> Raye: Serena in a ballet! My God, you can practically HEAR the Loony
> Toons theme!
> Mina: You have to admit that this sounds like one of those times when
> your life practically mirrors a Lucy sketch.
> Undaunted by the other girls' scepticism, Serena & Reenie begin training

> force of comedic ballet skits from Red Skelton, Danny Kaye, Lucille
> Ball, and Carol Burnett. The teacher is thoroughly exasperated by her

> since the lead is sure to go to a very talented and graceful student

> The next day of ballet class finds new students joining in to train.
> Much to Serena's chagrin, it's the other girls. The girls innocently
> deny that they're joining for the opportunity to see Serena make a fool
> of herself, but they're bad liars.
> As the class starts, it seems that the other girls vary in grace and
> skill at the ballet; Lita is a bit awkward for her height, and Amy
> seems to excel at just about anything she puts her mind to. During
> stretches at the bar, Serena can't seem to get her leg up onto the bar.
> Under a berating from the teacher, Serena finally has to grab her thigh
> and hoist her own leg onto the bar. Then she grabs her other leg and
> hoists that one up too, causing her to crash to the floor. [I remember
> seeing Red Skelton that in a movie]
> But there is another new student who seems even more graceful and
> skilled than the teacher's favorite Kiri. The teacher is enchanted by
> this new talent. The teacher asks this new student to stay after class
> and discuss the lead role in the ballet. Kiri is dismayed to find her
> hold on the lead slipping before this new student.
> None of the realize that the new student is Mako in disguise.
> Serena and Reenie find Kiri standing on a bridge worrying about losing
> the lead role to this new student. Reenie says Kiri is very good and
> that she can see that she enjoys herself when she dances. Kiri admits
> that she and her teacher have been together for years, and that they're
> good friends who share a love of ballet. Kiri decides that she
> shouldn't be resentful if her teacher finds another for the lead role,
> if he feels that it will help the ballet. Kiri thanks Reenie & Serena
> for their kind, supportive words.
> At the ballet club, the disguised Mako is practicing the lead, while the
> teacher seems lost in thought. He's thinking about Kiri, and all the
> good times spent teaching her and watching her develop into a skilled
> and graceful dancer.
> Before a dress rehearsal, the teacher calls to the disguised Mako and
> tells her that he is reconsidering his choice for the role of Gizelle.
> Although his new student is a technically perfect dancer, there is a
> coldness about her stage presence. He would prefer to have Kiri in the
> role, since she could communicate a joyful passion to the audience.
> When the disguised Mako witnesses the teacher tell Kiri that she is
> confirmed in the lead and she gives him a hug, Mako is so enraged that
> she transforms, knocks Kiri away with a water ball, and extracts the
> teacher's dream mirror. Serena and Reenie, who are backstage, transform
> and come to the rescue.
> As the Sailor Scouts rally to do battle, Mako summons a ballet-based
> lemure, The Nutcracker. [Sailor Moon admits that although this lemure
> is based on the ballet by Tchaikovsky, it is definitely the GAYEST
> looking monster they ever went up against] What starts out as a
> straight foreward battle against a negaverse monster, degenerates into
> an impromptu ballet that has to be seen to be believed.
> With the last minute intervention of Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Moon destroys
> the lemure with the Moon Gorgeous Meditation.
> With her teacher released from his bonds and conscious, a relieved Kiri
> gives her teacher a hug, and then in gratitude she gives a hug to Sailor
> Moon, and then the teacher hugs Sailor Moon and Kiri hugs Tuxedo Mask,
> and pretty soon everybody is huging everybody else, and this stops when
> Sailor Moon accidentally hugs Mako, who quickly makes her escape from
> the momentarily startled Sailor Moon.
> On the night of the preformance of the ballet, the whole gang is in the
> audience except for Serena. They later discover that Serena has a bit
> part in the ballet. She makes her entrance, being lowered into the
> scene riding on a crescent moon.
