HIRUNI: I won, yes!
HIRUNI: I’m really excited, because I’ve never been here before. This is a big opportunity for me, to come here.
SAVANNAH: I’m so excited for tomorrow!
NILUKA: I’m happy. This is my first time here. When Hiruni won, I couldn’t believe it.
ROBERTA: The truth is they’re all winners. Just, wow. Help other parents with Deaf children and help their children have dreams, and then make them come true.
HIRUN TO SAVANNAH: Hollywood’s a cool place.
SAVANNAH: How did I feel when I won the 48-hour challenge?
HIRUNI: There were many good, good, good submissions out there.
SAVANNAH: I was anxious and unsure about who would win.
HIRUNI: I thought that I wouldn’t be one of the finalists.
SAVANNAH: When I saw Hiruni win, I wanted to congratulate her. I felt happy that she won.
HIRUNI: Then after that, when Savannah’s video popped up, I was so thrilled that it was her! Because I know her!
SAVANNAH AND HIRUNI: Go Nyle! Woo!
SAVANNAH TO HIRUNI: We’re almost there, yes!
HIRUNI: You feel nervous or not? I do, I feel nervous. I feel like there are bats in my stomach.
SAVANNAH: Oh yeah, I think there’s more than a thousand.
SAVANNAH: I wonder when Nyle will go—first, second, third, or so?
HIRUNI: I don’t know, but I hope that he’ll win first place.
NYLE: I look different, right?
SAVANNAH: Yeah, of course.
NYLE: You enjoying L.A., California so far? Is it your first time here?
HIRUNI: Yes, it’s my first time.
SAVANNAH: I think maybe it’s my second time.
NYLE: This mask was put over my head. I refused to shave my head. My hair’s too dear to me. Your hair’s dear to you, too, right?
NYLE: I was talking with my partner, Peta, about the Mask. Looks like that gave them the idea to assign it to me. I’m like, perfect. That’s my favorite movie.
NYLE: You both did a great job! I was super impressed.
HIRUNI AND SAVANNAH: Thank you!
NYLE: In the entertainment world, there are usually trailers.
SAVANNAH: Oh, but where is Peta’s?
NYLE: Peta has a trailer of her own, another one over there.
SAVANNAH: I’m really excited. You can see “Dancing with the Stars” right over there!

SAVANNAH: Do they practice until midnight?
NYLE: I think so, yeah!
