Rafael: Go away and stop following us. Our club is for boys only.

Hannah: But I want to join.

Rafael: You do, huh? Did you know that to join our club, you have to go through an initiation?

Hannah: Okay, I’ll do that. What do I have to do?

Rafael: You have to endure weeks of hazing. We’ll be putting you through your paces to make sure you’re club material.

Hannah: I’m willing to do that. I can do anything you boys can do. Watch me!

Rafael: I’m not so sure. If you want to be one of the guys, you’ll have to do everything we tell you to do, even if you don’t want to.

Hannah: Everything?

Rafael: Yeah, everything. If we tell you to eat dirt, you have to eat dirt. If we tell you to stand outside in the rain, you have to do that, too. Get the picture?

Hannah: Yeah, I’ve got the picture.

Rafael: If we tell you to pull a prank, you have to do it. If we tell you to streak, you have to do that, too.

Hannah: You can’t be serious. That really crosses the line.

Rafael: We decide what crosses the line and what doesn’t. See? I knew you’d be too chicken to join our club.

Hannah: You’re right. I don’t want to join any club where the members are stupid enough to do all of those things. I’m starting my own club – one where you don’t have to humiliate yourself to get in.

Rafael: Suit yourself. I knew you weren’t club material.

Hannah: Thank goodness for that!
