Transcript: Lady Vocab: Distance
Professor P says YOU'VE TUNED
IN TO ANOTHER EPISODE OF THE
LADY VOCAB SHOW.
IT'S TIME TO PLAY WORD GAME, SO
CALL ME CUT PROFESSOR P, AND
LET'S BRING OUT OUR STAR PLAYER,
Professor P is in his late twenties; he has short, dark, curly hair, a moustache and dark rimmed square glasses. He’s wearing a dark grey sweater with a silver "P" on it, over a white shirt and tie.
Lady Vocab says THANKS, PROFESSOR
ARE YOU READY TO TACKLE A NEW
Lady Vocab is in her thirties; she has straight blond hair in a bob and wears a plastic striped black and white dress that reads "window shuttle, machine package, magnetic over" with black leather gloves and square futuristic white glasses.
She stands in front of an old fashioned metal microphone.
A sign behind her reads "Vocab" in a column decreasing in size.
Professor P stands in front of a keyboard and says OOH, OH YES,
MILADY, AND HERE'S HOW IT'S
GOING TO PLAY OUT.
THE WORD OF THIS WEEK,
He turns and uncovers a whiteboard that reads DISTANCE.
IT CAN BE A NOUN IN THE AMOUNT
OF SPACE BETWEEN TWO THINGS OR
PEOPLE, OR IT CAN BE A VERB TO
MAKE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING FAR
OFF IN POSITION.
Lady Vocab says OH, AS IN I COULD
NEVER DISTANCE MYSELF FROM MY
DICTIONARIES BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL
OVER MY HOUSE.
She laughs as a purple caption appears on screen.
Professor P nods as he says GOOD USE OF
DISTANCE AS A VERB, MILADY AND
IT'S NO SURPRISE, YOU'VE ALWAYS
KEPT YOUR DICTIONARIES AT A
CLOSE DISTANCE TO YOU.
Lady Vocab says OH, DITTO,
PROFESSOR P, YOU JUST USED IT AS
She takes off her glasses and says YOU KNOW, THAT REMINDS ME.
WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL GROWING
UP, MY ENTIRE FAMILY MOVED, AND
MY SISTER AND I WENT OUT
EXPLORING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD.
Professor P says OH, WHAT DID YOU
Lady Vocab frowns as she says WELL, I'LL TELL
YOU WHAT WE DIDN'T FIND NEARBY;
Professor P says NO LIBRARY?
THAT'S A FOUL!
Lady Vocab says EXACTLY!
WE HAD TO WALK AT LEAST 20
MINUTES TO GET THERE!
Professor P says OH, BUT BY THEN,
YOU MUST'VE BEEN TIRED FROM ALL
Lady Vocab says YOU WOULD THINK
SO, BUT NOT US.
WE WERE ON A QUEST FOR
WE KNEW WE HAD TO GO THE...
She points to the keyboard and says HIT IT!
She spells out the word D-I-S-T-A-N-C-E
As she names the letters they pop up on screen.
He plays a tune as she dances and sings THE SPACE BETWEEN YOU AND ME
THE LENGTH OF THIS RULER THAT
IT'S A NOUN OR A VERB
WORDS ALWAYS INCREASE YOUR
WORDS LIKE DISTANCE
DISTANCE, THE DISTANCE
The word slides across the screen and flashes as they dance and sing.
Professor P says THANK YOU FOR
TUNING IN AND BEING A PART OF
THE LADY VOCAB TEAM.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOY IT, WE'LL SEE
YOU NEXT TIME FOR A BRAND NEW
They both say TWO, THREE, DANCE
She sings DISTANCE, DISTANCE, DISTANCE
They keep dancing as the image fades to black.
