Transcript: Student Session 23 | Aug 24, 1998

The opening slate pops up with a countdown timer from 5 seconds and the title “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.

Stewart and Lorraine appear on screen. He’s in his mid-forties, with a dark beard and wavy black hair. He’s wearing glasses, a T-shirt with Einstein’s face and a black cap. Lorraine is in her forties, with long light brown hair tied-up. She’s wearing a black blazer, a purple shirt, small earrings and a blue cap.

Stewart says WELL, WELCOME TO
THE LAST SESSION
OF THE MATH MYSTERY.
WE'VE FINALLY
GOTTEN HERE.

Lorraine says HI, AND IF WE'RE GOING
TO SOLVE THIS MYSTERY,
IT'S GOING TO
HAVE TO BE TODAY.
INQUIRING MINDS
WANT TO KNOW WHO.

In the background, a whiteboard features black and white pictures and post-its.

Stewart says ABSOLUTELY.
NOW, JUST TO PICK UP ON
SOMETHING THAT MISTER C
AND MISSUS G LEFT ME WITH A
LITTLE BIT OF A PROBLEM
TO DO WITH THE SPHINX
AND THEY SAID TO ME
THAT IF I RECEIVED
ANY FAXES FROM ANY
OF THE STUDENTS THAT PERHAPS
I SHOULD PRESENT THEM.
AS YET, UNFORTUNATELY
NOBODY'S RUN DOWN HERE
WITH A FAX TO ME,
SO I DON'T HAVE
ANYTHING TO
SHOW YOU.

Lorraine says AND THAT WAS
LORRAINE AND STEWART
THAT TOLD YOU THAT.

Stewart says THAT'S TRUE.
THAT'S TRUE.
NOW, WHAT I'M GOING
TO SUGGEST, THOUGH,
IS THAT IF YOU
STILL HAVE IT,
FAX IT IN AND MAYBE
LORRAINE OR STEWART
WILL STILL TAKE A LOOK
AT IT AND RESPOND TO IT,
ESPECIALLY IF YOU
HAVE A NICE SOLUTION.
SO PLEASE GO AHEAD
AND FAX IT IN ANYWAY.
SOUND FINE?

Lorraine says SOUNDS GREAT.

Stewart says BUT YOU KNOW, WE STILL
HAVE A MYSTERY TO SOLVE
AND I THINK WE GOT TO DO
SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Lorraine says WELL, WHY DON'T WE
REVIEW ALL THE PLACES
JEWELS HAS TAKEN US.

Stewart says OH, I THINK THAT
THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

A clip plays.

Lorraine says WELL, WE STARTED
OUR MYSTERY RIGHT
HERE IN TORONTO.
THE AMAZING JUMBOTRON
SCREEN AT THE SKYDOME.
AND THEN TO GREECE AND
THE BEAUTIFUL CITY
OF ATHENS WITH ITS
RUINS OF THE ACROPOLIS.
AND ON TO MACHU PICCHU, THE
LOST CITY OF THE INCAS.
ISN'T IT INCREDIBLE?
FROM PERU TO JAPAN, BOY,
WE'VE REALLY TRAVELLED.
NAGANO WAS OUR
DESTINATION,
HOME OF THIS YEAR'S
WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES,
AND CAPE CANAVERAL,
OUR INTREPID MISTER C
WENT ALL THAT WAY TO SNIFF
OUT SOME MORE CLUES.
AH, FLORENCE, ONE OF THE
MOST ROMANTIC CITIES
IN THE WORLD, AS WELL AS
BEING THE HOME TO SOME
INCREDIBLE ART TREASURES;
AND IT LOOKS PRETTY DEAD
NOW, BUT 100 YEARS AGO IN
THE DAYS OF THE KLONDIKE
GOLD RUSH, DAWSON
CITY WAS THRIVING.
AND FINALLY, EGYPT,
EXOTIC AND MYSTERIOUS.
GIZA, THE SITE OF ONE OF THE
GREAT REMAINING PYRAMIDS.

Pictures of the cities mentioned flash by.

The clip ends.

A word map appears with blue notes on it. They read “Jumbotron, Toronto (-80,44). Athens, Greece (24,38). Machu Pichu, Peru (-73,13). Nagano, Japan (138,37). Cape Canaveral, Florida (-81,27). Florence, Italy (11,38). Dawson City, Yukon (-140,64). Giza, Egypt.”

Stewart says WOW, WHEN YOU SEE ALL
THOSE NAMES LINED UP
IN A ROW, IT'S JUST AMAZING
HOW FAR WE HAVE TRAVELLED.
WELL, TRAVELLED
VIRTUALLY, I GUESS.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
OKAY, WE'VE NOW REVIEWED
ALL THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS,
BUT THAT'S JUST
PART OF THE PUZZLE.
REMEMBER AT THE BEGINNING
WHEN MISTER C TOLD YOU
THAT TO SOLVE ANY
OF THE CRIMES,
YOU NEEDED THREE KEY
QUESTIONS IN ORDER
TO SOLVE, WELL, ANY CRIME.

Stewart says WELL, DON'T WE HAVE
THE ORAL QUESTION
TO SORT OF ASK
AND SEE IF PEOPLE
REMEMBER THIS, YES.

Lorraine says AND YOU'LL REQUIRE
YOUR PHONES FOR THIS.

A caption appears on screen under the title “Question Number 1.” It reads “Which one of the following is not necessary to solve a mystery? 1: Motive. 2: Alias. 3: Opportunity. 4: Means.” A gray bar graph reads “0 per cent.”

Stewart says OH, I SEE THE NUMBER'S
GOING UP QUICKLY.
NOW LET'S SEE WHAT KIND
OF RESULTS WE'VE GOT.
VERY GOOD.
EXCELLENT.
LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET
TO OUR 80 PERCENT.
WE LOVE 80 PERCENT.
WE'RE GETTING THERE.
NEED A WHOLE
BUNCH MORE.

The bar graph changes to blue as numbers read “2,5,7,12,14,19,24,26,29,31,38,40,43,45,50,52,53,56,58,59,61 per cent.”

Stewart continues 61, WE MAY HAVE TO SETTLE
FOR A LITTLE BIT LESS.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK
AT THE GRAPH.

Lorraine says SOUNDS GREAT.

Now, a four-bar graph appears. A green bar reads “3,” a purple bar reads “17,” a blue bar reads “7” and a red bar reads “0.”

Stewart says ALIASES ARE A
USEFUL THING,
BUT IT IS NOT
THE ANSWER.
IN FACT, THE THREE KEY
THINGS ARE MOTIVE,
OPPORTUNITY,
AND MEANS.

Lorraine says GOOD FOR THEM.

The green bar changes to “4,” the purple bar changes to “20,” the blue bar changes to “8” and the red bar changes to “2.”

Stewart says BUT I THINK THAT WE NEED
TO GET SOME INFORMATION
ABOUT THE MOTIVE,
DON'T YOU THINK?

Lorraine says DEFINITELY.

Stewart continues I THINK IT'S ABOUT
TIME WE ACTUALLY
ASKED THE STUDENTS.
SO PERHAPS WHAT WE
CAN DO IS ASK YOU
TO CALL IN AND WHAT WE
WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO
IS TO PHONE IN
AND TELL US
WHAT YOU THINK THE
MOTIVE FOR THIS HOAX -
I'M GOING TO USE
THE WORD HOAX.
I THINK THAT'S
MAYBE THE BEST WORD.
WHAT WAS THE MOTIVE
FOR DOING ALL THIS?
WHOEVER WAS PERPETRATING
THIS, BUT PLEASE,
WHEN YOU PHONE IN,
DON'T YET LET US KNOW
WHO YOU THINK DID IT.
WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT
LATER IN THE PROGRAM.
YOU'LL GET A CHANCE, SO
WE'LL GO FROM THERE.

Lorraine says SO, CALL US
NOW BY PRESSING POUND 9
AND LET US KNOW
THE MOTIVES.

Stewart says WHAT IS THE MOTIVE
FOR THIS HOAX?
SOMEBODY HAD TO HAVE A
PRETTY GOOD REASON
FOR DOING THIS, I
WOULD HAVE TO ARGUE.
ONCE WE DO GET SOME
PHONE CALLS COMING IN,
I'LL ACTUALLY RECORD.

Lorraine looks at a computer screen and says THAT'S RIGHT.
AND WE HAVE HERE ONE
CALL THERE FROM COLLEGE.
WE HAVE A FEW MORE
COMING THROUGH.

Stewart says AH, WE HAVE A
CALL COMING IN.

Lorraine says YES, FROM
USBORNE CENTRAL.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.

Lorraine says IAN, I BELIEVE.
OR COURTNEY.
HELLO.

Stewart says HELLO.
ARE YOU THERE?
IS IT COURTNEY
OR IAN?

Ian says IAN.

Lorraine says HI, IAN.

Stewart says HI, IAN.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THE
MOTIVE FOR THIS HOAX IS?

Ian says UM, I DON'T KNOW.

Stewart says YOU'VE READ THE
STORY, I PRESUME,
HAVE YOU?

Ian says YEAH.

Stewart says OKAY.
WHOEVER IS DOING THIS,
WHY DO YOU THINK
THEY'RE DOING IT?

Ian says JUST TO GET
ATTENTION.

Stewart says OKAY, TO GET
ATTENTION.
HEY, THAT'S
LEGITIMATE.

On a blue sheet of paper under the title “Motive,” Stewart writes Ian’s answer.

Lorraine says WELL, THANKS
VERY MUCH, IAN.

Stewart says THANK YOU
VERY MUCH.

Ian says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Stewart says WE HAVE ANOTHER
CALL?

Lorraine says CHRIS OR ALICIA.

Stewart says OH, GREAT, FROM
WHAT SCHOOL?

Lorraine says HELLO.

Chris says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, AND WHAT DO YOU
THINK MIGHT BE A MOTIVE?

Chris makes a pause and says TO GET THEM TO
LEARN SOMETHING.

Stewart says OKAY, ANYTHING
SPECIFICALLY,
LIKE GET THEM
TO LEARN WHAT?

Chris says TO GO TO DIFFERENT
COUNTRIES.

Stewart says OKAY, AND THAT SEEMS TO
BE THE GEOGRAPHY PART.
OKAY, EXCELLENT.

Lorraine says GREAT, THANKS
VERY MUCH.
AND WE'RE CALLING
CORY OR JESSICA
FROM SAINT JOHN
BREBEUF.
SO FAR, TO GET ATTENTION
AND GET TO LEARN, GREAT.

Stewart adds the Chris’s answer to the blue piece of paper.

Stewart says TO GET TO LEARN
SOME GEOGRAPHY.
SEEMS TO ME THAT'S
POSSIBLE, YEAH.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
HELLO.

Cory says HI.

Lorraine says HI, AND WHAT
MOTIVE DO YOU HAVE?

Cory says HE OR SHE MIGHT
HAVE DONE IT
FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

Stewart says AH, JUST FOR
THE FUN OF IT.
YEAH, OKAY, YOU KNOW
THAT'S POSSIBLE.
I CAN THINK ONE OR TWO
PEOPLE WHO MIGHT
HAVE DONE IT FOR
THAT REASON.

Lorraine says GREAT.
WELL, THANKS
VERY MUCH.

Stewart says HAVE WE GOT
ANYBODY ELSE?
MAYBE WE CAN TAKE
ONE MORE CALL ANYWAY.

Lorraine says OKAY, WE'RE CALLING
AT JACK MINER.
IT'S WARREN.

Stewart says OKAY, WE'RE JUST WAITING
FOR A CONNECTION
AND IT'LL COME
PRETTY SOON.

Lorraine says SO, TO GET
ATTENTION.
AND LEARN, AND
ENTERTAINMENT, GOOD.

Stewart says NOW, THE ENTERTAINMENT
AND TO GET ATTENTION
ARE KIND OF THE SAME
BUT NOT EXACTLY.

Lorraine says HELLO.

Warren says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, AND WHAT CAN YOU
ADD HERE FOR THE MOTIVE?
WHY DO YOU THINK THIS
PARTICULAR PERSON
WAS SENDING ALL
THESE EMAILS?

Warren says I DON'T KNOW, TO
FIGURE OUT HOW FAST
PEOPLE COULD
FIND HIM OUT.

Stewart says AH.
IT'S ALMOST LIKE A
TEST THEN, TO TEST.

Warren says SO HE'S SMART.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says RENE AND SO
ON, YEAH, OKAY,
TO SEE IF THEY COULD
FIGURE IT OUT.
THAT'S EXCELLENT.
WHAT DO YOU THINK, HAVE
WE GOT ANOTHER CALL?

Lorraine says YES, WE HAVE
USBORNE CENTRAL.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.

A girl says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING
TO ADD HERE?

The girl says THEY MIGHT HAVE
BEEN JEALOUS
OF RENE AND ISAAC.

Stewart says OH, JEALOUSY.
I HOPE I SPELLED
THAT RIGHT.

Lorraine says NOW, ANYTHING
IN PARTICULAR
THEY MIGHT BE
JEALOUS ABOUT?

The girl says NOPE.

Lorraine says OKAY.
YEAH, IT'S A
GOOD IDEA.

Stewart says I MEAN, THERE'S A
POSSIBILITY AND WE'VE GOT
AT LEAST ONE OF
THEIR PEERS INVOLVED
SO THAT'S CLEARLY
A POSSIBILITY.

Lorraine says GREAT.

Stewart says YOU KNOW SOMETHING,
I THINK WE'VE GOT
AT LEAST FIVE DECENT
MOTIVES HERE.
ANY ONE OF THEM
COULD BE RIGHT.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
WELL, GREAT.
WE'RE OBVIOUSLY NOT
SHORT OF MOTIVES.

Stewart says YEAH, WE'VE GOT
SOME MOTIVES.

Lorraine says SO, WHAT, WE HAVE
ABOUT FIVE
THAT WERE GIVEN TO US
THAT WERE EXCELLENT.

Stewart says YES.

WELL, WHAT
ABOUT THE MEANS?

Lorraine says YEAH.

Lorraine says WHOEVER SENT THESE
EMAILS DELIBERATELY
INCLUDED A CERTAIN
KIND OF TASK.
SOME KIND OF PROBLEM TO
KEEP ISAAC OR RENE
AND SOPHIA ON
THEIR TOES.

Stewart says YUP.

Lorraine continues SO, WHAT WAS IT?
WHAT DO YOU THINK
WAS THE MEANS?
WHY DON'T YOU CALL US
NOW BY PRESSING POUND 9?
WHAT DO YOU THINK
MIGHT BE THE MEANS?

Stewart says OKAY.
SO WE'RE GOING TO
GO TO THE MEANS.
IN A SENSE, THIS IS
ABOUT HOW THE PERSON
WOULD HAVE GONE ABOUT DOING
THESE EMAILS AND SO ON.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
AND WE ARE GOING TO
CONNECT A FEW HERE.

Stewart says OKAY, GREAT.

Lorraine says IT'S USBORNE
CENTRAL.
HELLO.

A boy says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
WHAT DO YOU THINK
MIGHT BE THE MEANS?

The boy says COULD YOU REPEAT
THE QUESTION?

Lorraine says WHAT DO YOU THINK
MIGHT BE THE MEANS?

Stewart says WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
THIS PARTICULAR HOAX,
HOW DID THIS PERSON
BASICALLY GO ABOUT DOING IT?
WHAT DID THEY NEED?

The boy says A COMPUTER.

Stewart says THEY NEEDED A
COMPUTER, EXCELLENT.
OKAY, SO THAT WAS
ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
WHAT ELSE DID
THEY NEED?
I THINK MAYBE THAT'S A
BETTER WAY OF PUTTING IT.

Lorraine says THANKS VERY MUCH.

Stewart says SO YOU NEED A
COMPUTER, CLEAR.

Lorraine says DEFINITELY A COMPUTER
WAS VERY IMPORTANT.

Stewart says BUT IF YOU
HAVE A COMPUTER,
YOU NEED MORE THAN
THAT, I THINK.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says YEAH.

Lorraine says HELLO.

The boy says HI.

Lorraine says HI.
DO YOU HAVE
ANOTHER MEANS?

The boy says YEAH, WITH A COMPUTER,
THEY WOULD ALSO
NEED ACCESS TO
THE INTERNET.

Lorraine says EXCELLENT.

Stewart says AH, NOW WE'RE GETTING
IT, ACCESS TO INTERNET.
RIGHT ON.

The boy says OKAY, BYE.

Stewart says THANK YOU.
WHAT ELSE WOULD
YOU NEED TO KNOW
TO PERPETRATE
THIS HOAX?
IS THAT SOMEBODY
ON THE LINE?

On a new piece of paper under the title “Means,” Stewart writes “Computer” and “Internet.”

A teenager says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, DO YOU HAVE
ANOTHER MEANS?

The teenager says NO.
OH, BRAINS.

Stewart says YOU KNOW SOMETHING, I
UNDERSTAND EXACTLY
WHAT YOU MEAN THERE BUT
WHOEVER DID THIS
HAD TO BE
PRETTY SHREWD,
SO THAT'S VERY GOOD.

Lorraine says THANK YOU, AND NOW WE'RE
CALLING JACK MINER.
HELLO.

Justin says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.

Stewart says WHAT ELSE DID THE
PERPETRATOR NEED
TO PULL THIS
STUNT OFF?

Justin says HE NEEDED LIKE THE
PEOPLE'S EMAIL ADDRESS
AND LIKE AND A PLAN,
AND LIKE THE MATH
OR LIKE THE MATH
ALREADY THERE.

Stewart says HE'D HAVE TO
KNOW THE MATH.

Justin says THE PROBLEMS,
MATH PROBLEMS.

Stewart says YEAH, THEY'D HAVE
TO KNOW SOME MATH.
THERE'S NOT TOO MUCH
DOUBT ABOUT THAT.

Justin says AND THEY'D KIND OF
HAVE TO KNOW A BIT
ABOUT RENE AND ISAAC
AND THE OTHER PEOPLE.

Stewart says AH, THEY'D HAVE
TO KNOW ABOUT -
HEY, NOW, THAT'S
A GOOD ONE.
I HADN'T THOUGHT
ABOUT THAT.

Justin says AND THEY'D HAVE TO
KNOW SOME GEOGRAPHY,
TOO, TO KNOW
WHERE TO PUT -

Stewart says I'M GOING TO PUT
ALL THAT DOWN.
RENE, ISAAC.

Lorraine says IS THIS JUSTIN?

Justin says YES.

Lorraine says JUSTIN, CAN YOU ASK
YOUR FACILITATOR
TO CALL THE HELP LINE
WHEN HE HAS A CHANCE?

Justin says OKAY.

Lorraine says THANKS,
APPRECIATE THAT.

Stewart says NOW, WHAT WAS THE OTHER
THING THAT HE SAID?
HAD TO KNOW ABOUT RENE,
ISAAC AND SOPHIA.

Lorraine says AND THE GEOGRAPHY.

Stewart says THE GEOGRAPHY, OF
COURSE, YES, RIGHT.

Lorraine says OKAY, GREAT, GOOD
FOR YOU, JUSTIN.

Stewart says OH, THIS LIST IS
TURNING OUT QUITE WELL.
WHOEVER DID THIS
HAD TO KNOW
AND BE ABLE
TO DO A LOT.

Lorraine says HELLO.

A male spectator says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.

The male spectator says THEY'D HAVE TO
HAVE A DISGUISE
BECAUSE WHEN THEY WERE
IN THE LIBRARY -

Lorraine says VERY GOOD.

Stewart says RIGHT ON.
THERE'S SOMETHING I
HADN'T THOUGHT OF EITHER.
WE'RE GETTING SOME
EXCELLENT RESPONSES HERE.

Lorraine says WELL, THANK YOU, AND

Stewart says HAVE WE GOT ANOTHER
CALL SET UP?

Lorraine says YES.
HELLO.

A young man says HI.

Lorraine says HI.

Stewart says IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE

The young man says THEY HAVE TO KNOW HOW
TO TYPE ON THE COMPUTER.

Stewart says AH, BASICALLY USE
THE COMPUTER, RIGHT.
I'M GOING TO PUT
THAT MORE GENERALLY
BUT USE A COMPUTER,
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
IT'S NOT ENOUGH
JUST TO HAVE ONE,
BUT YOU GOT TO KNOW
WHAT TO DO WITH IT.

Stewart continues writing the answers.

Lorraine says THANK YOU FOR
YOUR CALL.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.
I THINK WE'VE HAD SOME
EXCELLENT RESPONSES.

Lorraine says VERY GOOD.
HELLO.

Stewart says WE'VE CERTAINLY
COVERED A LOT.

Lorraine says HELLO.

Stewart says HELLO.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING
TO ADD TO THE MEANS?

David says THEY COULD HAVE USED
THIS FAX MACHINE.

Lorraine says YES.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.

Lorraine says THANKS, DAVID.

A male youngster says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.

Stewart says WHAT ELSE DID
THEY NEED?

The male youngster says WHAT?
WHAT ELSE DID
THEY NEED?

Stewart says YEAH.

The male youngster says MONEY.

Stewart says NOW, WHY WOULD
THEY NEED MONEY?
I DON'T THINK
YOU'RE WRONG BUT -

The male youngster says TO BUY THE TICKETS FOR
THE BLUE JAY'S GAME.

Stewart says AAAH, OKAY, SO
IN OTHER WORDS,
THEY CAN'T BE REALLY
SHORT OF MONEY.
AND MAYBE A PEER MAY
NOT HAVE THAT KIND
OF MONEY BECAUSE
IT'S NOT SO CHEAP.

The male youngster says WHAT?

Stewart says IT'S NOT SO CHEAP TO
GO TO A BASEBALL GAME.

The male youngster says YEAH.

Lorraine says GREAT.
WELL, THANKS
VERY MUCH.
SO, WE HAVE
MOTIVES.
WE HAVE MEANS.

Stewart says YEAH.

Lorraine continues AND NOW WE HAVE TO LOOK
AT THE THIRD QUESTION
WHICH WOULD BE

In unison, they say OPPORTUNITY.

Lorraine laughs.

Stewart says RIGHT.

Lorraine says AND TALKING OF
OPPORTUNITY,
WE'RE GOING TO GIVE
YOU A CHANCE TO TALK
TO THE FIVE SUSPECTS,
AS WELL AS RENE.

Stewart says OH, WELL, MAYBE WE SHOULD
GO THROUGH THE ROGUE'S
GALLERY ONE MORE TIME JUST
TO REFRESH EVERYBODY'S
MEMORY AS TO EXACTLY WHO
THOSE FIVE SUSPECTS ARE.

Lorraine says GREAT IDEA.
AND HERE WE GO.

Stewart says LOOK AT THAT GUY.
I MEAN, THAT SNARL.
I DON'T KNOW.
ANYWAY, SPIKE.

A picture shows a man in his forties. A caption reads “Spike a.k.a. ‘Big Brother.’.”

Lorraine says LOOKS SOMEWHAT
GUILTY, DOESN'T HE?

The picture changes to a blond little girl with a caption that reads “Beatrice. Computer nerd.”

Stewart says SHE'S GOT A
TWINKLE IN HER EYE.
BUT SHE'S GOT A
BIT OF A TWINKLE
IN HER EYE.

The picture changes to woman wearing a white wig with a caption that reads “Grammie a.k.a. ‘The Brampton Belle.’.”

Stewart says SWEET LITTLE
OLD LADY.
HOW COULD SHE
DO IT NOW?

The picture changes to a blond woman holding newspapers with a caption that reads “Missus Penelope.”

Stewart says WELL, YOU KNOW,
GEOGRAPHY TEACHER.
NOT TO BE TRUSTED.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
SHE'S A MATH
TEACHER.

The picture changes to a woman with curly hair wearing glasses with a caption that reads “Missus Newton.”

Stewart continues I CAN'T IMAGINE
HOW SOPHIA, RENE,
AND ISAAC EVER PICKED A
MATH TEACHER TO DO THIS.
THEIR PEOPLE
WOULDN'T DO
THIS KIND OF THING.
I DON'T THINK
ANYWAY.

Lorraine says WELL, THAT'S
RIGHT.
SO I GUESS NOW
LIKE THE STUDENTS,
BECAUSE AS WELL
WE HAVE RENE,
WHO THE STUDENTS
CAN TALK TO.

Stewart says WHAT WE'VE SET UP HERE,
JUST SO THE STUDENTS KNOW,
IS A CONFERENCE
CALL AND WE'VE GOT
ALL FIVE SUSPECTS ON
THE LINES RIGHT NOW,
AS WELL AS RENE.
SO WHAT WE'RE GOING TO
INVITE YOU TO DO IS
TO PHONE IN AND IF
YOU'VE GOT A QUESTION
FOR ANY ONE SUSPECT,
JUST ONE AT A TIME,
YOU TELL US EXACTLY WHO
YOU WOULD LIKE
TO CONNECT TO, THAT
IS SPIKE, GRAMMIE,
MISSUS NEWTON, MISSUS
PENELOPE, OR BEATRICE,
OR IF YOU WANT TO ASK
A QUESTION OF RENE.
THE QUESTION YOU
MIGHT ASK OF RENE
IS WHO SHE THINKS IS
HER NUMBER 1 SUSPECT.
YOU MIGHT WANT
TO ASK HER THAT.
YOU CAN PHONE IN
RIGHT NOW AND DIRECT
A QUESTION TO ANY ONE
OF THOSE SUSPECTS.

Lorraine says YES, AND WE'LL ATTEMPT
TO TAKE AT LEAST
ONE CALL
FROM EVERY SCHOOL.

Stewart says YES, WE WOULD
REALLY LIKE TO HEAR
FROM ALL THE DIFFERENT
SCHOOLS AT LEAST ONCE.

Lorraine says SO, CALL US NOW
BY PRESSING POUND 9
AND TELL US RIGHT
AWAY WHICH ONE
YOU WANT TO TALK TO
AND WE'LL CONNECT YOU.
WE DO HAVE SOME CALLS
COMING THROUGH.
WE'LL WAIT A FEW SECONDS
AND WE'LL START
WITH SAINT JOHN BREBEUF.

Jacob says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
AND YOU WOULD
LIKE TO SPEAK TO?

Jacob says I'D LIKE TO
SPEAK TO RENE.

Lorraine says RENE.

Stewart says OKAY, RENE.

Lorraine says RENE?

Rene says HI.

Lorraine says OKAY, RENE IS THERE,
SO ASK YOUR QUESTION.

Stewart says GO AHEAD.

Jacob says OKAY, RENE, WHO'S YOUR
NUMBER 1 SUSPECT?

Rene says WELL, I'M NOT REALLY SURE
WHO IT IS BUT I THINK
IT COULD BE MY
BROTHER SPIKE BECAUSE
HE'S ALWAYS PLAYING
PRANKS ON US AND STUFF,
I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE,
BUT I THINK IT'S HIM.

Stewart says BOY, ALL THAT
SUSPICION.

Lorraine says ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

Jacob says NO.

Lorraine says OKAY.

A young woman says DID SHE ANSWER?

Lorraine says DID YOU NOT HEAR HER?

Jacob says NO.

Stewart says I'LL REPEAT HER
ANSWER AND WE'LL SEE
IF THE TECHNICAL CONNECTION
IS RIGHT OR NOT.
BUT HER ANSWER WAS,
SHE SAID SPIKE
BECAUSE HER BROTHER
SPIKE ALWAYS
SEEMS TO PLAY SOME
JOKES ON THEM.

Lorraine says PRANKS.

Stewart continues PRANKS AND JOKES.
SO SHE DID SAY
SPIKE.
SHE'S GOT THAT
FEELING.

Jacob says YEAH, I HAVE
ANOTHER QUESTION.

Lorraine says OKAY.

Jacob says DOES SPIKE HAVE PRETTY
GOOD FINANCIAL SUPPORT?

Lorraine says WELL, ONE MOMENT.

Stewart says WHY DON'T YOU
ASK SPIKE?

Lorraine says SPIKE,
ARE YOU THERE?

Spike says YUP, I'M HERE.

Lorraine says CAN YOU HEAR HIM?

Spike says YES.

Lorraine says IT'S IT CORY?

Jacob says THIS IS JACOB.

Lorraine says OH, JACOB, CAN
YOU HEAR SPIKE?

Jacob says YES, I CAN.

Lorraine says OKAY, GREAT.

Stewart says OKAY, GO AHEAD.

Jacob says OKAY, SPIKE, DO YOU HAVE
GOOD FINANCIAL SUPPORT?

Spike says NOT TOO BAD.
I'VE GOT A BIT OF
A PART-TIME JOB
THAT PUTS SOME
CASH IN MY POCKET.
SO I'M NOT DOING GREAT
BUT I'M DOING ALL RIGHT.

Jacob says OH, OKAY.
BYE BYE.

Lorraine says GREAT, WELL, THANKS.

Stewart says BOY, THAT WAS
INTERESTING.
SO HE COULD
AFFORD IT.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says THAT'S A GOOD
QUESTION.

Lorraine says AND WE'RE CALLING
USBORNE CENTRAL.

A male adolescent says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.

The male adolescent says HI.

Lorraine says AND YOU WOULD
LIKE TO SPEAK TO?

The male adolescent says BEATRICE.

Lorraine says BEATRICE.
BEATRICE, ARE
YOU THERE?

Beatrice says YEAH, HELLO.

Lorraine says GO AHEAD WITH
YOUR QUESTION.

The male adolescent asks HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW
ABOUT COMPUTERS?

Beatrice replies WELL, I TOOK A COMPUTER
COURSE IN GRADE 6,
BUT I KNOW LOTS
ABOUT COMPUTERS.

Stewart says SOUNDS LIKE SHE
KNOWS COMPUTERS.

Lorraine says ANY OTHER QUESTION.

The male adolescent says NO.

Lorraine says OKAY, GREAT, THANKS.
AND WE'RE NOW GOING
TO JACK MINER SCHOOL.

A female adolescent says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, DO YOU
HAVE A QUESTION?

The female adolescent says NO, BUT I THINK IT'S
THE MATH TEACHER
AND THE GEOGRAPHY
TEACHER.

Lorraine says WOULD YOU LIKE TO
TALK TO ONE OF THEM?
WHY DON'T YOU
TALK TO THEM?

Stewart says WHY DON'T YOU TALK TO
ONE OF THEM AND ASK THEM
SOMETHING THAT MIGHT PROVE
IT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

Lorraine says NOW'S YOUR CHANCE.

Stewart says NOW'S YOUR CHANCE.

Lorraine says ASK THEM.

Stewart says WHICH ONE WOULD YOU
LIKE TO SPEAK TO?

The female adolescent says IS RENE A - NO, WHO?

Stewart says THE MATH TEACHER
IS MISSUS NEWTON
AND THE GEOGRAPHY
IS Mrs. PENELOPE.

The female adolescent says ARE THEY A-STUDENTS?

Stewart says OH, YOU WANT TO
SPEAK TO RENE?

The female adolescent says THE MATH TEACHER.

Lorraine says OKAY.

Stewart says OH, THE MATH
TEACHER.

Lorraine says AND, MISSUS NEWTON,
ARE YOU THERE?

Missus Newton says YES, I AM HERE.

Lorraine says OKAY, ASK YOUR
QUESTION, PLEASE.

Missus Newton says YES, MAY I HELP YOU?

The female adolescent says WE CAN'T HEAR.

Stewart says YOU CAN'T HEAR?

The female adolescent says NO.

Stewart says MAYBE WE CAN RELAY IT
THROUGH THE STUDIO HERE.
SHE'S RESPONDING.
WHAT IS YOUR
QUESTION?

The female adolescent says ARE RENE AND
ISAAC A-STUDENTS?

Stewart says ARE RENE AND
ISAAC A-STUDENTS.

Missus Newton says I WOULD HAVE TO
SAY THAT THEY'RE
ACTUALLY B+
STUDENTS.

Stewart says CAN YOU HEAR
THE RESPONSE?

The female adolescent says NO.

Stewart says SHE SAID THAT THEY'RE
ACTUALLY B+ STUDENTS,
SO THEY'RE NOT
QUITE A-STUDENTS.

The female adolescent says OKAY.

Stewart says OKAY?

Lorraine says DO YOU HAVE
ANOTHER QUESTION?

The female adolescent says NO.

Lorraine says OKAY, GREAT.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.

Lorraine says ALL RIGHT.
AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO
GO TO USBORNE CENTRAL
AND CONNECT WITH THEM.
HELLO.

A female spectator says CAN I TALK TO
THE GRAMMS?

Stewart says OH, GRAMMIE, YES.

Lorraine says GRAMMIE, OKAY,
ONE MOMENT.
IS GRAMMIE THERE?

Grammie says HELLO.

Lorraine says GO AHEAD WITH
YOUR QUESTION.

Grammie says HELLO.

The female spectator says WHERE WERE YOU ON
MONDAY THE 20TH OF APRIL?

Grammie says OH, MY GOODNESS,
THAT WAS SO LONG AGO.
MONDAY, MONDAY, OH,
MONDAY'S THE DAY
THAT I ALWAYS GO AND
GET MY CAT FOOD.
I WAS PROBABLY
SHOPPING.

The female spectator says I CAN'T HEAR YOU.

Stewart says CAN YOU FILL
THAT ONE IN?

Lorraine says ACTUALLY, I CAN
ALMOST IMITATE HER.

Stewart says I WAS THINKING.

Lorraine says OKAY, CAN YOU HEAR US?

The female spectator says I CAN HEAR YOU TALKING
BUT I CAN'T HEAR GRAMMIE.

Lorraine says WELL, GRAMMIE, I'LL
IMITATE HER VOICE.
SHE MENTIONED THAT
USUALLY MONDAY
SHE GETS HER CAT
SOME FOOD.
SO IT GOES TO
THE PET STORE.

The female spectator says SO SHE WAS GONE
FROM HER HOUSE?

Lorraine says GRAMMIE, WERE YOU
GONE FROM YOUR HOUSE?

Grammie says WELL, I USUALLY GO FIRST
THING IN THE MORNING
AND THEN I GET BACK JUST IN
TIME TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT
OF TEA AND TOAST, AND
THEN I WOULD HAVE BEEN -
I WOULD HAVE BEEN WORKING
ON MY CROSSWORD PUZZLES
IN THE AFTERNOON.

The female spectator says CAN YOU REPEAT
WHAT SHE'S SAYING?

Lorraine says YES.
SHE MENTIONED THAT
EARLY IN THE MORNING -

Stewart says SHE HAS HER TEA.
SHE GOES OUT IN
THE MORNING.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says AND THEN AFTER THAT
SHE COMES HOME AND DOES
HER CROSSWORD
PUZZLES, I THINK -
YEAH, CROSSWORD
PUZZLE.
THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

The female spectator says OKAY.

Lorraine says GREAT.

Stewart says VERY GOOD.

WE GOT ANOTHER CALL.

Lorraine says YES, WE HAVE
QUITE A FEW HERE.
THIS IS WONDERFUL.

David says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
YOU WOULD LIKE
TO SPEAK TO?

David says GRAMMIE.

Lorraine says GRAMMIE AGAIN,
LET'S SEE HERE.
HELLO, IS
GRAMMIE THERE?

Grammie says YES.

Lorraine says AND CAN YOU
HEAR THAT, DAVID?

David says YES.

Grammie says YES.

Lorraine says GO AHEAD, DAVID.

David asks DO YOU ALSO SPELL
YOUR NAME WITH A
Y AT THE END INSTEAD
OF JUST I-E?

Grammie replies NOW, WHAT A
FUNNY QUESTION.
OF COURSE.

Lorraine says DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER
QUESTION, DAVID?

David says DO YOU TRAVEL A LOT?

Grammie says WELL, I LIKE TO TRAVEL BY
READING A LOT OF BOOKS
AND WATCHING A LOT
OF TELEVISION.
I DON'T HAVE MUCH
MONEY, YOU KNOW,
SO I DON'T GO
VERY FAR.

David says HOW OLD ARE YOU?

Lorraine chuckles.

Grammie says EXCUSE ME, YOUNG
MAN, BUT THAT'S
A VERY PERSONAL
QUESTION.

A young woman says ARE YOU A MAN?
[laughing]

Lorraine says OKAY, GREAT,
THANKS, DAVID.
ALL RIGHT.
NOW WE'RE GOING
TO TRY SOMEONE
FROM USBORNE CENTRAL.
HELLO.
HI.

A schoolgirl says CAN I TALK TO
GRAMMIE?

Lorraine says CERTAINLY.

OH, GRAMMIE,
ARE YOU THERE?

Grammie says YES, YES.

Lorraine says OKAY.
GO AHEAD WITH
YOUR QUESTION.

The schoolgirl says DO YOU HAVE A
COMPUTER?

Grammie says WELL, AS A
MATTER OF FACT,
WELL, I HAVE AN
OLD CLUNKER,
BUT I DON'T USE IT
THAT OFTEN BECAUSE
IT'S NOT VERY GOOD
ON THE INTERNET.
SO I USUALLY HAVE TO GO
OUT TO THOSE OTHER PUBLIC
PLACES, YOU KNOW,
WHERE YOU CAN GET ON
AND SEND YOUR LITTLE
EMAIL MESSAGES.

The schoolgirl says CAN YOU REPEAT
THAT, PLEASE?

Stewart says OH, OKAY, YOU
DIDN'T HEAR THAT, EH?

Lorraine says CAN YOU HEAR
A LITTLE BIT?

Grammie says CAN YOU HEAR ME?

The schoolgirl says PARDON?

Lorraine says CAN YOU HEAR GRAMMIE -
CAN YOU HEAR HER AT ALL?

The schoolgirl says NO, I CAN'T HEAR
GRAMMIE.

Lorraine says OKAY.

Stewart says WELL, I GUESS WE GOTTA
REPEAT THE ANSWER.
YOU WANT TO
TRY THAT ONE?
SHE SAID THAT SHE HAS AN
OLD CLUNKER COMPUTER
AT HOME, BUT SHE ACTUALLY HAS
TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE
IF SHE WANTS TO DO SOMETHING
LIKE MAYBE SEND AN EMAIL,
MAYBE A PUBLIC PLACE WHERE
YOU CAN USE A COMPUTER.
THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

The schoolgirl says WHAT'S GRAMMIE'S
EMAIL ADDRESS?
DOES SHE HAVE ONE?

Lorraine says OH, GRAMMIE, DID
YOU HEAR THAT?

Grammie says YOU KNOW, MY
MEMORY IS SO POOR,
I COULDN'T
TELL YOU.
I HAVE IT WRITTEN AT
HOME ON MY COMPUTER
AND I TAKE IT WITH
ME, BUT I DON'T KNOW.

Lorraine says SHE SAID HER MEMORY
IS NOT THE BEST.
SHE HAS IT ON HER DESK
AT HOME BUT SHE'S
UNABLE TO HAVE IT AT
HAND RIGHT NOW, OKAY?

The schoolgirl says DOES SHE GO TO THE
LIBRARY AT LOT?

Lorraine says OH, DO YOU GO TO
THE LIBRARY AT LOT?

Grammie says WELL, YES, OF
COURSE.
IT'S ONE OF MY
FAVOURITE PLACES.

Lorraine says YES, OF COURSE, IT'S ONE
OF HER FAVOURITE PLACES.
OKAY.

The schoolgirl says WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME
THAT YOU WENT THERE, GRAMMIE?

Lorraine says WHEN WAS THE
LAST TIME, UH-HUH.

Stewart says OH, THE GRILLING
GOES ON.

Grammie says OH, MY MY.
AGAIN, I HAVE TO
REMEMBER BACK.
I WAS PROBABLY THERE
JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS -
YES, BECAUSE I HAD TO
RETURN SOME BOOKS.

Lorraine says WELL, SHE SAID HER
MEMORY IS NOT THE BEST,
BUT SHE BELIEVES A
COUPLE OF DAYS AGO
BECAUSE SHE HAD TO
RETURN SOME BOOKS.

Stewart says YUP.
PERHAPS WE SHOULD
TAKE ANOTHER CALL.

The schoolgirl says OKAY.

Stewart continues THAT'S GREAT.
YOU DID A NICE
JOB ON THAT.

Lorraine says IF YOU'RE HAVING
PROBLEMS HEARING
OUR LOVELY SUSPECTS,
A SUGGESTION
IS TO TURN UP THE
MONITOR DIAL.
IS IT A DIAL?
OKAY, SO THE MONITOR
DIAL MAY HELP, OKAY?
AND CONTINUE
WITH YOUR CALLS.
Looking at her computer screen, Lorraine continues THIS IS GREAT AND
WE'RE GOING TO CONNECT
NOW TO KRISTEN OR CAREY.

Stewart says BOY, WE'RE GETTING A
TREMENDOUS NUMBER
OF QUESTIONS.

Lorraine says GOOD QUESTIONS.

Stewart says EXCELLENT.

Lorraine says THEY'RE THINKING,
I LIKE IT.
HELLO.
HELLO.

Stewart says HELLO.

Lorraine says OKAY, WE'RE TRYING
JACK MINER SCHOOL.
BRANDY FROM JACK
MINER SCHOOL.
GIVES A CHANCE FOR
THE OTHER KIDS
TO THINK OF A
QUESTION.

Stewart says THAT'S RIGHT.

Lorraine says HELLO.

Brandy says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, DID YOU WANT TO TALK
TO ONE OF THE SUSPECTS?

Brandy says YEAH.

Lorraine says OKAY, WHICH ONE?

Brandy says SPIKE.

Lorraine says SPIKE.
OKAY, SPIKE,
ARE YOU THERE?

Spike says YEAH, YEAH,
I'M HERE.

Lorraine says OKAY, GO AHEAD
WITH YOUR QUESTION.

Brandy says I WANT TO KNOW IF YOU KNOW
A LOT ABOUT COMPUTERS?

Spike says YEAH, I THINK COMPUTERS
ARE PRETTY COOL.
SORT OF PLAYED AROUND
WITH THEM, YOU KNOW?
I'M ON THE NET
FROM TIME TO TIME,
CHECKING OUT SITES.
SO, YEAH, I GUESS I'M ALL
RIGHT WITH COMPUTERS.

Stewart says DID YOU HEAR THAT?

Brandy says NO.

Lorraine says OKAY.

Stewart says WE HAVE TO CHECK BECAUSE--
ANYWAY, GO AHEAD.
DO YOU WANT TO
PARAPHRASE THAT.

Lorraine says HE SAYS HE'S PRETTY
GOOD WITH COMPUTERS.

Stewart says IT SOUNDS LIKE HE KIND
OF LIKES THEM, YOU KNOW?
YEAH, THEY'RE OKAY.
HE SAID THEY WERE OKAY.

Lorraine says ANY OTHER QUESTION?

Brandy says NO.

Lorraine says OKAY.

Stewart says VERY GOOD.

Lorraine says ALL RIGHT.
NOW, ANY OF THE SUSPECTS
HAVE NOT BEEN -
OH, Mrs. PENELOPE.

Stewart says MISSUS PENELOPE, NOBODY'S
TALKED TO MISSUS. PENELOPE.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says GEOGRAPHY TEACHER,
WASN'T SHE?

Lorraine says YES.
NOW WE'RE CONNECTING HERE
WITH SAINT JOHN BREBEUF.
HELLO.

Stewart says HI.

A schoolboy says HELLO.

Lorraine says WHICH ONE WOULD YOU
LIKE TO SPEAK TO?

The schoolboy says THE GEOGRAPHY
TEACHER.

Stewart says ALL RIGHT.

Lorraine says GOOD.

Missus Penelope says HELLO.

Lorraine says IS MISSUS PENELOPE
THERE?

Missus Penelope says I'M HERE.

Lorraine says HI.
OKAY, GO AHEAD
WITH YOUR QUESTION.

The schoolboy says WHAT ARE
RENE AND ISAAC'S -
WHAT ARE THEIR GRADES?

Missus Penelope says WELL, I DON'T HAVE
ISAAC IN MY CLASSES.
I JUST HAVE RENE.

Lorraine says DID YOU HEAR THAT?

The schoolboy says NO, I DIDN'T HEAR
WHAT SHE SAID.

Lorraine says SHE DOESN'T HAVE
ISAAC IN HER CLASS
BUT SHE DOES
HAVE RENE.

Stewart says OKAY.

Lorraine says AND, MISSUS PENELOPE,
CAN YOU REPEAT THAT
ONE MORE TIME?

Missus Penelope says YES, I DON'T HAVE ISAAC IN
MY CLASS BUT I DO HAVE RENE,
AND RENE IS A VERY GOOD
STUDENT IN MY CLASS.

Lorraine says OKAY, THAT'S WHAT
WE THOUGHT WE HEARD.
GREAT.
WELL, THANK YOU.
AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO
CONNECT WITH VICKY.
HELLO, VICKY.

Vicky says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI, AND WHO WOULD
YOU LIKE TO SPEAK TO?

Vicky says GRAMMIE.

Lorraine says GRAMMIE, OKAY.
IS GRAMMIE THERE?

Grammie says HERE.

Lorraine says ALL RIGHT, AND GO AHEAD
WITH YOUR QUESTION.

Vicky says WHY ARE YOU CALLED
THE BRAMPTON BELLE?

Grammie says AH, MY, HOW DID
YOU KNOW THAT?
WELL, I WAS A BIT OF
A BEAUTY IN MY DAY.
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW IT
NOW, BUT I WAS THEN.

Lorraine says DID YOU HEAR THAT?
WELL, AS SHE
MENTIONED, SHE'S -

Stewart says QUITE A BEAUTY IN
HER DAY, SHE SAID.
IN HER DAY.
I THINK THAT'S A VERY
IMPORTANT POINT.

Lorraine says WELL, GRAMMIE, YOU
STILL LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
AND WE'RE GOING TO
TAKE ONE MORE CALL.
AND WE HAVE CRYSTAL.
HI, CRYSTAL.

Crystal says I WAS GOING TO ASK
THE SAME QUESTION.

Lorraine says WELL, GO AHEAD.
YOU CAN PICK ANY
OF THE SUSPECTS.

Stewart says ANYONE YOU WANT.

Lorraine says LAST CALL.

Crystal says IS IT MISTER C.

Stewart says MISTER C., THAT'S ME.

Crystal says YEAH, IS IT YOU?

Stewart says IS IT ME?
NO, NO, I THINK THAT
THAT QUESTION CAME UP
SOME THREE, FOUR
WEEKS AGO.

Lorraine says WE CLARIFIED THAT.

Stewart says WE CLARIFIED THAT.
I THINK WE WERE
IN REHEARSAL,
IF I RECALL CORRECTLY.
THAT'S RIGHT.
SO, NO, I DON'T
THINK I COULD HAVE
HAD ANYTHING TO
DO WITH THIS.

Lorraine says GREAT.
WELL, THANKS
FOR YOUR CALL.

Crystal says OKAY.

Stewart says WELL, YOU KNOW, THAT'S
MAYBE A PERFECT NOTE
ON WHICH TO SAY,
LET'S GET ON WITH
THE FINAL
CONCLUSION HERE.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.
NOW'S OUR CHANCE
TO DETERMINE -

Stewart says WHO DID IT.

Lorraine says NOW YOU HAVE
A CHANCE.
THAT'S RIGHT, YOU'RE GOING
TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
OR WE'RE GOING TO
GIVE YOU FIVE MINUTES
TO DETERMINE THE
PERPETRATOR AND FROM THAT,
WE WILL HEAR
FROM EACH SCHOOL.

Stewart says THIS IS YOUR LAST
CHANCE AS AN INDIVIDUAL
AND AS A GROUP TO TALK OVER
WHO YOU THINK YOU'LL,
IN ESSENCE, VOTE FOR BECAUSE
AT THE END OF THIS,
WE'RE GOING TO DO A
QUESTION AND SEE
WHO YOU THINK ACTUALLY
COMMITTED THIS.

Lorraine says EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU
WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE.

Stewart says ABSOLUTELY.

Lorraine continues SO, AS A CLASS, GET
TALKING ABOUT OR AS A GROUP
AND WE'LL GIVE
YOU FIVE MINUTES,
AND AFTER THAT WE WOULD
LIKE TO TALK TO YOU.
AND THEREFORE,
YOUR ACTIVITY:

The slate changes to “Activity. Determine who the perpetrator is. Back in five minutes.”

Lorraine continues ENJOY.

Stewart says HEY, WE'RE BACK.
ISN'T IT TIME TO FIND OUT
WHAT THE STUDENTS THINK.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT.

Stewart says I THINK - DON'T WE
HAVE AN ORAL QUESTION
TO HELP US
OUT WITH THAT?

Lorraine says WE CERTAINLY DO AND
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU
CAN VOTE HERE.

A caption under the title “Question Number 2” reads “Who do you think is behind the mystery? 1: Spike. 2: Beatrice. 3: Grammie. 4: Missus Penelope. 5: Missus Newton.” A gray bar graph reads “0 per cent.”

Stewart says WELL, WE'VE GOT 60 PERCENT
OF THE RESPONSES ALREADY.
LET'S SEE, WE NEED
80 PERCENT ON THIS.
OH, WE'RE UP TO
67 PERCENT.

Lorraine says 70.

The bar graph changes to blue as numbers read “2,6, 8,12,17,19,23,25,27,35,40,46,48,54,56,58,60,62,65,67 per cent.”

Stewart says COME ON, FEW
MORE VOTES.
IS IT CLEAR
WHAT THEY THINK?
I ACTUALLY THINK
THAT WE SHOULD ASK
FOR ONE OR TWO
RESPONSES, PERHAPS.
I DON'T KNOW.

Lorraine says GOOD IDEA.

Stewart says 69 PERCENT.
LET'S SAY WHEN WE
HAVE ONE MORE VOTE
WE'LL SHOW EVERYBODY
WHAT'S ON THE SCREEN.
WE'VE GOT IT.

The bar graph changes to “71” and finally to “73 per cent.”

Lorraine says YES.
OKAY, SO WE NEED TO
GO TO THE BAR GRAPH.

Stewart says GOING TO THE
BAR GRAPH.

Lorraine says AH-HA.

A five-bar graph appears. The green bar reads “3,” the purple bar reads “0,” the blue bar reads “22,” the red bar reads “8” and the turquoise bar reads “2.”

Stewart says WELL, I'LL SAY THAT
THE VAST MAJORITY
HAVE CHOSEN GRAMMIE.

Lorraine says HMM.

Stewart says NOT THAT DEAR
SWEET OLD LADY.
WHO'D A THOUGHT BUT
THE EVIDENCE
SEEMS TO BE
OVERWHELMING.

Lorraine says YES, IT DOES KIND OF
MAKES SENSE, YOU KNOW?
WHY ON EARTH
WOULD SHE BOTHER
TO GO THROUGH
ALL OF THAT?

Pointing to the screen, Stewart says OH, WHO'S THAT?!
WHAT'S THAT?!

A woman wearing a white wig slips away.

Lorraine says I THINK THAT'S
GRAMMIE!
THAT'S GRAMMIE!
I'M SURE!
WHAT IS SHE
DOING IN HERE?

Stewart says WELL, I THINK
SHE'S TRYING
TO MAKE A BREAK
FOR IT.
CALL THE
SECURITY GUARD.
GET HIM TO STOP
GRAMMIE BEFORE
SHE LEAVES
THE BUILDING.

Lorraine picks up a phone and says GREAT.
OKAY, OKAY.
HELLO, SECURITY.
YES, THIS IS THE STUDIO
OF THE VIRTUAL CLASSROOM.
AN OLD LADY JUST
RAN THROUGH HERE.
SHE HAS SHORT
GREYISH WHITE HAIR.
SHE'S WEARING
GLASSES.
A WHITE SWEATER.
PLEASE DON'T LET HER
LEAVE THE BUILDING.
YES, WE NEED
TO TALK TO HER.

Stewart leans to listen to the conversation.

The security guard says OKAY, MA'AM, I'LL
KEEP AN EYE OUT.
SO YOU SAID AN OLD WOMAN
WITH SHORT GREYISH HAIR
AND A WHITE SWEATER?

Lorraine says YES, YES, AND SHE'S
WEARING GLASSES AS WELL,
LIKE A GREEN SWEATER
UNDERNEATH HER SWEATER.

The security guard says OKAY.
WAIT, I THINK I SEE HER
RIGHT HERE IN THE LOBBY.
I'LL TELL HER SHE
HAS A PHONE CALL.
HOLD ON.

Lorraine says OKAY, THANK YOU.

Lorraine and Stewart listen carefully.

The security guard says YOU'VE GOT A
PHONE CALL.

Grammie says WHO, ME?

The security guard says YEAH, YOU.

Grammie says ME?

The security guard says YEAH.

Grammie says OH.
WHO COULD IT BE?

The security guard says I HAVE NO IDEA.

Grammie says HELLO.
HELLO.

Lorraine says HELLO.

Grammie says THIS IS GRAMMIE.
WHO IS THIS?

Lorraine says OH, HELLO, GRAMMIE.
THIS IS MISSUS G.
MISTER C AND MYSELF HAVE
BEEN TRYING TO FIND OUT
WHO WAS SENDING
RENE, ISAAC,
AND SOPHIA ALL
THOSE EMAILS.
WE THINK IT'S YOU.

Grammie says AH, OH, WELL,
OH, OH, DEAR,
WELL I GUESS I KNEW
SOMEBODY WOULD PUT
TWO AND TWO TOGETHER
EVENTUALLY.
YES.
IT WAS ME.

Lorraine and Stewart nod.

Grammie continues BUT I ONLY DID IT BECAUSE
I WANTED TO HELP.

Lorraine says BUT GRAMMIE, I
DON'T UNDERSTAND.
WHY DID THIS HELP?

Grammie says WELL, I WAS NEVER ANY
GOOD AT MATH AS A CHILD.
IT WAS ALWAYS A
STRUGGLE FOR ME
SO I KIND OF
GAVE UP.
BOY, WAS THAT
EVER A MISTAKE,
SO I FIGURED IF I COULD
GET SOME YOUNGSTERS
HOOKED AND TRY
AND MAKE IT FUN,
THEY MIGHT REALIZE THAT MATH
CAN BE FUN AND USEFUL.

Lorraine says WELL, MATH CERTAINLY
CAN BE FUN, I AGREE.
WELL, GRAMMIE, YOU'VE
CERTAINLY DONE THAT
AND WE'VE BEEN CHASING YOU
ALL OVER THE GLOBE.
WELL, TAKE CARE, GRAMMIE,
AND SEE YOU SOON.

Grammie says WELL, BYE BYE, DEAR,
AND I'M SO SORRY
IF I CAUSED A
FEW HEADACHES.

Lorraine says OH, NO PROBLEMS
AT ALL.

Lorraine hangs up and says WELL, WELL.

Stewart says WELL, JUST AS
I THOUGHT.
SHE IS INDEED A SWEET
LITTLE OLD LADY.

Loraine says YEAH, AND SHE LAID
QUITE A TRAIL FOR US,
DIDN'T SHE, BUT IT WAS A
GREAT OPPORTUNITY
TO SEE AND LEARN ABOUT
ALL THESE EXOTIC PLACES.

Stewart says THAT'S TRUE.

Lorraine continues AMAZINGLY, BEAUTIFUL,
NOT TO MENTION
A CHANCE TO BRUSH UP
ON OUR ACTING SKILLS.

Stewart says YES.

Lorraine says AND MY FAVOURITE
ROLE WAS LAST WEEK'S
WHERE I WAS THE
QUEEN CLEOPATRA.
AND YOU, THE SLAVE.

Stewart saysI WOULD HAVE NEVER
GUESSED THAT THAT WAS
YOUR FAVOURITE SKETCH.

Lorraine says AH, COME ON, MISTER C, FOR
GOOD OLD TIME'S SAKE.

She takes out her blue cap and wears the Egyptian wig.

Lorraine continues AH HAH.
SLAVE, FETCH
YOUR FAN.
AND THANK ALL
OF YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR
ALL YOUR PARTICIPATION
DURING THE MATH MYSTERIES
AND I BID THEE FAREWELL.
NOT SO QUICKLY, I'M
GOING TO CATCH A COLD.

Speaking with a funny voice, Stewart says A THOUSAND PARDONS,
MY HIGHNESS.

The caption changes to “Please remember to log off! Pick up handset. Press number sign 7. Press 1 to confirm. Hang up handset. See you next time!”
