She stands at the door, waiting for an answer…

Elfride: *to self* This is the place… it looks nice enough, and very ordinary – **knocks**
Tabitha: Okay – whaddya want?
Elfride: Oh – hello – I’m here to see –
Tabitha: Aw, #@$%, ANOTHER elf!
Elfride: Well, yes, I am, but –
Tabitha: We’ve got TOO MANY #@$% pointy-ear freaks here already – GO AWAY!
Elfride: *raises eyebrow* I suppose you could say I’ve found the right place, if as she said, there’s elves here – but too many -- ? **knocks again**
Tabitha: #@$%, YOU again! What part of “Go AWAY” don’t you understand?
Elfride: I am here to SEE some of those “pointy-ear freaks”, as you so charmingly put it! And they are waiting to see ME –
Tabitha: Nuh-UH! You’ll just wind up STAYIN’, like they all have!
Oona: Goodness, what is all this racket about, Tabitha? Oh, are you Elfride? I know you’ve been expected – please, come in –
Elfride: Thank you – you must be Oona –
Tabitha: WHAT! F’cryin’ out loud, Oona, DON’T let another one in!
Oona: Don’t be silly, Tabby; she’s an invited guest. Ms. Beamlette approved. I suggest you take it up with her, not Elfride. Please, do come on in –
Tabitha: NO! Someone’s gotta draw a line here! Just because Ms. Beamlette SAID it was OK, doesn’t mean it IS. Go away, Frito, or whatever your name is!
Oona: It looks as if I need some help here -- *calling* PALADIN! MALFOY!
Paladin: Okay, Tabitha – come along quietly, and no one’ll get hurt –
Tabitha: HURT? You ain’t seen hurt yet – getcher mitts offa me! Malfoy, how come YOU’RE in on this?
Malfoy: ‘Cause… I don’t want you hurt … or anyone else…
Tabitha: If you aren’t WITH me, you’re AGAINST me! Stoppit, #@$%!
Malfoy: Shhhhhhhh, Tabby… calm down… please…
Tabitha: **thrashing**Noooooooo – you got it all WRONG – you should be stoppin’ that pointy-eared freakette from comin’ in – let me GO! #@$%!!!!!
Paladin: Whew -- you kiss your little sister with that mouth?
Tabitha: Hey, what the #@$%!!! **holds out hand** …Oh cr*p, is that rain, or bird sh*t?
Will we ever understand Tabitha’s grudge against Elves? Maybe...
At any rate, Tabitha takes to task Ms. Beamlette, with interesting results –
