Wagstaff Elementary is doing something new: the Fall Musical will not be "Grease," but, rather, an original student production. Gene wants to produce his own musical version of "Die Hard," but Doug Wheeler finagles stardom for his annoying child, Courtney, using his own work, a musical version of "Working Girl." Louise finds an old boiler room (which she thinks was the old faculty opium den) and hatches one of her patented plots. Tina follows the buns. Things get really out of hand... glove... shoulder pad--until Gene is noble (like a white knight?) He extends an olive branch to Courtney and the other kids. Why go for The Conflicty when you can Work or Die Trying? Written by LA-Lawyer
