Michelle does more of that jazzy tap-dancing with the grownups, including Gypsy who is dressed awesome, and they are loudmouths at each other for a while. Three assorted Bunheads walk in wearing neckbraces and on crutches, but thank goodness it's Michelle who is teaching their class today, so they discard their medical devices.
Truly: "Here are the costumes for the Ginger Rogers dance, along with some assorted twitches and words."
Gypsy: "Wait, are you talking about the grocery store thing?"
Boo: "There's going to be an ATM! And stamps!"
Gypsy: "Sorry, no. We blocked them on a zoning technicality. We, of course, meaning the Association for the Preservation of Keeping It Real In Paradise."
Michelle: "Who am I to say what is and is not stupid on this show?"
Gypsy: "It's a mouthful, I know. We just shorten it to the T.A.Y.L.O.R. D.O.O.S.E."
Michelle: "Is it possible to reach back through time and make a person retroactively hate something they used to love?"
Gypsy: "Isn't this really just about coffee?"
Boo: "No, I am also adorable."
(She seriously is.)
Michelle: "We're not going down without a fight! They're not takin' Khaleesi's dragons!"
Is it really fan-service if you're mentioning the most obnoxious part of the entire show? Or is this more foreshadowing than simply referencing for laughs? Because after all, Michelle's going to go around yelling at people about her dragons, and explaining her boring life story to everybody as much as possible probably, and nobody will really care about her or her dragons. But maybe she will open a door and it will be just snow and Hubbell, talking his funny grunty rapey way, and then she will set everybody on fire? That is so Michelle.
Aubrey: "Sasha, stop kicking so high. We need to look uniform."
Sasha: "Like Mitt Romney, I will struggle to appear ordinary."
Bunheads: "Nice cheerleader outfit, Sasha. Not at all weird on your ballet body. You look like that 'Call Me Maybe' Chatroulette video."
Sasha: "I wish you weren't here. I feel weird about absolutely everything in life."
