As soon as the curtain falls Josh rushes out to tell his dad off, finally facing up to him, who wishes he could be more like his brother's. Josh informs his father that his brother's hate him, not wanting to be like them and hate his father. Harrison gets it all on tape as the drama unfolds, Josh's mother standing by her son's side. Sam and Brooke finally have put their differences aside to complete the interview segment for Enterteenment Tonight, but not what they originally set out to do. They tape a video message instead, the story on Josh turning out really good, but however they both felt uncomfortable realizing they were bad friends and used a friend. Fame is ultimately about corruption, and erased the tape, so they can sleep better at night, at least Sam, when Brooke reveals she snores keeping her up making Sam reveal that Brooke talks in her sleep, these lurid fantasies that would straighten the curls out of your hair before signing off.
