She Hungered For Fame... The Men In Her Life Offered Love, Danger, Excitement! Girl In Gold Boots.
A young girl, Michele, is persuaded by a disreputable agent-type to leave her job as a waitress and travel to Los Angeles to become a go-go dancer. There, she must compete with the established top star, Joan, and eventually ends up taking her place.
This here is one of my favourites! I don't exactly know WHY, but this episode holds a special place in my heart. I think I just find it really funny... I dunno. It's kind of a dumb movie though.
My favourite memory of this episode is one day, I put the movie on and about five minutes in, I realised I had to head to the post office to pick up a package. So I left the episode playing for my roommate, who was in the room sewing or whatever... I was half-way across town when I realised what a horrible roommate I am! When I returned, her first words were "How could you put this crappy movie on and just leave like that?!?" I had a good laugh about it.
So yeah, the song "I Am Sad" is one of my favourites. I tend to get it stuck in my head quite often actually.
I think everyone needs to watch this episode again, just for the hell of it.
Favourite line: "Thank you! Thank you! I'm the one who jumped, thank you!"
