How do you tell the timeline to go to a certain frame once a movie clip within it reaches a certain frame?

On that certain frame within the movieclip, add a frame action. Depending on which timeline you want to effect. Lets just assume its the main time line you want to move when that frame in that certain movieclip is reached.
ActionScript Code:
_root.gotoAndPlay(5); //or a frame label _root.gotoAndPlay("labelName");

place on that the frame, when its reached it will the maintime line to go to and play frame 5..follow me?
