Kara: "You didn't supply a single lyric. It's called songwriting, not songavoiding."Melissa: "I DID!"Jes & Kara: "Like what. What was one word in the song that came out of your brain."Melissa: "Well, when I say I wrote the lyrics I don't mean it in that way, I mean like, I sat there thinking that I didn't like Jes's lyrics. And then she didn't ask if I liked them."Jes: "And now we're in the bottom. Because neither of us wrote a song. For this songwriting competition."Melissa: "I DID!"Jewel: "Fuckin'... Melissa. What-words-did-you-write-in-this-song?"
Melissa: "She kept saying about there are first of all there are eyes wake up in the eyes."
Jewel: "What line did you write?"Melissa: "There was a smile and then I thought I really like window."Jewel: "But what line did you write?"Melissa: "But you gotta because this overdrive window smile morning wake up."Jewel: "What line did you write?"Melissa: "I just told her the fine apple lime haircut believable. You know like morning time. Like window morning."Jewel: "I am going to stab you in the motherfucking neck."
Kara: "Maybe if you'd told her you hated all the lyrics, you could sell us that you helped in some fashion. Instead, you are telling us straight up that you refused to do even that."Melissa: "Yeah, because she was sick and I didn't want to make her feel bad."Kara: "But you're still contributing to the process, if you do that. By talking and having an opinion."Melissa, the sudden Jekyll of her: "Don't you fucking dare condescend to me, LaGuardia. I got possums older'n you."Kara: (Turns to the other judges grinning wildly because that was amazing.)
Jewel: "Sprout, why should we keep you?"Jes: (An ugly, desperate, half-sincere display. Cannot squeeze out a single tear or even sell her desire to be on the show. I think maybe she's just a ventriloquist dummy from Jackie's shelf that came to life one day. Hocus Pocus Alamagocus.)Melissa: (Rolls her eyes because she is herself terrible, but also because Jes is super hard to deal with today. Or even look at.)
