Edna: Margie, I think you're going to like this story I found in the newspaper today. This man travels around the country in a bus with his little dog, encouraging people to do one million acts of kindness in their lifetime. Isn't that a wonderful idea?
Margie: How sweet! I love Bogart. I bet he's a great companion. Maybe they'll come through Jericho one day. Edna, does this mean you want to do a kind act for someone?
Edna: Despite what you think, Margie, I am a kind soul. And even though this is One Million Acts of Kindness week, I try to do something kind every day, all the year round. Even if it's something small like waving to the shut-in next door when I go out to get the mail, I've found that even the smallest act of kindness can transform someone's day.
But I suppose you had something more specific in mind?
Margie: Edna, I'd like to watch you do a kind act tomorrow. Can't say that's something I've ever seen.
Edna: Margie, the kindest thing I can do right this moment is not to say what I'm really thinking.
