Farkle Minkus: The nation of Troy was charmed by a beautiful wooden horse. They neglected it considering what was inside. And they lost everything, because of outer beauty. Don't be fooled by a pretty wrapper. I mean, who keeps the wrapping paper?
Riley Matthews: I wear ribbons.
Farkle Minkus: Okay... And our concluding statement will be made by Lucas Friar.
Lucas Friar: There can be absolutely no debate that the quest for outer beauty at the expense of one's inner self is the road of personal destruction. People make assumptions. I've been labelled a jock and a cowboy. And this is from my friends. But here is a little secret: I like school, and I do pretty well. You might look at me and assume, "baseball player." I look at me, and I know, "I better get good grades." Because what's on the inside has to be more important than what's on the outside. To get into a good college and into a good life. Because beauty is not skin deep. Thank you.
Smackle: [in "Valley girl" accent] Oh my gosh, I'm like so internally unprepared and scared.
Academic Bottom Half: We finally got her.
Smackle: Maybe that's what you would assume I would say, considering the effort I've put into my appearance.
Academic Top Half: Uh-oh.
Smackle: I'm here to argue today that beauty actually is "skin deep." So I've done some research, and I've learned that it is. When you get compliments from people who don't ordinarily compliment you. When people look at you differently. Packaging does matter. I wasn't pretty, then I was. This is a world where "pretty" seems better somehow. Which is too bad, but it's not debatable. However, I also learned that if you get swept up about what you are on the outside, you can lose who you are on the inside. Even though it is easy to be fooled by the beauty of the Trojan Horse, its real power comes from the army within. Intelligence, compassion, integrity, courage. That army is the real you. No matter what you look like. So, even though beauty may be skin deep, beauty is nowhere near as important as the army inside. And I'll try not to forget that.
