CHIP

At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

My parents keep on telling me

Just being here is winning

Although, I know it isn't so

MS. PERETTI

But it's a very nice, very, very nice

MS. PERETTI, CHIP

Very, very nice

Very nice

Beginning!

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

Our winner here last year, Chip Tolentino.

LOGAINNE (spoken)

Ms. Peretti!

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

And our youngest competitor, Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre.

LEAF

At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Game - Bee

I'll stand when they announce my name

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

Leaf Coneybear

LEAF

And try and keep from shaking

LOGAINNE

Alas

His shaking will not pass

ALL

'Cause it's a very big, very fraught

Simple but it's not

It's a very big undertaking

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

Returning from last year's tragic setback, William Barfee!

WILLIAM (spoken)

It's pronounced Barfee; there's an accent aigu!

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

Uh, I'm not sure who this girl is...

MARCY (spoken)

Marcy Park, recent transfer.

LOGAINNE

Winner's destination

Washington, D.C.

SPELLERS

Plasma t.v. in a fancey hotel

Where they treat you well

All because you love to spell

We spell!

MS. PERETTI

It's a marvelous memory

If you win the spelling bee

One's life improves from A to Z

The minute you are crowned here

I see a trophy held by me

And the one I want

Did I swell?

Oh the stories I could tell

But bragarts

Don't do well around here

OLIVE (spoken)

Hi, I'm Olive Ostrovsky

Do you know where I check in?

WILLIAM (spoken)

Shut up!

LEAF

At the 25th Annual

We memorize the manual

SPELLERS

About how to spell these words

Words that require thought

People think we're

Automatons

But that is exactly what we're

Not

MARCY

We hear the word

LOGAINNE

We breathe

LEAF

We wait

SPELLERS

Unlike idiots

We ideate

MS. PERETTI (spoken)

To ideate means to form an image or idea; to think

LEAF

At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

LOGAINNE

We feel no animosity

GIRL SPELLERS

And yet our heads are spinning

WILLIAM

We are

The slightest bit bizarre

MARCY

But since the time is now

LEAF

Holy cow

LOGAINNE

We shal make a solemn vow

To concentrate

On winning

ALL

We concentrate on winning

At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

We speak so damn convincingly

MS. PERETTI

They're nervous but they're grinning

LOGAINNE, OLIVE

It seems

We're living out our dreams

BOY SPELLERS

Which is a very nice, very nice

Very very very nice

ALL

Very nice, very nice

Very very very nice

Very nice

Beginning

MS. PERETTI

25th Annual

SPELLERS

25th Annual

ALL

Putnam County

Spelling Bee!
