Groove High, cutting room floor

I wanted Scoot to have a very limited vocabulary. The odd word here and there. Well it made me and the editor laugh at least. Oh well... that's showbiz. Still, Scoot's few words are gone but never forgotten. When my kids are having potatoes, I lean over slowly and stare, wide eyed... and in Scoot's voice I say, 'Mmm po- tay -toh'. They laugh, but I'm sure they will have me sectioned eventually.

Is that a foot?

Needless to say, this didn't get through S&P. A classic from the cutting room floor.
