The head woman says that they get to wear makeup on their “Rumspringa”, a time to get away to realize that Amish living is the better of the two. She asks if they really have not seen her show “The Edge of Tomorrow”. The head woman asks what part of “No Tv” does she not understand. Victoria says that she is touched and loves them all.
