(shameonpretzel)

Helga enters under the name "Hellen O'Troy". (peachcake21)

Helga is pressured into cheating, but only does it once ((to Rhonda)) (peachcake21 and Meganium)

Helga tries to impress Arnold (Wierd1)

Helga does familiar Cecille stuff ((falls down from heels)) and then an event happens causing hert o look like Cecille ((bucket falls on her head causing her hair to go down)) ((Arnold notices and is left in shock!))
(Inuyatta)

Eventually Helga finds out her hair is down like Cecille, screams, and Arnold is the only one to notice (Wierd1)

Lila comes in 2nd ( shameonpretzel)

Gloria wins first, (Meganium)

Pheobe stops Helga from cheating ((especially because it will leave Arnold un-impresssed)) (Meganium)

Optional

Gertie is judge, but tries to enter the pageant herself

Gerald could be with Arnold

Characters

Pheobe (also minor, optional:contestant in pageant, convinces Helga not to cheat)
Gloria (also minor, possibly wins 1st)
Gertie (also minor, is judge but tries to be a contestant)
Gerald (also minor, to acompany Arnold)

Settings
School
Pageant location: P.S 118

Other
The Bet: Rhonda bets Helga that she can't beat her in pageant

Outline

-Valentine's Day Pageant is advertised on flyers in the school.
-Rhonda brags about how she could win that pageant with her hands tied behind her back. Helga says something snarky, and Rhonda says, "Oh yeah? Well I bet YOU wouldn't even PLACE in the pageant if you entered!" And of course Helga wouldn't let Rhonda talk like that, especially not when Arnold happens to be there, but she just says, "I'm not gonna enter some stupid pageant just because you challenge me."
-Cut to different scene where Phoebe's helping to pick out an outfit, and Helga says, "I can't believe I'm entering some stupid pageant just because she challenged me."
-Helga decides to enter as "Helen O'Troy" so no one finds out it's actually her competing (it would be stupid of her to say "Okay, I'll enter" and then not enter as herself!)
-Rhonda could figure out her real identity, and taunt Helga ("I thought you said you WOULDN'T enter this 'stupid pageant'!") Of course, this enrages Helga. [I don't know if Rhonda would threaten to reveal her identity though-- what would she get out of it? I think she'd just be content to gloat to Helga.]
-Helga attempts to cheat during the pageant, possibly by doing things like putting itching powder in the underarms of Rhonda's dress, but Phoebe convinces her not to cheat. So Helga says, "All right, all right... but can I at least do Rhonda's?" And Phoebe says, "Well..." [Later onstage we see Rhonda trying very hard not to scratch at her armpits. XD]
-Helga acts charming onstage like she did as Cecile, and Arnold feels like he knows her from somewhere and maybe has a little soft spot for her. Helga also does Helga-ish things like tripping in her high heels. XD This solidifies Arnold's feeling like he knows her...
-Gertie is a judge, but tries to participate in the contest until Phil reminds her of her judicial status.
-Perhaps Arnold (or possibly everyone, but it'd be cuter if it was just Arnold) could discover that it's really Helga and not "Helen O'Troy"? This would make HelgaxArnold moments easier, since it would be between Helga and Arnold, not Helga and "Helen". XD
-Helga does not win, but gets third place, while Phoebe gets second and Gloria gets first (which is a surprise, since Helga didn't even know she was entering and no scenes of her performances were shown. XD) So Helga's like, "GLORIA?! When did SHE get here?!" XD Helga wins Miss Congeniality, and is taken aback, stepping backward and holding her flowers bashfully. Eventually she trips a trap that she'd set up for Rhonda, causing a bucket of water to fall on her! x3
-Her hair to go down into her Cecile-style. Arnold's eyes widen, but Helga doesn't know her hair is "ruined," so she's just like, "What are you staring at, Football Head [another reason Arnold should know who she is! The nicknames will give it away! XD]?" And he's like, "N...Nothing...You just... look like someone else I know." Helga looks at him like he's crazy. And then Helga gets home, sees herself in the mirror, and screams bloody murder as per usual Helga. Cut to Arnold sitting up in bed as Gerald sleeps over at his house. Arnold whispers fervently, "Did you hear that?" And Gerald says sleepily, "Hear what? Go back to sleep..." XD And Arnold just frowns. We could insert the red shoe here, but it's optional: we all know he's thinking of Cecile. XD

Aaaand it looks like we SHOULD incorporate the scene where Helga's hair gets messed up to give Arnold a hint, since that got a lot of positive reactions. <3 As you can see, I found a way to mix it in there. XD
(Meganium)


Me:
This is a suggestion I just added Smile

BTW, I had an idea for the messed-up-hair-Helga. . .
Maybe Arnold (possibly Gerald too, to talk to Pheobe) want's to talk to Hellen after the pageant so he waits for her to come out (which is taking FOR-EV-ERR!) Finally Helga and Pheobe come out. (Arnold is puzzled!) He watches them leave BUT! (yes there's a but!) then one of Helga's attempt to cheat (which for whatever reason she did not dissmantle) backfires on her (the water bucket scene :3) . The water bucket falls on her, leaving her hair down. Arnold helps her get up but then. . .

(The following scene is Inuwatta's)
I have a scene in my head of Helga being helped up by Arnold after a bucket of water falls on her head and knocks her down in this scenario. At this point, Helga's hair is now all wavy and half of it is over her eye in Cecile-fashion, and as Arnold is helping her up, he can't help but notice the shocking resemblance and ends up holding onto Helga's hand longer than necessary. Helga
eventually freaks and snaps at him.

Helga: Earth to football head! You mind if I have that back, or are ya just waiting for it to fall off?
Arnold: *blinks and shakes his head* Uh...sorry about that, Helga.
Helga: Whatever, Arnold-o, I gotta date with a shower before the smell of Ammonia sets in permanently. *stalks off*
Arnold: *watches her go, wide-eyed*
Gerald: Arnold! You ok, buddy?
Arnold:...Yeah, Gerald. I'm fine--it's nothing. I'm...I'm gonna head home now. *does so*
Gerald: *raises an eyebrow, but lets him go*
(The scene above is Inuwatta's)

Then (like Wierd1 says) she goes home (or she can go to the restroom in the pageant) she looks in the mirror screams Bloody Murder XD
And then Arnold hears it , turns to Gerald ( I picture them walking home) says:
Arnold: Diiiiiiid you hear something just now?
Gerald: Nope!

Again, looks good! My plot progression outline should let everyone know where the story goes, so if anyone wants to work scripts with me (writing or editing--I'll be doing both), let me know!

Welll, people might disagree with me on this... xD But could we keep the whole Cecile thing a little small? It seems like it isn't used too much in the outline, anyway, but just to make sure...

Sorry, I'm realllly sensitive with the whole Cecile thing xD I just love the Valentine's day episode to death, and I kinda love the whole thing left where it is. Very Happy But having a few gags about it would be great <3

I dunno-I think everything's pretty much covered, and I'm not in my creative mind to think about anything else. Smile

I'm loving this idea...SO much.
Very Happy


The progression from a 'Cecile' episode to a 'Pageant' episode has been very fluid and, so far, very workable. I can definitely see the potential.

Few things I wanna add:

1) I really like the "Gertie as a Judge" idea. It makes for some good comedic moments, and it also gives Arnold a good reason to be involved in the pageant.

2) Having the pageant in the Woodrow Wilson (P.S. 118) auditorium - I think this is a good idea because it gives Helga an opportunity to devise her traps (after all, she would be familiar with the stage's set-up, since she played Juliet in "School Play" Razz)

Keep it up, you guys.
Very Happy

Just the auditorium is named Woodrow Wilson. It's fun fact number 30 in the link above.
