Transcript: Lady Vocab - Decimal
The opening slate displays the show title in sparkly, golden letters against a blue background. It reads "The Lady Vocab Show."
Professor P says TIME TO LEARN A
Professor P is in his late twenties and has short, black, curly hair. He wears thick, black glasses, a black sweater with a big, silver letter "P" in the middle, a white shirt, and a black tie.
He continues I'M PROFESSOR P, AND
YOU'VE TUNED IN TO
THE LADY VOCAB SHOW,
STARRING, LADY VOCAB
Professor P stands in front of a board covered by a black cloth, and next to a keyboard. Lady Vocab stands nearby next to a microphone. Behind them, there is a white sign that reads "LADY VOCAB."
Lady Vocab is in her late-twenties and has shoulder-length, blonde hair, with long bangs and fury, blonde ears. She wears sparkly, silver glasses, a striped white-and-black dress with very pointy shoulders and several words written on it. She also wears black, elbow-length gloves, and black, knee-high boots.
She says THANKS, PROFESSOR P!
