Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bands Break Up
AIRED:
Kimber and Stormer quit their bands on the same day because and meet at a club while drowning their sorrows in ice cream. They sing on stage together and sound great. This doesn't bode well for the Holograms or the Misfits since Kimber and Stormer – the primary song writers – have no interest in returning to their bands.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (21)

      • (As The Misfits leave)
        Kimber: It was fun, Stormer.
        Stormer: It was more than fun, Kimber. (Hugging) Oh, we learned a lot about each other.
        Kimber: Yeah. And a little bit about life.

      • (After Kimber & Stormer go double platinum)
        Stormer: And even better, partner. We saved your music company.
        Jerrica: You can be a part of our company, Stormer. How about joining the Holograms?
        Pizzazz: Stormer. (The Misfits walk in) They don't really need you. Please, Stormer. Come back to the Misfits. We need you.
        Roxy: Yeah, it's true.
        Jetta: Come back, yank.
        Stormer: It's true, Jerrica. You don't need me. (Looking at the Misfits) But they do.
        Pizzazz: You mean it. You'll come back.
        (The Misfits cheer)
        Stormer: I will but you're gonna have to listen to me, also, from now on. I'm an equal partner, right.

      • (At Starlight Mansion, Kimber & Stormer tell their story)
        Stormer: And that's what happened. Can you help us?
        (Grabbing a bottle out of the refrigerator)
        Jerrica: Is that what you want, sis? (Kimber nods) I think you were right about somethings, Kimber. We did take you for granted. (Kissing Kimber's cheek) But we love you and always will. No matter what. Of course, I'll help.
        Raya, Shana & Aja: (Together) We all will.
        Jerrica: We'll package and promote your album.
        Aja: We're so happy for you.
        Raya: Congratulations
        wait til Eric Raymond sees how we can make a hit.

      • (In Eric Raymond's office)
        Stormer: I almost let you lose part of Starlight Music because Pizzazz and the others gave me gifts. But then I realized you gave me something nobody else ever did. Sincere friendship. And that's worth more than anything the Misfits ever gave me.

      • (In Eric Raymond's office)
        Kimber: Alright, Eric. I hate to say this but you win. I can't finish the record without Stormer. I should have known. Once a Misfit. Always a Misfit.
        Eric: At last. I own half of Starlight Music again. It's mine.
        Stormer: (Interupting) Don't be so sure of that, Eric.
        Kimber: (Surprised) Stormer
        Stormer: I finished the harmoney. The record's done.

      • (After hearing Eric Raymond is behind the problems with getting their record completed)
        Kimber: Give me that phone. (Grabbing phone) You misereable creep. We're going to make that record no matter what you do. (Slamming phone down) And you. (Looking at engineer) You're fired.

      • (Walking off stage)
        Jem: Something's wrong. It's not coming together.
        Shana: (Looking at Aja) You messed up that guitar solo. That's what was wrong.
        Aja: Well that's usually Kimber's part. It wasn't written for a guitar.
        (Walking into the dressing room)
        Jem: And what about you coming in late after the 2nd verse.
        Raya: Kimber always cured me by stepping back at that point.
        Shana: I never realized how much we really need Kimber (Sitting down at the make-up table) We're just not the same with out her.

      • Stormer: Aw. We're not having any luck. (Putting whipped cream on her banana split) Maybe we should ask for help.
        Kimber: No way. We've got to do it by ourselves or everybody will laugh at us.

      • (After Kimber & Stormer tell their groups that they're staying together)
        Pizzazz: Without us, you're nothing. You'll come crawling back.
        Stormer: Hmm. The Misfits just want to exploit me. At least your group cares about you.
        Kimber: I care about you, Stormer. Friends.
        Stormer: Friends forever. Against the world.

      • (While singing Bad Influence)
        Pizzazz: The kid's a goody-goody. She hasn't got a clue.

      • (On the Lin-Z Pierce show)
        Stormer: Hey. Kimber's lyrics are the greatest. And my music, nobody does it better.
        Kimber: In fact, Lin-Z. We wrote several new songs for tonight's concert. this should be our best show ever.
        Lin-Z: What kind of songs? Will you give our audience a hint.
        Stormer: I've never done anything like them Lin-Z.
        (Watching through the Misfits television)
        Stormer: They're really meaningful and sensitive. I love them.
        Pizzazz: Meaningful.
        Roxy: Sensitive.
        Pizzazz: She wants sensitive. We'll give her sensitive.
        Kimber: And my lyrics. Stormer's been helping me. They're really storng, hard, driving. I love them.
        (Watching through the Holograms television)
        Jerrica: So this is what she's been doing.
        Stormer: All of you be sure to come to the club tonight for our concert.

      • (Handing Kimber & Stormer a contract)
        Dave: Girls. I have something for you. Take a look at this.
        Kimber: Wow. This contract's pages and pages long. What's it all say?
        Dave: Just sign at the bottom. I know in my bones you're gonna be a hit.
        Stormer: A hit. Really.

      • (As Kimber is putting on her make-up)
        Jerrica: Why won't you talk to me, sis?
        Kimber: Got nothing to say.
        Jerrica: Are you going out?
        Kimber: (Brushing her hair) Any problem with that.
        Jerrica: No, of course not. But where are you going?
        Kimber: You don't really care what I do or think. Putting down brush) So why are you asking me all these questions?

      • (After getting up on stage)
        Stormer: Try to keep up with me. Slow ballad in G.
        (Stormer starts playing)
        Kimber: That's perfect for my new lyrics. (Stormer turns her back on her)

      • (After the Club owner announces that Kimber and Stormer are in the audience and attempts to get them on stage)
        Stormer: I'd rather swallow tar than sing with you.
        Kimber: I'd choke first. (The crowd continues to clap) They really want us.
        Stormer: I know. I know and I don't like it.
        Kimber: This isn't going to change anything, Misfit. I still don't like you.
        Stormer: That goes triple for me.

      • Kimber: Stormer!
        Stormer: (Choking on her bite and spitting it out) Oh, wonderful. A lousy day is made lousier. Kimber, the kid Hologram. Where's your big sister, creepo. She let you out after 4:30.

      • Bar Keep: Name your poison.
        Kimber: Peach thick shake. Real thick.
        Bar Keep: Oh, scrumptous.
        Stormer: Vanilla cola. Make it a double and a hot fudge sundae. 3 scoops with a banana.

      • (After Roxy, Pizzazz & Jetta mock her)
        Stormer: You don't care about anything I say.
        Roxy: (Laughing) You wanted us to be serious.
        Stormer: You've never cared. (Walking towards door) I hate you all. (Opens door and leaves as Pizzazz, Roxy & Jetta laugh at her)

      • (At Misfits Music)
        Pizzazz: Come on, Stormer. You really think this junk's a song. I've seen better notes on a tax form.
        Roxy: Yeah the music sounds like dinosaur's snoring (Making snoring sounds) Yelk.
        Stormer: Come on guys. At least try it once. I know that it'll work.

      • (Playing their instruments)
        Raya: We need something hot. Something to dance to.
        Aja: With strong rythmn.
        Kimber: I still think we ought to
        Raya: (Interupting) This song should be about love.
        Shana: Yeah. We haven't recorded a good love song in months.
        Kimber: I got nothing against love songs but I still think a ballad would be better. (The others play their music ignoring her) Are you listening to me?
        Jem: Trust us. We know what we're doing.
        Aja: Yeah, kid. We're older. So you gotta do what we say alright.
        Kimber: Wrong. (Kicking over her keyboard and walking away)

      • (As the ladies come into their recording studio)
        Aja: Jerrica's right. The song on the flip side of our next single should be up tempo.
        Kimber: No, no, no, Aja. I want to do a slow ballad.
        Raya: It all sounds good to me. But if Jerrica wants a faster beat, I'll vote that way.
        Shana: Besides a faster beat will sell better.
        Jerrica: Sorry, sis, but you're out voted.
