Think. Long and hard.
What would she say?
What is her final statement to a cold, uncaring planet?

VERONICA

"Dear world...
Believe it or not, I knew about fear;
I knew the way loneliness stung
I hid behind smiles and crazy hot clothes;
I learned to kiss boys with my tongue."

J.D.

That's good.

VERONICA

"But oh, the world, it held me down;
It weighed like a concrete prom queen crown."

HEATHER CHANDLER

No one thinks a pretty girl has feelings
No one gets her insecurity
I am more than shoulder pads and makeup
No one sees the me inside of me...

J.D.

Keep going. This has to be good enough to fool the cops.

"They couldn't see past my rockstar mystique
They wouldn't dare look in my eyes
But just underneath was a terrified girl
Who clings to her pillow and cries!

MS. FLEMING & HEATHER CHANDLER

"Box up my clothing for Goodwill
And give the poor my Nordic Track
Donate my car to crippled kids
Or to those ghetto moms on crack
Give them my hats and my CDs
My pumps and my flats, my three TVs!"

HEATHER CHANDLER, FACULTY

"No one thinks a pretty girl has feelings;
But I weep for all I failed to be
Maybe I can help the world by leaving;
Maybe that the me inside of me."
