Tess Coleman and her teenage daughter Anna Coleman do not get along. After an argument on a Thursday night at a Chinese restaurant they receive a fortune cookie from the restaurant owner that makes them switch bodies the next day. In this monologue Anna Coleman flips out on her teacher Mr Bates, who unjustly gave her a bad grade because her mother Tess turned him down for a school dance when they were at school and now he is taking his revenge on her daughter. Perfect monologue for girls.

|ANNA COLEMAN: "Mr. Bates, may I please speak with you? By what stretch of the imagination . . . I mean, like, how could I, like, get an "F"? I mean, what mistakes did I make? That was a college-level analysis. In a matter of fact I most certainly am qualified of making that point. "As in Hamlet, 'what's done is done'"? That's "Macbeth," you know-nothing twit. Bates. Elton Bates. Griffith High School. Well, you asked me, I mean, my mom to the prom, but she turned you down. And now you're taking it out on her daughter, aren't you? Aren't you?! Oh come on, it was high school dance. I mean, you've got to let go and move on, man. And if you don't, I'm ! sure the school board would love to hear about your pathetic vendetta against an innocent student. Oh, and by the way Elton, she had a boyfriend, and you were weird."|
