Flashback #5: Jack is driving down a city street and who does he spot? MISS KATE, playing hooky from school. Why, he wonders, quite reasonably? Because Alanis Morissette, Kate’s favorite musician ever, is signing CDs at the local record store (yes, I remember those, too, I TOLD YOU I AM OLD). Jack doesn’t completely understand Alanis’ music, or her appeal. He offers up Bruce Springsteen. Kate points out they have some similarities as musicians. They’re telling stories through their music. And she’s been writing her own music, too, she confesses.
