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

(Clip 1: Huggy acting scared as a dodgeball approaches him-- from Book Ends)

(Clip 2: Dr. Two-Brains scrambling to get away from cats-- from Crime Takes a Holiday)

(Clip 3: Reginald being afraid)

(Clip 4: Chuck being afraid)

(Phil buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Phil!

Phil: (acting scared) Uh-huh?

Beau Handsome: You buzzed in, do you want to answer it?

Phil: Uh-huh...

Beau Handsome: Uh, I- I'm going to need you to answer. I- have a feeling the definition is right on the tip of your tongue!

(Tommy buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Tommy!

Tommy: All the clips show people almost frozen from fear. So petrified must mean so scared you can't move. (pointing at Phil) They were almost as petrified as him!

Beau Handsome: That is correct, Tommy! Petrified means so scared you can't move, and Phil is indeed petrified!

Phil: Uh-huh!

Beau Handsome: Congratulations, you are today's winner! Huggy, show him what he's won.

Beau: (offscreen) It's an official WordGirl microphone!

(The curtain opens, showing Huggy wearing sunglasses and holding a mic. Phil breathes in quickly.)

Beau Handsome: Phil, what's the matter now?

Phil: I'm scared of public speaking!

Beau Handsome: But, you speak into a microphone every time you're ON this show!

Phil: Oh, my goodness-- you're RIGHT!

Beau Handsome: That's it for today's episode, see you next time on--

Audience: May I have a Word!

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! Tommy, you correctly defined the word petrified. Ready to play the bonus round?

Tommy: Yup!

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

(Picture 1: The Butcher with Li'l Mittens-- from Meat with a Side of Cute)

(Picture 2: TJ as WordGirl Fan Club president, smiling at the podium)

(Picture 3: Violet holding a box with a scared look on her face.)

Beau Handsome: What's your answer, Tommy?

Tommy: Violet looks petrified. She must be scared of talking in public. The answer is number three.

Beau Handsome: That's correct, you're our bonus round winner! Show him what he's won, Huggy!

Beau (offscreen): Your very own stage to perform--

(The curtain goes up, and Huggy demonstrates a miniature stage.)
