It is time for the senior drama class to put on their annual show.
MS. CARLSON First, let me give you the good news. I have to say, you've gotten off to an admirable start. I like the direction you're going in.
(Class reacts positively.)
Now, for the bad news. And I think you know what I'm referring to. Can we please edit out the curse words?
ROD Why? If now isn't the time for all the fury we can put into words, when will it be? When it's too late? Besides, what are curse words? Just sounds in the air. But, at least, they have shock value.
MS. CARLSON I'm not thinking so much about myself as I am about your parents. What about what some of your parents will call "taking the name of the Lord in vain"?
JAN I'm sure we all love our parents. But they need to get wake up, get off their asses and do something about the problem.
SUE I agree.
