Can someone explain the expression איכסס to me? Lea is playing Cinderella in a school play and is supposed to kiss Prince Charming. She says, "איכסס... אני לא מנשקת בנים" Where does it come from? What does it mean?

It's an onomatopoeia for when you're grossed out or disgusted by something. Like "ew" or "ick" in English. Note, it's pronounced "ikhs", and technically spelled איכס, but the extra ס is just to show that the sound is drawn out.

Three similar statements, but I can't figure them out. Lea and her friend draw together:
לאה החבר שלה מציירים אחד לשני חייזרים Lea and her friend depict each other as aliens?
לאה והחבר שלה מציירים אחד על השני Lea and her friend draw each other?
מציירים את המורות כמכשפות They draw the teachers as witches

HIlfe?

What's the context? It could mean "striped ribbon" or "missed movie", or maybe a few other things.

Hi Drink

אמנם יש פה את כל האלמנטים והמרכיבים לסרט מעניין וטוב אבל הם לא מתחברים טוב יחד ומרוב כדורים באוויר שמנסים ללהטט ביניהם יוצא סרט מפוספס, לא מספק, ומאכזב במיוחד סרט שהיו לו את הנתונים להיות טוב והוא אינו כזה

Ah. Here it means a "missed [opportunity for a good] movie".
