Episode Summary

EDIT
Pilot
AIRED:
Hunter bristles at the arrival of Courtney Scott, an accomplished actress added to the cast as her character's orphaned cousin. She is especially disgusted to learn that Courtney's character is to steal Becky's boyfriend. Hunter plots to oust her from the show, and convinces the insecure Marcy to help by claiming that Courtney is to replace her. Rob and Hope constantly second-guess their decision to hire Courtney. Courtney is surprised to discover that cast members don't look at the script ahead of time, and have no interest in motivation or character history. She finds herself on the verge of being fired when she has trouble handling last-minute script changes. Johnny saves her by teaching her to hide the script behind her character's textbooks. She draws a standing ovation with her performance, prompting Rob and Hope to hail themselves geniuses. Marcy grows jealous of the amount of attention Johnny devotes to Courtney. A sick child from the "Make a Dream Foundation" catches Quentin without his hairpiece. He blackmails Quentin into getting him a speaking part on the show. Johnny is oblivious to Richard's crush on him.moreless

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Hunter: So, are you gonna be a bridesmaid?
        Marcy: What are you talking about?
        Hunter: Johnny's in love. Either that or he's got a surfboard in his pants.

      • Courtney: Maybe because I'm a poor girl, I have low self-esteem and I'm trying to compensate for that by dressing in an exhibitionistic fashion.
        Pat: Right. They must have accidentally left that out of the script.

      • Richard: I was shopping at the Beverly Center yesterday, and I saw something that had your name all over it.
        Johnny: Man, I'm so pissed. I told them they cannot be putting out merchandise without my permission.

      • Hunter: (to Marcy) You are so great on the show... even if the fans don't agree.

      • Dave: (to Johnny) Dude, she's so in love with you. It's disgusting.

      • Marcy: When I walk into a room, people are happy to see me. When I walk into a room, people are happy to see me.

      • Courtney: Most recently, I played Nora in A Doll's House at the University of Arizona.
        Hunter: Oh, I can't believe I missed that.

      • Courtney: Hunter?
        Hunter: No offense, but I have a policy against talking to the extras.

      • Hope: Maybe we shouldn't have hired someone he didn't like.
        Rob: Hope, relax. This is the genius who told Felicity to cut her hair.

      • Hope (About Marcy): Why does she always have to thrust her boobs like that whenever she feels an emotion?

    • NOTES (2)

      • Marcy was originally written as the niece of a prominent network executive. The nepotism angle was dropped after the WB received complaints from Aaron Spelling, who considered the character a personal attack on his daughter Tori. Several lines appear to have been changed in post-production, most obviously in the final scene. When Marcy places a phone call, she appears to be saying, "Get me my uncle," but the line that is heard is "Get me my agent."

      • The theme song is "Sex Bomb (Peppermint Jam Disco Mix)" by Tom Jones.
