrilled, but everything's gonna be all right.

It was a really long session. We'll get together
after school and I'll fill you in then. Okay?

Thank you, Miss Miller.

Now take your seat, please.

Julie, what are you
doing after school?

I'm not sure. Why?

I thought you'd like
to see the number.

Kind of rubbing my
nose in it, aren't you?

No, I want you to see
that the number is better...

and that we weren't picking
on you or punishing you.

Oh, well, I can't.

I've some stuff to
do with the article.

And the article writer?

Yeah, he's doing it
from my point of view.

I bet he is. [Bell Ringing]

Coco, you and I have
had our differences,

but the one thing I used to be able to say
about you is, you could mind your own business.

Now, if you've taken
up sleaze as a hob...

Mr. Harris, when you're ready.

Okay. Time out for education.

[Students Chuckle]

Now, yesterday we were talking
about the tools of journalism,

which are...

[All] Truth, clarity
and the facts.

I am so proud of you,
I can't see straight.

And the best part is,
you got it all on your own.

What are you tryin' to do, put me
out of a job as a career counselor?

[Both Laughing]
Don't you try it!

Come in here and
tell me about it.

Good afternoon,
Mr. Shorofsky. Hi.

You know the coffee they
talk about on radio and TV?

The stuff the man did not buy because
it wasn't good enough? Mm-hmm.

Somebody bought it.

Mr. Harris,

has Danny Amatullo mentioned anything
about a sale on cassette players to you?

- Yeah, he said something about...
- Did you agree to buy it?

No.

Well, I'm sure he'll
find his way back to me.

Yeah, is Mr. Cobb in
for Jeff Harris, please?

At first I was there just to apply for
the hostess job at his coffee shop.

Mm-hmm. Showing people
to tables, that kind of thing.

But I guess he saw something in me because he
decided to try me out as a kind of collector.

You mean, like for unpaid
bills? Oh, no, no, no.

Going around to other bars and
restaurants he has contacts with...

and picking up... I don't
know, receipts and things.

Um, Charlotte, dear,

I think you'd better tell me
more about this job of yours.

Mr. Shorofsky, have
you seen Jeff Harris?

Faculty lounge. Thank you.

A numbers runner?

They thought I looked like someone
who could be a numbers runner?

No. They thought you looked like the last person
in the world who would be a numbers runner.

That's why they picked you.

I feel so...

I am so dumb!

Charlotte... Oh, damn!

Okay, then, try this.

There's a credit card scam for
ripping off department stores.

They use the credit card
thing to get costumes...

And some of the costumes
would knock your socks off...

Yeah, yeah. Photo
opportunity. Correct.

I think we could build a case for some
racial tension between some of the students.

Drugs?

That's something I didn't get into, but it's
safe to say there must be some drugs around.

There is in every other
school I ever heard about.

I mean, the angle is,

these artsy-craftsy kids are
tripping out on the taxpayers' money...

while the rest of us go
to hell in a handbasket...

Baby.

♪♪ [TV: Eerie Organ]
[TV: Thunder Rumbling]

[TV: Door Creaking]

Are you really into whatever
that is, or can we talk for a minute?

[TV: Off] No, not really.

But I don't think I'm much
good for talking either.

Certainly not about Jeff, or me
being on the outs with the other kids.

I sorta had something
else in mind,

but I suppose it's
related in a way.

- Your job hunting?
- Also related, but no.

Then what?

Julie, I think it's
time you and I...

started to consider some,
uh, unpleasant realities.

We're both terribly unhappy,

and maybe we ought to
consider the possibility...

that this really isn't
the place for us,

and we oughta think
about going home.

Back to Grand Rapids?

Just something to think about.

I know you're not
into performing,

so why do I have the feeling I'm
about to hear a song and dance?

No.

No way.

What you are going to
hear is the straight dope.

This whole place runs
on one thing... ambition.

Wanting the spotlight.

If you understand that,

then you can understand
that an ambitious person...

has to do things that he or
she isn't always thrilled about.

That's my situation.

I'm going to have to hype this
piece in order to get it published,

and that's what I'm going to do.

If that doesn't mesh with some
romantic fantasies you've got about life,

so be it.

Regardless of who it hurts?

This place is nothing but young people,
Julie. They bounce back real quick.

♪♪ [Cello]

Am I interrupting something?

Not the way I was just playing.

Here. Hey, what's this?

It's a peace offering.

Bruno, I didn't know we
were mad at each other.

Oh, we're not.
Well, not you and I.

Just you and Coco and Leroy and
Doris and this whole mannequin thing.

It's breaking up that
old gang of mine.

Makes a nice song
title, but a lousy lifestyle.

What piece is this?

It's a poem you wrote for Sherwood's
class a couple of months ago.

I bet you didn't know
you could write lyrics, huh?

- I've got chemistry next hour. Let me know what you think.
- Bruno, I'm not a singer.

Don't be silly. Up until 30 seconds
ago, you weren't a lyricist either.

Ciao.

Julie, did your mother recover
from her little adventure yesterday?

- No.
- Tell her
I'll call her tonight.

I'm not gonna let a little
thing like that get her down.

[Grunts] I'm sorry,
Mr. Shorofsky.

Beg your pardon? I said I'm
sorry for bumping into you!

No problem. World Series.

You like baseball?

What baseball? The New York
Philharmonic versus the London Symphony.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

[Rings]

Hello?

Julie, why aren't you in
school? What's wrong?

I'm fine, Mom,
really. I am in school.

I gotta talk to you before you do
something rash, like canceling the lease.

You haven't, have you? 'Cause if
you have, you still have time to stop it.

Julie, slow down. I can't
understand a word you're saying.

I can't leave New
York. I just can't leave.

And you can't either. I'm
not gonna let you just give up.

- Honey, we'll talk about it
when you calm down.
- Well, I'm not gonna calm down.

I'm in love. I'm really in love.

- After what you said he was
gonna do in the article?
- I don't mean Jeff.

I don't care about him.

I'm in love with this place,

with this dirty,
grimy, loud city.

Mom,

I'm in love with people that
dance with dress mannequins.

Give me everything you've done so far and
forget about sending it into the magazine.

Because if you do,

there's going to be a letter
to the editor a week later...

telling how you hit upon a certain female
student in order to get some of that information.

They don't print
anonymous letters.

It won't be anonymous.

I guarantee you.

You wouldn't do that.

You told me this place runs
on ambition. Well, that's true.

But it also runs on people knowing what they
want and being willing to pay the price.

If the price that I have to pay is my
reputation getting scuffed up a little...

I'll pay it.

That's all.

Julie, you haven't got the guts.

Try me.

Mr. Harris?

Well, I've got some...

papers here to...

return to you.

Pretty good, most of them.

For example,

Montgomery,

here's the Atlantic
Monthly piece you turned in.

Terrific stuff.

Martelli,

the Rolling Stone column could
have been lifted from the magazine,

it was so exact.

That's because it was lifted from
the magazine. [Students Laugh]

Miss Miller,

here's your version of the
New York Times book reviews.

And here's the
research material...

you handed in with it.

I must say, I was surprised
by the strength in your work.

It was very mature.

If it was mature, I'm surprised
you could understand it,

especially since I didn't
hand in any research material.
