Running a multiline shell command

I am using Snow Leopard. Yes there is an expect command. I just read the man page for it. WOW! There is a lot there. From what I gather, I can create a file that contains all the responses I will be presented with, and expect will respond to those prompts accordingly. 

Now I did succeed once in pasting this into the tsch terminal window and I got exactly what I wanted, but subsequent attempts tell me I am using the wrong password. I suspect the wrong line endings at this point. I will look into that.
