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

(Clip 1: Chuck wiping off a camera lens-- from Bongo Rock)

(Clip 2: Birthday girl sick from eating chocolate-- from Who Wants Candy?)

(Clip 3: Becky and Bob covered in mud-- from Field Day Fun with Robo-Tobey)

(Emily buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Yes, Emily?

Emily: Smudge means to play tug-of-war. One time, my dog picked up one of my old socks, and I spent two hours trying to pull it out of his mouth!

Beau Handsome: While that's certainly an interesting story, I'm sorry, but smudge does not mean tug-of-war.

(Phil buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Go ahead Phil!

Phil: A smudge is a dirty mark or smear. The Birthday Girl has chocolate smudges all over her face.

Beau Handsome: That is correct, congratulations Phil! You are today's winner! Huggy, show him what he's won!

Beau: (offscreen) An official WordGirl life-size Beau Handsome cutout!

(The curtain opens with Huggy smiling as he presents a cutout containing an image of Beau. He sees it, and looks mystified. The contestants stare at it, equally shocked.)

Beau Handsome: You want me to autograph that for you?

Phil: Uh...

Beau Handsome: Super! (He writes his name on the lapel of the coat.) Oops! I smudged my signature. Well don't worry, we'll get you another one.

Phil: Oh, that's okay. I really don't want anoth--

Beau Handsome: Of course you do! 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! Phil, you correctly defined the word smudge. Ready to play the bonus round?

Phil: I guess so.

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

(Picture 1: The Mayor's uncle eating a pretzel-- from Two Brains' Quartet)

(Picture 2: Emma on stage in a cat suit-- from Becky and the Bard)

(Picture 3: Leslie doing a karate leap)

Beau Handsome: Okay, give it a shot Phil.

Phil: I think it's number one. The Mayor's uncle has mustard smudged all over his beard.

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

Beau (offscreen): An official WordGirl larger-than-life Beau Handsome cutout!

(The curtain goes up, revealing a cutout of Beau twice as tall as the last one.)

(Phil hangs his head and moans.)

Beau Handsome: See you next time on--

Audience: May I Have a Word!
