(Miss Beadle walks into the classroom and finds the words "Jason Loves Laura" on the blackboard; Laura is very upset)
Miss Beadle: I don't know who did this, but I intend to find out. Now, we are not opening one book until whoever wrote this on the blackboard stands up and apologizes to Jason and to Laura. (long pause) Nellie?
Nellie: I didn't do it!
Miss Beadle: I certainly hope not. You've done enough already. Well, I'm waiting for an answer!
Jason: (stands up) I did it, Miss Beadle, and I'm not sorry, because it's the truth!
