Transcript: Media Communications #2 | Mar 31, 1999

(music plays)

The opening slate pops up with a countdown timer from 10 seconds. A title reads “TVO’s Virtual Classroom. Get connected.” The “V” in “Virtual” is a tick, the “A” in “classroom” is an at sign with an extended loop that turns into a power cord with a plug at the end, and the first “O” in “classroom” is a spinning globe.

Next, a new slate shows a graphic of two hands, one on top of the other and reads “The ‘Virtual’ Talk Show!”

Missus UJ appears on screen. She’s in her forties, with shoulder-length curly blond hair. She’s wearing a black leather jacket over a black blouse and a necklace.

She says
HI, AND WELCOME BACK TO
LANGUAGE ALIVE WITH Mrs. U.J.
THIS IS DAY TWO OF THE
VIRTUAL TALK SHOW SERIES.
IN TODAY'S SHOW, YOU'RE
GOING TO ACTUALLY
PARTICIPATE IN A
VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
WHILE YOU ARE
WATCHING THE SHOW,
YOU WILL BE
THE AUDIENCE.
YOU WILL BE PREPARING
MEANINGFUL QUESTIONS
THAT YOU CAN CALL IN.
YOU WILL BE MEETING GUESTS
WHO WILL ACTUALLY BE
MY STUDENTS WHO WILL
BE PARTICIPATING
IN THE TALK SHOW.
AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE
REVIEWING AND ANALYZING
SOME VIDEO CLIPS.
AND I'M SURE YOUR TEACHERS
HAVE RUN OFF FOR YOU
THE WORKSHEET YOU NEED
TO HAVE IN FRONT OF YOU
DURING TODAY'S LESSON.
IT'S ALL ABOUT
DECONSTRUCTING VIDEO CLIPS.
NOW, JUST BEFORE WE GET
STARTED WITH OUR TALK SHOW,
I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A
GREAT IDEA TO REVIEW
THE VIRTUAL CHALLENGE
FROM DAY ONE, WHICH WAS,
I ASKED YOU TO LOOK
AT A TALK SHOW.
AND I'LL WAIT FOR SOME
CALLS TO COME ONLINE.
AND I'M LOOKING FOR THE
QUALITIES OF A TALK SHOW.
SO WHAT KIND OF THINGS
ACTUALLY HAPPEN ON A TALK SHOW?
SO CALL THOSE
IN RIGHT NOW,
AND WE'LL JUST REVIEW
A FEW OF THOSE
BEFORE WE GET STARTED.
DON'T FORGET TO
PUSH POUND 9 TO LOG ON.
WE NEED ALL OF YOU ON
THERE WITH US TODAY.
NOW, I KNOW WHEN
I WAS LOOKING AT
THE TV GUIDE, I
COULDN'T BELIEVE -
JUST WAITING FOR THAT
CALLER TO CALL IN,
I HAVE DOWN HERE, ON
THE GRAPHICS CAMERA,
A LIST OF ALL OF THE
TALK SHOWS THAT I JUST
QUICKLY RAN THROUGH
THE TV GUIDE.

A hand-written blue paper sheet shows scattered names. It reads: “Golf Talk Live, Larry King, Jerry Springer, Donny and Marie Osmond, Opra, Howie Mandel, Sally Jesse, Rosanne, Jenny Jones, Montel, News World, Geraldo, Rosie O’Donnell.”

She continues
AND I COULDN'T
BELIEVE HOW MANY
YOU WOULD HAVE
TO CHOOSE FROM.
SO IN TONIGHT'S HOMEWORK,
YOU ARE GOING TO BE
LOOKING AT STUDYING ONE OF
THESE REALLY CAREFULLY.
OKAY, SO WE HAVE
SOUTHWOOD PARK ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Diana says HELLO.

She says HI.

Diana says OH, NO.

She says
OH, THAT'S OKAY.
YOU CAN ANSWER
MY QUESTION.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?
HI, WHO'S THIS?

Diana says HI.

She says HI.
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?

Diana says DIANA.

She says HI, DIANA.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE
QUALITIES OF A TALK SHOW?
WHEN YOU LOOK AT A TALK
SHOW, WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Diana says LOTS OF GUESTS.

She says GOOD.
WHAT ELSE?
WHAT ARE THEY
TALKING ABOUT?

Diana says PROBLEMS.

She says PROBLEMS, OKAY.
SO IT MIGHT BE
PERSONAL.
OR IT MIGHT BE AN
IMPORTANT ISSUE WHERE
THE WHOLE TALK SHOW
IS ON ONE TOPIC.
ANYTHING ELSE?
WHO SORT OF LOOKS
AFTER THE TALK SHOW?

Diana says A HOST.

She says A HOST, GOOD.
AND THAT COULD BE
MALE OR FEMALE.
THERE ARE CERTAINLY
LOTS OF ALL OF THEM.
ANYTHING ELSE?

Diana says
YEAH, CATCHY TITLES,
AND FIGHTING NORMALLY
ON SOME SHOWS.

She says
SOME OF THEM HAVE
SOME FIGHTING.
WE'LL TRY NOT TO HAVE
THAT TODAY, OKAY?
ANYTHING ELSE?

Diana says I CAN'T THINK
OF ANYTHING ELSE.

She says OKAY.
SOMETIMES THEY
HAVE VIDEO CLIPS.
AND THAT'S SORT OF THE
FASHION OF THE ONE
THAT WE'RE GOING
TO LOOK AT TODAY.
OKAY, I KNOW YOU
DIDN'T CALL IN,
BUT I'M GLAD
YOU DID.
SO DON'T FORGET TO KEEP
ACTIVE AND CALL BACK
MANY TIMES TODAY.
OKAY, LET'S JUST LOOK
AT OUR FIRST SLIDE.

A slate on screen shows the drawing of a man, clean-shaven, with brown hair who wears a pink jacket, a white shirt and a green tie. A legend on top reads “Every talk show has an issue.”

She continues
AND I'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT THE TALK SHOWS THAT
YOU'RE GOING TO BE DOING,
AND THE ONES YOU ARE
GOING TO BE SEEING
TODAY AND ON FRIDAY.
ALL THESE TALK SHOWS ARE
GOING TO BE ABOUT AN ISSUE.
AN ISSUE THAT IS RELEVANT
TO THE AGE GROUP.
LET'S LOOK AT THE
NEXT SLIDE, ALSO,
WHICH TALKS ABOUT
KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE.

A new slate on screen reads “Know your audience...”

She continues
NOW, THE AUDIENCE
TODAY IS YOU.
SO GRADE 6, 7
AND 8 STUDENTS,
THAT'S THE AUDIENCE.
SO WE'VE TRIED TO
DESIGN A TALK SHOW
THAT IS RELEVANT TO YOU SO
YOU'LL HAVE SOME FEELINGS
ABOUT IT, AND YOU'LL BE ABLE
TO CALL IN WITH IMPORTANT
AND MEANINGFUL QUESTIONS
BECAUSE IT'S ALL ABOUT
YOU AND YOUR AGE GROUP.
SO THAT'S REALLY KEY.
KNOWING THE AUDIENCE,
AND TO HAVE
A REALLY
IMPORTANT ISSUE.
SO ISSUE-BASED IS
THE KIND WE'RE DOING,
EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IN
SOME OF THOSE SHOWS,
WE WON'T MENTION NAMES,
BUT THERE'S A LOT
OF PERSONAL THINGS
THAT COME UP.
I WANT YOU TO BE THINKING
ABOUT ISSUES THAT
ARE AFFECTING YOU AND THE
LIVES OF THE STUDENTS
IN YOUR SCHOOL.
AND YOU MIGHT CALL SOME
OF THESE IN LATER ON
IN THE SHOW, IF YOU HAVE
TIME, AND CERTAINLY
BE THINKING ABOUT
THEM FOR FRIDAY.
WHAT SORT OF ISSUES ARE
AFFECTING THE LIVES
OF THE STUDENTS IN
YOUR SCHOOLS?
BECAUSE THAT'S GOING
TO BE IMPORTANT
FOR DESIGNING YOUR OWN.
NOW, I WOULD LIKE
TO, FIRST OF ALL,
INTRODUCE MY PANEL.
AND THESE ARE MY STUDENTS
FROM WINDFIELDS JUNIOR HIGH.
THEY ARE ALL
GRADE 8 STUDENTS.
THIS IS KATIE AND JASON,
AND OVER HERE WE HAVE SASHA.

Katie has long dark brown hair in a ponytail and wears a red sweater with white and blue striped. Jason, next to her, has short dark hair and is clean-shaven. He wears a dark blue sweater with striped in lighter shades of blue. Sasha has curly long dark hair and wears a blue jacket over a light blue T-shirt and numerous accessories.

She continues
NOW, WE ARE GOING TO
DO - WE'RE CALLING IT
A VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
AND IT'S REALLY
A ROLE PLAY.
NOW, A ROLE
PLAY, YOU KNOW,
MEANS WHEN YOU
PLAY THE ROLE OF.
AND THEY ARE GOING TO BE
PRETEND TO BE VICTIMS
AND BULLIES BECAUSE THE
ISSUE WE THOUGHT WAS
REALLY IMPORTANT AT OUR
SCHOOL WAS BULLYING.
AND SO WE HAVE
PREPARED VIDEO CLIPS,
WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO SEE
ALL THESE KIDS AND
SOME MORE OF THE KIDS
IN OUR DRAMA CLASS.
THEY ARE GOING TO BE DOING
CLIPS THAT ARE ACTING OUT
SCENARIOS ABOUT BULLIES
IN REAL LOCATIONS
IN OUR SCHOOL.
I JUST WANT YOU TO
UNDERSTAND BEFORE
WE SWITCH INTO THE
VIRTUAL TALK SHOW,
THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY
JUST A ROLE PLAY.
IT'S MAKE BELIEVE, AND
AT THE END OF THE SHOW,
THEY'LL BE ABLE TO KIND
OF RELAX AND YOU MIGHT
MEET THEM AS
REAL PEOPLE.
BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT
REALLY VICTIMS AND BULLIES.
THEY ARE ACTUALLY
REALLY GREAT KIDS.
OKAY, SO THAT'S WHAT'S
HAPPENING ON THE TALK SHOW.
NOW, LET'S JUST TAKE
A LOOK AT THE SHEET
YOUR TEACHERS HAVE
RUN OFF FOR YOU,
AND THIS IS GOING TO
BE YOUR WORKSHEET.
BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING
TO BE DECONSTRUCTING,
TAKING APART SOME OF THE
CLIPS AS YOU SEE THEM.

She displays a new blue paper sheet with the title: “The ‘Virtual’ Talk Show Worksheet.” Next, categories are organized in charts: In the GYM, in the LOCKERS, in the HALL, in the CAFETERIA and in YOUR SCHOOL, respectively. She appears on a small window at the top, to the left the screen.

She continues
THE FIRST ONE YOU ARE
GOING TO SEE IS IN THE GYM.
AND YOU ARE GOING TO
MEET JASON AS A BULLY.
SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO
DO IN THE SPACE THAT
IS THERE IS DURING
THE CLIP, I WANT YOU
TO PREPARE A QUESTION.
SO AS SOON AS THE CLIP
IS OVER YOU CALL IN
IMMEDIATELY WITH A
MEANINGFUL QUESTION
TO ASK THE BULLY.
NOW, IN THE NEXT ONE, IN
THE LOCKER, FOR EXAMPLE,
YOU'LL MEET KATIE
AS A VICTIM.
AND I WANT YOU TO
PREPARE A VICTIM AND
A BULLY QUESTION
AND SO ON.
AND YOU'LL MEET SASHA
IN THE HALL, AND SO ON.
NOW, FOUR AND FIVE CAN BE
GENERAL QUESTIONS THAT
YOU WOULD PREPARE FOR
ANY VICTIM OR ANY BULLY.
AND ANY OF THE PANEL WILL
BE ABLE TO HELP YOU WITH THAT.
SO HERE WE GO.
NOW REMEMBER, IN YOUR
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
IN THE VIRTUAL CHALLENGE,
I ASKED YOU TO FILL OUT
THOSE CHARTS ON
VICTIMS AND BULLIES
AND REASONS FOR THAT.
SO YOU CAN USE THOSE
IN FRONT OF YOU,
PERHAPS TO PREPARE
SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS
FOR THE VICTIM AND
FOR THE BULLIES.
SO WE'RE GOING
TO SWITCH NOW.
WE'RE GOING TO PUT UP
A PLATE THAT SAYS
THE VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
AND AS SOON AS
THAT'S OVER,
WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH
INTO OUR ROLE PLAY.
AND REMEMBER,
YOU'RE THE AUDIENCE,
AND WE'RE THE
VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
SO GET READY.
[applause]

A new slate introduces the role playing. Once again, the text reads “The ‘Virtual’ Talk Show!”

She continues
GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME
TO THE VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
I'M Mrs. USHER-JONES,
AND I'M GOING TO BE
YOUR HOST TODAY.
AND ON THE PANEL WE HAVE
A NUMBER OF VICTIMS AND
BULLIES THAT YOU'RE
GOING TO BE ABLE TO MEET.
NOW, YOU'RE GOING TO
BE ABLE TO MEET THEM,
TO TALK TO THEM, TO
ASK THEM QUESTIONS,
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU
ARE GOING TO BE ABLE
TO WATCH THEM IN ACTION
IN CLIPS THAT WE ACTUALLY
TOOK IN OUR SCHOOL AT
WINDFIELDS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
NOW, WHAT I'D LIKE YOU TO
DO WITHOUT ANY FURTHER NOTICE,
WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK
AT THE FIRST CLIP.
HERE, YOU'RE GOING
TO MEET JASON,
OUR FIRST PANEL
MEMBER, IN ACTION.
LET'S SEE WHAT
HAPPENS TO JASON.

A clip on screen shows Jason and a group of boys do exercises during the basketball practice at school. The Coach is in his twenties. He has short dark hair and is clean-shaven. He wears blue jeans, a black T-shirt, a white towel and a whistle.

The Coach says
ON YOUR MARK,
GET SET, GO!
Jason falls repeatedly as his classmates continue to run. The Coach stops the exercise and talks to Jason.

The Coach says
OH, MY GOODNESS!
LEAVE HIM ALONE.
I WANT YOU TO
MAKE THE TEAM.
WORK REALLY HARD.
WHEN I SAY HARD,
I MEAN HARD.

Jason says
OKAY.

The Coach says
YOU WANT TO MAKE
THE TEAM, RIGHT?

Jason says
YEAH, DEFINITELY.

The Coach says
SO YOU BETTER
WORK HARD.

Jason says
I WILL, COACH,
I PROMISE.

The Coach says
NO FALLING
AND STUFF.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO
DO DRIBBLING SKILLS.
I WANT TO SEE HOW GOOD
YOU GUYS CAN DRIBBLE.
YOU'RE GOING TO
PLAY DEFENCE.
ALL RIGHT,
GREAT DEFENCE.

One of the classmates bends behind Jason as another one pushes him. Jason falls.

The Coach says
YOU PLAY BAD DEFENCE,
YOU CAN'T MAKE THE TEAM.
LET'S DO THIS.
COME ON.
WHAT DO YOU KEEP
FALLING FOR?

Jason says
I'M TRYING COACH.
I'M TRYING MY BEST.

The Coach says
YOU CANNOT
PLAY DEFENCE.

Jason says I AM.

The Coach says
YOU CAN'T DRIBBLE,
YOU CAN'T RUN,
YOU KEEP FALLING.
HOW ARE YOU GOING TO
MAKE THE TEAM, MAN?
YOU BETTER WORK HARD.
COME ON.

Jason says
I AM WORKING HARD.

As the rest of the team continues the practice, The Coach calls Jason for a private talk.

The Coach says JAY, LET ME
TALK TO YOU.

Jason says
YEAH, COACH?

The Coach says
I'M SORRY, BUT YOU JUST
CAN'T MAKE THE TEAM.
I'M SORRY.
YOU SEE HOW YOU WERE
RUNNING AND FALLING?
YOU CAN'T PLAY DEFENCE,
YOU CAN'T DRIBBLE,
YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING.
SO IF I PUT YOU ON THE
TEAM, I MIGHT LOSE.
I'VE GOT TO HAVE A
VERY STRONG TEAM.
BUT I'M SORRY, YOU
JUST CAN'T MAKE IT.
BUT I GOT ANOTHER
JOB FOR YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU COULD DO?
YOU COULD SERVE THE
WATER TO THE TEAM.

Jason looks frustrated.

The Coach continues
THEY'D BE HAPPY, MAN.
THEY'LL BE RUNNING
UP AND DOWN,
AND THEY'LL BE SO TIRED,
AND THEY'LL BE LIKE,
OH, I NEED WATER, MAN.
AND YOU'LL BE
RIGHT THERE.
YO, HERE'S THE WATER.
AND YOU COULD JUST
GIVE IT TO THEM.
SO THEY'LL HAVE ENERGY FOR
MORE PLAYING, ALL RIGHT?
SO BE HAPPY.
YOU'LL BE THE
WATER BOY.

The clip ends. Missus UJ appears back on the screen.

She says
OKAY, WE CAN GET
THOSE QUESTIONS READY
TO CALL IN FOR JASON.
JASON, THAT'S A VERY
UNFORTUNATE THING
THAT HAPPENED TO YOU.
SO ACTUALLY YOU GOT
CUT FROM THE TEAM?

Jason says YEAH.

She says
SO YOU DIDN'T
MAKE IT AT ALL?

Jason says NO.

She says
DO YOU THINK YOU COULD
HAVE MADE THE TEAM?

Jason says
I THINK I DEFINITELY
WOULD HAVE MADE IT.
I'VE PLAYED BEFORE,
AND I'M REALLY GOOD.
EVERYBODY SAYS THAT.

She says
OH, MY GOSH.
SO THERE'S AN
EXAMPLE OF A VICTIM.
WE'RE GOING TO CONNECT
TO SOME STUDENTS.
THEY'RE GOING TO CALL
IN SOME QUESTIONS
THAT ARE POINTED TOWARDS
YOU AS A VICTIM.
AND YOU'LL HAVE TO ANSWER
SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS.
KATIE, IS THAT HOW YOU
SEE JASON AT YOUR SCHOOL?
DO YOU SEE HIM AS A POOR,
UNFORTUNATE VICTIM?
Katie says NOT ALL THE TIME,
BUT SOMETIMES, YEAH.

She says
OH, YOU DO, YOU DO.
SO NOT ALL THE TIME.

Katie says NO.

She says
I GUESS WE'LL SEE A
LITTLE BIT MORE
ABOUT THAT ONE LATER.
OKAY, WE'RE STILL WAITING
FOR SOME STUDENTS
TO CONNECT WITH SOME
QUESTIONS FOR THE VICTIM.
SO DO THESE KIDS DO THIS
TO YOU ALL THE TIME, JASON?

Jason says JUST DURING
SPORTS AND STUFF.
I DON'T THINK THEY WANT
ME TO MAKE THE TEAM
OR SOMETHING.

She says
WELL, HAVE YOU DONE
SOMETHING TO THEM?
IS THERE A REASON FOR IT?

Jason says I DON'T THINK SO.

She says
SO THERE'S NO REASON YOU
CAN THINK OF OF WHY
YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN
TREATED THAT WAY.

Jason says
NONE I CAN THINK OF.

She says
AND YOUR TEACHER?
DID YOU THINK
THAT WAS FAIR?

Jason says
I MEAN, YOU HAVE TO
TRUST A TEACHER.
AND THEN WHEN SOMEONE
YOU TRUST DISRESPECTS
YOU LIKE THAT, I MEAN,
WHERE CAN YOU TURN?
YOU CAN'T.

She says MM-HMM.
WHAT, DO YOU THINK HE
COULD HAVE GIVEN YOU
A SECOND CHANCE?
YOU DIDN'T SEEM TO
ASK FOR ANYTHING.

Jason says
I TRIED, BUT HE JUST
SHUSHED ME EVERY TIME
I OPENED MY MOUTH.

She says OKAY.
OKAY WE HAVE A CALLER
FROM ST. JOHN BREBEUF.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Alex says HI.

She says COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Alex says YEAH, I'M ALEX.

She says OKAY, ALEX.
AND YOU HAVE A
QUESTION FOR JASON?

Alex says YEAH.

She says GO AHEAD.

Alex says
WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL THE
COACH WHAT HAPPENED?

Jason says I TRIED TO TELL HIM,
BUT AS I SAID BEFORE,
HE JUST SHUSHED ME EVERY
TIME I OPENED MY MOUTH.

She says OKAY, DOES YOUR
TELEPHONE PARTNER HAVE
A QUESTION FOR JASON?

Alex says NO, I DON'T THINK SO.

She says OKAY.
THAT'S A REALLY
GOOD QUESTION.
I GUESS I'M CONCERNED
WITH WHY YOU WOULDN'T
HAVE COME FORWARD AND
ASKED THE TEACHER?
LIKE, WERE YOU
REALLY AFRAID?
DID YOU THINK HE WOULD
THINK LESS OF YOU?

Jason says I'M NOT ONE
TO TATTLE.
I WASN'T RAISED
THAT WAY.
WELL, I KIND OF GOT
THE IMPRESSION
HE DIDN'T WANT ME TO
MAKE THE TEAM EITHER.

She says OH, REALLY?

Jason says HE SEEMED VERY
RUDE TO ME.

She says OKAY.
WE'RE GOING TO CONNECT
WITH SOUTHWOOD PARK.
HI, GOOD MORNING.
OKAY, WE'RE WAITING
FOR YOU, SOUTHWOOD.
YOU SEEMED SHOCKED.
WERE YOU SHOCKED
WHEN THAT HAPPENED?

Jason says YES, VERY.
I TRUST HIM, AND I EXPECT
HIM TO RESPECT ME.
I RESPECT HIM.

She says MM-HMM.
SO JUST OUT OF INTEREST,
DID YOU BECOME A WATER BOY?

Jason says NO.
I HAVE MY DIGNITY.
I'M NOT GOING
TO HELP THEM.

She says
SOUTHWOOD PARK, IF YOU
COULD CALL THE HELP LINE,
THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
SO YOU DECIDED NOT
TO BE THE WATERBOY.


Jason says NO.

She says OKAY.
SO YOU WERE THE VICTIM,
YOU STAYED THE VICTIM,
SO THAT'S THE
WAY YOU LEFT IT.
OKAY, WE HAVE ST.
JOHN BREBEUF ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.
PICK UP YOUR PHONE.

Adam says HELLO.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Adam says YEAH, I'M ADAM.

She says HI, ADAM.

Adam says I HAVE THE SAME
QUESTION ALEX DID.

She says OKAY.
DID YOU WANT TO
SAY IT AGAIN?
LET'S REPEAT IT AND SEE
IF WE GET A DIFFERENT ANSWER.

Adam says
WHY WOULDN'T YOU TELL
THE COACH WHAT HAPPENED,
AND TRY TO EXPLAIN WHAT
THE BOYS WERE DOING TO YOU?

Jason says
WELL, EVERY TIME I OPENED
MY MOUTH, HE SHUSHED ME.
AND I GUESS HE DIDN'T
WANT ME TO MAKE
THE TEAM EITHER, WHICH
IS REALLY UNFAIR.
'COS, I MEAN, YOU HAVE
TO TRUST YOUR TEACHERS.
AND IF THEY DON'T
RESPECT YOU,
THEN WHERE CAN YOU TURN?

She says
OKAY, THANKS FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
WE HAVE THE
PINES ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Mike says HI.

She says
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Mike says I'M MIKE.

She says HI, MIKE.
AND YOUR QUESTION
FOR JASON?

Mike says
DID YOU TALK TO THE GUYS
THAT ARE PUSHING YOU?

Jason says
NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
I THINK THEY JUST
WOULD HAVE TRIED TO
BEAT ME UP IF I DID.
AND I LIKE MYSELF, SO I'M
NOT GONNA GO GET BEAT UP
OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
I'M NOT GONNA RISK IT.

She says OKAY.
NOW, KATIE, YOU SAY THAT'S
NOT HOW YOU SAW JASON, OKAY?
COMING UP NEXT IS A CLIP
WITH KATIE AND JASON IN IT.
AND I WANT YOU TO ANALYZE
THE VICTIM AND THE BULLY.
YOU CAN PREPARE A
QUESTION FOR BOTH
THE VICTIM AND THE BULLY.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

A new video plays. A girl in school closes her locker. It’s Kim. She has short straight blond hair down to the shoulders and a black striped red sweater.

Kim says
OH YEAH, BILLY TALKED
TO ME YESTERDAY.

Two older girls appear. They both have dark hair and wear black sweaters.

Girl 2 and Girl 3 say
BILLY?
WHAT ABOUT MICHAEL?

Girl 2 says
YOU'RE GONNA END
UP LIKE BRITTANY.

Girl 3 says
SHE'S GOT SOME
MIXED UP FEELINGS.

Girl 2 says
YEAH, WHAT SHE SAID.

Katie was with them.

She says
LISTEN GUYS, I GOTTA
GO GET MY LUNCHBOX.

Girl 2 says
OKAY, BYE.

Kim says
BUT THE THING IS, I'M
NOT BRITTANY, I'M KIM.

Girl 2 says
JUST BE CAREFUL.

Kim says
OH, MY GOD, I'M GONNA
BE LATE FOR CLASS.

Girl 2 says
BYE.

Girl 3 says I SEE YOU GOT
YOUR HAIR STREAKED.

Girl 2 says
YEAH, I GOT IT DONE.
I HAD TO BEG MY
PARENT, THOUGH.
YOU SHOULD GET
IT DONE, TOO.

Girl 3 says
YOU THINK?

Girl 2 says YEAH.

Next, Katie is on her way when she finds Jason with her lunch box.

Katie say
EXCUSE ME, WHAT DO YOU
THINK YOU'RE DOING WITH THAT?

Jason says NOTHING.

Katie says IT'S MY LUNCH BOX.

Jason says
WELL, COME AND GET IT.

Katie says
IT'S MINE, FATTY.

Jason says I'M NOT FAT,
IT'S GLANDULAR!
YOU DON'T TALK TO
ME VERY OFTEN!

Katie says
WHAT DO YOU THINK
YOU'RE DOING?

Jason says IT'S RIGHT HERE.
COME AND GET IT.
Katie suddenly kicks Jason, takes her lunch box back and runs.

Jason looks pissed.

He exclaims AH!
WATCH YOUR BACK, GIRL.

Girl 2 says
YOUR NAILS LOOK GOOD.
OH, MY GOSH.

Girl 2 says SHH.
SHE'S IN A BAD MOOD.

Katie enters the classroom. The teacher is at her desk. She’s blond, her hair is tied and she wears black trousers and a pink shirt.

The Teacher says
GIRLS, SHH.
SILENT READING.
KATIE, YOU'RE LATE FOR
THE THIRD TIME THIS WEEK.
START YOUR READING.

The class continues the activity while a paper sheet travels one hand onto the other, seat by seat.

The Teacher says
KATIE, WHAT'S THAT?
THAT'S A NOTE
IN YOUR HAND.
PASSING NOTES IN CLASS,
PUT IT RIGHT HERE
ON MY DESK AND GO
TO THE OFFICE!

Katie leaves the room. When she’s out, Jason awaits by the door. He catches her. He holds a knife.

Katie says
HELP!

Jason says
SO HOW DOES IT FEEL TO
HAVE A KNIFE TO YOUR THROAT?

Katie says
WILL SOMEBODY
LISTEN TO ME?

Girl 2 and Girl 3 come out of the class and witness the scene. They look shocked.

The clip ends.

Missus UJ says OH, SO I SEE,
KATIE, WHAT YOU MEAN.
AND WE'RE GOING TO GET
THOSE QUESTIONS READY.
VICTIM AND BULLY
QUESTIONS.
I SEE WHAT
YOU MEAN.
THAT'S A VERY DIFFERENT
JASON THAT WE SAW
IN THIS SECOND CLIP.
AND JASON, I'M SURE THE
AUDIENCE OUT THERE
IS GOING TO BE ASKING
YOU, PERHAPS,
SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT
HAPPENED TO YOU.
THAT'S REALLY,
REALLY DIFFERENT.
OKAY, WE HAVE SAINT
JOHN BREBEUF ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Chris says GOOD MORNING.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Chris says I'M CHRIS.

She says HI, CHRIS.
AND YOUR QUESTION, IS IT
DIRECTED TO THE VICTIM
OR THE BULLY?

Chris says THE VICTIM.

She says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Chris says
HOW DO YOU FEEL TOWARDS
BEING THE VICTIM
IN THIS SITUATION?

The Victim says
WELL, I FELT AWFUL
BECAUSE NOBODY SHOULD EVER
STEAL ANY OF
YOUR THINGS,
IN THAT SITUATION,
MY LUNCHBOX.
AND NOBODY SHOULD
DEFINITELY GRAB YOU
BY THE HEAD AND PUT
A KNIFE TO YOUR BACK
BECAUSE IT'S
JUST AWFUL.

She says WOW.
DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION
FOR THE - OKAY, OKAY.
WE'LL CONNECT WITH
ANOTHER SCHOOL.
THAT MUST HAVE REALLY
SCARED YOU, KATIE.
I'M REALLY, REALLY
SURPRISED, JASON.
THAT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT
PERSONALITY WE SAW.
WE HAVE THE
PINES ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Michael says HI.

She says
GOOD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Michael says MICHAEL.

She says
AND YOUR QUESTION
IS DIRECTED TO
THE VICTIM OR
THE BULLY?

Michael says VICTIM.

She says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Michael says WHY DID YOU
CALL HIM A NAME?

The Victim says
BECAUSE HE WAS
STEALING MY LUNCH BOX,
AND I SAID CAN YOU
PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME.
AND HE JUST WOULDN'T
GIVE IT TO ME.
SO I GUESS I WANTED TO
GET HIM BACK IN A WAY.

Michael says
AND MY PARTNER
HAS A QUESTION.

She says GREAT, OKAY.

Mike says IT'S MIKE.
IT'S FOR THE BULLY.

She says TO THE BULLY,
OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Mike says
DID YOU GET IN A LOT OF
TROUBLE FOR PULLING
A KNIFE ON HER?

The Bully says
NO, 'COS NOBODY SAW IT.
I GOT AWAY WITH IT.

Mike says OH.

She says WOW.
WOW.
IT'S A GOOD THING WE KNOW
THIS IS A ROLE PLAY, RIGHT?
OKAY, WE'RE CONNECTING
WITH ANOTHER STUDENT.
I REMEMBER YOU SAYING,
WHAT WAS YOUR LAST
LINE IN THAT CLIP?

The Victim says
WILL SOMEBODY
PLEASE LISTEN TO ME.

She says OKAY.
WE HAVE SAINT JOHN
BREBEUF ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Joy says
GOOD MORNING.

She says
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Joy says I'M JOY.

She says HI, JOY.
AND WHO IS YOUR
QUESTION DIRECTED TO?

Joy says THE BULLY.

She says THE BULLY.
GO AHEAD.

Joy says
I HAVE A QUESTION.
WHY DID YOU HAVE
TO DO THAT TO HER?

The Bully says
WELL, IT WASN'T FAIR.
I DIDN'T GET TO DO
SOMETHING I LOVE,
WHICH IS BASKETBALL, SO
WHY SHOULD SHE LIKE,
I DON'T SEE WHY I SHOULDN'T
TAKE HER LUNCHBOX.
LIKE, LIFE ISN'T FAIR.
IT'S NOT FAIR FOR ME,
WHY SHOULD IT BE
FAIR FOR HER?

She says
WHY DIDN'T YOU
JUST ASK THE COACH
WHEN IT WAS A
BETTER TIME?

The Bully says
LIKE I SAID, I DON'T
THINK HE WANTED ME
TO BE ON THE TEAM.
HE WAS VERY RUDE TO
ME, AND SHUSHED ME
EVERY TIME I
OPENED MY MOUTH.

She says
OKAY, DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE A QUESTION
FOR THE VICTIM
OR THE BULLY?
AND WE HAVE THE
PINES ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.
GOOD MORNING?
PICK UP YOUR PHONE.
GOOD MORNING?
ARE YOU THERE?
OKAY, WE'LL CONNECT.
OKAY, SAINT JOHN BREBEUF.

Sarah says HI.

She says
HI, COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Sarah says I'M SARAH.

She says HI, SARAH.
AND YOUR QUESTION IS
DIRECTED TO BULLY, VICTIM?

Sarah says THE BULLY.

She says GREAT, OKAY.
GO AHEAD.

Sarah says OKAY, WHY DID
YOU BULLY KATIE?
WHAT DID YOU
HAVE AGAINST HER?

The Bully says
I DON'T KNOW, I WAS
JUST LOOKING FOR
SOMETHING TO TAKE.
I WAS PRETTY MAD ABOUT
THAT BASKETBALL INCIDENT,
SO I FIGURE I MAY AS WELL
GET MY FRUSTRATIONS
OUT ON SOMETHING.

Sarah says OH, OKAY.

She says OKAY.
AND DID YOU HAVE A
QUESTION FOR KATIE?

Sarah says NO.

She says DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE A QUESTION?

Sarah says
DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION?
NO.

She says OKAY, THANK YOU.
WE'LL TAKE ONE MORE CALLER
BEFORE WE LOOK AT
OUR NEXT CLIP.
KATIE, WHEN YOU SAID WOULD
SOMEONE PLEASE LISTEN,
LIKE, WHAT WOULD
YOU DO AFTER THAT?
WHAT WOULD BE
THE NEXT STEP?
YOU'RE THE VICTIM, THIS
HAS HAPPENED TO YOU,
WHERE DOES A
VICTIM GO FOR HELP?

The Victim says
WELL, I'D PROBABLY GO
TO SOMEBODY I TRUST.
EITHER A PARENT,
A TEACHER.
SOMEBODY THAT CAN
ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING
TO HELP OUT, I GUESS.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
BEING THAT I WAS THE
TEACHER IN THAT CLASSROOM,
I HOPE YOU WOULD
COME TO ME.
OKAY, WE HAVE
THE PINES ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Sarah says HI.

She says COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Sarah says I'M SARAH.

She says HI, SARAH.
AND WHO IS YOUR
QUESTION DIRECTED TO?

Sarah says THE VICTIM.

She says GO AHEAD.

Sarah says
DO YOU THINK IT WOULD
HAVE BEEN BETTER
IF YOU HADN'T
CALLED HIM A NAME?

The Victim says
MAYBE, BUT I GUESS -
LIKE IT SLIPPED OUT
OF MY MOUTH BECAUSE I
WAS MAD AT HIM
FOR STEALING SOMETHING.
BUT HE SHOULDN'T HAVE
TAKEN MY LUNCHBOX
IN THE FIRST PLACE.

She says OKAY.
OKAY.
WE'RE GOING TO
MOVE ON NOW.
KEEP CALLING IN BECAUSE
THIS IS FABULOUS.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO
MEET OUR THIRD GUEST.
BEFORE WE DO MEET SASHA,
GUEST NUMBER THREE,
AND SHE'S DEFINITELY
THE SCHOOL BULLY,
I WANT YOU TO TAKE A
LOOK AT THIS CLIP
WHERE YOU SEE HER IN ACTION AS
A SCHOOL BULLY IN THE HALL.
TAKE A LOOK.

A new clip on screen shows a girl, sitting down, writing on her diary. She has long straight hair and wears glasses, blue jeans, a black sweater and matching sneakers. She plays The Victim.

The Victim says DEAR DIARY.
TODAY WAS THE SAME
AS EVERY OTHER DAY.
IT WAS AWFUL.
I CAN'T TALK TO MY FRIENDS
BECAUSE THEY SEEM
TO BE AVOIDING ME EVER SINCE
I'VE STARTED BEING PICKED ON.
AND IT'S NOT AS IF I
CAN TALK TO MY PARENTS
OR ANYTHING.
THIS WOULDN'T BE SO HARD
IF I HAD SOMEONE TO TALK TO.
I'M AFRAID IT'S ONLY
GOING TO GET WORSE,
AND I DON'T THINK
I CAN HANDLE IT.
BUT I MUST ADMIT, TODAY
WAS THE WORST DAY YET.

Next, The Victim meets two other girls by the lockers.
[chattering]

The Victim says
HI.

Girl 1 and Girl 2 say
HI.

The Victim says
HOW ARE THINGS GOING?
Girl 2 says
FINE.

The Victim says
I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU
GUYS IN A WHILE.

Girl 1 and Girl 2 say
BUSY.

The Diary Girl says
DOING WHAT?

Girl 2 says PARTYING.

Girl 1 says HOMEWORK.
STUFF.

Girl 2 says
YEAH, JUST STUFF.
WE HAVE TO GET
TO CLASS, SORRY,
WE'RE GONNA BE LATE.

The two girls leave for class. Once they’re gone, The Bully comes in. She pushes The Victim who ends up on the floor. The Bully comes along with two girls her age. They’re bigger and taller.

The Bully says YUCK.
WELL, WELL, WELL,
GIRLS, LOOK WHO IT IS.

Bully 2 says
LITTLE Miss PERFECT.

The Bully says DID I TELL
YOU TO SPEAK?

The Bully picks up a little green bag from the floor. It belongs to The Victim.

Bully 3 says EW, THAT'S
SO TACKY.

The Bully takes things from inside the bag and let them drop.

The Victim says I HAVE TO GO
TO CLASS.

The Victim tries to find a way to escape, but the bullies are keeping her trapped.

The Bully says YOU'RE NOT
GOING ANYWHERE.

A Teacher comes by and says
YOU BETTER
HURRY UP GIRLS,
OR YOU'RE GOING TO
BE LATE FOR CLASS.

The Bully says
SORRY, WE'RE JUST
HAVING A FRIENDLY CHAT.

The Victim says I... I... I...

The Teacher says
ARE YOU TRYING TO
SAY SOMETHING?

The Victim says NO.

The Teacher says
OKAY, WELL,
HURRY UP THEN.

The Bully says
YOU AND ME,
AFTER SCHOOL.
DON'T BE LATE.

After threatening her, The Victim is released. Next, she’s back on writing on her diary.


The Victim says
THANK GOODNESS THEY DIDN'T
CATCH ME AFTER SCHOOL.
WHO KNOWS WHAT WOULD HAVE
HAPPENED IF THEY HAD.
ALL THIS WOULD BE SO MUCH
EASIER IF ONLY
I HAD SOMEONE I
COULD TALK TO.
BUT I DON'T.
I WISH SOMEONE WOULD
JUST LISTEN TO ME.


The clip ends. Missus UJ appears on screen sitting next to Sasha, The Bully.

She says WOW, THIS IS - I'D
LIKE YOU TO MEET SASHA,
THE BULLY IN
THAT CLIP.
THAT WAS QUITE A
BULLYING INCIDENT
THAT WE JUST EXPERIENCED
THERE, SASHA.
AND I'M SURE SOME OF
THE CALLERS OUT THERE
ARE GOING TO BE CALLING
IN AND FINDING OUT
JUST WHAT MAKES YOU
TICK AS A BULLY.
OKAY, WE HAVE A CALLER
FROM THE PINES.

Gillians says HI.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Gillian says I'M GILLIAN.

She says HI.
GO AHEAD.

Gillian says I HAVE A QUESTION
TO THE BULLY.

She says GREAT, GO AHEAD.

Gillian says WHY DID YOU DO
WHAT YOU DID TO HER?
WHAT DO YOU HAVE
AGAINST HER?

The Bully says
WELL, SHE'S KIND OF LIKE,
THIS IMAGE OF PERFECTION.
AND THAT REALLY
KIND OF BUGS ME.
IT'S KIND OF LIKE
MY PET PEEVE.
SO I WENT AFTER HER.

She says OKAY, DID THAT
ANSWER YOUR QUESTION?
OR DID YOU WANT TO
FURTHER THAT QUESTION?

Gillian says I'M DONE.

She says OKAY.
DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE
A QUESTION FOR SASHA?
I GUESS NOT.
WE'LL CONNECT
WITH SOMEONE ELSE.
GEE, THAT WAS -- NOW,
I SORT OF NOTICED
A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR
PERSONALITY, SASHA.
I SEE YOU IN THE
HALL WITH THE KIDS,
AND THEN WHEN THE
TEACHER CAME ON,
I SAW A VERY
DIFFERENT YOU.
WE HAVE SAINT JOHN
BREBEUF ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.
Joy says GOOD MORNING.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Joy says I'M JOY.

She says HI, JOY.
AND YOUR QUESTION
TO SASHA?

Joy says
I WAS WONDERING, WHY
DON'T YOU THINK THAT -
WHY DON'T YOU THINK
YOU'RE BETTER THAN HER?

The Bully says
I DON'T NECESSARILY THINK
I'M BETTER THAN HER,
I JUST DON'T LIKE THE
FACT THAT PEOPLE SEE HER,
OR SHE SEES
HERSELF AS PERFECT.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH ME THINKING
THAT I'M PERFECT
IN ANY WAY.

Joy says
SO WHY DON'T YOU THINK OF
YOURSELF GOOD LIKE THAT?

The Bully says I THINK OF
MYSELF WELL.
I KNOW NOBODY'S
PERFECT.
AND IT JUST BUGS ME
THAT PEOPLE THINK
OF OTHERS AS PERFECT.
IT'S LIKE MY
PET PEEVE.

Joy says SO DO YOU HAVE
SOMETHING AGAINST HER,
OR ARE YOU JUST JEALOUS?

The Bully says
NO, FOR THAT REASON, I
HAVE SOMETHING AGAINST HER.
AND THERE COULD
BE A LITTLE BIT
OF JEALOUSY IN THAT.

Joy says OKAY.

She says OKAY, THANKS
FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY, WE HAVE ANOTHER
CALLER ONLINE.
HI, WE HAVE
SOUTHWOOD ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Mike says HELLO.

Joy says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Mike says MIKE JEFFREY.

Joy says OKAY.
AND YOUR QUESTION IS
DIRECTED TO SASHA?

Mike says OKAY.

Joy says GO AHEAD.

Mike says THIS IS FOR BOTH
OF THE BULLIES.
DO YOU GUYS GET A RUSH OUT
OF THE BEATING UP KIDS
AND STUFF LIKE THAT?
AND BULLYING THEM AROUND?

She says OKAY, SASHA,
YOU ANSWER FIRST,
THEN WE'LL GO
TO JASON.

Sasha says IT'S NOT A RUSH.
WELL, I MEAN, IT COULD
BE, BUT I WOULDN'T
NECESSARILY SAY I GO AND
DO IT BECAUSE
I WANT TO HAVE
THIS BIG RUSH.

She says OKAY.
AND JASON?
DO YOU GET A
RUSH OUT OF THIS?

Jason says
WELL, I MUST ADMIT,
IT IS KIND OF FUN,
BUT I'M JUST DOING IT
BECAUSE I DON'T
THINK IT WAS FAIR.
BUT IT'S NOT BAD.
I DON'T FEEL
BAD ABOUT IT.

She says
THANK YOU FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
THAT WAS A REALLY
GOOD QUESTION.
WHY DO YOU DO THIS?
IF IT HADN'T OF HAPPENED
TO YOU IN THE GYM,
DO YOU THINK YOU STILL
WOULD HAVE DONE THAT?

Jason says I DON'T THINK SO.
I MEAN BECAUSE IT WASN'T
FAIR WHAT HAPPENED TO ME
IN THE GYM, SO IT
SHOULDN'T BE FAIR FOR HER.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
THAT'S GOOD.
OKAY, WE HAVE
HOMELANDS ON THE LINE.

Lee says HELLO.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Lee says
LEE, FROM HOMELANDS.

She says HI, LEE.
AND YOUR QUESTION
IS DIRECTED TO?

Lee says SASHA.

She says GO AHEAD.

Lee says
I WAS WONDERING, WHY
WERE YOU PICKING ON HER?
WHAT DID SHE DO TO YOU?
OR WERE YOU JUST, LIKE,
JEALOUS BECAUSE
IT LOOKS LIKE THAT.
LIKE YOU WERE JEALOUS?

Sasha says IT WASN'T THAT
I WAS JEALOUS.
AND SHE HASN'T DONE
ANYTHING TO ME DIRECTLY.
AGAIN, IT'S JUST BECAUSE
I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE
WHO VIEW THEMSELVES
AS PERFECT.

SO YOU DON'T
LIKE WHO SHE IS.
YOU DON'T LIKE WHO
SHE STANDS FOR.

Sasha says YEAH.

She says I SEE.
OKAY, DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE A QUESTION,
WHILE WE HAVE YOU ONLINE?

Lee says NO.

She says OKAY, THANK YOU.
THANKS FOR CALLING IN.
OKAY, WE'LL CONNECT
WITH THE NEXT PERSON.
WE HAVE ST. JOHN
BREBEUF ONLINE.


Adam says HELLO.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Adam says THIS IS ADAM.

She says HI, ADAM.
AND YOUR QUESTION IS
DIRECTED TO SASHA?

Adam says YES.

She says GO AHEAD.

Adam says
I JUST HAVE A QUESTION.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN
BULLIED BEFORE?
IS THAT WHY YOU FEEL YOU NEED
TO GET BACK AT PEOPLE?

Sasha says
NO, I'VE NEVER BEEN
BULLIED BEFORE.

Adam says
AND THE SECOND PART
OF THE QUESTION,
DO YOU FEEL YOU HAVE
TO GET BACK AT PEOPLE?
WHAT'S YOUR REASON?

Sasha says
I MEAN, AGAIN BECAUSE
OF THE PERFECT THING.
AND THEN, I DON'T
KNOW, SHE'S THERE.

She says OKAY.
IS IT THE SAME
PERSON ALL THE TIME?
WE'LL CONNECT WITH
ANOTHER CALLER.
THANKS FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
IS IT ALWAYS HER OR IS
IT JUST HER THAT DAY?

Sasha says SHE'S MAINLY THE
PERSON I TEND TO GO FOR.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
DOES SHE EVER TATTLE
OR RAT ON YOU?

Sasha says NO, SHE HASN'T.
AND NO ONE'S EVER BEEN
THERE TO SEE ANYTHING,
SO I JUST CONTINUE.

She says OH, SO YOU'VE
NEVER BEEN CAUGHT.
NOBODY EVER GOES
AFTER YOU THEN.
THAT'S INTERESTING.
OKAY, WE HAVE
THE PINES ONLINE.
GOOD MORNING.

Lisa says HELLO.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Lisa says MY NAME IS LISA.

She says HI, LISA.

Lisa says
CAN I ASK A QUESTION
TO THE VICTIM?

She says SURE.

Lisa says WHY DIDN'T SHE TELL
ANYBODY WHAT HAPPENED?

She says
WHY DIDN'T YOU
TELL ANYBODY?
SORRY, THE VICTIM.

The Victim says
I DIDN'T HAVE A LOT
OF TIME BECAUSE I WAS
ALREADY LATE FOR CLASS.
AND THEN I COULDN'T
EXACTLY GET BY
THE BULLY AFTER HE PUT
A KNIFE TO MY BACK.
SO I DIDN'T HAVE TIME.

Lisa says OKAY.

She says DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE A QUESTION?

Lisa says NO.

She says OKAY, WE'LL TAKE
ONE MORE CALLER,
THEN WE'RE GOING TO MOVE
ON TO OUR NEXT EXCITING CLIP.
OKAY, WE HAVE
SOUTHWOOD PARK ONLINE.

HELLO.

She says HELLO, PICK UP
THE PHONE, PLEASE.
WE'RE HERE.
HELLO, SOUTHWOOD.

Stephanie says HELLO.

She says HI, GO AHEAD.

Stephanie says
MY NAME IS STEPHANIE.

She says HI, STEPHANIE.
HOW ARE YOU?

She says GOOD, THANK YOU.
AND YOUR QUESTION
IS DIRECTED TO?

Stephanie says THE BULLY.

She says OKAY, THE BULLY.
SASHA.

Stephanie says
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
YOU'RE SO TOUGH?
LAYOFF.

She says OKAY, WHAT MAKES YOU
THINK YOU'RE SO TOUGH?

Sasha says
WELL, IT'S NOT THAT
I THINK I'M TOUGH.
I MEAN, THEY JUST,
ALL OF A SUDDEN,
PEOPLE JUST THOUGHT
I WAS ABOVE THEM,
WHICH ONLY GAVE ME
LEVERAGE TO DO THIS.
SO IT'S NOT THAT I
WENT ALL OF A SUDDEN,
OH, I'M SO MUCH
BETTER THAN YOU,
AND I'M GOING TO
START BULLYING YOU.
IT'S THAT THEY SAW
ME AS THIS PERSON
THAT'S ABOVE THEM.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
THANKS.
NOW, HOLD THOSE
QUESTIONS.
WE'LL BE ABLE TO COME BACK
TO ANY OF THE BULLIES
AND VICTIMS THAT ARE OUR
GUESTS IN JUST A MOMENT.
WE'RE GOING TO
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK.
NOW, THESE TWO CLIPS THAT
YOU'RE GOING TO SEE,
THE NEXT ONE TAKES
PLACE IN A WASHROOM.
AND WHILE YOU'RE VIEWING
AND ANALYZING THIS CLIP,
MAKE UP A QUESTION FOR
A BULLY, FOR A VICTIM,
OR IF THEY WERE
A FRIEND OF.
AND YOU CAN ASK
ANY OF THE PANEL,
AND THEY WILL ANSWER
THESE QUESTIONS FOR YOU.
SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK
IN THE WASHROOM.

A new clip plays. A group of girls walk down the hallway at school. they spot Wendy, The Victim.

Amy, The Bully says
LOOK, IT'S WENDY.
I'M GONNA TRIP
HER.
LET'S DO IT.

Wendy says HI, GUYS.

Wendy trips and ends up on the floor.

The Bully says
LOSER.
WATCH IT.
YOU ALMOST BROKE
MY NAIL.

The Bullies are retouching their make up in the toilet.

Bully 2 says
AMY, THAT WAS AWESOME
WHAT YOU DID TO
WENDY IN THE HALL.
IT WAS SO FUNNY.

Amy says I KNOW.
SHE DIDN'T EVEN
SEE ME COMING.

Bully 3 says I KNOW.
SHE'S SUCH
A LOSER.

Bully 2 says
SHE JUST LIKE TRIPS
RIGHT OVER YOU.
YOU THINK SHE'D SEE
SOMEONE LIKE WALKING IN A ROW.

Amy says
TOMORROW I'M GOING TO
DO IT TO HER AGAIN
WHEN EVERYONE'S AROUND.
PROBABLY AT LUNCH.

A new girl shows up.
She says EXCUSE ME.

Amy says THAT'LL BE SO GOOD.

The Girl repeats EXCUSE ME.
MOVE!

Bully 2 says RUDE.
WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?

Amy says
ARE YOU GUYS THINKING
WHAT I'M THINKING?

Bully 2 and bully 3 say MAKEOVER.

The Bullies trap the girl and start putting make up on her and doing her hair.

The Girl says LET GO.
STOP IT!
LEAVE ME ALONE!
STOP.
I DON'T WANT
YOU TO TOUCH ME.
LEAVE ME ALONE!
I DON'T LIKE YOU,
DON'T TOUCH ME!

Bully 2 says
GIVE ME YOUR LIPS.

The Girl says NO!
STOP IT!
GO AWAY.

Bully 3 says OH, YOU LOOK
SO GOOD.
AWESOME.
IT'S PERFECT.

The Girl says CAN I LOOK IN
THE MIRROR?

Bully 2 says NO.
IT'LL RUIN THE IMAGE.

Amy says GO OUTSIDE AND
JUST SHOW IT OFF.

The clip ends.

Missus UJ appears on screen.

She says OOH, THAT'S
PRETTY WICKED.
JUST A REMINDER, IF
ANYONE TUNED IN
A LITTLE BIT LATE.
WE'RE JUST DOING A
ROLE PLAY ON HERE.
THESE SCENARIOS ARE KIDS
THAT HAVE DESIGNED THESE.
THEY ARE JUST
ACTING THESE OUT.
AND OUR GUESTS ARE NOT
ACTUAL VICTIMS OR BULLIES.
NOW YOUR QUESTION CAN COME
INTO ANYONE ON PANEL.
I GUESS IT WOULD BE
INTERESTING TO FIND OUT
WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN RICKY,
WHO IS OUR VICTIM
IN THAT STORY,
WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED
TO HER WHEN SHE LEFT.
I THINK SHE HAD A WHOLE
DIFFERENT FEELING
ABOUT WHO HER
FRIENDS WERE.
OKAY, WE HAVE A
CALLER FROM HOMELANDS.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Brad says HI.
I'M BRAD FROM
HOMELANDS.

She says HI, BRAD.
IS IT A BULLY OR
VICTIM QUESTION.

Brad says FOR THE BULLY.

She says
OKAY, SO ANY OF THE
BULLIES CAN ANSWER.

Brad says WHY DID YOU TRIP HER?
LIKE IN THE PREVIOUS SKIT?

She says OKAY.
WHY DID YOU TRIP HER?
ARE YOU DIRECTING
IT TO JASON?
OH, I SEE, IN THE
PREVIOUS SKIT.
WHY DO YOU THINK
THEY TRIPPED RICKY?
JASON, YOU CAN
ANSWER THAT QUESTION?
WHY DID THEY TRIP
HER IN THE HALL?

Jason says WELL, THEY JUST
LIKE TO PICK ON HER,
AND I GUESS THEY
FIND IT A LOT OF FUN.

She says OKAY.
WHY DO YOU THINK
THEY TRIPPED HER?

Sasha says I THINK THE SAME
REASON, BASICALLY.

She says THEY WANTED TO MAKE HER
FEEL STUPID, PROBABLY, EH?
OKAY, OKAY.
WE'LL TAKE ANOTHER
QUESTION ON THAT LAST CLIP.
KATIE, HOW DO YOU THINK
THAT RICKY FELT
WHEN SHE WANDERED DOWN
THE HALL AFTER THAT?
IF WE COULD HAVE GONE A
LITTLE FURTHER IN THAT CLIP,
WHAT DO YOU
THINK HAPPENED NEXT?

Katie says
WELL, I'M SURE SHE THOUGHT
THAT IT LOOKED GOOD
AT FIRST, AND
THEN SHE PROBABLY -
A LOT OF PEOPLE PROBABLY
STARTED TO LAUGH
AND TALK BEHIND HER
BACK AND POINT AT HER,
AND THEN SHE REALIZED
IT WAS A JOKE,
AND IT LOOKED
PRETTY BAD.

She says YEAH.
SHE'D FEEL PRETTY
BADLY ABOUT THAT, EH?
PRETTY EMBARRASSING IN
A JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
OKAY, WE HAVE
A PINES ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Sarah says HI.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Sarah says I'M SARAH.

She says HI, SARAH.
AND WHO IS YOUR
QUESTION DIRECTED TO?

Sarah says SASHA.

She says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Sarah says WHY DID YOU
CALL HER PERFECT?
AND DON'T BE MEAN BECAUSE
MEAN PEOPLE ARE LOSERS.

She says OKAY.

Sasha says UM, IT'S JUST THAT
SHE GETS GOOD GRADES.
SHE JUST KIND OF DRESSES
IN THIS VERY PERFECT WAY,
I GUESS.
AND PEOPLE VIEW
HER AS PERFECT.
LIKE YOU HEAR IN THE
HALLS ALL THE TIME,
OH, SHE GOT ANOTHER A,
STUFF LIKE THAT.
AND I DON'T KNOW,
THAT'S BASICALLY WHY
I VIEW HER AS PERFECT.

She says OKAY, GOOD.
GOOD ANSWER.
THANK YOU FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
WE HAVE SOUTHWOOD
PARK ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Andrew says HI.

She says COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Andre says HI, I'M ANDREW.

She says ANDREW, HI.
DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION
ABOUT THE LAST CLIP
IN THE WASHROOM?

Andrew says YES.

She says OKAY.
GO AHEAD.

Andrew says WHEN THEY ARE
IN THE HALL,
IF SHE DIDN'T
SEE THE PEOPLE,
WHY DID THEY
BUMP INTO HER?

She says WHY DID THEY
BUMP INTO HER?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO
ANSWER THAT, KATIE?
WHY DO YOU THINK THEY
BUMPED INTO RICKY
AND KNOCKED HER OVER?

Katie says WELL BECAUSE THEY
JUST DON'T LIKE HER.
AND THEY SHOWED IT BY
GIVING HER A MAKEOVER,
AND BY TRIPPING HER
JUST FOR SOME REASON
THEY DON'T LIKE HER.

She says OKAY, GOOD,
THANK YOU.
WE HAVE HOMELANDS
ONLINE.
HI, GOOD MORNING.

Gabe says HI, MY NAME IS
GABE FROM HOMELANDS.

She says DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION
ON THE LAST CLIP?

Gabe says
I WAS WONDERING IF THE
BULLIES WERE JEALOUS OF
THE GIRL THEY TRIPPED?

She says OKAY.
JASON, WHAT DO YOU
THINK ABOUT THAT?

Jason says I DON'T THINK
THEY WERE JEALOUS.
SHE REALLY LOOKS LIKE
PRETTY MUCH OF A LOSER,
AND THEY JUST WANT TO
MAKE HER LOOK EVEN
STUPIDER THAN
SHE ALREADY IS.
THEY WANT TO
EMBARRASS HER.

She says THAT'S SO SAD
WHEN THAT HAPPENS.
THAT'S SO SAD.
OKAY, WE HAVE ONE MORE
CALL ON THAT CLIP,
AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO
MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE.
WE HAVE THE PINES,
GOOD MORNING.

Amber says HI, I'M AMBER
FROM THE PINES.

She says HI, GO AHEAD.

Amber says THIS IS FOR
SASHA AND JASON.

She says GO AHEAD.

Amber says OKAY, WHY DO
YOU BULLY PEOPLE?
DO YOU THINK IT MAKES YOU
COOL, 'COS IT DOESN'T?
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PUSH
PEOPLE AROUND TO BE POPULAR?

She says DID YOU HEAR THAT?
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PUSH
PEOPLE AROUND TO BE POPULAR?
YOU THINK IT'S
COOL, BUT IT ISN'T.
AND YOU'RE RIGHT.
GO AHEAD.

Jason says WELL, I DON'T HAVE TO
PUSH PEOPLE AROUND TO BE
POPULAR, I'M JUST DOING
IT BECAUSE I WAS TREATED
VERY UNFAIRLY DURING
BASKETBALL TRYOUTS,
AND I FEEL ANYBODY ELSE
SHOULD BE TREATED
AS UNFAIRLY AS I WAS.

She says OKAY, AND SASHA?
I THINK SHE WAS DIRECTING
IT TO YOU, TOO.

Sasha says WELL, I MEAN, I BULLY
HER ALSO BECAUSE
I HAVE SOMETHING THAT
BUGS ME ABOUT HER.
BUT I MEAN, IF PEOPLE HANG
OUT WITH ME BECAUSE
THEY THINK IT'S COOL THAT
I GO BULLY PEOPLE, WELL,
THAT'S NOT SOMETHING I
TRY AND DIRECT TO MYSELF.
THEY JUST COME AND HAPPEN
TO HANG AROUND ME
BECAUSE THEY
THINK IT'S COOL.

Amber says
I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION,
AND MY PARTNER
HAS A QUESTION, TOO.

She says GREAT, GO AHEAD.

Amber says THIS IS A QUESTION
FOR THE VICTIM.
HE HELD A KNIFE TO YOU.
WHY ARE YOU
SITTING BESIDE HIM?

She giggles and says OH.
WE SHOULD HAVE
PROBABLY PUT HER ON
THE OTHER SIDE,
YOU'RE RIGHT.

Katie says YEAH, IT WASN'T
EXACTLY MY CHOICE.

She says DID YOU EVER
RESOLVE THE PROBLEM?
DID IT EVER GET RESOLVED?

Katie says SORT OF.
LIKE HE APOLOGIZED 'COS HE
SHOULDN'T HAVE STOLEN IT,
AND HE SHOULDN'T HAVE
PUT A KNIFE TO MY BACK.
BUT I'M STILL PRETTY
MAD HE DID THAT.

She says YOU CALLED OUT, WOULD
SOMEONE PLEASE LISTEN.

Katie says YEAH.

She says WHERE DID YOU GO
FOR HELP AFTER THAT?

Katie says WELL, I WENT TO MY
PARENTS, OR A TEACHER,
AND I ASKED THEM
WHAT I SHOULD DO.
HOW TO RESOLVE
THE PROBLEM.

She says OKAY.
WE'LL TALK TO YOUR
TELEPHONE PARTNER IF YOU WISH.

The Caller says HI.

She says HI, GO AHEAD.

The Caller says THIS IS FOR JASON.

She says GREAT, GO AHEAD.

The Caller says
WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S
RIGHT TO MAKE YOUR LIFE
UNFAIR, JUST
BECAUSE YOURS IS?

Jason says WELL, I JUST
FEEL IT IS.
I MEAN, WHY
SHOULDN'T I?

The Caller says BECAUSE IT'S MEAN.

Jason says
WELL, AS EVERYBODY
SAYS, LIFE'S UNFAIR.
IF IT'S UNFAIR FOR ME, IT
SHOULD BE UNFAIR FOR HER.

The Caller says SO?

She says OKAY, WE HAVE A
CALLER FROM SOUTHWOOD.
THANKS FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
AND WE'LL TAKE ONE MORE
CALL BEFORE WE LOOK
AT THE NEXT CLIP.

The Caller says HELLO?

She says HI, GO AHEAD.
GO AHEAD.
AND YOUR QUESTION IS
ABOUT THE LAST CLIP?

The Caller says IT'S FOR JASON.

She says JASON, GO AHEAD.

The Caller says WHY WOULD HE BULLY
SOMEONE WHEN HE KNOWS
WHAT BULLYING IS LIKE?
WHAT IT FEELS LIKE?

She says COULD YOU JUST
REPEAT IT?

The Caller says OKAY.
WHY WOULD YOU BULLY ON
SOMEONE IF YOU KNOW WHAT
IT FEELS LIKE TO
BE BULLIED ON?

She says OH, OKAY.
THAT'S A VERY
GOOD QUESTION.
WHY WOULD YOU BULLY
SOMEONE IF YOU KNOW
WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.
SO YOU WERE THE VICTIM,
THEN YOU WERE THE BULLY.
THAT'S A REALLY
GOOD QUESTION.
OKAY, WE'LL
ANSWER THAT ONE.

Jason says WELL, I DO KNOW
WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.
AND IT FEELS BAD.
SO IF SOMEBODY
MADE ME FEEL BAD,
I THINK I HAVE THE RIGHT
TO MAKE SOMEBODY
ELSE FEEL BAD.
She says
HMM, THAT'S A PRETTY
TOUGH ONE TO ARGUE.
OKAY, THANKS FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
THAT CERTAINLY GIVES US
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT THERE.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO TAKE
A LOOK AT OUR LAST CLIP.
THIS TAKES PLACE IN A
SCHOOL CAFETERIA, OKAY?
IT'S UNFORTUNATE IN ALL OF
THESE CLIPS THERE WASN'T
REALLY ANYBODY AROUND
TO OBSERVE THEM.
TAKE A LOOK, GET A
QUESTION READY
FOR A VICTIM, A BULLY, OR
IF YOU WERE A FRIEND OF.
TAKE A LOOK.

A new clip introduces a new scenario. Two girls are having lunch and talking.

Girl 1 says
SO HOW DO YOU THINK YOU
DID ON THAT MATH TEST?

Girl 1 says I THINK I DID
PRETTY GOOD.

A group of four girls join the cafeteria. As they enter, they see the two girls sitting at a table.

The Bully says
OH, MY GOSH, THEY'RE
SITTING AT OUR TABLE.

Bully 2 says OH, MY GOSH.

Bully 3 says EXCUSE ME, THIS IS OUR
TABLE YOU'RE SITTING AT.

Girl 1 says OH, WE'RE SO SORRY.
WE DIDN'T KNOW.

Girl 2 says LET'S GO SIT
OVER THERE.

The two girls look for a new space.

Girl 1 says
NO BECAUSE THEN WE'D
HAVE TO PASS THEM,
AND THEY'RE
SO MEAN TO US.
I KNOW THEY'LL
SAY SOMETHING.

Girl 2 says WELL, WE HAVE
TO PASS THEM.
IF WE GO QUICKLY,
THEY WON'T SEE US.
COME ON.

The Bully says HEY, COME SIT
WITH US.
YEAH.

The two girls join the bullies at the table.

Girl 1 says WE'RE SORRY
ABOUT BEFORE.

Bully 2 says THAT'S OKAY.
WE'RE NOT IN A
BITE OR ANYTHING.

Bully 3 says SMARTIES?
SURE.

Girl 1 says THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.

Girl 2 says THANKS.

Bully 4 says OH, I REALLY
LIKE YOUR SHIRT.
WHERE'D YOU GET IT?

Girl 1 says OH, MY GRANDMA
KNITTED IT FOR ME.

Bully 4 spills a cup of soda on Girl 1’s shirt.

She exclaims OH, I'M SO SORRY.

Girl 1 says I'M JUST GONNA
GO WASH THIS OFF.

Girl 2 was standing up to help her friend with the incident, but one of the bullies stops her.

Bully 2 says PLEASE, STAY.

Girl 2 says OKAY.

Bully 3 says WE'RE YOUR
NEW FRIENDS.
YOU DON'T NEED HER.

Bully 2 says DO YOU WANT A CHIP?

Girl 2 says THANKS.

Girl 1 comes back.

She says LISE, I'M NOT
FEELING SO GOOD.
DO YOU WANT TO GO OUTSIDE
FOR SOME FRESH AIR?

Girl 2 says NO, I THINK I'M GONNA
STAY WITH MY NEW FRIENDS.

Girl 1 insists BUT, LISE.

Girl 2 says NO, GO AWAY,
GOODBYE.

Girl 1 says WHAT DID I DO
TO DESERVE THIS?
THEY'RE SUCH BULLIES,
THEY TOOK MY BEST FRIEND.

The clip ends. Missus UJ appears back on the screen.

She says BULLIES CAN
BE SO MEAN.
WE JUST KEEP SEEING IT
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
IT REALLY IS A SERIOUS
ISSUE, ISN'T IT?
NOW, I KNOW THAT SOME
OF YOU ARE HAVING
A LITTLE BIT
OF AN ECHO.
I KNOW YOU'RE HAVING A
LITTLE BIT OF A PROBLEM,
BUT DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT,
WE'LL TRY TO GET
TO ALL OF YOU.
OKAY, WE HAVE
THE PINES ONLINE.
HI, GO AHEAD.

Cir says HI.


She says COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Cir says I'M CIR.

She says HI.
AND WHO IS YOUR
QUESTION DIRECTED TO?
A VICTIM?

Cir says THE BULLY.

She says OKAY.
GO AHEAD.

Cir says WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF A
GROUP OF PEOPLE CAME INTO
THE WASHROOM WHEN YOU'RE
GOING TO THE WASHROOM,
PICKED YOU UP AND PUT
YOUR HEAD IN THE TOILET?

She says HMM, WHAT
WOULD YOU DO?
HOPEFULLY THAT
WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.

Json says TO BE HONEST, I'D
PROBABLY FIRST
START SWINGING
AT THEM.
AND MAYBE IF
THAT DIDN'T WORK,
I'D GO TELL SOMEBODY.

OKAY, THANKS FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
OKAY, WE HAVE
SOUTHWOOD PARK ONLINE.
GO AHEAD.

Diana says HI.

She says HI.
COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Diana says DIANA.

She says GREAT.
DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION
ON THE LAST CLIP?

Diana says FOR ALL THE
BULLIES UP THERE.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU STOP
MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE?
YOU COULD JUST AS
EASILY BE MADE FUN OF.
IF YOUR FRIENDS HANG OUT
OF YOU 'COS YOU'RE
A BULLY, WHAT
HAPPENS THEN?

She says OKAY.
SASHA, COULD
YOU ANSWER THAT?

Sasha says
WELL, I MEAN, I DON'T
REALLY FEEL THAT
I NEED FRIENDS.
LIKE, IT'S GOOD
THAT I HAVE FRIENDS,
BUT I DON'T REALLY FEEL
THEY'RE A NECESSITY FOR ME.

She says OKAY.
DO YOU WANT TO
ANSWER THAT, JASON?

Jason says WHO NEEDS FRIENDS?
I DON'T HAVE ANY FRIENDS,
AND I GET ALONG FINE.
FRIENDS WILL JUST COME
STAB YOU IN THE BACK ONE DAY.

She says OH, DEAR.
THAT'S AN UNFORTUNATE
ATTITUDE, JASON.
OKAY, WE HAVE THE
HOMELANDS ONLINE.

Ahmed says HI.
I'M AHMED KHAN
FROM - SHOULD I SAY IT?
OKAY, I'M HIS PARTNER.
MY QUESTION IS FOR
ANY OF THE BULLIES.

She says OKAY.

Ahmed says
WHY WOULD YOU DO
SOMETHING SO MEAN TO
SOMEONE WHEN YOU
KNOW HOW IT FEELS?

She says OKAY.
VERY GOOD QUESTION.
WHY WOULD YOU DO SOMETHING
SO MEAN TO SOMEONE
WHEN YOU KNOW
HOW IT FEELS?

Jason says
WELL, YOU'RE RIGHT.
I DO KNOW HOW IT FEELS.
IT FEELS AWFUL.
SO IF THEY MADE
ME FEEL AWFUL,
WHY SHOULDN'T I
MAKE HER FEEL AWFUL?

She says OKAY.
DOES YOUR TELEPHONE
PARTNER HAVE A QUESTION
WHILE WE HAVE YOU THERE?

Ahmed says YEAH, JUST A SEC.

She says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Courtney says THIS IS COURTNEY.

She says GREAT.

Courtney says
THESE ARE ALL TO
ANY OF THE BULLIES.
WHY WERE YOU ONLY
PICKING ON THE GIRL
WITH THE KNITTED
SWEATER?

She says OKAY.
SO WHY ONLY THE
KNITTED SWEATER GIRL?
LOOK WHAT
HAPPENED TO ALICIA,
THE FRIENDS TOOK HER.
DO YOU WANT TO
ANSWER THAT ONE?

Sasha says
I THINK THEY MOST LIKELY
THOUGHT ALICIA COULD
BE PART OF THEIR GROUP.
LIKE, COULD MOST LIKELY
ADAPT TO PART OF THEIR GROUP.
AND, YOU KNOW, SOME OF
THEM MIGHT HAVE LIKED THEM.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
KATIE, WHAT DO YOU
THINK ABOUT THAT?

Katie says
I THOUGHT IT WAS AWFUL
BECAUSE A FRIEND SHOULDN'T
JUST LEAVE ANOTHER FRIEND
LIKE THAT JUST TO BE
PART OF A POPULAR GROUP.
SO IT WAS AWFUL.

She says THAT WAS.
IT WAS REALLY
AWFUL FOR HER.
WE HAVE THE PINES
ONLINE, GO AHEAD.

Lisa says HELLO.

She says HI, COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Lisa says THIS IS LISA.

She says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Lisa says THIS IS FOR EVERYBODY.

She says GREAT, OKAY.

Lisa says WHY DO YOU THINK HER
FRIEND STAYED WITH
THE OTHER PEOPLE INSTEAD
OF GOING WITH HER?

She says GREAT, SO WHY DID
ALICIA THEN STAY?
WOULD YOU LIKE
TO ANSWER THAT?
LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY
ANSWER THAT BECAUSE
THAT'S A GOOD ONE, AND
THEN WE'LL END
OUR VIRTUAL TALK
AND MOVE ON.
JASON, WHAT
DO YOU THINK?

Jason says
WELL, MAYBE SHE JUST
THOUGHT THEY WERE COOLER,
AND THEY WOULDN'T
PICK ON HER ANYMORE
IF SHE BECAME
THEIR FRIENDS.
IF YOU CAN'T BEAT
'EM, JOIN 'EM.

She says OKAY, KATIE,
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Katie says PRETTY MUCH
THE SAME THING.
JUST BECAUSE SHE WANTED
TO BE PART OF THE
POPULAR GROUP, AND SHE DIDN'T
WANT TO BE PICKED ON EITHER.

She says OKAY.
SASHA, WHAT DO
YOU THINK?

Sasha says BASICALLY THE
SAME THING.
SHE PROBABLY FELT IT
WAS BETTER FOR HER
IF SHE WENT AND
JOINED THEM.
MAKE HER LIFE A
LITTLE BIT EASIER.

She says AND POOR JENNIFER.
THERE SHE WAS, HER BEST
FRIEND JUST DITCHED HER
RIGHT THERE IN THE
SCHOOL CAFETERIA.
WELL, THERE
YOU HAVE IT.
THERE WE ARE GOING TO END
OUR VIRTUAL TALK SHOW.
AND NOW WE ARE GOING
TO GET OUT OF ROLE,
AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE
ABLE TO TALK AND MEET WITH
ALL THREE OF THESE
KIDS WHO ARE ACTUALLY
FABULOUS KIDS, AND
THEY ARE NOT VICTIMS,
AND THEY ARE NOT BULLIES.
SO ANY OF YOUR
QUESTIONS NOW,
YOU COULD CALL IN AND
ASK ANY OF THE PANEL,
MAYBE ON WHAT IT
FELT LIKE ACTUALLY
PLAYING THAT ROLE
OF BEING A BULLY.

A new blue paper sheet on screen introduces a new task. The top reads “Deconstructing Talk Shows.” Following, there’s a list with information required and the blanks to write on. She appears on a small window on the top left corner of the screen.

She continues
NOW, JUST WHILE WE'RE
WAITING FOR YOU TO CONNECT,
YOUR HOMEWORK,
YOUR TEACHER SHOULD
HAVE RUN THESE
OFF FOR YOU.
IT'S CALLED DECONSTRUCTING
TALK SHOWS.
THIS IS THE VIRTUAL
CHALLENGE FOR TODAY.
YOU'RE THE CRITIC.
AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE
WATCHING ONE OF THE MANY,
MANY SHOWS TONIGHT
OR TOMORROW NIGHT,
AFTER SCHOOL,
WHENEVER YOU CAN,
AND THERE IS THE FORM
YOU HAVE TO FILL OUT
THAT INCLUDES THE TIME
IT'S ON, THE AUDIENCE,
SOME OF THE ISSUES
THAT ARE TACKLED.
I WANT YOU TO SKETCH
AND LABEL A SET,
SO YOU HAVE AN IDEA
HOW TO SET IT UP.
AND THEN YOU'RE
GOING TO RATE IT.
AND RATE IT IN
A CERTAIN WAY.
AND THEN DISCUSS WHY YOU
GAVE IT THAT RATING.
SO THERE'S YOUR
VIRTUAL CHALLENGE.
AND WE CAN TAKE
A FEW MORE CALLS.
AND REMEMBER, WE'RE
OUT OF ROLE NOW,
SO WE HAVE
HOMELANDS ONLINE.
HI, GO AHEAD.

Courtney says
HI, I'M COURTNEY.

She says HI, COURTNEY.
IS IT A GENERAL
QUESTION?

Courtney says
ARE THESE FOR
THE SKITS?

She says YEAH, YOU CAN STILL
CONTINUE TO ASK THEM,
BUT THEY'LL ANSWER THEM
MAYBE NOT BEING SO BAD,
'COS THEY'RE REALLY
NOT LIKE THAT.

Courtney says
THESE ARE FOR ANYBODY.
HOW DID YOU GUYS ALL
FEEL DOING THESE ROLES?

She says GOOD.
VERY GOOD QUESTION.
THAT'S A GENERAL
QUESTION.
WE'LL START
WITH YOU.
KATIE, HOW DID YOU FEEL
DOING THE VICTIM ROLE?

Katie says
I LIKED IT, BUT NOW I
KNOW HOW IT FEELS
TO BE A VICTIM, LIKE HOW
BAD IT IS TO HAVE
SOMEBODY PICK ON YOU.

She says WE LEARNED A LOT.
WE DID A WHOLE UNIT
ON BULLYING IN DRAMA.
AND WE DEALT
WITH THE ISSUE.
WE DEALT IT WITH FOR A
LONG TIME, DIDN'T WE?
AND WE WENT THROUGH
SEVERAL ROLE PLAYS
WHERE EVERYONE GOT
TO EXPERIENCE
ALL KINDS OF PARTS.
IT'S REALLY FUN.
WE REALLY, REALLY
GOT INTO IT.
BOY, WE'RE SURE LOOKING AT
IT DIFFERENTLY AREN'T WE,
AT WINDFIELDS JUNIOR
HIGH SCHOOL ABOUT
THE SERIOUSNESS
OF BULLIES.
OKAY, HOW DID
YOU FEEL, JASON,
BEING THAT VICTIM AND
BULLY THAT YOU PLAYED?

Jason says
WELL, I FELT A LOT WORSE
BEING THE BULLY THAN
THE VICTIM BECAUSE KATIE
IS MY GOOD FRIEND,
AND I REALLY DIDN'T LIKE
PUTTING HER THROUGH THAT.

She says OKAY, GOOD, GOOD.
AND SASHA, HOW
DID YOU FEEL?
YOU PLAYED QUITE A ROLE
OF A VICTIM WHEN
YOU CAME OUT IN THE
HALL AND SAID, YUCK.
I THOUGHT, MY
GOODNESS, SASHA,
WHAT'S HAPPENED TO YOU?
HOW DID YOU FEEL?

Sasha says
IT WAS QUITE A CHANGE
BECAUSE I'M NOT
REALLY LIKE THAT.
BUT I KIND OF FELT GUILTY
BECAUSE YOU COULD
REALLY SEE THE FEAR
IN NOREEN'S EYES.
SO IT KIND OF MADE ME
FEEL A LITTLE GUILTY.
SO I KIND OF KNOW HOW IT
MIGHT FEEL TO BE A BULLY.

She says YEAH.
THAT WHOLE SKIT WITH
HER AT THE LOCKER,
EVERYBODY DIDN'T SEEM TO
WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH HER.
FIRST OF ALL THE GIRLS AT
THE LOCKER WERE TRYING
TO GET RID OF HER, AND
THEN YOU WERE HORRIBLE.
IMAGINE HOW SHE
WOULD HAVE FELT?
THAT WAS SUCH A
GOOD ROLE PLAY.
THAT WAS A VERY GOOD
QUESTION TO CALL IN.
AND WE CERTAINLY ALL
HAD FEELINGS BECAUSE
THEY'VE PLAYED THAT
ROLE NOW, AND WE LOOK
AT THE OTHER SIDE.
NOW, WE HAVE ST.
JOHN BREBEUF ONLINE.

Joy says HELLO.

She says
HI, COULD YOU INTRODUCE
YOURSELF, PLEASE?

Joy says JOY.

She says HI, JOY.
AND YOU HAVE A GENERAL
QUESTION ABOUT
VICTIM AND BULLIES?

Joy says I HAVE A QUESTION
FOR THE BULLIES.
AS YOUR ROLES, WAS
THERE SOMETHING GOING
ON AT HOME THAT MADE
YOU DO THIS?

She says OKAY, IF YOU
BACK IN ROLE,
WAS THERE SOMETHING GOING
ON AT HOME - YOU SAID,
I DON'T NEED FRIENDS,
I DON'T NEED PEOPLE,
WOULD THAT HAVE
BEEN A REASON?

Sasha says MOST LIKELY, IT COULD
HAVE BEEN SOMETHING
THAT COULD HAVE HELPED
ME WANT TO BE A BULLY.

She says OKAY.

Sasha says
PART OF MY UPBRINGING
THAT MADE ME KIND OF
DISLIKE PERFECT PEOPLE,
AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
WE CAN TAKE A
FEW MORE CALLS,
AND THEN I KNOW YOU'RE
GOING TO HAVE TO LOG OFF.
OKAY, SO WE HAVE
THE PINES COMING.
I WANT TO THANK, JUST
WHILE WE'RE WAITING,
ALL OF SASHA AND
KATIE, AND JASON,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
COMING ONLINE TODAY
AND BEING WITH US.
YOU DID A GREAT JOB.
AND YOU REALLY PORTRAYED
THOSE ROLES REALLY,
REALLY WELL.
HI, WE HAVE THE
PINES, GOOD MORNING.

Lisa says HELLO.

She says HI, GO AHEAD.

Lisa says IT'S LISA.
THIS IS FOR
EVERYBODY.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A
SPOT WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN
BULLIED OR SOMETHING
BEFORE LIKE YOU PLAYED?

She says OKAY, GOOD.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN
IN THE SPOT THAT
YOU PLAYED TODAY?
MAYBE NOT WITH A KNIFE,
BUT IN A VICTIM OR
BULLYING SITUATION?
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN IT?

Katie says
WELL, THERE HAS BEEN SOME
PEOPLE AT OUR SCHOOL THAT
JUST HAVE DISLIKED ME AND
SOME OF MY OTHER FRIENDS
SINCE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL,
AND WHO SOMETIMES
MAKE FUN OF ME OR WHATEVER,
BUT I JUST TRY NOT
TO LISTEN TO IT.

She says OKAY.
SO THAT'S YOUR WAY, IS YOU
JUST SORT OF IGNORE IT.
AND I THINK YOUR TEACHERS
HAVE SOME ANSWERS
TO SOME OF THOSE ON
THE SHEETS WE GAVE,
WHAT TO DO IF YOU
ARE BEING BULLIED.
AND THAT'S A GOOD ONE,
IS TO JUST IGNORE.
OKAY, JASON,
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
HAVE YOU EVER
BEEN OR SEEN?

Jason says
LUCKILY, I'VE NEVER BEEN
IN A BULLYING SITUATION
WHERE I WAS A VICTIM,
THE BASKETBALL INCIDENT.
BUT I HAVE BEEN A VICTIM
IN THE WAY SASHA BULLIED
NOREEN, WHERE PEOPLE
JUST PUSH YOU AROUND.
BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN
A BULLY EITHER.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
SASHA, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
OR BEEN IN ANY OF THOSE?

Sasha says
I HAVE BEEN A VICTIM.
LIKE YOUNGER, I'VE
BEEN A VICTIM.
AND I THINK PEOPLE
WHO HAVE BULLIED ME,
I THINK I HAVE
BULLIED THEM BACK,
WHICH IS THE
WRONG THING TO DO.
BUT I THINK I HAVE BEEN
IN BOTH SITUATIONS.

She says SURE, OKAY.
SO IT'S HAPPENING
AROUND US.
WE JUST HAVE TO KNOW
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT,
AND WE HAVE TO
TRY AND STOP IT.
THAT'S THE KEY THING.
OKAY, WE HAVE A CALLER
FROM HOMELANDS ONLINE.

Gabe says IT'S GABE.

She says HI, GABE.
YOU HAVE A
GENERAL QUESTION?

Gabe says
YEAH, FOR THE FIRST SKIT,
YOU KNOW HOW THE BULLY
PULLED A KNIFE
ON THAT GIRL?

She says HOW JASON PULLED
IT ON KATIE?

Gabe says
I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW HE
SAID THAT NO ONE SAW IT,
BUT THOSE TWO GIRLS
LOOKED OUT THE DOOR,
AND WHY DIDN'T THEY
GET A TEACHER
TO HELP THEIR FRIEND?

She says OKAY, OKAY.
JASON, GO AHEAD
WITH THAT.

Jason says I GUESS IF THE
SKIT DID CONTINUE,
THEY PROBABLY WOULD HAVE
FOUND THE TEACHER INSIDE
THE CLASSROOM AND TOLD
HER WHAT HAD HAPPENED.

She says
BUT THERE WASN'T ANYONE
THAT ACTUALLY OBSERVED
LIKE A TEACHER
SEEING IT THEN.

Jason says
NO, AUTHORITY FIGURES.

She says OKAY, OKAY.
I KNOW SOME OF YOU
HAVE TO SIGN OFF,
BUT WE WILL STAY FOR
A LITTLE BIT LONGER.
IF YOU HAVE TO GO, THEN
WE'LL SEE YOU ON FRIDAY,
AND WE'LL REALLY LOOK
FORWARD TO ACTUALLY
SEEING SOME TALK SHOWS
WITH THESE KIDS IN THEM.
BUT WE WILL STAY FOR A FEW
MINUTES AND GET SOME
OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
IF YOUR TEACHERS LET YOU,
SO WE'LL TAKE ANOTHER CALL
FROM ST. JOHN BREBEUF.

Melissa says
HI, THIS IS MELISSA.

She says HI, MELISSA.

Melissa says I HAVE A QUESTION
FOR THE BULLIES.

She says GREAT, GO AHEAD.

Melissa says
WHY DO THEY PICK ON
PEOPLE YOUNGER THAN THEM,
OR SMALLER?

She says OKAY.
JASON, MAYBE YOU CAN
TRY THAT ONE, FIRST.

Jason says WELL, IT WAS JUST
COINCIDENCE THAT
I WAS LOOKING THROUGH
HER LUNCH BAG,
AND IT HAPPENED
TO BE KATIE.

She says SO IT WASN'T
A SIZE THING?

Jason says NO.

She says OKAY.
WHAT ABOUT
YOU, SASHA?

Sasha says
THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE
THE SAME FOR ME, TOO.
IT WAS COINCIDENCE.

She says DO YOU FEEL YOU
EVER GET PICKED ON,
KATIE, BECAUSE YOU'RE A
LITTLE SMALL FOR YOUR AGE?

Katie says
NOT EXACTLY PICKED
ON, BUT I GUESS,
MADE FUN OF A BIT
BY SOME PEOPLE.
BUT LIKE I DON'T
EXACTLY GET BULLIED
JUST BECAUSE OF MY SIZE.

She says
YOU'RE PRETTY FEISTY,
I THINK, SOMETIMES.
SO I CAN'T SEE HOW
THAT WOULD HAPPEN.
OKAY, WE HAVE
THE PINES ONLINE.
HI, GO AHEAD.

The Caller says HELLO?

She says HI, GO AHEAD.

The Caller says
IT'S FOR SASHA,
I GUESS.

She says OKAY.

The Caller says DID YOU WANT TO PLAY
THE BULLY IN THE THING?

Sasha says WELL, I KIND OF
GOT PLACED IN IT,
BUT I REALLY DID, ONCE WE
STARTED DISCUSSING
THE IDEAS AND EVERYTHING,
IT WAS SOMETHING
I REALLY WANTED TO DO.
I WANTED TO PLAY
THE PART OF.

She says SO YOU KIND OF
ENJOYED IT THEN.

Sasha says YEAH, IT WAS
A LOT OF FUN.

She says YEAH, YEAH.
OKAY, GOOD.
THANK YOU FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
WE CAN STILL TAKE
A FEW MORE CALLS.
YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S
REALLY IMPORTANT
TO HAVE THAT FEELING OF
WHAT IT MUST BE LIKE
TO BE THE VICTIM.
CERTAINLY, IT CAUSED A
LOT OF KIDS TO NEVER WANT
FOR THAT TO HAPPEN
AGAIN, DIDN'T IT?
OKAY, WE HAVE ST.
JOHN BREBEUF ONLINE.
PLEASE INTRODUCE
YOURSELF.

Catherine says HI, I'M CATHERINE.

She says HI, GO AHEAD.
HI.

Catherine says
OKAY MY QUESTION IS,
AFTER PLAYING THE ROLES,
WOULD YOU EVER BULLY?

She says THAT'S A VERY
GOOD QUESTION.
OKAY, SO SASHA, WOULD
YOU EVER BULLY
AFTER PLAYING THAT
ROLE IN THE ROLE PLAY?

Sasha says NO.
I THINK I WOULD FEEL
MUCH TOO GUILTY.
BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE IT
IN THEIR BODY ACTION
AND THEIR EYES, HOW
SCARED THEY ARE.
AND I JUST
COULDN'T DO THAT.

She says OH, I'M SURE YOU
COULDN'T, SASHA.
KNOWING YOU, I
KNOW YOU COULDN'T.
HOW ABOUT
YOU, JASON?

Jason says
WELL, I DEFINITELY
WOULDN'T.
PARTLY BECAUSE OF
SASHA'S REASON,
AND PARTLY BECAUSE,
WHAT IF WE GROW UP AND
SHE GETS BIGGER THAN ME,
I COULD BE IN TROUBLE.

She says
OR MAYBE SHE HAS A
BIG BROTHER, RIGHT?
OKAY, WE HAVE
HOMELANDS ONLINE.
HI, GO AHEAD.

Stephen says I'M STEPHEN
FROM HOMELANDS.

She says
OKAY, HI, STEPHEN.
GO AHEAD WITH
YOUR QUESTION.

Chris says
HI, THIS IS CHRIS
FROM HOMELANDS.
WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW IS
HOW THE ACTORS WOULD
LIKE TO GIVE ADVICE TO
THEIR CHARACTERS,
WHAT THEY WOULD TELL THEM
TO DO IF THEY MET SOMEONE
WHO MET THEIR CHARACTER?

She says OKAY, THAT'S A VERY
GOOD ONE, CHRIS.
WE'RE GOING TO MAKE THAT
THE LAST CALL OF THE DAY.
THANK YOU FOR
CALLING THAT IN.
OKAY, SASHA?

Sasha says
LIKE HOW WOULD
THEY REACT?

She says
YES, IF YOU MET SOMEONE
WITH THAT KIND
OF A CHARACTER, WHAT
WOULD YOU DO ABOUT IT?
IF YOU MET THAT
TYPE OF A PERSON?

Sasha says
WELL, I DON'T THINK I'D
HANG AROUND THEM AT ALL.
I'D TRY TO AVOID THEM
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

She says OKAY.
THAT'S A GOOD ANSWER.
HOW ABOUT YOU, JASON?

Jason says I'D DEFINITELY
AVOID THEM.

She says OKAY.
AND WOULD YOU
ALERT PEOPLE?
WOULD YOU LET STAFF AND
SO ON KNOW THIS KIND
OF THING WAS HAPPENING IF
YOU MET A CHARACTER LIKE THAT?

Jason says IF I WITNESSED HIM OR
HER DOING SOMETHING,
I PROBABLY WOULD
GO TO THE STAFF.

She concludes YEAH, I THINK YOU
PROBABLY DEFINITELY WOULD,
KNOWING YOU, JASON.
THAT'S A RESPONSIBLE
THING TO DO.
WELL, THANKS AGAIN
TO THE PANEL.
YOU WERE A
GREAT AUDIENCE.
YOU GAVE SOME
GREAT QUESTIONS,
AND YOU WERE VERY GREAT
IN PARTICIPATING
WITH TODAY'S LESSON.
SO WE'LL SEE YOU FRIDAY.
GET WATCHING THOSE
TALK SHOWS TONIGHT.
BYE FOR NOW.
