Miss Beadle: (tallying the president votes for Nellie and Elmer) Well, it looks like we have a two-way tie.
Mary: But it can't be. We're supposed to have 25 votes.
Nellie: That's right. We'll have to wait. My brother went to the outhouse. (Willie comes back in)
Miss Beadle: Willie, you didn't vote.
Willie: No, ma'am.
Miss Beadle: Well, would you mind? We're waiting. (Willie writes down a name, folds up paper, puts it in voting jar) Laura?
Laura: (looks at paper, smiles) Elmer Dopkins!
Nellie: Willie! How could you?
Willie: Because you're always picking on me, that's why! And Elmer won't let you!
