TOTAL ECLIPSE | Season 2 | Ep. 2: “Solar Eclipse”


( music playing )Cassie:Previously on
“Total Eclipse”…
Mr. Lane:
As your new Vice Principal, I’m requiring you to have
an extracurricular activity
this year. Or as I’m calling it,
a “thang.” – Fashion.
Cheer. – Writing songs.
– Well, I got an after-school
job. Captain: Two, two,
three– ( grunts )
What the heck? You’re both off the team. What? This year,
I’m going to date Scott. You’re super mean. Anyone who’s willing
to date you must have no self-esteem. Kate:I need your help,
Brayden thinks that we’re
still together.
I didn’t know about that. Then I’m breaking up
with you now. Hey, Spencer,
I’ve been trying to talk
to you all day. Hey, Jenna, what’s up? Kate: How’s Cassie? You still haven’t talked? I’ve been waiting all summer
to apologize face-to-face. Did you know that
today’s the day I… Both:
…finally get to see Sam? Mr. Lane:So I spoke
to your mother last week
about signing you up
for dance classes
after school starting today! Hi, are you new here? ( bell ringing ) Mr. Lane: ( over PA )
No looking up at
the sky today, kids.
That’s right,
it’s a solar eclipse!
I know at least one of you
is excited.
( laughs )And even more importantly
today is the deadline
to submit your “thang”
to me, uh, by me–
uh, I mean,
( clears throat ) Mr. Lane.
I am the one who is
reading
the morning announcements
right now.
I know you can’t see me,so I just wanted
to remind you.
All right! That’s me,
Mr. Lane, signing off.
Oh, my God! Jesus! That is scary talking
to people when you can’t see ’em. I really do not like that. Maybe you should get
someone else to do the announcements,
Mr. Lane. Huh, maybe I should. ( bell rings ) You really like
this new dance class, huh? Not as much as
I love your scarf. Thanks, I made it
myself. I was gonna ask you
what you’re doing after school today,
but I think I already know. I have dance at 2:30. And it’s solar eclipse day. It’s like night time
during the day. If I want that,
I’ll just close
my curtains. Well, there’s actually
multiple solar eclipses
every year, but you can only see them
at certain spots
on the Earth. Fascinating. I think that’s my cue. – Hey.
– Hey. Do you wanna hang out
after school? Uh, actually it’s– Solar eclipse, I know,
I meant, do you want to watch
the solar eclipse
after school?( soft music playing )Cassie:Huh?I guess you can’t really
watch the moon eclipse
the sun if you’re standing
on the moon. I feel like this is
a fantasy. Cassie? – Cassie!
– Uh, don’t you think
it’s a little public? I mean, Kate’s going
to be there, right? She has her after-school job
until late, so… come on, it’ll be fun. Okay, but no making fun
of me when I geek out because I will be
geeking out. Awesome.( music playing )Mr. Lane: ( over PA )
Diana and Jenna,
can I see you in my office?This is Mr. Lane again
by the way.
If you didn’t know.I see you’re still
making your own clothes. Maybe you’ll get good
at it one day. I still see you’re cruel
to people for no reason. Come on in, Diana! So, I heard you’re
no longer doing cheer. so that means you need
a new “thang” for the new year. I’ve got that taken care of. I’m going to be
class president. ( scoffs ) You mean
running for class president. Nobody would be foolish
enough to challenge me. Okay! Very cool. I admire that confidence. And you know,
I’m all about confidence. ( chuckles )
Except when I’m on dates, or when I’m talking to people
who might yell at me. Or when I’m going snorkeling. Too many fish
with questionable motives. ( sighs ) – Can I go?
– Oh, yes, of course. Please, bring in Jenna. Jenna! So, have you come up
with a way to utilize your skills so you can pay the bills?
( chuckles ) And I do mean hypothetical bills because of course you’re
still a minor. Right. Well, I was thinking
I could help kids with ugly designs in their lockers, and help them be cooler. Hmm. Yeah, that’s not gonna
cut it. So, you have until the end
of day tomorrow to come up with some “thang” or else I’ll be assigning you
a “thang.”( soft music playing )I’m excited to announce
to you all that I’m going to be
your new class president, and I’m appointing Morgan
to be my campaign manager. Says who? Excuse me? Come before me, Lady Morgan
of 342 Fairweather Lane. Now kneel and kiss my ring. As I suspected,
a commoner. A pretender at our midst. And you know what we do
to those who lie to the princess. That’s fine, Morgan. You don’t need to be
my campaign manager. I intend to officially
announce my candidacy
this afternoon when school lets out. And I’m going to make sure
Scott’s there, right beside me. – Hey, Jenna.
– Oh, hi… Scott.
I didn’t recognize you. You mean, without
all the acne. No, it’s just… been a few years
since we’ve talked. Yeah, I think the last time
we hung out you were stealing a swing
from me during recess. Sorry about that. I just wanted to say
your drawings are
really good. Thanks. It’s a new dress
I wanna make. I’m actually working on
something too, and I could use some help. From me? Mind if I sit? Sure. Mr. Lane: ( over PA )
Morgan! Can I see you in my–
uh, Mr. Lane’s office.This is Mr.–So I hear you’re no longer
cheerleading. That’s Diana’s fault. ( laughing ) I don’t care
who’s fault it is, okay? All I care about is
that you have a “thang,” and, Morgan, your grades
are not good. All I’m saying is
that you need an extra special “thang”
that looks good to colleges. That’s why I’m giving you
the morning announcements. – What?
– Yeah! They’re super fun, really easy, and nothing
to be scared of, for sure. And you’ll be doing it
with Eli, the AV guy. The kid who always smells
like cheese? ( sniffs ) ( scoffs ) I won’t do it! Okay, well, maybe I should
call your parents and we can talk about
your grades. – Ugh! Fine.
– Mr. Lane: Super! Wanna give this thing
a testaroo? – Now?
– Yeah! Now’s my favorite
time. Along with party time.
( chuckles ) Here.( PA static )( mic feedback )Attention, Millwood?( mic feedback )( bell rings ) Morgan: (over PA)
School’s out for the day,
so make sure you work
on your “thang”
so Mr. Lane doesn’t need to
assign you to a “thang.”
I can’t believe I just said
the word “thang.”
And so, it is with
great pleasure and humility that I’m announcing my candidacy
for class president. So when election day comes,
make sure to vote Diana. Or else.
( giggles ) There you go. What? – Did you see this?
– Yeah. I can’t believe Scott’s
running against me. He wasn’t even hot
till this year. I’ve been hot since,
like, fifth grade. No offense, Diana,
but this seems like something you should bring up
to your campaign manager, who you’ll remember, isn’t me. Does this drawing look like… Jenna!( soft music playing )Instructor:
And wide second, plie. And right shoulder. Oh, well, well. I thought we scared you off
after our first session. All right, everyone, switch. Hey, we met last time,
remember? Julian. ( both chuckle ) I’ll definitely
remember now. Ooh! Let’s do this! Everyone look at Cassie
and Julian. Let’s do that.
Hand shake stretch,
through the legs. Stretching is
very important, you guys. If only I would have
stretched more, I wouldn’t have pulled
a hamstring and lost the regional
dance finals in 2007, and I wouldn’t be here today. You’re gonna
hear that a lot. Got it. Eyes up you two,
come on. And everybody up,
and over. Woman:
The pay is $12 an hour,
no more, no less.
Make sure everything
is tidy and straightened.
The customer is always right, unless they ask
for something with fern, in which case
they are very wrong. ( floor boards creaking ) How much experience do you have
with hanging clothes? I have a closet. It’s not only clothing we’re selling
at Vanilla & Sage, it’s also a presentation,
a feeling. Show me how you hang. Nice. Some people throw
all their clothing in a pile like they’re making
themselves a nest. ( floor boards creaking ) All right, Kate,
you can get started by organizing the blouses
by size. Instructor:
Four, five, six,
seven, eight. One. All right, good work everyone. Nice progress this week. Keep doing your stretches. Makes all the difference. Would have made all
the difference to me if I had stretched more
in 2007. We can’t take back
the past. Have a good week,
everyone. Hey, so you missed
the first couple sessions. If you want,
I can stay late
and catch you up on some of the routines. That’d be awesome,
but today’s solar eclipse day. Astronomy and space
is kind of my thing, so I can’t miss it. Kind of wanna watch that too if I can find some of those
eclipse glasses. Is it really that obvious that I need extra help
on the routine? You’re doing great. Especially for someone
who just joined the class, but everyone needs
some help sometimes, so if you need any
extra practice, the offer’s on the table. No tags showing, dear. Have you seen Luca around? The register is jammed again. Who? Woman:
Luca, there you are. Have you been in the store
the whole time? I’m stealthy. Kate, this is my stepson,
Luca. Luca, this is Kate,
she’s going to be helping
around the shop. I believe you both
go to Millwood. Kate: Nice necklace. It keeps away the bad spirits. Kate! Um, so does that mean you’re– Luca:
Does that mean I’m what? A warlock? A witch. ( snake rattling ) Are you all right,
Kate? I’m just feeling
a little woozy. Oh, I do not have time
to get sick. You can go home early,
Kate. Go take some vitamins
and get uncontagious. Come on. And Luca, will you please
help me with this register? Oh, hey, um,
I hope you like it. This is, uh, my first time
watching an eclipse, but this is how
YouTube said to do it, so… Kate’s not here. Yeah, this is perfect.♪ Here we are so what
do we do now? ♪
Maybe we’re afraid ’cause
we got something to lose now ♪
Hey.
Are you okay? You know the sun
isn’t disappearing
forever, right? I just helped Scott
with his flyers and now Diana wants
to kill me. Diana tried to kill
me once. Sixth grade.
It was pretty terrifying. Shouldn’t you be
with your girlfriend? Just ’cause I have
a girlfriend doesn’t mean I can’t have
girl friends. I’m sorry about last year. I should have paid more
attention to you. I just had things going on. It’s fine. And hey… I got this for you. Book club’s still waiting
for you any time.♪ And we stop saying
what we mean when we mean it ♪
Thanks.♪ …any hope when we know
we was leaving ♪
♪ Only pain until we drop it ♪♪ If we’re gonna fall apart,
we stop it ♪
Sam, do you have
an extra pair of glasses? I wanna watch it too. – Cassie?
– Kate? What’s going on here? We’re just watching
the eclipse. No, what’s going onhere?We’re just hanging out. We’re just hanging out? What? Aren’t we? No. I– Kate, can I talk to you
for a second? All summer I wanted
to apologize to you for dating Brayden. I thought I did something
so awful, and I find you holding hands
with my brother. Now you know how it feels.♪ Stop saying
that I wasn’t enough ♪
♪ Oh, oh, oh, oh ♪( explosion )I can’t believe I was
gonna apologize to you. I can’t believe you’re so
uncool about me dating
your brother. I’m fine with it, actually. I only care when
Sam dates my friends. Are you okay?♪ Whoa-oh,
and we try to be strong ♪
♪ We try, we try,
we try to stop it ♪
I missed the eclipse.
