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

(Clip 1: Granny May driving toward two security guards-- from the short Driving Miss Granny)

(Emily buzzes in.)

Beau Handsome: Emily!

Emily: A swerve is one of those old-timey cars that grandmas drive.

Beau Handsome: I'm sorry, Emily, that is incorrect. Anyone?

(Phil buzzes in.)

Phil: A swerve is that yellow painted line in the middle of the road?

Beau Handsome: Sorry, that too is incorrect.

(Tommy buzzes in.)

Tommy: To swerve means to weave or zig-zag, as Granny May's car did in the clip. That episode introduces the character of Granny May, by the way. Landmark episode.

Beau Handsome: You're right! Congratulations Tommy, you are today's winner! Huggy, show him what he's won!

Beau: (offscreen) An official WordGirl unicycle!

(On the stage, Huggy is staying balanced on the unicycle by quickly pedaling forward then backwards. The crowd ooohs.)

Beau: (offscreen) Be the envy of all your friends when they see you gliding down the street.

(Huggy start pedaling back and forth across the stage, but after a few seconds he loses control, and starts heading toward Beau.)

Beau Handsome: Or maybe even-- swerving down the street! (Beau ducks behind the podium, as Huggy flies past him. Soon there is a loud crash as Huggy wipes out in front of the contestants. Beau stands up and regains his composure.) 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 swerve. Ready to play the bonus round?

Tommy: Sure am!

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

(Picture 1: TJ on his bicycle in the park, trying to avoid Huggy)

(Picture 2: Mrs. Botsford offering different-colored apples to Violet and Becky.)

(Picture 3: Bob wearing glasses with large lenses-- from Jerky Jerk)

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

Tommy: TJ is clearly swerving, just like Huggy did on the unicycle. I'm gonna go with number one.

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

(The curtain opens, and Huggy is pedaling on a stationary bike.)

Tommy: Oh, I get it-- a stationary bike. No need to swerve with one of those.

Beau Handsome: Well, that's our show. See you next time on--

Audience: May I Have a Word!
