Transcript of Victorious

Victorious The series follows Tori Vega, a teenager who is accepted into Hollywood Arts High School, a school for talented teens in various performing-arts fields, after taking her older, much less talented sister Trina's place in a showcase after Trina had an allergic reaction to a Chinese herb product designed to help make people sing better. The plot follows Tori as she finds her place within Hollywood Arts, while getting into crazy situations and adventures, and meeting friends to help her along the way. Other students at Hollywood Arts, and the students who make up Tori's group of friends, include Andre Harris, a musical prodigy who becomes Tori's best friend at Hollywood Arts after encouraging her to stay at the school and helping her realize her talent; Robbie Shapiro, a socially-awkward ventriloquist who carries around his puppet Rex Powers, who is seen by Robbie (and generally everyone else) as a living person; Jade West, a sarcastic gothic "mean girl" who has a complicated frenemy relationship with Tori and often threatens her; Cat Valentine, a sweet and innocent but naive and somewhat dim-witted girl; and Beck Oliver, a laid-back and handsome guy who was Jade's boyfriend. They had been a couple since before the start of the series until the Season 3 episode "The Worst Couple" when they broke up. Beck and Tori have also had moments where they were attracted to each other, but Tori did not want to risk her small friendship with Jade over this.

Susan Chuang as Mrs. Lee Tori Vega Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) is the main protagonist of the series. She is the younger sister of Trina Vega, and attends Hollywood Arts, a performing-arts high school, along with her.

Tori is admitted to Hollywood Arts after taking her sister's place in a big showcase at the school. Trina comes down with an allergic reaction to a Chinese herb and Tori is volunteered by Andre to take her place. Tori performs "Make it Shine" the theme song of the show and everyone is impressed with her performance, including the principal who offers her enrollment to the school. Though initially feeling out of place at Hollywood Arts, Tori makes new, supportive friends and gets more comfortable. From there onward, the show details Tori's journey as she gets into wacky situations, and has different experiences and adventures with her friends, as she finds herself along the way.

She is depicted as creative, nice, caring, forgiving, responsible, positive, easy-going, and friendly, though she can be sneaky and vindictive, going as low as to manipulate her friends and family (especially Trina), but will always do the right thing. Tori is shown to care for her friends and family a lot and is willing to help them no matter what, even when she is hesitant to.

Tori is friends with Beck, Cat, Robbie and the closest to Andre. She often considers Jade as her friend but Jade likes to think otherwise. Tori has feelings for Beck but does not want to hurt Jade's feelings, so she rejects him when he tries to kiss her (as shown in "Tori Goes Platinum"). Andre Harris Robbie Shapiro Caterina (Cat) Valentine Caterina "Cat" Valentine (Ariana Grande) is one of Tori's spunkiest friends from Hollywood Arts. In a video on TheSlap she reveals that her full name is Caterina but only her grandmother calls her by her full name. It was also revealed by Robbie in “The Blond Squad” when he yelled “Caterina Valentine, I will not sit here anymore and listen to you talk bad about yourself!!! You’re adorable!"3 She is relatively friendly and liked by all of the students. She is sweet, pretty, naive, bubbly and happy, often unsuspecting of what is really going on around her. She has a playful nature, and has a very short attention span so she can easily be distracted with colorful items by the others when they want her out of the way. She can be somewhat of a drama queen, and doesn't take criticism very well. She often screams "What's that supposed to mean!?" when offended, which is very often and has become a catchphrase of hers.4 Cat often says very random and strange things, which leaves the others confused or annoyed, the latter mostly being Jade.

Cat is also an extremely talented singer and actor, as seen in "Freak the Freak Out" where she sings a duet with Jade, and in the crossover episode "iParty with Victorious" where she shows a high vocal range.

A running gag of the series is Cat often telling her friends or random strangers about her brother, who seems to have many unnatural problems, all of which Cat doesn't seem to find strange or abnormal. She has bright red hair, that she dyed to resemble her favorite snack, a red velvet cupcake. Andre once nicknamed her "Little Red", which she took offense to at first, but then called it "creative".5 It is revealed in the "Breakfast Bunch" that she is a Vegan.

In several episodes it is showed she has deep feelings for Robbie, though never clarified as to if those feelings are of the romantic type. It is also shown that she dreams of Robbie on a regular basis, although some are strange, such as when she dreams that little children are attacking them and that Robbie is trying to save himself by shoving Cat towards the children while yelling " Don't eat me, eat her!" Jade West Beck Oliver (Avan Jogia) is Jade West's ex-boyfriend who is extremely attractive, which makes him yearned-for by many girls. He and Jade were together for over two years. He likes to tease Jade and make her jealous, often to see if she really cares, seeing as how she is often emotionless and cold. Beck seems to be the only one who can really calm Jade down and is the only one who has some control over her.

Beck is seen as soft-spoken, friendly and open. Although he is shown to get annoyed and even lose his temper, usually by Robbie or Trina, he is normally calm and collected. He and Andre are shown to be close friends. His own locker is transparent, which is his way of saying that he has no secrets, revealed to Tori when she was attempting to find an idea for her own locker. He and Tori share a kiss in the pilot episode during an alphabet improv exercise, but they just remain friends after that despite his hidden yet growing feelings for her. He lives in a trailer parked in his parents' driveway because as he stated "my roof, my rules". In the season 2 premiere, Jade mentions that Beck is Canadian and finds this irritating.

It is shown in "Beck Falls for Tori" and "iParty with Victorious" that Beck has never felt true terror nor has he ever been scared by anything. He usually tries to keep peace in the group and hold everyone together. Beck breaks up with Jade in season 3 episode, "The Worst Couple". In the episode "Tori Goes Platinum" Beck tries to kiss Tori, finally revealing to her that he has feelings for her, but she rejects him because of Jade. Trina Vega (Daniella Monet) is Tori's older sister, who attends Hollywood Arts. In the pilot episode, Trina was supposed to perform in the big showcase with Andre. After an allergic reaction to a Chinese herb gargle that was supposed to make her sing better, Tori takes Trina's place in the showcase which leads to Tori enrolling at Hollywood Arts. It is guessed she is half Latina, because Tori is.

Trina believes that acting and singing is her destiny, despite her being quite talentless (even though in the song, Shut Up N' Dance, she was quite good). In fact the only reason why Trina is even in Hollywood Arts in the first place is because Sikowitz was having a hallucination in the episode "How Trina Got In" during Trina's audition and every other judge was out at the time. Trina is quite selfish and shallow most of the time, and sometimes is antagonistic to Tori. Trina is portrayed as being extremely difficult to deal with, and among the main cast, sometimes even to the point of being called a "monster". Tori is the most intolerant of her due to them being sisters.

Despite this, she can be concerned about Tori when she wants to be. Recently she has shown some minor character growth as is seen in "Locked Up" when she tries to get Tori out of prison. Trina Vega Beck Oliver Robert "Robbie" Shapiro[1] (Matt Bennett) is one of Tori's friends at Hollywood Arts. He speaks along with a puppet, Rex Powers, whom he and all others speak to as if it were an actual person. Robbie is a skilled ventriloquist, but he was un-credited for his talent until Freak The Freak Out, but he is shown to be confused about it, not understanding why he was referred to as a "ventriloquist", which jokingly indicates that Rex has a mind of his own and is not controlled by Robbie at all.[2] He is said to have Rex since he was little and can almost always be seen with Rex. Robbie personifies Rex, which leads to many an argument about Rex's true sentience. He constantly argues that Rex isn't a puppet or dummy when told otherwise. Robbie is closest to Rex, though Rex ridicules him often, and is shown to be affectionate towards him.

Robbie is considered extremely nerdy, shy, and socially awkward, but a good, loyal, and honest friend to his friends. Robbie has a great deal of trouble with women, relationships, or how to attract women. It is often hinted that Robbie may be in love with Cat, and is proven true in the episode "The Blonde Squad" where Robbie is shown to have wrote a song for her that he sings to her at the end of the episode. It is about what a great person she is, and how they get along so well, and that she is all he thinks about. She however, does not appear to get the true feelings behind it, though she does appear to greatly enjoy the song. He is also shown to be the only one who knows Cat's full name, Caterina. He does not seem to have a sense of privacy. His only relative who has ever been seen is his grandmother. It is revealed that Robbie is allergic to Gluten, other wise know as Celiac Disease, and also that he is a Vegan. It is revealed in Wok Star Robbie is Jewish because he spent his Bar Mitzvah money on leather pants and male make-up. Andre Harris Andre Harris (Leon Thomas III) is Tori's best friend. Andre is an aspiring musician who loves to perform. He can play many instruments, including the guitar, keyboard, piano, and the French horn, but prefers the keyboard and piano. Andre takes his music seriously and is usually seen playing at all of Tori's performances. He is an amazing singer and songwriter, having co-written nearly every song Tori has sung. He also often gets Tori to sing back-up for him at his own performances.

Andre is shown to be witty and kind and Tori often relies on him for support in her time of need, and he is always there for her, although he is easily distracted at times. He is the guy Tori and the others come to for help or advice on anything. He also likes to make jokes, but none of the other characters find him humorous.

We are not told much about Andre's personal life, but we do know that he has an extremely crazy grandmother. Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies) is the occasional antagonist of the series; the gothically-clothed, cold-hearted, emotionless girlfriend of Beck. Protective of her boyfriend, she has been known to lash out at anyone who she views as a threat to their relationship and shows little affection for her friends, particularly disliking Tori, who has topped her or surpassed her in various ways in the past. Vindictive and spiteful, Jade has been known to take obsession in triumphing over any enemies or rivals she may find, and occasionally has been known to take an interest in bizarre, dark, or unusual things that usually would repulse or frighten other people. Aside from her heartless nature, Jade is a skilled singer, actress, and playwright, talents that she has displayed on numerous occasions throughout the course of the series.

It was revealed that her childhood was a dark and unhappy one, her favorite plaything being a hammer, and that she had been raised by an unsupportive and similarly emotionless father.
