Did You Know?


Rayanne auditions for the part of Emily in the Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Our Town" written by Thornton Wilder and first produced in 1938. In this tale of life, love and death (as the names of the three acts indicate), the character of fourteen year-old Emily is the opposite of Rayanne: sweet and innocent, a top student at school engaged to a doctor's son. When we see her again nine years later, Emily has just died in childbirth but lingers to say goodbye to the things she loved. At the end of the episode, Rayanne gives a moving performance of Emily's farewell monologue, a performance she claims is based on her imitation of Angela for her purity and kindness. See more »


Jordan: Here, before I finish it.
Rayanne: Oh no, it's cool. Have as much as you want. I'm drunk.
Jordan: Yeah, me too. But not enough.
Jordan: So, Graff... who you here with?
Rayanne: If you mean where's Angela, she didn't come. Like usual.
Jordan: Just let me ask you something.
Rayanne: It wasn't even my idea. To audition for the stupid play. It was Angela's. And right, like I could be Emily.
Jordan: Emily, who?
Rayanne: The part in this stupid Our Town play. It was just wishful thinking. I could never be her. Angela could be her.

The Best of The Best
10 June 2012 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I just re-watched this episode during a marathon on Sundance Channel. This show, particularly this episode, was one of television's finest moments. I won't give anything specific away other than to say the last few minutes of this show is so beautifully written, so beautifully acted, so beautifully directed, that I am moved to tears every time I see it. Particularly strong in this episode is AJ Langer. She says so much with her face and her posture. She is a master of the instrument she was given. It's hard finding any flaw in this show; for that matter, there are no bad episodes of "MSCL." Among the great, this particular episode elevates the entire series to the stratosphere.
