each other for the

big scholarship,

favorites are Gaby.

- Ah, excuse me, this studio

is all about teamwork okay?

We just have to put our

best talent out there.

- Well maybe if you featured

my daughter you'd see

how talented she is.

What am I paying you for?

- Yeah why am I paying

you these big bucks?

What happened to Jackson's solo?

- Well maybe because you

need to pay me bigger bucks

because he needs a lot of work.

- Well we can't all buy our

way through life can we?

Jackson is clearly the best

male dancer in the class.

- He's the only male

dancer in the class.

- That's besides the point.

- Maybe if Jackson showed up

to rehearsal they would've had

that pas de deux locked.

- I told you about

his ibs problem.

- Well that's actually

not what you told me,

you said it was because

susie dances like she has

two left feet and one

of them is a club.

my daughter that way.

- Well don't talk

about Jackson that way.

done with this okay?

I'm done with this,

I'm pulling him out.

Jackson get your bag, let's go.

We're gonna take our

business elsewhere,

this face again.

- Well that was awkward.

- Jeanette can you please

move your big black tank?

- Okay

kids, parties over.

Well done good job everybody.

- Mom, mom, um have you

maybe, I don't know,

thought of getting a new car?

- Really Mel?

That's pretty materialistic.

You know perfectly well we

cannot afford a new car.

- I'm just worried about

you driving this old thing,

I mean you could break down

after work or something,

and it's not reliable.

But you know what you

are the most reliable mom

in the entire universe.

- Oh, you know what my car

is just fine my darling girl.

And do you know what,

plus your mom is tough.

And triple a's only

a phone call away.

Just stay focused

on your studies,

school first, dance second.

- Dance first, school second.

- Uhuh, you know the rules,

you gotta keep your grades up.

You know I know that

this competition

seems like everything

but I don't want this audition

to over shadow your studies.

- Mom you know I'm gonna nail
