Main Round

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 CRESTFALLEN. To give you a clue, here are some clips from WordGirl that show the meaning of the word.

(Clip 1: Huggy upset-- from Heat Wave, Crime Wave)

(Clip 2: The Butcher looking for Li'l Mittens-- from Meat with a Side of Cute)

(Clip 3: Granny May pretending to be upset from having been knocked down-- from Down With Word Up)

(Clip 4:: Mr. Botsford upset over losing his favorite tie-- from Banned on the Run)

(Phil rings in.)

Beau Handsome: Phil!

Phil: Oh no... I just forgot the definition!

(Tommy rings in.)

Beau Handsome: Tommy!

Tommy: A crestfallen is a battle that you lose.

Phil: No, that's not it!

(Emily rings in.)

Beau Handsome: Emily, do you know what crestfallen means?

Emily: Everyone seems so upset in the clips. I think crestfallen must mean sad and disappointed.

Phil: That's it! I knew it. I'm so...

Emily: Crestfallen?

Beau Handsome: Congratulations, Emily! You are today's winner. Huggy, show her what she's won!

(The curtains open, with Huggy holding up a broom. The audience ooohs.)

Beau (voiceover): An official WordGirl broom! Perfect for cleaning up the garage.

Emily: A broom? I thought it would be an orangutan! Or a giant rainbow catcher! I'm really crestfallen.

Beau Handsome: I'm sorry, Emily. What if I threw in a dustpan?

Emily: Better. I guess.

Beau Handsome: 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: Our returning champion will have a chance to play for even greater prizes on the bonus round. Emily, you correctly defined the word crestfallen. Ready to play the bonus round?

Emily: Sure am, Mr. Handsome!

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

(Picture 1: Violet as "The Framer"-- from Violet Superhero)

(Picture 2: Huggy upset after one of Tobey's robots smashed some food)

(Picture 3: Chuck looking victorious)

Beau Handsome: Give it a shot, Emily!

Emily: Crestfallen means to be sad and disappointed. I think it's number two! Huggy definitely looks crestfallen.

Beau Handsome: That's correct, which means you're our bonus round winner! Show her what she's won, Huggy!

(The curtains open, showing Huggy standing next to a large bottle of bubble liquid. The audience ooohs. Then Huggy loses his balance, and knocks over the bottle.)

Beau (voiceover, sounding disappointed): It was the world's biggest bottle of bubbles.

Beau Handsome:  (back in character) Well, that's our show. See you next time on...

Audience: May I Have a Word!
