Announcer: The word is “Demoralized”.

Contestant: “Demoralized”. Can I have the definition please?

Announcer: “Demoralized” To have one’s confidence undermined, to be disheartened.

Contestant: “Demoralized”. Can I hear it used in a sentence please?

Contestant: “Demoralized”, D-E-M-O-R-A-L-I-Z-E-D, “Demoralized”.

Announcer: Correct.

Bad form, Precious Family, bad form. Well, since they didn't appreciate your efforts, I'm assuming that Precious Youngest will be cooking dinner tomorrow night?

You are soooooo funny. I'm sorry though. After 4 days of living in a hotel, I'd LOVE a homecooked meal.

I would have "moralized" you if you cooked me dinner.

Cook for some people who do not live with you on occasion. I have found that those who do not live here tend to appreciate my cooking, and if they are eating said meal with my family it tends to mean no one else is crappy about the food I shopped for, prepared, and graciously served. Because doing so would make 'em look like [bleeping bleeps].
