The show opens with Marti Perkins narrating about her life and that she is a law student. She talks about how Lancer University’s cheerleaders, the “Hellcats”, are the icon of the school because of the football team. She sits next to Dan, who is watching the cheerleaders. They make jokes on which one Dan wants and they see one of the cheerleaders, Alice, fall and get hurt. Dan laughs about it but Marti tells that she is really hurt. She tells that she has to go and rides home. When she gets home, she sees that there is a Past Due notice on the dresser from Lancer University. Marti rides over to her mom, Wanda’s, work and shows the past due notice. Wanda tells that they send out the Past Due notice to scare her but Marti tells that they are going to bar her from classes if she doesn’t pay it. Wanda tells that they can’t do that and tells Marti to find out why because she is the law student. Marti tells that she only has two days to get an appeal in and leaves. ..Read the full recap
Savannah: (about cheerleaders) We are an internationally recognized competitive sport. We spend twenty hours a week practicing. We bench press twice our body weight and run a seven minute mile. We could be with broken thumbs and twisted ankles, smiling through the pain. We are athletes.
Marti: Back in Dollywood, maybe
Marty uses a DVD of "Bring it On" to prepare for auditions
Marti: (to Dan) Freemasons put pyramids on money, giving us (pauses) Dan Brown.
Marti states a pervading myth that the "eye in the pyramid" (The Great Seal of the United States) on back of the dollar bill is a Freemason symbol. She connects this to the author of the best selling book The Lost Symbol published in September, 2009. Written by Dan Brown as a sequel to his best seller The Da Vinci Code, the book delves into the world of Freemasonry and involves a mystery with a pyramid at its core.
Marti: Save the cheerleaders, save the scholarship.
This is a reference to the tagline for the TV series show Heroes: "Save the cheerleader, save the world."
