Beau Handsome: Hello! I'm Beau Handsome, and this is...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: As usual, the player who correctly defines today's featured word will win a fabulous prize! Let's play...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: Yes, you may! Today's featured word is COWER. To give you a clue, here are some clips from WordGirl that show the meaning of the word.

(Clip 1: Mr. Botsford crouches down from an attack by Chronos-- from Bummertime)

(Clip 2: Scoops hiding under a tree-- from Cherish is the Word)

(Clip 3: Citizens hiding from falling debris)

(Tommy rings in.)

Beau Handsome: Okay! Take it away, Tommy!

Tommy: Cower means to crouch down in fear. Something I'd know nothing about. Because I'm not afraid of anything!

Beau Handsome: (thinking) What about snakes?

(Phil gasps and hides behind his podium. He continues to do this after each creature is named.)

Tommy: Nope.

Beau Handsome: Spiders?

Tommy: Nuh-uh.

Beau Handsome: Sharks?

Tommy: Definitely not.

Beau Handsome: So you're telling me you're completely fearless?

Tommy: Yep.

(Phil is still hiding behind his podium.)

Beau Handsome: (sighs) You seem rather proud of that fact!

Tommy: I am.

Beau Handsome: (sarcastically) Well, good for you, I guess! (going back into character) Anyway, congratulations, Tommy! You are today's winner. Huggy, show him what he's won!

Beau (voiceover): An official WordGirl indestructible shield!

(The curtains open, with Huggy holding the shield out as if in battle. The audience ooohs.)

Beau Handsome: It's perfect for protecting yourself against anything you may be afraid of.

Tommy: I told you, I'm not afraid of anything.

Beau Handsome: Yes you did. (sighs) Well, that's it for today's episode. See you next time on...

Audience: May I have a Word!

Bonus Round

Beau Handsome: Hello, I'm Beau Handsome, and this is the bonus round of...

Audience: May I Have a Word!

Beau Handsome: Tommy, you correctly defined the word cower. Ready to play the bonus round?

Tommy: Obviously.

Beau Handsome: Great. Take a look at these three pictures, and tell me which one shows the definition for cower.

(Picture 1: Members of Becky's class raising their hands in excitement-- from Tobey's Playground Calamity)

(Picture 2: Reginald tied to the Butcher-- from Have Snob, Will Travel)

(Picture 3: Huggy crouching down in front of Chronos-- from Bummertime)

Beau Handsome: Okay, give it a shot, Tommy!

Tommy: It's number three. In that picture, Captain Huggy Face is cowering from one of Tobey's robots.

Beau Handsome: You've got it! Huggy, show him what he's won!

(The curtains open, showing Huggy standing next to a clown. The audience cheers, but Tommy gasps and ducks down behind his podium.)

Beau (voiceover): An official WordGirl Clown for a day!

Beau Handsome: Tommy?

Tommy: (nervously) I was, uh-- I-- I dropped something down there.

Beau Handsome: (smugly) Of course you did. Well, that's our show. See you next time on...

Audience: May I Have a Word!
