      • Coco: You know, when I first started school, I had this burning desire to be a star. And I figured I already knew it all, so I was just going to breeze through my classes until I was discovered. Surprise! (laughs) By my second day, I realized I didn't know anything! I mean, I had to work my ah... ... (laughs) Okay, we're taping that, alright. I had to work real hard, just to keep up with the other kids. I mean, you either did it or you were gone, right? But this school taught me something important. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. I mean, a truly valuable success, it doesn't happen overnight. It's based on a foundation of technique and hard work. Y'know, becoming a star isn't really important to me anymore. Becoming a great artist... that's what counts.

      • Montgomery: Growing up I was short, and as you can see, I'm still short, four years later. Montgomery McNeill, forever short, a little leprechaun he is.
        Jesse: So what has the School of the Arts meant to you?
        Montgomery: I guess you could say it was my brown tuxedo.
        Jesse: Brown tuxedo. Could you explain that a little bit?
        Montgomery: Growing up, I always felt like the world was a black tuxedo, and I was a pair of brown loafers. I just didn't seem to fit in anywhere. And then I started classes at School of the Arts, and I instantly felt comfortable here. I was still my weird little self, but that seemed to be okay with everybody. I also found out that I had this special talent – I was a good actor. All of a sudden... (smiles) I was somebody.

      • Bruno: Y'know, when I first came here, I didn't know anything about relating to other people. My life was music. But everyone at this crazy school, y'know, the teachers and the other students demanded that I stop hiding behind my synthesizers and start dealing with them on a one-to-one basis. Well, this was fairly difficult at first, but once I started to open up... I went nuts. For the first time in my life, I had friends. The most amazing thing out of all this is that the more I came out of my shell, the more I grew as a musician. (stops, looks embarrassed) OK?

      • Jesse: So, it's been one year since you left. What do you think this school has meant to your life?
        Holly: Oh, I have great memories of this place... the people... the dressing rooms! But actually, the first week here was an absolute disaster. I mean, I really didn't think I would make it. The criticism was just too much for me to handle, and I think I probably would have left school if my friends hadn't convinced me not to. But after that, I just started working on not taking things so seriously, y'know? I just used to torture myself over every little thing. It had to be perfect. And I think what this school taught me was that... just to enjoy your work. And I think that's important. Because if I'm enjoying myself, the audience will too.

      • Danny: Well Schwartz, I don't have to ask what you've been doing since you left the school.
        Doris: Amatullo, just so there's no misunderstanding, I am married, and this is my nine week old daughter Jenny.
        Danny: And who's the lucky guy?
        Doris: His name is Bob Rhythm. (cut to Danny raising his eyebrows. Doris raises a hand) Forget it, I've heard all the jokes. He's the artistic director of the Kenly Players of Akron Ohio. We met during summer stock. Then we fell in love and... (looks at him and smiles)
        Danny: And the rest is history. OK, so here's the big question. What has the School of the Arts meant to you? And Jenny? You're gonna have to let your mom speak for herself.
        Doris: Well, this is the place where I discovered the real Doris Schwartz. Y'know, I was always acting as a kid, always playing roles, always trying to be what everybody wanted me to be. Then I came here, and everybody had so much confidence, and personality and I realized I didn't know who I was. Then after about four years, and the help of the people here, and the love, I started to get acquainted with myself. And you know something? I really like who I am. If I hadn't come here, I probably would never have known that. (kisses baby's head)

      • Chris: First of all, I want to apologize for the other day. Everything I told you was a lie. I'm not a big shot. I'm just another struggling actor, like a thousand other guys in this town. Truth is, it's damn tough on the outside. No matter how much talent you've got, you're going to get rejected over and over again. But you can't give up. If you really love performing, you've gotta keep trying. Always give it your best shot. And you can't be afraid of rejection. All that rejection is part of being an actor. Not a lot of fun, but it beats selling encyclopedias!

      • Leroy: Thanks a lot... I'm glad you liked our work... I've decided that I'm not coming back to the School next year. I just want to devote all my time to my career as a performer. However, I do thank everyone here for their support. Honestly. Everyone. I have the greatest amount of respect for anyone who can stand up in front of a class and teach... because that's been the most difficult thing for me. And umm... I'm gonna miss working with all the kids here... everyone... I just feel that after six years I have my wings and I should fly away from this nest. Aah... I thank you Miss Grant, for being my friend... and my teacher. You've shown me the right way... and you always will. I hope you guys never forget me, cause I'll never forget you all... and... uh... I'll always love this school.
