But it won't go into Target Display Mode. When I connect the two, nothing happens.

Since I can't replicate that here, I don't know what to tell you. Read the articles and perhaps they can help you get it to work.
Note that it's your iMac that must go into TDM.

Well, nothing seems to work. I did try restarting the MacBook Pro, held down the "T" key, and then it displayed the Thunderbolt icon and it finally showed up as an icon on my iMac (showing the Macintosh HD image). I closed the MacBook Pro but nothing happened. I still see the image though of it on my iMac.
Anyone else have any ideas? I don't want to get another monitor, but I guess I'll get one if all else fails.

I sort of figured it out -- but it displays my MacBook Pro in the same screen size (13-inch) on my iMac's screen. I enabled screen sharing on both Macs in the System Preferences. Then I connected the two with a Thunderbolt cable. Next, on the iMac, I opened the finder and clicked on the MacBook's image under the "Shared" menu. Then at the top of that window I clicked "Share Screen."
It works, but again it only displays in 13-inches. I would like it to fully display - fill the screen.
ScreenRecycler does not work on 10.8.2. There is a beta version for 10.8 but it does not work, either (for me, anyhow). If anyone has any better ideas, please let me know.
