Ice Princess

Synopsis: A high-school bookworm transforms into a swan. Brainy Casey Carlyle has never quite fit in. Caught between her fantasy of becoming a championship figure skater and her strong-willed mother, who has her on the fast track to Harvard, she can only hope to be like Nikki, Tiffany and Gen--three elite skating prodigies who are ruthlessly competing on the US National circuit (and have attitudes to match). But when Casey gets the chance to train with Gen and her coach, a disgraced former skating champion who also happens to be Gen's mother, she must dash her own mother's hopes in order to pursue her dream. Now, with only the support of Gen's teenage brother, a hunky Zamboni driver, Casey takes on the challenge of her life when she finds herself competing against the best to make it into the championship circuit and become a real "ice princess."

[# Aly and AJ:
No One]

# I am moving through the crowd

# Trying to find myself

# Feel like a guitar

that's never played

# Will someone strum away?

# And I ask myself

# Who do I wanna be?

# Do I wanna throw away the key

# And invent a whole

new meaning to myself?

- # No one

- # Don't wanna be

# No one but me

# You are moving through the crowd

# Trying to find yourself

# Feeling like a doll left on a shelf

# Will someone take you down?

# And you ask yourself

# Who do I wanna be?

# Do I wanna throw away the key

# And invent a whole new me?

# Gotta tell yourself

- # No one

- # Don't wanna be

# No one but me

# Your life plays out

on the shadows on the wall

# Turn the light on to release it all

# You wonder what it's like

to not feel worthless

# So open all the blinds

# And draw the curtains

- # No one

- # Don't wanna be

# No one but me #

Casey?

- Something wrong, Mr. Bast?

- No, not at all.

I was curious if you'd

started weighing college options.

Options? Uh...

Heard of the Helen Stoller

Physics Scholarship?

No.

It's given to a student from this state

who shows most promise in science.

Wouldn't that be Ann or... Wyatt?

No, it's you.

You have a calling, Casey.

I do?

- What is it?

- Physics.

Toast?

- Uh... sure.

- You're very lucky.

Most people search their

whole lives for their calling.

- How do you know you have a calling?

- Your brilliant teacher tells you.

And of course your 1 1 straight A-pluses

on exams is a hint.

You'll need a letter from me

for the scholarship

and think about a special

physics project over the summer.

Something unusual but personal.

Let them know you a little.

- He says it's my calling.

- QED.

How is this "quite easily demonstrated"?

You're as good in physics as I am.

Not even close. I grind, you glide.

Event horizon.

One day that guy will wake up

and realize he needs a math tutor.

And that tutor will be me.

Figure out how to get us invited to

even one party and you win the Nobel.

Hey, you're Casey, right?

Uh-huh.

Here's an invite

to my boyfriend's party.

Wow.

You're in chem lab

with Julian Wilson, right?

- Mm-hm.

- Can you give that to him?

Thanks.

That was way inconsiderate.

I love Mr. Bast.

If he uncovered a scholarship

I didn't know about, he's a genius.

And to think they pay him

almost nothing.

The devaluation of teachers

in our society, it just...

- It blows my mind.

- Mom.

I'm back. Sorry.

I have to figure out

what he wants from me.

I mean, what is

a personal science project?

Isn't the nature of science supposed

to be completely unbiased and factual?

Now he wants the inner me, too?

The whole secret of the study of nature

lies in learning how to use one's eyes.

- You know who said that?

- I'm guessing it was a woman.

That was written by George Sand,

a woman forced to use a man's name

because she couldn't get published.

- Mom.

- Okay.

Anyway, I always tell my students,

"You'll know your topic

when you learn how to use your eyes."

[TV:
classical music]

Oh! Oh, no...

She had it locked up.

I need to eat ice cream and all

your mother has is leftover tofu.

- Can we go?

- Sh! Sh!

Look at that recovery! Amazing.

She'll still place.

She's so precise.

I mean, down to the last...

You know...

I bet there is

an exact aerodynamic formula.

[# Jewel:
Doin' Fine]

# We are

# What everyone wants to be

# We are young and carefree

# Life's a breeze

for people like you and me

# If you look

# Life lays out just like a road

# It's for us to grab a hold

# There's no one can tell us no

# We're alive
