At the alley snack bar, Carol's telling Anne Meara that she gave it her best shot in saving her job, and that the gym coach will be cutting back twenty percent on dodgeballs. Ed walks in, quietly sporting a copy of Cara's hairdo. Anne Meara says that when Ed was in her class playing French horn, she knew that someday he'd be a lawyer who owned a bowling alley. Ed says, "Is that right?" like Anne Meara's a phone psychic all of a sudden. Anne finishes with, "Or a doctor. Or an astronaut. Or a proctologist with cold fingers. ANYTHING but a professional French horn player." Everyone has a chuckle at poor talentless Ed's expense. They all sit and bemoan Anne Meara's fate until Phil walks up and says, "Hellooo??" and asks what's wrong with everyone. They're trying to save the music department, right? Right. Haven't they seen Mr. Holland's Opus? Yes they have. So put on a big music concert, that's how you save the music and get things done...Helloooo? Carol says that's probably how it works in the movies, but not in Stuckeyville. Phil says, "Earth to Carol...Helloooo?" Ed asks Phil to quit saying "Helloooo."
