Billy Sunshine: I booked you guys in concert at the Oval Auditorium. It's gonna be a sellout. Simultaniously, video-beam, live over network three, with, with enough watt spillage to, to, to reach over at least more than two other provinces.
Hal Sterling: Trace and Gina just got expelled from school.
Billy Sunshine: I'm stunned. That you would interject such an unimportant piece of information. I mean, what is school compared to millions and millions of funds? School is preparation for live, they're living it now, so who cares?

Rock and Roll Music!
10 March 2007 | by Little-MikeySee all my reviews

The Sterling family has settled into a town that is not unlike a typical city in the United States. So they attempt to blend in and are quite successful until the children, who are enrolled in the public high school, are driven by the blandness of what the inhabitants consider music, to give their classmates a taste of some real rock and roll music.

On Earth, the scene has repeated itself in history, first with Elvis Presley in the 1950s and then, with the Beatles in the 1960s. The music is fresh, new, wild and exciting. And teenagers go wild.

The scene here is no different. The Sterlings play some songs made famous on Earth by the Beatles. The kids go wild, the adults are horrified and all hovoc breaks loose.

After chaos breaks out, the parents are called in. A talent agent also gets word on this new phenomenon and decides to sign them up as a new act.

Unfortunately, this newfound attention also gets the attention of the zone trooper who has been after the Sterling Family ever since they escaped from his custody, stealing not only his vehicle, but also his special key.
