Black and white block text appears next to her. ON SCREEN TEXT: TIP #1 CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO TO GOODLINESS BenDeLaCreme stands in front of the backdrop, teacup in hand. A table holding a lamp rests next to her. BENDELACREME: The only thing more important than a hot meal is a clean home. As you can see, I take a lot of pride in my pristine-- BenDeLaCreme gestures to the table and suddenly notices a spot on the lampshade. BENDELACREME: Is that a smudge? BenDeLaCreme whips out a cloth from her shirt and rubs aggressively at the spot. BENDELACREME: No worries! That'll just come right out, I'm sure, with just a little hard work and perseverance. What is this indelible doo-doo? She picks up the lamp by the neck and rubs harder before tossing it away in frustration. BENDELACREME: Out, darn spot! All right. Ahh! She smiles and tosses her hair as though nothing happened. BenDeLaCreme stands in front of the backdrop. White and black block text appears next to her.

Love yourself in every way possible. BenDeLaCreme stands in front of the backdrop. BENDELACREME: When others throw shade, turn on a light. When life hands you lemons, make a delish rosemary-infused lemon tart. And take care of your body. I'm not talking about becoming some sort of fitness model. I mean, just treat it with respect. And yes, being tobacco-free is part of that. And you, darling, are much too beautiful to let tobacco mess with your look. Well, class, that's it. I've given you all that I have to give. And you've learned everything that I have to teach. (laughs) I sincerely hope that I've left you feeling as flawless as you truly are. Ta-ta, treasures! BenDeLaCreme vanishes in a cloud of sparkles.
