  • HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE GIRLS?

    Bunheads: Bumps in the Private Road

    "Inherit the Wind" wasn't bad, but it did raise a few flags.

  • Episode Summary

    Fanny's reaction to Hubbel's will is typically dramatic, and Michelle escapes the atmosphere by driving her inherited car along the coast. Unfortunately, she encounters small-town atmosphere when the car breaks down and she's stranded on a private road from which no one will rescue her. Back in Paradise, the Girls participate in an ugliest feet contest with other dance studios.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Michelle sees Grant's huge telescope.)
        Michelle: Oh, you have a view. Help me out. What should I be lookin' for?
        Grant: Uh, whales, dolphins, seals. Uh, there's a nude beach about two miles up to the left.
        Michelle: Aah! Why is it that the people on nude beaches—
        Grant: Are never the ones you want to see naked? I don't know.
        Michelle: Why do you look?
        Grant: I can't help it. It's a biological disaster zone. It's like two miles of Dali paintings walking around free.

      • Fanny: My son has thrown me out into the cold. He might as well have put me on an iceberg and pushed me out to sea.
        Michelle: That's ridiculous! We're miles from the nearest iceberg.
        Fanny: How cocky being land rich has made you.
        Michelle: Fanny, Hubbell loved you. You know that. I mean, the man lived with you for 48 years. That's love. It's borderline psychotic, but it's love.

      • Fanny: Now, a mug, a mug, a mug.
        Michelle: Fanny, please just take a mug.
        Fanny: (in a baby voice) Hubbell made this for me when he was six. (back to normal voice) Of course it's toxic and contains lead paint, but it was a gift. And here's where I'm confused. Are gifts yours, too? Should we call the lawyer before I pour my tea?

      • Fanny: This tea kettle actually came with the house. It was under the sink when we moved in, so it belonged to the people who lived here before we did, so I figured it was legal to use.
        Michelle: Legal?
        Fanny: Now that one. The shiny, new, clean one, of course is yours now.
        Michelle: Oh, boy.
        Fanny: This one is a bit rusty, and there do seem to some holes around the side here. But I figure if I don't fill it too full, and I stop it before it completely boils, I might be able to almost have enough for a single cup of tea.
        Michelle: Please stop.
        Fanny: Now, water— water could be a problem because the pipes are yours and the sink is yours and the faucet is yours. I guess I could tap into the county well water, or maybe take a bucket out to the aqueduct, or there's pond water, or that pothole on Highway 3 should still have some rainwater in it from the other night. Maybe I could build a fire and boil the insects out.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • (Michelle is amazed to find out everyone has her phone number.)
        Michelle: Thornton Wilder should have mentioned the creepy side of small town life.
        Melanie: Who?
        Michelle: No one. He was in Menudo.
        Ginny: Who?
        Michelle: I'm gonna go be old now.
        Michelle refers to Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1938 play Our Town, in which the audience learns all about the sleepy town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, through narration by the stage manager, and traditional action and dialogue of the play. Wilder was never a member of 80s Puerto Rican boy band Menudo.
