Mason:  Jason, man, I was cleaning the office the other day, and I kinda was checkin’ Ella out.

Jason:  Oh really?

Mason:  Yeah. I mean she was looking really good and I was just trying to start a conversation with her.

Jason:  You don’t say.

Mason:  But she was, like, weirded out, man. It’s like she could read my mind or something. I don’t know.

Jason:  Whoa. You know, man, I just got this weird feeling that we’ve sat on this couch and had a conversation like this like 100 times.

Mason:  Hmm.

Beren:  Actually, we have. This is the 100th episode of the English, baby! soap opera.

Dale:  We’ve taught some words 100 times. We’ve taught some grammar 100 times.

Jason:  And some mistakes we’ve made a few. We’ve had our share of evil twins and comas, but we’ve come through.

Marni & Ella: And we go on and on and on and on.

All:  One hundred soaps done on Ebaby! One hundred soaps done, my friends! One hundred soaps done, one hundred soaps done! Learning is so fun with one hundred soaps done on Ebaby!

Jason:  Yeah!

Mason had a weird interaction with Ella recently where it seemed like she could read his mind. He thinks she’s cute and wants to ask her out, but he’s not sure what’s up with all that freaky psychic stuff. So he goes to Jason to ask for advice.

But in the middle of their conversation, Beren pops up with a big announcement. It’s the 100th episode of the English, baby! soap opera. The cast celebrates the occasion with a special tribute to the show that makes you laugh, cry, and learn English, As the World Learns.
