CENSOR: Hold it!
CENSOR: This is ridiculous. Doo-dah? Doo-dah?
JILL: Yes I do. Do you?
CENSOR: That’s not a question. Just what in the heck does Doo-Dah mean?
JILL: What’s the difference?
CENSOR: There’s a lot of difference! I’m the official speech contest censor.
CENSOR: Censor! It’s my job to keep all smut, sexist language and obscenity out of school assemblies.
ERIN: You gotta be kiddin’.
