Of course they don't ever actually write the word that was said, but what are some books where swearing was implied? I remember when Claudia got her gigantic earring caught on something in Island Adventure. Dawn's mom said something when she was driving in the snow in Snowbound. Any other times you can think of?
Does it count that Will said "hell" in SS #2? When I was a kid I remember being shocked that the word "hell" was in a BSC book. It was when he and Claudia were at the dance talking about their dead grandparents. Will said he didn't believe in heaven or hell, but he thought his grandmother's spirit was somewhere, watching over him.

^Yep. Claudia is the one I can picture swearing the most. Not meanly towards people but at situations like her earring or at an art project gone wrong. I see her locked in her room with a paint brush in her hand, swearing in frustration at a half done painting.
I can also see Mary Anne swearing for completely different reasons. Would she really just smash a coffee mug without slipping in an "Eff you, Dawn!!!" too?
