SCENE 1 Duane, Lamar and Tyrone need a way to cool off after their basketball game. Oscar hangs a sign from his can reading "Lemonade" and hawks some. The boys gladly order some glasses, only to discover it's hot lemonade. Oscar realizes his sign was incomplete and adds the word "HOT" to it. The boys insist no one would want hot lemonade, until Grundgetta appears and orders a double. As the boys head off, Duane takes a quick sip and finds it's not that bad.

Film A girl goes to school somewhere in Africa. We see the girl getting ready to go to school, as she washes herself and brushes her teeth, puts on her clothes, brushes her hair, and takes her lunch, all with some help from her mother. We see her walking past her neighbors and watching her classmates play outside as she arrives at school. The bell rings and the girl enters the school, where the teacher is passing out chalk to her students. We see the teacher teaching the students the English words: "a boy", "a girl", "a man", "a woman," which she has written on the board, along with a drawing for each word. The students repeat the words, then write them down on their individual chalkboards as we hear the girl remark, "We are learning to read and write." The students then jump up and down, as the teacher looks on, smiling. Next, we see the students jumping outside excitedly, now that school has finished.
