Make It or Break It: Run, Emily, Run

Sasha's refusal to welcome Emily back to the Rock has her at a loss as to what to do other than to keep training. Fortunately, her Pizza Shack co-worker, Damon, has an idea on how she can do just the Rock.

Meanwhile, Payson's Dad, Mark, reveals he lost his job and the family now has some hard decisions to make. And Lauren's obsession with Carter reaches new levels.

Episode Quotes
MJ: You know what I see when I look out there?
Sasha: Knowing you, dollar signs.
MJ: I was going to say the next Olympic gold medalist.
Sasha: Emphasis on gold. I'm quite serious MJ, while your here no agency. Keep your hands off the girls.
MJ: Agreed, so long as you tell me where I can put my hands.

Payson: But you've asked for time off, right Dad?
Mark: Remind me again, time off for what?
Payson: Nationals? Boston? How could you forget it's only two weeks away?
Mark: Nationals, I'm pretty sure this is the first I'm hearing about it. Is this kind of a big deal?
(Payson gives me a dirty look as he laughs)
Payson: I'm serious.
Mark: (hugs Payson) You always are. Relax. Taken care of, I wouldn't miss it for the world, you know that.

(Emily tries to get another chance with Sasha)
Sasha: I came to the rock to train athletes with the qualities to compete at the highest levels. Based on your recent performance I've decided you're not one of those athletes. There's no longer a place for you here. Get your things and go.

(the girls response to Sasha throwing Emily out of the Rock)
Payson: I don't believe it!
Kaylie: He threw her out.
Lauren: Looks like it's gonna be the three of us again. One, two, three, three, two, one. Order has been restored.

(Damon and Emily arrive to break into the Rock)
Emily: OK, this is a bad idea. A bad bad idea.
Damon: If by bad you mean kick-ass, brilliant, you're welcome.
Emily: We could get arrested.
Damon: No risk, no reward. Worst case you're the first in your family to do hard time.
Emily: Third, actually.
Damon: The more I find about you, Kmetko, the more I find intriguing.

(Emily watches Damon picking a lock)
Emily: You can actually do that? Pick a lock?
Damon: Some kids grew up learning cartwheels and back flips. This is what I learned.
Emily: Your Dad must be really proud.
Damon: Who do you think taught me?

(Sasha talking to JM about who's the best)
Sasha: Kaylie, for instance is a total winning performer, but I wonder if she has the fire in her belly. Lauren, on the other hand, is all fire. But I wonder if she can channel it to suceeed. And Payson, well there's nothing stopping Payson.

Sasha: I see the dog has learned a new trick.
Emily: I deserve a shot at Nationals.
Sasha: Afraid I'm all out of little biscuits. You'll have to go without a treat. Sorry.
(Sasha walks off)
Emily: I'm not leaving. I'm as good as everyone else here. You saw what I just did.
Lauren: Poor delusional thing.
Payson: Shhh.
Emily: You have no right to take this away from me.
(Sasha walks back over to whisper in Emily's ear)
Sasha: You're no good to me, Emily. You're like a dog that won't stay. Uncoachable because you refuse to listen. You've been the boss of you for such a long time, Emily, but you haven't shown me that you'll let someone else take that job. So please, stop embarassing yourself. Go home and get on with your life.

(Summer holds up the necklace that she knows Lauren stoled from Kaylie)
Summer: Yeah I thought so too. Maybe you can loan that one to somebody else. Lauren you have to earn your place in your friends lives just like you earn your place in gymnastics. You don't just get a spot. You have to earn it by the little things you do every day. I know you're mad at me but I'm trying to earn my place in your life. And it isn't always gonna be by being your pal.

Sasha: You...have an amazing talent inside of you, Emily Kmetko, but you won't be able to find it on your own.

Episode Goofs
MJ (Miss Sharp) is supposedly a world class agent but she doesn't know that talking to an underage client without her parents present could bring some serious ramifications? When she talked to Payson, even if Payson did approach her, she should have informed her that it was inappropriate and her parents should be present. But instead she acts like a shark and jumps on the oppurtunity and presents a proposal to the girl. Really stupid.

Cultural References
Lauren: Oh I was talking to MJ. How cool is her job? She gets to jet-set all over the world and meet all these cool people: Venus Williams, Michael Phelps.

Michael Phelps, the winner of 8 gold medal's in swimming at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, is probably the most famous Olympian in history after his record breaking haul.

Venus Williams is a star tennis player whose won numerous major championships.

In Search of Sasha's Sex Organ!

So for the four episodes since Sasha has become the head coach at the Rock we've been presented a lot of interesting situations for the new coach, except anything involving romance. So in one episode we go from no woman even looking his way to two woman practically crawling all over him in search of organ.

One can be understood as Chloe was simply trying to get something in return for an activity she's no doubt done before. While the other (with MJ) presented a side of the Beloff character that has went unexplored, his interest in the ladies. Problem is neither one seemed to work as an actual exercise in raising his blood pressure. But instead seemed rather stilted and staged and came off feeling cold.
