All of a sudden, the girls burst in from rehearsal saying how creepy the dance is and that Mackenzie gets ejected from the car. Christi: “what the hell kind of dance is this?” Paige is subdued, and it turns out that she is upset because her only role in the dance is to sit behind the wheel and pretend to be driving. She doesn’t even get to stand up. Well, she does get to pretend to kill them all in a crash, so there’s that.
Kelly tells her to deal with it and says Jabby is just doing it because Jabby’s a mean person. Holly asks Paige why she doesn’t go to Jabby and nicely tell her she would like to do more. Kelly says that SHE would say something to Jabby, but she knows that Jabby will throw things in her face. What things? Like changing Paige’s choreography, pulling Brooke and Paige’s solos at the last minute and storming out in the middle of rehearsal every week. Those things?
Anyway, Paige gathers her courage and asks Jabby for more dance responsibility. Jabby notes that she worked her butt off with Paige last week and Paige effed things up so the answer is “maybe.”
Christi works with Chloe on the solo choreography. She says she is worried because Chloe froze up on stage at NATIONALS last year and she doesn’t have a good track record with NATIONALS.
Christi tells Chloe she needs to give the dance some more emotion and she has to WANT to win. At NATIONALS.
The moms are relaxing in their corner or closet or whatever, when Gia walks in with her cell phone. She shows them a tweet from Crazy Apple Cathy that says “Can’t wait to beat your ass. XOXO.” Christi says this means it’s a whole new ball game now that the Apple’s will be there.
Bieber accepted my friend request!
Holly says the Apple’s will be hungry to win and Kelly notes that Jabby will now push the girls even more.
Okay, side note – why is “Millennium” blurred out in some shots, but not in others?
Anyway, Mackenzie rehearses her solo which a take-off on the infamous Bee Dance.
Jabby says the number is called “Honey Bee,” but Mackenzie is more of a killer bee. She is going to sting her competition. Commence a bunch of bee analogies ending with “if Vivi-Anne gets stung, I hope she’s not allergic to bees!” Whoa-ho-ho. And free Vivi!
Kelly watches Maddie’s solo rehearsal but says she can’t look at Paige because she will cry. She’s afraid that Paige thinks Jabby hates her and she is a terrible dancer. Kelly whispers to Melissa something about Paige sitting there, doing nothing. Jabby says to Maddie it’s hard to dance when the moms are ripping her to her face. Holly says that Kelly wasn’t saying anything about Maddie. Kelly says she’s mad that her daughter came 3,000 miles to do three steps. Jabby screams that she’s lucky to do those three steps. Kelly asks why, and Jabby says because Paige forgot her dance again at 11 years old. Jabby says Kelly needs to take Paige to the pediatrician to find out what’s wrong with her. Hey, that’s uncalled for! Even for Jabby.
