SAMPLE SCRIPT 1
[TO CAMERA] Thanks, Dawn. Behind me is the Mount Vernon Education Center. This is where visitors come to explore George Washington’s adventures as a young man and the long list of accomplishments that make him one of the most important figures in American history. Also inside… some of the most famous dentures in history… But they’re not made of wood!
SAMPLE SCRIPT 2
[TO CAMERA] President Washington laid the cornerstone of the United States’ Capitol building over 200 years ago on September 18, 1793. The Capitol building’s history reflects the history of America: as the country has grown so has the Capitol. Today the Capitol Building is a widely recognized icon of American Democracy. The Building is actively used by our government's Legislative Branch, is the backdrop for our Presidential inaugurations, and is a public museum of American art and history. Although the Capitol has a long rich history—its story is still being written—the narrative of the Capitol can be simplified into five major categories: built, burned, rebuilt, expanded, and restored.

[TO CAMERA] Thanks, Casey. Today we are privileged to not only have special access to the Elizabethan inspired Paster Reading Room, but also to the room’s namesake, Dr. Gail Kern Paster. Dr. Paster is the former director of the Folger Shakespeare Library and has spent countless hours immersed in research in this very room.
