[at the school spelling bee in the gym]

Ms. Cross:
Now, we're gonna start things off with "grovel."

Gravel? Like little rocks?

Ms. Cross:
No, grovel, like "get down on your knees and grovel."

Get down on my knees? [shocked] What?!

Ms. Cross:
Just spell the word.

Uh, G-R-A-V-E-L.

Ms. Cross:
No, Chuckie, you spelled "gravel." I meant "grovel", G-R-O-V-E-L. You weren't listening. Sorry, Chuckie.

Who cares?
