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.
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.
