Rachel brings Mary to the diner to ply her with donuts and try to convince her that the script is all wrong. Rachel kindly tells her that the character she wrote actually sounds a lot like Mary. Mary disagrees, claiming that audiences want anti-heroes, not earnest portrayals. Rachel asks Mary to listen while she expresses herself through song, something that makes Mary cringe. Rachel gets up on stage and sings Pink’s “Glitter in the Air” which should give a person all the feeling in the word. There was something about it that was so passionless though. A beautiful voice doesn’t automatically touch your heart unless the feeling is there, and for this number, it felt flat. It worked for Mary however who experiences a feeling unlike any she’s had before. Happiness. She decides to give Rachel’s version of the script a shot.
