The music playing over the first scene, in which Rachel stands in Times Square thrilled to be in New York City, is from George Gershwin's 1924 composition "Rhapsody in Blue." Although Gershwin wrote a great deal of classic Broadway music, this piece is more often performed by symphony orchestras; its association with New York City and Broadway instead comes from its use in the opening montage of New York scenes in Woody Allen's movie Manhattan
(1979). See more
Where have you been?
Hiding out. Everyone hates me.
No, they don't. Ant that doesn't explain why you haven't said a word to me since we've been back.
You should be more pissed at me than anyone else! I screwed up. I'm humiliated! And we worked so hard for everything, and I was supposed to be this big shot leader holding everyone together, and... I blew it. It cost us the championship.
Look, being an artist is about expressing your true feelings in the moment, no matter what the consequences. ...
