The girls are watching an outdoor fashion show for clothing designer
Harvey [played by either Oliver Platt, Nathan Lane, or Harvey Firestein
- Nathan would be best, but Harvey would work for less money] The
designer comes out onto the runway to take his bows to the cheering
audience. The designer and the models go backstage, where Harvey has a
comically neurotic fit.
[NOTE - It is here we are introduced to the players in a potential
unrelated spin-off series called, "Size Zero" - the comedic
misadventures of a talented, effete, rather neurotic clothing designer.
He is assisted by his chief cutter, a working-class Earth-mother type,
whose level-headedness and common wisdom pulls his fat out of the fire
on more than one occasion. The cast is completed by an assortment of
anorexic, brain-dead, high fasion models and assorted hangers-on,
including the requisite chain-smoking, aging ex-fashion model who shows
up half in the bag, and spends theepisodeinsulting everybody. Here's
an example of the humor found in this series...
one of the characters maliciously asks a complex, philosophical question
of one of the more dim-witted models, and she makes a rather odd face as
she tries to wrap her tiny little brain around the question, to which
the other character comments...
"It's rather like watching a dog eat peanut butter!"
"You idiot! It's 'binge', THEN 'purge'!"
"I know, but I like to purge first, so I'm not so full when I start
"Purge WHAT?! Aquafina and St. John's Wort?!"
"You have to sympathize with Cathy-Lee. She tries so hard to get it
right. At first, she makes sure that the sweaters are being made at a
reputable shop, somewhere in New England, where it's clean and safe, and
the workers are paid 10% over union standard - then she turns around for
five minutes, and the whole lot is being sub-contracted out to Laos, for
12 units for a penny, being made by 15-week old kittens chained to
sewing machines, who are beaten 24 hours a day with iron staves!"
In the performer's lounge of the Dead Moon Circus, Mako returns from
shopping with packages of Harvey Original designs, when Tyger & Hawkeye
muddle over the latest selection of targets - this time, it's a picture
of clothing designer Harvey. Mako gets all excited, and starts changing
her clothes behind a screen, telling Tyger & Hawkeye that she will use
her charms to catch Harvey...
Tyger: I hate to tell you this, but I think this target only likes
Mako emerges from behind the changing screen, dressed as a gay male...
Mako: [with a gay accent] What a coincidence, queen - so do I!
Tyger actually has a start. "Mako, some days you actually frighten me!"
In her dreamscape, Reenie shows Elios her memories of the fashion show,
especially the wedding dress at the end. Elios asks her who will be the
groom when she wears a wedding dress. She thinks for a while, and Elios
says that she'll meet someone in the future.
Harvey is having lunch in an outdoor cafe with his chief cutter,
fretting over the upcoming Fall & Winter design seasons. That's when
they are approached by Mako in her young gay male disguise. Harvey
becomes excited by Mako's youthful yet epicene look, and wants "him" to
model - but for WOMEN'S clothes!
Later, back at the Dead Moon Circus, Mako gleefully announces, to Tyger
& Hawkeye, her role modeling Harvey fashions, and being hailed as the
Mako: "I have just one thing to say! Shan-nay! Shan-tay!
Tyger: Whoa! Hold it! Hold it!
Mako: What is it?! What's wrong?!
Tyger: What's wrong?! - what's RIGHT?! "A woman, pretending to be a
man, pretending to be a woman?!!"
Tyger: It's preposterous!
Well, anyway - as she is being fitted for clothes in Harvey's studio,
the disguised Mako turns out to be the high fashion model from HELL;
Demanding, she manages to piss off everybody around her, and the whole
design staff winds up quiting. She practially takes over the whole
operation from the dismayed Harvey, who retreats from his studio
After a very funny scene where Serena practially blows Darien's whole
bank account on a shopping spree, they have a chance encounter with
Harvey on the run from the insane Mako. Being a fan of Harvey's
designs, Serena's discussion with Harvey helps him to realize that he
must take control of his life, no matter what.
Harvey returns to his studio to fire Mako. Mako transforms into her
Dead Moon Circus costume and extracts Harvey's dream mirror.
Sailor Moon & Teenie Moon arrive to confront Mako. She summons a
trained seal lemure with a ball balancing on its nose. The lemure uses
the ball to attack the Scouts. Tuxedo Mask arrives to help out, and the
lemure is defeated by the Moon Gorgeous Meditation. Mako retreats.
Sailor Moon and the others make sure Harvey is awake and alright before
they leave. This inspires Harvey for his next fashion show - Sailor
collars & Mini skirts! It's a big sucess!
