The family finally arrives at the Spelling Bee. While all the other kids are pacing nervously, all Brick can think about is a pancake house Sue told him about. Apparently, they make the pancakes right at your table. This nonchalant attitude makes Mike realize that Brick could care less about the Spelling Bee. And that could give him the edge he needs to win it all. Let the spelling begin!
The words come fast and furious and the disqualification dings from the judges are swift and decisive. But Brick is on fire and makes it down to the final two. The word is: Chiaroscurist. Brick says, “C-H-I-A-R-O-S-C-U-R-I-S-T. Then he bows his head and whispers one more “T.” DING! Brick is out of the competition.
Brick is upset that he lost, but not because he won’t get a trophy. He really wanted to go to Washington, DC. This road trip was a lot of fun and he really wanted to go on another. At least they can still enjoy the ride home. They’ll even stop to see the world’s biggest ball of paint on the way. Sounds like F-U-N!
