(Kim holds up “APPLAUSE” sign, canned applause)
I must say . . I am . . excited about our show for this morning . . as usual it's all about that old bugaboo . . fear.
(phoney) Friends, here in the audience and at home in TV land . . . do you suffer from day to day fear?
Do you spend your nights in fitful sleep, waking up, dry parched throat, a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach?
(big phoney smile) Chances are it is because of that extra slice Poppa John’s Triple Hot Pizza you ate before bed last night!

Kim: Oh Fear Doctor, you silly! . . . You did a funny!

Kim holds “LAUGHTER” sign

But seriously . . . Why don’t we get right to the phones Kim Courageous, I am sure the phone lines are jammed with folks wanting to chat with the Fear Doctor. . anxious to tell me every little paranoia in their lives . .
So who is the first ‘fraidy-cat on line this morning?

Kim, nervous: Ummm, well, maybe you best just keep on chatting for a bit Fear Doctor until someone . . that is until we . .

Stacy, chuckles: Don’t you go and feel scared embarrassed there Kim Courageous . . . the Fear Doctor knows what's goin’ on . .

Kim: You do? . . .

Kim, nervous: Yah, yah, that’s it! . . . Oh wait . . here’s a call now . . .

Stacy, picks up phone:

No, we will not accept complaint calls from Poppa John’s Pizza . .
(listens)
Oh yeh? . . Well all I have to say is your pizza crusts are hard and soggy!
slams phone down
Kim Courageous, could you please do a better job of screening these calls? I mean, couldn’t you have chosen a better call?

Kim: It's hard to choose between one call. . . . Wait, another call, it's James in Seattle.
